Help Retro: Scan Your US/Canadian Genesis Cartridges

Most people are at least vaguely aware  that Sonic Retro also runs a companion website, Sega Retro, to document all Sega-related history that isn’t explicitly Sonic-y in nature. As part of that documentation, there’s a lot of very basic tasks that haven’t been done that we’re trying to accomplish for the basic good of video game research.

One of those is to get pictures of every single video game made for a Sega system. This seems like it should be an easy task–after all,somebody must have done this before–but it turns out that it takes a lot more time and effort than anyone would have realized. And no, no one else has bothered to try to get good photos of everything.

This is where you come in, dear reader! Each week, we’re going to highlight various items we need scans donated for in hopes that we can build the world’s biggest database of Sega knowledge together. One region, one system, one thing, and a list of what we need. 😉

How can I help?

We ask that volunteers go through their collections of Sega games and see if they have what we are looking for. This week, we’re focusing on Sega Genesis cartridges from the US or Canada. If you live in Europe or Brazil or South Korea or Japan, don’t worry! We’ll be highlighting things we need from those regions, too–we just don’t want to overwhelm people. A cartridge that is a good candidate to scan will be free of any stickers (such as from a rental place or a price tag) with a clear label that has no scratches or tears on it. This picture of Asterix and the Great Rescue is a great example of a cart scan. If you’re new to scanning, check out our guides on Sega Retro, but if you’re used to scanning, know we prefer 600DPI images digitally downsampled to 300DPI using Photoshop or another high-quality image editor. You can upload the image yourself on Sega Retro if you’re comfortable, or else post in the Sega Retro forum or leave a comment wherever you read this story (front page, Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Pinterest.)  You may also e-mail us scans at [email protected]

So, without further ado, the list of Sega Genesis cartridges we currently need scans of!

    Hey I have the US version of Ballz 3D, but I was wondering, since the guide doesn’t say how, how would I scan my cartridge?

    • Reply

      If you have a scanner, you can just put the cartridge there. If you don’t have a scanner, not too sure then. There are place that will scan things for you, but that’s up to if you want to spend the tiny bit of money to do that.

  • Reply

    I have a scanner as well as a library of cartridges. Definitely will look into this.

    Don’t need Australian boxes/carts? Whole heap in my back room if needed!

    • Reply

      We need a ton of thing–I’m just trying to break things down by region as to not be like OK HERE’S THE LIST OF 5,800 OR SO ITEMS WE NEED at one time.

  • Reply

    Dunno how well it’ll go but I can see if I have some of these.

  • Reply

    Do you also need the boxes and manuals at this time? I’ll be more than happy to scan my US copy of Rings of Power as well as the box and manual for it. I just happen to have it lying in an accessible box nearby so it’s not much trouble.

    • Reply

      Boxes and manuals are always dandy if readily available!

    ” If you’re new to scanning, check out our guides on Sega Retro,…”

    Speaking of that scanniong guide, an somebody PLEASE modify the guide on IDing recreations v. originals? With the access of tools like GIMP and Photoshop being greater now than in previous years, and some people giving a damn about detail, it is hardly fair to say that ALL recreations will be that easy to spot.

  • Reply

    I got a few of these. I’ll see what I can do later 🙂

  • Reply

    I have the SegaCD versions of some of these…

    • Reply

      May as well scan them up, as we may be needing some in a future post.

  • Reply

    I ‘m not sure if I just have NHL 94 which isn’t listed or if I have NHL Hockey 94 which is, I’ll check. I definitely have Paperboy, which I can scan. I also have a Stargate game, but I don’t know whether its some Stargate blah blah or just plain Stargate. Anyways, definitely expect a Paperboy scan from me 🙂

  • Reply

    Sent scans of X-Men, Ren and Stimpy, Ahh Real Monsters, and Beavis and Butthead.

  • Reply

    Got PGA tour II. Love that game. will upload ASAP

  • Reply

    Would finding existing scans on the internet be frowned upon?

    • Reply

      Generally, yes. We have had people complain at us for doing that, even though a user said it was their submission. It’s easier to just not deal with that.

  • Reply

    Also can I post the scan here? I went to log in and it’s slow

  • Reply

    I think I can get Ahhh Real Monsters and RBI Baseball ’93 scans.

  • Reply

    Wait, there’s a Rocky and Bullwinkle game for the Genesis? MUST. GET. ROM.

  • Reply

    I can contribute The Berenstain Bears’ Camping Adventure and Marko’s Magic Football

    Here’s a scan for “The Ren & Stimpy Show Presents Stimpy’s Invention”.

    DON’T POST PGA TOUR GOLF II YET! I am doing it. Dad will hook up my scanner in a few. I promise.

  • Reply

    Just emailed the scans for the cartridge and front and back box art for Rings of Power. The manual will take a bit longer as it’s around 112 pages long. Unfortunately, I don’t have the world map that came with the game.

    I have that the complete Bart’s Nightmare, The Pagemaster (I think I have the whole set, but the box and manual wouldn’t be in good condition), and Tom and Jerry game. Would you still be looking for them?
