Preserving Nintendo's History
Michael Owen's WLS 2000 (Europe) (Prototype)
- - togemet2

The following is a prototype of Michael Owen’s WLS 2000, developed by Silicon Dreams Studio. In this release, a patched ROM file is included (as well as the unmodified dump as always). Many emulators and flashcarts look at the GUID in the header to guess the region. Setting 0x3E to 0x50 (“P”) automates that, thus making it run without the original hardware.

Differences

  • Appears to be quite different from the retail release.
  • The header does not contain the game’s ID.

Hercules - The Legendary Journeys (USA) (Prototype) (2)
- - togemet2

We’ve preserved another prototype of Hercules: The Legendary Journeys by Titus Software! This build appears to be near final, without any major differences. Something quite interesting about this cartridge is that it contains an overdump of “Ridge Racer 64”, a game developed by Nintendo Software Technology. Unfortunately the overdump matches the retail European release, however, it’s a highly unusual case for there to be a first party developed title within a third party development cartridge. There’s currently no confirmed explanation as to how or why this occurred.

Differences

Turok 3 (Prototype) (V23 Debug)
- - togemet2

We’ve preserved a prototype of Turok 3 by Acclaim! The front of the cartridge lists this build as “V23 Debug”, and the CIC has been converted to PAL. In this release, a patched ROM file is included (as well as the unmodified dump as always). Many emulators and flashcarts look at the GUID in the header to guess the region. Setting 0x3E to 0x50 (“P”) automates that, thus making it run without the original hardware.

Differences

  • Contains various bits of debug information such as the player’s coordinates and current location.
