    An interesting aside: according to the screengrabs both DRX and djemotion have supplied, djemotion's version appears to have a loading screen which says 'LOADING' and DRX's version says 'OADING'. Not sure that's due to djemotion's version being corrected by a bootlegger or drx's version being shonky.

    Easiest way of clearing this up is to see what the disc that contains it looks like. If it's circa 1990s branded CD-R or company-labelled media, then it's more likely to be legit than a more recent style of CD-R, a more than 74min disc or an unbranded disc with marker scrawl. It might well be that you BOTH have original copies that look the same, and it's just a random occurrence that they've both ended up in collector's hands. Also, if other people are uncertain whether theirs is legit, they can use it as identification for further copies (such as is the cast with the suspicious Dreamcast betas that were just a certain ex-member copying onto genuine media).

    In the end though, it doesn't matter. You both put a beta up, and you both should be proud and not let the situation ruin what's awesome for (nearly) everyone.

    Care to post an image of the disc? I'm always curious to see the actual media it's stored on.

    I feel his pain, this is a real loss of value even if it was technically never theirs.

    I would say the following:

    1. was is stated as the sole copy?
    2. who is the source, as this seems unethical somehow.

    What I have to ask is this really something worth getting angry over. Money money blah blah blah. Money is what jobs are for, it's released and getting mad at people isn't going to change anything. I am interested to see the *original* though, not some random TDK CD-R.

    Technically there is no original. Andy told me, he burned several each week. However, they all just went into giant bins in the end.

    Also, thanks for the upload.

    I was playing it, and there are so many glitches. lol. I was able to walk under the map in one of them. Tricky to do, but possible.

    Betas arent always on pressed media. CDR can be the "original"

    i used to work as a games tester mate and i can assure you that most of the discs i used to test were cd-r discs and random makes too, 1 day could be testing on kodak discs and then another day Verbatim, another day TDK etc etc. even though it was the same game, they used whatever CD-R's they happened to have at the time (usually whichever was cheapest)

    the only times i ever really saw pressed discs were if the game used some form of protection and we were testing the PC version, we would have a pressed disc which was a KEY disc we could use to boot the game to test it out, they were not able to burn the protection onto CD-R/DVD-R discs (which makes perfect sense really ;) as thats what they were trying to avoid)
