So I just finished playing through my copy of Sonic 1 and noticed that it's REV01, with the scrolling clouds in Green Hill and the underwater ripples in Labyrinth, but the cart itself has buttfaced American Sonic. Did Sega start using the revision in America after "x" date? I thought REV01 was exclusive to the Asian territories.

I'm just talking out of my ass here, but when Sega repackaged Sonic 1 as a Sega Classic maybe they put the updated version in.

Did the Sega Classics version use this style of cart? Because that's what I have. I never got a box with my copy, I bought it from a used video game store, so...

Possibly. It lacks the notable NOT FOR RESALE sticker that was on many older copies of Sonic 1.

I have a "not for resale" sonic1 cart =/ when I got my copy of sonic1 when I was younger, I noticed there was a sticker under the normal europe/uk cart sticker, I scraped it off out of pure curiosity, NFR american sticker art under euro art lol

I wish I can investigate this myself. I have the no resale CIB copy. I spent extra on both box versions of Sonic 3 when younger and couldn't find a difference between 'em. I had to be looking in the wrong spot. LOL

Nice find! Would it be possible for you to take a couple of pics of the inside (front and back of the board), just to check if there's anything different to the more common releases?

I happily would, but I've got no idea what I need to get those weird screws off the back. Does anyone know what kind of tool I need so I can ask around to borrow one?

I've opened up games by melting bic pens and using that as a mold for video game screws. It works pretty well.

Ah, that's a really neat trick, I hadn't thought of that. :)

Alternatively, if you don't have any Bic pens to spare, you can always just bruteforce the cartridge with a hammer, being careful not to whack the board itself. :specialed:

Some later re-released games don't use the SEGA bit at all, but a common screw such as philips or star screw. Don't ask me why. Can you take a pic of the back if the screws don't match the common SEGA bit?

It definitely uses the Sega bit. I'll take pics of the whole shebang when I get it open. I'll probably use the pen trick.

I actually own four copies of Sonic 1 for the Genesis. Two of them have the "Not For Resale" on them and two of them do not. I know that one of them is the Sega Classic version as I have the case for it. If the cartridge you have is the Sega Classic version there is an easy way to identify it by just looking at the Sega Genesis logo. On all my other cartridges the word Genesis is in black letters and has red lines going through it. The Sega Classic version has blue lines instead and the entire logo is also larger than on the other ones. Below is a picture of my Sega Classic version of the Sonic 1 cart.

Also I wonder if it is possible to tell which version of Sonic 1 you have by reading the back of the cartridge and seeing where it was manufactured. My two carts that say "Not For Resale" on them both say they were made in different places. One says Japan and one says Taiwan. For my other two carts the non Sega Classic cart says "Made in Japan" and the Sega Classic one says "Assembled in U.S.A." So yeah I just wanted to post that picture of the Sega Classic version of Sonic 1 and ask if there was anyway to establish which version you have with out having to rip the cart apart.

Easiest way will just be to play it, I guess. Green Hill Zone - no moving clouds, you have rev0. Moving clouds, rev 1.
