First day of February? :grin:


Not really. :) But I've begun glueing boxes, and that job should be mostly done by early February, so all that will be left to do will be assembling cartridges.

Quick update: The software revision of Knightmare has officially passed the testing phase. The ROM was tested for many hours on real hardware and my team of testers didn't encounter the crash/reset bug even once. So whatever Eduardo did, it seems he fixed the bug for good. :)

I will be able to start a recall operation later this month, in parallel to shipping orders of the upcoming Team Pixelboy releases.

Since I haven't found a job yet, I hope I can convince all the owners of Knightmare to pay for shipping their defective carts back to me. The electronics inside these carts are fully and easely reprogrammable, so I can reprogram the defective Knightmare PCBs with other ROMs later. If I can ship the replacement cartridges together with the Team Pixelboy orders of most people, then replacing the defective carts will be done at almost zero cost to me. :)

Confused - what do you mean "with other ROMs later?" I only want to ship my cart back once and be done with it.

He wants to reuse the PCB that has the broken version of Knightmare with another game, like the new homebrew that is coming out, since the PCB can be rewritten.  He'll send you the fixed version of Knightmare cartridge along with your order to save money.

So the new games to be released in February will be:

- Super Pac-Man
- Caos Begins
- Majikazo
- Knight Lore
- Mappy
- Rally-X
- Mecha-9
- Operation Wolf

 

I've been waiting years for a good port of Rally-X. I guess I can wait a few more days for orders to be open. :)

Correct. This morning I got the ball rolling on a brand new batch of Knightmare PCBs (with the corrected software) and I'll be assembling them into cartridges and shipping them as replacements. When I get the defective carts back, I will recycle them into other games later this year.

"wait a few more days for orders to be open"? What exactly are you waiting for? Rally-X and all my other upcoming games have been up for pre-order since last summer!

The pre-order is still valid, so contact Pixelboy if you want any of the games coming out soon.

I wonder if this is one of the defective Knightmare carts that did not get shipped back to team Pixelboy... 

 

eBay Link

 

If so, this is a pretty messed up move.

I haven't contacted all the people who bought Knightmare last year, so this seller may not be aware that his copy is defective.

The good news is that I'll be contacting everyone of them later today.. ;)
