Get the ROMS. I guess for you, they'd actually be legal seeing as you own the games. Both games are really great if you haven't already played them.

Get a Super Famicom so you can play them, that it unless you don't already have one...

well, i've got two snes, a regular and a compact one, so i'm just going to break off the tabs on my regular snes so i can play imports. that's all you have to do to play imports on the NA snes.

if you look inside the slot where the snes cart goes into the snes there are two plastic tabs on the left and right of the connector on the back inside wall. if you clip these off you can play import games without translation. i recommend doing this on a regular snes instead of a compact snes, it's easier.

it works like a dream. right now i'm working on importing the remixes of dq1,2,3 so i can play them as well. since i have those three memorized i don't think i'll be as lost in the japanese text as i am in dq5 right now.

This may sound ignorant, but I don't think I have ever seen a compact SNES. Isn't the picture below a picture of a regular Super NES? or is it a compact one? :???:

Huh, I too had never seen a compact SNES. I'd heard of it, but never knew what it looked like. Thanks Kenshin.

I have the console, but I'm going to wait until I get my Japanese games in the mail (according to the EMS id# and the EMS website, they should be here around Monday or Tuesday), before I do it so I can make sure my games play properly because I've never done this before and I'm a little nervous about doing it... :Dc-worriedslime:

YAY!!!! My games came in the mail today!! Alot earlier then expected!!! :ws-slimebiggrin:

 

The boxes they are in look like they contain old VHS tapes (because of the shape), but they look really kewl!!! :mc-slimehappy:

 

Ok, I'm going to attempt to alter my SNES, so that it can also play Super Famicom games. I assume the two little "plastic tabs" we are talking about are the ones at the very bottom. The left one has a "-" sign on it, while the right one has a number "17" on it. If I am not correct then please let me know as soon as possible. Thanks. :sm_babblecap:

Sorry about the triple post, but I just realized that those tabs are not the correct ones. They are the eject tabs, and are connected to the eject button. I think I see the ones you mean, they are on the back bottom inside walls (the same color as the walls). Sorry about the confusion...

Yippeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

 

It works!!! :mc-slimehappy:

I really appreciate the tip, it was alot cheaper then trying to get a Super Famicom off of Ebay!!! (I found a used non-yellowed SNES at EBGames in Wilmington, NC- an hour north of here...)

Thanks everyone! :ws-slimebiggrin:

 

PS- Sorry about the quadruple post. Please don't shoot me... :Dc-worriedslime:

Nope, the games are still in Japanese...

My other SNES games still play fine. The two plastic tabs you break off are actually just two little plastic tabs put on the inside back wall (that just happens to be plastic too). They aren't connected to any of the SNES circuitry or any of the electronic parts of the SNES. Therefore snapping those little plastic things off doesn’t interfere with regular game play.

(The only real difference in the SNES game cartridges (other then the Japanese games look more "curved" and the US game cartridges look more "squared off") is that on the back side of the US games, on the bottom, has two little slots that allow the game to slide onto the those two little plastic tabs on the back and the Japanese games don't have those slots...)

Do you know if there is any way to play DQV in english??? :???:

 

The only way right now is to get a ROM. Hopefully the PS2 remake will come over to the US.
