! Saturn ModChip Problems !


I'm a Newbie here, so no p*** taking. I've recently received a Saturn modchip from lik-sang and have just had my first (unsuccessful) attempt at fitting it.

First problem I encountered is that lik-sang's installation instructions point to the timing wire going to the 4th pin from the right (pin 13 on 32 pin chip) whilst other sites, such as the Saturn Rings site, point to the timing wire going to the 3rd pin from the right (pin 14 on 32 pin chip).

Which one is right???

To be honest - I've tried both and niether seems to work. I've searched for help on this forum - found a few references - but appear a little technical for me. Does it matter that I haven't as yet soldered the wire - just held it with tape so that it is touching a pin.

Any help on this matter would be much appreciated.

Since you have a 32-pin machine, how about not soldering the timing wire anywhere? Browse through old messages in this and the Saturn forum or wait for Mal to point out the thread.

Oh, you mean this thread.

By the way! Do I need anything extra to play backups from other countries or will this modchip play them all.

You really haven't researched these things much, have you?

The mod board only defeats the security check and lets you play CDRs.

You need either to convert the country code of an import disc image before burning with Satconv (DOS or Win32) or use a cartridge like an AR4M+. You can add region switches to your Saturn too, but that's possibly a bit complicated.
