    I spent a day recently scanning and photographing a whole bunch of 8-bit Sega stuff, and I've started sorting and cropping them for Sega Retro

    Here's the first one
    Thermo Nuclear War Games

    I'll try and get a screenshot or two and maybe some videos this week.

    What are our thoughts on hosting a .wav file of the games code? Breach of copyright?

    I'll try and do one of these every few days or so to keep the updates coming.

    That's amazing, I remember having a few SEGA licenced games for the Coleco ADAM in the same tape format. Keep the updates coming! as someone that have made quite a few articles on the wiki, I totally appreciate your work and collection! Also, some newer stuff like your NAOMI stuff and so would help the wiki a lot when it comes to pictures of covers/backs.

    Yeah, good call, I'll focus on Naomi next. Also got the Mega LD games lined up, but they're hard to scan on an A4 scanner.

    Here's another, I'll flesh it out a bit once I give it a bit of a play

    Heroic Quest

    Question: do you have early sc-3000/sg-1000 carts, and if you do, can you take front/back PCB snapshots of each? For example, something like they did with the Yamato cart here: http://www.nightfallcrew.com/13/01/2011/sega-sc-3000-cartridges/

    I'm doing a collection of sega serials and those early carts have some interesting numbers.

    The problem with that is that the screws to release the case are underneath the labels, so it's not easy to open them up without destroying them. I'll see what I can do, but no promises.

    If these games have never been dumped, really they should be, for historical preservation if nothing else. I'd dump them locally as you're doing these, and once you've got a set we can worry about the legalities & practicalities of distribution.

    Yes from my understanding not much SC-3000 tape stuff has been dumped. I think SC-3000 Survivors might be hiding a few but we certainly don't have much out there in the public domain (most of the SC-3000 screenshots on Sega Retro are actually from floppy disk dumps - cassette software was bundled together and shoved on 3-inch disks later on, but for all we know there might be differences).


    Of course, part of the reason why there's not been any tape dumps is because there wasn't even a proper software list until I brought it all together on Sega Retro (and even then it's still incomplete). That and there's no emulators which can cope (I think MESS can do WAVs but I'm pretty sure no dedicated Sega emulators can)


    btw the scans are lovely

    Yeah SC-3000 Survivors has a few, but like you said, I think the only way you can run them is on actual hardware.

    Not sure where the 'Gold Record Software' comes from, I can't see a reference to it anywhere in the materials.

    Google points me to the Australasian digital heritage software website as the only reference to that developer, and only for this game. hmmmm...

    Also, updated Thermo Nuclear War Games with a screenshots. I got my video grabber working. I'll try and record a video tomorrow and get a few more screenshots.

    Previously unlisted game: Word Block

    Not sure what genre this fall under - probably should play it to confirm. Sounds like it might be like scrabble, so 'Table' it is then.

    Also, video grabber denies me satisfaction, refuses to record signal as it might be copyrighted. Gonna try and desktop record over the top and see if that works.

    Gonna have to re-scan the insert for this one and Word Block, missed the right edge.

    Segaword 3 and Segaword 1

    Should the SF-7000 be treated as a separate system, just like how the Mega CD is treated as a separate system?

    I'll have to be wary that other software is advertised in the manuals, which gives info on other titles I don't have.

    Own page is fine.

    As for the SF-7000 games having their own categories - that could happen if it's needed. I honestly don't know how many SF-7000 games there are out there - my impression was that there wasn't that many, which is why I hadn't bothered

    I think there is more than you'd expect. I vaguely remember an excel spreadsheet from a New Zealand fansite a few year back, probably struggle to find it now.

    There'd at least be as many as the Sega_Mega_CD_32X

    I now remember why I hate text adventure. Any ideas on what the correct parser or action might be to progress?

    Also updated many previous posts with screenshots and titlescreens. Check 'em out.
