Still curious as to what that Wily Wars cartridge was all about? Thanks to PRC reader Hypercoyote, we have our answer. Before the auction was taken down/ended, Hypercoyote contacted the seller, who had this to say:
"It's an eprom with custom packaging, everything looks like a real sega release, but it only came out in the europe and japan. I didn't do it (solder), I bought it off someone from the sega-16 forums. From what I can tell it uses an eprom with the euro wily wars on there with the game genie region patch applied, then soldered into a nba jam tournament edition game or similar since it uses a specific type of save feature. He made the art and manual himself."
Simply put, the cartridge was homebrewed--a fine homebrew at that.
Thanks for the info Hypercoyote and Jesse.
Very, very cool. It really looks like the real thing... or at least it would if a "real thing" existed. :PReplyDelete
Even if it's not real, it's still pretty freaking cool. Actually, that might make it better. It's unique!ReplyDelete
Oh great.. now he is a thief.. A nice homebrew for n00b fan who thought it is a real thing existed to buy. What a rip off. He is a thief and wants our money for himself instead gave up his real cart which turn out to be homebrew.ReplyDelete
What ? YOu guys think it is cool ?? Dont you know that he is going to steal our money even thought you smiled ? What a rip off!
I prefer to think of it as you are buying the time and effort someone put into making it. Would you call it a ripoff if someone sold one of those AirMan figure mods on ebay?ReplyDelete
That's cool. It's not a ripoff-- it looks professional and is a neat mod. :DReplyDelete
