    You best bet is to try the pc 32x emulators............

    I highly doubt it will ever happen.

    I don't think the DS is anywhere near powerful enough to play 32X games. There are PC emulators that will play it just fine though.

    I don't think it's possible. Gens has some speed issues with it on a 1ghz machine, so I doubt the DS' sub-100mhz could handle it. Same probably goes for Sega CD (even though it's much less resource-intensive than 32x).

    I like Knuckles Chaotix too. I like a couple of 32x games. Tempo (underrated platformer) and Kolibri (underrated shooter) I find fun.

    Possible, very slowly. Not worth the effort.

    DS lacks the power needed for smooth performance in this.

    School me; do Sega CD games use both the Sega CD and original Genesis/Mega Drive processors, or do they run using just the Sega CD's processor?

    Wasn't Neo Geo originally impossible? Of course that was purely a 2D console, where as 32X was 3D.

    I think the Sega CD uses both processors.

    I doubt all games use this extra speed. Stealth was able to port a single level from Sonic CD without music and only the present time period. A few features in Sonic CD use the extra speed and abilities of the SEGA CD. The special stages use rotating and scaling (like mode7). And obviously the video and music take advantage of the media hardware. But the music sounds nice in Genesis form:



    And this belongs in the DS Emulation section.

    Yeah, Sega CD adds things not present in the original system. CD audio support and rotation/scaling come to mind.

    It depends on how good a person is in coding

    I can't see any way around the DS's lack of horsepower for resolution scaling. jEnesis, for example, only has nearest neighbor vertical scaling, no horizontal scaling at all. You have to pan from side to side with L/R. I don't think this is just a matter of coding.
