    hi guys, i’m hoping for some help with getting Sega 32x up and running i’ve tried the BIO’s in lots of different folders, but still not getting any joy,

    i have been trying these BIOs:
    32X – Genesis BIOS.bin
    32X – Master BIOS.bin
    32X – Slave BIOS.bin

    &

    32X_G_BIOS.bin
    32X_M_BIOS.bin
    32X_S_BIOS.bin

    thanks in advance

    which emulator are you using, DGEN or Picodrive? DGEN doesn’t support 32X (the latest RetroPie image uses Picodrive as default)

    If you have found the solution to your problem please mark the topic as resolved.

    Hmmm, I don’t think you need a bios for Picodrive. I could be wrong but I didn’t need one (performance isn’t great by the way) Could it be the rom file?

    place the rom in home/pi/retropie/roms/megadrive

    reboot & it should show up in Emulation Station under Genesis page

    yup that worked! I never thought of adding them to the MegaDrive folder! I has been adding new rom folders and adding the extra es_systems.cfg info from here…

    Sega CD Running Slow?

    and yup quality is sadly poor!
    but, thanks for the help fella

    yeah you do need a bios for Sega CD, which runs a lot better. Roms go in the Megadrive folder again. Glad you got the 32X working, shame it’s unplayable even with overclocking 🙁
