    I know you guys probably know the answer to this, but being new to the Mega CD emu scene I just need some things sorting out.

    I am currently looking to buy a european Mega CD and would like to know what procedures I need to do to play copied games...if possible.

    As I have the US Snacher version downloaded and woould like to know if its possible.

    Thanx :)

    To play US games on a Euro MCD all you need is the tool SCDConv. It changes the country code of most games and works best with US->Euro conversions.

    And thats it :) No swapping, no modboards. Easy :).

    Cool...and thanx..

    So the MegaCD can read CDR's just like the DC can?

    Just don't burn the games too fast (like, less than 8x).

    yep, scdconv works with most games but not all, there is a mod available to let you select which bios you need, and therefore which region. Arakon sells them for $35, and i will get one eventually :)

    I have an European MegaCD and all NTSC games worked fine (with SCDCONV) except for Vay & F1 Circus.

    Thanx people.

    I have just won on Ebay a Mega CD 1 with Mega Drive, two pads and 12 games for £23.

    Can't wait for it.
