when you plug a megadrive game into the 32x.
does it just pass threw the 32x. or is 32x hardware activated.
also how does the 32x tell the diffrence between what kinda game is pluged into it. i.e 32x / megadrive
do you know how much the 32x relises on the genesis hardware. how far is 32x from being its own system , Ie what does it need from genesis when playing a 32x game.
by the way I was reading your posts about your homeade backup devices , impressive work , i have started to build the multi-councle copyer the one for genny and snes , but i was wondering if I could see the plans for yours , you also stated it played 32x roms , that seems to make sence as long as the card has enought space.
A guy from the game company N space came to our university and was lecturing. He said that the saturn is basically 2 32x's slapped togethor in paralell processing mode. He said Sega was worried about Nintendo and Sony releasing thier console, so they wanted to beat them so they just used thier existing hardware to develop the saturn and relase it quickly. He said if there wasnt such a rush the saturn would have been a completely different design (internally) and would have been more powerful, instead of only really a 1/2 generation advancement from the 32x.
