    "Crack the SEGA Saturn copy protection" contest

    I'm sorry but I disagree - the VCD card mainly served to play VCD's, and NOT as an addon for games. The thing is, the CD block won't let you read beyond the first 32k of the disc, normally, if there is no security check done (which fails if there is no security ring). BUT, the VCD card can...

    "Crack the SEGA Saturn copy protection" contest

    Now we're on the subject (to some extent), I wonder how the VCD card can get the Saturn to read data from discs without security ring :looney

    Hacked a 21pin mod to 20 pin saturn

    :banana Now that would be nice, especially with the imminent decline of CD lasers. Best of luck! If you succeed I'll send you some money to get drunk :D

    10 Years of the Saturn

    Wow, the Saturn. I remember reading about it in may 1995, in my brother's first (and only) games magazine. By then it wasn't released in Europe yet, and all I had was a NES. Due to the quite sketchy information (I was 10 by then, in fact the system was released in Japan 1 day after my birthday...

    50Hz/60Hz switch on model 1 PAL Saturn: how?

    I have one of those early model 1 Saturns (with the separate power board). After some searching I found the location marked JP1 (on the bottom side, near the cartridge connector if I remember correctly) and bridged it with a bit of solder from a way too inaccurate soldering gun with a 3mm head...

    Hyper Street Fighter II

    And me loves it :cool: If it gets released for a budget price like over here in Holland (30e) I can really recommend it, a nice piece of history and one of the few 2D games on PS2. :cheers

    Saturn GameShark v 1.7 Help

    if it has a LPT-style port on it, you can hook it up to a comms-card (separate ISA card you put in your PC, it DOES NOT work with a standard parallel port) and reflash it. But you might also try ExCyber's reflash disc, with the swap trick.

    Mortal Kombat Trilogy........

    hey, its not totally unlikely as the Saturn Sophia devkit can map the RAM into the cartridge area (it can have up to 32mb RAM I think).
