Hi!

 

After Years, I've finally ordered a Harmony Cartridge. As I live in a PAL-Country (Germany), my question would be: What BIOS should I use?

From what I know, the Game "decides" the Frames per Second to put out, so why a PAL60-BIOS? Is it needed to play PAL60-ROMs on the Harmony and how do standard PAL-Games (i.e. PAL50) react to that BIOS?

The BIOS versions are solely for the menu displayed. PAL-60 makes sense because the displayed content is larger, with less black top and bottom bars and also has less flicker.

 

The games don't care for the BIOS you are using at all.
