Some are wired as 20-pin (older oval buttons) some are wired as 21-pin as you can see in the photo. No idea if they work, unfortunately I only have one 21-pin connector ribbon cable, gotta see if I can find some more.

I would be very interested in that 20-pin modchip but where could i find a 20-pin ribbon cable Do you know if this would work in a Jap model 1 Saturn?

I recently purchased some replacement Snes rubber controller parts from Rob Webb I had a look on his website (http://www.consolegoods.co.uk/) and i could only find a 21-pin Saturn modchip with ribbon cable for 12.99.... i cannot see any 20-pin ribbon cables

If a 20-pin cable can be found then i would like to purchase a 20-pin modchips if you are selling any?

I was planning on getting a few 21-pin cables and... surprise surprise, cutting off one pin with wire cutters

If more than 3 work, you're at the front of the queue. No timescales though. I've had these for what.. 9-10 years and never fitted any of them.

I suppose cutting a wire is a slightly crude but effective way of doing it I look forward to hearing if they are still alive... then i can try it in one of my Jap model 1 Saturns (either the Sega or the Victor) cheers

It is flat ribbon cable. A ruler and a scalpel and you'd never know the difference

My 3D controller arrived yesterday. Well, the buttons are really OK, just like the Model 2 d-pad. The analog stick could be better. Not really that smooth. Though it works good enough with Deep Fear, Wing Arms, Nights or even Out Run (and other racing games of course).

I really liked the Saturn Analogue pad, but that was when I'd had little exposure to them.

Really want to get one again

Looks and feels like a Dreamcast prototype controller. I have no clue why Sega released the DC pad with a SNES 4-button design. The 6-button Saturn style is much better, especially for fighters. Yes, there are arcade sticks, but...

Maybe your analog stick is a bit worn? I have a Jap 3D pad and the analog stick is nice and smooth Did you get your action replay?

No, the stick is in good condition. It isn't as smooth as other analog sticks i've tried, that's all. I get the Action Replay probably next week, play-asia shipping takes mostly 7-8 days.

I've read some comments about "not working" Saturn cartridges. Some guys suggest to pull out the cart a bit, others said to put it most leftmost. Anyway, works fine here.

I was going through and moving all my sega stuff into one box when I came across a load of cartridges, probably all the same. I'll try and take some photos.

One is a Magic Card v2

One is a Datel Action replay Pro cartridge with a "Comms link" ISA card for the PC and a cable



Another is an EMS Action Replay 4M plus cartridge with a PC Link ISA card

Nice little collection I'm guessing they are quite old now? I'm sure they don't make EMS carts with the comm link anymore so it could be one of the older "troublesome" revsions.

Do you stilll have the Magic Card V2? It's a handy thing to use if you have an unmodded Saturn .... the rest of those cards are probably not much use these days which is a shame.
