    Well, I can be sure of nearly nothing in this world, so... :P

    And even if it turns out to be our beta, it'll be un-pirated.
     
  3. Have you been in contact with this guy very recently? I'm just curious as to how it's going. Again, I wish I could contribute, but you need a damn job to get some damn money. :P What's the current amount of the fund? (And when do we get that Sonic 3D Beta? :P )

    Will we receive a refund if the cart is our beta?

    Refund? And where do you expect drx would get the money to refund you? Hmm?

    No.

    You can hate me all you want for this reply, but I felt the need to say it:

    Another reason why this is risky for a lot of money.

    About me getting a job - in Poland, you have to be 18 to get a job that's not moving stones around for $1/hour, seriously. And when I turn 18, I'll have sooo much money that I'll be able to buy all megadrive protos in existence.

    About the refund - if I could refund you the money, I wouldn't need your donations in the first place. While I wish I could refund your money, I hope you understand that I cannot do that, especially for such a big price.

    Just to clarify: I meant the proto being the same as risky, not the refund part. I totally understand why the refund isn't going to happen.

    Perhaps you should ask the owner for a total/partial refund in case it's the same as the thing we already have.

    Or you could offer him less money just for letting you dump it, instead of buying the physical media. I've seen that being done before with success.

    ICEknight's suggestions are great, but may not work-this guy seems to be a hardass...

    From what I've gathered, the fact that this guys is even selling a proto is a miracle in itself, so trying to haggle into a different deal is pretty out of the question in this case.

    I'm tempted to close and unpin this topic, so drx can make a new fresh donation topic...

    This may seem rather small and irrelevant, but I've noticed that the two Hidden Palace screenshots match identicly to the Megacosm screenshots seen here.

    Probably just a coincidence, but I thought it was worth mentioning.

    Who knows?
    http://trash.drx.pl/vgce/s2_vgce_03.jpg (I'm assuming all the shots in this page were taken from the prototype drx is trying to buy.)

    Look at the bottom and right of this picture. There is a Tails End Sign there. It's enough proof that the prototype isn't the same we got here. I think it is much more later than we think. (A Tails end sign might mean that Tails is playable. I didn't saw any other magazine showing a playable Tails. A near-finish prototype?)

    [EDIT 2]
    (I ran over all the 6 pages, but I didn't saw nobody saying nothing about this. But I'm not perfect, so if somebody have alredy posted this DON'T BURN ME BY THIS.)
    Nah, I looked carefully at all pages. I'm the first to post this.

    [EDIT]

    BTW, look at this at http://trash.drx.pl/vgce/s2_vgce_01.jpg :

    So Hidden Palace isn't the "super secret zone" the magazines were talking about?

    There's a Tails sign in our proto as well.


    Sounds like a small misunderstanding to me.

    Really? How I can see it normally? (this means, with no hacking.)
