CD32 ntsc

Hi guys, I recently got hold of a new (old stock) cd32, brilliant machine and love playing all the old games after buying an amiga 1200 that died on me. Only thing is that I was told if I switch it to ntsc in the menu it would be smoother? as in no slowdowns... I dont have an amiga mouse at the moment to try this so is it actually worth it? ps. never realised that the cd32 gamepads were so flimsy:O

Most of the NOS CD32's are all NTSC and should start in NTSC

You sure you've got a PAL one?

Playing games in NTSC will make them faster but if they were designed to use the full PAL resolution with no borders then you will loose some of the screen.

Maybe put pad in mouse port and hold down Red and Blue while reseting

Some people advice against hop swaping pads.

edit: Doh you wont be able to move the mouse cusor unless you have a keyboard press space
