    Neat stuff Todd. I like the addition of the save state feature. (As a parent this is the single greatest gaming quality of life improvement one could ask for)

    The shipping situation is ridiculous. Especially since it was pretty expensive in the first case. 18 euros for 'express shipping' and lots of people won't get them until a few weeks..

    All this talk of wanting to play 32X cd games. Tell me exactly what fucking 32X cd game is worth playing? No seriously, tell me.

    When this MegaSD was announced and they said it doesnt do 32X cd games, I had no idea 32X cd games existed.

    All 5 of them are just FMV games that were also released on the Sega CD.

    Mine has arrived..
    top build quality - works well. even takes multi region bios for the mega cd with no issues


    made and printed an insert for the universal case (just scanned the box art and modified a template in photoshop), as the original case is just cardboard and wouldn't last long under continued use without looking "dog eared"


    had to remove a couple of the tabs to get the cart to fit

    I love what you did for the case/art. Looks great!

    I've been toying with getting one of these since I just bought a Analogue Mega SG..... Tried to convince the wife to do it for Christmas, but I doubt that will happen.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I'm pretty sure that there's a version of Pitfall which uses both 32x and MegaCD which, of course, is not an FMV game.

    I think there were separate 32X and Mega CD versions but not a 32X CD version.
