Discussion in 'Unreleased Games Discussion' started by ASSEMbler, Feb 2, 2005.
well 1 journey ended but it has started another
You know what? I think this thread, out of all the discussions on this site, truly embraces the spirit of the ASSEMblergames community. Even though the disks didn't contain M3 it was a wild ride. It took a collaboration of many people to get as far as we did, and I think the unity that was shown throughout this process is a testament to what we have here on this site. It was a three year long adventure, and I don't know about everyone else, but for me it was a great experience--checking back here on this thread to see the developments made. Truly for me, this has been the defining experience of these forums. So thank you guys, all of you. It was one hell of a good time
Those disks could be master disks. You might not have found mother 3,
but you might have something nice still.
As to the others, I suspect you'll need a Japanese F-zero cartridge
to confirm my suspicions.
You could be really fucking lucky and find something if you slapped a
zelda cartridge on.
3 is san
I can't think of too many people with blue master disks at nintendo.
quick someone send corey corey a 1.0 version of Japanese zelda and a copy of Fzero!
okay, now we know thanks for all your time!
and now you have the perfect dev setup
Any chance you will be ripping them and providing private distribution of them?
I'd be currious to analize dev DD images. I plan to get back into my DD debuging durring xmas (gf away so I have tons of free time).
h: Man, what a shock!!1
I detect the slightest hint of sarcasm..
I think the whole thing was somewhat overhyped, but who would have known?
The story won't be over until corey figures out if there's anything at all on the last two discs.
Good job, corey. I'm still amazed at what you were able to do to get what you needed for this. Let's hope the exploration continues
Well, consider this:
If corey didn't take this risk the disks might have ended up in some collection and never checked for their content.
Well said. It truly goes to show that, even though it took long, we were able to end this with the help of the community. :clap:
This whole thing strikes me as a 'win-win' situation, granted corey didn't get what he had 'hoped' for, but the process gained him a whole load of equipment and knowledge that far outweighs the value of any perceived 'loss'.
Not to mention the demos are still cool, and a mystery's been solved at least.
*Gazes dramatically into the distance* But the Mother 3 beta IS out there...
Corey, dont listen to them - you had a great experience with N64 dev! Thats more than a good reason for doing it alone already .
OT: Buying "N64 dev" things doesn't count as "N64 dev". Technically now he has to POTENTIAL to carry out "N64 dev". Dumping disks also doesn't count as "dev" however writing an original "Hello World" would.
As i see it : dev is made of 90% programming and 10% dev kit use, where in "use" you count the time you spent on it too.
For being able to program on N64 you need to be able to set up a kit, like in every single system. Just following manual takes time. And this gets into the 10% mentioned before.
As "using a dev kit" i refer to actually doing something with it when it runs, just like "going by bike when you sit on a bike and roll down a hill without hitting the pedals".
I just wanted to resurrect this thread again because of the fantastic journey it contains. Those who have not read it should grab a beer/coffee and start at the beginning.
I do wonder what was discovered on Disks 1 and 3... did we ever find out?
I'm not sure if ressurecting threads on this forum is against the rules, but thanks anyway, it was a epic thread, and I've read all the pages. I actually do remember this "quest", but I think I read it on a blog (I presume the blog is from the guy who had the discs) a long time ago.
You can find the conclusion in that thread:
The disk ended up containing sim city and mario artist
Ah yes, the two disks that initially couldn't be read turned out to be 2 copies of Doshin The Giant.
