    This never happens because people don't
    have the balls/seriousness/means to follow through.

    If a *SERIOUS* effort was put forth to have the community
    go all in and get these dumped and have the cart sold on
    ebay then dividing the resell price amongst the initial investors
    then count OlderGames in for a some bucks.

    This would have to be a serious effort and someone like
    JK would *HAVE TO* be involved. This is very possible
    but I've never seen it done and this is coming from the
    guy who at one time owned both master disks for half-life
    and prop arena for the dreamcast in addition to one of
    2 known alien -vs- predator nearly complete lynx protos
    and the all beloved Super Mario's Wacky Worlds on the CD-i.

    Unless people get involved and stick to their guns this
    will undoubtedly end up in a private collection or stay
    where it is. I've dealt in protos many times and own too
    many to count. Neo Protos are worth a lot and it would
    be a shame to see some of these go for the sake of
    value and collectability.

    I'll keep my fingers crossed but forgive me if
    I don't wish to suffocate whilst holding my breath.
    When I die, I want to go peacefully like my Grandfather did, in his sleep -- not screaming, like the passengers in his car...

    I'll sit this one out, as the original investors of Ghostlop never got a proper "thanks" from anybody.

    There were 6 of us I believe.

The beta fell through many hands and in the global view of things it was big news and hype. The programmers at Visco may have simply been tipping their hats (or downing their drinks!) during late night work sessions as is common practice among the over-worked & under-paid employees of software development houses. This title may have been the predeccessor to Crystal Legacy...which was of course the proto and working title for Breakers. Without an in-game screenshot, we don't have much to go on for now.
    I remember an old article in Gamest magazine on this game -- it was an early version of Breakers. In addition to the different title, the early version also had a few different character names compared to the final version. If I can track down the particular issue of Gamest, I'll try to post some more info.

This based on the fact that many magazines back in 1991 mis-reported the title for Mystic Wand as "Magic Wand". However, after closer scrutiny that would not make sense as the screen is simply way different then that of Mystic Wand. However, the fonts used for the small display text lines are DEFINITELY those used in neo-geo games circa 1990/1991. So, it is more sensible to conclude that this game is one of the great long lost unknown and undiscovered "3 mysteries" which reside in game code locations 012, 013, and 015. Strong support of this theory is in that there is no copyright year displayed, (ALL the other shots had years) and finally in that "Magic Cram School" (never before reported) was in my files as a potential title for one of the 3 mystery spots. This one is HOT and I MUST have that NGH number! A TRUE discovery!
    Id just like to point out that "Mahou Juku" translates to "Magic Cram School" (Juku = Cram school). So this game _is_ the "Magic Cram school" you mentioned. And "Magic Master" could have been this games potential US/EUR title.

    OlderGames' "idea" sounds quite noble. But it sounds like a pretty pointless project, considering Xacrow has already dumped the roms...

    Does this mean you "contributed" a dump of this? *hint*

    How about if everyone would plunk down $10 for every Proto? So if we could get 100 Members here to give $10/proto , We'd get $1000 for every Proto to dump.

    I'd be down with that, I'd follow through, I know I'd pay.

    Whats funny is that all of you guys are "ready" to throw down the cash for these games, and you expect other people to do the same... $10, LMAO!

    I'm not saying I'm rich, but it took 6 members and a large sum of cash each to "invest" in Ghostlop.

    Like I said before, nobody thanked us, minus a few good people who PM'd me and said thanks.

    You know what?

    All of you got to play Ghostlop for FREE because of us.

    I don't want to be a hero for it, but a little gratitude would be nice.

    I'm one of the "investors" and if the others want to step forward, they can.

    Remember al of the drama and hate Ghostlop caused?

    These games are not about the love of gaming, they are about CASH!

    I am glad no sale ever happened. Fucking waste of fifteen thousand dollars.

    Mike, I apreciate and respect the efforts you and a few others made but lets be seriouse. The whole Ghostlop thing turned into a circus and noone gave two shits about the game in the end. GL was the one proto that deserved to see the light of day and it did so there is at least one thing to be happy about.

    Because people are greedy bastards...

    This guy could release the roms and make everyone happy, but instead he wants to hoard them and release "ha ha, I have these games" screenshots.

    Fuck him.

    And that's it right there. Bottom line is this guy's not going to release these roms, or show us the carts or whatever. I'd bank on the fact that this guy is loving all this drama too and laughing about all of the fuss.

    WORD. That was my point above. As someone who
    has owned many high profile prototypes, I can atest
    to the fact that he could give two shits about your
    love for the game(s). Dealing protos is all about the
    money and gamers never follow through on
    "group investments". Having hundreds of individuals
    plock down $10 is a total pipe dream. A shame too.

    Tonk is right. It's sad that supposed adults buy stuff just to brag about it.

    And also - THANK YOU TONK and the other investors for making Ghostlop available for everyone to try.
    *Diggerman* - cuz ya never knew a NeoGeo game could look THAT bad!

    Yeah, I'm sure he's splooging all over his monitor because there's a topic made about his stuff on Neo-geo.com . A topic meaning singular.

    There's yet to be really any fuss or drama over these.

    and the all beloved Super Mario's Wacky Worlds on the CD-i.

    QUOTE]

    Off topic:

    I never heard of a proto for Super Mario's Wacky Worlds for the CD-i before. Are there copies of the game to be had anywhere to play on a CD-i, or is there just a known proto for the game somewhere? I saw a site showing screenshots, specific disc information and homebrew label scans, but no rom for the game as far as I can tell anywhere.

    I doubt it's that.

    I think these were GIF files that were later saved as PNG. Look at that Chicago title and the others really closely; it's possible that these were saved with a lower color pallet than the number of colors present and resulted in that dithering.

    Perhaps they were originally saved as GIF images with an exact color pallet, but when the "Xacrow" was added with the transparency effect, it was resaved as a GIF but with the same number of colors, which would result in dithering due to the different colors made by the "Xacrow".
