If I get a PAL-region game, and try to play it on a NSTC NES, will it work without modifications?
How weird, I've literally just tried this.
I'm UK based, and using an American toploader, with an AV mod. I tried several PAL titles on it, and they all fit, and worked albeit with faster music. (higher pitch too)
If it's a normal NES, I'm not so sure. But it would have the same outcome if they fit. (faster music)
Top loader NES consoles don't have the 10NES lockout chips installed, so they should work out of the box. On a front loader, you'll have to cut a pin out of the chip to make it work region free.
Ok, so they work on Top Loaders, but not Front Loaders. I'll keep that in mind if I ever want to play PAL NES games on NTSC hardware. But one more question: Does this apply for certain emulators like PocketNES for example?
