Playing the revolution/Home Computer Invasion Documentaries in Trouble???

Original Link being gone, it makes me fear the worse.
I REALLY hope the reason isn't because of damn lawyers!

Here are two other sources for the Teasers on the most thrilling documentary series since The machine that Changed the World:








There's never been a computer documentary this well shot EVER, and nearly everyone I respect and admire in the industry took time to get interviewed. I really don't want this to be shelved.

(SAFE) US SMS Japanese Mod in action



Charles MacDonald provided a circuit for me to try
HERE

Good news is that it now works after a few treaks.
Just have to to a proper protoboard version now.

I'll be receiving two different FM Units soon, the original and the "Australian Reproduction"

The reluctant US SMS that didnt want to be japanese

EDIT2: A new solution (much more invovled ) was suggested by Charles MacDonald this will be interresting to try.

EDIT: Nice, I got my answers in that thread. I'll have to backtrack on when did this become a dangerous thing to try, FYIW I used 10k res to short pin 34.

This MOD does not work on my SMS:

















I tried everything, including burning a Japanese BIOS which works great here:


















While its cute and all (especially with my RGB mod to a Commodore 1084), I still don't get the mark III boot on my Wonderboy 1/2/3 carts when I ground pin 34 on 315-5216.

Another user is getting the exact same prob with this motherboard rev.

Any takes?
