Hi all, for sale this morning i have a model 2 Megadrive and Mega CD.

The megadrive has been switchless modded so by holding the reset button down you can switch between Eng 50hz (green led)/US 60hz (Orange led)/Jap 60hz (red led) releasing the button on the desired region. A quick tap of the reset button will reset the console as normal and hold the reset for 1-2 seconds will switch just the 50/60hz setting. I have also fitted the extra wire from the switchless pic chip to pin 6 of the av connector on the megadrive. This means if the new owner owns or picks up a 32x they can solder a wire inside the 32x to allow that to switch along with the rest of the machine. You can see how from this wolfsoft article (see adding 32x support section)

The Mega CD has had its bios chip socketed and replaced with with a multibios. It has been wired so that it switches region along with the console. It also has a fuse holder fitted to the outer case which means the fuse can be replaced without having to open the machine. Finally the led has been changed for a blue one.

There is an RGB Scart cable included. It doesn't look pretty as it was constructed using the connector from an RF cable and an old scart lead i found at home however it functions fine.

As for power i have modified a 12V 3.7A Nintendo Wii power supply by removing the wii connector and soldering in cables to power the mega drive and mega cd from one plug. There is also a spare connector for a 32x should the new owner wish.

A 3 button controller and Fifa International Soccer Championship Mega CD game will also be included. There are no cartridge games included.

I am looking for £75 (was £100 then £90 then £80) plus p&p

Declaring interest pending shipping cost to Spain.

Does the megadrive allows to insert jap games? i have for example virtuaracing jap and it has a rectangle shell so it can't be inserted in normal unmodified pal consoles...

Hi, I have not cut the slot so Japanese cartridges won't fit. The only reason I have not modded the slot is because I don't have any Japanese carts for reference.

Ok, it's fine, i've already modified a megadrive model 1 for this.

How much would it be shipping cost to my address? (Spain, postal code 15570)

Thanks!

Hi, unfortunately postage looks like it might be a deal breaker sadly but i'll leave it up to you

Cheapest quotes i can find through parcel2go

£32.95 - Parcelforce Euro - 3-5 days for delivery, tracked and insured to £100

£35.59 - Yodel Economy (not the best reputation for handling packages) 5-8 days for delivery, tracked and insured to £100

£46.79 - UPS Economy (usually who i use but seems to be quite expensive) 3-5 days for delivery, tracked and insured to £100

Hi!

yes, with shipping cost it's up to 183 euros... so i withdraw interest... it's a pity, system looks pretty nice, and mods are a good adition (i'm collecting JAP titles).

I hope you find another buyer soon, the system deserves it! :)

No worries, i figured it would probably kill the deal sadly :(

Lets try a quick price drop to £90 plus p&p

For any potentially interested persons, Mike has done this switchless mod for me on one of my MD2's and it is flawless! (y)

:LOL: I'm lurking as I may as well collect the rest of Sega's hardware given what I already have, but I can't justify it this month :wink:

The SegaCD is already at home, beautifull, working as a charm, i could try several carts, Snatcher and Final fight... delightfull :-D

And the package was also very well done thanks! :thumbsup2:

I cant try the japanese carts for now, but i'll do the mod to the case, because this is going to be my primary Megadrive system.

Feedback left!
