I voted Atari Jaguar cart.

This project looks very promising.

 

Would you consider a cheaper (say ~15€) ROM release for Skunkboard or BJL owners?

Of course there would be a higher risk of piracy... but I hope it isn't a real threat. Who would do that?

 

Personally I'm ok with a 50€ cart but I'd appreciate a ROM release.

I can generally afford one $100 (US) game every six months and I generally want it to be a good quality game for that price. Games like Battlesphere Gold, Total Carnage, and Robin's Requiem were in that bracket. Towers 2 was also in that bracket along with Worms that I also bought. Was disappointed with Towers 2.

 

This game looks promising so would probably buy the cart version, but the rom release version I would also be up for (since I have a Skunkboard).

DrTypo > I don't think skunkboard support eeprom save ? You will have to restart the game each time :/

The BJL version is not possible, It's already hard to fit the game in 4Mbytes cartridge ! (more than 100 pictures, sounds and sfx ...)

The price 50€ is approximate, maybe it will be cheaper depending on how much cart will be ordered.

Sorry to sound daft, is there a thread for this game somewhere?

 

Oh, and if it's interesting, I vote cartridge all the way baby! Makes it more like a 'bought one' (",)

I must admit I had hoped for a lower price for a Jaguar version because the Jagware flashcart was announced to cost less than 15 Euros (parts only) last I heard... so I expected something in the price range from 25 - 30 Euros for a game like Elansar with box. :(

 

That said, why don't you offer different versions? I would still be interested in the PlayStation-version for example, but I wouldn't want Jaguar players to miss out either... so maybe you can produce versions for all systems?

 

Price to make a cart game is not cheap. even if the pcb is cheap the box + white inserts for the nice box, manual, cart shells, time for soldering/assembly and programming of the boards/chips

 

Im currently in the middle of obtaining parts for a cart release using atari NOS (new old stock) cartridge pcbs, eprom chips, and shells and it gets pricey pretty quick for even a small amount of cartridges...

 

If zerosquare gets those flash carts lined up and through a manufacturer that will adhere to their standards then i think all future developers (and current ones) will definatly have a cheaper alternative for getting the games out to users that want to play them. Workload and cost will both be dropped.
