    maybe your games are not patched to match the region of your saturn.

    be sure to have unlinked A and B and 0014-0019 on the chip.

    another possible thing, is that if you use a cracked cdrwin it burns the cd, you see the files but they mean nothing, their content is fucked up?to be sure listen an audio track if it's noise only you're fixed.

    Can you explain to me what you mean by "unlinked a and b and 0014-0019"?About the games I've tried them out in diferent saturn systems and they work perfectly,although there the saturns with the round buttons.I'm using Alcohol 120% and nero for my copy's.

    thanks in advance!!

    on the back face of the chip you have on the top A and B be sure they are not linkned, on the right of the chip the 0014-0019 jumper, be sure those points are not linked.

    for the games they might work very well in other saturns, but are they the same region as yours?

    use saturn region patcher to change the region of your iso to match your saturn. a usa game can have the japanese region, it's simply a question of patch and therefore can't start on a us machine exept if you have a 4in1 action replay or something like that.

    what console do you have ?

    what copy-programm u use or u have hk-silver ?

    correct region ?

    in what results your backup-boots ended ? red blob/spheres or cubes at the cd-player menue ?

    sounds like a contact-problem from modboard to mainboard as in a earlier post from me:

    >I recommend: put the modchipboard into mainboard not cd-board. the modchipboard is maybe a little bit bend so some contacts have no contact in the mainboardslot, this was a error for me with 2 modchipboards resulting in strange red/yellow/green spheres or cubes combos at boot. I resoldered the flatcable-port at the modchipboard (that was the reason) to unbend the modchipboards and to get good contact within slot at mainboard.

    try to operate your saturn without lid so u can push the modboard a little bit during/between your bootexperiments so I figured out it was a contactproblem.

    Seal's solution wouldn't help as my problem is that I'm no good with soldering.

    How much is that 25 euro in USD, and would you be willing to give me a refund if I can't get the modded chip to work?

    it wouldn't be a good deal for me, but we can do the opposite why not sending me the chip and i send it back to you fixed for free if the chip is working of course.

    i keep the postal fees for me as they will only be 1 euro, f that can help you.

    just got my hacked chip from NHJ, it got a little smashed up in the mail, but I somehow managed to re-attach the one wire that came loose without damaging anything else. Installed it with no problems, works great.

    here's a tip for anyone who wants to install a chip without sodering in the power wire - strip the end of the wire and bend it into a loop, unplug the power connector and slip the loop over the 5v pin, when you plug the connector back in it will hold the wire in place for you

    i am happy you received the chip and everything is working on your side.

    i tried to do my best for the shipping, with such a form letter, it's not treated by customs and so no fees to pay.

    I am having problems wit hthis mod, I have started getting a red a and yellow sphere pop up in the CD player menu. I recieve the same error code if you will with only the cd rom plugged in with no mod board. Any suggestions?
  18. NHJ

    NHJ New Member

    well the usual suggestions, use a multimeter, check that the tracers are well cut, check all wires for continuity, also check if you didn't damage something around and if you soldered on the right points.

    Greetings chummers, I'm wondering if it's still possible to order a chip pre moded for a 20 pin model 1 saturn. I've got my credstick ready.
