Sorry, I didn't mean to make it sound like I was talking about any specific sale. In fact I thought that one posted recently was a legit copy, guy could have had 2, completely possible. If he keeps selling them then I'd start wondering =P

I just don't think it's cool when other peoples work is ripped off for profit. At least ask to see if it's ok, and give credit.

Actually I looked through the item history for the seller, the dude has sold multiple CIB copies, as well as many other repros.
Minestorm is right, I thought it was an original release because it looks identical to one. But no, I guess someone is ripping off all the assets, and reproducing them verbatim without credit to the people who originally made them. The real kick in the balls is the $425 premium that particular game gets over say a Bound High CIB he makes. If you're going to milk the market using other peoples hard work/investment, it would sure make it less of a dick move if maybe you contacted them and offered a bit of the cut, hmm?

To be clear, I have no problem with someone supplying the demand for a market. It's when sneaky/dirty tactics are used, like taking assets without permission, or doing so while also taking advantage of an items market price.

Sorry to tell you all but the seller is mellott124, if you look through feedback someone mentions him directly by name. Yes, the same guy that’s making the new cartridge dumper and programmer has also made and sold around 10 copies of Hyper Fighting.

He also contacted me on here before.

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.

The Mahjong game is Double Yakuman... T

here are other issues of this magazine scanned but this issue doesnt seem to be (the seller has other issues from around this time as well, so there might be more the site doesn't have scanned sitting within those)

I didnt see Double Yakuman listed in the unreleased games section. Is it listed elsewhere on the site?
