Nice looking boxes. I have made something similar, but in a different look.

The boxes (no carts or instructions) themself are regual card board like all my boxes. I sell them in two qualities:

EUR 10.00 per box color laser artwork
EUR 17.50 per box inkjet artwork
Shipping to North America is EURO 8.00 (airmail) for up to 4 boxes.

The inkjet artwork looks way nicer.

Marc.

Both sets of boxes look mighty sweet, guys. :)

This reminds me of a question I've always wanted to get an answer to: Has anyone ever bothered to fix the title screen and "unhack" the other things (like the flying brassieres) in Matt Patrol, to revert it to its "intended original state"?

Fixing the "bra" alien wasn't too tough, although I'm sure somebody can do better? The title screen is a bit more involved.

Looks nice, but I think it could be a little better. Did you do that hack yourself? :)

I tried to hack this game a few years ago, and was able to change the ships back to their normal forms. However, when I changed the title screen, I wound up with Maoo Patrol. I dunno, maybe it's the Communist version of the game?

Give this one a shot. It ain't perfect, but I've changed much of the title screen along with all three aerial enemies. I hate the way the red guys look, but this was as close as I could get to the arcade game without animation or multiple colors.

I like yours sooo much better. It's slightly over 32K though? It looks like there is 3 bytes of garbage at the end. I trimmed it so it fits on an eprom.

Very nice work so far guys! :D I believe the animated logo at the top is meant to be just like the Dig Dug proto. I think it would be nice to have a consistent logo between Dig Dug and Moon Patrol, but that's just my opinion... As for the red saucer, how about this one below (arcade version on the left, Jess's saucer in the middle, and mine on the right).

Beyond that, all we need is to figure out where the name table data for the title screen is located in the ROM, and we can change the main "Moon" title properly. If I could, I would reproduce the one from the arcade game (as can be seen on klov.com) but I don't know if there's enough free space in the tile pattern table to do it...

EDIT: Added title screen mockups. (Still don't know if it's doable, mind you.)

Box pricing is pricey! :) lol The orange ones would be about $36 in USD for one shipped. I do like the orange boxes though. They'd better match the carts I got from Al here at AA.

Retroillucid-- how are yours printed just for sake of comparison? I'm interested in a set for the Atarisoft games, but not quite committed to a set yet. :)

Also I noticed a difference in gameplay vs on Mame for Matt/Maoo/Moon Patrol... not to be nitpicky, but can the code be modified to let you move the vehicle while it's in mid-air jumping or is that a huge rewrite issue?

Dear ColecoVision Fans... Here's a collection of prototype repro in box... If you're interested in some...just send me a PM... I've some other CIB too...


The repro box images are painfully too small to even get a good look at.

Ok, I will check the code to see what I can do. Maybe we can compress the title data...

What would you charge for just a plain old cartridge with no sticker and box? The only reason I ask is because this is really all that I would need to enjoy this sort of thing.

Coleco repro's are normally pretty expensive ($30 or more depending on the seller)
