Research Methods: Hidden data

Arcade

  • Commando (Sega)
  • D-Day (Jaleco)
  • Top Roller (Jaleco)
  • Yamato (Sega)

MSX

  • Cannon Turbo (JP Publisher: Takeru [Brother])
  • Yellow Submarine (JP Publisher: Takeru [Brother])
Early versions of these games have an E.L.S. copyright that does not appear in the final releases. [1]

SG-1000/SC-3000

  • Yamato (JP Publisher: Sega; AU Publisher: John Sands; NZ Publisher: Grandstand)


The following games use the same font as Yamato (and the MSX games) and came up in a code comparison:

  • Monaco GP (JP/EU Publisher: Sega; AU Publisher: John Sands; NZ Publisher: Grandstand)
  • Pachinko (JP Publisher: Sega)
  • Pachinko II (JP Publisher: Sega)
  • Sega Flipper / Video Flipper (JP/EU Publisher: Sega; AU Publisher: John Sands; NZ Publisher: Grandstand)
  • Star Jacker (JP/EU Publisher: Sega; AU Publisher: John Sands; NZ Publisher: Grandstand)

Names of two programmers can be found in the Monaco GP ROM [2]; one of them is "M. Kidooka," who could be future Arc System Works founder Minoru Kidooka, but he had worked at Sega since 1982 and was involved with the design of the SG-1000. [3]
