    Hello all, I am having trouble converting my original PAL copy of Free Running to NTSC. I used the latest pal2ntsc with yfix but my result was a dark green screen after booting with Swap Magic 2.0, and the same result when using Zoneloader.

    I was wondering if anyone else has tried converting this game or have heard of this situation before, and if so, if they have any solutions. As this game doesn't look like its ever coming to the US, I would really like to get this working.

    Any help would be much appreciated, thanks.

    The best solution is of course a good modchip
    Or even getting a more up to date Swap Maguc like 3.0 or above (which you could download and use 2.0 to load)
    Then you should not have to patch most games.
    Just use the video mode selector on the main screen.

    I had thought about trying to boot SM 3.6 with 2.0, but have heard nothing but "doesn't work". Well, i took your advice and tried it out and it didn't work, even with ZoneLoader (TOC refresh).

    Are there any other options?

    I got it working! I simply used Swap Magic 2>Zoneloader>pick PAL video mode.

    Thanks for your help.

    I forgot to mention i had to burn an UNPATCHED copy of the game to use this method.

    Err...this forum really needs an edit button. I meant to say switch to NTSC Video Mode, not PAL.
