I was not expecting to read this news when I clicked on this thread. This sounds like it will be a fun project! I can not wait to see your results! Thank you.

I would swap out a few of my 1-off carts for new cases if the quality and price were right.

Are you saying you received a cart for $100 or less from the pre-order process everyone went through?

No offense and I am not trying to argue point-of-views, but I am in the exact opposite boat. I've never appreciated the secrecy and hoarding that comes along with prototypes and ROM dumps. Also, we lost some of the VB scene who openly stated it was directly related to this game and the drama that came along with it.

This game has caused nothing but drama for the VB scene. I am so happy the ROM is finally out there and Kevin is stepping up to release a re-programmable cart that will support it!

No problem! I am just providing feedback based on my eBay observations. My local game shop has 2 VB's right now and he wants $500 per system (w/o AC adapter). Sometimes you can bank on nostalgia.

I often see working systems (with everything you mentioned) sell between $120-200.

The price gap was much closer about 10 years ago. You could find everything you listed for around $100. Within the last 5 years I've noticed a price jump.

These are the prices I often seen on eBay for loose VB carts:
Wario Land sells for $10-30
Galactic Pinball sells for $10-20
Mario Tennis sells for $5-20
Vertical Force sells for $10-30
Panic Bomber sells for $10-30
Teleroboxer sells for $15-30

A fixed system is a plus. The AC adapter is a plus. 6 games is a plus! A brand new stand is a plus! If you represent it honestly, as you have done here, I think you could expect to get between $175-250. If you find the right gamer, perhaps even close to $300.

Hello. How was it fixed? (Solder, tape, baking, replacement parts, etc) Do you have a working controller and the eye shade? Does your system have the box & manual? Do your games have their box & manual?

Hello.
I've recently been informed that Kevin's VB Cart Programmer can successfully dump the Hyper Fighter ROM. It would seem that with this piece of custom hardware, this project would be extremely easy to complete.

If anyone can help me out who is either within an hours drive of me (doubtful -- reads like 25 of these may exist) or willing to send me their programmer... I would like to dump my ROM.

If you think you can help, please PM to start a discussion.
