Can't play Ntsc roms on my pal system with everdrive.
« on: February 15, 2016, 05:01 PM »
When i try to load a rom from America or Japan on my pal snes it says, can't play this game pak on your super nintendo..... Is this common. I thought all roms would play as on my Nes everdrive. Any help would be appriciated.


Hmm, no answers. I'll guess i will have to fint this one out for myself.

Hi, I play any old ROMS and there is never a problem, certainly never had that message.
Just checked and one gaming forum says....

"Region free, 100% compatibility and handles the 50/60Hz switching for you.
Easily the best mod for playing imports."

Yep, you need a lockout chip mod+50/60Hz mod. Then you can play most of the imports on a PAL system via Super Everdrive.

Use the program "uCON64" to "fix" the games to be region free.

Hi here
The lockout itself is a pretty simple mod, if you ever did some soldering/mod works
http://www.gamesx.com/importmod/sneslockout.htm
for a good start.
It's basically just cutting a pin. That's what i did for my first mods.

Though there are way better mods, top of the notch would be this one :

But a little more tricky to install.

As far as the 60Hz thing goes, the mod is trickier than say the one for Mega Drive, but you can pick up a Super Famicom very cheap on ebay from Japan. I got one for about £25 shipped recently, no yellowing. Can use your current pads, leads and a Mega Drive 1 power supply. (You don't really wanna play the import games without 60Hz, will run too slowly and have a squished picture.)

(Edit: got mine from this guy, he has tons http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Nintendo-Super-Famicom-System-Console-NTSC-J-Japan-JP-GAME-ITEM-A-/152012937841 )
