You will need to make your motherboard region free by removing the plastic tabs in the connectors. Taito used custom versions of those connectors which can't be sourced.What's the multicart pinout? Japan or Europe?
I like to keep my stuff as original as possible, so I'd like to know whether if I should get a Japanese or European motherboard.
ow, I seeYou will need to make your motherboard region free by removing the plastic tabs in the connectors. Taito used custom versions of those connectors which can't be sourced.
Just the plastic.I was going to try to remove the pins but I see that jassin000 has removed pins and plastics. Do I have to remove both pins and plastics or only the plastics?
My understanding was that only the plastic has to be removed but evidently I'm wrong
Thanks in advance
Wow, really? That would be far more easier than dremeling the plastic and keeping the pins intact.Technically you only need to remove the plastic, but it's faster and easier to just clip the entire pin like Jassin did. The pins aren't used for anything.
yeah did alot myself this waypins are not used at all.. that's why carts from diferent regions are able to work in every motherboard...
but seriously.. you don't need to destroy the pins.. just don't use a tungsten-bit-destroyer-of-the-world, be patient and you won't break anything.. you don't need to be 100% precise.. nothing will happen if the bit bumps against the pins. As long as you don't have gorilla hands, and you use a ball bit smaller than the pin distance, everything will be ok.
Trust me.. been there, done that...
cheers Franco, you're a star!Feel free to send it my way bud, I'll do it at the same time as mine.Regarding the reset wire, is anyone in the U.K. willing to solder it for me? I have zero soldering skills, but I would prefer my monitor not to keep going in and out of sync... :/
