Hi Darryl

A digital release is easy....i pay and you send the final a78 file.....maybe a special note in the code,so if someone tries to sell copies,you can idenrify him.

Cause shipping costs in Corona times are damn high,i would also buy a digital copy

I am no releasing it. Al asked me if I'd like to release it through AA, so I am going that route. It would be really easy to remove a person's name with a hex editor. I think the Intellivision games will quit working if the checksum is different. The main reason I would like the binary ROM to be secured is more outside of AA. I wouldn't want one of the eBay scalpers getting a hold of it and taking away from the AtariAge sales. I get a lot out of this community, and I would like to give back.

Speaking as someone who has limited physical space and the choice of it being occupied by either hardware or software, hardware usually wins out.  You can't shrink the size of a computer, but you can certainly make software not take up shelf space if it's on an SD card 😉

Yes. I am in the same boat, and I love my SD carts. I have physical carts, but I prefer to reset and re-select.

You should sell physical copies only to start, and then when physical sales drop off naturally, release the rom for digital sales. 

 

I love my concerto, but you deserve to get paid until people stop buying it first. It doesn't take that long, this market is pretty small. 

Thank you. I don't expect to get rich, and I don't mind sharing with the community. My big concern is that I don't want to do anything that would allow the game to get on the eBay market before Al can get it into the store.

I love that it uses pokey, but part of me is curious what a 7800 Popeye would sound like if it was by the same people who did the official DK, Mario Bros., and DK Jr. ports. However, I certainly wouldn't prefer it to sound like that!

The original Mini-Game was all TIA. I am glad it wasn't the loud, obnoxious burp and fart noises from the official 7800 Nintendo releases. They make me cringe so badly.

Speaking of which, I wish someone would port DKII to the 7800.  It's such a rare upgrade to an arcade game made in the modern era by a "homebrewer"  Or at least something new but added to an arcade game as a kind of "plus" version while still keeping the look and feel of the original.

Well...

DK 2??

Oh....i know someone.....😉

If you're thinking of who I am thinking of, it's DK Remix, not DKII.

 

I have DK II and DK Remix in my arcade cabinet. DK Remix is novel. It's cool to have 4 new levels, but the levels are kind of dull and boring. DK Remix is awesome. It's like DK on steroids.

 

It's been awhile since I played DK II for the Intellivision. I purchased the ROM before I had an LTO Flash. The arcade DK II doesn't have 3 characters, so it doesn't allow climbing ladders with the hammer or jumping with the hammer. However, DK Remix has a blue hammer. Mario can jump when he has the blue hammer. Pretty cool.

If for no other reason...

 

Also - we all have the fully functional, if hard as balls demo!

Nice, I still dig physical releases.  I haven't done much with my 7800 as I was waiting for the XM module, and I think I have someone's 7800 flash cart somewhere, but I've never used it.  

Always good to support both the programmer and AtariAge so I'll keep an eye out for this in the store.

There's a demo on JS7800 emulator that allows the Novice (Rev F) version to be played. It's one less life than normal, so it requires point-pressing to get on the board. I kind of enjoy it. I'd play more often if there was competition.

Completely off topic - but was DK Remix ever released as a rom set, either for purchase or free? I can't seem to find any info. It looks awesome, but genuine DK boards aren't exactly something you can pick up on eBay easily.

IIRC, there was a demo version of DK Remix released as a ROM set, but it only contained the first couple of levels.  DK Jr. Remix never had a digital-only release, but I'm not 100% certain about that one.

 

Either way, support was only in HBMAME, not regular MAME.

There was a Halloween and Christmas hack released in the "Kong Klub." They were about the same, but they had holiday graphical elements. It was for a contest. It was shared for a contest.

I have not seen Jr Remix anywhere else. It's pretty cool!
