I'm sorry law81, my fault without any doubts.
I've negociated/asked for the licence some times ago now and was maybe a little impatient...

The badsector / snags's edition is like a collector / very limited edition.

For your question on Elotrolado about the price difference ;
It comes essentially from the cartridge as they used transparent shells from Everdrive.me, which are more expensive than mine.
(And also I've got more contact/knowledge to produce things)

Don't worry mate, I understand it.

We need to give thanks to you and badsector and many others to keep alive our Master System.

I got my order of the 2Minds batch on Saturday and I have to say I really love it. Sure, I also love our own release, but it really is something to receive your own game from a publisher ^^
Very high quality, nice extras and NO SD CARD HOLES IN THE CARTRIDGE :3

Are you able to send posters without the folds/creases if I paid extra to cover postage in a protective tube? I plan to frame one. Thanks

Hi 8itBoy, i think you've also asked through 2minds contact form ?

Posters are already folded when i received them from the printing house (I dont fold them manually ^^), so i can't sell an "unfolded" one for the moment. I can ask to print few new and unfolded but i'll cost few € (as usually I print 250 of them to have a low unit price) + shipping in a tube.

Btw, there is a new game in the shop since few weeks ;)

Heroes Against Demons...but for Game Gear!
A dedicated GG version, not the SMS rom on a GG pcb ^^
2 players mode (with Gear-to-Gear cable), gameplay rewritten in asm, include a new music by Polaria Poyon.
Carboard box (eu/us size), 24 pages color manual and a poster.
https://www.2minds.fr/en/store/heroes-against-demons-game-gear-edition-32.html

A very limited collector edition,
Contains the regular game + 3 postcards and a sticker sheet.
Plus a dedicated Gamegear shell and glass, uv printed with 2 sets of buttons (grey and yellow), signed and numbered.
In a big dedicated cardboard box with specific foam.

Hi Ichigo, I would like to ask you something.

Now that Paprium for GG was announced yesterday, don't you think that it would be very interesting to try to speak with Fonzie for releasing a SMS version under 2Minds studio in the near future?.

Maybe he is not interested or even he believes that there is no market.

Thank you!!.

Hi Aranya, i've already speak with Fonzie months ago as i'm in charge of the GG game. He's unfortunately not interested in a SMS version.

Really bad news, what a pity!.
Thank you for trying to port this awesome game to our favourite and best console ever.

Changing the topic, are you planning to release new games for the Sega Master System?

Thank you.

It will need a huge amount of time to be finished (some lines of code, but essentially graphics and story/text (at least in french, for other languages I will search for people))

Afternoon ichigobankai,

If I place an order via the website can I pay for an extra poster? I realise it will be folder. I don't mind, I will frame it anyway. Just let me know how much extra it'll be please (ie, send me the game and an extra poster please)

Thanks

I missed buying any of the 2Minds releases, but somehow I found a copy of Heroes Against Demons GG for less than the original asking price on eBay. I have really been enjoying it but I think I need to read the manual some more because I feel that I am playing wrong. I never have enough money to buy upgrades and just have to buy health refills and boosts over and over again to hang in there. I made it to the Daemon with the Crusader - how much further did I have to go?

I am looking forward to Paprium Mini and I hope once that is done that you consider making new runs of the SMS games - they really look amazing.

Thanks!!

I'm interested in a restock as well buddy but I think ichigobankai mentioned it might be another year or so (and that was at Christmas so have to be patient. I know on the website there is a "Notify Me" function so it might be worth clicking that.

If you're interested in other homebrews then Revo also does some excellent ones as well.

I will announce a batch next week ;)

I've precisely checked my stock (CPLD as its the problem for producing) and i can make one batch of games.

It will only be focused on PIGARUS and BARA BURU (no other games)
as my contract with Kagesan ends in october.

I've made a special package (Dual Pack) with Pigarus+Bara Buru.

The cardboard sleeve will be available separately, for thoses you already have bought 1 or 2 games and want this "Dual Pack" sleeve.

Will certainly be interested in that. Will there be a new contract for the other two titles? Or another location to purchase them?

Will also check out Revo, thanks mate!

Last sales were very small (around 10/15 per title) so no new contract planned.

If someone else sale them, it will be different artworks/manuals/pcb etc. as they are mine, at least the "modern" style about the artworks.

Ah I see, well, hopefully another batch can happen of the two on a contract of some sort. Super keen on all 4. :)

Is there like a minimum run quantity?

Hi Aryana, nothing for the moment. I'm only working on Paprium mini...

When finished, i'll maybe mix my Zelda like engine made month ago with "heroes" universe to make something more interesting. I'don't know ^^

Didn't know this shop exist. Thanks a lot, Ichigo, for keeping our beloved system alive and kicking with such interesting titles! I just preordered Bara Buru, its playability and the cutesy of the cover are simply irresistible :)

I assume there will be no restock of Voyage then? Pity, I was late and it was already sold, but I would be interested on a copy.

Hi ichigobankai. I have ordered the twin pack recently but I still need HaD and Voyage to finish my collection. Is there any hope of having these two 2 next year?

Hi guys,
I've made a new pcb revision with other components, so I will made a batch of Voyage in january or february (depends on my planning)

For Heroes i must wait to have some CPLD as the game needs it (but no problem for waiting a little bit more as it's my own game)

Regards, Ichigo.

Just waiting to receive proto boards of this new little pcb.
(It can handle SLOTS 1 & 2). I've already make a SLOT2 "only" few weeks ago which works flawlessly.

@ichigobankai - I'm not a native speaker either, but I suspect "Data are inside me" is wrong :(

According to wordreference:
Quote
"Data" is technically the plural form of "datum". However, in everyday usage, "data" is often treated as a mass noun, and therefore is used with a singular verb form

Its seems to be a huge debate, lol

Quote
When it is used with a singular verb it is being treated as a noncount noun, like "information." Some people consider the use with singular verbs to be incorrect or informal, but it is entirely standard.
- The data is accurate.

A plural verb should be used with "data" in formal and technical writing such as in scientific writing.
- The data are being recorded.

https://www.britannica.com/dictionary/eb/qa/Is-Data-Singular-or-Plural-

Quote
The usage of the word data should be plural, although it’s now acceptable as a singular noun. Style guides have different recommendations, like only using it as a singular mass noun in non-scientific contexts.

https://grammarist.com/usage/data/

"are" in my case "seems to be" fine for me
Maybe our dear Maxim can help us on this critical question ^^

Correctly using datum as singular and data only as plural might sound a bit formal or even pretentious, as we English speakers value our colloquialisms and corruption of not only our own language but also everyone else’s. However “you are technically correct, the best kind of correct” :)

I only just properly noticed this thread, just wanted to say how amazing this stuff looks @ichigobankai, I'm super impressed.

Your boards look really professional; I'm quite interested as looks like you print graphics onto the PCB? As in here:



How is that done, are there PCB shops that will do this, or do you apply something on top later?

Also interested in the boxes, did you find blank boxes to purchase or did you get some made up?

Anyway, keep up the awesome work!

Hi willbritton!
It's just a sticker ^^

I'm adding this kind of thing on every product (except GG games as the pcb is directly on the plastic shell)

Nowadays you can find very good boxes on Aliexpress.
Mines come from the boxprotectorshop (they are made for MD, so manuals are a little bit longer than regular SMS ones)

They look great! Amazing work, Ichigo. IMHO a half transparent shell would be amazing for these cuties, as the PCB + the sticker art could be seen through it.
