Now if we could just get Hercules dumped...
Glad to see this one's dumped, though.

Game Boy / New Here - My Bootleg Carts
« on: October 02, 2017, 12:27:35 AM »
Interesting...didn't even know there were bootleg carts of GEX. That's just the first Game Boy Color game, right? The funny thing is, I just ordered that game (the real version, not a bootleg) from it's kind of a coincidence that I saw that in your collection.
Also, that Space Invasion and Karate Joe cart. Glad to see you have some appreciation for Rocket Games. Do you know where I can find any of Rocket Games's games? I would like some of their games such as Painter. I don't even think they're on the Bootleg Games Wiki yet...

Game Boy / Do you recognize these?

The second one is a translation of Alone in the Dark: The New Nightmare, and the fourth is a translation of Cannon Fodder. I don't recognize the other games.

Famicom/NES / International Cricket original game
« on: July 28, 2017, 02:19:14 PM »
The funny thing is, there actually is a licensed NES game called International Cricket. It probably isn't related to this one, though.

The PAL version of Firehawk is supposedly different than the US one - according to one source, it doesn't have the Codemasters and Camerica logos on the title screen. Also, you said that there were 2 versions of Toobin', one the original published by Tengen, and a release for the Daou Supercom. However, there's also a seemingly undumped HES Australian version not mentioned (although it could still be identical to the Tengen release, but there's no evidence of that yet).

I have added MLX' items to the list. As for Rocman X' items:
F15 City War (Europe) (Unl)? - F-15 City War is on the list of confirmed games, but I can only find an AVE USA release of the game (aside from the game being included in Maxi-15 Pack).[/quote]Released by Gluk Video, available in the NoIntro set as "F15 City War (Spain) (Gluk Video) (Unl)".
Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy, The (Europe) (En,Fr,De) (Unl)[/quote]Available in NonGoodNES 2016-02-20 set.
Micro Machines (Europe) (Unl)[/quote]Available in GoodNES 3.23b as Micro Machines (E) (Unl).
Arctic Adventure: Penguin and Seal (Australia) (Unl)[/quote]NoIntro names the current dump "Penguin & Seal, The (Asia, Australia) (Unl)", so I assume that they are identical.
Firehawk (Europe) (Unl)
MiG 29 Soviet Fighter (Europe) (Unl)
Pyramid (Australia) (Unl)
Super Adventure Quests (Europe) (Unl)
Toobin' (Europe) (Unl)
Ultimate Stuntman (Europe) (Unl)[/quote]I am not adding them to the list until someone indicates that these actually are different in some way. [/quote]Unfortunately, Micro Machines seems to be a bad dump. It has various graphical glitches at the title screen and player select, and locks up the second the first race begins. Does anyone have a properly dumped version of this?

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 / Pokemon: Mewtwo Strikes Back

Check the Handheld Underground dumps website. It's somewhere on there.

To add to your list, there are some versions (Europe or Australia releases) of unlicensed games that don't seem to be dumped at all. I tried looking for all of these, and I could find NONE of them. My source for some of these versions is from this page:

At the end is a(n incomplete) list of NES games confirmed to be released in Europe and/or Australia, and there are some games I have never been able to find in their Europe ROM form, so they probably are undumped. Also, in the first section, there's a list of (mostly licensed) versions of games (such as Prince of Persia (Spain)) that were undumped the time it was written in 2005. However, almost all of those games have long since been dumped (my GoodNES set has most of them), with at least one exception I know of (or at least it seems to be).

Here it is:
 - Arctic Adventure: Penguin and Seal (Australia) (Unl)
 - Fantastic Adventures of Dizzy, The (Europe) (En,Fr,De) (Unl) - On this page:, it states that there are some slight differences between this standalone cart version and the Aladdin version. It also states a palette change with a specific value of black that would be nearly impossible to notice on a real PAL NES, indicating that a ROM MIGHT exist of this version of the game, although it's possibly private.
 - F15 City War (Europe) (Unl)? - F-15 City War is on the list of confirmed games, but I can only find an AVE USA release of the game (aside from the game being included in Maxi-15 Pack).
 - Firehawk (Europe) (Unl) - Possibly same as USA version? A user named MrNorbert1994 ripped a PAL NSF of the game (although the pitch sounds 2 keys lower than it should), so there might be a ROM of that.
 - Micro Machines (Europe) (Unl) - Possibly same as USA version?
 - MiG 29 Soviet Fighter (Europe) (Unl) - Possibly same as USA version?
 - Pyramid (Australia) (Unl) - I can find USA versions of the game, but not the Australian release (it's probably by HES, since the game was developed by Sachen)
 - Super Adventure Quests (Europe) (Unl) - Confirmed to be the Europe version of Quattro Adventure (USA).
 - Toobin' (Europe) (Unl) - Surprisingly, this is the only Tengen unlicensed game on the list. Possibly same as USA version?
 - Ultimate Stuntman (Europe) (Unl) - Possibly same as USA version?

As I said before, I was unable to find any of these in ROM form, and I hope all of these will get dumped sooner or later. If any of you manage to find a ROM of any of these games, or dump the actual cartridge of these, please tell me.

I find it weird that DVS electronics made a port of a Gamtec game, considering all their other ones are based on Ka Sheng/X-Boy games.

How do you know if this is the "same" audio driver? Most of those numbers in that disassemble window are different, and also, what emulator is that in?

Somebody better find and dump this, and possibly even an English version if it exists! Despite the obviously misspelled name, this could be good! A Sonic game for the Game Boy COLOR (not Advance)...that might be FAR better than all of the other takes on the series (especially 6 for the original Game Boy), and it even features Tails! If there's an English version, I wonder if there's an intro featuring some really detailed text with weird grammar like in many of their other games such as DK5: TJOOTAS. I'm also wondering, is this a port of Advance 2 or an original game, and how accurate is this to the rest of the series? Either one, I'd be interested in checking it out.
By the way, that title screen is kind of weird...

Game Boy / Unused drums and strange song found inside Digimon Advenure
« on: December 18, 2015, 08:03:24 PM »

I managed to identify the song from Digimon Adventure - despite the apparent similarities to Brave Heart, it's actually "Happy Birthday" by Kyoko, which was used as the ending theme for the first Detective Conan movie:

(there was an instrumental version on the CD single, but it looks like they didn't use it, they just repeated a segment from the intro at the point where the vocals would have kicked in)

as for why a Detective Conan song is in a Digimon game.. maybe they hadn't yet found a clean copy of Brave Heart to work with, and this was just in there as a similar-sounding placeholder?[/quote]Thanks so much for the identification, Taizou! I have also found out the frequency the drums play at and the title screen in Digimon Rub(r)y play at in-game: 22050hz. Which means that it plays twice the speed it should!
Here is the game's sample data again, this time at 22050hz. The drums sound right, but the music definitely doesn't.
And here's the isolated version of what the music would have sounded like in-game if it was used. That version of the music gives me a headache...

Figured I'd check Digimon Ruby, out of sheer curiosity, since that game uses PCM drums as well as a PCM title theme. (Even if it does play the latter-- the original Japanese TV series' song "Brave Heart"-- at a much higher sampling rate than it should...)

As if we needed any more proof that Vast Fame helped out with the sound programming on these platforming abominations, the drum samples are exactly the same between the two games, and in the same order. And as I expected, "Brave Heart" takes the place of the tune from Digimon Adventure immediately after the drums-- though in this case, there's only one loop of it, not two.

Come to think of it, the Digimon Adventure tune does kind of have a similar melody to "Brave Heart". Anyone with more knowledge of the series know if that's where it came from?

Edited to add: Oh, yeah, and based on the original recording of "Brave Heart", 11025 Hz is almost certainly the sampling rate they intended to use.[/quote]Wait, now I think I have an idea of what it could have been used for: The title screen! That would explain the lack of music there -  Digimon Ruby does almost the same thing, so maybe it's supposed to play there in that game as well, but due to very poor programming, it either just plays a buzzing sound or nothing at all. And none of the hacks bothered to fix it.
And if it was used, then it would probably play at a rate too high, like you said the theme from Digimon Ruby did. Can you figure out the rate that's used at the title screen in-game? I'd guess 16000hz, judging by my past experiences with this.
This isn't the only time where a pirate game company uses the wrong frequency for samples. Aladdin II for the Genesis seems to have all its sound effect samples recorded from Aladdin for the SNES (which it's based on) at 5200hz, which is already an extremely low quality, if you ask me, but the game plays them at an even worse 4200hz instead, making them all sound noticeably slowed down and lower pitched. There's also an unused "Genie win" sample jingle and a "press start" sample.
