The SNES Super CIC++ mod is the best way to modify your SNES or Super Famicom console to play all region games. You can change the consoles region by holding the reset button or by using a button combination on the SNES controller. You can also switch between 50Hz, 60Hz, or auto-detect mode, allowing you to play compatible PAL software at 60hz, or at the speed originally intended. This mod has 100% compatibility with import games, even those with more sophisticated lock-out technologies. If you’re sending in a US SNES we can also remove the internal plastic lugs that prevent PAL and Japanese cartridges from inserting (playing American games on European or Japanese consoles will also require an adapter or for the cartridge slot to be physically widened).
Unlike our competitors we use only the very latest, high quality SuperCIC boards in both our 1 chip and multi-chip installations. Our new SuperCIC++ boards are the most sophisticated yet and have two key advantages over the basic SuperCIC mod you might get elsewhere:-
- Built in De-jitter – The SNES’ off spec sync signal can cause issues with certain TVs and upscalers, most commonly the OSSC. The SuperCIC++ includes a built in De-jitter mod, which will fix this problem and ensure maximum compatibility across modern televisions and upscalers.
- Built in dual frequency oscillators – No more generating NTSC timings using PAL timing crystals! Simply hacking a PAL SNES to run at 60hz does not magically give you a true NTSC SNES/Super Famicom. This is due to the differences in the oscillators or timing crystals in PAL and NTSC machines. Users of our old SuperCIC boards who were connecting modified PAL consoles to HDTVs (either directly or via an upscaler such as an OSSC) may have experienced stuttering/juddering during scrolling in games when playing in 60hz. This problem is now completely eliminated with the SuperCIC++, which includes a dual frequency oscillator so that the video timings are always 100% compliant with original, region accurate hardware.
There is no better or more reliable SuperCIC mod than this on the market. Enjoy a true, region free SNES console!
We can fit this upgrade to all classic SNES consoles. It is fully compatible with 1 chip systems and the Super Famicom Junior/New-Style Super NES (it is not compatible with SuperNT or Nintendo Classic Mini).
