Requesting a 32X Emulator for Wii.

Requesting a 32X Emulator for Wii.
September 11, 2009 11:01PM
I know that there isn't much support for one. And I know that it wasn't a popular platform.

But I'd like to ask that someone out there code one. Please oblige my request, I've always wanted to play its games and get as close to the original experience as possible (I have no money for both a Genesis and a 32X). If the Wii can't handle it, I'll understand, but if someone out there is willing, then can you do it? I don't have anything to compensate you with, though. :(

Unfortunately not. I already tried (Unless there's something I'm doing wrong).

There's two very similarly named emulators in which one does support the 32x along with sega cd i believe, and the other doesnt. Eke-ekes emulator port is of the one that doesnt have the additional systems support.

I think Picodrive is open source and supports 32X and CD, so one could potentially port it over to wii

Well I was thinking more along the lines of Gens32. Emulator Zone lists three emulators with Gens in the name. Gens Plus!, Gens (I believe this is Eke-ekes port), and the aformentioned Gens32. So it's fairly easy to get one or the other mixed up.

^^I was only referencing the confusion similar names can cause. You named your port Genesis plus! or w/e for wii. Then to add confusion people are looking at which pc emulator is your base port lol. Anyways it's all good.

Not to revive a dead forum topic BUT...

I know of a PC emulator able to play Sega Genesis, Game Gear, 32x AND SegaCD emulator called Kega Fusion. I am not suggesting people port Fusion to the Wii, plenty of forum topics already gotten into "This is not possible, compiled with a different coding language, blah blah blah"...

BUT if you can check out the source code for Kega Fusion, found the section(s) to play 32x roms, and devise/translate those sections to work in a new update of Genesis Plus, that would be awesome idea... If possible anyway. Seeing as though N64 and SegaCD games are workable on a Wii due to awesome programmers working so hard, I see no real reason why 32x games are impossible to code in. Challenging, yes/ Impossible, very doubtful. :)

No, it is actually really impossible because Kega Fusion is not open source, you guess that you are obviously not the first person with that idea.

And as said before on that topic, even if you had the sourcecode, it does not mean you can use it because it would be written in assembly language, which is not very readable or at least useless when it comes to copy infos from it to another platform.

When I say that all the needed infos are already availablr and that 32x emulation would still need to be added from scratch for the most part (like it was done with Mega CD emulation), you can trust me, there is no "miraculous" easier or more challenging solution...

That's said, Picodrive, which was recently added to Retroarch (Android version), has 32x support now, so it would be your best chance to play 32x games in a near future if someone build it for the Wii version. I am curious how fast this will run before I make any attempt to add it too in Genesis Plus GX, i don't have much hope for fullspeed however, Picodrive being specifically optimized for ARM platforms (Android, IOS), not PowerPC.
