I appluad Yurkie, Luc and Daniel's effort concerning the possible completion of Joust as well as a planned CIB release by Luc if all goes well for Daniel in adding sound/music to the game. I also will happily accept whatever decision Luc makes on the design of the cart, manual and box. Beggers can't be choosers afterall.
I also appreciate Luc offering to go the extra mile with the possible production of an AtariSoft style box and would jump at the opportunity to purchase one, as I'm sure many others would.
Here's something to consider, Luc. What if you took AtariSoft cartridge donations from everyone to help spur the possibility of using actual AtariSoft cart shells for the release. I know this could become a pain in the ass for you to deal with, so you set a deadline for this service and anyone after would receive the standard cart shell that you use... this way you'll know exactly how many AtariSoft style face and end labels you would need as well how many standard labels you would need and don't get stuck with a bunch of extra labels for one style or the other. Unless, of course, you receive enough Atari cart shells to cover the entire run!!!
I currently have an extra Defender cart that I would gladly send you to be reused and would even be willing to pay an extra fee for this service on top of the CIB price that you set... and, oh yeah, the AtariSoft style extra box.
Ultimately, whatever your decision is on all this, I will still be very happy to see this game finally finished.
