In Pursuit of the Pink Panther Rom?

Recommended Posts

Fake!  I've seen a few photoshops in my day... 😛

 

Actually these are 100% real.  I'm quite jealous.  I hope the rom can finally be released now.

I have tried with mine. I would need to send it through the mail (which I won't do) or a plane trip to get a guy to accomplish the task.  Another option is to have the computer cartridge reader sent through the mail to me for a day or two so data can be obtained. I see that to be the best option... Just need someone to be willing to send it to me.  Tried to get that accomplished two years ago... and was told to wait. I'm willing, but it all depends on the person who owns the equipment.

This game is not easy to dump and even harder to reproduce. I really hope this works out and the masses can finally have access to play this game :)

This is a really dumb thought... but is there a chance you could just dump it with a Retron77?  Would that work?  I mean, you could either keep it, return it, or whatever...

No. The Retron 77 doesn’t actually save ROMs from carts. It loads then in to the emulator to play and then they are gone when it is powered off. Also the special hardware or additional chip(s) that is game uses probably won’t even play on a Retron. If this thing ends up getting dumped Stella is gonna need an update to even play it.

Are they both the same and are they the same versions that were reviewed?

Wow, I'd love to have the rom if it can be dumped.  I wonder what can be done to make it work on Stella?  I enjoyed the game when I got to play it.

I’ll tell you one thing, in all my years of collecting, I’ve never seen this many carts of an unreleased game coincidentally found by people over & over again. But of course, it’s just a coincidence, so don’t read too much into it.

It isn't actually that surprising, because of the custom chip.

It did at one point.  Whether or not it still exists is another question.

Thank you.  I was not aware that it had got past the artist impression stage.

Per my webpage:

 

Quote

Port of the Colecovision game of the same name.  Tarzan was developed by Wickstead Design (the same team behind the unreleased 2600 Pink Panther game).  The game finished, but was unreleased due to it requiring a special chip for extra memory.  A prototype of the game may exist with one of the programmers.  An in-game screenshot, picture of the box, and a manual all exist.

Tempest my gratitude.  Must confess been a while since I was on your site.  I will endeavour to try and keep abreast of your news in future.

There are 20 copies for sale in the marketplace right now for $75 shipped each. I'm guessing those came back around due to the fact that the binary could very well be released to the masses if all goes well with dutchman's copies getting dumped.

Is anyone buying the repro in Marketplace or are you waiting on the ROM dump? :)
