I got my turbo ED and put all the roms from the goodset separated in PCE and TG16 (JAP vs USA).
I also put all the the system cards including CD Games Express.
I have a non modified/untouched JAP TurboDuoR.
Turbo ED works and the JAP games I tried work (only a few to be honest)
I can load any System card that is JAP and I get the correct behavior SYS 1.00 has debug feature and load CD-ROMROM only, SYS 2.00/2.10 have NO debug and load CD-ROMROM only, SYS 3.00 loads Super CD-ROMROM, CD games express loads the Games express games only. So with turbo ED inserterd you can play all CD-ROMROM and Super CD-ROMROM games (on a TruboDuo/DuoR/DuoRX). None of the US Sys cards booted for me.
Many US games do not work, the letter T from the good set is almnost embarassing, I'd say 8 out of 10 do not boot.
TV Sports football/TV sport basketball etc... just hang at a blank screen. The JAP version of the same games works just fine. There are quite some other games that do not work (Air Zonk/ Victory Race/ Pac Land/ and quite some other).
I started going thru all of them and I have to say that quite a few US work fine but quite some do not work. I suspect that the patching routine does not always work or some in game extra checks.
As my TurboDuoR has not been region modded can someone with the PIN lifted try those games while leaving the TurboED in PCE mode?
Basically I'd like to know if I were to lift the right PIN (http://www.mmmonkey.co.uk/console/pce/region.htm) would TurboED magically work on those games or do I have also to swpa the traces and switch TurboED to Tg16, basically rendering useless the run time patching from JAP to US but maybe the other way works (as there's no region check on JAP games)?
If this is a firmware bug it kind of sucks as the TurboED is not really upgradable, I have the version without USB so it will be a bitch to fix, maybe sending it back to Krikkz would help once he diagnoses the problem.
