I take it there is no US version of the freeloader to play PAL imports?

 

Mind you, why would you want to play PAL games when they are released in the states first? I have the opposite problem living in the UK, lol

ocassionally Ninty do release in the UK first (well Europe) e.g. Mario Kart DD... although it was by about 3 days or something... :S I'm sorry but that does not let NTSC gamers feel our pain! :(

 

Anyone remember 1080 on N64?... Held back a YEAR for PAL gamers because it took to long to release it that "snowboarding season" was over... right.... >.>

 

Anyway I was meaning a mod to play PAL/NTSC since I'm a PAL gamer.

No... most people in the US don't even have PAL capability on their TVs from what I can gather from a friend...

Nope, we don't have TV's that run at 60HZ. And its useless to play pal games on a TV here unless you have a VGA Box or a video card that as Video-In.

The problem with PAL gamers is that we have to wait for the game to be made into other European languages, which is a pain in the arse as it would be so easy to just convert the US version to PAL, but I guess that would only help us Brits, :lol:

 

I find that games look better graphically at 50Hz but at 60Hz you get a hugely smoother gameplay with no black boarder but the scanlines/picture can sometime look stretched, but I guess in the long run, 60Hz allways wins :lol:
