Well I wasn’t looking for IKARI Warriors 5+ years ago and just want to play it on my system without putting down 100 bones. I saw this on the sale add in the store and figured there was nothing wrong for the inquiry.

“If you order labels of rare Atari 7800 games, we will add the text "REPRODUCTION CARTRIDGE" in small type somewhere on the label. This is to help prevent people from reselling these cartridges on eBay (or elsewhere) as the "real thing" to unsuspecting bidders”

 

Seems pretty cut and dry for me.

You're right, I should update that text. 

 

I'm fine making games that were never released, such as IKARI Warriors.

i Understand there are peeps out there trying to make a dishonest buck. But some games are extremely unattainable for someone like me that really just wants to play the game on the hardware. 
thanks for the response Al. And I understand why you choose not to.

If you had read the posts above yours you would have noticed this was already discussed when this thread was originally started in 2014. Ikari Warriors goes for less than $100 more often than you might think. $100 is more for a CIB copy. Be patient and you will find a reasonable deal soon enough. $35 to a high of $60 should get you a nice loose copy even on ebay. If you read the ad you would see it mentions ordering reproduction LABELS and not the cartridges themselves specifically and does so very well, "cut and dry" as you put it. Looks like Albert has to spell it out even clearer to avoid confusion by folks like yourself. I hope you find a copy on the cheap sooner than later and really enjoy the game. If you end up paying a little more for it, I can attest to it being worth it. One of the better games from the retail released 7800 games.

The past posts you were referring to talk about double dragon if that’s what you mean which isn’t a problem finding. When a listing states to provide a game binary and label art( with reproduction listed somewhere on the artwork for rare games) someone like myself does assume a game such as IKARI warriors would be an example of this.

 

If that purchase listing is only for creators making their own games then I guess I completely misread the sales listing.
Tried searching on the topic as to not trigger anyone. So much for good intentions.

Um - don't beat yourself up.  Sometimes there are rough landings in here.

 

I for one did not think the intentions of the "repro" cart were clear.  I'm glad this was clarified through this thread.  Thank you for asking, and thank you for finding a thread that already dealt with the topic.  You are a good AtariAge citizen ;).

That is 100% incorrect.  Al has access to all my PCB's, one of which can go up to 1MB.

I wasn't aware of that, good to know.

Albert, I'm a tiny bit confused.

Can you do a repro of Ikari Warriors?  I thought it was clear that you couldn't, up until this comment.  
Thanks!

*edit*
And I thought Ikari Warriors was a game that was released?  And exceeded 32K anyway?
Thanks in advance for any clarification!

You are completely justified in your confusion. In context, the quote certainly seems to be speaking of someone ordering a repro cartridge, and makes no sense otherwise.

Albert, thank you for clarifying. I'm new to this scene, obviously, but already I appreciate your hard work tremendously.
