Super street fighter 2 Genesis - PAL version

Hi everybody,

I applied Hiryu's patch to Super Street Fighter 2 Genesis ROM and launched it on my PAL Megadrive console, using Mega Everdrive v.7.

Since the source ROM and the patch are USA version,  the game runs fine but the music sounds slowed down.

I tried using a Hex editor to set the first number at 000001f0 address to 45, like i did fon several other ROMS, but it doesn't work.

Is there any other  way to have the patched ROM  work on an actual PAL system?

One of two options, both of which requiring a lot of technical know-how:

1) Reprogram the sound engine in the US (and consequently patched) version to PAL.

2) Port all the patch mods to the PAL version of the game (assuming that the PAL version cared to optimize the sound, I haven't played it so I don't know).

#2 is probably somewhat more doable but it is surely not a "change one byte and everything suddenly works" operation.

Completely agree with you.
