Thanks to post a reminder and the link here. I ordered mine today and almost missed the fact it is available due to heavy workload... ;-)

Sorry for bringing an old thread back from the dead, but I find it appropriate to continue the discussion here, unless the main discussion has moved elsewhere.

Simply put, I'm curious about the current repro situation. Just as a disclaimer, this is in no way criticism or impatience of any kind. I vastly appreciate the effort put behind every release regardless of it happening once a few years or not at all anymore.

I've heard something about a coming end of raw materials, which is sadly understandable. Are there any plans on future repro releases or has it come to an indefinite halt after Fishbone?

I check the front page and Tusk's shop regularly as a preventive measure from missing out on any eventual announcements being made elsewhere. Every new release helps breathing new life into this system and as a gamer/collector nothing is more exciting than a physical homebrew/prototype/unreleased game for this system. Personally I find no interest in the translation repros, but the initiative is golden either way.

That's it I think. Partly appreciation, partly curiousness about the state of the repro situation.

Even though I seldom post, I'm profoundly grateful for this community, so keep it awesome.

I'm not involved in making the repos but I was wondering what games you would like to see being released? Most homebrews and prototypes have been done.

The only thing I can think of is a translated Virtual Fishing. However, that one is not fully translated yet (because I'm a lazy bastard). Also, it is a horrible game.

Well I have no new games in mind. Just wanted an update on the matter and if the planned list of new games have been worked through at the moment then that's as good as anything. Dragon Hopper would be a grail of sorts. I'll keep dreaming for the ROM to surface. :)

Additionally, I don't know how much insight you have in the code or if you're working more graphically, but you don't happen to have any info on the requirements for cathing all the fishes in Virtual Fishing (or if some are glitched)? I've managed to complete every single VB-game except for that one, fishing for hours and in many different ways, but the game still only cycles between the same few fishes, with many of them never even being seen no matter what I do. I can't seem to find any info on the matter either. It's such a stale game indeed, but this has always bugged me.

I would LOVE if you made the next act for snatcher. The first act was so good. I had never played that game before your port and it was awesome! I'd love to see how the story continues.

Yeah, I really need to get back to it. It's been almost a year.
