    If that's the case you could have made this thread in the rare content/nintendo sections.

    Regardless, pictures of the disc are the main thing I want to see, and mainly as a form of validation. We've had many ruse cruises over the years so you know.

    So like, he made it clear he doesnt plan to sell it. You can calm down on the offers, my dude.

    @bowser22 could you provide any pictures of the disc for us?

    Yeah. Sit down and take a look around in the game and document some things that can be different, maybe record some footage if possible, and post it in the Rare and Obscure forum! :)

    Yeah, some pictures of the disk itself would go a long way. Anyway, as for determining the value of it, i think the best thing we can do is try to put a date on the prototype by trying to make connections between this prototype and various media shown during development, whether that be screenshots or videos.

    If you ask me, i think it likely comes from after the E3 2002 trailer. It was still using a placeholder logo, and i doubt that they would use a red placeholder logo, when the game itself already has a full logo, a golden one even, available. I have a feeling they would at least use a golden version of the placeholder logo. Though i may be wrong. Don't ask me about deciding the value though. I have absolutely no expertise with these kinds of things and this is the first time I've seen one of these things unravel personally, much less been involved in any fashion. Also i activated the keyboard mode that autoselects the letter i click on help i keep forgetting how to deactivate this god damn thing

    Personally I'd go through the game and look for major differences. Look at a speedrun, and compare larger maps. The more changes it has, the better the value will be. Even if you only went through a portion of the game, there's lots of indicators through gameplay to give an approximate age.

    Hell, even just posting a video of the first 20-30 minutes could give us a rough idea of where the build is at development-wise.

    What Miloxydia said, basically. Give us pictures of the disc and a video of the first half an hour or so, perhaps up to the Forsaken Fortress. Doesn't matter if you record it offscreen but if you can record the screen itself, even better.

    People have been asking for pics. But yeah. A quick pic of disc should be easy to make happen, if not possible to record gameplay. :)

    Disc pictures are easy enough to fake though too. Like Ive said, extraordinary claims of prototypes need extraordinary evidence. Nothing in these pictures couldnt be faked.

    Because as you know as much as anyone, people send PMs with offers despite things not being a sale thread. Why bother with proof and evidence if you can make a quick buck privately? Now, not saying that is the case at all, but I could easily get a blank NR and write on it, or even get an NR with data and easily remove the marker and write "Zelda" on it. There have been too many fakes over the years, particularly with Zelda games, to where everyone should use caution until there is substantial proof posted.

    To go further than that. I could write zelda with debug enabled (see links in this thread already) to a blank NR disc

    That too. And we've seen people do similar with GD-rs in the past.

    We know that this is fake as shit.

    >Blurry tv photos
    >Title screen only shown
    >Debug mode/text can easily be enabled in the final retail version of the game
    >shitty CONFIDENTIAL string slapped in the title because fake, no other leaked Nintendo protos do this
    >no pictures of the cd that contains this “proto”

    It’s really easy to hack Wind Waker. This “find” is a fake.

    I think it's possible to have well-reasoned doubts about something without being totally disrespectful to the author of the post.

    Agreed

    If you could be more wrong I'd give you a medal honestly.
    Modding to that degree is magnitudes more difficult than you think. I'm not saying it's impossible, I'm saying it's really hard. Also nice first 2 posts. Glad you started out on the bad side.

    I'm actually more interested in these Freedom Fighter builds.
