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..

You have to pay to play.

Got mail from Terraonion today..... Doesn't sound good

"Due to the sheer number of shipments being sent out, this process could take up to 3 weeks to complete"

Was this really a good move? Why does someone move his business to a location with such a small post office.... Don't care for taxes but shipping that could take weeks why?

Hopefully it's faster

... Andorra is a bit near to Germany than Spain and shipping could possibly take longer than from every other point in the world

Do you have some kind of gaming emergency?

Because if they hadn't moved out of Spain this would cost $400-500 instead.

That not the point, I just don't like it when something is lying around for a long time in a unknown post warehouse

If you are OK with waiting a few weeks even when you don't expect it good for you

Especially when last orders went really fast, anyway I know you don't care

The email is just an FYI. Supposedly customs will start clearing more packages tomorrow so hopefully any wait is less.

This seems super cool and Im pretty tempted to pick one up. I'm already planning to get a Mega SG so this would be a nice addition. Just wondering though, there are rumors that the jailbreak firmware for the Mega SG that already allows SD card rom loading will be given 32x support. If that is done, is the advantage of this that it does CD games too?

I am going to put an aside here... following my last post...

I APPRECIATE... that The Terraonion Team... including our Yodd would prefer this to be a factual... less confrontational type deal...

However, I would point out that with certain advantages gained... you will get certain disadvantages...

Terraonion gets the powerhouse earning income of this sites members... and Ng.com gets footfall...

HOWEVER... being on this site isn't some homogeneous human cloning experiment... you will definitely get some input from weird members... including an older and very jaded Azn...

Yes, but I'd say that's a huge advantage. The Sega CD has lots of great games. And not having to deal with dying drives, caps that need replacing, the bulk, and worst of all the extra power supply? The MegaSD is worth its weight in gold if you ask me.

Also cart games can get CD soundtracks from what I understand, but I've not looked into that at all yet.

I totally agree, great device. Even an SVP core for Virtua Racing is available with the next firmware. Just waiting for the MSDEXP to play 32X CD games.

Regarding the power supply. I'll keep my tower of power and bought this 3-in-1 power supply.

Also cart games can get CD soundtracks from what I understand, but I've not looked into that at all yet.

For instance, the Pier Solar music is available as CD image. Just put the cart ROM and the CD images into the same directory.

Pier Solar is supported on the MegaSD (too big for Everdrives). I have the original 2nd run cart, but it crashed after playing it for many hours (and crashes again after save loading). So I will give another try with the Rev. C ROM.

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.

Yea seriously. People complaining about no 32x support are really reaching.

It's the new collection world. Fucking crying about any and everything. You know, there's not like 5,000+ games to play, gotta have that fucking slam city starring Scottie pippin 32x game.

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