This is most likely the world’s easiest region switch for NEC consoles other than the US tg16, use my other kit for that, even easier! Tested and working on white PCengine, core grafx, pce duo, turbo duo, and supergrafx consoles.
Useful for using arcade system cards on your US system since the Jap versions are cheaper and the tennokoe bank game save card which didn’t have a US version, but also simply for playing carts of a different region than your console accepts.
Much like the TG-16 region switch i’ve been selling for a while. I held this one back as the TurboEverdrive wasn’t working on the white pce and coregrafx. Turned out to be a problem with the older TEDs, newer 2.x TEDs work fine with this kit!
I have tried to install one in the turbo express and it will not fit, but there is a switchless version of this mod that could be a better choice for the NEC portables. Stay tuned.
Warning, the pc engine consoles need pin 29 of the Hu6280 chip grounded. Watch my vids about this, some are easier than others to ground!
This is not for beginners, at least an intermediate level of skill is necessary!
The only thing you need to supply is the legs, I use legs I cut from capacitors and resistors, but you could just use bare wire. Watch the install vid to see what I mean.
