Important Message

COVID-19: Mod kits to UK addresses can be posted with a second class large letter stamp via a post box so there is no restrictions or delays for me to post these. Install services and international orders need to be taken to the post office and might be affected by movement restrictions in the UK and potentially have three weeks of delay from 23rd March 2020. I am really not sure. Thanks

Product Tabbed Info


With these mods the consoles will be able to play games in their correct aspect ratio and speed and bypass the region protection of imported games.

Sega Mega Drive

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.

The Mega Drive In-Game-Reset & Region Mode Change mod uses the controller combination START+A+B+C to reset the console or to cycle through the region modes.

The Mega Drive's reset button or STAR+A+B+C will cycle through the regions of the Mega Drive.

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

Sega Mega CD

The Sega Mega CD Region Free BIOS is a direct swap for the region locked BIOS chip inside a Sega Mega CD. It allows the Mega CD to dock with any region of Mega Drive and it bypasses the region protection of imported games. The Japanese Region Free BIOS is used because it has the widest game compatibility. Any other Region Free BIOS can be installed at your request.

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.
