If you have ever owned the wonderful Psygnosis video game Microcosm, specifically on the SEGA Mega CD, you may have come across a small paper pamphlet written entirely in Japanese. If you can’t read Japanese, or if your copy of Microcosm didn’t come with this fun little informational pamphlet and you appreciate a healthy dose of text spat out by an online translation engine, then your luck is well and truly in!
Here is a scan I made of the original pamphlet that shipped with copies of the game:
And here is the translated text that both Google and Microsoft Bing Translate have churned out (with some minor tweaking by myself to make it more readable):
PLEASE NOTE Thank you for your purchase of Microcosm. To play, please note the following points. If you are using a 6 button pad, the game will not function correctly when you have the pad set to 6 button mode. Turn off the power to the console once and turn the power on again while holding down the mode key to enable three-button mode in order to play the game. If you have any questions please contact us: Microcosm, Victor Entertainment Inc., 151 Sendagaya Shibuya-ku, Tokyo, 2-8-16 Telephone: 03-3423-9269 Victor Entertainment Inc. T-60164
And that is that (corrections are of course most welcome)! I hope this proves of some use to someone, somewhere. Look forward to more chunklets of bi-useless information like this as I dig them up out of several storage boxes. Enjoy!
