I tried searching the whole site and cannot find the ROM to Bound High. If there is not a ROM available, then why are there passwords listed in the game's profile? I'm confused.

The ROM isn't available, but one or more people have a cart, so since the passwords are known, I guess KR155E decided to post them up. I don't see why not... might as well compile as much known information about anything VB related as possible.

So, if people have carts, why not dump the ROM so everyone can enjoy it?

That question has been asked and argued MANY times... just look around on the forum a bit.

I've looked on the forum and it seems like the people who own Bound High don't want it to be dumped because the value would drop dramatically for the people who own it. My question is why is that true? It seems like it wouldn't affect the value at all because the people who have the cart would still own the cart. I'm sorry, I didn't want to open a new topic for a question that's been posed a lot of times, but I'm curious as to why the value would drop. I would understand if you wouldn't want to dump the game because your precious game's value would suddenly be nothing.

Yeah doesn't make sense to me, the collectors will still pay crazy amounts for the cart even if it's dumped.
Share the wealth.

Whoever has the boundhigh cart probably paid a lot of money to get it, if you paid loads of money for a game would you then just release it for free.

Yeah, basically someone paid a lot of money, some was for the actual cart, but most was because it's generally not available to buy, play, download, etc. An official Bound High cart would be a Nintendo EPROM cart with a couple EPROMs. There were several official EPROM carts on Yahoo Japan that sold for ~$150 a while back, so if you had the ROM, all you'd have to do is burn the EPROMs and pop it in one of those carts and you have an "official" Bound High.

It's similar to what the guy w/ the dev disks said... he knows the disks won't be worth what he paid as soon as he releases them, so he wants to recoup part of the money from donations. Of course he only paid ~$350... imagine paying $3500 or more.

I think there's also the hope of trade bait as well... imagine someone comes along with a Dragon Hopper or Zero Racers cart, and really wants to try out Bound High. If someone releases the ROM, the guy w/ the other protos is happy. If he doesn't, the other guy has to track down someone with Bound High, and offer a trade.

These are just a few scenarios I've heard over the years in various collector communities. Keeping protos private isn't just a VB community thing, it's done in all communities. If you really want more reasons, go to http://www.digitpress.com/forum/ and search there. Arguing about it doesn't really help though, since ultimately it's up to the ones w/ the protos to decide what they want to do w/ them.

I can understand all the above reasons for keeping it private, but it is too bad a "Demo" or something couldn't be released that would just be the first level or something. If you could find where the levels were stored, all levels after level 1 could just be 0XFFed out. Doing that would keep the original rom worth a lot but still allow the common person to enjoy the experience. I know it isn't practical and wouldn't happen, but that game looks really cool!

Yeah, a demo would be cool, or even a remote VB, where you could play a virtual VB where you just have access to the display and controls. Then it could be played, but access would be limited to just playing (kinda like demoing pre-release games at tradeshow kiosks).
