    I was in on that Kickstarter too. They worked things out with Nintendo and the campaign ended just fine. I love Bitmap Books C64 book, so I've been looking forward to the NES one.

    This just got cockblocked. Message from KS:

    This is a message from Kickstarter’s Integrity team. We're writing to inform you that a project you backed, Neo Geo Anthology: History & Complete Games Library, is the subject of an intellectual property dispute.

    The project has been removed from public view until the dispute is resolved, which can take up to 30 days. The project’s funding and the countdown to its deadline have been stopped. If the project becomes available again, the countdown will continue and the new deadline will extend past the original deadline for as much time as the project was unavailable.

    Meh... I take no comfort in being right... I sorta like stuff like this tbh... I like it for the fact people cared enough to try and produce it...

    However, in todays current world.... Businesses like to protect their investments like never before...

    All is not lost tho... there maybe an announcement about a relevant product soon... You never know...

    Ye well snk does not care enough about its legacy to take a proper care of it, and blame indies who try to document it ?
    And why attack this project that is "historical oriented" in a way, when letting multicart or stuff like that run wild ?
    Only reason I see is they want to write/rewrite themselves their history but thats not the way a research work is done.
    As much as I love this company, this decision is a pain to look at.

    New info.

    Geeks-Line says:
    Dear Backers, and to all of you who have placed your trust in us.
    SNK have filed a copyright claim against the campaign,
    There was, however, an agreement between SNK and Geeks-Line already in place, and we have done our utmost to satisfy their every request – Hence our confusion at this temporary shut-down.
    In the words of H2G2 – Do Not Panic. Your pledge is safe.
    We will of course keep you informed as soon as we know more.
    Again, thank you for your trust.

    Only those who document it for profit, while using copyrighted materials. Divide and conquer.

    The French version was OK'd by SNK. English version is a totally different ball game. There will be an announcement soon from SNK.

    I would rather say the opposite...SNK is clearly concerned about its legacy, especially now that they are rebooting the company brand, going back to the roots (old logo/jingle and gaming focus).

    Allowing "anyone" to publish sub-par material about their most important asset could easily turn in image , hence economic, damage.

    There is definitively a need for this kind of content, I'm sure there will be more coming.

    Well… they should not be expecting to control everyone that is talking about their o'time.
    I dont see em going after every retro gamer magazine.

    Hope this is just a misunderstanding, something that can be talked out.
    Hell, lets dream, they could even step in to provide exclusive intel :-)

    seems it is not the case

    Edit:

    to elaborate, it is understandable why SNK had issues regarding this initiative, far from content quality... it is indeed a misfortunate coincidence that leGeek wanted to publish an English book, during the same time frame... maybe after..

    To be honest... I have no skin in this game...

    I liked Shito's book... I would like different perspectives on the NG scene from people...

    It does seem unfortunate that the Official release collided so well with this one... maybe a deal could be hammered out...

    I just want what's best for our scene and our memberbase... so I don't see the need to fight over a book...

    xROTx

    PS. I'm of the opinion this thread stays... unless external concerns and pressures are applied...

    EDIT: OK OK... some members might also point to me being a bit of a cowboy concerning certain matters... just making sure you understand that I know this already

    I think it is important to do not mix things: Shito's book (which I contributed with all the original pictures from my collection) is/was an Italian language, free to download initiative. Also, it is important to mention that the French version of the book was indeed somehow approved by SNK, proving they did not blindly stop even a commercial product (by the end of the day, let;s do not forget it)

    Now, it seems pretty reasonable for SNK to stop a concurrent worldwide initiative, given their plans for a similar thing, and especially during this delicate moment of re-launch of the brand...no need to remember everybody that, ultimately, neogeo is SNK property.

    It is my opinion, given my experience with SNK since the time of the interview we did in Esaka, it is likely this is just a timing problem with no intention to arm the fanbase, so no need to put them automatically into the "bad guys" position...i.e. I wouldn't be surprised if the Geek book will be allowed to be released but just after SNK's one.

    Well said. It's exciting either way. It's been decades since snk has published an official history book (the All About SNK dvd set was nice though). It will be good to see neo geo history in the spotlight for something other than aftermarket game prices for a change.

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.
