    Did a search but since I searched 32x, nothing came up [​IMG]

    Just wondering if anybody knows any word of a 32x emulator, or since I'm not that geeky, I'm not sure if it's really a complicated task or not (To make one.) Or maybe a future update for Genesis Plus GX will support Sega32x? Sega CD would be dope as well, but 32x has Knuckles' Chaotix, which I love.

    Haha, just wondering! [​IMG]

    Unless it's ported, then no.
    The Wii is powerful enough, as the PSP can run it.

    First off I would prefer Sega/Mega CD support in Genplus first then 32X will be the next logical step!

    I agree with you!But the next logical step is to persuade Eke-eke... [​IMG]

    Too bad that eke-eke is still got the old (December 2008) genplus GX with ugly GUI on his source page! I'm sure he must be running an awesome Genplus with Mega CD/Sega CD support on his Wii..lol!

    Yeah,this is a mystery to everyone....
    But,I think he clarified several times that he does not intend to implement Sega CD support on his current emu.If I remember correctly,he said that Sega-CD support requires a tremendous amount of work (basically re-write some codes from scratch for the Wii) and he has a life....But that was 2 years ago ,so hopefully he might change his mind or has more free time this period of his life.

    there is no mystery, this is homebrew after all, people coding for free on their own free time so you get what you paid for.
    And i don't think it's about "persuading people" but more about waiting for ones which have the ability to code emulators AND time to do it. If you can't wait, there is not much you can do beside learning & do it yourself ... or play with emulators on your computer. Harassing devs with the same requests again & again is NEVER going to work.


    PS:
    about 32x, there is no 32x emulator available which could be ported to the Wii, the only one is Gens and it is written in computer assembly (because it's more optimized this way) so indeed this would need to be written from scratch I guess, which make 32x emulation on Wii even less optimistic, considering it would need to be written in Wii assembly or use similar technique as the ones used by Wii64 team to run at playable speed.

    Sega CD seems possible though, I actually tried to look into Picodrive code (which is the only sega CD emulator that is written in C and is portable) but it requires indeed a lot of work to get it working with current genplus code, at least I think because I can read and understand code but you also need someone who knows both emulators pretty well and knows how the Sega CD and Genesis internally worked (no, it's not as easy as copying code from one to another as a "plugin" like this other guy said he did), which is far out of my league [​IMG]

    Sega 32x/sega cd emulation just can't be added easily to Genesis Plus.... the pc version doesn't support those so there's no hope.

    It's not like the real machine guys..... not plug and play [​IMG]

    Eke-eke need to either start from scratch or port a pc emulator to the wii.

    Anyway I'm just repeating myself for the 10th time already.

    Which sucks. Hard. 'cause all I want to play is Knuckles' Chaotix and Sonic CD, I got the Genesis emulator and realized the only game I ever play is Sonic Spinball.

    (Can you tell I like sonic? hmm.)

    I played Knuckles' Chaotix once and I found it rather boring.... there's a Sonic 4 demo on sega genesis that is basically the same game.

    I guess if VC was more popular.... nintendo and sega would release 32x game on virtual console.

    Actually 32x Emulation is wishful thinking. Sega CD Emu is possible.

    How?
    Do you have any ideas?
    Or do you have a Sega CD emu in the works as your personal project?

    WolfChild and Sol Deace would be godly to play on the wii with epic CD soundtracks. OH and the sequel to Eternal Champions! (I own the actual game)

    It would be sweet to have Sega CD emulation. I want to play Sonic CD again.
