32x for SNES
« on: 19/Aug/2012 08:02:18 PM »
Just bought a retrode, looking forward to getting it in the mail, but I had a question about the 32x adapter.

Can someone explain what the 32x is? There is a reference to it in the FAQ ("Actually, using the 32X adapters the Retrode has been found to read 32X carts, so woo-hoo there.") And it seems to have to do with adjusting the physical size of the cart, but I haven't found any other reference to (for example a picture of what it looks like) who makes it/where/if it can be purchased, etc.

"Q: Is it compatible with the Super Game Boy? The 32X? The Power Base Converter? The Master System Converter II? The MegaMaster? [...]
A: Until further notice, not in a useful way. What you might get is some ROM portion of the extension device itself, such as the Game Boy border of the SGB. For anything more, the chances are ridiculously low (the number also known as “zero”), really.
Update: Actually, using the 32X adapters the Retrode has been found to read 32X carts, so woo-hoo there."

So to clarify, the "update" just says that the 32x will work, whereas the Super Game Boy continues to not work?

In that case, I guess I'll just wait patiently for the gameboy adapter/attempt to build my own...

The Super Game Boy does not pass the ROM data through to the console, so - no luck.

Last time I checked, there was only one emulator that supports Super Game Boy.

Some times modern video game characters chase older ones. Some times older video game characters just say the wrong thing.
