    What is this Genesis Hardware?!

    I found this part attached to a Genesis (model 2) in a thrift store. It was a bump sticking out the side attached to the expansion port, noticeable because it was much larger than the normal dust cover. A quick internet search shows a similar item on ebay being listed as a 32x component...

    The final word on TVs

    Ok, this is not another LCD vs. CRT thread. I am more interested in knowing about what's better for specific systems. I've tried my Atari 2600 on an LCD with poor results. The screen changes brightness based on what's on the screen at the time. Whenever the UFO shows up, the screen goes...

    Top Shooter

    Do you use the random guessing method for developing Genie codes? Or do you analyze the software? I wish I knew how to make codes.

    Top Shooter

    This is how I got Super Bubble Bobble to work! Just a simple game genie code. But I got it from someone else. I don't know how to make new codes.

    Top Shooter

    Ah, I see. Very interesting! So, I am guessing that the software would need some kind of signal to know when a coin has been inserted. I would have thought the controller port would be the best place to get that signal to the program; perhaps with a key combo the player could not normally...

    Top Shooter

    I gather it's for the MegaTech or MegaPlay arcade systems (the equivalent of Nintendo's Player's Choice). Most likely the MegaPlay, where a player can buy credits. Still, that is just a MegaDrive. There should be some button combo to make the thing start.

    Top Shooter

    Has anyone tried Top Shooter for Genesis? How do you get passed the "Insert Coin" screen to start the game. It seems to be designed for Megadrive-based Arcade hardware. So, what would be the key combination to start it? I've tried with both flash cart and emulator.

    New Genesis Games?

    If you want to count the SegaCD, then there are no excuses; CDRs are the most accessible medium. A game could be mass produced for pennies (or at least much cheaper than carts, tapes, or floppy disks). I was thinking of simple ROMs. Berzerk was the last thing I saw on the Genesis that...

    New Genesis Games?

    I appreciate both points. However, simple games like Paul Lee's Berzerk are always enjoyed. On that first point, there's currently a version of Berzerk in development (publicly available at Denial, the Vic 20 community website), and it is, dare I say, equal if not better than the Genesis...

    New Genesis Games?

    Last year, there were 33 new original games and 3 new hardware devices released for the Commodore VIC 20. 17 games the year before. This machine was released 10 years before the Sega Genesis, and still has an active hobbyist scene. So, why aren't there any new games for our beloved Genesis (a...

    Single Screen Platform Games for Genesis?

    Are there any single screen platform games for Genesis? Something similar to Donkey Kong or Popeye. The closest I know scroll a little (Flicky, Rainbow Island). EDIT: Here's my list so far. Can you help me complete it? Snow Bros. Wani Wani World

    Light gun troubles?

    Same problem! The lower right quadrant of the screen doesn't register the light gun. Very frustrating! It doesn't seem to make sense.

    Rare Sega titles

    I found a page that shows a rare unlicensed Genesis game very similar Pokemon Stadium (a bootleg of the Nintendo title). However, I have never come across the ROM. It appears on David Haywood's Homepage. Does anyone have a connection to him or know where these images circulate? Its obviously...

    ATSC and 16 bit Genesis

    Will a Genesis connected to an ATSC tuner have a better image than the same hook up on an NTSC tuner?
