Pirate Talk / The fall of pirate game companies
« on: January 13, 2018, 08:14:10 PM »
i wonder if it's truly dying out or just the country changing with the times.  If there's still places that care about bootlegs then I doubt they'll be completely gone, just be less common and less of a crutch for them (I think I remember reading a while back that it was one of their biggest exports which is why they've let it run rampant as much as they did.)

Game Boy / Trying to find games
« on: December 30, 2017, 07:25:27 PM »
Many games can be found on Asian auction sites like Taobao (granted you know the Chinese for what you're looking up.)  Some of those games do pop up on Ebay on occassion (Sonic 3D Blast 5 isn't too uncommon on Gameboy multis) but more rare stuff like Sintax's Super Sonik II you either gotta watch all those auction sites carefully or know someone willing to sell theirs.

Discussion Center / Merry Christmas, bootleggers!

It's not very merry for me because I'm around terrible family but hopefully everyone else is having a happy, safe Christmas/Festivus this year.

Discussion Center / How did you find PGC?

I think I found out about this place via the RX Community.  I mostly lurked until I finally decided to register to this site.

Discussion Center / How do you buy from china?
« on: December 14, 2017, 09:49:21 AM »
It depends on the site; for Taobao there's several ordering agents for it (I use TaoBaoNow for instance.)  There's also an ordering site or two out there for Taiwanese sites like Yahoo Auctions Taiwan and Ruten that you can google.  I don't think there's many Chinese sites that let people buy outside the region directly.

Game Boy / Interesting new GBA multicarts from China
« on: December 08, 2017, 08:22:27 PM »
Huh, that actually is a decent variety of games if they're no repeats.  I've seen some multis like this on the site but never thought a huge deal about them (I'm always hunting official bootleg products) but it's good to know they're worthwhile; the GBA multi I have has three mid-era licensed NES games and the rest are generic multi fodder, nothing outstanding.

Game Boy / Bootleg Pokemon Yellow and Crystal
« on: December 05, 2017, 10:46:39 PM »
Yeah those look like generic bootlegs (esp. yellow; I've seen that kinda bootleg all over Taobao with that same cart mold and scaled down board.)  Not sure if there's anything notable about that Crystal bootleg like who could've published it.

Famicom/NES / Nintendulator with VT03/VT09 support
« on: December 03, 2017, 11:18:49 AM »
It's nice being able to play Zdog and Samuri stuff since the latter I own is PAL and I'll probably never get to own a Zdog.  Great work!

Game Boy / Bootleg Pokemon Yellow and Crystal
« on: December 03, 2017, 10:55:08 AM »
The image doesn't seem to be loading for me (it's saying to update the account to allow 3rd party hosting.)  Going by the descriptions though I'm guessing they're either generic bootlegs (there's tons of those on the Pokemon games) or in Yellow's case possibly a Li Cheng release.  Li Cheng's stuff always has their logo somewhere on the label that looks like an X in a box (like on this cart:)

Game Boy / "Star Wars 3"?
« on: November 02, 2017, 08:40:03 PM »
There was an official Star Wars: Episode 3 game but I wouldn't be surprised if it were one of those Sintax platformers that got hacked and re-hacked a billion times.

Famicom/NES / NES Games That Has Different Music By Revision
« on: September 18, 2017, 05:59:16 PM »
As far as licensed i know certain jingles in Mendel Palace are slightly different from the Japanese version's (Quinty).  Track 23 in the current NSF is one example, as it sounds a bit more interesting in the Quinty version.

Hacker Center / Unripped Pirate Games
« on: August 21, 2017, 04:45:22 PM »
Minor Sachen NSF stuff:
-Tasac's NSF is missing the short ending jingle.
-Q-boy's NSF is just a rip of the sound test; it's missing only the title theme AFAIK.
-Gaiapolis doesn't have the stage themes in the NSF rip out there. Don't think a full rip exists of it yet.

Other Pirates / Crazy Miner

Sad thing is i'd probably get this just for the weirdness factor.  Wouldn't be surprised if it was taken down already.

Game Boy / Do you recognize these?
« on: July 31, 2017, 04:00:52 PM »
The first one's a Chinese release of an official mono Robot Wars game, the second one have no clue o n; the li cheng previews of it make it look like a 3D military game? It's "A028" in this image.
