I'll be fair and answer your question. A few less than reliable carts prepared by one of my colleagues did go out. But rest assured I have discontinued the game and am working hard on a revision at this very moment.
Anyone who is not satisfied with the game whatever ROM version they recieve is entitled to a full refund or an updated copy. Whichever they choose.
A little piece of info FYI while you are trying to make me out to be a sham, out of the 200+ copies of FF64 (my other game y'all shit all over) I sold guess how many people asked for a refund?
Take a wild guess
Gosh, I must be privileged as the great God of coding (in that people look at his code and say "God Almighty...") has deemed me worthy of a reply.
From your statement you intend shipping out both sets of carts to people, and then wait for them to complain - relying on people not bothering to do so. Like the scam detailed in lock stock and 2 smoking barrels, where they send out refund cheques marked "refund for the purchase of one hole piercing dildo (large)" or some such, knowing that people wouldn't present them for cashing.
As to frogz64 you can say whatever you want about the sales - a lot of people have piles, doesn't mean I want them. Does that include the Xmas reissue, the cart and disc release?
Oops, I realise I've included more than one question in a post - which one are you going to answer as you only address the least important one in any reply? Damn, now that's three.
I'm impressed in one way by your hucksterism, managing to find a rich vein of game encumbered people with disposable income. More people than went for retropia on the PC that had, what was it, 3 sales in its 18 month lifetime. Damn, four.
Jeff, you are not a commercial studio, so why are you trying to act like you are - setting deadlines for release? Concerning yourself with packaging more than the actual game? You have no deadlines to meet unless you've invested money in the pre production that wasn't disposable and are trying to make it back as soon as you can. You know, as you messaged to me in the frogz aftermath.
Truth is, you are a tiny fish in a very small pond that tries to make themselves look bigger. In this case you've, yet again, shown you've come up short in the actual delivery department.
My money would be on question three...
