straight passthrough.when you plug a megadrive game into the 32x.
does it just pass threw the 32x. or is 32x hardware activated.
by checking the header. hardware-wise, 32X and Genny carts are absolutely identical.also how does the 32x tell the diffrence between what kinda game is pluged into it. i.e 32x / megadrive
everything. in most games, the genny supplies half the sound and graphics. i.e. in MK2, the genesis does the sprites, and the 32X does the backgrounds.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.
do you mean the eprom carts? cause those are the only backup devices I made. there are no plans for them.. I killed a bootleg cart (they use standard eproms instead of maskroms with different pinout), added sockets, rewired the additional pins for up to 32 MBit. Ex-Cyber helped me bigtime with tracing the right pins.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.
Saturn and 32X have certain things in common, but to say that Saturn is "2 32x's slapped together in parallel" is pretty ridiculous. It's akin to saying that Neo Geo is "2 Genesises slapped together", or that Amiga is "2 Macintoshes slapped together" - it might roughly describe the architectural similarities and performance differences, but it's not accurate in any technical sense. I'm not an expert on the 32X architecture (I'd estimate that there are fewer than 20 of those worldwide), but as far as I know it's pretty severely lacking compared to Saturn.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.
