32x opinions/suggestions

Post#1 » Thu Feb 16, 2012 10:26 am

Hey gang, so I have a 32x and am going to try and get it working, currently the only game I have for it is the Virtua Racing, however I can't test it because it won't work with the Mega Drive MK1, only the MK2 which apparently had an additional chip that allowed polygons etc. So I am bidding on a mk2 mega drive at the moment and wondered what other games I should bother to get? Obviously I want Chaotix but doubt I will ever afford it! Any other good games or worthwhile/rare games I should consider? also is the video output purely handled by the mega drive base unit and its connection to the tv? thanks guys

I'm not sure I'm grasping the concept of that fully yet, I can't watch the video at the moment as I'm at work.

Meanwhile, anyone got any suggestions/tips for me on this? I'd like to get some good retail games for it?

and I want to make sure I have the optimum video output I can get, I've contacted a seller who, luckily for me, appears to be very keen to sell me any spare parts I require for my 32x setup so now I just need to know what I need. The power requirements are confusing me, I think I need a power supply for the 32x and probably a different one fora mega drive mk 2 as well, can anyone confirm which models work with which power supplies etc? Its all slightly confusing!!

ok so ignore my cock-a-maimy comments about Virtua Racing Deluxe not being able to work on Mega Drive mark 1, apparently it can. The REASON I couldn't ever get my 32x to work was because it requires a cable to connect it to the mega drive and an av cable has to connect from the 32x to the tv, where as I didn't have the connector cable and was purely sending the picture via the megadrive port. school boy error!!

Anyway so I have found a pretty helpful guy on ebay who is selling me the connectors, static pins and an awesome AV cable that ends in composite cables so I will be able to capture from the Mega Drive, Mega CD AND 32x!

So NOW.... I just need to know what games you guys recommend? I know nothing about the 32x game library other than it has a bunch of 32bit versions of games such as DOOM and a few others. Any good shouts aside from the obvious chaotix?

I've been doing some digging and found a few games that appear to be re-releases on the 32x? Such as Supreme Warrior 32x and WWF Raw 32x, these games were already on the mega drive/cd before the 32x came out, is there any benefit in getting the 32x version or is it a cheeky cash in to get people to buy a more expensive version?

Game which i own that i'd recommend are:

Virtua Fighter (A must IMO)
Mortal Kombat 2
Star Wars Arcade
Wrestle Mania the Arcade game
Primal Rage (although I hear the PAL version is very very scarce, not the case here in the U.S.)

Wow !! That's one beautiful game. It has a sorta Ecco vibe but I've not seen anything like it before. Is it rare/expensive ?

Pal version boxed with manual goes for around €200.

There is a reason why I said to buy a flashcart...
