This will act as my attempt to discover the truth behind to the proto 'homebrew' releases of Robot Rubble and League Of Light for the Intellivision. Found this very interesting message, It shows ties between Roger, Chris Neiman (intvman) Joe Z, Intelligentvision and Willy,Tim (presumably bigtimcut) and mike H...and Keith Robinson releasing cart games! Darn!!! I want to go to the next CGE now! Roger (psychostormtrooper) and Bigtimcut are involved in releasing these two games, but did they burn the rom/eprom themselves? Very interesting read about CGE2K5. More to come as I dig it up, unless whoever released these wants to share info. ========================= Hello everyone, My name is Chris Neiman. I produce the new IntelligentVision games. (I want to publicly thank Arnauld, Ryan, Joe Z., and Mike H. for their programming participation.) Many people have had questions about the IntelligentVision website. The old contract IntelligentVision had with the service provider has expired. We are in the process of moving the site to another location. We we're hoping to have the new site up by now, but as many of you know, the Classic Game Expo was held this last weekend. This event prevented Roger and me (remember that movie?) from working on the new site. We hope to have the new site up and running by the end of the week so that Intellivision gamers and collectors can purchase the re-release of Joe Z's World Famous 4-Tris. As with Joe Z's orginal release of 4- Tris, the IntelligentVision version of the game will be sold in limited quantities. Be sure to get your copy soon because many were already sold at CGE2K5. I will post the link once the new site is up. Thank you for your patience. Onto CGE2K5... I had the opportunity to attend CGE2K5 last weekend with Tim L. and Willy Moeller. I had a blast with Tim and Willy, although I wish we could have spent more time playing two-player Inty games. I did manage to get the best of Willy on MLB 12-1, however, I think his controller was sticking. The NFL score was much closer at 12-9 after 2 quarters of play. It's always great to hang out with fellow Intellivisionaires. Anyway, here's the part everyone wants to hear... During the event, I spent about an hour with Keith R. at the IP booth on Friday evening before the show. He showed me the two protos of Illusions and Deep Pockets. Both of the protos do in fact fit into a standard Mattel cart shell. However, since they were protos, one of the games was sporting a standard MLB label while the other had a LVP&B label (donor cart shells). I asked to see under the hood, but Keith would not allow me to look since the games were not available for sale at the show. The retail games were not ready in time. Keith R. did say that their board design uses EPROMs, not ROMs. He also said there are two chips on the board. I played both the protos on a standard Inty and they are what he said they are... Illusions and Deep Pockets... completely playable versions. My story differs from Tim's a little bit. Keith told me they were going to release 8 new (previously unreleased) titles over the next 2- 3 years. They are going to release them 2 games at a time. 500 of each title will be produced for a total run of 4,000 carts. I asked him about future titles but he wouldn't say. He was skepitcal they could sell all 500 of each title. He is not worried about running out as soon as they hit the market so there is no need to scramble to get one. Interestingly, IP is not using recycled Mattel cart shells like IntelligentVision does. The company producing the carts is a contractor (BTW, it isn't IntelligentVision as someone here thought). The contractor is having new cart shells molded. I asked Keith if they were going to be identical to the traditional Mattel cart shell design or if they would be different. He said he hadn't decided which made me believe they are still aways away from having them available for purchase. He said he was thinking about having the Running Man molded into the new cart shell design on top of the cart shell. I told him he ought to do the new cart shells in new colors like dark blue. He said he might do that. I asked him if he found the original dies to mold the shells, but he said the original Asian dies were dumped in the sea near Hong Kong or Taiwan (or whereever they were manufactured in Asia). This didn't answer the question about the USA dies. So, I don't know how he will get the new cart shells manufactured. Keith told me that IP was going to have overlays, boxes, and color manuals for the new games. The boxes are going to be similar to the KC BASIC boxes. For those of you who don't know what those are... they are the Mattel book-style boxes with a window cut out in the front cover. The window allows the manual to serve as the box title (and game cover) just like the KC cassettes such as Geography Challenge, Family Budgeting, and the 3 Crossword games. That way, all 4,000 boxes will be identical to one another. He didn't say they would be book-style though. I didn't ask him about how the overlays and manuals will be done. Keith told me the new games were going to be sold for about $25 each. He said IP may have to go as high as $30 depending on the final costs of production. He did NOT tell me $20 like he told Tim the next day. He says he wants to get carts out to satisfy the real gamers and collectors. This is a complete 180 from what he said a year ago when he saw Stonix at the last CGE. Back then, he said that IP looked into making new carts a couple years ago but that it just wasn't cost effective. Today he now has plans for 8 titles. Someone asked me if I thought IP was making carts because IntelligentVision is making carts. I ABSOLUTELY believe that to be the case. I hope this answers some questions about the new products IP will sell. I can't think of anything else to add right now so if you think of questions let me know. Sincerely, Chris Neiman
Hi guys, Making that final push to clear out my collection. I've really enjoyed having these rare games and I've displayed them for many years in my office. I have two young children and I want them to be able to play with anything in my office. So, I'm clearing out my entire collection finally. I have the following rare items that may be of interest to collectors. League of light and robot rubble. The boxes are not even built and are flat. Minehunter number 26 This auction is ending soon. Same game and robots #26 Stonix #26 4-tris (LTO) Cuttle cart 3 (no cart shell, but includes labels , cable and cart board. ) System changer (Going up today) -PENDING SALE Orphan overlays series 3 MIB Rocky and bullwinkle Adventures of tron Space Patrol Donkeykong (homebrew) Stadium mud buggies Congo Bongo Mountain madness super pro skiing Pending Sale All the other normal games CIB the hardware (console, voice etc) If you PM me, PM me with a reasonable offer unless I have it listed on Ebay. That reasonable offer will be slightly lower than what I think it might go for in auction. But let's be reasonable. And I'm more inclined to try to take my chances on ebay unless someone just HAS to have something I listed. :-) I will probably not get back right away as I only visit the forum occasionally. just watch my ebay "nicepurchase" Thanks guys and good luck! -Duane
