Two boards left at BetaGamma for anyone who needs a fitting service (click here), otherwise sold out. No ETA on re-stock due to global parts shortage.
The SNES Super CIC++ mod represents the ultimate evolution of the popular SuperCIC region free mod for your classic Super Nintendo/Super Famicom console. SuperCIC++ 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.
The SuperCIC++ board has a number of advantages over the older, SuperCIC boards, namely:-
- One version fits all – One board can be fitted to any Super Nintendo or Super Famicom console, one chip or multi-chip.
- 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.
All kits purchased from us come with a fully assembled and programmed SuperCIC++ board and a colour changing power/status LED.
Please note – This is a complex mod and requires some familiarity with the internals of the SNES console. PLEASE only order if you are confident that you can fit the part. We’ve now added a small FAQ to help with common installation problems, but unfortunately we cannot provide technical support with DIY installations, nor can we offer refunds for parts damaged due to misuse or incorrect installation.
