Force PAL Dreamcast to 60hz USB-GDROM

Post#1 » Sun Mar 08, 2020 8:45 pm

I have a PAL Dreamcast with a USB-GDROM which auto patches games to run as the console's region. Some US/Japanese games run at 50Hz with letterboxing, I'm looking for a way to have everything run at 60Hz.

I've been having trouble finding out how to do that. I tried the r422 mod in case it worked as information on that was sparse, it made no difference. I thought getting a mod chip would do the trick but the person selling them said they're not sure it's going to achieve what I want.

Can anyone tell me how best to do this? I don't want to use swap discs, and when I tried one (you can load a second disc in waiting with the USB-GDROM) it didn't work anyway.

I don't suppose anyone know the person who makes the USB-GDROM and can ask him to implement a force 60Hz option on the firmware? I couldn't find anyway to contact him from his site.

Thanks

If anyone's interested I ended up just changing my Dreamcast to being a US one using this guide:
