Well, i saw in that page that older than 1996 machines should work with jp1 connected. My machine was a travesti.
It was NOT after 1996 but NOT before 1995, but it HAD round buttons and the 64pin ic. yeah! perhaps the shittiest saturn i could get my hands on!
anyway, i couldnt really know which way of the two to try, since my motherboard was different of both displayed there.
I soldered the Jp1 but it didnt work, and the funny thing is that my saturn went to sleep with the fishes after the removal of the wire. It just wanted me to enter the date again and again, and after i managed to do so correctly, it kept it. but when it starts, the picture it outputs has so much flicker, i think its 600hz and not 60
Probably something is burned down there. I repaired it to its normal state, but it doesnt work again. Maybe i have to try figuring out with the polymeter.
Now i got "rid" of my 64pin sat, i want to find a 32pin one, model 2, moded or not for sale. any offers or place to find one?
I remember doing something like this on a spare PAL saturn I had at the time, i remember doing the 50/60hz switch, but then all of a sudden the 60hz mode stopped working completely, as to why I don;t know.
Also - Apparently joining the two JP1 points on the very first type of saturn (Model 1 version 1 (version 2 was released a bit earlier in 95)) makes it run at 100 Hz - So If you have a tele that Runs at 100 Hz then you would have it running properly.
But it probobably still run at 50 Hz only now you can only play it on the 10 Hz T.V
So therfore - Wouldn't supplying an extra 5V of power to one of the JP posrts make it run at 60 Hz, instead of you having to lift up the No. 79 Pin?
