    Default modded snes question

    are there some super famicom games from certain areas that still won't work on a snes with the tabs broken off? i have what looks like a multicart in a super famicom shell, which won't work with the tab-less snes i have, and i'd like to think that maybe the magic isn't dead...



    i took the screws out, but it still didn't want to open up very easily and i didn't want try to pry it too much.

    The only lockouts on the SNES are the cosmetic tabs. No lockout chips of any kind. Thus all SFC games will work on a SNES.

    Try cleaning the cart and system. If that doesn't work...sorry

    i'm not an expert for this but this looks like a pirate and pirates often come from Hong Kong and Hong Kong games often are PAL

    and yes, PAL SNES games don't work on US ones and vice versa without an adaptor, so this might be the reason...
