Pier Solar (Genesis/Mega Drive) (DEFUNCT)

Postby R9delta » September 22nd, 2014, 1:35 pm

Pier Solar is an RPG that was produced and released by WaterMelon back in 2010 that really shows what the Genesis was still capable of well after it's prime. Since the game is out of print and the cartridge doesn't work on the Retron 5 as-is anyway I've made a patch so you all can enjoy it until Pier Solar HD is released.

Hopefully most people have Sonic 2 here :)

Note: This patch no longer works as of update ver. 2.1 for the Retron 5 nor does it work on the RetroFreak as of update ver. 1.4

Hi,

i'm new here.
For all the patches you made "R9delta" you rules !! (sfc jap to us ones !!!)

i will receive a true pier solar cart soon but i saw that it doesn't work on retron5
So i tried this patch
it boot on Watermelon Screen and freeze/black screen.

Correct me if i'am wrong but i'am pretty sure the sonic to use is the US version.
I only got Pal version.
Is it difficult to make a new patch for SONIC 2 PAL or whatever PAL game that fit :mrgreen: ?

Thanks a lot for all your work

Well from what i've found the rom for Sonic 2 is the same for all regions..meaning I assume there is no difference between the US version or the PAL version outside of the cartridge shell and which system you pop it in to (a PAL Megadrive will make it run at 50hz while a US genesis would make it run at 60hz). Anyway with that said apparently there is a second revision of Sonic 2, so i've taken that now and created a patch for it just in case that's actually what you have.

Try this patch instead:

Unfortunately I can't really guarantee if it'll work or not for you but please report back on it. I hope it does work though as I'm not sure if there's any other option for you unless maybe you have another game i can use as the basis.

Thanks a lot for your quick answer and for the info on sonic 2 :)
I tried the new patch but alas : Black Screen directly.
The first one showed the WaterMelon boot screen but after it go back to retron 5 screen.

I don't know if i m doing something wrong as i successfully applied numerous patches on SFC games !
Maybe firmware/app revision ?
Mine are:
Application : V2.2 (build 1789)
System : V.0.2.2
Harware rev: 1.0

If you want to try a patch for another game, i can say i have :
Thunderforce 3 US
Bare Knuckles 3 Jap
Dragon's fury / Dragon's revenge Pal

Thanks again for your hard work

Lo

I'll be at work most of the day so it'll be a bit before I can get to it but thunder force 3 is perfect. Not only is that a bad ass game but I have it and can test on my own hardware instead of just emulators as well.

Also you might want to consider updating your retron 5 to v2.3 beta. 2.2 has broken a lot of Genesis games and 2.3 corrects that.

Thunder Force III (US) to Pier Solar:

If this one doesn't work for you then I think you should definitely think about upgrading the firmware on your Retron 5.
