Attached to this post you will find Bound High with activated debug menu. I created this by compiling the original source code with a modern compiler and activating code that had been left out by the developers. The ROM might still be buggy in some parts.

The debug options are accessed from the start screen. I change the way they are accessed to be simpler.


While on the pause screen press:

Right Trigger + A: Brings up the Stage Selection. The Score will display your level selection. Left D-Pad controls level selection: Up = +1; Down = -1; Left = -12; Right = +12. A select the level.

Right Trigger + B: Brings up the Sound Test: The Score will display your song selection. Left D-Pad controls song selection: Up = +1; Down = -1; Left = -12; Right = +12. A will play a sound effect. B will play music. Song 16 and 19 are never referenced from the code, so I assume they are unused songs.

Right Trigger + "Right D-Pad" Up: Activates Auto mode (the cpu will play the game for you)

Right Trigger + "Right D-Pad" Down: Changes the difficulty between easy, normal and hard. You have to die to see the change

Right Trigger + "Right D-Pad" Right: Activates expert mode (nishume in code). After activating change the difficulty with Right Trigger + "Right D-Pad" Down and die. The game should now say expert

Left Trigger: Will slowly progress the game while on the start screen

What games exactly is he posting that YOU 100% entirely made of your own accord? I consistently see these projects where something was translated, something was hacked, something borrowed assets from legally released or in the case of Bound High unreleased games. In particular recently there was Space Invaders hacking peoples picture and name into the thing, a little tweaking here and there, but basically the same expensive Japanese only release being sold for profit.

That makes you a hypocrite. You really can't have it both ways complaining about someone else making profit off games they don't have a right to be selling while you do the very same.


Yeah, I suck. Sry

Long time lurker, but just had to respond after seeing some discussion regarding this.

No one holds the IP rights on these games in the community beyond the actual 100% developed home brew titles, those I agree should have authors permission to sell.

However no one in the community holds the distribution rights to the patched/hacked roms, in fact all files have been generously made available for free.

I don't see how anyone can be mad at a seller who is selling the carts with the roms, they have as much right to distribute them as Thunderstruck or anyone else (which is no legal right).

I understand time was spent translating, and it's of course appreciated however again no one but the original publishers (many of who still exist and defend their IPs) have the right to distribute and profit off of in anyway.

Lets be real here, is Taito ok with copys of Space Invaders being produced and distributed for $100? This entire thing could go a much different way if angry people start reaching out to IP holders in an attempt to get rom distribution and creation just shut down altogether putting this site itself in jeopardy for hosting such files.

It's very childish and somewhat odd to try and strong arm the community into attacking a seller by stating they will leave forever.


I get your point. I guess you have to be in my position to know how it feels. I’m actually not trying to get anyone to attack him or anything. I’m a 100% sure he will not stop selling my games. He claimed he’s doing this in the interest of everyone and I should be graceful. So I gave him a choice: free games for everyone or some money for him.

Hey Everyone,

I've lately noticed that the site https://www.vintex64.com/ is selling all of my games. Initially, I was going to ignore it but someone contacted him and made him ask all developers for permission to sell the respective games. I told him to stop selling all of them (which he initially did). We actually wrote some mails back and forth in which I suggest alternative ways for him to be part of this community.

However, he just waited and is now back to selling all my games and actually claiming I gave permission. I decided to not let this behavior pass. Thereby I will:

1. Stop all VB development as long as my games are in his store.
2. Delete every VB project and give away all my dev hardware if they are not gone by the end of the month and of course never return to VB development

Attached too this post you will find the original letter he sent me as well as the full unaltered and uncensored e-mail conversation we had. You will see that I gave him a heads up about the actions I'm going to take.

Please try not to convince me to do otherwise. If you feel like taking action you can try to convince the owner of vintex64 to take down the games. His name Lee Verkuylen and you can reach him through his company e-mail address: info@vintex64.com or his private e-mail address: leeverkuylen@gmail.com You could try contacting him through the data that is available about him on https://servicehostnet.com/domain/vintex64.com but he's living at his parents place and you might just reach them.

I will deactivate my patreon this weekend and refund people if they want to.

Cheers
Everyone

Edit: Attached mail conversation deleted due to mild privacy concerns. More.

[Release] Bound High Music and Sound Effects

Hey Everyone,

attached to this post you will find all the Bound High Background music and all the sound effects recorded from hardware. I managed to do this by recompiling the games source code after activating previously deactivated debug features. I will publish the results soon in a different post. As far as I can tell track 16 and 19 are not used from the code. Track 16 seems to be an alternative for track 5. Track 8 (the death music) has a nice easter egg hidden at the end.

Special Thanks goes to all my Patreons (especially to Randy Jeffery). I used the money to buy a set of audio and video conversion tools which made this quite a bit easier. I plan to use them on my youtube videos as well.

If you want to support me as well, you can do so here: https://www.patreon.com/thunderstruckProjects

Cheers Everyone
