    SEEMS like experimenting with that game was the last thing I did on it, but I wouldn't swear to it.
    I always go with OEM power supplies. It's too important to mess around with, even if the numbers match up. Do they really match up...ya know?

    Now I'm going to go against what I just said....and it has to do with the Genesis and 32X power supplies. There's a site that makes ultimate power supplies. Normally, I wouldn't care. Just stick with OEM, but, they also combine power supplies... No need to have a separate power supply for your Genesis, 32X and Sega CD. It's all combined into one kickass power supply. They're not cheap, but for me, eliminating power supplies was key. And in the process, I got hi-tech electronics, rather than 30 year old stuff. Here's the site, if you or anyone else is interested: http://www.retrogamecave.com/shop/4577155950

    I promise I will eventually, as its an awesome game. Right now, all my "Fancy pants" and video games (Except for my PS4 and Virtual Pinball machine) are packed away for my relocation move in January.

    I sold half my video games already. Wii, PS1/PS2/PS3 (But the retro stuff, and Everdrives I kept)

    Oh, and what they state on the website is true. I can run the Genesis / 32X for hours and the power supply gets slightly warm. When it's off, it's actually cool to the touch...So you can just keep it plugged in. The original power supplies really heat up when you're playing, and still stay pretty warm when plugged in. You always have to unplug them.

    Now that definitely seems like it could have been the culprit in my case, I have noticed it(Sega PSU) gets warmer than NES/SNES PSU's, plugged to the same power strip.

    Fortunately, whenever I get around to it, my PAL Pal has mentioned already that it won't be terribly expensive for me to replace, so no worries!
    :)

    That boxed/complete Mario Andretti Racing has been calling out to me tho-possibly the most "mint" thing I have in my collection, that I didn't buy new, the poster is wicked!
    :)
    So they say
    Dance for me, dance for me, dance for me, oh, oh, oh
