    How the position thing works on Virtua Racing for the genesis? I (re)bought this game some days ago and have been playing in the normal level. It doesn´t matter which position I end the race always the HUGE 25th place appears. Do you need to always finish in 1st place to get the correct position after the race?

    I don't think so! You aren't playing with a 32x attached, are you?

    Does anyone remember the thing about the Virtua Racing cart making phones ring? Or is that just me?

    Nops, radsil.

    It´s the normal genesis cart. I don´t even own a 32x, but I´m playing on my Cdx system. Anyway it´s all way weird. I think it was supposed to show the place you ended the race, isn´t it?

    Yeah, that would be the point, I would think. Maybe the CDX has some hardware bug or something? If I have time maybe I can email Sega tech support and see if there is any known problem with playing Virtua Racing on a CDX...

    The big virtua racing cart for genny will not work with a 32x. I have heard of CDX and Nomad having problems with some titles but I cannot confirm this myself.

    it doesn't work in Nomad, CDX, Genesis 3, and through the 32X.

    virtua racing has a extra cpu in the cart according to the fcc a cdx can not play they cart with out shielding its the same reason they claim you cant use a 32x with a cdx it actually works fine but it produces to much electrical disturbance that might be the problem with your game

    Actually I was able to play virtua racing on my nomad, very sweet. No problems whatsoever.

    Indeed, this FCC regulation is a funny thing. The only machine Virtua Racing *definitely* doesn't work on is the Genesis 3.

    As far as I know, some US versions of the Genesis 2 (the ones distributed by Majesco) claim that they don't work with the Sega CD, but of course they do. Again, FCC regulation is the culprit - don't believe something is incompatible until you've tried it yourself! :)

    I remember several years back when I was looking at the genesis 3, thinking if I should buy one, im sure glad I didn't. If I had, no sega CD and some games won't work (as I just found out with this topic).Wow, why would anyone ever want one of those things?

    I got one, and they're actually quite neat.. they're TINY and really easy to carry around or useful when you are out of space. not as single system, but along with a model 1 or 2 genny.
