Dynablaster might as well be the old woman; I was on it a lot more and a lot longer…

Thanks Graham!

I'm testing adfs NTSC version in WinUAE and switching to NTSC in start menu(both mouse buttons pressed).

I am worried about the speed(too fast or too slow) and screensize(too big or too small)

It's not possible for an NTSC game to damage a PAL Amiga. Well not because of the difference in TV system anyway. If it had a virus on it it might..

(I heard a story once about an Amiga virus that destroyed the floppy drive by repeatedly banging the read/write head against the floppy).

If your TV isn't NTSC (or "Brazilian mode" - PAL60) capable you will know immediately when the picture starts to "roll". If that happens you can try to investigate if there is a secret "technician" trick to switch your TV to NTSC mode. Like holding some button on the remote while switching it on or something.

An NTSC game does not run in NTSC on the Amiga. It will run in PAL with a large portion of the screen unused at the bottom.
Also, all NTSC games will work fine in PAL. This isn't true for PAL games on NTSC machines.

frikilokooo, you can switch your machine to NTSC in early-startup menu. Many games will then run in selected mode.

I remember there being a problem of music if you ran a PAL game on an NTSC computer. I'd imagine there might be the same the other way around because the timing is very slightly different.

(The bigger problem with running a PAL game on an NTSC Amiga is missinng part of the screen making it sometimes impossible to play.. But that wouldn't be a problem the other way around with an NTSC game in a PAL Amiga..)
