So, about a year ago, I purchased a Sega Saturn at my local FuncoLand and (just my luck), they stopped selling games and accessories for it about 2 days later. Before that, however, I did manage to pick up Guardian Heroes (awesome), Darius Gaiden (good), and Clockwork Knight 2 (blech). All the other games they had were sports games.
Now to get to the "help me" part of the message:
Soon after this, hoping to pick up some more games, I modded my saturn, and then hit EBay to find some import games. I managed to pick up a copy of Metal Slug, and the guy also sent me a Pro Action Replay which he said would "make the game work". Now, when I boot up the game (with or without the pro action replay), I get a blue screen message in Japanese about RAM. I have posted below a picture of the pro action replay I have. I'm assuming that this is the wrong cart, and that I need to buy a ram cart, but would like some confirmation before purchasing. Is there something specific I have to do to make this game work, or did this guy scam me (at least as far as the PAR goes)?
(I know the text is a little hard to read. It reads "Pro Action Replay High Tech Option Series" and has a "2" in the upper right hand corner. There is also a logo the reads "Karat".)
:idea: If the picture isn't shwoing up (for whatever reason), you can also check the page where it is posted here, but beware, there are many, many photos posted there, and it's definitely NOT for dial-up. If you DO decide to visit that page, the pic of the PAR is near the bottom.
I thank you all for your help in this matter. I hope that, soon, I'll be up and running, playing good old Metal Slug.
