I'm not super upset with buying the spacer (eventually), but that's only because I got a "Saga Genesis with adapter" for 25 bucks.

It doesn't happen until the second half of the game. Side effects were corrupted/nuked save data, random graphical glitches and crashes which may relate to the save data glitch, and the lock-on soft lock happening more often than usual which would lock up the controller input and then reboots into Sonic and Knuckles. Can anyone confirm this?
I loved my 32X, and I'm going through the same struggle as you. I have to keep on switching consoles everytime I want to play a 32X game as I usually use it as a video co-processor for the Model 2's bad video output if I ever feel to lazy to go down with my Model 1. I also use my 32X without the spacer. It isn't recommended that you do without, but I wouldn't put it top priority if you have a Model 1. I have caught my eye on a 32X Patch Cables with 3.5mm phono breakout for my Model 1 with a female Mini DIN port rather than a male so I can get Stereo out of my Model 1 and so I can just leave my pass through cable in the av in port of my 32X as long as I don't lose it since it's fairly easy to find one 3rd party.

if you put in a non-Sonic game with battery backup (like, say, NHL 95 because your 7 year old brain thinks it would be awesome to play NHL 95 with Knuckles (which it would be, by the way))
