Hook up the CD32 to a 1084S and you should be able to play PAL games. It's a PITA I know.

The only NTSC game I have ever seen for the CD32 was "Diggers." A 1084 will display in PAL (as will a multisystem TV) but the NTSC CD32 system will still have issues playing some PAL games even when booted in PAL mode.

When I had my CD32 back in '95, I remember having:

Pinball Fantasies, Sleepwalker, D/Generation, Heimdall 2, The Lost Vikings, Pirates Gold and some 1st person adventure game that was kinda like Myst & 7th Guest - can't remember the name of it offhand. All of these were NTSC.
 
Sold my CD32 for an N64 shortly after it was released. lol

Guess I've been lucky, only CD32 game (NTSC or PAL) I have trouble with is Simon the Sorceror ....

There were quite a few NTSC CD32 releases, iirc...


Frank, sold yer CD32 for an N64 ??? Man, that's a tough call.... Both systems needed more kick-a$$ games...
 
That 1st person adv. ... wouldn't have been 'Labyrinth of Time', by chance?

PS, and totally OT, anyway to get a CD32 to read CD-r's? Mine never has, it'll play the expensive music CD-R's only... :angry:

Yes I have lemmings for my CDTV, I was just hoping to find a few NTSC cd32 titles to play. I also have CD32 sports football, i didn't buy it and not sure how i ended up with it TBO but I'm not into sports games.

Hmm... I had the Pinball / Sleepwalker games combo disc back in 1995 and remember them being PAL but playable on my NTSC system and TV. There were sound glitches and the bottom of the screen was missing a bit though.

I really can't state for fact what was and was not produced for NTSC CD32's but considering the system was never officially released in the united states the number has to be very small.

Either my combo disc really was NTSC or I happened to have a television back in the mid 90's that handled PAL/NTSC modes (doubtful, but I guess anything is possible). It was a brand new Mitsubishi 35" I had back then and would have been made in '94. I would not have tolerated the sound glitches and NOT being able to see all of the screen in PF for sure. I know exactly what you mean though... a good portion (if not all) of the flippers are chopped off when not displayed properly. WEAK!

And Marc, yes... Labyrinth of Time was the game, thanks!

Some PAL games seem to work just fine in NTSC mode, while others will not display properly unless you play them in PAL mode.  There was a similar discussion on another forum I visit, but it's down right now.  I'll see if I can dig up the thread once that site is back up.

@Kedawa,

Yes this seems to get covered every few months or so. In a nutshell, some developers would only use the NTSC graphics area to save programming time doing different screen sizes for other countries. This is great but for some reason that I don't understand, the sounds would sometimes get messed up when you played a PAL game on an NTSC system.

I remember not understanding this at all back in the early 90's and was blissfully unaware that I was missing the little pin between the flippers when playing pinball dreams on my NTSC A-500 and 1084 monitor. I also attributed occasional messed up sounds with bad cracks and not the fact that the games were PAL.
 
Now that I have a PAL TV and a PAL CD32 (and 1200 actually) it makes a huge difference in games that I though were working before but now look and sound much better. Cannon Fodder is another example of a game that would play ok in NTSC but the intro music would be all messed up.
 
Somewhere, and I think Camy has the link, there is a list of CD32 games and how they play on what systems.
