    What do b2, c, f1, h1, h1 + c, h2 other rom titles mean? SSF2

    Specially [c]. If somebody can make a hack that let's Sega CD music play while I run ssf2 cart in Genesis with volume low, I would like to know what rom is the best to d/l. Yes I hear [w][!] are best what do you go to when that can't be found and what do the others mean [b] = beta but [c !], [h1c] is newest or ?

    Once again, thanks Kam. I always thought [a] meant alpha, almost done and [b] meant beta, below alpha level. The reason I ask is because I can't seem to find a [w][!] or [u][!] rom of ssf2 so what is the next best thing iyo ?

    You need to search harder my good man . [u][!] or (4)[!] is what you want. Some site don't specify which one it is (other than the country), you can assume it's a [!] in that case. You'll find a lot with [c], some games had to be cracked to run on emulators, it's a shame but those dumps are common.

    Okay thanks Kam.

    Edit. This is like what the experience I'm trying to capture on MD/SCD (song + similar cart).

    fyi it seems the current GoodGen collection has the following roms labeled as perfect dumps.

    Super Street Fighter II - The New Challengers (U) [c][!]
    Super Street Fighter II - The New Challengers (E) [c][!]
    Super Street Fighter II - The New Challengers (J) [c][!]


    No uncracked versions seem to be available, guess they aren't usable if they aren't cracked?

    A LOT of games marked as [c] for "bad checksum" actually aren't bad at all, they just use a different method of calculating the checksum than the "standard" method Sega tried to get folks to use.

    If it has a [c] on a Genesis game next to a [!], it means that the game is a good ROM but uses a different checksum system like Dynamite Headdy. In fact if you "fix" this checksum it causes the game to fail. For alphas/betas/prototypes, they are usually listed on the filename and don't use a code.

    Oh and there are two main different groups of dumps for cartridges, there's the GoodTools that uses the [letter of region] [!] system [they used to also use JUE and numbers/letters at one point for later games] and there's the No-Intro system that displays just the game and the region of the ROM. In most cases, a GoodTools dump and a No-Intro dump are exactly the same (usually with a different filename, GT uses .bin [but did also use .smd years ago as well] while NI uses .md) but there are a few that are different. NI also try to avoid hacked, cracked or bad dumps but they are usually updated if a game turned out to be a bad dump. For a while No-Intro took over from GoodTools since they didn't update with the new ROM dumps or the redumps while No-Intro did but I think GoodTools has recently updated. There's also TOSEC as well but that is more known for home computers and certain disc based systems and their naming system is like a hybrid of GT and NI, plus for cartridge based systems it isn't as well known.
