There are a number of problems with the current rom listed in no-inro, yet Jurassic Boy 2 (E) [C][!].gbc (crc32=44827E74) does work perfectly so I figured this would be something worth looking into.

Hi AllenK,

thanks for your message.
The ROM you mention (crc32=44827E74) is a known bad dump:
a) it's an overdump b) it doesn't dump the ROM correctly/completely due Sachen's custom memory mapping chip.

The ROM currently listed by No-Intro ( works fine in MAME where the mapper is correctly implemented.

Should have mentioned:

The bad dump you're referring to is listed on

not on

Actually, there is at least one more variant of Jurassic Boy that is not in DoM yet. I was going to analyze the ROMs and check for differences first.
