    32X My 32x doesn't like the 32x version of NBA Jam

    My 32x version of NBA Jam doesn't work on my 32x. It's never worked. The game just does this little click and then nothing. I bought it like 4 years ago for like $5 and thought that it was just dirty. All my other 32x games worked too so i was certain it was something with that cart.

    Recently I bought a mega everdrive and I thought I'd try NBA jam 32x and see what I'm missing. I fired up the rom and it doesn't work. There rom acts just like my cart.

    I'm thinking now there is something wrong with my 32x. Just strange that there's only one game that doesn't work.

    Have you y'all seen this? Bad capacitors?

    Thanks

    Whoops might have posted in wrong section? Feel free to move this elsewhere.

    The eeprom save memory may be broken on your copy of NBA Jam T.E. for the 32X. Also, since it's not working on your Mega EverDrive it's because you're using the eeprom save memory version, you have to get a hack that changes it to SRAM saving. I have it, let me know through a PM if you want it.

    It's not bad capacitors. As I said, there's probably something wrong with the EEPROM chip for saving in your copy of NBA JAM T.E., it may have reached the end of its life cycle. And again, the eeprom save memory version doesn't work on the Mega EverDrive neither, you need to get the SRAM hack for it.

    I realize this post is a few months out of date but nobody answered you. With an Everdrive version of NBA Jam, Knuckles Chaotix and one of the Football games, you have to modify the ROM file slightly. Anybody can do it and you can get instructions from this thread: https://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=3086.0

    Do you have a version of NBA JAM 32X that actually SAVES in SRAM? I just know the one that DISABLES EEPROM, and saves nothing.

    Whoops, forgot I posted this. Anyway, I'll try the hacked version and see if it works. That would make sense now that you guys pointed out what it could be


    Thanks for

    This is something I haven't thought about in years but back in the mid-2000s I purchased a new old stock (NOS) copy of NBA Jam TE for the 32X from an eBay wholesaler. The first copy was DOA as was a second they sent me. No idea why they didn't work. I later found a used copy and it worked without problems. I wonder if there was just a bad batch out there.

    Had similar issue with brand new 32x mars in late 1990s. Inserted 32X Nba Jam TE, powered unit and heard audible click-pop, and game froze when match started (either demo or single player). Sometimes sprites didn't show at all until it freezed at a later time. Would sometimes freeze immediately after showing Iguana logo (sometimes logo wouldn't wipe screen with white). Smacking unit would cause it to randomly work but would sometimes freeze during gameplay. Deceiving problem since it only happened on this game but not other 32X games. Guessing this one in particular uses hardware in a way that necessitates a proper functioning unit while most others bypass certain functions...?

    Disassembled 32x unit, re-seated both ribbon cables and problem solved. Really silly fix (it's as if there was no problem). Seemed to have been a termination issue due to extremely small contacts of ribbon cables. Had very similar issues with trackpoints intermittently working on laptops I've had which also used ribbon cables for keyboard-trackpoint and required the same process to fix; these were also brand new. Almost certainly positive it's the ribbon cables on most of these units.

    Your 32x sucks its own dick.

    I never got Knuckles Chaotix to work on mine. Turns out the game just hates some models of Genesis. So the above post is right. 32X sucks itself off and just sucks in general. Pile of shit tumor.



    Life!? ... What console is that on?
