    FUNDING GOAL MET! QUADFORCE HAS BEEN RELEASED AND WILL BE UPDATED!
    TO AVOID ANY FUTURE QUESTIONS, AND TO MAKE IT CLEAR...
    DIOS-MIOS AND QUADFORCE WILL NEVER BE MERGED

    Update 7: USB!
    A small update, hence the '4.1', but a significant one nonetheless!

    Get it here!

    ORIGINAL OP AS FOLLOWS:

    ...if adequate funding is met.

    After contacting Crediar over Twitter (personally) the other day about any chance of having a new QF released if a donation pool were to be started, I got a reply from him just now

    [​IMG]

    500EUR is a fair sum of money (Just under 700USD/AUD) but there have been very successful campaigns for all sorts of things (Last I checked, the 3DS hack one was about 50% there), so who knows where this could go.

    Personally, if I had the cash to spare I'd cover a fifth of this myself, but no luck so far in that department. So I turn to you, GBATemp. This is the only chance we may have to get Mario Kart Arcade GP 1/2 WITH saving and F-Zero AX running on Wii, on top of any and all future updates.

    We've been taunted and teased countlessly through YouTube, but it's time to make it a reality.

    Thoughts, anyone? Would you donate if a donation pool was created?

    Total: 199.97/500EUR

    UPDATE
    Crediar has been away this past week, so my tweets to him only just got acknowledged.

    Two interesting developments have occurred. First, how to go abouts donating to Crediar:
    [​IMG]
    (click here!)

    Secondly, Crediar suggested a very reasonable method as to how the donations will work
    [​IMG]

    So now we have progressive milestones, with the first reward being AX support!

    This has solidified my donation (I might go do it now!). I'll keep updating with more and more news as it develops, in particular how the reward milestones will work!

    UPDATE2
    The rewards list is in!
    • 200EUR - AX Support
    • 400EUR - CARD support
    • 450EUR - USB Support
    • 500EUR - Any and all future updates to QuadForce
    A bit of an increase for AX support, but don't lose hope! If we band together, we can make this work!

    UPDATE3: AX
    Update 4: TomR got boost power!
    Yes, that was read correctly. TomR donated a whopping 250 Euros, boosting the total up to 448.97EUR. This unlocks Tier 2&3, and brings it dangerously close to Tier 4. But...

    Update 4.5: Cyan to the Rescue
    Cyan, the big help that he is all DIOS-MIOS related problems that come, donates 50EUR to the already high total! Bringing it up to 497.67EUR (After PayPal fees). The addition brings us JUST close to the end!
    And hey, Crediar, if you're reading this, maybe you could look into a good man's wish? :P

    We're almost at the end of the line! The light at the tunnel is almost in full view! The train tracks are coming to an end! And other 'We're almost done' related phrases!

    Update 5: CARD
    [​IMG]
    Yes! It seems the day is here! Another update to Quadforce, this time addressing the issues on newer systems AND adding CARD support!
    For those who don't know, the MAG CARD was a card, dispensed from Mario Kart Arcade GP 1, 2, and F-Zero AX that allowed for saving!
    Yes, this means it is now possible to save your progress in Mario Kart Arcade GP 1&2! Isn't that just exciting? No need to worry about the fact that half an hour or so of your work is now gone!
    "8Bit, what about F-Zero AX?"
    Not to worry, friend! Crediar is already hard at work on AX's CARD support, in fact he's already gotten it working well!
    What's left now? Well, I don't know. USB support will be coming soon, and after that it'll probably just be a few fixes and extra features.

    As always, an extra big thank you to everyone who helped make this project possible! Thanks, and thanks again!

    Update 6: Virtua Striker!

    I'll pass. I don't have the money to throw away towards this.

    But the question looms, what if he only gets $485? Will he refund it all or just take it and leave and not produce a damn thing? I hate ransoms like this.

    I hold utmost respect for crediars achievements within the wii homebrew community, and feel he deserves whatever he can for his work, however I just dont think the interest is still there on this one - the moneys just not gonna happen

    In my honest opinion... if someone does indeed donate, i suggest not getting your hopes up for a release any time soon (that's if, he actually stays true to his word).

    To be honest... at the moment, this all feels like déjà vu to me. :/

    Edit: Thank goodness, that I'm prepared... just in case. ;)

    500 people need to chip in a quid and he has met his goal.

    I'd say Kickstarter?

    That's still a lot of money for a system on its way out the door.

    How dare people ask for money for spending hours of their time developing something for the rest of us

    The system could be 20 years old and it wouldn't matter so long as the technical skill required to make something like quadforce were still the same. What he's asking money for isn't the system, it's the time and effort put into making qf.
    That said, I also don't think he'll get 500eur any time soon. Maybe if he has a pool up for a longer time, he might have that much by the end of the year. Just looking at the 3DS decap fundraiser which likely has more people interested in it than this, and that's only just past half way...

    Well I'm fairly sure he enjoys it. I don't sell my apps, although I am nowhere near as good as crediar (I'm probably still in the "novice" category). Anyway, I think you missed my point. $500 is going to be much harder to reach than it would have been a year ago.

    Even 500 is a lot to ask, but I'm sure the community will pull it together at some point. Im just fine playing F-Zero GX with the AX enable hack.

    Why is crediar always the only one that wants money for his projects? Neogamma works fine for me. Where's daco taco when you need him?

    Did he asked money for sneek? What about preloader? I would like to know, cause as far as I know DM is the only project that got funded in this way. He has contributed more than enough in the wii scene, and given how most developers say this particular scene is quite hard to deal with, I would say that he is in his right to do this.

    Anyways, we aren't supposed to see quadforce after that incident with godlike, and I don't think this goal can be met without difficulty, so in the end, I think this thread will only work for the people that dislike crediar to vent their opinions.

    Nobody is crying. We're just discussing whether it's achievable.

    Anyway, I'm sure that crediar would prefer you save your money if you are jobless.

    Crediar make a lot (DM is only the last great work) for Wii.
    Crediar wasn't gone to beg for money on multiple channels or Forum: he only ask for some donation on Twitter.

    If someone want to donate something, can do it.
