Could you self-contain the 32X and not have to use the wire at the back?

    Basically I'm wondering if you could make it so everything would go through the cartridge slot and you wouldn't have to use the cable at the back. Or would it be impossible to feed the "cable information" through the cartridge slot/pins?

    The Sega Neptune is probably the closest you'll get. There's a reason the video out had to be fed to the console. If there had been a better way to do it, why would Sega have done it this way?
    Feeding the information through the cartridge slot would've only been possible if the console had been designed to support that from the start.

    Good luck finding a Neptune for sale.

    You can make your own--he doesn't really need any luck, just a few bucks and some technical ability:

    So no way of getting it to work on the RetroGen then?

    I would love to know how exactly to dismantle and combine a Genesis and 32X together; ideally with a way to "turn off" the 32X portion in the event I happen to do this on a Model 1 and get fortunate enough to score a Power Base Converter to go with it.

    In all seriousness, I'm considering trying to find a class or basically an electronics course that teaches how to solder and de-solder just to do something like that.
