About This File
I got sidetracked from 'Ultimate Sega Dreamcast,' and this is the result. Originally I just intended to get the wheel looking 'respectable,' but then my OCD took over, and well, you know the rest.
I hesitated to call this one of my 'Ultimate' setups, because there aren't many games, nor is there a lot of media associated with this system, but then, what else would I call it. So maybe I should define what an 'Ultimate' setup is. An ultimate pack is the best available media, database, and whatever else I could think to include for a system. I take the best stuff I can find from the community, organize it in my own way, then add my own content to spruce it up some more.
Aorin already did up a set of wheels. They're title shots mostly. I prefer plain text for any Japanese system (so that I can easily read the titles), but I've included his set, because I realize some people prefer artwork. This system doesn't have any box art, because the games were broadcast via satellite.
Ninja2bceen did a nice pointer.
Sounds and letters I grabbed from the community.
I already had most of the publisher wheels, so I went ahead and did up the rest. Full publisher wheels, and genres/backgrounds.
I made modest changes to the database. Usually, I prefer to use the publisher, but in this particular instance, I left things alone for the most part. The publisher would have been Nintendo in most cases.
Nippon Computer Systems Corp. became NCS Corp. Panel de Pon - Event '98 (Japan) had 'Intelligent Systems' as the manufacturer, but there is no mention of them anywhere in game - Nintendo takes credit. So I changed it to Nintendo. I did a little bit of research, Intelligent Systems was a 2nd party developer for Nintendo. So either way, it isn't inaccurate to just use Nintendo.
Golf Daisuki! O.B. Club (Japan) has a translated patch availabe. I changed the name of the entry to reflect that, and the name in the description is the English name "I Love Golf! (Japan) (Translated En)." The crc was changed to reflect the crc of the file after it is patched, which probably won't do you much good lol. When you go to look for this game, it more than likely won't be the right one. The crc you need is BA9C98D3. I found the forum of the creators of the patch, there's a thread there where someone was complaining about not being able to find the right ROM with the right crc, and they released a patch to convert the ROM to the correct one. Rather than make you go through all that, and since it is simply a patch with no legal nefariousness involved, I've included it here (golfromfix.rar). And also, the IPS patch to translate the game. Apply the golfromfix first, then the "I Love Golf! - Out Of Bounds Club v1.00 IPS.zip" second.
I added alternate versions of "BS - Legend of Zelda." They are as follows, with a brief description:
1. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Third Quest (Japan) (Translated En) - Removes the time limit that the normal game has, so that it plays just like a normal Zelda game. Beginners should start with this one.
2. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Link Version (Japan) (Translated En) - Play as Link, instead of the dufus with the baseball cap.
3. BS Legend of Zelda, The - Mottzilla Project (Japan) (Translated En) - Has map 1 and map 2 built in.
Since you're going to have a hard time finding videos for this system, I went ahead and included what I have, and screenshots for what I didn't, so that your wheel isn't completely bare.
If anyone knows a good source of videos for this system, please do share.
If there's any mistakes, please message me so I can fix them. If you feel you have a contribution to improve this project, I welcome any support.
