    Just curious. What is this? I see a home made ink jet print on a printable Verbatim DVD-R disc. If the ISO exists out there, can't one just make their own?

    Thats the problem. The ISO DOESN'T exist out there. This is a late beta copy that I wanted to buy and dump online but alas, someone got his hands on it first and it will probably never see the light of day again. :(

    Ok. So it is just a home made disc then? The real quest is getting the image?

    It is a late beta. It was hand made but in-company. It was sent out by Acclaim to a spanish game reviewer who decided to sell his preview copies, betas and press kits on ebay.

    Well... okay. I don't know anything about it then. I'm just pointing out that all I saw was a Verbatim logo on the inner ring and it says DVD-R. So it looked home made.

    There's lots of disc based protos out there like that. Sure some are on more official looking discs, but others not so much. It's part of the gamble of buying protos for a disc based console, could be home made, could be official.

    More than you'd expect! :D
    Missing levels, missing music, low framerate, everything is highly compressed and bitcrushed, more glitches, you name it. However, most PS2 Turok betas contain debug menus which is why I wanted to get it so that I can browse through the unused content within more easily.

    You should post an email address since nobody can create an account on the forum.

    Also contact the seller on eBay and ask them to notify the buyer of the disc to contact you through eBay.

    No idea what you mean with "the forum".

    I asked him, but he keeps insisting that its illegal to do so. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
    Annoying.

    This website, assemblergames.com. Nobody can sign up here because account creation was disabled.
    So if the buyer is not a member here, he cannot reach you.

    I was not aware of this. Interesting.
    Well, the seller won't budge in terms of info so I certainly hope that the buyer finds this. He can contact me at this email: beetcellarchive@gmail.com

    Possible new candidate for the Ebay Hall of Shame? ;) :D

    The website was dead to begin with. Corrupt moderators, war between members in the community over small stuff, people getting bullied away, website being hacked, you name it.

    In my opinion, this might be the best option for this website. At this rate, most of the active and contributing members have left because they just couldnt take it anymore or got wrongfully banned. The website pretty much has no staff anymore to my knowledge aside from Kevin, the owner.

    But lets keep these posts on topic.

    I for one am thankful the guy with 13 posts (all of which were this week), who is clearly a vital part of this community came by to tell us how terrible it is.

    Kevin is still the owner. The sale was fake, as was the "company" to manage the site.

    I've been part of this community for years on other accounts, but have mostly been a lurker for the past years because I do not agree with most of the people on here. If you have a problem with me, take it to PM's instead of cluttering a topic with it.
    Please, lets keep this stuff on topic.
