Someone said he had a new SWCDX2 that didn't work correctly with Mario Kart.

I have now got my hands on a Mario Kart game cartridge (PAL version). I first tried to play it through the SWCDX2 (run the cartridge). Then I get graphics problem in the upper screen (the one that mario is driving in). I then tried to dump the cartridge to a disk and then loaded it. The game got the same strange graphics problem as when I played the cart through the copier.

I then downloaded Mario Kart ROM from I downloaded both the PAL and NTSC version of the game. Both worked completely fine (I had the PAL cartridge insterted in the SWCDX2 too ofcoz).

So conclusion: I cannot play my PAL cart when it's on top of the SWCDX2, nor can I dump it and play it. But I can play the Mario Kart ROM I downloaded from Cherry roms. And I can also play all other DSP-games I have downloaded (10 games I think).

So you can play the game, but you can't dump your own cart and play it.

Quite odd. Is there someone who knows why it behaves like this?
