    Default FS: NES Prototypes (including some unreleased...)

    Alright I have five NES prototypes for sale. I am willing to sell the first four for $600 as a set, I think this price seems fair. If someone wants them, give me a holler. If this is too high, then make me an offer. This set includes Crystal Mines, Moon Ranger, Pyramid, and Impossible Mission 2.

    I also have a copy of Robert Byrne's Pool Challenge for sale. This is an unreleased Nintendo game by American Video Entertainment. I own two copies of the game, and the one I am selling is on a circuit board, it has no case. However, I could stick it in an extra Color Dreams Castle of Deceit case if you want. I can scan a picture of this cart if you are interested in buying it, I don't have one with me currently. I am interested in serious offers only, this is an unreleased (and very fun, one of AVE's best) Nintendo games. Thanks.

    Cart #1 is Crystal Mines:

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...inesproto2.jpg

    Cart is dated November 16, 1989. According to a Crystal Mines revision timeline I have, this was at the end of the prototype stage. Cart most likely the same as the final version. Tons of hand soldering on the back.

    Cart #2 is Impossible Mission 2:

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...proto/im2f.jpg

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...proto/im2i.jpg

    The game contains an early chipset version used to bypass the NES lockout chip. This copy of Impossible Mission 2 is the same as the released, just an engineering copy.

    Cart #3 is Pyramid:

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...ramidfront.jpg

    A second prototype copy of AVE's Pyramid. As with the above cart, this game does not feature any mention of American Video's copyright. The cart appears to be the Famicom release of Pyramid (by Sachen) soldered onto a special American Video Entertainment Famicom adapter. Very nice!

    Cart #4 is Moon Ranger:

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...ngerproto1.jpg

    http://www.planetnintendo.com/thewar...ngerproto2.jpg

    This prototype of Moon Ranger is one of few known to exist. There were a few changes that I had spotted, enemy ships shooting different weapons and so forth. Then again, maybe I am just dreaming this all up since I haven't played the commercial release of Moon Ranger for quite some time. Uhh--yeah.

    Well I fired up my brothers' scanner today and I grabbed some pictures of the Robert Byrne's Pool Challenge cartridge. It is still available and begging for someone to add it to their collection.

    The cart has socketed Eproms with it.

    Here is a picture of cart with case. I need some extra money for college...so I can get things such as a guitar. If it doesn't sell on here, then I'll try ebay.

    Has Robert Byrne's Pool Challenge been dumped? or any of the others for that matter.

    @SimplyNES: Pyramid, Moon Ranger, and Impossible Mission II have not been dumped. Crystal Mines has been dumped, though a ROM for the game was never released. It seems to be the same as the released game.

    Neither of my copes of Robert Byrnes Pool Challenge have been dumped. However, I believe that Martin's copy of the game was dumped. I also heard that there was a source compiled version of Cue Stick floating around, though it was never shared with me, unfortunately.

    On another note, I am more interested in selling Robert Byrnes then I am the rest of the carts.

    If anyone else has questions, please ask. Thanks.

    @Martin Nielsen/NES World: You are a douchebag. Perhaps you didn't read the forum rules clearly enough? Read number 6:

    6. Don't march into a thread and state that you can get an item for $X on eBay or some other online store. If you think their price may be too high, don't be rude about it. If others feel the same way, then it won't sell. This is a hobby where each person gives an item a different monetary worth. While it's fine to look out for others, people should also do research into the item they are buying.
    And you dumped my Robert Bryne's Pool Challenge cart? I think not! You may have dumped the ones that you own, but nothing says that the two I own are identical to yours...

    I always appreciate luck! Thanks pal.

    Just a few other comments. First off, you seem to find a AVE game in a Color Dreams case amusing. Well, I don't find it too weird. Didn't AGCI/Sharedata produce a few Chiller carts in blue Color Dreams cases And then there is your Tengen Tetris cart on an AVE board.

    As for the smashed up casing, an empty Color Dreams cart don't do me a lot of good. Yep, that's right. The circuit board had gone to another project. My dear departed Castle of Deceit cart, rest in peace

    Well TRM, AGCI licensed everything from CD, so a Chiller game in CD casing isn't too far out, but AVE didn't license anything from CD. Since Richard Frick used to work for Atari he probably knew the programmer of Tetris and got a copy of the binaries and some engineer at Macronix made a cart. Tetris doesn't run too well on an AVE board though. As for my Secret Scout in AVE casing, Phil worked for CD, so he might've received the binaries from DeForrest or whoever it was that programmed Secret Scout.

    Interesting bit... an AVE PCB actually fits in a Nintendo cart casing.... If I remember correctly, Odyssey Software used a Nina1 board in a Renegade casing for their Deathbots non-interactive demo.

    I love how everyone is making a big deal out of unlicensed AVE games anyway though. It's funny, with all the effort you guys put into these guys and Color Dreams, you should try talking to the guys that did some of the games that REALLY mattered, like California Raisins, and the the mystery of Bio Force Ape. This is why I like reading Lost Levels....they took the time to research the stuff that people do want, and do like, and was featured in Nintendo Power. Now, I like pool games, but come on, this bickering over AVE is like complaining that someone stole your expired milk from your lunchbox.

    It was featured in Nintendo power.. Who reads Nintendo power say "I".

    Gotta admit though it doesn't sound too typical that something like it would end up in Nintendo power. The conflict of interest in it for them(Nintendo) bothers me more than the fact that they didn't work to get in Nintendo power just by trying hard. It's not like one of these AVE supporting guys could get into Nintendo power, you can't just be in Nintendo power by working hard and trying really hard. The fact that they did get in Nintendo Power shows that someone used influences(favors) not "plain hard work".
