    I've just been getting in to this "ftp" thing and grabbing myself a few saturn games what i would like to know before I burn them is will they work on my PAL saturn ???

    They are NTSC games and i've used satconv to change the region code but will they still play like my other PAL games ?

    Thanxs

    it will work, but the games will run 17% slower than they would on a ntsc saturn.

    It doesn't destroy the gaming experience, as you put it, if you have never experienced the difference. With some games it makes more of a difference than others, but you usually don't notice it. All PAL games have this 17% reduction due to the nature of PAL television signals.

    Some games will work only in 60 Hz though (Marvel SH vs Street Fighter, Yakyuken Special...)

    And some Euro games are PAL optimized and don't work properly on an NTSC Saturn.
