    I am able to test, too.

    I have a model 1 American NTSC MegaDrive with TMSS, no MegaCD nor Super 32X. No modifications were made to it. It is possible I may obtain a Model 2 MegaCD sometime soon, if I can get the money to get one. Maybe, a 32X in the distant future.

    As for peripherals, I only have 1 standard 3 button controller, nothing else, but in the future, I may get more peripherals.

    I also have an regular (not Mega) Everdrive v3, but sometime in the future, I may switch to the Mega Everdrive v2.

    I get the odd occasional PM like once every 6 months. Sometimes more frequent on IRC (whenever I log onto that). But that's about it.

    I got a Everdrive MD v3 a few months ago and it has been working flawlessly since day one. I have 2 Model 1 Sega Genesis Consoles that are both TMSS enabled, a VA0 32X, and I have both 6-button and 3-button controllers to use in testing.

    I don't know if I can say this, considering the circumstances it has been leaked, but I tested the Yoshi in Sonic 2 hack in my Mega Everdrive and it crashes past the title screen, both when trying to load the demo mode and the real game. Just for info, if xenowhirl is around here and can see it.

    I got a Mega Everdrive X7 recently, can test out any rom hacks etc if needed. Only one I've tried that didn't boot at all was The Radikal Ralakimus Hack Pack. Maybe that was too complicated for it?

    Nah, it was just poorly programmed. After all, it was made in only 2 weeks right before the contest :V

    I have a Mega Everdrive v2 and two Genesises (Genesii?). I have a Model 1 Genesis with a Power Base Converter and a Model 2 Genesis with a Model 2 Sega CD + 32X.
     
  8. I wanted to post here in case anyone wants something sound tested on a specific console. I have been collecting and examining sound and audio differences among the variant Model 1's and Model 2's, and have Everdrives. My hardware is listed in my signature.

    I now own a 32X, and my flash cart does support that, so if any of you need 32X testing, I'm here.

    I'll go ahead and repeat the other things I have:
    - Model 1 US Genesis w/ TMSS (Doesn't have "High Definition Graphics" on it)
    - Model 2 US Genesis
    - 3 button controller
    - 6 button controller
    - Everdrive MD v3 (Will be looking to upgrade to a Mega Everdrive X7 in the future)

    EDIT: 6 button controller crapped out on me >_>

    Also have an EPROM burner, eraser, and two reprogrammable ROM chips on the way for hacking just the "program" roms.

    Just wanted to mention here that i'm not able to progress in Robotniks revenge on hardware, it crashes when entering about 3-4 bosses in, cant remember exactly but happens every time.

    EDIT: I can test on combinations of Model 1, Mega Drive VA6, Genesis VA1, Mega Drive 2, Sega CD.

    would be happy to join in for some testing with my setup. I'm running a PAL Mega Drive model 1 VA4 that has been set to NTSC mode.
     
  17. I can. I have a model 1 genesis (hd graphics one, NTSC I believe) with a mega everdrive x7 on the newest firmware
