VMU archiving project

Post#1 » Thu Jan 10, 2013 1:04 pm

15 years since the birth of our beloved Dreamcast and its little companion, the VMU. Still, there is no complete list/collection of all the officially released VMU content - such as mini games, tools, clocks, etc.. About time to change this! I've already been going through lots of web sources, FAQs, game manuals and game directories. By now, I think I've successfully gathered all the VMU extras released in North America and Europe. Yet, there are still some Japanese releases, that need to be checked properly. I'd really appreciate any help. Someone with some Japanese language skills would be great! Since most of what I can do now, is to vaguely work with google translate ;)

Anyway, here's a list of my achievements so far:

++ MISSING GAMES/ITEMS ++

DLC-only files, that used to be on the following websites:
NFL 2K1 VMUv (Animation): https://web.archive.org/web/20040212090 ... ndex.shtml
World Series Baseball 2K1 VMUv (Animation): http://www.angelfire.com/games4/segafan ... games.html

Character animations, that could have been exchanged for winning cans in "Shenmue Passport":
Here's a listing of the files, that are still missing: viewtopic.php?f=2&t=5276&hilit=vmu+archiving&start=80#p129742

Let's try to complete this first, okay?
So, let me ask again: anyone around here, who could help with translating some Japanese text??

Have you ever checked the TOSEC project? They have a big collection of VMU dumps, if not complete...

I don't understand what you want done re: Japanese language. Do you want me to check those websites in your second post to see if they mention a VMU game? Is that it?

@Raen: I've checked a TOSEC package once. And for the most part it was PD, homebrew, etc. That's not, what I'm aiming at. It's all about officially released titles here.

@dark: Exactly! If you could do that, it would be much more concrete than juggling around with google translate, I guess. Furthermore, there'll be some VMU extras, for which I'll be needing the exact titles. In this regard, take a look at the two screenshots for "Rent A Hero No.1", please.

I was going through the list, but then realized that you want notes on everything re: downloadable content, animations, etc. And not just which games have mini games.

I'll get to this later, but your list of jpn titles does have several with mini games and downloadable content, and some stuff I don't understand what it would be - such as "using the vmu to exchange business cards" - no doubt related to something in the particular drama game that description was for.
