Good question. From last I heard, Bobo was negotiating price with the owner of the cart. Im still holding my funds just in case it picks back up. Ill try to get ahold of Bobo.

Might be worth posting on forums more geared towards this kind of activity, would get more attention on places like Assemblergames and Nintendoage.

I'm part of assembler games. Although that may not be the best place for this particular cart. It all started when I was impatient about getting it leaked (search "possible ocarina of time debug cart on ebay" on assembler games)then the topic got locked after an unnecessary debate. Luckily, I was too involved on other things (thank goodness) to be part of the argument, but I think the debate wouldn't happen if I wasn't so impatient.

Hey guys, so I have good and bad news, I've ended up forking out the extra cash and successfully purchased the Zelda debug prototype.
The final purchase price was $5,350.
Now the bad news.
My wife is VERY unhappy with my splash out and is demanding that either I sell it off straight away or recoup most of the money back.
as hextendo mentioned, that cart has been quite an unpopular topic due to the way the seller went about a few things.
This is absolutely killing me because I'm so close to properly owning this but not if it means ruining my marriage.

Soooo... This means we need to raise $3000, I personally don't feel comfortable asking ppeople to donate so much and I don't think it is at all possible to raise that much so I'm guessing that corners me into a sale :(
Sorry guys looks like a dead end.

Sorry but i can't offer more than the 60$ i offered.
At least, even if you have to sell it again, you could study this prototype, and even dump it (i'm not at all interested particularly in the dump itself, it was just to try to comfort you).

Damn, sorry to hear about that. Unfortunatly, I only have the 400 to spare (might be able to get more later, but I have a few other expensies atm). That and if you release the dump, the price of that proto will drop so this is a sticky situation. Let us know what works best for you, for as you said, its not worth ruining a marriage.

This is why you sell it first, then release the dump later, perhaps anonymously ;)

Seriously though, good luck. I hope it works out.

I personally suggest that you dump the rom, resell the prototype for whatever you can(even if it's not as much as 5k) and then accept whatever donations you can. We all agreed to put at least something towards this and I don't plan on going back on that.

He doesnt have to worry about dumping it, for the winner recieves the rom as well. Let us know what course of action you wanna take.

So, basically, he can upload THE SAME EXACT ROM as the cartridge version? PLEASE UPLOAD it! I know, I have NOT learned my lesson, but this forum seems A LOT MORE CALM than what I experienced at assemblergames. Plus, I wanted to test it on my ED64 since I looked up if there's any MORE prototypes besides That debug rom. Finally, I looked ALL OVER NESWORLD, but I can't find the download link.

Everyone ELSE is CALM but I WONDER about SOME PEOPLE sometimes ::)

Besides, the rom is his to do with as he pleases, I assume. If he shares it, he shares it. If not, then he doesn't.

Really sorry guys but I ended up selling the cart to another collector, I did let him know that you all are very interested in the releasing of the Rom so I hope that he decides to release it to you all. I did receive a Rom of the game but I couldn't get it to work, not sure if it was dumped properly :(
