I've added a few more guide adjustments. David Lee made some amazing images that I've integrated into the guide. Thanks David!

I’m assuming the downloads for patched ISOs are NTSC?

I have a PAL Saturn with a 50/60hz switch but won’t be able to use my action replay card to load the game as the net link will be in the cartridge slot.

correct they are all NTSC format. You might try patching the region header to PAL with this software

https://madroms.satakore.com/#SRP (Saturn Region Changer) and then burn one copy to test. If you are able to test that and it does work please let me know and I'll make a PAL section for the ISO's

Just wanted to say a massive thank you for the guide - after a LOT of tweaking of settings, a bit of blood, a lot of sweat (when my VOIP adapter seeminly died...) and plenty of tears I finally had my first race on Sega Rally today!

So good to get a second SEGA console back online!

Excellent. What was your playing experience like? Where are you located and what was the distance between you and your opponent? Did you use the modifier ISOs?
