Re: new project : The GoMad!

well, if youre used to playing genesis on an emulator, it can be a bit jarring playing on a PAL region system, because they tend to run about 18% slower than the NTSC variants due to the power frequency difference (60hz ntsc, 50hz PAL) good point!, never thought of that, so its perfectly normal tha...

Re: 23x was good

ok what you are talking about is not what im talking about. im talking about the two white cables that are inside the sega 32x system. right, sorry! but i did say i couldnt remember which cables you were looking for. could you perhaps solder directly to the undersides of the sockets? might be a bit...

Re: new project : The GoMad!

If you want a REALLY small genny, go for the radica. It's cheap, got good voltage, is about half the size of the genny 3, and better audio/video. The only problem is that you have to use your own cart slot. thanks for the info!, using some of my thinking time i managed to come up with the correct p...

Re: new project : The GoMad!

There is region coding, but the earlier games lacked it. You'll probably want to add a region mod to it. There's no major differences that I know of between the Genesis model 1/2 and Megadrive model 1/2, but there is no Japanese Megadrive 3, so the smallest of the made-by-Sega hardware is only the ...
