    I know that this has prob been asked a bunch of times, but unlike everyone else, I tried to find it in the old posts, but couldn't...

    Can someone show me a good link to a text file with a simple checklist of every rom out there (including like if it is hacked, intro, regular, trans, etc).

    So like this I guess:

    [ ] Sonic 2

    [ ] Sonic 2 (code hack)

    [ ] Sonic 2 (censor)

    [ ] Sonic 2 (Japan)

    [ ] Sonic 2 (beta)

    ...etc, etc...

    get goodgen (from zophar.net), I think it's able to generate a list of files.

    Um, okay, I would, but I am a Mac user (and #### proud!). So I need a text file, plus I wanted to be able to print it out anyways too...

    .............: STANDARD CODE NOTES ::............

    : :

    : [a] This is simply an alternate version of a :

    : ROM. Many games have been re-released to :

    : fix bugs or even to eliminate Game Genie :

    : codes (Yes, Nintendo hates that device). :

    : ------------------- :

    : A bad dump often occurs with an older :

    : game or a faulty dumper (bad connection). :

    : Another common source of ROMs is a :

    : corrupted upload to a release FTP. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [f] A fixed game has been altered in some way :

    : so that it will run better on a copier :

    : or emulator. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [h] Something in this ROM is not quite as it :

    : should be. Often a hacked ROM simply has :

    : a changed header or has been enabled to :

    : run in different regions. Other times it :

    : could be a release group intro, or just :

    : some kind of cheating or funny hack. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [o] An overdumped ROM image has more data :

    : than is actually in the cart. The extra :

    : information means nothing and is removed :

    : from the true image. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [t] A trainer is special code which executes :

    : before the game is begun. It allows you :

    : to access cheats from a menu. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [!] Verified good dump. Thank God for these! :

    : :

    : **** SNES **** :

    : (BS) These Japanese ROMs were distributed :

    : through a satellite system in Japan :

    : known as the Broadcast Satellaview. :

    : They were transmitted along with a TV :

    : show which was connected to the game in :

    : some way. These games were only playable :

    : during the show, and thus stop after an :

    : hour, and many were timed so that only :

    : certain time periods were playable. :

    : ------------------- :

    : (ST) The Sufami Turbo device allowed two :

    : GameBoy sized carts to be plugged into :

    : the SNES. Certain carts combined into :

    : new games much like the Sonic & Knuckles :

    : lock-on technology by Sega. :

    : ------------------- :

    : (NP) Nintendo Power has been known to release :

    : games only available to its subscribers. :

    : Most of these ROMs are Japanese, as this :

    : practice occured mainly in Japan. :

    : ------------------- :

    : :

    : **** Genesis **** :

    : (1) Carts with this code will run on both :

    : Japanese and Korean machines. :

    : ------------------- :

    : (4) While this code is technically the same :

    : as a (U) code, it is a newer header :

    : format and represents that the cart will :

    : run on USA and Brazil NTSC machines. :

    : ------------------- :

    : (B) This country code indicates that the :

    : cart will run on any non US machine. :

    : ------------------- :

    : [c] This code represents a cart with known :

    : faulty checksum routines. :

    : ------------------- :

    : :

    : **** GameBoy **** :

    : [BF] Bung released a programmable cartridge :

    : compatable with the GameBoy which could :

    : hold any data you wished to play. :

    : However, many games do not function on :

    : Bung v1.0 carts and have to be 'fixed.' :

    : ------------------- :

    : :

    : **** Nintendo **** :

    : PC10 The PlayChoice 10 was an arcade unit :

    : which played exact copies of NES games :

    : in an arcade cabinet. The machines had a :

    : choice of 10 games to choose from and :

    : ran for about 3 minutes on 25 cents. :

    : ------------------- :

    : :

    : VS The Versus system ran on similar hard- :

    : ware to the PC10 machines, but simply :

    : allowed you to play against each other. :

    Holy crap, thank you!

    I went onto GameFaqs, and found a HUGE one, much bigger than I wanted (421 Pages!) so I would not be able to print it out.

    This will do just fine, thank you again.

    You're very welcome ;) Glad I could help you out

    A note on the Genesis roms: There are a few marked [x] meaning they have a bad checksum, yet no known good dumps appear to exist. The ones I know of are:

    Altered Beast (REV 00) (JU) [x].zip

    Bio-Hazard Battle (Aug 1992) (U) [x].zip

    Divine Sealing (JU) [x].zip

    F1 World Championship Edition (94) (U) [x].zip

    F-15 Strike Eagle II (MPS) (JU) [x].zip

    It Came From The Desert (U) [x].zip

    Jelly Boy (JUE) [x].zip

    Might and Magic 3 - Isles of Terror (U) [x].zip

    Nightmare Circus (F) [x].zip

    Ninja Gaiden (JUE) [x].zip

    Patlabor (JU) [x].zip

    Pete Sampras Tennis (JUE) [x].zip

    RBI Baseball 4 (Aug 1991) (UJE) [x].zip

    Resq (JUE) [x].zip

    Slap Fight (JUE) [x].zip

    Star Control (U) [x].zip

    Young Indiana Jones Chronicles (U) [x].zip

    ..there could be more in the list, though.

    It doesn't necessarily mean they won't work, some of them that I've loaded in Gens seem to work fine. It's just likely they'll be more accurately redumped someday.

    Is there anyone working on dumping genesis games now ? I knew a project that redumped a few games but it was down months ago.
