Hi!
Are this 3 "omega" groups independent groups, or part of the Omega (10558). In other words, I need to tie them together or are they truly independent groups that just have a similar name? Thanks!
I can surely say that Omega Group from St Petersburg is different from Omega Software GFX (Czech), totally different people. Can't say for sure about who re-released Galactic Patrol in 1984. I don't thing Czech Omega or Russian Omega Group existed at 1984 and made some official re-releases, so it's most probably some third label (some commercial company?).

Also, Nautilus(19078) and Ocean Conqueror(3482) seems to be that same game, that means, Ocean Conqueror was first published by OCTA Soft (Hungary) in 1986, and the 1987 publication by Rack-It (UK) is a re-release.
I totally agree, looks like this.

Original release by Games Workshop & re-released by Mastervision (a Mastertronic Company).

The question is in both inlay and instructions of the supposed Mastervision release appears Mastertronic in credits instead, not Mastervision.

I think it should be considered a Mastertronic re-release.

However, games like Se-Kaa of Assiah are really a proper Mastervision production as the brand clearly appears both in inlay and instructions.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... el_id=1850 - BrainWave is a group from Yoshkar-Ola, Russia, not from Ukraine.
https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... l_id=15168 - Virtual is alias of Alexey Malov, Yoshkar-Ola, Russia, coder from BrainWave. His other alias is Vivid.

There is one more Virtual: Pavel Nikonov, Samara, Russia, he is not in ZXDB currently, but I leave this info here just for any case.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... bel_id=133 A. Soft [3] is not a company, it's alias of Vladimir Konovalov from Accept Corp group (Russia). Vladimir's other alias is Azzimandius Soft (https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... el_id=1430). So A. Soft [3], Azzimandius Soft and Vladimir Konovalov are the same person.

There were at least two labels Virtual Reality:
One is a group from Belarus, Grodno, it's not in ZXDB yet as far as I know.
Second one is Evgeniy Tristan, Ukraine, Smila. https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... l_id=15171 - this label has is Evgeniy, so not company and not from Russia.
In Master Copy he names himself Evgeniy Tristan from Virtual Reality Ltd, but there is absolutely no evidence that there was anybody else in Virtual Reality Ltd, so I'm sure that this is still his nickname.

https://spectrumcomputing.co.uk/index.p ... 6&id=12782 - Color Lines:
Virtual Reality (Evgeniy Tristan) - code, graphics
Pro Soft (Vitaliy Bryndak Ukraine, Smila) - music
OK Software (Alexander Krut, Ukraine, Smila) - algorithms


Just to mention, Pro Soft (Russia) - is not the same Pro Soft as made music for Color Lines. Not yet sure whether Prosoft from Russia is a person or company.
