North American Gameshark (NTSC) and Action Replay (PAL) codes are, with 95% of all codes, not compatible.

PS: Could people just STOP calling the European Action Replay / Equalizer and Xplorer 64 / Xploder 64, for a Gameshark, for crying out loud!!

Gameshark = North American = NTSC codes.
Action Replay and Xplorer 64 = European = PAL codes.

How hard can it actually be?

Well it depends actually....

Sometimes you just can "convert" north american NTSC codes to European PAL, or vice versa...But you must remember some things before doing so, and there is also the Xplorer 64, encrypted codes you need to watch out for.

Some codes can be "converted" by doing substractions or sums with the Hexadecimal / Decimal, code converter.

OOPS! Sorry I realise now that we were talking about hardware!

Nope, NTSC hardware doesn't work with PAL hardware/software in this case.

No, if you look at an Equalizer or Action Replay and a UK cartridge, you will notice that the dip in the tab is larger and goes all the way to the end on the Action Replay. The USA (NTSC) cartridge, has cut corners.

Like in the pic below

The video standard seems to depend on the machine the cartridge is inserted to.

Hope this clears everything up?

Just a PS: I, kai666.com, do NOT use or or endorse these Xplorer 64 encrypted codes on my website.

I like to call them for "encrippled" codes, as they make a hard job, even worse!
