If you tilt the cartridge back so light shines on it, you can see 3 characters stamped behind the label.
For Pokemon Sapphire, it's got 08A

It's usually on the right hand side of the label about mid way up.

Retro Chat / Do American GBA Games Have Stamped Characters Behind The Lab
« on: November 25, 2014, 17:35:53 PM »
Hi All,

Today I purchased a GBA game (Grand Theft Auto Advance) from a reputable online marketplace. However, when it arrived, It was the American edition and had the ESRB logo on it, rather than the UK edition which looks completely different on the label front.

Not too much of an issue, but when I done the usual check of the label it didn't have the stamped characters behind the label.

I've got a feeling that the American GBA games do have the stamped characters, but wanted to double check before I contact the seller regarding the issue.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks guys,

I also found another post about the same game just by googling and the suggestion was to use an emulator on a PC as well...may give that a go first and see how I get on...I'll post the results within a week  :25:

Never played it, but the arcade, MS-DOS and PS2/Xbox/Gamecube releases look the best...spectrum definitely looked the worst

Retro Chat / X-Files (PS1) Graphical Issues
« on: August 02, 2014, 15:02:47 PM »
Hi All,

Not sure if anyone has had this issue on the forum, but I'm trying to play the X-Files for PS1 on an HDTV, but the icon graphics are all glitchy!
For example the pointers are just a bunch of colours in a square as opposed to being a hand graphic.

I've tried "Game Mode" on my TV and texture smoothing on the PS2 settings but can't get this to stop...any ideas?

The PS2 is connected via RCA Composite (red,white,yellow cables)...would an original PS1 connected via antenna be best for this instead?

Tetris hands down...wish they'd stop trying to jazz it all up and make it cool in today's age though

I thought the Gameboy and Gamegear clip on magnifiers were weird...until I saw that pocket sonar thing!

Gotta say, for me it's the PSP - purely because a friend of mine gave me his for a good price which emulated PS1 games

I've got a Blue SP with a few Gameboy, Gameboy Color and Gameboy Advance games...was playing Donkey Kong Land 3 on the train up to London a couple of weeks back, the female guard then went "Oh! I haven't seen one of those in ages"

  • Magforce Racing (Dreamcast)
  • Mario & Yoshi (Gameboy)

For someone to think to themselves "let's make a game about a singing polar bear", I think you're quite right!
