you know what I would like to know about that little clone?

1. Does the 32X work?
2. How does Virtua Racing work? (the Genesis version, it draws a lot of electrical power)

If you really don't want to pull out the pin you should just try using flux or try tinning your wires before putting them on the pin. I don't want to lift the pin...

I believe what you are looking for, is a voltage regulator...

So in that case, I would say just to cut it down, or fork over decent money for a weller Iron and relocate it... oh i got my expansion pack, but im sure some people (for whatever reason they would), would rather not have ...

Here's a picture of the jumper pack..

Wow, totally a single-chip design, I don't even see the CPU at all..

It probably will have distorted sound, but it could also be better.. I wouldn't know, without hearing Sonic 2 starting, and saying "SEGA".. (as I can compare them)
