I think every REAL collector would love a copy in any condition. Until today I have yet to part with any item in my collection and some have a decent value. Some may call this hoarding, but to me. Every bit I found or bought, has a story. Right now I'm starting to think of releasing a few of the more common items but that's only stuff that anyone could buy, and I have more than two of. No real collector would sell a gem like HF unless it was to save his family.

My point here is that the prices that the games go for on the internet are crazy. If the guys really want to sell the games then they do not have a bond with it and the asking price is way out of its league. I hope to catch a game some day... hoping to be approached by a mystery person who is so kind to share this unique piece with me, but I can tell you now that it will probably never be for resale no matter what the price is. Because I admire the items that I own and almost none are kept in shrink-wrap. Because then I can not enjoy the full experience the item gives. And thats what collecting is. Its not about money, but about a feeling.

And sadly, thats how I feel about the current copies. People who were the lucky ones should guard it with there lives. And feel honored that a mystery person found them special enough to make them part of this project.

There won't be any more full HF's ever. It's been a bit of a nightmare to be honest. I had threats from people, and Capcom definitely do chase up copyrights.

Street Fighter fans are nuts, Capcom too it seems.

Informing me they were sending my details to Capcom. That sort of thing.

I was suprised the game even got a limited release honestly. It was the best option not to make more though as being sued by a huge gaming company like Capcom would be disaster.

I always wonder what kind of person would do these kind of things (the threatening). I guess someone young who wants to feel powerful for a change.

I always liked that the vb community is not like that. Everyone shares their bit, whether it is making games, sharing source code snippets to enable others, pointing out auctions, repairing display and broken vb, writing books, making shirts, sharing scans, doing translations or just participating in the general discussions.

That's actually the reason why I'm still around. People are just nice here. No one cares if the same "my displays are broken" thread is created over and over again and no one gets tired responding.

One thing I know for sure though. This place would exist today without Minestorm. The Flashboy and all the reproduction carts made this place worthwhile. So thanks for that.

I'm staggered by this - were they threats that if you DIDN'T give one then this would happen? Very immature and foolish behaviour...

As Thunder said, Minestorm, I think we're all very thankful that you're here and while we're on the topic I'd also like to express long-term thanks and gratitude. Because of you, I can play my favourite game in the world in glorious red and black 3D!

By the way, Retro Gamer mag has a Street Fighter cover article this month - I was really hoping that Hyper Fighting VB would be in it!

Wow, some people. Luckily that's nothing more than an empty threat from some immature low life. Even if anything were to happen (which it won't) we got your back. You rock Minestorm, don't ever forget it.
