> > You need to put an NTSC CIC (lockout) chip in the DX2. You can either get this chip out of your NTSC SWC DX or unsolder one from a cheap SNES NTSC cart. I don't know where it's located in the DX. Most SNES carts will label it "CIC" on the circuit board. It's a 16 pin IC. Plug it in to your DX2 in location U10. Make sure you line up pin one on the IC (don't put the IC in backwards).

> Thanks for your explanations. I think I can do that. But just a question... can I get the chip and extract the rom from that? or is the rom (in file) somewhere? I'd like to duplicate it into one or two more chips. I'm sure I won't get that from my Parodius3 ;)

I'm not sure what you're talking about. With the DX2 you don't need the ROMs anymore. You can dump the ROMs on a cart to your PC.

There was another post implying you needed a BIOS swap but you don't need that, all you need is the NTSC CIC chip installed in U10.
