If you have a game/cartridge from a different region and you get a screen that
says something like: "DEVELOPED FOR USE ONLY WITH ....", or some other screen
that won't let you play the game because it's from the wrong region, then the
Game Genie codes below should solve your problem.

Note that if there is a master code for the game, you may or may not need to
use it. If you get a blank screen and/or the game won't run, you'll need the
master code. The master code bypasses the checksum routine.

course select, record lists, etc.);
- music plays way too fast;
- voices are distorted when listening to them in options screen and don't play
at all during gameplay;

NOTE: There are a couple 50/60 hz compatibility issues, but the game is
100% playable. Here are the details (thanks to goldenband):

- The screen doesn't roll on my CRT.
- The title screen music plays at normal speed.
- The gameplay is somewhat accelerated (I assume by 20%), though not
objectionably so -- it's still completely playable, and might even benefit
from it.
- However, the digitzed sound effects during gameplay are messed up. Some are
missing, some are garbled, and some are slightly distorted.

Section 2: "Semi" Universal Regional Lockout Bypass Codes...


If the game that you want regional bypass codes for isn't listed above, try
the codes below.


If you have a game cartridge from a different region and it won't play on your
console, the codes below MIGHT allow you to bypass the regional lockout. The
codes below will *NOT* work in many cases.

All these codes do is change the country ID letter in the Genesis ROM header,
but not all games use that letter to determine the region.



EAAT-BL1T
"USA" (U). This code will make some non USA cartridges work on a USA Genesis
console. Try this code if you have a US Genesis console.


EAAT-AL1T
"Europe" (E). This code will make some non European cartridges work on a
European Mega Drive console. Try this code if you have a European Mega Drive.


EAAT-AY1T
"Japan" (J). This code will make some non Japanese cartridges work on a
Japanese Mega Drive console. Try this code if you have a Japanese Mega Drive.
Note that on some games, this code will only work on Japan "NTSC" systems, and
not Japan/Hong Kong "PAL/50hz" systems.


- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - -

Here's a partial list of games that the codes above will work on...


-Aah! Harimanada (J) (tested on an emulator)
-Barney's Hide and Seek
-Boogerman
-Castlevania - Bloodlines (tested on real hardware)
-Castlevania - The New Generation (tested on an emulator)
-Cheese Cat-Astrophe Starring Speedy Gonzales
-Daze Before Christmas (tested on real hardware)
-Donald Duck In Maui Mallard
-Dragon - The Bruce Lee Story
-Earthworm Jim
-Earthworm Jim 2
-ECCO - The Tides of Time (tested on real hardware)
-Jurassic Park (tested on an emulator)
-Megaman the Wily Wars (use with master code / see section 1)
-Outrun 2019 (tested on real hardware)
-Sonic 3 (tested on real hardware)
-Sonic Spinball (tested on real hardware)
-Spot Goes to Hollywood
-Stimpy's Invention
-Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (use with master code / section 1)

-X-Men
-Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel (tested on real hardware)

Section 3: 50/60 hz compatibility...


Here's a partial list of European/PAL 50 hz cartridges that WON'T run properly
on a US NTSC 60 hz system (Genesis), even if you use regional bypass codes...

-Story of Thor (E)
-Toejam & Earl in Panic on Funkotron (E)

These games will have music that plays at the wrong speed and/or the screen
will keep rolling. Not very playable.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's a partial list of European/PAL 50 hz cartridges that WILL run properly
on a US NTSC 60 hz system (Genesis), if you use regional bypass codes...

-Daze Before Christmas (E)
-ECCO - The Tides of Time (E)
-Megaman the Wily Wars (E)
-Shining Force II (E)
-Soleil (E)
-Sonic 3 (E)
-Street Fighter II: Special Champion Edition (E)
-Streets of Rage 2 (JE)
-Super Street Fighter II (E)

I would assume that the NTSC/60hz versions of these games (above) would run
properly on a 50 hz system (with a regional bypass code).

-Cool Spot (U) will run properly on 50hz system (if you use the bypass code).
-Pac-Man 2 (U) will run properly on 50hz system (if you use the bypass code).

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

-Virtua Racing (E) Will run on a 60 hz NTSC system (J) but has issues. See
section 1 above for details.

-Worms (E) will run on a 60 hz NTSC Genesis and is 100% playable, but runs
a bit fast, and exhibits some sound problems. See section 1 for details.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------

Here's a list of cartridges that I *THINK* will run properly on either a 50 hz
or 60 hz system if you use regional bypass codes (but I'm not 100% sure)...

-Art of Fighting (U) should run on 50hz system (if you use bypass codes)
-Shinobi 3 (U) should run on 50hz system (if you use bypass codes)

When I say that I'm not 100% sure that these games will work in different
regions, all I mean is that I made the codes for someone else and I know the
regional bypass codes worked, but I can't remember for sure if they said that
the game ran correctly (ie. sometimes when you play a 50hz game on a 60hz
system, you'll have fast or slow music and/or a rolling screen).
