a1 refers to an alternate dump. However, there are no alternate dumps of the game.

90% of the Genesis alternate dumps have been caused by someone hacking the SEGA string in an interleaved rum, and the code in GoodGen not being intelligent enough to correct that. Usually patching those two bytes back to SG in the header are enough to fix the game and revean a previously declared alternate ROM as identical to the original.
