    All this stuff that's been crammed in wouldn't make it a true MD experience when released anyhow. If I wanted to download extras, go online, participate in leaderboards and the like, I'd use a modern machine.

    The whole point of releasing an MD game is to deliver an MD like experience. If it comes out (if) and does all this then great, but it does not change what I want from an MD game: A finished article isolated in its black shell as nature intended.

    The five year delay as a result of this folly at the expense of the backers is really poor.

    If Fonzie does not finish the project, I hope that Tulio, Groovemaster303 and Jredd will share its soundtrack with us in some way.

    Creating a video attacking Fonzie and insulting him left and right is the easy way to do this.

    I wanted a documentary, something that tells everyone's story (or as many people as I can fit in) and I want to leave my personal feelings out of it.

    I had no idea that the early runs of Pier Solar had issues with burning themselves out. Has anyone here ever experienced that? I was there during the first pre-orders for the game and nabbed a first edition for $35. I'm kinda scared to keep playing it lol

    It's the 3.3v / 5v issue. Ideally you need voltage translators.

    Don't play Pier Solar or anything else by WM. It's not worth the risk due to 3.3v
    components interfacing with a console consisting of 5v parts.

    I'm probably just going to stick with the DC version from now on. Unless the new Mega SG has no issues with running this, and other carts like it, safely.

    The effect will not harm the console, but rather shorten the lifespan of the cartridge itself. By how much is not known. The cart may last 15 years or it may last 30 years, or it might even last only 10 years. It's an unknown factor because it depends on how much you play it.

    it's not that big of a deal as this is all theoretical, ie it is true but no one has still shown up with a failing one. Same thing for the everdrives: the failing ones had other bugs not caused by improper voltage.

    Well it's not entirely theoretical. The heat generated in the cartridge is very real, and will shorten the lifespan of the cart. However, where the speculation comes in is on just how long they will last, which again depends on how much the cart in use. If it's a case where they will last 20 years under an arbitrary 'average use' scenario, then it likely won't matter to most people. It does mean that having dumped the ROM is very important to preservation, much as people hate piracy.

    When Watermelon Games goes out of business that may not even be an issue, considering the people who know Fonzie best have said he's unlikely to ever sell off any intellectual property.

    I watched part 1 of the Paprium fiasco documentary and it said that during Pier Solar's development that Fonzie left Watermelon for a short while and Tulio took over the company. I know Fonzie owns the company now, i haven't watched Part 2 yet but how come Watermelon ended up with Fonzie as the owner instead of Tulio?

    This game will be rendered pointless when SOR4 comes out... Fingers crossed it's awesome!
