So you're saying that they stole the internal pcb design?

You do know that circuit design software will lay out the traces for you, don't you?
All you have to do is match the names.

(Btw: I believe its done via a layout program because of the way the traces look in the pictures. Human layout would have realized really quickly that there's a much more straightforward way to do it.)

Is shubibinman just doing the equivalent of saying that anyone who 3D prints HuCard cases is stealing from Aaron or is there something I'm missing?

I understand people disliking the sale of repro games or repro carts like ichigobankai's, but he says that he and turbokon know some dirty secret.

Yikes. Well I bought a Magical Chase. I'm happy with it. I didn't really like the case until I saw it. I'm so stupid....I thought the cases were PSP size. Lol they are tiny but pretty cool and fit in with jewel case size.

I'm going to clarify some things I said.

About the boxes : I've been a little bit harsh. I don't like the choice of VHS-like boxes. I think it would have looked better with a cardboard box.

As for the repros, at first I thought it was aimed at delivering homebrewers a way to make some Hucard releases.

I honestly don't think it's a good idea to use it to sell "reissues". We'll soon face the same issue as with the "PCE memories" thing.

The only good thing with those is that they actually don't look like the real thing.

These cases look great. I don't think cardboard would be a good idea. Plastic is better for longevity.

Indeed. Plastic boxes clean up nicely after decades-old flan is removed. Sadly, trying to remove flan from cardboard boxes will damage them.

For now...

I'm just waiting for someone to sell one to a local store that doesn't know any better for a huge sum of money and wait for the shitstorm there.

Is it the same store that is selling a Turbografx for $250? Maybe it's turbo karma? Lol

My two cents, which is probably worth less, is everyone needs to get over the beef with pirating shit. You are pirating, it's a f*cking free for all. Who gives a shit who does what. If you don't like it, don't buy it. Vote with your dollars and stop bitching.

these dont look original intentionally
the goal was to undercut some of the crazy overpriced games, and try to kill off some of the demand
as far as trace routing, that was mostly done by hand
and yes i would love to have homebrew on these
