    Crap! That is the best thing ever!

    a few questions:
    1) does it still require 2 AC adapters?
    2) does it function with a sega cd for 32xCD games?
    3) how much did this project cost?

    Great mod btw!

    That reeks of pure awesomeness. I give it 4 baby dolphins out of 5. It would have been a perfect 5/5 if it were in a hand-made Neptune case. But seriously though, how much and where??

    Wow, that's cool.

    But in the end, it's still just a 32X, isn't it?

    That...is amazing.

    No seriously.

    Now get a PStwo to fit perfectly in a PSX case and we'll talk.

    Very cool.

    And if Longhorn engineer can make money on the shop time required to perform this, I'm doubly impressed.

    Definitely a very cool mod and idea in general. What comes of this commercially will be interesting to watch for.

    I'm actually working on one of these too myself...

    http://www.sega-16.com/forum/showthread.php?t=3596

    Mine will use IDE ribbons to connect the cart lines..

    the difference on mine however is that I'll be using a single power supply, not two.. I also am thinking of adding Composite out directly from the console, and Component video (via the JROK adapter). It would be a perfect combo, without any special cables..

    lol, yours made me laugh:

    Completed: 1%
    Timeline
    1. Need to pick up Genesis, and receive 32X.
    2. Picked up Genesis. Still no 32X though.
    I'm sure it'll be great once more work is put into it, your signature on sega-16 just made me laugh

    The one who was supposed to send me a 32X was having postage problems. The sig isn't updated though.

    What IS done though is on the Genesis side:
    1. Cartridge port removed
    2. AV ports RGB, CSync, Composite traces cut and lifted
    3. DC line from DC jack ready to go to 32X (for single power adapter)

    I've been wanting to something like this for a long time. I wish I had the skills to make the actual plastic case like the prototype. Are there any dimensions on the web for the prototype Neptune?

    I can approximate this via the cartridge slot size.

    Brb with a mockup...

    EDIT:



    I used the cart slot as the "base size", remembering that the neptune picture was originally angled a little bit, and the cart slot appears thinner than it really is as a bezel is hiding a small portion of it..

    So from the looks of it, The Neptune is a just a bit larger. The website says he can make custom cases if you pay him. If I get one of these working, I'm gonna e-mail him to request a neptune case be made.

    So far, I removed the the genesis' cartridge slot, soldered wires to it, and I'm gonna take apart my 32x later today.

    aweosme.. im thinking of taking on this project as well. It shouldn't be that hard. Are you going to also keep the double power supply or figure up one that will power both?

    I'm planning on using 1 power supply for them. I'm currently gonna use 2 just for testing but next week I will get a single one. I've got some pics of what I've done so far:

    you probably want to move that heatsink and voltage regulator, if you want the 32x cart slot to line up with cart slot on the case.
