Hopefully you don't rely solely on the dwindling amount of unused POKEY Chips, and Atari 7800 BallBlazer&Commando carts. You could also use 800XL, 600XL, 65XE, and maybe also 4-port 5200 POKEYS' as well. Just saying.
No, I would never salvage POKEY chips from working 8-bit computers or 5200s.
Many thanks to Northcoastgamer, BNE Jeff, TrekMD and Darrell Spice, Jr. for loaning us boxes and manuals we could scan at high resolution, and to Nathan Strum for putting together these awesome labels! This is a photo of physical carts, not a render.
Received the second round of manual proofs and they all look great! Manual order has been approved, and I should have them next week. Some games, such as L.E.M., I already have manuals for, so not everything is shown below.
In writing my post to the game, I said that I received it at Christmas as a gift, and I said that it was a great game, I was trying to make the point that the game is great if not one of the best I have played on this system. I in no way was trying to cause a stir with anyone here or elsewhere, I do apologize for anything that this may have caused, If it will help the mater I will gladly send it to anyone of the individuals involved in making this game just to try to rectify the situation. Just PM me your address. Again had I known it would have caused such a stir I would not have made the post.
No need to do that! People are just a little sensitive because the game hasn't gone on sale yet and there are individuals in the community who make bootleg copies of homebrew games. But there are a few copies out there, and obviously you have one of them. Glad you are enjoying the game, and I look forward to making it available very soon for many others.
I don't really think it's realistic to expect that people aren't going to, someday, sell or trade items they own. Someone may have the best intentions when buying a game like this, but life is not predictable and there are many reasons why someone may need to or want to sell a game they previously intended to keep indefinitely. I also don't really think it's fair to say, "You can't sell this game!" Games are going to change hands, that's just the nature of things.
