It's a shame because that probably means we aren't going to get it emulated or on a flash cart anytime soon.

Im down to buy a cart or pay the devs for a ROM, but Im not going to bid $500 on a ---smurfing--- Genesis game on eBay

So, after a month of waiting, my stack of bootleg Genesis carts got here today.  I also ordered a cartridge flasher two weeks ago that coincidentally arrived today.  Shipping from China is mercurial.

Anyway, here we go:

Cyborg Justice, Jungle Strike, Water Margin, Castlevania, and Streets of Rage 3 were all about $4 each shipped.  The flasher was $30 and came with the loose rewriteable PCB that had Crackdown on it.  The Hyperstone Heist cart was $8 and is rewriteable.  The pcb inside is identical to the loose one.






Because Iím foolish and buy the same thing twice, hereís a legit Jungle Strike beside a bootleg.  Some bootlegs had that diode on the left, some didnít.  Otherwise theyíre identical inside.



And hereís the backs.  Legit cartridge on right, tmnt flash cart on left, cheap bootleg at bottom.  The cheap ones just snap together, no screws.  The TMNT is dead on besides cross head screws.




The cheap bootlegs are very light, are as thin as a US cartridge, and have a notch in them.  This makes them universally physically compatible.  The TMNT is very similar in weight and feel to a legit cartridge.  All of the repro pcbs are slightly thicker than original.

And hereís the loose cart inside a very special temporary loaner case flashed with the SF2 enhanced rom that fixes the colors and voices.  PCB drops right in and fits correctly.

Pretty sure Miyamoto would roll over in his grave.... if he was dead.
