    Could you tell us if what you read was good and interesting (gameplay mechanics/content, etc)
    And if some elements disappointed you

    I think it would be morally wrong for me to detail game mechanics, etc (plus I've not actually played it!). What I will say is I didn't notice anything glaringly bad about the game in the printed materials. Everything is to the usual Fonz WM production standards. The Manga really impressed me too, although it's a tad short (I imagine cost was a factor here).

    I heard recently that the game would have something special which wasn't revealed yet. After finding out what this was about, I remembered I had been told by Fonzie himself about this 'novelty' as soon as 2015...
    After all this time I come to the conclusion that being in production doesn't mean much anymore considering it isnt even sure if this concerns the game itself (which isn't known to have a finished tested prototype) or something else...

    Maybe an army of Chinese hardcore gamers is deeply testing Paprium atm in a factory basement...

    Fonzie told me something very interesting about Paprium too years ago (by email).
    Especially for arcade fanatics. Was it the same "special" thing ? Who knows

    I don't know if this famous idea lead to something concrete. I don't speak about arcade stick.
    I don't want to say more, and I can't because I didn't got any information since then.

    If that was true, the bootlegs would already be out for sale.

    I really had an interest in that stick, Golden, but I didnít get a chance to pre-order it. (I definitely pre-ordered Paprium, though.) Is it likely Iíll be able to buy the arcade stick when it releases with the game? I see WM is no longer accepting pre-orders right now. Is the art for the stick going to be pretty sweet?

    Good to know that the stick thing is alive. I pre-ordered one, but no evidence of it's existence has surfaced until now.

    Not to say that 3.3V isn't bad (I've explicitly argued it is, after all), but the race to the bottom in terms of quality has gotten really impressive. I honestly didn't see that one coming.


    EDIT: click pic to enlarge (also pic not mine, just grabbed it from the chat :​v)
    And yeah it was one of those make-your-own-game cheapo cartridges

    it seems the 5v address+data bus working on 3,3v flash mem is a matter of luck, in fact many chinese carts doenst work or fail cause the flash mem just burns

    on top of that, the difference 5v - 3,3v does not affect only to the controller / memory on the cart, it generates current on the console side that may break your system too.

    there is more info on this site:

    https://db-electronics.ca/2017/07/05...etro-consoles/

    general message: do not use carts without at least array of resistors for the address+data lines. Proper ground pour + level traslators are much better.


    it seems for the pier solar they used at least the first option, resistors, and they used a proper ground plane

    update: it seems second batch of ier solar didnt use the array of resistors

    Glad I didn't cave in and get a refund! Hopefully it really is ready by October.

    Absolutely. Some of them die when you first pop them in. Others stop working after a few weeks. Aliexpress crap :(
