    Man, all I know is that if after all this shit it ends up being the same proto as ours, I'll be fucking pissed. XD

    I was talking about this with Varion Icaria (or whatever is his name now):
    Code (Text):
    1. nineko84: this new $1500 beta maybe is nothing new
    2. nineko84: and by $1500 I don't mean 5376, I mean 1500 bucks

    Fuck, donate people! I might be able to throw a couple bucks your way. Not that it'll help with this much.

    Yeah, but this can go either way...​
    Let's hope the good way for $1500's sake.​

    I won't. You see, even if it is the same, we'll be getting a build that's known not to be hacked (whereas we're uncertain with the current ROM). Plus, there's a slight possibility of different leftovers even if it is the ame build.

    Do you mean... that the Beta we all are using right now, maybe has been edited by someone? That would mean we have to rewrite all this website's history :blink:

    Not majorly, but some believe that pirates hacked the ROM to not display the SEGA logo on bootup.

    Almost there. I hope that this hack is different, because even if it is simple an un-pirated version of our current build, it's still not really worth it.

    You used the US Postal Service for an irreplacable beta?!

    Yes! thank God! we got it! but I was wondering... If it was hard for DRX to find the cart then how did this other "collector" find out about it?

    We've..got it?

    Holy..

    this is indeed a memorable day in the Sonic Community's history. I wonder how long it'll take to ship.

    And of course, as someone else said, why did you use the US Postal Service? UPS, FedEx, ANYTHING would have been better.

    I think that the person who originally held the cart worked for a magazine which published a preview article about Sonic 2 sometime before the release and I think that they just wanted to get rid of it... for a price of course =P

    Also make sure to postal insure this thing. If it gets lost in the mail, everything is lost D:

    You lot got me wrong - it says it has been dispatched in LA (I live in Poland). A couple days will pass till I get the proto in my hands.

    Besides, it's being sent using EMS, which is quite reliable (and pricey).

    Also, about the 'second buyer' - some collector just accidentally happened to talk with the guy and asked if the guy doesn't have something new. The guy replied that 'yea, I'm selling this Sonic 2 proto for $1000 to somebody'. Which is why he contacted me to make sure I still want it, because the collector could pay immediately.

    Also, I found out who the collector was - he's one of my 'friends', if one could call it that way. Guy is FUCKING LOADED. He's very rich, so we're luuuuuuuucky. He recently outsniped me on something - he usually puts like $1000 or $2000 on the snipe so he wins by default :P

    I'll keep you posted. Also, $100 plz.

    Yeah congrats on getting the beta, forgot to mention that in my previous post XD But as for your "friend" that does sound very close. However this is good in some ways, because if more collectors find out we're actually paying >$1000 for Sonic protos, the more likely they are to start offering them.

    If it's the same proto as ours, you can still sell it to the rich guy and recuperate the $1500, drx.

    After it's been dumped on the net, it's value will probably drop extremely.

    Guys, I have invented a new religion: 'DRXISM'. This is a religion in which we worship the almighty drx and help him get prototypes. If anyone would like to become a 'DRXIST', please do the following:
    1. Calculate prime numbers
    2. Buy a shirt from Scarred Sun
    3. Donate $$$$ to drx immediately
    *shot*

    Seriously, drx and those who donated, good fucking job. Oh, and to the people that are saying shit like "o u gyuz r fags coz its a wayst 2 dnotae and drx shulod coem up w/teh mnoey hmself!1", please shut up. It's actually a good thing we donated, because if this is our proto, it's not like one person is losing an extremely large amount of money, rather lots of people are losing small amounts of money. But yeah, drx, you win. Thank you soooooo much.
