I don't have the time to fix this now, so this is either a reminder to myself or a request for someone else to fix if they see this first.
This game needs mor countries added as per the back cover scan:

Added a submission for the Australian version of "From Russia with Love" (PS2) but accidentally set the region to 'Australia' when it should be 'Australia (regionwide)'.  Could whoever approves said submission amend region accordingly.

Super Off Road being repacked with things makes sense for a separate variation, as do the others.

Just about every game released these days is repackaged and region-free, media wise, but we don't classify them as such because of the packaging. We try to do our best when it comes to this, and I wasn't planning on blindly changing all of the Accolade/Ballistic releases just because one was the same. We do our research first before changing things, and it was more of a reminder to look at the rest in case they needed to be switched.

Despite it being "cleaner", it doesn't make it any less true that the game is a true Regionfree entry, even down to the packaging. Is it the same EXACT game, packaging, and manual, and retailed in another Region? It's Regionfree, at least according to our System - it doesn't allow for specifying multiple Regions. If anything were different, such as with Sonic the Hedgehog SMS where the only difference is a sticker over the UPC for US retail, I would classify them differently.

Any update on this ?

Should they be merged (US and Region free variation or separate US EURO releases)

Also forget to mention there is a French Manual of the game and in the last pages it mention the Accolade EUROPE
http://segaretro.org/imag...nslaught_MD_FR_Manual.pdf

And also German variation

Maybe this can prove a PAL (euro) diferent release of the game with different packing.

It looks like the packaging was Region Free, but they may have packed in regional manuals. The Europe boxes had a sticker on it that stated that it supports Mega Drive:

The card box already states it suports Genesis and Megadrive systems.

That particular case (of Super Off Road) have stickers saying about MegaDrive Support and also mention the different languages of the manual.

For the onslaught game, the only variation I see is that some have a sticker with an alert of the non working consoles with TMMS, or in the German case to mention the inclusion of a german manual. Really don't know about the french case, just found the pdf version of the manual.

This is a almost a rare game, and it was a game that only work in non TMSS Mega drives (before September 1991) and Mega Driive was released in Europe in late 1990, and possible a low print game because of this limitation, so it's hard to be sure about the correct way to have this game submited...

I sugest to have in this 2 possible ways:

1-REGION FREE (With sub-variation of German and french repack, and also TMSS disclaimer)
or
2-US and EURO (With sub-variation of German and french repack in EURO variation, and also TMSS disclaimer)

As stated before, i would like to see the option 2, but i'm very confortable with option 1 also.

I think I'm going to go with Region Free, and having German and French versions, because the same English version is used for the UK and Australia.

Criminal Girls: Invite Only (Europe)

Entry lists region as Europe (regionwide), but should be France (according to EAN).
