ok, i might be way wrong here..
but i will base my opinion on a NES clone that i have..
and have 2 cart slots (which cant be used at same time, 1 60 pin and another 72 pin slot.) and he works perfectly.. with both american and japanese games..
and also a nes that a friend of mine "did", he took his normal nes and added a 60 pin cart slot (no changes other than that.., 2 slots.. pretty bizarre looking console :), and both us and jap carts works for him.. and there are adaptor to us->jap, and vice-versa.. or i ask.. does the NES have smoething as a region switch, or something? if does, why none of the emulators i know do have an option to a different region ?

just wondering..
any trustfull info will be welcome. :)

Worse than the lost, is the humiliation.
