The important question is, out of the extortionate HF money you got, how much of it did you send to MK ?

Yes that's me. It helps pay for my projects and free gear I give most devs who ask. Most of my projects these days are VB related. Don't get confused and think anyone lives on VB reproductions. It's not happening. As for eBay... its eBay. It's not the PlanetVB community. I'm also not forcing anyone to buy anything.

I'm in contact with some developers and not with others. If you feel I've stepped on your toes, send me a message and we can discuss it. You can send me a PM. A lot of devs also already have my personal email.

I don't really need to say this but I will just to clarify this once. I've given a lot of free gear to VB devs. Wired link cables, USB link cables, free carts for development, stickers, PCBs. I've even sent free Virtual Boys to people. The next one will be several free programmers. I give back as much as I can while still being able to move forward with new stuff. I do this for fun. When it stops becoming fun then I won't do it anymore.


Look, we definitely appreciate anyone who's willing to give back to the VB community. What's not appreciated is the sense of self entitlement to rip off others' work.

How difficult is it to ask someone if it's ok if you use their hard work for your own projects? I'm sure you've gotten a sense of how this community is, anyone would have gladly given you permission. In the case of Hyper Fighting, I'm sure even if you offered MK or Ben a cut they would probably decline, especially if you explain where the profits go. But you know what? Everyone would be totally cool with it then, because you at least asked and got the ok to do so.

How about the labels you ripped off? Innsmouth Mansion? Virtual Fishing english logo? Again, I know damn well the person who designed them would have given you the blessing to use them. But again, you didn't even ask.

Think about it. You work really hard on something and post it online to share. Would you rather:
A: Some guy copies it verbatim and sells it as his own, without asking and with zero credit to you, or
B: Some guy asks you if it's ok to use your work in their project, as long as you are credited. You give them the ok, and everyone involved is on the same page. No one has to find their work on some dudes cart he randomly bought off ebay.

Fair enough. I get everyone is upset about Hyper Fighting. Like I said, if you're the developer, send me a message. If you're not and just an upset collector or VB user, I'm not concerned.

As for the labels, many of those were custom designed for me. Many others are direct box cuts. Grab whatever you like and print them yourself. No one is preventing you from doing so. The Virtual Fishing one in particular was a custom design someone in the community did for me. So, no you don't damn well know.

I'm not going to post anything else here in the forums regarding this subject. I've said what I'm going to say about it.

Just for the record. Kevin can make as many repos of my games and sell them on ebay as much as he wants. That includes Virtual Fishing, Faceball Remastered, Fishbone and even GameHero if someone wants it. Snatcher would be a bit unfair for the buyer given it's current state.

Personally, I don't see the problem with selling HF repos but that's just me.

Edit: I'm not saying this because he sent me free stuff but because he's become one of the most active members of the community doing awesome stuff all of the time.

Maybe he should change the label art and not include the box and manual, since his copies are being sold to fool people into believing they are receiving the rare true copies. In the future fake copies will be able to be determined by the board color and design thankfully (people would be less likely to pay such a high price if they discovered their copies weren’t original run copies, just like releases on NintendoAge people want the original copies).

Not to say I actually care about my copy retaining any value, I just don’t like people fooling others in the name of profit. These people think they are buying the actual copies of the game that were talked about years ago on many gaming sites. They are unfortunately receiving replications, that aren’t described as such in the sales details (You actually lie in the details and call your replications from the same batch as the rare release).

$250 for a loose copy??? It was $200 for a complete in box copy (with portions of the sale being given to those involved, whoever they are) in the true release. If anything set a sale price at $100 “buy it now!” to make it available to everyone, instead of feeding to the ridiculous inflation.

I'm not trying to stir the pot, I 100% get where you are coming from, but I find it hilarious that we are living in a world where people get upset about a reproduction of a homebrew game.

What you guys fail to realize is this game took many, many years to develop. It was also very costly and paid for by Ben, all copies originally released were intended for donation.

This game could be had for $200, and he’s literally playing off his copies as the originals. But charging a bundle for his copies and not donating anything from his proceeds.

I find that to be pretty crappy. He’s made thousands off his reproductions that are attempting to perfectly replicate real copies.
