Just in case nobody here visits NintendoAge, a new user there is organizing a 50 copy run of SD Gundam Dimension War. He's also gauging interest for a French translated version of Virtual Bowling.

I was concerned so I decided to post about it here. Is he free to do this? Does anyone here know him? I don't recognize him. If this is alright, then at least this thread is here so you guys can get a copy.

Well it looks like Uncle Tusk is involved, so it's gotta be legit. They are also just doing the translated ones, not reproducing the originals. As long as they put a little mark on the package somewhere saying it's a repro I'd be ok with it.

The only point of Interest I took from that post is that he has a method for restoring VB cart shells to a like-new condition. I have some shells that I would love to fix up, which are either slightly scuffed or have writing on them. But I probably won't make an account just to ask him how.

As for making another run, there's nothing stopping them. And I wouldn't be so pretentious as to give a blessing. The translator of this game, however, should get some compensation for their work. Perhaps a kickback for every cart sold.

My only concern after reading that post falls from my wonderment of how the conversation began. Did he actually approach and ask about this reproduction or did the original conversation, perhaps, begin by discussing Hyper Fighting? Which leads me to wonder, if someone produces a new game and makes a small run, what's the stop other people from making a run and profiting on it? Nothing really except a ROM image. By writing this down, I'm not pointing any fingers or calling anyone a bad person, I'm just simply stating some thoughts from my head.

He did contact Ben (will be compensating him a percentage of every game), and he will also be using a completely new label and will have the words "Second Release" added to the box.

Reading the thread there the dude seems straight up. Also the Hyper Fighting rom isn't out there as far as I know, so I don't think that's anything to worry about.

Well, I should hope I would be considered 'straight up', gents and ladies. (Finally got the registration thing working).

If you and this PlanetVB community have any questions, I'm more than happy to answer them for you.

Interesting. I missed the original run too, and wouldn't mind a copy. Not sure what games I've got to offer up as sacrifices though, would have to check. Shame it's not the kind of thing you can easily put together yourself on your end, save on US shipping which always seems to be ridiculously expensive these days for some reason.

Australia? Yikes. Shipping from the US is going to be expensive. As for donors, Mario Tennis is the standard, as it's not a good or desired game (in most people's opinion), but there is the option of donating a US Jack Bros in return for TWO CIB copies and my own Jack Bros Repro (so you won't feel totally Jack-less).

Now that I'm capable of posting here, I've received a few PMs from members that would be interested in joining the buy, so I'm officially opening up the waiting list here:

1. NintendoAge ProtonX (Mario Tennis)
2. NintendoAge plaindulloatmeal
