US/Canadian Software on UK machine

Recommended Posts

I've just got an AVG cart and am keen to put software on it but looking at the cart files on Atari Mania, most of them have US or Canadian flags on. Can I run software for US/Canadian machines on my UK machine 

 

Many thanks!

Almost all software runs, but many, perhaps most games run slower than they were designed. In many case the music sounds slower, and the general pace of the game is slower and then it is usually easier to beat. The other way around is also true. Some european games are a bit too fast when played on an US machine.

 

Note that the country flag you see at Atarimania doesn't have much to do with this. The flag only indicates where a specific release was published. Not where the software was originally developed, which is what usually matters.
