|There can be two problems: |1. the contacts of the AR are dirty. Remove the cover, and rub the contacts |with a pencil eraser (with the more abrasive side) until they are bright and |shiny again. This helped a lot for me, before this treatment my AR would |work fine on any C64/128, but not on an SX! ok iv done that and now it works, but not the fast loader evey disk I load crashes and if i hold down the C= and switch on that locks up as well?? any ideas??? ps iv add the 8701? c64 clock chip out of a pal unit. But I have not change the 60hz clock to the 6522? is this the problem?? thanks matt ----- Original Message ----- From: "Nicolas Welte" <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: <email@example.com> Sent: Tuesday, July 13, 2004 4:45 AM Subject: Re: sx-64 pal ntsc?? > matt wrote: > > ok iv just got one from a new zealand (my home land) and am testing it. > > > > 1 it's ntsc the sound is faster than i am use to. 50hz here! > > As others have said already, the sound routines of many games usually run in > the vertical blanking interrupt (VBI), which is 60 Hz on NTSC machines. > Nothing you can do about it, except rewrite the game code or convert your > NTSC to be a true PAL machine (both options are very hard).
