Klonoa game demos
« on: July 13, 2020, 06:40:02 PM »
This is a strange request to be certain;  :sick:

 but I am looking for physical copies of demo software that have demos for Klonoa games any of the three major regions (US,EU,JAP)

Thing is... I only know two (possibly three) publications that had Klonoa demos on them.

Playstation Underground JAMpack 2001 and OPM (Official PlayStation Magazine) Demo Disc No. 8 (May 1998)

The latter of which I am unable to find any listing for.

Does anyone know any other instances of Klonoa demos?

I think there was a European PS1 demo disc that had a Klonoa demo on it or something, but I know nothing further than that.  :sad_face:

I remember there being quite a few demo discs for DtP. Here are the names of a few I could find:

Hyper PlayStation Re-Mix Vol. 1

Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine Demo Disc No. 08
Official U.S. PlayStation Magazine Demo Disc No. 45


RR Type 4 (apparently? definitely new to me)

I'm sure some on here have far more names than I do lol. There's tons of Japanese demo discs that contained the game and I've always had trouble keeping up with them.

So so far I have ordered two of the demo discs mentioned. The PSUnderground summer disc, and the OPSMagazine disc No. 45.

Speaking of imports, I recently bought a Unirom card offa ebay so I can play anything on my PS1.
So I was finally able to play that British PAL copy of Klonoa Beach Volleyball I bought 3 years ago.  ;)

One issue though:
The entire game is in black and white (monochrome).
I'm not completely sure why this is happening but I have heard in the past that European PS1s have a different refresh rate than US/Japanese ones. I never thought that meant it would sap all color and soul from the image.

Is there any way for me to get the color back?  :confused:
