Okay. Found a whole handful stupid bugs in my last quick fix. Here's https://www.retrode.com/files/firmware/Retrode2-v0.18c-alpha3.zip which works fine on my entire library:

World Soccer
Ace of Aces
The Lucky Dime Caper
Castle of Illusion
Action Fighter
Pro Wrestling
Out Run
Kenseiden
Casino Games
California Games

This version also uses a heuristic to detect bogus header information, and automatically overdump titles that are declared to small. Could you please confirm this for your 4-Mega titles? All of mine are 1 or 2 Mega.

Thanks,
Matthias

I've tested all games again, now ALL of them are correctly dumped, even the problematic title "Klax" (that didn't worked in any firmware so far) is now correctly dumped AND working  ;D

For the "4-Mega-Games; her are the results:
-Asterix - autodetection of the ROM size - working - 512KB
-Golden Axe - autodetection of the ROM size - working - 512KB
-Land of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse - autodetection of the ROM size - working - 512KB
-Sonic 2 - autodetection of the ROM size - working - 512KB

And the rest:
-Castle of Illusion starring Mickey Mouse - working - 256KB
-Global Gladiators - working - 256KB
-Klax - autodetection of the ROM size - working - 128KB
-Ninja Gaiden - working - 256KB
-Sonic 1 - working - 256KB
-The Flash - working - 256KB
-The Lucky Dime Caper starring Donald Duck - working - 256KB
-Wimbledon - working - 256KB
-Wonder Boy III: The Dragon's Trap - working - 256KB

PS: "GoodSMS v3.2.0" still "didn't like" them

Thanks for the hard work! I have a question though, is this newest firmware built off of v0.18a or
v0.18b alpha? I thought there were some problems in v0.18b alpha, but I haven't run into any (I've been using v0.18c-alpha). Plug-ins are working great, I appreciate all the work everyone's put into them!

Compatibility list would a good thing to have right about now.
Some times modern video game characters chase older ones. Some times older video game characters just say the wrong thing.

If any of you guys would like to maintain a compatibility list on retrode.org, please let me know. I guess having a repository of overdump settings could be of help for many users.

Strange file names: most likely dirt. Upgrading firmware: please try USB 2.0 port under older Windows or Mac.
