2000-present / Re: Preserving the Subor GTMC-18 300-in-1
« Last post by forgotusername on July 02, 2024, 01:29:35 PM »
Going by the Nyko Game Console (which features a near-identical game list save for the Adventure Island hack), a number of other games in the 300-in-1 are also undumped. I imagine it'd be easier to dump from the Toyota cartridge rather than the Nyko's built-in ROM, so I think it's definitely worth dumping (though I wouldn't be able to acquire it myself). I assume you're already aware, but there's also a much more limited McDonald's version with different software.

2000-present / Preserving the Subor GTMC-18 300-in-1
« Last post by SF-Human on July 02, 2024, 11:33:47 AM »

Subor GTMC-18 is a famiclone made to celebrate the 18th anniversary of GAC Toyota, which was bundled with a 300-in-1 multicart having a themed Adventure Island 2 hack. For whoever wants to preserve it: Just search "小霸王广汽丰田" (Subor GTMC) on Idlefish and when I checked last time there're plenty of listings with both console and cart, priced around 100 yuan which is about $15. I believe the price will probably go up a few years later due to its rarity.
Info on this particular branded console can be found on BootlegGames Wiki: https://bootleggames.fandom.com/wiki/Subor_x_Toyota

Does anyone here know where I can download the ROM file for Defier by Nice Code?
This game (and many other games like this) with plug'n play collections are available in "Project Plug-and-Play" page:

Recently someone goes by the name "Old_Pirate" claims to be BMB and is attempting to port Mario 3 to newer SGDK. He even screenshoted his Mario 3 folder on his Pateron. Judging by this and that his Battle City SMS port credits to TZAR I'm 99.9999% convinced that it's him, given the TZAR name isn't brought up much often than his BMB alias in discussions about his games.

Famicom/NES dumps / Subor Windows 2002 + two Yuxing study cartridges
« Last post by SF-Human on June 30, 2024, 02:22:19 AM »
Recently I've came across a Xianyu listing of Subor Windows 2002, but I didn't purchase it because I don't have the necessary tool for dumping Famicom/NES cartridges.  One of the Chinese dumper goes by the name Mr.Zhao had dumped the ROM of it along with two previously-undumped Yuxing study cartridge and he released it in the SB-2000 QQ discussion group (286445907), so I've commissioned him to release it publically, which he allowed me to do so.
If you have any questions, you can contact Mr.Zhao via his QQ (64026709).

Speaking of the 2nd batch of SH97 images, I think I've seen that exact mold before. Here's an example:

Dark alleyway sales would be a pretty bad business model for this sort of stuff. Most of this stuff could just be sold out in the open since it was in countries where IP law was either weakly enforced or not enforced

Small shops I would guess was the most common distribution method, followed by mail order.

Where and when you were buying this stuff matters though. Waixing had (or I guess has) a very long career and was in Mainland China. I've heard Chinese users mention their games being available even in larger stores (supermarkets) at one point, but Waixing continued operations in the Famicom business much later than Hummer (which stuck around for a while but had moved on from cartridges). Out in Taiwan though it was only really small stores since this stuff died out earlier there and larger stores weren't much of a thing back then there

Without statements from people who were there though it is hard to say for certain for each game. Sometimes they showed up in magazine ads if you were lucky
