xabin Posted December 22, 2020 Share Posted December 22, 2020 Long story short, early Christmas visit was crap, but we got money for our own Christmas dinner, which my roommie used to get a Sega Genesis Mini. He knows I've been wanting one for a while, having grown up with the system, and he's been wanting to play it to see how playing on semi-original Sega hardware is like. We're thinking of possibly hacking it to add in some more choice games (though we dunno how many games we can fit on it without compromising stuff like save state space and whatnot), and I'm thinking - if I get some money but not enough to pay for a new gaming chair for my desk - using some of the money I get to get a pair of 6-button controllers. The only game we really tested on there was Sonic 2, its 2-player mode, and my god, dunno if it's the emulation being crap or the system, or the rom is just that bad, but the slowdown for it in certain spots was so unbearable. I honestly don't remember it being that bad for the game on actual original Sega Genesis hardware. So, that's 3 classic mini consoles down. Likely not going to get any others, since we've still got a modded slim PS2 we can use to play PS1 games (so no need for the PS1 Mini). I'm curious how you guys think of the system, and what advice you'd give us for modding it. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
