How to hex edit games to change the frequency from 50 to 60 Hz

OK - get hold of 'hedit' I find it a very fast hex editor!

Run hedit and open up your games disk image.. (.bin - .iso - .cdi - that kinda thing!)

Go to the 'edit' menu in hedit and select replace - a window will pop up with 4 text input boxes:
The first section is called 'Find what' and it has 2 text boxes (text and hex)
Copy this line:
01 E4 03 A0 02 E4 01 A0 03
and paste it into the 'hex' text box.

The second section is called 'Replace with' and it also has 2 text boxes labelled text and hex.
Copy this line:
00 E4 03 A0 00 E4 01 A0 00
and paste it into the 'hex' text box.

Click on the 'Replace All' button....
and wait..............

When it has finished replacing the data - go to the file menu and save.

Now burn away!!

It really is that easy!!
