Super Famicom PAD MOD to work with PAL SNES

Hi Folks,
there are two ways to make Super Famicom Pads work on a PAL SNES.

a) You can mod the ControllerPort inside the PAL SNES and shortcut the 4 diodes with some wire.


b) You mod the controller inside

I found different PCB generations inside the SuperFamicom. A PCB copyright 1992 shows with big arrows: Only P


OK I have a look inside a PAL SNES Controller and shows to me: R1=1,2kOhm and R2=3kOhm.
I done a quickshot with standard Resistors and used 1,2k and 3,3k. And :-) Yeah a japanese Controller is working on my PAL SNES.

A “older” japanese PCB from 1991 is missing the two resistor spaces. After checking the cirquits at 1992 Layout, no problem for this layout too.

Put 1,2kOhm between Pin 5 and Pin 4 and

3,3k between Pin 5 and Pin 3

of the ControllerCable Connector and it works too


Have Fun
