I want to buy pre-VA3 SMS1
Post Posted: Thu Aug 27, 2020 1:24 pm
I don't want VA3 SMS1 because it has the newer VDP in it from SMS2.

I want one that has the old VDP in it.

Ideally I'd like to study a launch model of SMS1, from around 1986

PM me @n4of7 on twitter because I don't check my PMs on this forum

EDIT: I said "study". To clarify, I am studying several Master System boards. I've been doing SMS2 mods for a while now, and I even discovered a method to reverse jailbars (I posted about it on this forum).

Well I want to do the same on SMS1 hardware and learn everything about it. Unfortunately, pre-VA3 SMS1 hardware is extremely hard to find online.

Ideally I want an NTSC model, but I can mod a PAL console for 60hz

Hi there appreciate you don’t really check the forum but I’m not on Twitter.

I have a US model 1 from 1988 it’s the M4 version I can’t see a V number anywhere, would that be of interest?

It’s this one:

Yes, PM me. Tell me your price.

I have an NTSC M4 unit, but it's a v3 one

Yours looks different to mine.

I'm studying every board revision, to investigate jailbar fixes on all of them
