Sega Genesis Mini - full map set
« on: August 24, 2019, 01:11:10 PM »
The Sega Genesis Mini comes out in less than a month, loaded with 40 classic Genesis games.  As with the NES Classic Edition and the Super NES Classic Edition, it would be cool to see how far along we've already come to mapping this and how many more could still be mapped.

The Sega Genesis Mini also comes with two more games, Darius and Tetris.  I'm not sure what the story is here (I'm sure I will edit this when I do know) so at the moment I don't know if they can be mapped, but if so, they're listed here too.

Thanks to G.E.R. for letting me know that Alex Kidd In The Enchanted Castle wasn't actually completed, as it was missing the aerial "To The Sky" stage, and then submitting it so that the first game alphabetically is now actually complete!  To think I was wrong in thinking that was complete for 13 years when it actually wasn't, sheesh...

I think that DarkWolf don't ripped this level, because it non-platformed level without objects. It includes only three small platform and enemies with a bombs or 200 JPY.

Another thing surprises me. It seems that SEGA abandoned Sonic 3 Knuckles, because this game don't rerelised in 201x years (along STH-1, STH-2, STH-CD, SA1 and SA2).
May be the reason is remakes of this levels is placed in other games? Only two levels (Carvaval Night and Launght Base) hasn't various remakes in a last games.

Concerning Sonic the Hedgehog 3, there (possibly/most likely) seems to be a long unresolved issue concerning music rights, specifically because of the involvement of Michael Jackson (there are many recent YouTube videos on the subject).

Given how complicated and expensive music rights settlements can be as well as Michael's involvement which is still being denied officially, it is most likely the reason why Sonic 3 & Knuckles hasn't been ported to any modern systems, only emulated. It also explains why the Sonic & Knuckles Collection for PC released in 1997 featured different music for several levels that included samples most likely taken from Jackson (Carnival Night, Launch Base) or where the music is basically an existing unreleased track (Hard Times by The Jetzons for Ice Cap).

Congratulations on the 20000th post, TerraEsperZ!  At least, that's what I assume "msg20000" refers to...

Anyway, The Legend Of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time had a chant in the Fire Temple removed and EarthBound also had some music that was replaced in later versions.  So to Nintendo it was apparently worth replacing the offending/infringing bits.

So while Sega could have included Sonic The Hedgehog 3 with some kind of similar workaround, maybe they just don't think it's worth the trouble to replace the music, or fundamentally don't want to change anything about a classic game.

How can games like Road Rash and Space Harrier be mapped?

I find the Earthworm Jim maps for SNES in the atlas. If I remember it right, the SNES/Genesis maps is similary.
But I see that there are one map for EJ2 is missing. It's a not-platformed level between Villi People and Puppy Love Act 2. I just wanted to play this game a long time and I think that I will rip this level on next week.

Thanks, G.E.R., for submitted full maps of the Genesis versions of Earthworm Jim and its sequel, which I put up last night.  Surprised they haven't been mapped until now, and the first one checks another one off this list.

I guess I didn't mention yet: my brother got me a Sega Genesis Mini this past Christmas - though the only game I made time to play fully so far is Mega Man: The Wily Wars.  It was fun but I didn't think the three new Robot Masters were super great - but I guess they still have a legacy, because I more recently bought Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide (as well as Worlds Unite, its sequel), a comic series involving Mega Man and Sonic's worlds, obviously, and (though I'm sure they showed up in the Mega Man comics earlier,) I like that the three new Robot Masters are collectively referred to as the "Genesis Unit".

I didn't think the three new Robot Masters were super great - but I guess they still have a legacy, because I more recently bought Sonic & Mega Man: Worlds Collide (as well as Worlds Unite, its sequel), a comic series involving Mega Man and Sonic's worlds, obviously, and (though I'm sure they showed up in the Mega Man comics earlier,) I like that the three new Robot Masters are collectively referred to as the "Genesis Unit".

You didn't think that the tree Robot Masters were great, wow I personally think that they are amazing plus the legacy that they have makes it more fun.

G.E.R. has submitted the complete (I think) map for Light Crusader!  Yay!

I never played Light Crusader and don't knew what is this game about, but I saw that this map would be interesting here (for Genesis Mini map set and for two user requests). However, we can see a review of a game on Youtube. This map include all all rooms and locations from the game (I found it by usind a cheat code and level select menu).
