QuoteAnyway this thread probably won't serve much purpose to people but at least it shows Lawrence that his Laseractive info finally went to good use
QuoteSounds nice. Got any more details to the mod?EDIT: Found the mod. Could someone put it on THIS site as well?
Quotethe same exact 315 chip? does that mean we could get digital audio out of the genesis 2 then?
QuoteYou can't change the core design of a console once people start making games for it. I suppose you think the Genesis 3 lacks a 68000, Z80, RAM, and YM2612?

QuoteQuoteYou can't change the core design of a console once people start making games for it.

The Genesis 3 actually doesn't have a full Z80 integrated, which is why it can't play Sega CD and 32X games QuoteI played a LA on October 13, 2005 at 12:16:53 PM.More or your usual unnecessary rudeness. :rolleyes: -Segasonicfan
QuoteNo rudeness, just facts.
QuoteTake a Genesis and disable the Z80 and/or YM2612 and see what happens. It will be a funky adventure for you!
QuoteRob, my idea about the 32X and the clock lines worked? (based from your VR hack)Wow, and I don't even have a Genesis 3!
Quoteit's quite obvious the ASICs used in the MegaDrive Model 2 and LaserActive systems incorporate an accurate clone of the YM2612, Z80, and in some cases, 68000 ICs. If they did not, the same software would not function on them, as these three processors all have very specific instruction sets and will not operate with the same object code with even small changes.
QuoteThey only output composite video natively
