What's the likelyhood of raising about $1600 in the next couple of days?

I'll pay for half if I can scrounge up the other half. (Of course, this is just me using your money to add to my collection, but I'll get it dumped too).

It's not a laseractive game, it's just a laserdisc promotional video of mega drive and mega cd games. I had a quick look and didn't notice any obvious beta footage, but I'm not familiar with all of the games. I'm going to get Nemesis to take a dump of it and get it online.

This trend made me look up videos of some of these games. Rocket Coaster is maybe the biggest surprise to me, never seen a FMV game that actually lets you slow down the footage and even stop it like that before. Also perfect ports of Time Gal and Road Avenger, even better than the Saturn versions due to resolution :O

If there's a mister moneybags out there who wants to rescue this from the hoarders, you've got a couple of hours to act.

I put some modest bids on, but have been outclassed. I don't have an N-1/N-10 pac, so it's not much use to me.

I'm surprised how low it sold for, I was expecting it to sky rocket after I gave up.

Jesus, shipping a copy of Time Gal in that good of condition must be terrifying.

The great thing is that he is also working on writing an emulator that will play these. I've seen his posts on other forums recently about the project. I'm actually surprised this wasn't done a long time ago as old as the system is. I guess back then people just didn't realize it could be done. There was one other person working on it too except that guy was not willing to do the porn ones. On the site I read this on, someone replied that they were willing to do the porn titles in his place so that 100% will be preserved.

You sure you're not just talking about Nemesis? Read the link in the OP. =P

Ok in that case the guy who posted this on Digitpress wasn't Nemesis, but a new guy with the same goal. Somebody linked the new guy to Nemesis' post saying that this kind of project was already started and should team up with him.

It's rare, but I've received a number of laser discs in pieces through the mail. Shipping these things is always the scariest part.
