    Hey melbs, welcome back!

    Yep, Saturn's are region locked regardless of region.

    However, you can make it region free.

    The basic theory is simple: There are jumpers on the Saturn mainboard which tell the OS what country it is running in. Changing these jumpers will make the Saturn believe it is running in another country, allowing you to run imported software. It will NOT work for copied software (Software pirates must die!), nor will it translate your games from Japanese to English.
    You can get some (relatively easy?) steps to do it here.

    I don't know if EYO or others still mod Saturns. I remember them putting a switch for US and Japan mode.

    Good luck!
    jromz03@Pinoy-N.com. Love you too!

    I'm about to re-acquire a Saturn (Japanese this time) this week, damn that region mod looks prickly. Not a problem I guess, because I'll be watching out for Japanese games (mostly fighting games) anyway.

    Just tried playing with the saturn again, but this time attaching it to my recent tvs(2000 trinitron and a 2007 s series lcd tv), and its disappointing to find out the virtua gun won't work for both. I guess I need to keep my '94 tv just to play virtua cop

    About to get a 4MB RAM cart this week, SFA3, here I come! Also, getting a few games including Nights, Grandia, Saturn Bomberman, a multitap, and that 3D stick.

    Been playing Sonic Jam the whole week to tide me over. Fun.
