New ROM Dumps: BS-X Shooting! + Extras

Amidst all the BS-X Project news (Download v002 today!) it’s almost been tough to keep up with the “Schedule”, per se. Regardless, I promised to have the following ROM up on my birthday, which is, well, November 4th!

This ROM is probably the worst-kept secret of the blog since around May or so, when it was initially obtained. It’s also, in my opinion, one of the best releases since Konae-chan no DokiDoki Pengin Kazoku, and a nice recovery of what we’ve only had video of before.

Can you guess what it is? Well, if you’ve checked some of the comments I made or checked what I was doing around Youtube, it should be easy to guess, actually:

BS-X Shooting! The first of the three “Satella-shooting trilogy” games, this little Dezaemon-engine shmup is short, yet crazy and chaotic.
Launch 8M Packs at your enemies! Face the likes of surfing dog and kissing shark! Beware the enemies with weird quasi-realistic faces plastered on them!

This ROM was generously donated to me by ChronoMoogle and dumped by ikari_01 of #snesfreaks. A few things of note: The header is slightly different from the one in the NND video upload. In particular, the header is “BS-Xシューティング” instead of the “DEZAEMON BSX” in said video.
The ROM has simple and easy emulator compatibility – it appears to work on anything that isn’t ZSNES. (I ran it on ZSNES by removing the header data, interestingly enough.)

Ah, not done yet, though, not done yet. As like days of… uh, a bit further back, I got two magazines to show as well. And one is kind of not what we expected. In fact, when Callis dumped it, he didn’t even realize it was a magazine; the original filename was “Horse Data.bs”.



And starting from that screen, can you really blame him?
Previous bootups that went into a black screen with text were Data Packs. The one major difference is, this one had 6 lines full. I thought it’d be worth investigating, so I tried booting it myself;



Looking at this header, I think it says… “Satesupo DX 4″ or some like that, yes? Actually, I’m literally figuring this out as I write this, lol!

So I open it up in BSNES, take a printscreen and then-

Woah wait what?


This is a very text-laden magazine, of course. It’s not in any of the previous formats I got used to, though! L and R do some funky navigation things, and…


I don’t think I’ve seen a chart quite like this in the other magazines!

So far, I’ve only gotten this to boot on BSNES, too. Callis seemed unable to boot it even on a real hardware setup. Weird!

please excuse the misnamed file. This is kind of last-second here.

Alright, one more.


This last magazine is in a more familiar format.
“Gal Kan Bazooka!” appears to be a magazine about girls. I like girls. I’m not so sure I like bazookas, though. They’re kinda hazardous.


Reading from the top-down, this is a very text-heavy magazine.


It has very few pictures, even. I mean, I think I got half of them in these screenshots as it is. Ouchie.


If my personal contact info was on a commercial Super Famicom product, should I be proud, or very, very concerned?

But enough random comments. At the moment I only got this one to boot on SNES9XPP XE. I didn’t check the header – assuming for whatever reason it’s not reading right on emulators due to it. But too lazy at the moment to adjust it.
