    Bought this off a collector. Came sealed in this plain jewell case. Looks identical to the retail disc, apart from something japanese "SAMPLE" around the spindle

    Seller described it as "SEGA Rally 2 (E3 build?) - Regionfree coded Japanese SR2-disc in sealed jewelcase"

    I doubt this will turn out to be anything, most dreamcast sample discs tend to be identical to the retail versions.

    If the disc art is identical down to the serial number, there's a good chance that it's just the retail game.

    edit: nevermind, it's different, CRCs don't match to retail version:

    So it's been dumped, but doesn't work in emulators?... Interesting.

    this is what KLF is about Wiki Sysop
    Maybe you'll get to drive a Lancia Beta instead of a Delta :eng101:

    No, it didn't work on emulators 5 years ago.

    Then again, DC emulators haven't progressed anywhere the last 5 years.

    As someone who owns a Japanese copy of SR2, this looks exactly like the copy I have, minus the text in the inside.
     
  9. Maybe it'd be a good idea to hack up a selfboot version of it to analyze?

    Might have to palm this off to someone with a bit more experience and the necessary tools - my dreamcast is in storage at the moment.
