I won't expect too much from this, it's probably just the final version we have with a few different bytes due to a different compiler version used to build or due to the changes we made to the source. But who knows! At least, in any case, this would be a 100% officially built, "clean" ROM. Also, the cartridge itself is already a huge find, since it's the first (final version of an) official Virtual Boy flash cart to surface!

Since this was once a NOA internal cartridge of Bound High it's not totally unlikely that a Dragon Hopper cartridge is in the same hands. However, since Dragon Hopper hasn't been around before, other than Bound High, this would probably be an even more "tricky subject". Let's see how the Bound High story continues and if the existence of another cartridge might eventually be revealed.

However, Cpt. F., in case your associate is willing to sell any other cartridges he might have, please PM me, I can forward you to people who would be willing to spend obscene amounts of money on those. ;-)

There was never any actual cartridge involved. All versions out there were built from the final source code obtained from one of the game's developers afaik.

Besides jojobean, I guess am not free of guilt of fueling the confusion, since I too have spoken of a cartridge once, like here: https://www.planetvb.com/modules/news/article.php?storyid=202 I am not sure why I did that but I guess I was either not allowed to or unsure how to communicate having the sources at that point in time.

Hmm, I wonder if this cartridge is the one that this article in Nintendo Power 10/2005 talks about :

I have discussed it with my associate and we are prepared to dump and release this ROM.

We are more interested in preserving and sharing this piece of history than profiting from it's obscure and potential high value.

The only way this can happen, though, is if the aforementioned custom dumper was shared and sent to me.

Please PM any details to assist.

Omg! Thank you Cpt. F. and his associate for deciding to give the rom for preservation. I look forward to trying at it out on my Pockulus Chip.

Thank you so much Cpt. F (and your associate)! People like you both are so important to gaming history and preservation. I hope the cart dumper can get to you ASAP.

Awesome news! Minestorm said either bigmac or BenjaminStevens probably has the dumper right now. I'll send them a PM

I have the cart dumper. I can pack it up and send it out, but not until next Saturday if that's ok.

If you have questions on how it works, please direct them to Mindstorm :)

PM me the details of where it's going and i'll make sure it gets there.
