Product Tabbed Info

Description

The Mega Drive Switchless Region Mod lets you set the region of the console to Europe, North America or Japan, essentially between PAL and NTSC regions. This is done by changing the Video Refresh Rate to 50Hz or 60Hz and the Language to English or Japanese.

When the mod is correctly installed, the console will run games in their correct aspect ratio and speed and bypass any region protection of imported games.

The reset button is used to cycle through the regions.

  • Setting 1 = Green LED – Europe/PAL – 50Hz/English
  • Setting 2 = Red LED – North America/NTSC – 60Hz/English
  • Setting 3 = Yellow LED – Japan/NTSC – 60Hz/Japanese

The Mega Drive In-Game-Reset mod allows the console to be reset or the console region to be changed from the controller.

Holding A+B+C+START for 1.5 seconds will reset the console. Holding this combination longer will cycle through the regions.

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.

*Note that this mod will require using the console's native RGB output via an RGB Scart cable. 60Hz regions will be black and white via composite output. RGB is recommended over all other video outputs because of its superior video quality.
