    he will have to make his copies unique, maybe with a sonic-cult label or something similar...I fear a Thrill Kill syndrome...

    I don't see why, unless he's burning his copies on Mega CD-R media.

    Also, I don't see why he'd put a CulT label on it, since CulT is down right now, and he's already mentioned Simon's site. If anything, it'd be an SWS2B label.

    The bids remain the same right now, with this mysterious guy no one has ever heard of at $3,000 and a very well known, trustable (and completely anonymous) collector at $2,500. If anyone wants to outbid either of these, or even bid something in-between in case our high bidder doesn't follow through, you have exactly two hours.

    Very tempting, but I'll leave this one up to the Gods of the Internet.

    I just hope the seller read through this thread and the other thread to have a good laugh at the mayhem this sale thread caused:smt042

    Uhh, is this our seller's hand?

    If so, it would appear Sega already got to him... he only has 3 fingers!!!

    Was this developed by Sega US, then?

    I have another person who says he can chip in $200, so that makes $1900 on the group bid. I told him to post here but he might not see it before the deadline.

    Do me a favor, for the sake of security please post a pic of it running with "assemblergames.com" on some paper in front of it.

    I've had a lot of requests for you to do that, even at the late hour.

    Personaly i would be very very careful about dealing with this seller that doesnt exist. Im guessing TRE isnt taking responsability if you get screwed in this deal...

    Wouldnt like to see the look on your face if you end up getting a blank cd-r. Be very specific about getting as much information as possible from the seller.

    E.g. address, phone number and so on.

    Well, seeing as how the "auction" ends in a half hour, and the guy isn't even home before then, that's impossible. "Buy me" was my idea, he originally wanted to put "lostlevels.org," but I said I didn't want to be associated with it. And like I said in the first post, further proof is available to serious buyers. No one has taken me up on that, though.

    I've nearly been screwed in a situation like this before, but didn't... long story...

    Perhaps the person's face would somewhat resemble this: :D

    Well, like I said, this guy is most certainly a ex-Sega employee. He knew things that the general public doesn't. And the game is certainly authentic. The "further proof" I've offered is a video clip of the demo running, which he didn't want posted on the internet anywhere. Hence the "for serious buyers only."

    Yeah it doesnt make any difference if hes a ex-sega employee or not. He can easily rip anyone off. Some of the people i would least think would rip someone off in this forum HAVE!


    I strongly recomend anyone who is interested in buying this to get as much detail as possible from the seller. If he is not willing to give you his name, home phone number and so on DO NOT DEAL WITH HIM!

    If you have any doubts POST on the forum or pm someone (mods if you wish to not post in public) and see what we can sugest.

    If you get ripped off dont say we dint warn you.

    Personaly i wouldnt touch this with a barge pole if he gets dodgy about things. 3rd party sales are never the best idea. Im not sure the reason why the seller wishes to keep it so secretive... its not like sega dont know he worked there.

    Yeah, but they don't know who he is, and until they do, can't do anything about it.

    I got another person with 200 British pounds, which is around $365. So that's $2265.

    Do we have enough people here who are willing to pay $40 for a copy to make $335? If so, then we've got $2600 or more as a backup bid.

    No The Red Eye its quiet clear sega can easily identify him if they wish. As your previous post mentions....

    Im sure all it takes is a look at some documents or asking around employees.

    It seems to dont really reply to my posts either stating that the seller will be providing information of who he is to the buyer or not... which makes me think he might not be doing so...
