    I don't think it's a dupe. I know the rom is almost identical though because the original version had multi 5. But the European release date for this game is tomorrow. (i'll be buying it asap! [​IMG])

    If it has a different CRC, and that different CRC is not because of a bad dump or similar, but because of real differences on the ROMs, then it's a new release, even when the differences aren't noticeable at all, or don't influence the game at all [​IMG]

    i am sorry my friend, but a new release to be considered "proper" should add "something" to a previous release, a change of serial is not enough, a regional change is not enough because the ROM IS THE SAME, so, since the INDEPENDENT release was proper, we don't need another same dump

    Hmm I don't see the point of this really. I hope this doesn't happen again. I can understand pokemon but that's like the third time in ONE month that this has happened.

    I think if the game has another serial it isn't a dupe and should be added as an official release. Look at earlier released roms. For example "Super Mario Advance": There are existing 3 versions. The US and the Euro-Version are the same (both only in English) only the serials are different. Both had been added to the releaselist

    I wish it would just be two kind of release. Japan and USA. Don't know why you need Euro. Always confuse me when Euro come out, I always think its new

    There is a purpose for this that we are all forgetting even if you think its a dupe. That is that you have to have the correct region to connect to the GC Sonic game you have. That will obviously require all regions versions to be released. I am pretty sure on this.

    hey,

    The sonic roms are tricky ones, because even the Japanese release was multilingual. the independent release that came out last week was the usa version, but i'm pretty sure the only thing that has changed is the serial. and probably like exile said, the connectivity.

    @kivan:
    i don't meant super mario advance 3. i mean super mario advance
    This ones:
    002 - Super Mario Advance (Japan) by Independent
    025 - Super Mario Advance (USA) by Eurasia
    050 - Super Mario Advance (Europe) by Cezar
    The US and the european version are both only in english. Only the serial is different.

    yeah i suppose that exile's point of view can be correct...
    maybe usa version of this rom does not work with european cube

    @moneygoesfree: i can assure you that there are many roms that have only a difference of serial and have not been added to the release list, because of the reasons i explained before, mario could be an exception

    I think so too. Some Action Replay roms haven't been added to the releaselist
    and Toukon Retsuden Advance because it's an fixed rom (shouldn't it be redumped?).
