Incidentally, Non-Volatile Ram is a standard feature in every Atari Jaguar cartridge. Even games with no discernible reason to feature saves have them, and will usually at least save your options configurations until you reset using a similar button chord.

Funnily enough, there isn't enough RAM in the standard Jaguar cartridge to hold a park in Theme Park, so the Jaguar version of Theme Park features no saving at all lol.

Luckily for you, I have the manual.

Micro Machines 2: Turbo Tournament manual said:

Non-Volatile Ram (NVR)
This game features a special memory chip called NVR which keeps information permanently. It should work for up to 100 years, which is long after any battery back-up memory system will have failed. The information shown in the Statistics screen is kept in the NVR. If you ever want to clear this memory you need to hold down the buttons A, B, C and START on the controllers plugged into Control 1 and Control 2, simultaneously, when you are on the main menu screen. (Its [sic] meant to be difficult so that you don't lose your valuable data accidentally!)

I tried to find an english manual online to no avail.
Thank you for the info, really! Everyone had random names and stats when i got the cartridge.

Don't know if these were out there before, but Giant Bomb has recorded some Sega PR VHS tapes that media outlets used to get:


They uploaded most of these quite some time ago but I've never seen them mentioned on here, so just posting them in case people here hadn't seen these yet. Not sure if Giant Bomb will upload stuff like this again for quite some time though, they already only upload VHS tapes once in a while and their video producer just left.
