Title: Megadrive 2 (EU) + Sega 32X (US) - black screen after Reading (Everdrive MD)
Post by: rsraleigh on August 20, 2014, 10:53 AM
Having a bit of a problem loading 32X games

I have a MD2 (PAL) and SEGA32X (US) with EVERDRIVE MD

Menu works ok, I select the game, starts erasing, then reading ... then black screen and nothing happens.

With MD games, it all works correctly

Tried with Star wars and Doom - different versions

Any thoughts?

Thanks!

Update .

After loading Doom and get black screen ... if I push reset, the game starts ... however once I have selected the level, the difficulty, etc ... the actual game does not show (the music keeps playing and the bottom screen with the energy, ammo etc, is there but not the actual labyrinth, etc)


Thoughts?

Star Wars still not working ...

Have you tried any real 32X carts?

The go-to fix for any 32X-related problem is always to re-seat the ribbon cables inside the 32X.

In Europe, we always hear that we need, even with the everdrive MD, to plug a 32X on a megadrive from the same region, like an european megadrive with an european 32X to play european 32X games.
This should explain your problems.
In fact, for the moment, because of this reason, I never try to play non PAL 32X games on my "combo".

yes, 32x and console regions should match
