Is there any way to play a 32x on a 16-bit Sega Genesis? I recently went to a Disk Replay store and saw Doom for $3.55, but the clerk was kind enough to inform me I had to have some sort of thing that would connect into my Sega that would allow this. It sounded cryptic at the time and I possibly am misremembering what he said, so I came to you guys wondering what kind of hardware he might have meant.
I'm not a lazy ass kid so I did my own research into it and did indeed find that there are more kinds of Sega Genesi than just the 16-bit one, but I wasn't able to find any kind of hardware that would connect into my Genesis that would allow a 32x cartridge to plug in on top of it (like a Game Genie). Does such a hardware piece exist or did the clerk mean I had to have a 32-bit Sega Genesis with a 32x compatible piece? Whenever I search "Sega 32x adapter" I am getting nothing... if there is a more specific name I'm sure that would help. And yes I know Doom was for the N64 as well, but I can't find a decently priced copy anywhere...
Final question, if such a hardware component DID exist... how would a Game Genie work in that? The hardware piece, Game Genie, then 32x game on top, or Game Genie, hardware piece, then 32x game on top?
