I want No-Intro's opinion on something

Post by John Enigma » 15 Jan 2018 20:01

What is No-Intro's opinion or stance on new, aftermarket, "retro" games?

Games like the game bundled from the Nt Mini, Super Turrican Director's Cut, Kick starter "retro" games, or Retro-Bit's games, between other places where you can get these "new" games?

How come No-Intro doesn't dump these kinds of games?

I presume it's for the same reason we don't preserve homebrew games; it would be a nightmare for us to catalog. For every Tom, Dick, and Harry who makes his own poor quality NES game, puts it on a cartridge, and sells it to somebody, we need to buy the game, dump it, and DAT it. What if I only sell a couple copies of the game to my friends; does it still need to be preserved by us? What if it uses some obscure, custom mapper that will never be emulated?

We need to place a limit on what we want to preserve, and we've set that limit to games made during the console's lifetime that are not intentional pirates. That's not to say that all pirates, hacks, homebrews, and new games are useless from a preservation standpoint, but we don't preserve them.

I just wanted to post some serials of a few carts, so sorry, if i hijacked this thread, but this title covers my wanted title i would choose.

i think, just c&p my other text.

Mahjong (EUR) (NDS) - Serial on Cart: expected: NTR-AXOP-EUR, Serial written: NTR-AXOP-EUR-1

"found another one:
Gluecksrad Rev1 (Gameboy)"

"Tetris DX, GBC, Europe Version, EUR-1
Unknown?"

"The Flintstones - King Rock treasure island (DMG-FE-FRG)
i cant find the FRG suffix..."

This is just the ones by now. I think, i might go through my pile of carts again.
Picture upload failed one time, will try it later.

Super Turrican Director's Cut isn't really a new aftermarket game. It is more accurate to say that it is a prototype of the original Super Turrican game, which happens to have more content. I would definitely say it belongs on the No Intro list, along with Star Fox 2.

pictures still cant be posted, so i walk the other way:

https://picload.org/view/daaprlda/wp_20 ... o.jpg.html

https://picload.org/view/daaprldi/wp_20 ... o.jpg.html

Probably there is something to preserve, but i really need the help of a nearby dumper which i want to leave the carts for just dumping it. (But i need the games back then ;) )
