I apologize for bringing up this subject once again, but we need to be aware that there are still some undumped PAL unlicensed games, particularly HES and Codemasters releases. I left out Gluk Video because all their games (as far as I know) are now dumped.
So, I made a list of the unlicensed games, going by this list ( as well as the profiles for the games that they do have, for the games that I know of that are published by HES and Codemasters. I have checked via my GoodNES set, as well as a fairly recent No-Intro set that I have, if they are dumped or not, and I have gone through all of those games. I also have found information online of a strange Micro Genius 3-in-1 multicart that was supposedly released in Italy as well as Asia, but only the Asian version is dumped. Here it is:


Arctic Adventure: Penguin & Seal - dumped
Chiller - dumped
Death Race - undumped
Duck Maze - dumped
F-15 City War - undumped
Funblaster Pak - dumped
Galactic Crusader - undumped
Impossible Mission II - undumped
International Ultimate League Soccer - unsure, possibly Ultimate League Soccer (AVE) (PAL) [!] in GoodNES? Or is that a different PAL version?
Krazy Kreatures - undumped
Maxi-15 Pack - dumped, but BootlegGamesWiki claims there's another version with Sachen games present that's undumped.
Mindblower Pak - dumped
Pac-Man - undumped
Pipemania - dumped
Pyramid - undumped, but someone claims that the Australian version "used EPROMs from AVE". What does that mean?
R.B.I. Baseball - undumped
Real Player's Pak - dumped
Sidewinder - dumped
Silent Assault - undumped
Solitaire - undumped
Super Sprint - undumped
Tiles of Fate - undumped
Toobin' - undumped
Total Funpak - dumped
Twin Eagle - undumped
Venice Beach Volleyball - undumped


Cosmic Spacehead - dumped
The Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy - dumped, but not present in GoodNES or No-Intro
Fire Hawk - undumped, MrNorbert1994 says he was trying to work on it but hasn't said any news since.
Micro Machines - dumped, but header has wrong mirroring causing graphical glitches and the game to crash at the start of the first race.
MiG 29: Soviet Fighter - undumped
Super Adventure Quests - dumped, but not present in GoodNES or No-Intro
Super Sports Challenge - dumped
The Ultimate Stuntman - undumped

Micro Genius:

3-in-1 Supergun (see BootlegGamesWiki, apparently released in Italy) - undumped

So there you have it. As you can see, the vast majority of HES games are still undumped (of the 26 that I know of, only 10 are dumped), with four remaining Codemasters games and a mysterious Italian multicart which I had never heard of until recently.

Using these lists, there should be a project to dump these remaining games. I would especially like to see ROM images of Toobin', Twin Eagle, Fire Hawk, and The Ultimate Stuntman. Finding these games should be relatively easy, as they can often be found on eBay or some old game collecting sites. The PAL versions of these games should be very easy to distinguish from the US or Asian versions.
I also tried to make a No-Intro account to talk about these games, but they never could verify my account to let me join. So I figured that this would be one of the best places to talk about this. Hopefully progress can be made in the future soon...

I would also like to know if there is anyone in particular willing to dump these missing HES and Codemasters games (and the 3-in-1 Lightgun if possible).

Mega Drive/Genesis / Unlicensed Russian MegaDrive ROMs website?
« on: January 22, 2018, 01:16:05 AM »
So I have recently been working on building a set of MegaDrive ROMs in .BIN format that's as complete as possible (aside from additional prototypes), and unlicensed games as well as pirates of licensed or other unlicensed games are definitely included. I have finished getting through the letter M today, and it didn't take long as expected.
I have most of the Russian unlicensed games. However, I am having trouble finding some of these, as well as finding information about others that I have.
In particular, I had found a website that had a link to most of the unlicensed games, on, and had downloaded all of them, or at least most of them. Unfortunately, the link seems down now, as it just goes to a "404" message that doesn't seem to recognize the website at all.
Additionally, there are some Russian MegaDrive ROMs that I don't have that I know exist and have been dumped:
 - Assassin's Creed: Black Flag
 - Call of Duty: Ghosts
 - LEGO Batman: The Video Game
 - LEGO Pirates of the Caribbean
 - That weird game based on the gummy bears TV show. I don't know what it's called.
 - Terminator 4 (based on Universal Soldier)

And also additionally, there are some games which I am sure are hacks of licensed games, but I can't identity all of them. That website that I had previously gone to said which games were hacks of which, but I can't access it now. Sometimes the header is unchanged, which is a dead giveaway, and sometimes I know from experience from playing the licensed original version, but sometimes they changed the header completely and it's very hard to tell.
In particular, I'm having trouble identifying the following:
 - Hugo Eco
 - Ice Age 3
 - Madagascar (NOT Madagascar 3)
 - Naruto
 - Winx

Could I please have some help finding the missing games, and find out exactly which Russian games are hacks of which? Also, is World of Tanks an original-developed game or a hack of a licensed (or unlicensed) game?

Famicom/NES dumps / Super Adventure Quests ROM?
« on: October 15, 2017, 09:32:37 PM »
So, for those of you who don't know, Super Adventure Quests is basically the European version of what was released in the US as Quattro Adventure. It's a multicart by Codemasters featuring four games: Boomerang Kid, Linus Spacehead, Super Robin Hood, and Treasure Island Dizzy.
Although a ROM of the US version (Quattro Adventure) is very easily available, the European version (Super Adventure Quests) is nearly impossible to find, and was undumped for a very long time. In fact, it's not even included in the latest GoodNES or No-Intro NES set of ROMS. However, according to the following two sources, a ROM dump does exist, and was dumped in August 2014.
This is apparently included in MESS's ROM collection.
Unfortunately, I can't find a recent enough MESS ROM set that contains this ROM (the only ones I can find are from 2013, predating when it was apparently dumped), and I don't understand why so many PAL unlicensed games have been neglected by ROM dumpers and archivers in the past. I tried reviving this forum ( to ask but nobody ever responded.
Can anyone find and upload this ROM, even if it doesn't have a header?

Famicom/NES dumps / Undumped PAL unlicensed games on eBay!
« on: June 02, 2017, 07:24:51 PM »
Hello, everyone,
I'm posting this, because for some reason, I've been obsessed (and frustrated) with this thing lately...
Basically (I found out this a while ago), there are a number of undumped PAL versions of unlicensed games, released in Europe and Australia. None of these are unique games, since there are USA (NTSC) release versions of all of the following games which have long since been dumped, but the PAL versions remain undumped (at least publicly) to this day, as far as I know, and at least two of them have differences in comparison to the USA versions, and some might also be mentioned on the "undumped games" list on BGW.
Quite surprisingly to me, I managed to find almost all of them on eBay almost immediately, which I have included links to, but unfortunately, I currently lack the ability to buy these games, as well as the necessary tools and knowledge to dump them.
They are:
 - (Might actually be dumped, need to check)
So, anyone who actually has the ability to buy (unless you already have one or more of these PAL games) and dump (at least one of) these games, or if you know someone who can, could you please do so? I'm not being demanding or anything, but I, as well as another user from a forum that informed me about this, have been wanting these versions of games to get dumped, especially since this is the region I would prefer them in. I also really don't want this topic to be completely ignored and unanswered like some other topics have been.

Game Boy / Unused drums and strange song found inside Digimon Advenure
« on: November 16, 2015, 10:22:25 PM »
I was bored recently, so I decided I'd use Audacity and use it's "Import Raw Data" feature to look inside GBA ROMS to listen to their samples...again. Then I decided, why not try Digimon Adventure? That game has some sampled drums in I opened it. And I found much more than I expected. Not only did I find many more drum samples than are used in-game, but after it, there was a fully-streamed song.
This especially is interesting, seeing as I don't know why it's there...maybe they intended to use it as a level theme? The theme sounds as if it's a dance-style song. The song lasts dor about 30 seconds, and ends with a fade-out effect. What's even weirder is the fact is that the song isn't in there once, but TWICE. One after another.

Here is a dump of all the sample data in one WAV file:

As well as the individual song itself, complete with its duplicate.

I don't know what sample rate is actually used, but 11025hz sounds about right.
Does anyone know where this song is originally from, and what it might have been intended to use for? The song, as well as all the unused drum samples, are also probably in all the undumped hacked versions, seeing how the music and sound effects are identical.

Pirated Work / Wave to Game Boy
« on: June 02, 2015, 07:21:10 PM »
I would like to download and use Megaman X's wave to GB converter for use in a pirated-style game (, but whenever I click on the link, it redirects me to the homepage. Does anyone else know another place with that zip, or can anyone else who has it upload it somewhere else? Sorry this is not a good place for this post, but I don't know where else to ask. If anyone else has an idea of where I should ask, please tell me.

Mega Drive/Genesis / The REAL origin of SDK 99's SFX
« on: May 13, 2015, 03:55:32 PM »
The Bootleg Games Wikia says that most of Super Donkey Kong '99's sound effects are taken from Streets of Rage.
"In terms of audio, the title screen has a remake of the opening theme from the first DKC while the first two worlds use music from Super Mario All-Stars, and most of the sound effects were taken from Streets of Rage."
However, that's NOT the case. Most of the sound effects are actually, fittingly, taken from the Donkey Kong Country games, and most of the sounds are played back at the wrong sample rate, so they probably used a sample ripping tool such as SNESSOR95 to do it, and didn't change the sample rate. (Yes, that utility existed in 1999.)
For example, the "Hi-ya!" sound for collecting an extra life is a sample from "Funky's Fugue" in the first Donkey Kong Country game. The "Aw!" sound Donkey Kong makes when he dies is the same as the sound for Rambi, one of the crocodile enemies, and King K. Rool taking damage. One of the sounds for killing an enemy is a slightly sped-up version of the annoying sound that barrel guy from Donkey Kong Country 2 makes. The sound effect on the title screen is a slightly sped-up version of the sound the falling enemies from Donkey Kong Country make (the ones on the pirate deck). And more.
The only sound effects that AREN'T taken from DKC games are the ones that aren't sampled, such as collecting bananas or throwing barrels.
It's also worth noting that the factory music seems to be a poorly-done version of the "Life in the Mines" music from Donkey Kong Country, and the last level's music is the boss theme from Super Mario All-Stars.

Super Famicom/SNES / Pajama Sam SNES game???
« on: February 07, 2015, 02:58:07 PM »
I need help identifying an SNES game, and I know it's unlicensed.
A few years ago, probably back in 2012, I had found this weird, but good game where you played as someone in pajamas. I searched for a pajama video game online, and I found "Pajama Sam", a character from a point-and-click series, so that might be who it was.
I played three levels of it.  In the first one, you were above a river and trying to avoid sharks. There were guitars that when collected, you played it and you were invincible, but at the first one, you were  on top of a hippo, and collecting it would cause you to fall into the water, because you moved around while playing it. Then you were chasing a man and a dog in a boat. The second level was in a cave, with bats that would cling onto you. In the second half of the level, you were in a mine cart, avoiding hitting the ceiling, making use of Mode 7 to rotate the screen, and then you were fighting the same man and dog in a train. The third level had you riding a bee, avoiding hummingbirds and parrots, until you were fighting the same man and dog in a helicopter, using Mode 7 again. I never figured out how to beat the boss, so I don't know what happened next.

What I also remembered about the game was that there were weird blank screens before levels. The game had really good music that sounded better than many other games. And when you died, the pajama guy would become an angel.

This was actually a pretty good game, even though it was weird. I lost all of my ROM files that weren't on the server about a year ago. Could you please identify it?

I have been searching for the real, full Aladdin by Super Game, but all I can find is Super Aladdin (only has 4 levels, and Prince of
Persia pictures) and several revisions to look like and share mapper 115, like the full Aladdin. I have really wanted an Aladdin
that's the same as Aladdin II, only much better done.
Can anyone get a link to a ROM of it.....if it has been dumped yet?!   :angry: That's how I feel right now.

Pirate Talk / Can anyone come up with a pirate game editor?
« on: February 10, 2013, 11:42:11 AM »
I just came up with this cool idea. After using Lunar Magic recently, I thought that it would be cool to have a similar editor for the PIRATED NES version of
Super Mario World, both prototype and final :JY: . And then, I thought why just have an editor for Hummer Team's SMW when there could be an editor for
 ALL of Hummer Team's platformers, such as not only SMW, but also Somari  :somari: /Sonic 3D Blast 5/The Hummer/Sonic and Knuckles 5/Sonic the Hedgehog
(even though it's an improvement hack of S3DB5), Earthworm Jim 3, Donkey Kong Country 4/The Jungle Book 2, Aladdin, Tiny Toons Adventures 6, and
more. Rad! Especially hacking EWJ3: I could make it a lot longer! cool: Sorry about the length of this post.  :\
Also, the other idea would be to have a HT fighting game editor, where you could customize the colors, names, stages, stage select, and endings. :thumb:
Hello? Is anyone there? Hello?
Sorry about that "Hello? Is anyone there? Hello?" comment. It's just that nobody's responding this minute.
