Does anyone watch GameTrailers' Pop Fiction videos? They just released a video relevant to dumping.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7xkiqneQa4U

The series looks at various rumors/myths/etc. about a wide range of games. This video is about censorship of the NES version of Maniac Mansion. It was already well known that Nintendo demanded a number of changes from the C64 original before they would let Jaleco release the NES port. However, they missed one questionable part of the game, and in the currently dumped USA release of Maniac Mansion, you can actually kill a pet hamster by microwaving it.

The rumor is that there was a second run of carts that took this out. GameTrailers spoke to several people involved with the game, and soon found that Nintendo did make this request, and Jaleco made a modified version. They also found that this version was used for the PAL release. For awhile, it looked like that was all they'd find, but in the end, they found two former Jaleco employees who clearly remembered that they used the hamster-safe version on a second run of carts released in the USA. So, assuming their memories are correct, there's an undumped American version of Maniac Mansion on the NES.

Are you sure it can't be done in the PAL version?

The guy in the video is not playing as Syd or Razor, the only characters that can do the hamster thing (it's even quoted right before the footage...).

also, it might be worth to check the available US proto version to see if it is possible there

Afaik the us proto maniac mansion isn't censored at all.
It still has the "I should have tied you to my bed!" line from Nurse Edna to the male PCs, from the original C64/PC MM versions.

I have dumped some pretty rare and previously undumped games for Sord M5. Two of the games, Power Pac and Galax, only works on NTSC Sords, but I fixed them for PAL too. MESS doesn't care which one you use though.

You can find the roms here:
