Yea that's a weird thing about R-Zone, if your screen is dead it means the batteries need changed. But it's a great console to collect for as it has a good handful of fun games.

Aren't R-Zone games basically like standard Tiger handheld games except in red and black? I love the red and black nod to the Virtual Boy but aside from that the games look kinda crude.. but anyway, to each their own.

This is a complete collection of every known R Zone cartridge and it's actually vbsteffel's collection.

thank you for posting the picture dreammary. it was quite the challenge to assemble the collection. i don't even want to say what it has cost me. i hope someday another game is discovered. i hope everyone that wants a complete collection has the best of luck in finding the games.

Are these dumped and/or preserved for the future? How is each unit different from the other -- just ROM, peripherals, too, etc.?

cYa,

I don't think so, you will never obtain graphics as it is a lcd display. But it should be possible to extract the few code inside if you manage to create an adaptor... and find how it works !

does anybody have absolute proof of any other games that exist beyond the 26?
does anybody know how many color background super screen attachments were made?

LED/LCD/VFD games can be simulated rather than emulated; the process entails photographing the LED/LCD/VFD screen (in the test mode which activates all art at once, if possible), recording all sounds, and then replicating the original gameplay as closely as possible, using the recorded images and sounds with entirely new code.

I know of three LED/LCD/VFD game simulation sites:

www.madrigaldesign.it/sim/
http://www.pica-pic.com/
http://www.handheld.remakes.org/

I also just found this thread from 2005 which links to various other simulators, most or all now dead links, but accessible by placing web.archive.org/web/ before them:

http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopi ... 9740fdaf8978256e0c918b664

No one has ever simulated an R-Zone game to my knowledge, but it could be done using the same process. Ideally, they'd be simulated from both the HMD or handheld units, as well as from the SuperScreen, so players could choose between the red glowing graphics and the black (the SuperScreen slides could actually be used with either in a simulator).

I had noticed a text-only mention of Football on the MESS site, but assumed it was a mistake. Football may be even rarer than The Mask of Zorro! I'm surprised a 26th game has been found, and now wonder if there are more. Any additional games would probably be European exclusives, or unreleased prototypes. Where did you find the seller, vbsteffel, if not on eBay? I'd like to buy another copy if they find one. I've bought all but two of my games on eBay (including several from Greece), plus Millennium Falcon Challenge from Trade-N-Games in Fenton, Missouri, and Imperial Assault from Games Station Retro in Beirut, Lebanon. I'm surprised Tiger exported the R-Zone far and wide during its short run. It seems to have failed everywhere.

I acquired Indy 500 sealed for less than $20 today, bringing me up to 18 sealed + 2 loose games out of the 26 known. I still need Independence Day, Men in Black, Road Rash 3, VR Troopers, The Mask of Zorro, and, of course, Football, either sealed or loose, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy and The Lost World: Jurassic Park sealed only, although I still think The Lost World: Jurassic Park and The Mask of Zorro may have been pack-ins only; I've never seen them on their own cards. I haven't seen cards for VR Troopers or Football, either.

I still plan to scan all the cardart and manuals but haven't yet opened any of my sealed games. I've been waiting until I acquire a complete collection. I may stop waiting because progress is so slow, although I suppose 18 sealed + 2 loose in eight months is actually good for R-Zone collecting. I think I've spent around US$700 so far.

Regarding SuperScreen games, I have NiGHTS Into Dreams sealed with a SuperScreen slide, and Star Wars: Millennium Falcon Challenge sealed with and without a SuperScreen slide. I also have several other loose SuperScreen slides, and have Panzer Dragoon sealed without a SuperScreen slide but have seen it sealed with one.
