MSU-MD Error on PAL Megadrive
« on: July 22, 2021, 01:11 PM »
Hi Folks, Apologies if I have anything wrong and missed a step somewhere. I have a MegaEverdrive Pro (PAL Megadrive 2) and one issue. When I play an MSU-MD NTSC game such as Daimakaimura ~ Ghouls'n Ghosts (World) (Rev A) (MSU-MD) [Hack by ArcadeTV v1.0] I get the following message from MSU-MD Sound Driver – “This game requires an NTSC system and CD Hardware.”
Is there a known fix for this please?

Yes, a hardware mod. There are ones with a switch and switchless ones. Both are doable if you can solder. Both can be bought as a installation service too.

It wouldn't be that hard to fix if the source code was available, but since ArcadeTV delisted nearly all of his hacks from his GitHub then it becomes much harder to trace.

The cleanest solution might be to simply get an NTSC system as well. Either Japanese or NA depending on which you can get the cheapest. Japanese models are easier to make region free due to the wider cart slot and removable cart lock mechanism.

I installed a switchless mod and all now works perfectly. Thanks to you all for your help ;)
