Sorry about that - I sometimes don't realize that forum names match up with orders I receive over the years. I knew you had ordered stuff from me before, but had forgotten it was that much! Thanks, I really appreciate that.
That's okay.. I forget that I'm not me here, but some guy with a silly name. You're welcome, Carl. Again, thanks for doing what you do!
You obviously have one of the most complete Lynx collections I've ever seen. That takes a lot of time and cash to do - very impressive! And keep up the good work.
Thanks, Carl. Couldn't have done it without ya. And you know I'll buy the next cart that comes out. I have MegaPak 1, after all.
Believe it or not, I may actually be missing an odd game or two from the Atari days... I think I'm missing Gordo, for example. But I have everything that's been published from Telegames and myself, including 1/25 CC CyberVirus and 1/60 CGE 5th anniversary.
I also have a few cool prototypes, such as the CyberVirus one I mentioned which is on PCB that has a Beyond Games logo imprinted on it. The missions are completely different from the ones I published. I have a Lexis proto which I received straight from Shadowsoft, and it has a slightly different intro sequence but basically the same gameplay AFAIK.
I only wish I had more free time! It's a lot of fun coding up games for the Lynx, but I haven't created a full game by myself since Remnant. Although I probably did more code on CyberVirus, it just wasn't all from scratch. I've done some odd bits on Champ Rally and MegaPak to help out (for example, I supplied all the music/audio source code for Champ Rally plus a few of the menu screens, and on MegaPak I did a bunch of code fixes for High Roller and also supplied a cleaned up title graphic). I've always wanted to make a Risk or Axis & Allies game for the Lynx because I love strategy war games, but that doesn't seem very likely these days...
I have been thinking about doing a sequel to CyberVirus. It's a natural given the mission-based approach. I even have a new enemy (deathblade sentry) which is all coded up and ready to use. But again, there's that free time thing that bogs me down.
That sounds like a fantastic collection! Maybe one day, you'll have time to post some pics? Love to see what the protos look like.
Oh, I didn't realize CGE 5th had 60 copies... I assumed 25. I wonder why none of them ever surface on eBay? I'd love one... Er, don't suppose you'd ever consider reissuing a few, eh?
The CyberVirus sequel sounds like a good idea... you should pick something you can complete in a relatively small amount of time. But you probably have a "real" job getting in the way, don't ya?
Thanks for the history lesson on your coding. I always wondered how much coding you did on the various games.
