• Hey, Guest!

    In these dark times we know it sucks, which is why we're trying to see the light at the end!
    We're currently polling a possible UK based meetup and would love to hear user suggestions and such. The thread can be found here:
    Linky.

    Please vote what location would be best for you. Even if you're not UK based! if we can find an area with cheap hotels and such. (London is overpriced) we can maybe get a group discount if there's enough.

there is no current timelimit, but the sooner we get the money together the sooner the game will be released.

Man I would totally drop quite a few quid on this but being self employed current events makes me reluctant, good luck!

I did say *SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY* earlier. But of course now with everything that is going on, priorities have shifted. That being said I do want to see this one happening so I'm going to chip in as promised.

Willing to donate if raw dump is made with httpd-ack or SDRip. SD adapters cost like $15 on eBay. My donation would more than cover it.

The current owner has assured me he will send me a copy of the original disc, which he made using a GD-X duplicator a few years ago.
Once I have it I can make a raw dump using my SD-adapter but this can't be done right now because there are currently no international packages allowed out of the country he lives in due to the pandemic situation, which sucks ofc.

So rest assured that a raw dump will be made in due time in case that helps you with your descision.

This doesn't sound like a great idea, the original disc has scratches, so the duplicated disc *most likely* isn't data accurate compared the the original. It's the original disc that needs the treatment of a raw dump.

He also sent me this GD-Ripper log of him dumping the original Hereoes III disc just recently:



Also, heā€˜s tried running the dumped game using DreamShell ISOLoader and he says it does seem to work correctly.

Thanks for your support everyone - looks like the fundraiser went viral pretty fast (no pun intended).
I have just messaged Fatalist and informed him that the campaign was successful.

My guess is he will probably upload the dumped files here in this topic sometime later this week.

stay safe
