    Default Technical qn regarding MD / MCD / 32X region issues

    I am selling a PAL copy of the 32X CD game Supreme Warrior on eBay, and have just received the following question, which I am not entirely sure how to answer:

    Hi there, tech question for you - will the game work on a u.k mega cd, through a switched megadrive (i have modded it for any region\language ect.) and an american 32x?

    many thanks,

    kerry-ann21
    My guess would be that the game would check the region code against the MCD bios it encountered and so should be fine - but I'm not entirely sure. Anyone able to say for sure?

    Well the MD has to be in PAL mode 50hz/Eng for the CD to even boot. He should be ok, but tell the guy to check this for how to add a 50/60Hz switch to a 32X.

    You'd hope so. Really hope so. But this is the land of the internet; where a 60yr old man can be a 14yr old girl. Scary.

    Anyhow, hope that helped the buyer and you flog the game.
