    I applaud you for sharing information such as this. I think I'll try my hand at making one eventually.

    Well done! It's really nice to see somebody take the time and share their knowledge and skills to help folks who want to mod. Now another to do project to add to my list. For me, video games are a hobby.

    Thanks for the guide! Your using the stock Genesis adapter to power everything now correct? I was hunting for an aftermarket power supply for my Neptune.

    Yes It is using the stock power supply. It says it in the first couple paragraphs I think.

    Great job!

    Two questions:
    1) How does cartridge insertion feel? Does it feel any different than inserting a cart into a regular genesis/32x?
    2) Does anyone know of someone that will perform this work and sell the final product?

    edit: heh - now you need to squeeze a 32x into a cdx

    1. Feel just like inserting a regular Genesis and 32X game.

    2. I perform the mod http://www.longhornengineer.com/Forsale/Forsale
