Hey all. I recently dumped this pretty obscure game.
Here's the story.
Here's the game.
Thanks for taking on the challenge. I stumbled onto this because a friend sent me a link to the Kotaku story about it! It still amazes me that magnetic media can be reliable after all these years. I remember C-64 disks getting damaged all the time, so I'm thankful that people are jumping through the hoops to save these old obscure games.
Wow, that is insanely impressive, bordering on obsessive! Thank you for your hard work!
aitsu124 from the write-up here, did some more videos on it here: and here:
I remember the response on Nintendo Age to this when you were initially trying to rally support, which basically summed up to "lol you stupid kid, no one cares." The internet really can be full of jerks sometimes..
Thanks for the effort involved to get this properly preserved.
They were at first, but they did end up slowly coming around to it. I only revealed by age once they had warmed up a bit (and someone had also specifically asked me). After we won, I actually did get a few supportive comments. But yeah, the first several people that saw it were suspicious and mocked the whole situation. I understand the suspicions, but especially seeing as I revised it soon after to explain that payment wasn't going to be collected unless we won they really overreacted.
Also, I have a bizarre issue on XMillenium: when I try to load save states, the emulator crashes. This only happens on my 2016 Windows 10 laptop, not my old Vista computer. Does anyone know what could be causing this?
Hey, great work!
Did try to play the game but my X1 will not boot it :-(
Drive ID is set to 3 = external drive right?
How can i set it to 0/1 for the interal ones?
