    i dont think OBFB ever went into development, iirc all that was done was the script.

    Actually, what I was referring to was a test cartridge that utilized 3D polygons in a 2D platformer. It was to test platforming with the Super FX chip. It's not quite Super Mario 64 with SFX, but it was associated with development of the Super Mario 64 as a whole.

    Didn't Argonaut program the 3D platformer demo using the chip starring Yoshi or something? And then it turned into Croc for the PS when Nintendo turned it down and used the idea for SM64?

    Super Mario 64 came first. Argonaut wanted to make a 3D Yoshi platformer for the N64 in the style of SM64, but was turned down by Nintendo and was thus transformed into Croc.

    It's pretty clear that only Capcom has it. Unless someone else comes forward with a prototype...

    Nah, before it was released someone on here was showing it off apparently. Got spooked when Nintendo stepped in.

    Geist Force. Way before Assembler got ahold of it I would never shut the fuck up about wanting that game. Then when Assembler got ahold of it I was in a bad period of my life I was unable to obtain it. Finally a couple of years ago I obtained it off eBay. I still wish this game was finished. It's hard to put into words what was in my mind at the time and still is retroactively. It wasn't just the game itself but the UI, the graphics, and the physics truly told me like no other time before or since the future of gaming is here much like the Dreamcast hardware did. If I had the talent I would just make an indie game as close to GF as I could legally.

    Met Mr. Brown. Mr Brown worked on the xbox 360 Blades dashboard and was head Guru. he game me some disc that have all the coding and data from the AKQA Design dashboard, the 2004 alpha and beta Xbox 360 Dashboard, and the 1888 raw files.. PSD files, XUI. all sorts of stuff and when It gets compiled right I can run the beta dashboards for the xbox 360. I also have beta dashboards for NXE, not public dashboards, but the raw (behind closed doors) files. I do not believe he knew what he gave me till after the fact

    Super Mario World when it still had that weird-looking world map.

    Chrono Trigger design documents, so that we could put together a version with the content that was cut before release. Singing Mountain, the battle arena, whoever the 8th character slot was supposed to be, 1999 AD world map, ... Also, on the technical side, the extended version of Frog's Theme as an .spc file.

    Rockman Dash / Mega Man Legends beta. The game supposedly changed a lot.

    A final build of Star Fox 2 used to be on my list. It was finally leaked last year, so to speak.

    Some game updates / patches for old and obscure pc japanese / korean games whose websites are long defunct and that cannot be retrieved from archive.org waybackmachine.

    Some examples:
    Goku raku jongg patch 031010 (Goku031010.Exe)
    All patches for Topblade V: game used to connect to some updates server when starting the game. This no longer works.
    Mechanical brain (gameland version) update (mb-pr-up.lzh)
    Eternal Striker Operation R (v1.95): strikerr.lzh

    And many others. Maybe I'll do a dedicated topic about this.

    Any cool Phantasy Star proto. Early Phantasy Star for the SMS, or maybe the early PS2 for the SMS before it was moved to the Mega Drive?
    PSIV for Mega CD, or PSIV with the 3D dungeons... (the only existing image is a mock-up but one can dream..)

    Using the free hack that someone made. Good luck with that.
