A couple of days ago, I was looking through my games collection and I found a copy of Sonic 1 (MD) that I've had since I was a little kid. It hasn't worked in quite a while, but I always kept it because...well, I don't know why. When it was playable, back when I was around 8 or so, it started to screw up over time. I don't remember specifics but it used to have Illegal Instruction errors frequently. After a while, it started to get closer and closer to the beginning of the game, eventually creeping up to the Title screen, then to the 'SEGA' screen, then finally, nothing at all. The thing I don't get is, is that when I try it in my MD2, it shows the 'Produced by or under License by SEGA Enterprises LTD' screen, but nothing after that. Now...from what I remember, I always thought that for that screen to come up, there has to be valid data in the header of the ROM (feel free to correct me if I'm wrong). So, It has me wondering what's going on in the cartridge. I've been tempted to get it dumped but I don't have my own dumper and getting the components to make my own around here has proved to be difficult. Does anyone have any suggestions as to what could be going wrong, or how I could get it dumped? (If it's even really worth it).
