Hello there!

I've recently managed to firmware-update my "new" bought old 2017 Genesis Flashback.
So internal NAND filled up with some of my favorites... around 90 games.

Just one buggy thing which is annoying me...
All games are there - except "Sonic 3D Blast" and "Sonic & Knuckles" which are shown twice.
I have no idea why and how... they are only once in the .ini.

If I delete both games in the .ini and push the file to the Genesis, the two games as well as their duplicates are removed.

Here the relevant part of the .ini - perhaps someone can help or figure out what I've overlooked :rofl2:

Code:
...

[Sonic the Hedgehog 3]
File=/sdcard/Games/SonicHedgehog3.bin
Platform=Genesis
Genre=Sonic
Description=Sonic the Hedgehog 3 is a 1994 platform game developed and published by Sega. Like previous Sonic games, players traverse side-scrolling levels at high speeds while collecting rings and defeating enemies. They control Sonic and Tails, who attempt to retrieve the Chaos Emeralds to stop the evil Doctor Robotnik from relaunching his space station, the Death Egg, after it crash-lands on a mysterious floating island. Sonic 3 introduces Knuckles the Echidna, the island guardian, who lays traps for Sonic and Tails.

[Sonic 3D Blast]
File=/sdcard/Games/Sonic3DBlast.bin
Platform=Genesis
Genre=Sonic
Description=Sonic 3D Blast, known in Europe and Japan as Sonic 3D: Flickies' Island, is a 1996 platform game in the Sonic the Hedgehog series for the Sega Genesis and Sega Saturn. As Sonic the Hedgehog, the player embarks on a journey to save the Flickies, birds enslaved by Doctor Robotnik. The player must guide Sonic through a series of themed levels to collect Flickies and defeat Robotnik. Though it retains game mechanics from prior Sonic games, Sonic 3D Blast is differentiated by its isometric perspective, with pre-rendered 3D models converted into sprites.

[Sonic & Knuckles]
File=/sdcard/Games/SonicAndKnuckles.bin
Platform=Genesis
Genre=Sonic
Description=Sonic & Knuckles is a 1994 platform video game developed and published by Sega. The sequel to Sonic the Hedgehog 3 (1994), players control Sonic the Hedgehog and Knuckles the Echidna in their quests to save Angel Island; Sonic tries to prevent Doctor Robotnik from relaunching his orbital weapon, the Death Egg, while Knuckles scuffles with Robotnik's minion, EggRobo. Like previous Sonic games, players traverse side-scrolling levels at high speeds while collecting rings and defeating enemies.

[Splatterhouse 3]
File=/sdcard/Games/Splatterhouse3.bin
Platform=Genesis
Genre=Sega
Description=Splatterhouse 3, known in Japan as Splatterhouse Part 3 (stylized as SPLATTERHOUSE • 3) is a horror themed beat'em up video game released by Namco for the Mega Drive/Genesis in 1993. It is the sequel to Splatterhouse 2 and was one of the first games to be given a rating by Sega's own Videogame Rating Council. In North America the game was given an MA-13 rating by the council for its graphic violence and gore. Unlike its predecessors, it was not originally released in Europe. The game was included as an unlockable extra in the 2010 remake, with new artwork replacing the digitized photographs due to legal reasons.

Thanks!

I recently discovered that there must be another file directing the Sonic games originally included with the console to that folder.
If you change the:
"Genre=Sonic" to "#Genre=Sonic" they will show only once.
