    I don't know what type of a converter I had back when I was a kid, alll I know is that it was a one cartridge slot one and it would play anything I'd throw at it, Japanese games, US NTSC ones, never had issues booting anyhing up.

    Nowadays I generally play my favorite old school games games through emulators but still every once in a while I set up the original systems and play them on hardware. The converter/adapter I have now is some pretty terrible AD-29 thing which boots only half of my games properly.
    For example I was able to run Whirlo(the japanese one whatever it's called) just fine but my SFC Kirby 3 and Hagane say they're not designed for my type of SNES/SFC whatever, it's a regional protection thing. I'm you know, glad I own these games and I don't mind THAT much being unable to play them with my current coverter since SNES emulation is 100% ...or at least it feels 100% to a casual like me, but I was wondering if I should be looking into a new converter and which brand would play anything I throw at it, like the one I had as a kid.

    tbh I'd love to buy a SFC Jr. the design is absolutely gorgeous but importing a $120 system to Macedonia would cost me $80 in taxes at least so that's a no go, plus I don't know what i'd do with the difference in power and such.

    I buy a lot of SFC games now, the import friendly ones since they're much cheaper and are a good way to restore my lost SNES collection. Region really is irrelevant to me as long as the game is playable and not locked behind a language barrier.
    I mean come on I got Hagane and Whirlo for practically nothing compared to their PAL prices
