Have installed a emulator for sega but it isnt the same, plus isnt perfect.

But I have some import games I never played due to my old Saturn not being modded.

Also miss my old Sonic Jam and have some rare games where I want to back them up so needs to be able to play isos(not just the region mod though I have an action replay)

1 pad at least, an analog pad is a bonus, with any games a bigger bonus! esp Sonic 3d, Daytona, Sega Rally etc.

Also note the price is basic depending on the mod and what comes with it, may be willing to pay a large amount more for the right deal.
Shipping/Payment:
Paypal preffered due to security but I can pay by bank transfer too.

If you still have a saturn can't you mod it yourself? http://www.racketboy.com/saturn-modchip/

Is it easy to mod?

I've got a Saturn where I would also like to play back-ups (, I didn't even realise I had so many rare games).
The Website burb is bound to make it sound easy to install (to get the sale), but I've never modded anything before. I don't even have any soldering equipment.

Also cicobuff, might have implied this, but is the site reliable? Also is it the cheapest?

I knew a website where the guy would do all the soldering to the chip for you.

All you had to do was crack it open and place wires in wee holes. It was a cinch.

I had a modded saturn I recently let go with loads of accessories for £40 as well.

OP, I have Sega Rally for the Saturn you can HAVE if you happen to get a console, I have two of them, so am sure I wouldnt mind giving it ya :p

I din't personally own a Saturn (although own a lot of retro stuff), this is the only modchip I came up with on google, reviews seem positive http://www.racketboy.com/retro/2004/12/sega-saturn-mod-chips-now-on-sale.html shipping prices seem reasonable from the USA.

Most modchip soldering, at least on older consoles where the soldering points tend to be larger is relatively easy, and usually don't require any additional solder. If you are used to being able to take stuff apart with confidence, it doesn't really take that much more confidence to be able to add a little bit of flux to the contacts, pre tin the stripped wires with solder, hold the wire on the contact to melt and make a solid contact. You would of course need a low heat soldering iron with a fine tip.

I have modded my old Xbox, GameCube and Wii with no troubles at all, and my soldering experience is very little, try practicing on some old dead boards if you have any knocking around, and do some research on soldering tips

However, if these modchips are hard to source, and that is the only supplier of them, then surely you could order and then pay someone with relevent soldering experience to do the job for you if you are that worried about messing things up...a local electrical repair shop would have the equipment and the skills.

Just found a UK supplier of a Saturn Mod Chip in stock http://home.clara.net/robwebb/shop/saturn/saturnhard.htm Although these modchips do not work on all Saturns, you need to check your revisions, and looking at the installation guide, bridge certain solder points on the modchip relevant to your motherboard revision.

If you dont however intend to play backups, then a Action Replay card would suffice to play imports.

the above post has the seller :) robwebb.

Go there, ask for the V2 chip, and ask the gentleman to presolder the points for you.

I'll have a better look into mod chips, before deciding, but I'm about 60% sure I will be doing that, as I've just bought a 3D Anologue pad off ebay :-) (I broke my old one ages ago).

I haven't touched my Saturn for over two years, even though I haven't (technically) stored it away.

Been a pessimist, if I screw up the modding, how much would a replacement Saturn cost? I don't really trust ebay prices this time, as some of the delivery costs can be £20, and I don't believe a saturn costs £20.

ConsolePassion should be able to mod a Saturn for you.

take charlies. It's a good package.

You don't even really need the action replay. you can region mod the isos.
#11
It is a good price, may even consider it myself if OP doesnt go for it :)
#12
Sounds good so it plays cd'rs? and just have to use a action replay(which I have) to make it multi region?

If so ill take it

Details sent.

Hi ryouga

Have just PM'd you as I've tested the console and unfortunately it's not working (it's been in storage for a couple of years). Sorry about that.

Hope you manage to find (a working!) one.

Have a free bump :thumbsup:
