So, you own one of the coolest Sega consoles released in the 16-bit era but you want it to be even cooler? With our switchless region free mod you can make your console region free without damaging the case or spoiling the aesthetics of your classic machine. This is a complex mod and unfortunately that has to be reflected in the price.
The switchless region free mod allows you to set region and choose between 50hz and 60hz modes all by pressing the reset switch. To operate the mod, simply hold the reset switch down for the required time.
Less than 0.5 seconds – Resets the console as normal.
0.5 seconds to 1.5 seconds (until power LED is extinguished) – Change between 50hz and 60hz modes.
More than 1.5 seconds – Change region.
The LED will flash and change colour indicating the region. Simply let go once the correct region is selected (actual LED colours may vary).
We use the 100% compatible multi-BIOS mod that allows all games from all regions to load. Just select the region with the reset switch and the correct region BIOS is selected for the MegaCD.
Note:- We strongly recommend playing your console using an RGB cable. On some televisions, import games may appear in black and white when using composite or S-Video connections.
For full region free compatibility, the cartridge slot on European and American consoles must be widened. Alternatively, an import adapter such as a Honey Bee adapter can be used. Generally we’d recommend against case mods on such rare hardware, but feel free to contact us if you want to discuss this.
Due to minuscule differences in video timings between PAL and NTSC consoles, users connecting modified PAL consoles to HDTVs (either directly or via an upscaler such as an XRGB) may experience stuttering/juddering during scrolling in games when playing in 60hz. This is not a fault with our modding process (we’re just the only website honest enough to tell you it could happen). This does not affect CRT users, see this page for more information.
