lol I focused on what I felt like 90% of people watching would see...a Slug clone. A really f'ing good one but a clone nonetheless.

I'd seen some Chinese carts lately that weren't original. Def not as bootlegged as other games but I always casually mention it because I've had some people leave comments buying things after I mention them asking "is this real"...and it's booty as hell.

Didn't I show the shield usage? I thought I had. Honestly I recorded this one back in fall 2020 so even I am hazy sometimes on what I chose to say

Edit : but yeah for sure I leaned in hard on the "blatant copy" aspect. Must have felt like talking about that specifically when I did the VO
No worries, I really like DF so I guess knowing the game, your review was a bit off for the reasons I mentioned. Not a biggie, I think it will bring more people to try it, so that's the point after all!

I'm curious about the Chinese clones you think you saw, I'm curious to check them out, got a link?

i'll look around. I found them when looking up the current price for the cart when I did the VO and found a few very sketchy not original carts available out of China

Interesting, I'd like to see this as well.

I tried to find them again but they don’t seem to be avail any longer. It was probably dec when I did that voice over? One of the big sellers from GZ, China (where is GZ anyway? Lol) had some IGS stuff up for sale with some clearly aftermarket labels slapped on and some board photos with EPROMs where they didn’t belong and a few bodge wires. Def nothing I’ve ever seen on an OG cart.

If I see them again I’ll take some screen caps

Thanks. This is interesting because (and @Fluffy is the expert, not me) I don't believe we are aware of any DF boots, ever. If someone has reproduced them, it could aid in the development of more Fluffy carts, or maybe even multi-cart. Also, rumor is, two cores from now on MiSTer, might be the PGM core, so it could help development there too.

I heard the same rumor about a MiSTer core. That would be awesome.

I really hope we see some Sega 16/32 love and some Taito F2/F3 core love too

I’ll be doubly sure to keep a lookout for the cart I saw. It was 100% “squirrely” though. Def not like any photo I’ve seen of DF carts

Well S16 is probably a lock as Shinobi is already available to supporters. After he gets CPS2 knocked out of beta, I think S16 is next, and I'm hoping he goes Midway next THEN PGM, (only b/c I have all the PGM games I want right now), but whatever path he goes, I'll follow...

That;s how I feel about CPS II. Great to see it but I have a Darksoft setup so it's nothing I utilize a lot
