EA originally reverse-engineered the Genesis and made their own carts. When EA inquired about publishing its games on the Genesis, the executives felt their proposal would be met with open arms. Instead of embracing the logic in EA’s proposal, Sega of America president Mike Katz had other ideas. Sega wanted to emulate the Nintendo licensing ...
I found Sega Genesis / Mega Drive 101: A beginners guide on Racketboy a great resource. Is the Genesis exactly the same as the Mega Drive? The name is just a trademark issue, it was originally the Mega Drive, but was marketed as Genesis in North America since the name had already been registered. What's the difference between the 1, 2, and 3 ...
There's not a hardware device that would sit between a console and it's cartridge to record the game's state, and that's because it wouldn't be able to do this task. The cartridges hold the game's code, commonly burned into memory chips called ROMs. Cheat devices like the Game Genie or Action Replay sit between the console and these chips, and replace or ...
Doubtful. "It's not yet in the shops, but we've 25 to give away this week..." source The peripheral was intended for release in October 1995 for £29.99, but was cancelled. –segaretro.org/Hyperscore This explains how you had one and why they don't work. I'd bet the independent seller wasn't supposed to be 'selling' you one. It would seem that ...
The extra blocks you are seeing are just artifacts from the previous frame of the game. Caused by either the TV or camera used. I am sure of this because the UI for the next piece doesn't have enough room for 4 blocks. Looking through some game guides shows no mention of 4 blocks either.
Forgive my bluntness but Agent86 is not entirely correct. Both the SNES and NES actually do have hardware devices that can save and restore state with off the shelf cartridges. As an added bonus both offer true slow motion capabilities (not the pause button hack commonly implemented by some controllers). These are perfect for games like Mortal Kombat and ...
According to the original 32X manual, it seems like you can directly plug in Genesis games to the 32X and they will work, with the exception of Virtua Racing. On page 6: To play conventional Genesis 16-bit cartridge games, just insert the cartridge into the cartridge slot on the Genesis 32X. Before playing the 16-bit Virtua Racing game, remove the ...
Yes, they exist in the game. But not in the version of the game you own. The Jungle Book game is an interesting case of some weird things going on. The game was released for NES, SNES, Genesis/Mega Drive, DOS, Windows, Game Gear and Gameboy and while all versions follow the same story, not all versions are actually the same. In fact, the NES and "mobile" ...
Complementing Cory J's answer, after some research, I found that the cartridges really have different PCB sizes. According to this source (2nd answer), EA games PCB were slightly taller and harder to open: Madden 93 "guts":
I have actually run into this issue also, and I beat the game after like 3 years. You need to go as far as you can in the level, and then go backwards until you get to the last guard tower. There you will be able to jump upwards and climb up onto a ledge to get across and finish the level.
S-Video is long dead and buried so it's hard to find anything that supports it. As far as new equipment goes you're options are very limited. The only brand name device that can convert S-Video to HDMI you might be able to find new at retail is a 2013 Yamaha RX-A1030 (RX-V1075) AV receiver, but that's probably way outside your budget. I can say though that ...
The main difference is that the Mega Drive outputs PAL and the Genesis outputs NTSC video. The cartridges are physicaly compatible, but hardware modification is needed to actually run import games. The Japanese Mega Drive has different shaped cartridge slot so using those cartriges requires actually removing some plastic from the slot as well as a region ...
Not an actual answer, but a workaround. You can try using Xpadder to map your joystick to keyboard keys. Of course, that will only work if you can disable the in-game joystick support. Since I don't own Sega Mega Drive Classics, I don't know if that's possible, and probably I can't help you further than that.
Actually, the PowerPak -- basically a flash cart for the NES -- does have the ability to take savestates, with a certain set of mappers: http://kkfos.aspekt.fi/projects/nes/powerpak/save-state-mappers/ It is not currently possible for the other ones, that I know of, however.
I figured it out! It turns out I had to take the fairy to the sick dwarf in the dwarf cave, which was just to the East of the town I last saved in, just off the river. In return, the dwarfs gave me a cannon. Then I went to the town to the North (New Granseal?) and got some dynamite for the cannon. Now the next step is to go to the North Cliffs to blow up ...
Yes. Additional information : The 32x displays the video a bit better. The model 1 Sega Genesis consoles can be prone to "rainbow banding" and the video encoder in the 32X provides better image quality. This video explains it in detail.
It may be not the direct solution for your problem, but there is this company in japan with great products for video capture, one of them is the XCAPTURE-1 you can get almost any input, and send to almost any output (recording at the same time if you want to). It's the most recommended capture device on broadcasters community(that don't go inside a PC). ...
You would need some kind of capture card device in your PC which you would plug your console into. This used to be a really complicated thing but now there are awesome dedicated devices like this one http://www.roxio.com/enu/products/game-capture/default.html Unless your PC has some way to do video in with a capture device this will not be possible.
You can get the 6 Emeralds in the first 6 Acts you play, you have in total 10 chances to get them. The important thing is that you collect them before Scrap Brain Zone, because there's no access to Special Stage there. Here is an example video: Each zone before Scrap Brain Zone has one color of emerald. He gets the last ...
Once you've beaten Round 5, the game will loop back to Round 1... but on the next higher difficulty. This means that if you beat the game on Normal, you'll have to beat it again on Hard, and then AGAIN on Hardest. On the flip side, you only have to beat the game once if you're good enough to finish Hardest.
The simple answer to this is that I-Pac should allow you to utilize alt+F4, my understanding is that most people don't use ctrl, alt and shift keys as much as possible so that there are no conflicts with the OS but with iPac you can as stated on the website Shift functions. Holding "Start1" and pressing other buttons sends a range of codes for MAME ...
