    It just had a region patch? as in it's still in jap so not a translation

    P.S. region patches are of no relevance as PSEUDO is region free anyway

    So it's just Akumajou Dracula X - Gekka no Yasoukyoku (JP) that works?

    Both Samurai Spirits games were made for 1MB RAM, but yes it seems only Samurai 4 has some problems with 4MB RAM cartridge, probably due to how it handles the RAM Cartridge.

    Btw, these incompatibilities are for official RAM Cartridges. This is different than the PAR mod that must be done on older PAR to have some newer games working with 4M RAM: older APR doesn't have a carrect 4M RAM part or doesn't handle it correctly, and so there are bugs with newer games. Datel corrected this problem with newer PAR and a mod could be done on the older ones.
    PAR do not have 2 RAM parts (1Mb and 4MB), they have only 4MB part and as most of the 1MB games works with 4MB RAM, they advertised their product as 1MB+4MB compatible. There isn't any switch on "official" PAR to switch between 1MB and 4MB. This is why the incompatibilities for the 3 games mentioned earlier are visible with PAR cartridges.
    Btw, some 3rd party chinese cartridges have switch(es) for 1MB/4MB.

    Yes Akumajou Dracula X - Gekka no Yasoukyoku (JP) seems to work fine but one game I want to work really bad is Skeleton Warriors but all i get is a black screen whether its swap trick or Pseudo Saturn.

    If the emulation is correct, yes. but I didn't test it myself. Yabause could be the best emu to test these 4MD RAM bugs btw.

    Odd both EU and US version don't even get past the Produced by SEGA screen (both hang on that screen), let alone to a black screen :/, I can't get it to load at all with the swap trick, my systems seem to struggle to read that game though (both regional versions)

    SSF can play this game though

    More working:

    Vampire Savior (JP) [4MB] - Flawless, no problems with PAR+
    Tengai Makyou Dai Yon no Mokushiroku (JP) [2 CD] - Don't know how they change. How they got such amazing videos running on a Saturn? Seem like a PS1.
    Silhouette Mirage (JP) - Awesome classic ^_^
    Street Fighter II Movie (JP) [2 CD]- The animated movie, not that crap in live action :p I can't remember how to chance the discs, but it's by save or password I think.
    Street Fighter Zero 2' (JP) ["Zero 2 DASH"]

    Please give more details on none working software

    Batsugun (JP) is already on the list anyway though so I know what that does if you try and run it with PSEUDO, I ended up testing that one myself

    Please note that I'm testing all of these games to actual gameplay, not just the opening screens. Opening screens are not indicative of whether or not the game works. You have to test everything fully to actual gameplay, not just boot and name entry.

    That is one nice big list of games, now you are going to have me busy for a little while sorting through those :)

    I will get the list updated ASAP (That is not as soon as I would like though)

    That helps a lot :) thank you for posting your results and taking the time to try all of those and using all your blank CD-R's

    Maybe you can move compatibility list to Google Docs (Excel format) - sorting will be like one click ;)

    Also, please feel free to correct the spelling and game titles for the Japanese stuff I'm adding. Some are okay but I know there are probably a few that need adjustments or corrections. Madroms would be the person to consult on this point if necessary.

    Strange error, would like to see a photo or capture of that

    If that is Clockwork Knight 3, that is Jap as far as I know "Clockwork Knight - Pepperouchau's Adventure Gekan" (Though the game itself is in english) then should Bomberman USA be listed as another game

    I know of the beta of CK3 I have it on a USB HDD, have done since it was dumped and released, just not burned it... yet

    I think the error mean it could not retrieve the memory address for the IP (Initial Program) ?
