That french dude who is making those SS5P bootlegs has posted something about releasing his own limited run of bootlegs of the game at the end of august. People are already sending in preorders and all that.

That will be interesting....

new update last week

Current status: 6. August 2020


[now shipping 100/150] Buster AES CE (we received replacement snapcases. Shipping restarts in the next few weeks.
[standby] Next in line is Kraut Buster AES (regular edition 1st print)
[standby] 2nd in line is Kraut Buster AES (regular edition 2nd print)
[standby] Fast Striker AES (2nd print) in 2021

Took them 4 months to ship 50 games so might get 2nd print some time next year..maybe

This pretty much confirms my suspension about 2 dudes building games in a living room as parts show up. You'd think this would be their death nail but knows.

Their carts have custom hardware. It's not gonna happen.

One can still hope, at least we have the Dreamcast releases for some of their games and recently the Switch too. Not that their games are something to die for, they can be pretty good/decent but that's about it.

lmbo he's gonna charge 300 euro each and call you a 2000% anti-French racist if you complain, and people will still buy it in droves, because NGDevTeam can't get their shit together and fullfill preorders in a timeframe smaller than a decade. It's GDEMU all over again, if GDEMU guy actually took your money first THEN made you wait.

I'm pretty sure the only reason this hasn't been dumped yet is because of a gentleman's agreement, people are decapping logic chips left and right on both the MAME and FPGA communities. I seriously doubt their romzorz will be out of reach in MAME forever. Remember Pier Solar?

I wish some homebrewer guys would stop being so spergy about teh dumps!!!1!, if the rom is dumped no one who was interested in buying your game in the first place is going to give up on it... oh wait, now I get it, it's because you can get away with holding people's money for YEARS without complaint and always charge a premium for the games. Silly me.

Yeah it's sad how many of these "Kickstarters" end up. I mean the game is really solid and the 60fps makes my head scratching but 5 years? At least it was released unlike "90s Arcade Racer":( They should have had at least 30% of the game ready before even asking for money in advance, showing off some stuff. Satoru Iwata from Nintendo did the opposite thing. When SuperFamicom Mother3 project was abandoned he said to the team that he could try to understand the old code and make it in 1 year, or he will do the programming from scratch in 6 months. He did it in roughly half the time. Still I find Kraut the best "homebrew" Neo game to this date. It's well designed and I find the intro really really cool! Probably one of my favs on the Neo.

I watched someone play a few levels of their AES copy on YouTube and now I'd really appreciate if NGDEV WOULD SHIP MY FUCKING GAME

I wouldn't feel bad for NGDEV if Kraut gets a "Mame/SD release" as soon as possible. How they handle the situation is definitely not usual German style. Shame on you NGDEV.

You would be surprised. 2 copies have showed up in the neostore for $2500+ and i watched them sell in less than 6 hours.

I wonder how far that price will fall or rise once they all finally ship. 2500 is insane when second prints sat for days on the NGDEV shop February of 2019.

I was going to get a jp and an english version. I just got an english version. Should have gotten both for trade fodder.

Still no update on the shipping aftet 6 weeks, what are they doing now?

Waiting for parts probably. I'm sure the pandemic threw a wrench in their little system.

They said the entire run of KB for the AES was smaller than the English run of Metal Slug 5. So thats gotta be what, 250-300 copies? It doesn't take all summer to ship that. Something else is up.

No updates or newsletter to be found. 2021 mark my words.

Yea, 2020 isn't happening. Since Krautpost is using the pandemic as an excuse to not ship to the USA using their cheapest option. NGDEV could of course upgrade shipping to a higher tier service to get customers their product and save some face . . .

or not.

I was hoping they would announce a new game to give us something to look forward to in these trying times.

If they so desire, I have enough AES snaplocks in stock and access to cart shells to clear out their entire USA order backlog by the end of the year. Just saying...

Seems no one can push them to ship out the games, just wait or ask for refund.

This is beyond totally ridiculous...but I have to say those AES carts look beautiful. When you guys eventually get your games i’m sure you’ll be happy as the finished product looks awesome. Even with all the bullshit i’m regretting not preordering a copy myself.

I can sell you copy. Supply is short so I must ask €5,000;00 euros. You have 5 hours make response.

I’m going to make you a counter-offer of a picture of my asshole. Do we have a deal?
