These "French" manuals

are they yours or did you find them?

Because there is a set of scans out there that dropped all the non-French pages. That is to say, they were "European" manuals with most of the pages missing.

Just want to check - I genuinely don't know if Sega started producing single-language manuals for some Mega Drive games -Black Squirrel (talk) 11:30, 9 February 2017 (CST)

I found them...and i think they are genuine french manuals,the pages are corretly numbered...look for example at the back of the manual for Micro Machines 2 Turbo Tournament...--Asagoth (talk) 12:39, 9 February 2017 (CST)
Oh some of them definitely are - localisation was more common towards the mid-90s, I'm just curious about the older games like Dick Tracy and Gain Ground. No worries -Black Squirrel (talk) 13:17, 9 February 2017 (CST)
 It's a common thing in some european countries like France and Germany ... i have more of these to upload...--Asagoth (talk) 13:30, 9 February 2017 (CST)
Some of them are probably fake. Just look at the part numbers on the back covers: [1] [2]. Also, the paragraph spacing is inconsistent and the number of pages should even. - Hivebrain (talk) 19:04, 9 February 2017 (CST)
 I found them on a french site... scanned Mega Drive manuals are not easy to find...and yes i know that some of them are European Multilingual manuals...some are genuine like the World Cup USA 94 manual or Micromachines 2... i have more to upload...--Asagoth (talk) 03:41, 10 February 2017 (CST)

PT MD codes

Looks like you can just add releases to games with md_date_pt= and md_code_pt=. - Hivebrain (talk) 16:32, 16 August 2017 (CDT)

Oh... ok sorry... thank you anyway...--Asagoth (talk) 16:35, 16 August 2017 (CDT)

watch out

File:MD UK TVAdvert CyberRazorCut 2.mp4 - got a duplicate

though I don't blame you for missing it - we've not been very good at organising adverts -Black Squirrel (talk) 16:06, 27 December 2017 (CST)

OK then... i'll pay attention next time...--Asagoth (talk) 16:09, 27 December 2017 (CST)


Might be easier to mirror full issues on Retro CDN - that's where those Cash Box scans probably came from originally (I nabbed most of them from -Black Squirrel (talk) 14:55, 11 November 2018 (CST)

But they have watermarks... there's some exceptions... but ...--Asagoth (talk) 14:59, 11 November 2018 (CST)
I wouldn't worry too much in this case - they're awful scans but it's extremely unlikely we'll get better ones any time soon. - your call -Black Squirrel (talk) 15:09, 11 November 2018 (CST)
Really!? ... Now things just got more fun... you don't even need to ask twice...--Asagoth (talk) 15:16, 11 November 2018 (CST)

SMS/GG screenshots

What emulator are you using? They look darker than they should. - Hivebrain (talk) 12:45, 3 January 2019 (EST)

Kega Fusion...and yes... "Brighten" is marked...--Asagoth (talk) 13:17, 3 January 2019 (EST)
Compare this with this. SMS Power probably uses Meka for screenshots. I usually use Emukon. I think Kega has the wrong colours even for Mega Drive games, so it's not recommended. - Hivebrain (talk) 14:40, 3 January 2019 (EST)
Kega Fusion provides "good enough" screenshots for Mega Drive and Game Gear (when set to "brighten") - I've been using it for years without problems.
But I've been using Gens+ for Master System, because in Kega Fusion it is a bit darker than other emulators (but not for SG-1000 for some reason... dunno).
Replacing all the older ones isn't a massive super duper concern - it's not like the CRT televisions of the day could perfectly replicate colour every time. From what I gather, all the Atari 2600/5200/8-bit screenshots are using made-up palettes. -Black Squirrel (talk) 15:00, 3 January 2019 (EST)
Really?... Please don't get me wrong... but in these "things"... I'm not that "Expert" like you or Hivebrain (and many others arround here)... honestly it amazes me how you guys can distinguish all kinds of differences in these screenshots... I'm blind like a "mole" (no... I never wore glasses) ... I thought Kega was ok since I use it when we made those "Region Coding" pages...--Asagoth (talk) 15:12, 3 January 2019 (EST)
We can fix them all en masse in the future. I'd just need to write a program that adjusts the colour values to whatever they should be, then download every screenshot, run the program, and upload the corrected ones. - Hivebrain (talk) 15:19, 3 January 2019 (EST)

Strana Igr

I saw that you recently put in a few scans of Strana Igr. I have a request for you. I found a page with all scans If you have time you can put them on Retro CDN (mainly from 1998-2000). However, the files are large and I would like to insert it myself, but knowing my internet connection, it will take a very long time.The decision is yours.--Lukdriver14 (talk) 10:51, 28 May 2019 (EDT)

Yes ... I can do it... no problem... I was just helping User:Pecky ... I didn't even knew it was "Strana Igr" ... Pecky told me it was called "Gameland"... I thought it was a different magazine... I only realized it was "Strana Igr" after uploading three magazines... do you want just those?--Asagoth (talk) 13:20, 28 May 2019 (EDT)
I have not seen all of them yet so for now only in these are the information that would be usefull on this site. I think that those from the years 1998-2000 are enough for now. Thanks for help.--Lukdriver14 (talk) 10:09, 29 May 2019 (EDT)
Ok man... as you wish... no problem... ; )...--Asagoth (talk) 10:49, 29 May 2019 (EDT)

LTPHarry3 (talk) 14:00, 21 May 2020 (EDT)

Sorry for the late reply... nope... I never got that error... no offense... I'm just a user like you... I'm not an administrator here... sorry... you better ask our fellows Black Squirrel (Wiki Sysop) or Hivebrain (Administrator) ... they are the "Bosses" here ... --Asagoth (talk) 15:34, 21 May 2020 (EDT)


Hi. Could you put those two magazines on Retro CDN? Thanks
