  1. Sega Dreamcast - 3D Box Pack 20170514 View File Credit goes to sercaljr for his set, I added about 79. My motivation for updating his work is, I wanted more 'authentic' looking artwork than the complete set that is floating around, e.g. actual jewel cases instead of generic boxes. However, this set is far from perfect. I didn't bother putting names on the sides of the Japanese games, because the jewel case templates I used are not authentic to begin with. No sense putting lots of work into making something inauthentic pretty. I did manage to find a good template for Euro games, but I only used them for 3 of the games that were missing. I didn't bother fact checking any of the existing games. So, I consider this an improvement if you want a complete set, with more authentic looking art. But I'm hoping someone else will step up and fix the Japanese and remaining Euro games (if any) for region, and we can have a truly authentic set. I spent a day on this, and I'm moving on to my main project. If you're a fan of my other work, yes, Ultimate Sega Dreamcast is coming soon, so you can download this now or get this, and all the other goodies when I release that project.

  2. Version 1.0.0

    I hope there's some Sega Saturn fans out there, because I really put some love into this one. If you are... this is the Sega Saturn setup you want, I promise you. Honestly at this point, just describing what this is, is probably the most exhausting part. If you don't know, you should check out my 'Ultimate Sega Genesis' pack for a better description. For those that *do* know, this is my most thorough one yet. Box backs, 2D box fronts, and 3D box artwork for every single game. I always try to do this if possible. Disc scans for all but 30 games. Full publisher wheels for every single publisher, all taken directly from the Sega Saturn era for authenticity. This pack also contains a custom database, using the *publisher* as the standard, and not the developer. I added 23 new games. Don't worry, they all have artwork and wheels. And, I even included videos for the new games, so you don't have to go hunting down any new media. All the typical genres you're expecting, e.g. Action, Adventure, etc. I'm not going to explain all of the custom wheels this time. If you know how to add 2+2, then it should all be self explanatory. Credit and thanks: Most of the artwork and wheels came from the community. I added some disc scans (located in artwork4), however, we're still missing 30 or so games. I actually resorted to photoshopping ebay images to get a few. That sucks, let me tell you. But...! I made them look decent, anyways. I turned to segaretro.com to fill in blanks, and for the new games I added to the database. It's a great site for researching anything Sega. Many thanks to them for not putting a crappy watermark on their images, like so many other sites of that nature do. All the publisher wheels and custom database wheels were done by me. It was a lot of work. I probably have a solid week in this. My hope is that this inspires someone to do something similar. A brief description of the new games added, and why they were added: 1. Akumajo Dracula X - Gekka no Yasokyoku (Japan) - This is the Japanese version of 'Castlevania - Symphony of the Night, and it has added features (2 new areas, new items, and the ability to play as Maria) that the PS1 version does not. It's worth checking out if you're a fan of the PS1 version. 2. Burning Fest. Limit Over. (Hack) (Japan) (Translated En) - This is a translated version of the hacked version of Asuka 120% Burning Fest Limited. The first of 8 fully playable translated games available on this platform, that were left out of the original database. 3. Daytona USA - CCE Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink version of Daytona USA - Championship Circuit Edition. Considered one of the rarest Sega Saturn games. I think of HyperSpin as a sort of 'digital Museum,' and no museum is complete without the rarest game. A database should not be about including only the most fun games, or leaving out duplicates. A database should be *complete*, and it should be up to the user to decide what to include or exclude. 4. Dragon Force II - Kami Sarishi Daichi ni (Japan) (Translated En) - The 2nd of 8 translations available. The description has the alternate title of 'Dragon Force II - The Godforsaken Land (Japan) (Translated En).' 5. Dungeon Master Nexus (Japan) - A Japanese RPG. It's in Japanese so you won't be able to play it unless you have a guide or can read the language. But, it's a Saturn exclusive. As far as I'm concerned, every Saturn Exclusive should be in the database as a matter of principal. This is gaming history here people. If you don't want unplayable games in your HyperSpin, don't add it. 6. Dungeons & Dragons Collection (Japan) (Disc 1 & 2) - Considered to be one of the best imports, contains 'Tower of Doom' and 'Shadow Over Mystara.' It's playable, even with the language barrier. 7. Final Fight Revenge (Japan) - A totally playable Japanese game. In fact, if you have your system settings set to 'English,' the game is totally in English. This game should have been in the original database for sure. 8. Grandia - Digital Museum (Japan) - Another Japanese RPG that you probably won't be able to play due to the language barrier, but again, a Sega Saturn Exclusive. There's no law that says you have to add every single game in the database. But if you're a completionist, and you love this system and it's history, it belongs in the database. 9. Marvel Super Heroes vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - Totally playable, the language barrier is practically a non issue. 10. Policenauts (Japan) (Translated) (Disc 1-3) - The sequel to Hideo Kojima's first game ever, 'Snatcher.' The 3rd of 8 translations. 11. Sega Rally Championship Plus - Netlink Edition (USA) - Supports the 3D control pad and has some bugfixes, and is considered the 'definitive version.' 12. Segata Sanshirou Shinken Yuugi (Japan) - A collection of mini games. Somewhat playable. A Sega Saturn Exclusive, starring the funny Japanese guy from the Sega Saturn commercials that aired in Japan. 13. Shining Force III - Premium Disc (Japan) (Translated En) - The 4th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 14. Shining Force III - Scenario 1 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 5th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. The USA version was already in the database (Shining Force III (USA) ). I did not include the title following 'scenario 1' as it would make the display name ridiculously long, and wouldn't display properly on your HyperSpin. 15. Shining Force III - Scenario 2 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 6th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. We only got 'Scenario 1' in North America in the form of 'Shining Force III (USA).' 16. Shining Force III - Scenario 3 (Japan) (Translated En) - The 7th of 8 translations, and a Sega Saturn Exclusive. 17. Shinrei Jusatsushi Taromaru (Japan) - A Sega Saturn Exclusive. From Wikipedia: "The game has the distinction of being one of the Sega Saturn's rarest and most difficult games to obtain, mainly due in part to Time Warner Interactive ceasing operations after only 7,500 copies of it were manufactured. eBay auctions for the game can start for as high as $1,000." "Retro Gamer included it on their list of ten essential Saturn imports, described as "a delightfully nutty game that takes elements of Shinobi and Alisa Dragoon and marries them to insanely over-the-top action scenes that involve gigantic frogs and fantastic scaling and rotating effects. " 18. Shoujo Kakumei Utena - Itsuka Kakumei Sareru Monogatari (Japan) (Translated En) (Disc 1 & 2) - The 8th of 8 translations. Seems to be a graphic novel type game. 19. Virtual-On - Cyber Troopers - Netlink Edition (USA) - The Netlink Edition game of the same name. A two player online version. I'm not sure if that means anything to a gamer or not, perhaps an emulator can implement the feature somehow. 20. X-Men vs. Street Fighter (Japan) - The definitive version of my personal favorite in the Capcom 'Vs.' series. Puts the PS1 version to shame (which lacked several of the arcade features). This game is totally playable, language barrier is barely an issue (if at all). A few tips on making the translations work. I'm using the Mednafen emulator. It's the best. The Retroarch Mednafen Saturn core isn't as good, it doesn't have 3D Control Pad support working properly, and the Bios settings come up for every single game. That being said, you're still better off getting all your files in bin/cue format (which is what the RetroArch core uses). If you download a game in any other format, try mounting the disc image to a virtual drive (like Daemon tools lite), then open up ImgBurn, and convert the image to bin/cue. If you apply a translation patch, and the patch changes the format, follow the same process to get the game back to a cue and single bin file format. If a game gives you a 'disc read error' in the emulator itself, try this process also. If Imgburn gives you an error while trying to convert anything, you know you have a bad file.

  5. Official Sega Saturn Database, manufacturer=PUBLISHER View File Does it drive you crazy that the official database uses the 'developer' as the manufacturer data some of the time, and then the publisher other times? Do you like accurate data, free of mistakes and typos? Do you like consistency? Do you like the idea of someone sitting down with the official Sega Saturn database, and spending 2 days doing research, making sure that the manufacturer data reflects not the developer, not the distributor, but the publisher? Well look no further, this is that database. The manufacturer field is the *only* thing changed from the official database. 9 times out of 10, the publisher will match the name on the box. However, there were some oddities with this particular system. For example: 1. Quake has 'id Software' on the box, but was published by Sega. I debated putting 'id Software/Sega' as the manufacturer but decided on Sega. 2. Some games, the publishers didn't bother to put their logos on. (VR Soccer, VR Golf '97). One could easily come to the conclusion that Sega in fact published the games, but did not. 3. Three very well known Capcom games, "Mega Man X3," "Street Fighter - The Movie" and "X-Men - Children of the Atom" were published by Virgin Interactive Entertainment, Acclaim Entertainment Inc., and Acclaim Entertainment Inc., respectively. But it didn't sit well with me, putting those companies in the description, so I solved this little dilemma by putting "Capcom/Virgin Interactive Entertainment", and "Capcom/Acclaim Entertainment, Inc." This is one of those instances where a judgement needed to be made on whether to make things 'black and white.' Capcom published the games originally, and the games are well known Capcom games. So I made it a point to make mention of them in the 'manufacturer' field. I do not mean to step on anyone's toes by releasing this or any other database. Database work is thankless, tedious work, and I'm guessing that most of the official databases were done by just a few people. If I were personally doing 30+ systems, I wouldn't be spending a whole lot of time researching and fact checking. But since this particular system (and the few other databases I've re-done) is important to me, I decided to put in the extra effort. The 'official' HyperSpin artwork standards are very high. So are mine, when it comes to fact checking. I would not be making this available for download if I was not willing to stand behind it, and make the claim that the manufacturer field is ~ 98% accurate, and substantially more accurate than the original that I altered. The original used the developer most of the time, but was not consistent, and would occasionally use the publisher instead. And, it had a lot of errors. So I consider this to be a substantial improvement, and I'm betting you will too, especially if you believe, as I do, that the publisher - the name on the box - should be the standard for the 'manufacturer' data.

  6. Ultimate Sega Genesis View File HyperSpin is not just a way to play games. That is secondary to me. I see it as a sort of 'digital museum.' That is the inspiration behind my 'Ultimate' default themes. You don't just get the best quality images (box arts, cartridge scans, wheels) I could find. You also get a huge number of custom genre databases, showcasing the games in a filtered fashion. Want to check out all of the 'Mega Mouse' games? With this setup, you can. Want to check out some 'Sega Channel' exclusive games? No problem. Want to see every game that Konami published? I've got you covered. I've tried to imagine every common filter for games that you could imagine, and implemented it in a fun way. Because emulation to me is about preservation of our culture. 20 years from now, your kids and your grandkids will be able to look at the work we've done here, and hopefully appreciate our culture as much as you and I do. This is my contribution to the community, I hope you enjoy it. If you like the work that I do, please show your appreciation by clicking the 'like' button or saying a few words. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way, and it keeps me motivated to keep giving you more. What is included: Full (as in every game) wheel art, full cartridge art, full 3D box art, 857/954 2D box backs +2D box fronts (this will display in Rocketlauncher's 'Pause' if you have it configured correctly), an updated and very much improved official database (using the 'publisher' instead of the developer), 116 different publisher wheels/databases (all but 14) including wheel art, several custom genre wheels+art+backgrounds, regular genre wheels+art+backgrounds, a default theme, letters, sounds, pointer, and every game theme I could find (a couple of them fixed+improved). What is not included: Videos, games Instructions: 1.In your HyperSpin\media folder, rename your current 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis' to disable it (in details view, it will autosort to the beginning of the list). Drag and drop the new 'Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the HyperSpin\media folder. You can delete the old '1Sega Genesis' folder later on, if you decide to keep everything included in this pack. 2.In your 'Databases' folder, rename the 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis to disable the original database folder. Drag and drop the 'Databases\Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the 'databases' directory. 3. Copy or move your old Sega Genesis videos (or download new ones from emumovies.com) into the new HyperSpin\media\Sega Genesis\Video folder. 4. Open 'HyperHQ/Wheel Settings' go to your Sega Genesis wheel, and click on the 'wheel' tab. Change the wheel image sizes as follows: Large: 290 Small: 195 This is so that the wheels don't interfere with the Genesis console/cartridges theme, and everything displays properly. The proper settings are pictured below. Credits: Most or all sounds, wheels, letters, themes, 3D box art and cartridge art came from various sources in the community, I take no credit. 2D box fronts and backs I got from the following thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ and credit goes to the respective contributors. The default theme is not mine, however it was tweaked by me, as were the themes for 'ShadowHunt' and Streets of Rage 2 (to make the videos display correctly), and Sonic Spinball (background was not sized properly). My own personal contributions: 1. The database. I went through the official database, and changed the manufacturer field to reflect the publisher of the game, rather than the developer. Most people don't care about some obscure developer that developed one or two games, only to never be heard from again. People remember the name on the box. That is what i wanted displayed in the info above the game name. Other changes include adding "Battle Mania Daiginjou - Trouble Shooter Vintage (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)." This is an alternate trasnlation for "Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)," as the creator of both patches stated that both versions were worth a playthrough for fans of the game. I ditched the one French translation "Surging Aura" and reverted it back to the Japanese game. No sense putting extra effort into patching a game or hunting down a patched game if you still can't understand what is being said. Miracle Piano is not an adventure game. Changed to 'Educational' genre. Body Count is a gun game, not a platformer. I'm concerned about the quality of the genre field in the official database as well, but I already put 2 days into this, and to be frank I have better things to do. Hopefully someone will overhaul it in the future. For now, I consider what I've done a significant improvement over the official database and I'm betting you will too. Last change - if a translated game has an alternate title in English, that was preferred as the 'description' entry. The 'name' entry was left alone so that your videos will still work without having to rename them. 2. Collecting, editing, and creating publisher genre wheel art for 116 different publishers for the Sega Genesis. I combined 'Virgin' and 'Virgin Games,' 'Hi Tech Expressions' and 'Hi Tech Entertainment,' and 'Sportsmaster' and 'Codemasters' (Sportsmaster was a shortlived sub label of Codemasters, and I couldn't find a quality scan, and since it was just a few games, I just combined them). There are only 14 rather obscure publishers that were not included, and they are: C&E, Chuanpu Technology, CYX, Home Data, KABAL_MK (creator of Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy Hack, so not even an actual publisher so much as a hacker), King Tec Information Co., Never Ending Soft Team, Senchi Technology, Shogakukan Production, Sik, Soft Vision, Sportsmaster, Supervision, and Wonder Amusement Studio. I'm only listing them here in case someone wants to contribute the last missing publisher wheels, then this project will be even more complete than it already is. But most (if not all) of those publishers only produced 1 or 2 games. This project was a ton of work. I redrew many (probably 20+) logos. The quality is decent, even with my very average photoshop skills, because I put a lot of work into them. That, and I'm getting better. 3. Custom genre databases, from various sources I've found. They include: American Games - All games with (USA), (World), or (USA, Somothercountry) in them. European Games - All games with Europe in parentheses, that did not also have 'USA' in them. Does contain games with '(Japan, Europe).' Australian Games - The one Australian game (Daze Before Christmas) Brazilian Games - All games with 'Brazil' in parentheses. Chinese Games - All games with 'China' in parentheses. Japanese Games - All games with 'Japan' in parentheses, that did not also contain 'USA' or 'Europe.' Translations - All translated games. Prototypes - All prototypes. Homebrew - All homebrew games in the official list I was able to research and verify. Hacks - All hacks (only 2 games) that were included in the official database. Co-op games - All or most co-op games. Very accurate. Credit goes to: http://segaclassics.blogspot.com/2012/11/genesis-multiplayer-co-op-games.html Best of co-op games - The 'co-op games' database contained 106 games. The source that I used had them rated. This database contains the top 50. Multiplayer - A list of multiplayer games, data was compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' Mega Mouse - All 'Mega Mouse' games from the official list. 6 buttons - A list of games that utilize the 6 button gamepad compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' I considered adding a '3 button' database, but since it would be quite a chore to compile the accurate data necessary for such a task, I decided against it. Sega Channel - A list of 'Sega Channel' exclusives. May have some ommissions, but reasonably accurate, as it's a short list. Themes: All games with themes included (everything that I could find). Action, Adventure, Beat'em-up, etc. - Your typical genres. It should be noted that I personally found a few errors without even trying. This database needs an overhaul, but it most likely won't be from me. That about covers it. If you find any errors, no matter how small, please share them here so that I can fix them.

This is my contribution to the community, I hope you enjoy it. If you like the work that I do, please show your appreciation by clicking the 'like' button or saying a few words. A little bit of appreciation goes a long way, and it keeps me motivated to keep giving you more. What is included: Full (as in every game) wheel art, full cartridge art, full 3D box art, 857/954 2D box backs +2D box fronts (this will display in Rocketlauncher's 'Pause' if you have it configured correctly), an updated and very much improved official database (using the 'publisher' instead of the developer), 116 different publisher wheels/databases (all but 14) including wheel art, several custom genre wheels+art+backgrounds, regular genre wheels+art+backgrounds, a default theme, letters, sounds, pointer, and every game theme I could find (a couple of them fixed+improved). What is not included: Videos, games Instructions: 1.In your HyperSpin\media folder, rename your current 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis' to disable it (in details view, it will autosort to the beginning of the list). Drag and drop the new 'Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the HyperSpin\media folder. You can delete the old '1Sega Genesis' folder later on, if you decide to keep everything included in this pack. 2.In your 'Databases' folder, rename the 'Sega Genesis' folder to '1Sega Genesis to disable the original database folder. Drag and drop the 'Databases\Sega Genesis' folder that is included into the 'databases' directory. 3. Copy or move your old Sega Genesis videos (or download new ones from emumovies.com) into the new HyperSpin\media\Sega Genesis\Video folder. 4. Open 'HyperHQ/Wheel Settings' go to your Sega Genesis wheel, and click on the 'wheel' tab. Change the wheel image sizes as follows: Large: 290 Small: 195 This is so that the wheels don't interfere with the Genesis console/cartridges theme, and everything displays properly. The proper settings are pictured below. Credits: Most or all sounds, wheels, letters, themes, 3D box art and cartridge art came from various sources in the community, I take no credit. 2D box fronts and backs I got from the following thread: https://gbatemp.net/threads/cover-collections-for-emulators-with-cover-support.324714/ and credit goes to the respective contributors. The default theme is not mine, however it was tweaked by me, as were the themes for 'ShadowHunt' and Streets of Rage 2 (to make the videos display correctly), and Sonic Spinball (background was not sized properly). My own personal contributions: 1. The database. I went through the official database, and changed the manufacturer field to reflect the publisher of the game, rather than the developer. Most people don't care about some obscure developer that developed one or two games, only to never be heard from again. People remember the name on the box. That is what i wanted displayed in the info above the game name. Other changes include adding "Battle Mania Daiginjou - Trouble Shooter Vintage (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)." This is an alternate trasnlation for "Battle Mania Daiginjou (Japan, Korea) (Translated En)," as the creator of both patches stated that both versions were worth a playthrough for fans of the game. I ditched the one French translation "Surging Aura" and reverted it back to the Japanese game. No sense putting extra effort into patching a game or hunting down a patched game if you still can't understand what is being said. Miracle Piano is not an adventure game. Changed to 'Educational' genre. Body Count is a gun game, not a platformer. I'm concerned about the quality of the genre field in the official database as well, but I already put 2 days into this, and to be frank I have better things to do. Hopefully someone will overhaul it in the future. For now, I consider what I've done a significant improvement over the official database and I'm betting you will too. Last change - if a translated game has an alternate title in English, that was preferred as the 'description' entry. The 'name' entry was left alone so that your videos will still work without having to rename them. 2. Collecting, editing, and creating publisher genre wheel art for 116 different publishers for the Sega Genesis. I combined 'Virgin' and 'Virgin Games,' 'Hi Tech Expressions' and 'Hi Tech Entertainment,' and 'Sportsmaster' and 'Codemasters' (Sportsmaster was a shortlived sub label of Codemasters, and I couldn't find a quality scan, and since it was just a few games, I just combined them). There are only 14 rather obscure publishers that were not included, and they are: C&E, Chuanpu Technology, CYX, Home Data, KABAL_MK (creator of Ultimate Mortal Kombat Trilogy Hack, so not even an actual publisher so much as a hacker), King Tec Information Co., Never Ending Soft Team, Senchi Technology, Shogakukan Production, Sik, Soft Vision, Sportsmaster, Supervision, and Wonder Amusement Studio. I'm only listing them here in case someone wants to contribute the last missing publisher wheels, then this project will be even more complete than it already is. But most (if not all) of those publishers only produced 1 or 2 games. This project was a ton of work. I redrew many (probably 20+) logos. The quality is decent, even with my very average photoshop skills, because I put a lot of work into them. That, and I'm getting better. 3. Custom genre databases, from various sources I've found. They include: American Games - All games with (USA), (World), or (USA, Somothercountry) in them. European Games - All games with Europe in parentheses, that did not also have 'USA' in them. Does contain games with '(Japan, Europe).' Australian Games - The one Australian game (Daze Before Christmas) Brazilian Games - All games with 'Brazil' in parentheses. Chinese Games - All games with 'China' in parentheses. Japanese Games - All games with 'Japan' in parentheses, that did not also contain 'USA' or 'Europe.' Translations - All translated games. Prototypes - All prototypes. Homebrew - All homebrew games in the official list I was able to research and verify. Hacks - All hacks (only 2 games) that were included in the official database. Co-op games - All or most co-op games. Very accurate. Credit goes to: http://segaclassics.blogspot.com/2012/11/genesis-multiplayer-co-op-games.html Best of co-op games - The 'co-op games' database contained 106 games. The source that I used had them rated. This database contains the top 50. Multiplayer - A list of multiplayer games, data was compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' Mega Mouse - All 'Mega Mouse' games from the official list. 6 buttons - A list of games that utilize the 6 button gamepad compiled from multiple sources. Not verified. May contain errors or omissions. Should be considered a guide, not 'the last word.' I considered adding a '3 button' database, but since it would be quite a chore to compile the accurate data necessary for such a task, I decided against it. Sega Channel - A list of 'Sega Channel' exclusives. May have some ommissions, but reasonably accurate, as it's a short list. Themes: All games with themes included (everything that I could find). Action, Adventure, Beat'em-up, etc. - Your typical genres. It should be noted that I personally found a few errors without even trying. This database needs an overhaul, but it most likely won't be from me. That about covers it. If you find any errors, no matter how small, please share them here so that I can fix them.
  8. Official Sega Genesis Database, manufacturer=PUBLISHER View File You're scrolling through your awesome Sega Genesis collection in HyperSpin you spent many an hour scouring the internet to amass, and you stop on a game. Which one is it? Why, it's Spider-Man (World) (Sega). The box art that you downloaded clearly says "Sega." But the description above the game reads "Recreational Brainware." Recreational... Brainware?!? Who.... tf is that? So you scroll through some more games. John Madden Football. Everyone knows that's an EA Game... right? WRONG. The description says Park Place Productions. At that moment, did you feel like throwing a shoe at your TV screen? Did you get the urge to go through and fix the database to by hand, and fix every single entry, so that the name in the box is the name that appears in the description? No... that was just me, you say? Well, I did in fact change the database by hand, and it sucked. You're welcome. This database is not as accurate as my 'Gamecube' database thread that I started. I resorted to using the Wikipedia database, (because I didn't want to spend 3 days on this like I did with GC) which actually turned out to be decent. I randomly checked games, and occasionally found mistakes. But what I have here is far more accurate than what I started with. To be quite frank, the original didn't even get the developer right half the time. Putting together a database is a lot of work. Props to whoever made the original Official Sega Genesis database. It must have taken days, and any mistakes made are certainly forgivable. I certainly do not claim that what I am offering here is without error. But at the same time, I feel overwhelmingly compelled to express my opinion that nobody cares about the developer. The name on the box is what people remember. The *publisher* should be the standard for the manufacturer field in the database. If you agree, hit that like button after you're done downloading it. If I get enough support, I'll share more of them. Submitter SupraKarma Submitted 04/27/2017 Category Databases (XML) Credits

  11. Sega Mega Drive - Akumajou Dracula - Vampire Killer (Japan)-klopjero View File Sega Mega Drive - Akumajou Dracula - Vampire Killer (Japan)-klopjero Castlevania: Bloodlines, known as Vampire Killer[a] in Japan and as Castlevania: The New Generation in PAL regions, is a platform game developed and published by Konami for the Sega Genesis, released worldwide in March 1994. It was the only Castlevania video game released on the Genesis. The game's storyline concerns a legendary vampire named Elizabeth Bartley who is Dracula's niece, suddenly appearing in the 20th century. Plotting a sacrificial war in order to bring her uncle back to life, she orchestrates the beginning of World War I. Quincy Morris' son, John, and his best friend Eric Lecarde, vow to take up the fight against evil. Together they manage to prevent Dracula's full resurrection. Unlike most Castlevania games, Bloodlines was the first game in the series that does not take place exclusively in Dracula's castle, with most levels taking place throughout Europe. Regional Differences Title Screen Japan US Europe The Japanese title, strangely, is not some variant on Akumajou Dracula but instead simply Vampire Killer. The censorship of blood in the European version extended to the title, and not only graphically, as the game is called Castlevania: The New Generation. Characters Japan US/Europe Eric Lecarde's face was significantly less masculine looking in the Japanese version's introduction and Expert ending. US/Europe Japan John Morris is called Johnny Morris in the Japanese version. Passwords The Japanese version handles passwords differently - instead of showing passwords in between levels, in the Japanese version passwords are shown after the End option is chosen on the game over screen. Blood Blood has been removed from the European version in various ways: US/Japan Europe The dead zombie outside of Castle Dracula, which some crows are feeding on, was removed in the European version. US/Japan Europe The zombies were changed from pink with red blood to a greenish blue with green blood in the European version. US/Japan Europe Hung corpses and blood dripping from the platforms of Stage 1 and Stage 6-2 were removed entirely in the European version as well. US/Japan Europe Due to the aforementioned objection to blood itself (again!), the blood fountain in Stage 5-1 was changed to a boring regular fountain when walking past it. The Blood Skeleton surprisingly survived the censorship. US/Japan Europe Eric no longer get impaled when he dies in the European version.
