    Can I play the PAL Version of Super Mario All Stars on a Japanese Super Famicom with just a simple removal of pin 4 of the CIC lockout chip in the console, or can I do it by removing the lockout on the cartridge?

    No. The game performs a 50Hz/60Hz check.

    I tested it. It gives me a black screen. Also, what converters/adapters can play PAL SMAS on JAP SFC?

    Do you know one that bypasses the 50hz/60hz check, like SMAS?

    I don't know how these work but when you sue these with two slot, the adapter make it read the region chip from the cart behing and the game from the other in front.
