Note : This has been cleared with Assembler.
As some of you have seen, my Alpha kit is currently for sale in the marketplace. Having just graduated from University, and needing some cash for both photography and to move on in life, I put it up for sale. I realize that the unit is huge, and at the end of the day, what most people want is for the games themselves to be preserved.
This thread is to gather interest in a community dump of these games. These games are untouched, apart from dates due to the transferring of files.
A.I. the Circuit is an unreleased game that, apart from small mention in an article by "Surfer Girl" I believe it was, nothing else on the Internet exists about this game. It is playable, with at least two players. One character has a tendancy to crash the game, and it is clearly unfinished, but it works. This game in particular has some debug text files that I haven't played with due to me not wanting to break anything.
The Simpsons Road Rage is an e3 build that allows for some demoing of the game, and of course is playable.
Dark Summit has to executables, one of which works. The game will still crash from time to time, and also isn't complete, but again is playable.
The issue most of you will have is the fact that there aren't a lot of Alpha kits out there, and issue that is unfortunately being seen with the 64DD dumps going on. And there is no way around that, unfortunately. But what may interest those of you without a kit is a set of seemingly-windows EXE files included in Dark Summit. This starts a window up, but unfortunately is missing libraries of some sort, and thus the game doesn't load. I dont know if this could work with the libraries, or if it would help at all in an emulator, but it is something that, to me, could be interesting for those with more knowledge than myself.
Now, of course, there is the issue of money, the thing that no one likes to talk about. I know this is no Sonic Xtreme, or Halo, or anything of that nature, but the fact remains that very little is out there in regard to Alpha kits. I know a few people with various games, one of which had Dark Summit and e3, but I was never able to confirm whether or not they were the same builds.
Regardless, I, at the very least, want some software to get out there to you guys with kits but no games. For that reason, I am pricing the Simpsons and Dark Summit, both together, at 400$ even. All I ask is that with any donations that would come, is the fee gets paid or it doesn't go to the total.
For A.I. the Circuit, I would be asking quite a bit more. The game is unreleased, after all. For this, I would want 900$. I realize this is a lot, but it is honestly what I feel it is worth, or, at the very least, worth to me. If this goal can be reached, Ill also throw in a utility called p3dview, which I assume views certain files but never really played with.
