Sega Mega Drive Switchless Region Mod Kit

Price:  £8.00

Sega Mega Drive 1 & 2 Switchless Region Mod Kit

The kit comes with;

  • 1 x Modchip (Switchless Region)
  • 1 x Vishay 0.1uf-50v X7R Ceramic Capacitor
  • 1 x Kingbright 'Red (Yellow) Green' LED
  • 2 x Vishay Metal Film Resistors

The Mega Drive Switchless Region Mod, when correctly installed, 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.

With the mod the console will be able to play games in their correct aspect ratio and speed and bypass the 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 = Yellow LED – North America/NTSC – 60Hz/English
  • Setting 3 = Red LED – Japan/NTSC – 60Hz/Japanese

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.

**This switchless modchip will work with both active high and active low reset Sega Mega Drive consoles.
