Well this is the &quot;THIRD&quot; (COUNT IT&lt; THIRD&gt;) Genesis that I've DESTROYED up trying to do this dumb project!!!!! The first the colors went out, the second, the processor fried, and this third one, won't switch out of PAL mode, the mhz switch won't respond, and to top it all off, I've LOST ALL MY SOUND!!!!!! <br> So is there ANYONE in the SOUTHERN CALIFORNIA AREA that I can get to come over to my place and DO THIS FOR ME CORRECTLY as I'm just too dang stupid to figure it out!!! :(:(:(:( <br> Charles
sillyzombie666 is right. Which kind of switch? @ pole or 3 pole and what voltage range do we need? The good Lord knows a lot of people show at Radio Shack and they don't have a clue....it is a &quot;must&quot; to have these questioned answered in this tutorial. Thanks man and good job on this write-up!
Did you just freaking reference True Lies, or am I reading into that? If so, you are a awesome human person.
Even though I wasn't doing this totally, I read through it and it's a very great idea! Did you figure out this yourself?<br />
I'm not going to do a region mod, but thanks for this step XD<br /> <br /> I bought a model one and when I got it yesterday, the volume switch was disconnected from the &quot;stick&quot; itself. I just wanted to be sure how to open it up, just in case. Thanks a lot =D<br />
you should point out that this can't just be any old switch<br />
&nbsp;will PAL games work with this mod? i don't have any to test, but i also don't want to buy any if they wont.....
Sadly, no, but PAL &amp;&nbsp;NTSC&nbsp;titles are usually the same.<br />
&nbsp;Works great!<br /> Thanks! :)
nice work<br /> waiting for model 2...<br />
