    It's wiki time. There's no need to be afraid.
    Thumbnail generation is borked - I flagged it up yesterday and it'll be fixed at some point

    I thought you guys had this fixed when I saw my SK-III scans fixed, but I'm still having issues. Is there something I can do manually to sort it out?

    Welp, this.
    ...well, that's kind of stupid.

    It basically says that the demo screen before the game starts may move differently than the game itself, but there's nothing wrong with the game.

    That's weird. Does it say anywhere that it's from Q*Bert - pretty sure it is, just wanted to confirm.

    And thanks for the jpeg to pdf program, works a treat (apart from not working in wine).

    Mr Eggfan are Japanese and Australian (and I'm guessing European) manuals all identical (provided it's a game released overseas)

    I think that just applies to the Japanese launch games, they tend to have both Japanese and English on the box (presumably instructions too). Most (all?) were re-released in Japan with Japanese only box and instructions. The games released in Japan later in 1983 and onwards tend to have only Japanese box/instructions. The European ones just English (or Italian, or French). The later European releases then have four language boxes (English, French, Italian, German).

    Here's a chronological list of all Western releases by Japanese release date. The letters in brackets indicate Japanese box languages, followed by the Western box languages). Note, as some Japanese games had various re-releases then there may be earlier variants with different languages that have yet to be scanned.

    1983/07/15
    G-1001 Borderline (?/E)
    G-1002 Safari Hunting (?/E)
    G-1003 N-Sub (JE/E)
    G-1005 Champion Golf (J/E)
    G-1007 Congo Bongo (JE/E)
    G-1008 Yamato (JE/E)
    G-1009 Champion Tennis (JE/E)
    G-1010 Star Jacker (JE/E)
    G-1011 Champion Baseball (J/?)
    G-1012 Sindbad Mystery (?/E)

    1983/??
    G-1014 Golgo 13 (?/?)
    G-1017 Monaco GP (J/E)
    G-1018 SEGA Flipper (?/E)
    G-1019 Pop Flamer (J/E)
    G-1020 Pacar (?/E)
    G-1028 Exerion (J/E)

    1984
    G-1031 Lode Runner (J/EFIG)
    G-1032 Safari Race (J/EFIG)

    They don't make it easy to categorise

    For the record I can confirm an Italian manual for Sega Flipper. There's probably some patterns here - I'd hazard a guess and say that first set of 1983 releases are the only ones to get New Zealand makeovers too.

    New Zealand did get all of them except for Golgo 13 and Champion Soccer which seem to have only been released in France. Thanks to Sega Computer magazine we have somewhat of a New Zealand release schedule;

    1983/11
    G-1002 Safari Hunting (Grandstand Box)
    G-1003 N-Sub (Grandstand Box)
    G-1008 Yamato (Grandstand Box)
    G-1009 Champion Tennis (Grandstand Box)
    G-1010 Star Jacker (Grandstand Box)

    Pre 1984/06
    G-1001 Borderline (Grandstand Box)
    G-1007 Congo Bongo (Grandstand Box)
    G-1011 Champion Baseball (Grandstand Box)
    G-1012 Sindbad Mystery (Grandstand Box)
    G-1017 Monaco GP (Grandstand Box)
    G-1018 SEGA Flipper (Grandstand Box)
    G-1019 Pop Flamer (Grandstand Box)
    G-1020 Pacar (Grandstand Box)

    1984/06
    G-1005 Champion Golf (?)
    G-1028 Exerion (Euro Box / ?)

    1985/01
    G-1031 Lode Runner (Euro Box / Grandstand Cart)
    G-1032 Safari Race (?)
    G-1033 Champion Boxing (?)

    1985/02
    G-1015 Orguss (?)
    G-1036 Flicky (? / Grandstand Cart)

    So it seems that they switched to Euro boxes mid-1984, but kept Grandstand carts. The Sega Flipper box is interesting;

    The four language boxes also had four language manuals. Also some English only versions of Japanese/English manuals.
