No dice on the Multi Mega with a 32x, I dont think so anyway. They also wont work with a MD III or the third party MD consoles either.

I've seen the 32x's go for silly money on eBay these and games are something else! Chaotix for 100 quid? Sure thing!

Apparently so. They were quite cheap not so long ago (around £20-£30 iirc) but like I said, you often have missing leads so a new PSU is sometimes necessary (same as the MD2 version) as well as other leads so you can sometimes spend even more money after buying a loose unit.

As long as the multimega has the same AV in/out sockets on the back then I don't see why not. I sold my 32X to TwoHeadedBoy and I'm sure he uses it with a Multimega.
Retro is a state of mind, and cares not for your puny concepts like dates and calendars.

I got a lovely condition boxed one from Gamestation coventry a few years back. No amount of persuading could get it working. So annoyed as it was mint looking and complete.

As for PB converters , you need to take them off to play MD games. I seem to have mislaid mine and dont want to pay the silly price for an MD2 ms converter.

Got the Asian and Japanese mega drives but not bought any games for a while. Happy with my collection though.

Yep, it works just fine :D

And Chaotix is abysmally disappointing (good thing I'm only playing it through the EverDrive).

I don't care its a bad game or not, I just want Sega to rerelease the darn game on XBLA so I can actually play it without throwing silly money for the cart. To me, it's a missing link in the Sonic MD games which to this day I've never played. I remember wanting a 32X for Xmas just for that game, but never got it. :/

I mean hey, if they can put something as shallow as Sonic the Fighters on XBLA, they can put Knuckles Chaotix up there easy...

Just play the rom for 10 minutes, then become as disappointed as everyone else who has played it.

can anyone recommend a good mega cd and 32x emulator for the PSP? Also, where can I find the roms? I have a nice megacd/32x collection but its not set up permanently and its always such a pain setting it all up every time that I often just don't bother.
