I have finally decided to get the work done ! My old web site was very hard to maintain, so, I migrated it and rebuild it almost from the ground. It is now lighter, clearer (I hope so) and the game finder will be updated daily.
The biblios (game list) have been also updated, we some cool additions :
video can be added to all kind of games
action replay codes can be found on some Megadrive/Genesis 32X games
the inserts have been fixed and the source is now clearly identified
new Master System games variations
the Metal Slug saga for Neo Geo arrives !!!
I am still working on a simple & non-intrusive notification system, that will allow you to receive pings if your holy grail is somewhere on eBay.
After few quiet years (!), I am working actively on the web site. The menu : regular updates for your lovely collectible video games finder ! The sections Neo Geo and Vectrex are already uptodate ; the 32X section is near future.
To celebrate this, a small find : a Vectrex emulator playable online, directly in your browser. It’s here.
Time to get back to work ! Cartouche Power sees today one problem fixed and a new Neo Geo finder (version 0.5), with some new great additions : the end of King of Fighters serie (from 1997 to 2003), King of the Monsters 1&2, the legendary – and very expensive in AES Euro – Kizuna Encounter and Last Blade 1&2. The finder experienced some trouble with Priceminister indexing for some weeks. Data was not refreshed. Now the problem is fixed – sorry for the inconvenience.
The biblio Master System 1.61 is available now. I added several visuals – from my personal collection – and by a new version of the finder. You have certainly pointed out that there are too many false eBay results for the Sega Master System. The cause is pretty simple : many of the games for this console have been released for the Game Gear and the Megadrive/Genesis too. The keywords research is so polluted.
The new finder uses today more efficiently the biblio data to avoid, as possible, the false results. I hope you will appreciate. The other biblios should benefit of this feature in near future.
A new biblio (0.4 version) is available for Neo Geo here: biblio Neo Geo. I am nostalgic when I read the titles: Mark of the Wolves (which marked me like Street Fighter 2 in its time), and the beginning of King of Fighters serie. The finder has been slighty improved to manage better the search for AES/MVS games. Your help is welcomed 🙂
Few days ago, I received many gifts for my birthday. One of them should be interesting for you. My friend gave me a Mark 3 game, the japanese Master System console, but not an average one, THE most wanted : Bomber Raid ! This game is the last game edited in Japan for the console, in 1988, that’s why it is so rare – it is a good game too.
The Vectrex listing – I called it biblio – has been updated in 1.13 version. The finder has been upgraded too : among the current data – release year, insert, rarity – and the links to find a copy on the web, the collector will now watch a video I picked : review, tribute or fan film.
I hope this addition will relive some old memories and give more attraction for these old treasures !
The scans have been found on the german web site www.sega-club.com. I always try to scan my personal games, but sometimes they are not in perfect shape, and I am still looking for treasure like T-Mek or Kolibri. To make your navigation better, I think you should not wait the end of my quest 🙂
I respect the work of all collectors, and I indicate on all links the original source.
