Game Boy / Strange Striped Carts
« on: April 21, 2021, 03:42:44 PM »
I've seen some strange looking striped carts on Taobao lately, and was wondering if anyone here knows anything about them. They have diagonal cuts along the tops of the carts, sort of like those old Zook Z carts that say "New GB Color" at the top of the cart. I've seen some of these carts that appear to have Li Cheng stickers, but some of them have other stickers that do not look like Li Cheng's work

Ok, I guess that confirms that GS-17E is real. Not sure if the guy who took the picture is on the forums, but if you are, big ups to you for finding this

Is the digimon game in your picture Digimon Pocket or Digimon Saphire? The sticker looks like the game shown on that Vast Fame multicart with Digimon Pocket, but if my memory serves me right that came on a black cartridge that said "New GB Color" at the top

Ok. Thanks for responding. Out of curiosity, what other games did gangfeng release, and how did they release the? Did they bundle them with their game systems?

Thank you. Do you know what the boot logo is for "宠物小精灵-结金塔之王"? I've been saving pictures of all the Vast Fame boot logos I've seen, and have been adding them to their Bootleg Games Wiki page

Thank you. Do you know if Vast Fame ever released a cart with the hack of Devil Island where the main character uses a sword instead of a whip? I have only heard of Li Cheng carts of that release

I had no idea GangFeng released any actual games, I always assumed that they just released consoles. Out of curiosity, do you know if deprotected pirate carts of those two games and digimon sapphire exist? Also, do you know what the original names of "魔戒3-不完美的世界" Digimon Saphire, and "宠物小精灵 结金塔之王" are? I know Digimon Saphire goes by a few different names, and that "宠物小精灵 结金塔之王" has been released as Pocket Monster Sapphire and Pocket Monster Ruby, but I've never seen an original cart for "魔戒3-不完美的世界", only Li Cheng releases

I was checking some of my games and comparing them with photos taken by other people and noticed something. There are a bunch of pirate carts of Vast Fame games that look incredibly similar to the actual mainland China releases of their games. When I say pirate cart, I am referring to copies made without ties to the original creator, with the copy protection edited out. When I say mainland China release I mean carts that have custom boot logos and copy protection that prevents emulation of the game's ROM. On Pepper-98's old blog, she showed a picture with a mainland China release of Digimon Crystal 3 and a pirate cart of Rockman DX3. Notice the rectangular black glob on the top left side of Rockman DX3? Yeah that appears on pirate carts that say "GB-A76E" on the back of their circuit board. I'll include some pictures of pirate carts like that one that I own. Notice how one of those looks pretty much identical to Pepper-98's copy of Digimon Crystal 3, except for the different circuit board. Yeah, thank goodness these things are transparent. That's all, watch out for these pirate carts (unless you want deprotected versions of these games), and happy hunting

Also, according to this dinosaur of a thread these pirate carts have a similar circuit board to the actual Vast Fame multicarts, so maybe they do have some sort of a tie to Vast Fame, but that is just speculation.

Another thought: the multicart versions of Vast Fame's games sometimes have the wrong music, most notably in Digimon Pocket. So does the pirate cart of Digimon 3 Crystal shown in my picture. If the two truly are related as speculated in the thread I previously mentioned, then that means that it is possible more deprotected Vast Fame releases were made by these guys. I know for a fact that Super Fighters Alpha 2001, Super Fighters S, Digimon Saphire, and Pokemon Ruby by Vast Fame all had mainland China releases, so they might have deprotected versions as well.

Ah, that makes sense

I just received some games in the mail. I seem to get rejected by china post a lot when I buy from Taobao. I guess its because GBC games come on ROM cards and apparently they don't like it when you ship memory cards. Anyways, I found the Chinese versions for Makon Soft's Pokemon Ruby and Pokemon Jade. These should run in hhugboy if you use the right unlicensed compatibility mode (Once again, thank you Taizou for putting that in the emulator). I also found a copy of "Harry Potter 3" by Vast Fame. There are a few different dumps floating around for this, but since I was not sure if this version is available (the only Chinese dump of this game I know is available uses a Li Cheng boot logo and has a different title screen), I threw it in with the Makon stuff. Oddly, it uses that strange Zook Hero 2 boot logo, instead of the one that says CRAZ.. like in the other dumps. I also included a picture of some of the games I found. In the top left is Vast Fame's Digimon Pocket. This cart does have copy protection, so I guess whoever made it may have had contact with Vast Fame. It has the unitalicized DIGI. custom boot logo. The cart below it is one of the many multicarts to feature Vast Fame games. It has Digimon Crystal 3. The cart to its right is Digimon Crystal 3 as well. When I tried to rip the ROMs for these, the multicart's ROM appeared to have an italicized DIGI boot logo, while the solo cart had no boot logo. The solo cart's ROM was the only one that ran properly in emulators, and is probably just a pirate cart. Also: the solo cart has the Space Time Star Beast music, whereas the multicart had the correct music. The rightmost cart on the top row is Capcom vs SNK Millennium Fight 2001 by Makon Soft (?). It has a cool holographic pattern, and does not work in Taizou's emulator, which is odd since there is another release of this same game which does work in Taizou's emulator. The remaining three games are the ones included in the zip file I attached to this post. A friend of mine bought a copy of Makon Soft's Pokemon Sapphire not too long ago. Hopefully that doesn't take months to arrive

Edit: The Harry Potter 3 cart appears to be a deprotected version of the original Taiwanese release. To my knowledge, this version of the game was not publicly dumped prior to this post

Also: Pokemon Ruby has the same level select feature as the Li Cheng release, however enemies can damage you, unlike in the Li Cheng release

This is the same as that Digimon Saphire game you mentioned earlier. Interestingly, I've never seen the original Taiwanese version of the game, just mainland China versions. Most of those were in Tian Cai Xiao Zi carts.

I guess that is not so surprising. I was basing my assumption that it was in English off of screenshots from this taobao listing

I posted an IPS patch for a Li Cheng release of Zook Z that is in English. To my knowledge that is the only Vast Fame that got an English release that was not made by those NGCA guys (and maybe Digimon Pocket). Super Fighter S sort of got one, but I have heard that there are no real differences between the Chinese and English versions of that game except for the sticker on the cartridge. If I remember right, guyzis mentioned that the Li Cheng release occasionally crashes, but the password system still works, so if a level is problematic, then you can just beat it on the Chinese version of the game, and then use a password to see the English text later. If I remember right, the only other game Li Cheng released in English was a version of Pokemon Perfect Silver 2002. That one is CBA046

I recently saw what appears to be a skob game not listed on the wiki

Is this the original version of what the wiki has listed as "Tun Shi Tian Di IV"?
