The Super Nintendo SuperCIC Switchless Region Mod is a multi-region replacement for the CIC Lockout chip found inside the Super Nintendo console. It lets you run games in their correct 50 or 60 hertz aspect ratio and speed and bypass any region protection of imported games.
The reset button is used to cycle through three settings:
- Setting 1 = 50Hz (Green LED)
- Setting 2 = 60Hz (Red LED)
- Setting 3 = Auto Mode (Yellow LED)
If you are running your PAL systems in 50Hz, you are really doing the games a great disservice. I consider these switchless mods necessary for PAL consoles.
In-Game-Reset – uIGR(v2)
The uIGR (v2) mod lets you change the SuperCIC region and reset the console using controller button combinations.
The region patch circuit will prevent any out of region notices when trying to load out of region games. Usually the correct region on a multi-region console will need selecting beforehand.
