Superman 64 (Prototype) ROM fundraiser
03. Feb 2013 at 23:08
 
So here's the deal. A few weeks back I acquired an early prototype of Superman 64, quite different from the final product. Instead of letting it sit on a shelf I'm offering the ROM to be released for everyone to play, IF we're able to raise...

$350 (donations sofar $290)
... $60 to go!


Donations can be made using Paypal to "nesworld@email.dk"
Please write "Superman" in the donation title, please Smiley

Donation deadline is March 31, 2013. If the goal isn't reached by then, all donations will of course be refunded.

Thanks to:

Cheaterdragon1 ($10)
Olivieryuyu2000 ($130!!!)
ImpulseX ($5)
CoinCollector ($20)
Nekojin ($125!!!)

----------------------------------------------------------------

Well even though the goal hasn't been met, I've decided that now is the time to release the ROM, thank you to everyone who has donated and if anyone feels like donating the rest to meet the goal, you are more than welcome to do so and I thank you Smiley

Now here's what you've been waiting for.... or some of you at least....

ROM available here:
https://mega.co.nz/#!kl12lZYA!ZVdFyziJBH2wWS6KK4bF6Vjp0G1e3M2lub5v-Bs9KDc

----------------------------------------------------------------


...

Some may say that I'm holding the ROM captive and want a ransom, but I'm simply just making an offer, if you do not like the offer and won't participate, fair enough.. just don't complain please.

A video was made by RarewareCentral of this very cart, so this is what the game is like:

Thank you for this opportunity Martin. I've played through the released game from beginning to end on the hardest difficulty. It sure was awful. I know this game has a real interesting history to it so I do look forward to seeing how exactly they ended up with the final product.

Just made a small donation.

pretty much boils down to "no rings" Smiley

I haven't done a full comparison, nor do I wish to, but it's said to be very different.

Yes I am. Since the game differs significantly from the final game, I believe this is worth getting released, and I am happy to contribute to it.

I only hope that the goal will be reached Smiley

Wow thanks for the early release! Just tried it out and the controls are much different from the final release. Just like the final version of Superman, the colours will be screwed up in an emulator.

I need to get a flash cart!

Yeah, wasn't expecting an early release.  A thousand thanks Martin!  Who cares about the naysayers, eh?  This stuff has gotta be preserved.

And thanks to the other donors too!  Those are some pretty big sums from some of you guys - much appreciated.
