Mega ST2's For Gaming!


Recommended Posts

Hi all!

So a buddy and I picked up two Megs ST2's. They both came with a 16mhz accelerator + switch. No Keyboards.

We both have an Eiffel 3 coming.

So I did some testing with games that would auto boot, with the switch on for 16mhz, and off for 8mhz, respectivley.

HOLY TOLEDO! Buggy Boy runs like its a Genesis game and the Time Bandit demo runs WAAAY to fast. 🙂

So at this point I'm thinking any game that is either 3D or that has many sprites on the screen will benefit.

When the Eiffel3 comes in I will do some more comparisons and post them here. I think I'll start with painfully slow shooters.. maybe Star Wars and R*Type2..
