    Heh. Thought it was an interesting tidbit. A new NES dump, perhaps?

    Those graphics look sick, especially for the NES.

    Looks like a homebrew put on a NES cart. Looks good though.

    Awesome, but why a regional lockout chip?

    This is genius. Me and Sonicslasher should develop a game for the SNES. I'm almost 100% sure it'll sell out.

    This isn't licensed by Nintendo is it?

    This is pretty sweet, I just wish I still had my NES. If I ever do learn programming and design a sick game, I might try to port it to the NES too =D.

    I'd pay for a rom of this from them. That is if the rom would play on NESDS.

    Required to make it work with official NES as they have a lock-out chip to stop evil unlicensed carts (though this was easily circumvented back in the day)

    I would grab this...actually buy it, if there weren't a lockout chip.

    Cmon guys, There is no reason for regional lockout. Especially for NES. And you're a homebrew developer for god sakes. get with it.

    That looks pretty cool, they should consider looking into a way to sell it digitally and securely.

    Read my post please? The NES was made before we had TVs capable of both PAL and NTSC encoding, as a result slightly different versions of each game had to be made, resizing the game's screen and refresh rate to meet the standards in each region. There HAS to be a region-lockout chip to get through the NES's License Checker.

    There are ways to circumvent the 10NES chip, and it was done in the NES's hayday...

    Not to mention the 10NES chip didn't exist in the NES 2 (top loader)

    The toploader is your best friend. My dad still has a toploading Nes and I still have a working Famicom in my closet (not sure where the FDS is and even if I find it, I can't play it since I lost the RAM cable a decade ago)

    Anyways the graphics are excellent for NES standards but I don't know about the gameplay.

    PAL/NTSC Encoding is probably the main reason.

    You can't afford to assume your customers will have a modded NES or a specific model of an official.

    Just so you guys know, though the creator said he was inspired by various sources, but perhaps the one of most note is I WANNA BE THE GUY.

    Yes. That I Wanna Be the Guy.

    For those of you who do wanna try it, a demo of the rom(from the guy who made it himself) does exist. You can get it here.

    I don't think this is against the rules, as it is just a demo and was put on the web by the creator, but if it is, I'll remove the link.

    omg awesome.
    I was having an argument with this guy the other day.
    He was saying all the old consoles and games are dead and I was saying otherwise
    This will shut him up.


    I thought you was better than this Guild [​IMG]
