Cruiz'in the Sega Gopher - March 2017 - Jaguar Bubsy Music now playable on Genesis!
Bubsy Sega Gopher Mod music
Hey Bubsy fans! Have you ever wanted to play Bubsy Bobcat: Fractured Furry Tales from the Atari Jaguar on the Sega Genesis?
Well you can't.
But today you can play all the mod music from that Jaguar game on your Sega Genesis, or in this case the Sega Gopher or whatever you call that Sega handheld system that Atgames sells.
File is attached, (Called "Game.zip") along with all the best versions of Bubsy to play on the Genesis and a few modified games with Bubsy in it.
And as a added bonus: The MDB.DAT (also attached but also in the "Game.zip" file) or menu was updated in this game directory to show pictures of Bubsy as you select games. Yep, all that hard work and research that I did for the Atari Flashback Portable, which come to find out disabled the MDB.DAT support, came in handy for this Sega Gopher directory.
So I've been busy, and things I might do next is...
1) Find a way to slow mods down. What you will hear on the "BubsyFFTx.bin" files is the NTSC version that actually sounded the best by at 5/6th the speed. The Pal version was at the right speed but sounded horrible on the Sega Gopher. But if I slow the mods down to compensate then the music will be closer to regular speed.
2) Make more unique pictures of the Fractured Furry Tales mod tracks. Currently they just have Bubsy giving a cheers in drinking pose. One of my two favorite photoshops I did of Bubsy to date. (and quite popular on the internet now)
3) And finally I might just make more picture modifications so you can scroll through and see many pictures of Bubsy at the menu level.
Ultimately, thanks to Oerg866 and Nineko for hacking Toy Story on the Sega Genesis and finding a modplayer embedded in a Genesis game. It was exciting to hear the Jaguar Bubsy music tracks on the Genesis for the first time.

And while that worked, this version was even better:
