    As the name suggests, this project attempts to recreate one of the lost Sega Music Collection ROMs. More specifically, the one that contains different sounding music from Sonic the Hedgehog. This was made using Mega Drive VGM Player by Dead Fish Software. Just like the original software seen in footage, this remake contains the Sega Music Collection title screen music as well as recreations of possibly early versions of the Green Hill Zone, Special Stage, and Spring Yard Zone songs. I thought this would be a simple way to breathe new life into lost media.

    What you must know:
    The songs in this remake do not infinitely loop and will stop at one point and will automatically play the next song once it's over. As far as I'm aware, there is no way to modify the controls or the way this VGM player plays music. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    How to use:
    D-Pad - Change between tracks
    Start - Does nothing
    A - Does nothing
    B - Stop music
    C - Play/Restart music

    Updates:
    V1.1 Update info: Fixed positions of the BGM select screens.
    V1.2 Update info: Music Collection text and Sega logo have been edited to look more accurate.
    V1.3 Update info: The glowing underline of the Music Collection text has been slightly altered. The bottom Sonic the Hedgehog text has been repositioned. The glowing border of the Sega logo was given more detail.
    V1.4 Update info: The glowing Sega border shading is fixed.
    V1.5 Update info: Improved the Sega border once again. This might be the final update.

    Here's the ROM file. Enjoy! Feel free to give any feedback.

    I didn't know of the existence of this collection.

    Thanks! I'm glad you liked it. I tried making this as accurate as I could possibly get it. I plan on updating this frequently to make it even better.

    The remake is now at version 1.2. Things have changed since the first release and it should look way more accurate than before. Feel free to compare it to the original footage and give any feedback.
    Update: Now it's at version 1.3. From now on, I'll display new updates in the original post so I won't have to constantly reply just to do that.

    I just tested the latest version of the remake (V1.4) on my Sega Genesis Model 1 using the Mega Everdrive X3. And I have to say, even through the composite signal on a flat screen, it looks amazing! I think the glowing border around the Sega logo could use a bit more shading though. 20201217_171236.jpg

    I think I can now safely say that this remake is complete. I'm pretty satisfied with how it came out. Unless anyone has suggestions, I'll leave V1.5 as the final version.

    The composite signal makes it even more fascinating!
