    I've got a US Model 1 (I think VA3 or 6? I was kind of scared of damaging it so I only got a look at the CPU) with an Everdrive X7.
    I've also got 2 US 3-button controllers. A European 3 button controller. And a third party 6-button controller.

    In terms of other consoles I could use for testing I also have a modded New 2DS XL and Wii U. I've got a PS3 Slim that I've been meaning to mod.

    I have an arsenal of consoles on me. Going from oldest to newest (they are all PAL/UK/European consoles):

    - Sega Mega Drive II (region bypass + triple bypass v2 mod) w/ Everdrive Plus and X5
    - PS2 Fat (need to look for the AV and get an HDMI cable)
    - Wii original model modded
    - Nintendo DSi modded
    - PS3 Slim (CECH-2003B) modded (via CFW)
    - Wii U modded
    - Nintendo 2DS modded
    - New Nintendo 3DS XL modded
    - Nintendo Switch OLED (most likely won't mod it and may consider selling it if Nintendo's next console is officially backwards compatible with Switch games)

    I'll be around if you want me to test anything out!

  8. Hello all. Besides my modded New Nintendo 3DS XL (and a non-modded Nintendo Switch), I have the following array of Java phones in no particular order. If modding J2ME Sonic games picks up, you know who to message here.

    - Nokia N86 8MP (my main J2ME gaming phone)
    - Nokia N82
    - Sony Ericsson Cedar
    - Samsung GT-C3050

    And several others but they have various issues, while these are the best working ones I have, but if these aren't sufficient then I can see what we can do.

    Might as well throw my own hardware in the running. I have a full North American Sega CD setup, Model 1 VA2 paired with a Funai Model 2. Former has had caps replaced and the headphone jack preamp defect corrected; the latter has an FRAM mod that eliminates the need for a BURAM battery. I also own a Model 1 VA6, and a Sony Model 2 with a broken disc drive. Yes, I use composite video out, partly due to cost, and because I don't mind the noise introduced into the video signal. Only other things I'd consider having done is having the sync trace bypassed with a bodge wire to eliminate the jailbars, and possibly a switched region mod.

    I have myself a VA3 model 1 Genesis, which already has a good preamp, but I heard that recapping of the filter caps can make the audio more cleared up. I also have the headphone jack connected to my model 2 Sega CD, with the stereo audio coming out of the Sega CD, into my mixer (for recording), and then out my studio monitors. I think it already sounds pretty darn good as is, but if a recap can help improve it further, then I should probably look into it.
