I bought a Jap 32x and was told it would be able to play any region 32X games, however it does not work with the US version of Knuckles Chaotix. All I get is the Sega license screen and then blank....
I have the Jap 32x plugged into a Jap Mega Drive 1. (I'm in Australia....but all our TV's are multi-system down here). And I want to play in NTSC!!!!
I then plugged a US 32x into the Jap Mega Drive 1, and Knuckles Chaotix worked!
I thought the Jap Mega Drive would reject the US 32x.
To make things even funnier.....I had this mixed up combo working with Knuckles Chaotix..... US 32x, Jap Mega Drive 1, Pal Mega-CD 1 !!!!!!!!!! I don't have any 32x CD games to test if this weird combo will play the cds.
The moment I unplugged the 32x, the region incompatibility screen for the mega drive and cd unit popped up!
If the 32x has no regioning then does Knuckles Chaotix check the region on the Mega Drive/Genesis?
