Latest ROM Report
Hello Backers! We finally have finished up all necessary measures to recover the latest 40 Winks ROM and are in the process of evaluating it to see the differences.
The date of the rom is Oct 1st 2000 and is much later than the leaked rom out there.
Also, this rom is NTSC and plays the game 60fps and also the story sequences are 60fps.
This version does not include any languages (because it is NTSC) so we also need to see if this later version is compatible with PAL consoles. The other rom version we have is PAL, with Spanish, English and Italian, it is complete, but it is very close as the leaked version.
Check out the video:
Now we will get a PAL console (we had bought one but the seller messed up and it was actually a NTSC one), a Memory Pak, a Rumble Pak, and a Expansion Pak. The game it is confirmed to need Memory Pak, but we want to test compatibility with Rumble Pak (seems to be compatible) as well as Expansion Pak (seems like a few graphics will show hi-res with expansion pak)
At the same time, we will re-evaluate the source code for future ports (Dreamcast in Mind) If we do not reach the stretch goal for Dreamcast port, if the community is up for it, we can launch a follow up KS for only the Dreamcast port.
We hope to finish strong on the last 5 days to reach any stretch goals pending!
We will be launching a backerkit page once the KS finishes, you will be able to make any add ons there, and we will be able to combine your pledges with add ons! We will also have other discounted Piko Interactive games if you are interested in grabbing some. We will be only making 1000 controllers and 1000 Plushes (minimum quantities by the factory) so there will be a limited amount left over and they will never be produced ever again.
