    Cool Zero Tolerance & Beyond Zero Tolerance (Genesis / Mega Drive) are Now Both Freeware

    The developer, Technopop, claims these games for the SEGA Genny are now "public domain," but he's wrong. Public domain would mean anyone is free to do anything with these whatsoever, but the dev. puts some definite restrictions on their usage. So really, these two FPS's are now freeware, and that's still cause for celebration! Zero Tolerance and Beyond Zero Tolerance are some of the very few FPS's on SEGA's 16-bit powerhouse, and it's good to know we can now all enjoy them.

    Load 'em up on your emulators and "EverDrives!" Heck, make a repro if you please!

    And while you are at it, cobble a console link cable. Remember, it goes from console 1, port 2 to console 2, port 2. If you want to make your own, just splice two controller extension cables so that they go female-to-female.

    Source available at http://www.technopop.net/

    The Zero Tolerance rom on that page matches the known, verified good dump. However, the Beyond Zero Tolerance beta rom seems to be an overdump compared to what's in the NO-INTRO dat set and is slightly larger than the usual 2 megabytes (2,097,152 bytes).

    I'm sorry I never thought to post this but I read about this back into later last year when I started to take interest in the Genesis and it got me to pick up Zero Tolerance too which is surprisingly good. I wish that sequel had made it out, have not tried the ROM but it's nice that technopop put all that info out including the DIY link cable too.
