Title: Mortal Kombat 2 and Street Fighter II for Genesis Refuse to Dump
Post by: RetrodeLuver on 08/Aug/2014 02:50:38 AM
I've cleaned both 3 times over with alcohol and cotton swabs. The genesis I have currently is in bad condition, so I can't check it on there, but both of these games will not dump properly. Sonic and Aladdin have dumped fine, however.

Managed to use an http://www.ebay.com/itm/like/151375041315?lpid=82 that I had in storage. While not a Genesis, it played MK2 perfectly fine, however Street Fighter 2 (New Challengers or something) only came up as a bright red screen (possible copyright protection not detecting official hardware is my guess).

The Retrode, while it reads their files (although MortalKombatII's rom has the second I as lower case. Idk if that's needed info but it's there) dumps bad ROMS of the games.

Street Fighter II or Super Street Fighter II?
I'm not sure if SSFII is supported by Retrode but I believe it must use a different mapper as the game is 40 megabit (as the EU box is so proud to tell us :D ) while the standard Genesis mapper supports up to 32.

Super apparently.  Is there something different I do?  Maybe mortal kombat is the same.

Nobody have any idea how to do this? If not, it should be added to the incompatibility list as games that are impossible with the Retrode.

I got Mortal Kombat 2 to dump. I have no damn clue how it decided to work in every single other machine I tested it on but not the Retrode 2 until just now, but it works! Yay.

However, I can't seem to get Street Fighter 2 to dump properly and it also refuses to boot on non-official Gensis hardware, so I'm guessing it has to do with it having 40 megabits or whatever. Anybody know how to get around this?

Just for the sake of information, I can confirm that Mortal Kombat II does work off of the Retrode 2.

I have no information about Street Fighter 2. However, it is fortunately one of the ROMs that are sold by Sega on Steam, and for very cheap. There are instructions by various users for getting the ROM out of the Steam folder and using it on any emulator you like, such as Kega Fusion.
