Undumped special edition of Medarot for GBA?

Post by Collecter » 19 Aug 2018 16:30

Anybody knows if the Comic BomBom edition of the first gba medarot game was dumped or if it matches the retail Japanese rom?
According to Wikipedia the edition from that comic was special but there's no info if the special edition had any extra content.

Afair it's the other way round. We got the Bom Bom version, but miss a dump of the retail release. Unfortunately it's pretty expensive.

Do you know the four-character serial for the normal release?

Damn!
Maybe the Bom Bom edition tag should be added to the roms to avoid any future confusion?
There's also the chance the retail version is the same rom

The standard version has been dumped already and it contains a new 1.1 edition with crc 3F15FEAA. Unfortunately it's hoarded. The serial is the same, but the ROM-ID and the stamp on the cart differ.

There's a Wii U VC release of Medarot Ni Core - Kabuto, which is probably the missing revision 1. Unfortunately the title key is not known yet.

Nintendo's master AGB-document lists two versions.

Serial - Rev - ROM issue date
A5KJ - 0 - 13.11.2002
A5KJ - 1 - 11.03.2003

Quite unfortunate. Original GB Medarot seemed like one of those games that was so common it was in nearly every big Japanese cart lot on ebay. :D

Do you know who the dumper is and why is he/she hoarding such a gem :(

Even if its hoarded, the dump details should still be added to the database.
