Yeah, I don't notice any sound delay on mine either. If there is any it's definitely not half a second. More like .02 or something
Favorite RPGs are the Chrono, Earthbound, and Lunar series. Also a huge fan of Zelda, Super Smash Bros, Banjo-Kazooie/Tooie/DK64 and many other games.

On the bright side, several past failures at a Genesis Mini have provided Sega with lots of experience.

I was about to say something snarky about "lesson learned: don't hire AtGames", but then it occurred to me: that isn't actually an unfair statement.

Things Sega probably has learned from the history of AtGames devices:

1. Quality actually does matter. AtGames Sega devices sold for crap, while the Nintendo minis sold great. Clearly there is an audience that cares about the quality, and will buy or encourage the buying of retro minis that are good.

2. AtGames included cartridge play, and it still sold poorly. This most likely means the audience doesn't care about this feature. Not that no one wants to play old cartridges, but the audience for that feature also wants things like "99% accurate emulation", and other such premium features.

3. Library count doesn't matter, library quality matters. Padded libraries didn't help AtGames, and they probably won't help anyone else. Even casual consumers care about the number of *real* games.

My theory? Simply replacing the music isn't enough, because one of the original contracts was poorly written, and assigned royalties or payment of some kind to the game without quite explicitly tying it to the inclusion of said music. So, even if they removed and replaced the music, the owner of the original music *might* still have grounds for a lawsuit. Or at least, enough grounds to make it a credible threat, that Sega just doesn't want to deal with.

I almost understood what I read there, even if I couldn't quite. That can't be the case. In a court of law, the moment the musician argues his involvement, it would be pretty difficult to convince a judge to assess the product with the portions featuring the musician's contributions excluded from the rerelease. It is common to dissect contribution percentages, despite the twist in this case being the poorly assembled contract. Sega definitely should win such a case, so I think it's more like you said - that they just would rather not deal with it.

No matter what the contract says I think it's pretty obvious Sega and the Jackson family are not on good terms or this would have been settled years ago
