How to play on an SNES:

A lot of people have been asking about this, so I think I'll 
put it in this FAQ. It's really not that hard to play the 
actual game in a SNES, rather then a Super Famicom. First 
of all, if you don't want to be risky, and don't know what 
you're doing, buy a SNES Converter. You can buy these at 
imports stores for about $15. I've seen these sold at If you don't want to buy the converter, 
and want to void any customer service option you may have, 
then read on. :)

1) Take your controllers and wires from the back off of 
   SNES. Look inside the slot where the game goes in on 
   the top. You should see something like this:

|      |1|                                 |2|       |
|         _______________________________            |                               |
|         |______________________________|           |
|_______                                     ________|

2) You'll have to find a way of cutting tabs "A" and 
  "B" out (these tabs block a Japanese game from going 
   into the SNES). I recommend using a Knife, Screwdriver, 
   and wirecutter combo. :) If you knife away at the 
   slabs, they'll eventually be cut, making it easy to 
   pry them out. They are very tough, though, and it 
   might take awhile to do it, but it's worth the hard 
   work. :) 

3) I have no idea if the small tabs "1" and "2" have 
   anything to do with it. I have cut mine off, however, 
   and they're easier than tabs "A" and "B" to cut off. 
4) Once you have everything cut off, try a putting a 
   Japanese game in the system. If it fits into the pins, 
   it worked. Otherwise, you'll have to keep cutting 
   away at the tabs until it fits.

5) Enjoy a Super Famicom game. :)
