One thing I've always wanted to do is learn how to solder and have always been too scared to give it a go. Daft as it sounds. Last week a friend though my girlfriends parents who was an electrical engineer taught me how.
Having seen several pal/ntsc tutorials on the internet i got the courage to give it a go. With fresh soldering skills i tackled the pal/ntsc and language mod to a sega megadrive 2 and got it to work. :-)
I have a more ambitious sega mod to come now I've ticked that off the list.
Just need to win some stuff from ebay!!
See the pics below showing the mod as well as my Japanese Super Ghosts and Goblins used to test the pal/ntsc mod.
