Spirantho Posted January 21, 2004 Share Posted January 21, 2004 I now have in my possession 3 prototypes: Ice Hockey This seems to be identical but I've not checked very thoroughly. It's PAL. Robo Tank (Robot Tank) This is not _quite_ identical - I've noticed the ROM on AtariAge has kind of inverse HMOVE lines on the left side - no such thing on this cart. However, it is PAL so it's probably the same as the released cart over here. The above two are in standard(?) Activision cases with a red label saying "ACTIVISION PROTOTYPE" in white letters across the front. Pictures will follow! Perhaps of more interest, however, is a seeming prototype of Space Robot. It's not cased, it's just the PCB, with the EPROM on the front ("SPA/ROB" penned in lightly - faded somewhat), the inverter and capacitor on the flipside of the PCB. The PCB is not a hack job, it has pin holes and PCB tracks for the inverter. So far it looks like a standard copy of Space Robot, but I've not got an NTSC to compare it with. @Tempest: Would you like me to send you these 3 carts for dumping to make sure they're the same as the released version? Obviously I'd want them back! PM me if you're interested. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
