I'm assuming the ones in bold are the ones available in the DoM, right?

I'm a bit busy right now, but anyway I'll add this absent MD Mini releases very soon (need to analyze all differences compared to originals).

  2. us_de_The_Story_of_Thor.bin
  3. us_eu_Landstalker.bin
  4. us_eu_Light_Crusader.bin
  5. us_eu_Sonic_Spinball.bin

  32. us_us_Phantasy_Star_IV.bin
  33. us_us_Road_Rash_II.bin
  34. us_us_Shining_Force.bin
  35. us_us_Shinobi_III.bin
  36. us_us_Super_Fantasy_Zone.bin
  37. us_us_Tetris.bin
  38. us_us_Vectorman.bin
AND, as an addendum, here are the Japanese and Asian (Korean and Chinese) exclusive ROMs not available at all on the US and European Sega Genesis Mini consoles:
  1. Japanese & Asian
    1. Assault Suit Leynos
    2. Game no Kanzume Otokuyou
    3. Langrisser II
    4. MUSHA
    5. Powerball
    6. Puyo Puyo 2
    7. Puzzle & Action: Tant-R
    8. Slap Fight MD
    9. Snow Bros.
    10. The Revenge of Shinobi
  2. Japanese
    1. Dyna Brother 2
    2. Lord Monarch
    3. Mado Monogatari I
    4. Party Quiz Mega Q
    5. Rent A Hero
    6. The Hybris Front
    7. Yu Yu Hakusho Makyō Tōitsusen
  3. Asian
    1.Alien Soldier
    2. OutRun 2019
    3. Shining Force II
    4. Sword of Vermillion
None of these ROMs have been ripped yet. In fact, nobody knows if someone or a group managed to buy a Japanese or Asian (or both) consoles, and managed to rip them but not dump them on the Internet.

There.

I may or may not have made @omonim2007's job a bit easier with these summaries.

I may or may not have made @omonim2007's job a bit easier with these summaries.
Please be patient, I'll add all the MD Mini releases in a few days.
I began with the matched ones.

The best help is to analyze exact difference between ROMs (a new ones from MD Mini and already dumped ones from DoM).
Most of them are hacked to bypass region protection or so on, that's why (and it's just my own opinion) I would not add them to DoM at all.

Weird.

If you follow the example of Trials of Mana on the SNES DAT, you'll notice that their language variants were datted as well. And yes, I know that they are the same "(World)" ROM.

Hmm, language variants have nothing to do with region hacks, it makes sense to me to not add these to DoM, agree with omonim2007.

And btw, SD3 never had a region lockout in the ROM, only the typical CIC chip lock. I am easily able to run a original SD3 game on my PAL SNES. Thus the official translations are no region hacks, but official translated re-releases.
I don't have much to say here, but adding some officially hacked roms... might still be interesting as they are released in that state in a official way. Some GBA VC dumps with unlocked ecard specials at start could be called official hacks too, don't you agree? If really ONLY the check for region is changed... YEAH difficult to decide here ...
