From Sega Retro


Hello. Do you have full Sega Saturn Magazine (JP) magazines? -Depressor (talk) 15:47, 17 October 2014 (CDT)

No. Book I have owned, only what I have uploaded the cover this time. Does not plan to upload the contents of the book.--Akiyama Akane (talk) 16:38, 17 October 2014 (CDT)

Start slowly from DC Magazine. . .Because of the file size and upload of convenience, it will resize to vertical 1200px. Page cut does not. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 07:45, 8 July 2015 (CDT)

Raw data

Hi. Do you have raw scans of manuals that you upload? -Depressor (talk) 08:01, 6 February 2015 (CST)

No. Raw data deleted. I have the previous data to resize. Why? --Akiyama Akane (talk) 11:50, 6 February 2015 (CST)

I collect manuals from different systems and I like working with raw scans by myself) Anyway - good update for my collection, thanks. -Depressor (talk) 14:44, 6 February 2015 (CST)

Just a thought

I've got no problems with disc scans having black backgrounds, but if it's troubling you, have you thought about putting a white sheet of paper over the disc before scanning? Could be quicker than cropping things afterwards, assuming it actually works.

Either way these scans are fantastic -Black Squirrel (talk) 13:23, 16 February 2015 (CST)

Thank you for the suggestion. And I'm sorry lot of updates. When I scan the disc, hated being scratched on the recording surface, we have scanned without putting anything in the background. Scan of Saturn disc has all completed.What is sure those who do not want to update the uploaded ones with a black background?--Akiyama Akane (talk) 16:15, 16 February 2015 (CST)

Sega Saturn Magazine 1994 vol.1

Hi, I appreciate all the Sega Saturn Magazine scans you have done. But I noticed that the Sega Saturn Magazine 1st issue I have is dated 12/20/94, not 12/01/94... Essentially, I believe the 1st issue to really be the 01/01/95 issue because at the time, Beep and Sega Saturn Magazine was released on a monthly basis. I will be editing the wiki and removing the reference to the 95/01/01 issue within the following weeks if you have no problem with it. THX.

Good work. All the cover scan of Satamaga is gathered. As you pointed out, #1995-01 has not been published. And #1994-01(1st Issue) has been released as a special issue of the December 1994 issue of Beep! MegaDrive. So, the next # 1994-01 is # 1995-02. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 10:04, 7 May 2015 (CDT)

Performance issues

It's not your computer, and it has nothing to do with what you're uploading. Don't worry.

It's an issue with the server - I'd like to think it was getting fixed, but it's been difficult to contact the admins -Black Squirrel (talk) 06:58, 10 May 2015 (CDT)

Thank you, I was relieved. For a while, and then I like to upload while watching the situation. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 07:23, 10 May 2015 (CDT)

To make PDF Index

In conjunction with looking for unreleased software article, I planned to creating an index in each PDF pages such as DCM JP 19981120 1998-01.pdf . Is there no particular problem? --Akiyama Akane (talk) 07:27, 22 July 2015 (CDT)

No problems at all -Black Squirrel (talk) 07:34, 22 July 2015 (CDT)

SimEarth (MCD)

Hello Akane. Can you tell me if the manual from this game has game credits (staff roll)? Cheers. --Hydao (talk) 22:01, 29 July 2015 (CDT)

Hello. I confirmed the manual. But game credit was not listed. Only Mami Koyama (voice actor) as narration is listed on the back cover. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 08:39, 30 July 2015 (CDT)
Thanks a lot for checking it, Akane. But I can't see her name on the back cover, am I missing something? Where's the name? --Hydao (talk) 01:40, 31 July 2015 (CDT)
It's a back cover of manual. [ナレーション/小山茉実] (narration / Mami Koyama) found. I want to scan someday, but too far... --Akiyama Akane (talk) 05:04, 31 July 2015 (CDT)
Ok, thanks a lot. :) Btw, you added 実 but the manual has 美, right? Cheers.
P.S. Found an image: http://i.ebayimg.com/00/s/MTIwMFgxNjAw/z/1poAAOxypNtSjvJE/$_57.JPG --Hydao (talk) 09:18, 31 July 2015 (CDT)

Jungle Strike (Mega Drive)

Hello Akane. I can't find online the manual of Jungle Strike, can you tell me if the manual has Staff/Credits?? If there is a page with credits, can you please take a photo (when you have free time)? I just wanted to see the credits. Many thanks! --Hydao (talk) 12:28, 16 October 2015 (CDT)

Hi. I tried to see the Japanese version of the manual, but was not written.--Akiyama Akane (talk) 18:48, 16 October 2015 (CDT)
Ah ok. Thanks a lot! =) --Hydao (talk) 05:07, 17 October 2015 (CDT)

Digital Pinball: The Necronomicon and Digital Pinball: Last Gladiators

Hello Akane, can you send me the screenshots with the Staff roll? I don't know how to access the game credits. I saw some YouTube videos but there's nothing?! Thanks in advance. --Hydao (talk) 01:09, 15 January 2016 (CST)

Hi. I add Digital Pinball: Last Gladiators's credits screenshots and trics to see credits. これらのスクリーンショットのPDFファイルは無劣化のPNGファイルとして書き出す事ができます。--Akiyama Akane (talk) 10:42, 15 January 2016 (CST)
Thanks a lot! Will you share the Digital Pinball: The Necronomicon one? How can I access the staff roll? Thanks! --Hydao (talk) 05:23, 16 January 2016 (CST)
PS: Video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GDWEfEg2CLY , I made few corrections. Cheers! --Hydao (talk) 02:25, 21 January 2016 (CST)
Thanks for the information and any updates. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 07:15, 21 January 2016 (CST)

Working on extending the Spikeout article, was wondering if you could help me with some stuff

I'm looking for some specific info, and I was wondering, since you're already quite familiar with the Japanese Sega-focused game magazines, if you could be able to step in for me: Do you know/remember whether there was any news in any of the magazines of a Dreamcast port of Spikeout at all? --Uno10 (talk) 17:19, 20 January 2016 (CST)

Hello. DCM JP 20000609 2000-20.pdf is described in interviews about the engine for Spikeout was utilized in Renta hero No.1. I can't found articles about Spikeout for DC. --Akiyama Akane (talk) 07:43, 21 January 2016 (CST)
Hmmm. That's unfortunate, but not entirely unsurprising. While I did find two articles where Toshihiro Nagoshi (the creator of Spikeout) himself stated that a DC port/prototype was being made but eventually cancelled[1][2], somehow I don't feel as though these two are substantial enough sources to cite unless I could find an actual news article regarding such a port... Meanwhile, a lot of people have made statements of there having been a Dreamcast port of Spikeout [3][4] -- specfically a tech demo that was shown in one of the Tokyo Game Show events [5]. I'm guessing the Spikeout DC tech demo was some sort of secret "behind closed doors" press-only thing??

Thanks for finding an RAH No. 1 member interview that explicitly states the use of the Spikeout engine, though! --Uno10 (talk) 13:49, 21 January 2016 (CST)

Party Quiz Mega Q

Hello Akane. I'm going to add the credits for Party Quiz Mega Q, if possible, can you give a hand? I'm not so sure about many names. Are you interested in translating them?


P.S. Kenichi Minato (港 研一) is Kenichi Iwanaga (in Yū Yū Hakusho: Horobishi Mono no Gyakushū the name appears as Minatogi Kenichi). I think I know about few other real names. --Hydao (talk) 10:17, 31 January 2016 (CST)

When it was a simple conversion from the Japanese to the romaji, it is possible to your help. -Akiyama Akane (talk) 05:46, 2 February 2016 (CST)
Ok, thanks. I will add the credits during the next days. Then if something is wrong or incomplete, please correct it. =) --Hydao (talk) 10:50, 2 February 2016 (CST)

Ishin no Arashi (a couple of corrections?)

Hello Akane. I was checking the credits.

木村 旬邦 = Tatsuo Mikami http://koei.wikia.com/wiki/Tatsuo_Mikami , http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/developerId,326489/

渡辺 旭 = Asahi or Akira? Is it really Asahi?

兒玉 恵 = Kei Kodama, not Megumi http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/developerId,81032/

新津 佳織 = Kaori Niitsu http://www.mobygames.com/developer/sheet/view/developerId,571895/

小森 智文 = Tomofumi or Tomoaki?

Thanks! --Hydao (talk) 13:32, 6 April 2016 (CDT)

Thanks for check and edit.
木村 旬邦: koei wiki is incorrect. 木村 旬邦 = Masakuni Kimura, 三上竜生 = Tatsuo Mikami. They are an another person.
confirm in https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E5okWysFVic 1:36.
渡辺 旭: Maybe Akirais correct.
小森 智文: Maybe Tomofumi is correct.
Recently, connection errors often occur ...
--Akiyama Akane (talk) 09:22, 7 April 2016 (CDT)
You are right, of course Koei wiki was/is incorrect. 木村 = Kimura, obviously! =) Thanks. --Hydao (talk) 18:21, 7 April 2016 (CDT)

Hebereke's Popoitto

Hey Akane, do you know if Hebereke's Popoitto has staff roll? Thanks. --Hydao (talk) 12:06, 19 April 2016 (CDT)

Yes. I will Upload snapshots later. -Akiyama Akane (talk) 10:07, 21 April 2016 (CDT)
Thank you very much, you are the best! =)--Hydao (talk) 15:18, 22 April 2016 (CDT)

Mahjong Gokuu Tenjiku

Hello Akane. Do you have the credits for Mahjong Gokuu Tenjiku? Thanks. --Hydao (talk) 17:46, 29 August 2016 (CDT)

Sorry, I don't know.--Akiyama Akane (talk) 05:34, 30 August 2016 (CDT)
Oh ok. Well, I have the credits for SFC: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NaldnGB5Uas . I would like to see the Saturn staff. ;) --Hydao (talk) 22:15, 4 September 2016 (CDT)

T&E SOFT Golf games

I saw you uploaded some scans of the T&E SOFT golf games. Do you have the manuals to scan? Hope so! Matt (talk) 17:11, 18 January 2018 (CST)

Editing people' with adding automatically generated production histories

I hope you sort it out until the end, and don't leave like the mess that is. That would be really bad, to leave the manual and automated credits side by side, with no rhyme or reason.

It's perfectly fine. -Black Squirrel (talk) 04:52, 27 January 2018 (CST)
What should I do?--Akiyama Akane (talk) 05:10, 27 January 2018 (CST)
(a)Continue recentry edit. (b)Stopped recentry edit. (c)Can i edit only all generate automatically person. (d)Other
-Black Squirrel (talk) 05:30, 27 January 2018 (CST)
Thanks.--Akiyama Akane (talk) 06:50, 27 January 2018 (CST)
The names of the games are missing at times. Hope you don't forget to fix that...--Trippled-3 (talk) 06:43, 28 January 2018 (CST)
For example which?--Akiyama Akane (talk) 06:51, 28 January 2018 (CST)
This is for the User Trippled-3... Credits are generated automatically... this means that the "wiki", searches for the credits in the respective pages of each game... so, some games are not showed yet because some games dosen't have the credits in their respective page ... this is just to inform you... just take it easy ...no offense...--Asagoth (talk) 07:11, 28 January 2018 (CST)

Sega games sales data

Hello Akane, First of all thank you very much for your hard work. I'm searching for Sega games sales data worldwide on Sega console (SMS, MD, GG, SS,DC), in particular shipment data (sell in data). On a magazine issue you've uploaded (Beep! Mega Drive 01/1994) I've found shipment data for Sega consoles hardware (Mega Drive, Mega CD, Game Gear) for the fiscal years between 1988 and 1993 and I've got hardware sales data for latter years from some Famitsu issues however I still haven't found any sales data for Sega games (software). I was wondering if you knew any magazine issue that could have Sega games sales data worldwide (like for example a list of Sega million selling games) or if you knew anyone that could help me. I suspect that this kind of information (Sega million selling games worldwide) is known only by japanese sources and unfortunately I can't write/read japanese.

Thank you in advance.

Company template

When games are only released for one system, the company template isn't required. It's supposed to add one-system games to the company database automatically, but I think it might be broken. It will be fixed eventually. - Hivebrain (talk) 21:58, 10 January 2020 (EST)

Thank you, I will fix it. - Akiyama Akane (talk) 22:54, 10 January 2020 (EST)

Gley Lancer scan

Hi, Akane i am not familiar to contact from here and also new on Sega Retro. i corrected "Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer" page made seperate page for re-release version i do not have "Advanced Busterhawk Gley Lancer" original release, so i can not upload 600dpi scan. i wonder if you dont mind can you pls send me higher quality of full cover your upload is "3,175 × 2,005" 2.37 mb 72dpi can you rescan it at 600dpi? or maybe you reduced size and dpi for site upload you may have higher quality of this scan ?

I split your talk into separate items. Thanks for posting the high quality scan, it will be helpful. I think that the 600dpi-PNG format is too large for uploading scanned images. For this reason, I resized it to 300dpi-jpg and upload. 英語に不慣れなため、うまく伝わらなかったらごめんなさい。-Akiyama Akane (talk) 06:43, 11 March 2020 (EDT)
thank for your interest, i am waiting for your upload, i tried to buy the game but noone sell under $500

File History

is it possible to delete some of file history "https://segaretro.org/File:ABGleylancer_MD_JP_Box.jpg" it was my first upload and i uploaded alternative cover scan to wrong page, so now i page looks like repeatedly reverted. shortly my upload does not belong to this page so is it possible to delete my uploads from this page "https://segaretro.org/File:ABGleylancer_MD_JP_Box.jpg" thanks

I don't see any problem with this. Also, I'm not the administrator of this wiki, so I can't modify the history. -Akiyama Akane (talk) 09:38, 13 December 2020 (EST)
