CD32 NTSC Mega Collection?

I bought my Amiga CD32 new in about 2007. It was NOS from China. When I bought it, I did know that it was the NTSC version, but I didn't know that nearly all CD32 games are PAL. I've downloaded quite a few CD32 collections over the years. I'm able to use most of them by changing to PAL mode using the mouse button and selecting PAL mode. This works for many games with my Amiga 1080 monitor. Switching to PAL mode this way isn't true PAL mode, but it's close enough for most games to work okay.

Is there an unofficial CD32 NTSC-only collection for us folks who bought NTSC systems? This would allow me to play my CD32 on a 25" TV, rather than hovering around that little 13" monitor.

I don't think there's any CD32 titles that are NTSC, although many might run in an NTSC unit in NTSC mode.

If your TV can't do 50Hz I am afraid you're shit out of luck.

I believe you can boot your CD32 in PAL (and PAL CD32's can be booted in NTSC too) by plugging in a mouse into port one and holding down both buttons.

Having said that I'm not sure how many games can actually be played that way (pretty sure F17 challenge by Team17 is one game that won't work)


Crap, I should have read the original post more closely..

Have you tried the CD32 compilation CD's? CD32 100/200/350/444/888 compilations.
