So it appears the github repository I linked to originally for this request back in 2016 was an abandoned fork. Just today I found the upstream of that fork on SourceForge, which still receives updates to this day.

I was under the impression that games were somewhat excluded from the requirement of needing to be actively maintained, as at some point a game will become 'feature complete', and not receive updates.

I believe so. The software center says 'Software up to Date', even after pressing the 'check for updates' button. And using sudo eopkg up in the terminal also shows it to be up-to-date.

Commander-Zal added a comment to T1285: Kega Fusion.

According to this comparison sheet, Kega Fusion is the only Linux compatible emulator that has full speed emulation and full compatibility with all commercial games. It also supports the Sega Master System, Game Gear, and older Sega consoles that the other emulators do not, which would normally require their own individual emulators (where as Kega Fusion would be an all-in-one solution).

Thanks for packaging this! However, upon attempting to use Caprice, I find that it is impossible to load disk or tape files into the emulator as it arrives from the Software Center. It only allows you to load files from the ./disk, ./tape, and ./snap directories, which as far as I can tell don't exist anywhere on the system.
