Area 51: $60
Star Wars: Imperial Assault: $40
Panzer Dragoon: $40
Millennium Falcon Challenge (Super Screen): $30
Indy 500: $30
Star Wars: Jedi Adventure: $10

$20 each for the rest, $15 each for two, or $10 each for three or more.

Area 51: $20

$10 each for the rest, or $5 each for two or more. I'll ship for free within the contiguous United States. I also have a loose Super Screen ($50), two loose XPG handhelds ($30 each), a sealed XPG with Jedi Adventure ($35), a loose head unit ($15), and a few loose Super Screen slides, one of which appears to a blank with a small red square on it (misprint?). I'll send a broken XPG for parts for free if anyone wants it.

In case anyone's looking, I found a sealed Independence Day in Germany on eBay this morning while gauging prices.

LED/LCD/VFD games can be simulated rather than emulated; the process entails photographing the LED/LCD/VFD screen (in the test mode which activates all art at once, if possible), recording all sounds, and then replicating the original gameplay as closely as possible, using the recorded images and sounds with entirely new code.

I know of three LED/LCD/VFD game simulation sites:

www.madrigaldesign.it/sim/
http://www.pica-pic.com/
http://www.handheld.remakes.org/

I also just found this thread from 2005 which links to various other simulators, most or all now dead links, but accessible by placing web.archive.org/web/ before them:

http://www.lemon64.com/forum/viewtopi ... 9740fdaf8978256e0c918b664

No one has ever simulated an R-Zone game to my knowledge, but it could be done using the same process. Ideally, they'd be simulated from both the HMD or handheld units, as well as from the SuperScreen, so players could choose between the red glowing graphics and the black (the SuperScreen slides could actually be used with either in a simulator).

I had noticed a text-only mention of Football on the MESS site, but assumed it was a mistake. Football may be even rarer than The Mask of Zorro! I'm surprised a 26th game has been found, and now wonder if there are more. Any additional games would probably be European exclusives, or unreleased prototypes. Where did you find the seller, vbsteffel, if not on eBay? I'd like to buy another copy if they find one. I've bought all but two of my games on eBay (including several from Greece), plus Millennium Falcon Challenge from Trade-N-Games in Fenton, Missouri, and Imperial Assault from Games Station Retro in Beirut, Lebanon. I'm surprised Tiger exported the R-Zone far and wide during its short run. It seems to have failed everywhere.

I acquired Indy 500 sealed for less than $20 today, bringing me up to 18 sealed + 2 loose games out of the 26 known. I still need Independence Day, Men in Black, Road Rash 3, VR Troopers, The Mask of Zorro, and, of course, Football, either sealed or loose, and Mortal Kombat Trilogy and The Lost World: Jurassic Park sealed only, although I still think The Lost World: Jurassic Park and The Mask of Zorro may have been pack-ins only; I've never seen them on their own cards. I haven't seen cards for VR Troopers or Football, either.

I still plan to scan all the cardart and manuals but haven't yet opened any of my sealed games. I've been waiting until I acquire a complete collection. I may stop waiting because progress is so slow, although I suppose 18 sealed + 2 loose in eight months is actually good for R-Zone collecting. I think I've spent around US$700 so far.

Regarding SuperScreen games, I have NiGHTS Into Dreams sealed with a SuperScreen slide, and Star Wars: Millennium Falcon Challenge sealed with and without a SuperScreen slide. I also have several other loose SuperScreen slides, and have Panzer Dragoon sealed without a SuperScreen slide but have seen it sealed with one.

I just acquired Panzer Dragoon sealed, so I'll be able to scan the manual (and card art) for everyone after it arrives. I'm now at 18 (15 sealed, 3 loose) of 25 (apparently, my count was off by one in an earlier post). The eBay lot including Apollo 13 arrived yesterday, so I can scan those as well.

Pictures would be fine.

If you're still looking, the eBay store I mentioned has four sealed copies of Virtua Fighter 2 left. The seller sold me one and two other R-Zone games for $18 each through Best Offer (plus $14 combined shipping from Greece to Texas).

I have Virtua Fighter loose, but not Virtua Fighter 2.

Perhaps this person can help you?

Dreammary do you need a sealed copy of Virtua Fighter (I think its 2)? I've got an extra copy for $20.


Do you have the Panzer Dragoon boxart and game, or just the manual?

I, too, am interested in creating a manual and cover database! One is sorely needed because this system is so poorly documented. The manuals must be sandwiched between the cardboard in the blister packs (reading the backs of the packages, I see that they are indeed). I haven't opened any yet, but will eventually. I want to keep the packaging as intact as possible, though, so I think I'll use a razor around the inner edges of the backsides, hopefully allowing the backs to become flaps so that the contents can be reinserted.

A few members of the MESS are glacially progressing on R-Zone emulation, but I think it's still many years away. Simulation might be easier than emulation, but very few people work on simulators and no one's working on any for the R-Zone.

As of this writing, this eBay store has six sealed mint games available. My three most recent acquisitions came from them. They're all priced at US$25 each, but I got them for $18 each through Best Offer, and they combine shipping.

Greetings! I recently began R-Zone collecting. Here's what I have and am looking for. I have 15 (11 sealed) of the known 25 (plus 5 rumored) games. Does anyone have something I need that they're willing to sell? I'm willing to sell or trade the few duplicates I have. Virtual_Link, do you still have Virtua Fighter 2? Rebel Forces sealed is my top priority since I'm primarily a Star Wars collector and that's the only Star Wars R-Zone game I don't have sealed. I'm also trying to discover exactly how many SuperScreen slides are available. I have the one for Millennium Falcon Challenge and know Area 51 and Battle Arena Toshinden have them. Any others? And did Jurassic Park and Zorro (and any others) not receive standalone releases? I have only ever heard of them as pack-ins.

Apollo 13 - 1x sealed
Area 51 - 1x sealed, 1x loose
Batman Forever - NEED
Batman & Robin - 1x sealed
Battle Arena Toshinden - 2x sealed, 1x loose
Daytona USA - 1x sealed, 1x loose
Independence Day - NEED
Indy 500 - NEED
Judge Dredd - NEED (probably doesnít exist)
Jurassic Park: The Lost World - NEED sealed (may be pack-in only), 1x loose
Men in Black - NEED
Mortal Kombat 3 - 1x sealed
Mortal Kombat Trilogy - NEED sealed, 1x loose
Nascar Racing - NEED (probably doesnít exist)
Nights - NEED
Panzer Dragoon - NEED
Primal Rage - 1x sealed, 1x loose
Road Rash - NEED (probably doesnít exist)
Road Rash 3 - NEED
Star Trek - NEED (probably doesnít exist)
Star Wars: Imperial Assault - 1x sealed
Star Wars: Jedi Adventure - 1x sealed, 1x sealed XPG pack-in
Star Wars: Millennium Falcon Challenge - 1x sealed, 1x sealed w/ SuperScreen slide, 1x loose
Star Wars: Rebel Forces - NEED sealed, 1x loose
Virtua Cop - NEED sealed, 1x loose
Virtua Fighter - 1x sealed, 1x loose
Virtua Fighter 2 - NEED
VR Troopers - NEED
Waterworld - NEED (probably doesnít exist)
Zorro - NEED (may be pack-in only)

HAVE 15 overall (11 sealed, 4 loose only) out of 25 known + 5 rumored.

NEED 14 known + 5 rumored (10 known + 5 rumored sealed or loose, need 4 sealed that I have loose only).

Also need SuperScreen slides for Area 51, Battle Arena Toshinden, and however many others exist.

Looking for a headset and SuperScreen (want sealed, not loose) and maybe even the ultrarare DataZone model (sealed or loose), though I donít care much about that one since the screen is too small. Have two XPGs, one sealed, one used.
