View Full Version : megakey not working, with a US CDX
Anyone else try everdrive's megakey on an NTSC-US CDX? It doesn't work for mine. I've tested Sailor Moon and Golden Axe 3 fail their region check.
This is the American system, not multimega. If that makes any difference...

not need to test megakey my games. if megakey can work on the current system, then in device info megakey will be enabled. megakey testing by the games is not clear, because some games may have header where region signature may not match to actual region which want to see an region security routine. in this case OS will disable megakey or will set wrong region

I haven't tried those games in particular, but games from other regions have been working fine on my CDX so far.

Also, if you happen to be using a 32X you can't play other regions.

yeah, megakey will not work via 32x
I'm not using 32x. and megakey is set to "off" in the menu. I believe that means all japanese games which block english mode will not run, making it a little wasteful to go test everything. but if you have a list of those maybe i'll try anyway.

if megakey is turned off in device info, it mean that chip which used for megakey implementation is dead, or megakey can't work on your system. by some unknown reasons megakey not work on some systems, but usually it is some of model one genny/md. in case if megakey not works i trying to use software patching, but this fewture was losted in last versions of os, but will be returned in next releases
OK good to know. patches are the way to go then. playing games in a language i don't read won't get me far.
