    And here I thought the update was going to be something big...

    Just kidding. This is amazing.

    Woo! Now I can wire up a link cable and play DooM with... nobody. Still, this is THE reason to have a 32X now. I played it with an Addams Family musical score CD, and it was a strange experience.
    - Where it's always 1995 (or so).

    This is quite something. I'm in the same boat as you Raijin Z. If we got a really really long wire we could play togther!

    Wow. I can't believe it's even better than the last version. This is similar to how Doom ran on a 486DX @ 33 MHz.

    Didn't realize the 32X is now doable as an FPGA core. Wonder if there will ever be enough demand for Analogue to produce a Neptune.

    Captured with my cellphone, so, lots of screen-tearing.

    I was musing the same thing on my drive home today.

    I’m picking up a 32X from a friend this week who’s selling it and this mod is the main reason I want one. I want to try out the Co-op and like most people would unlikely ever find anyone to play with sadly.
