Fake Bio Force Ape prototype rom (Dur Butter demo)

Fake Bio Force Ape prototype rom (Dur Butter demo)

I have managed to track down a prototype cartridge of the rare and unreleased Bio Force Ape by Seta. Thanks to the help of some anonymous individuals who have dumped the rom of this ultra-rare prototype cartridge.

I can't stop playing this game!

Looks like ProgrammingAce managed to Obtain and Dump Bio Force Ape himself about 16 days before I did...

It's windowed EPROMs on a margarine type printed circuit board.

Am I the only one who fails miserably to understand this joke? I have absolutely no idea what you're talking about.

(Trust me, it's worth it :D)

this is what i have been able to learn: there was a thread a while back on another board (i forget which of the top of my head) about someone who found 'bioforceape' and then it turned out to be a fake after the guy posted the screen shots of the butter monster..

eat communisim turned into an internet meme too i think

This is the kind of game I would I wrote when I was in college and had time to waste on it. I don't know why I didn't think about this :P

When you program homebrew, you're programming COMMUNISM.

Basically, it's a feud between cartridge collectors and the rare rom dumping scene. Collectors hoard the unreleased and undumped games, and the dumpers insult them by calling them "fatties" who eat lots of butter, and the collectors call the rom dumpers "communists".

After suffering the flamewars between the "factions" I've decided they're all obese socialists.
Makes me want to write homebrew games that appear to be fake unreleased games just to tweak them. Or at least make screens and pics of fake cartridges, then smash them.

Apparently, you couldn't write the word "social-ist" or "special-ist" on this board without the hyphen because the word censor sees the "cial-is" and thinks you're talking about a brand of tadalafil often advertised in spam. But now that social-ism is the topic, I went and changed the censor pattern so that the bad word has to start with "cial-is".

test:
socialist == social-ist
so-cialist == so-my mom

I'd work with you on that, but it's hard to convince the collectors and ROM dumpers that our homebrew is actually an unreleased game from the NES's commercial era when we're discussing milestone builds on nesdev.com/bbs.

by on (#46232)
You overestimate people. People were convinced by that one guy's magic DVD player accessory for the NES that played Sonic 1.

by on (#46237)
Sonic 2, actually.

So when do we start a "make the best fake Bio force ape" competition? :P

First we'd have to make a suitable side-scroller engine. I might be available for this once I finish my other project.

Neotoxin?

by on (#46808)
Oops, heh... missed this thread.

I'm 10,000 lines of code into this, so i think i have a head start on the competition. The artist working with me is the guy who originally started the hoax too, so that helps.

I have a developer's diary going here: http://www.digitpress.com/forum/showthread.php?t=131204

But for a more technical description, the game is about 95% done. The last thing left to do is create the background designs. The version of the engine in the demo just creates a simple background design, then draws "interesting" things over top to make the details. The new graphics engine uses meta-tiles to draw each background. It gives us a chance to make a much more detailed game.

As it sits now, the game has 7 levels, 5 bosses, and a bunch of cut scenes to progress the story... Subject to change, blah blah blah...

Dur Butter ist ernstes Geschäft.

A slightly more literal take on eating communism: Hammer and sickle on a Toaster Strudel pastry.

Cracked recently published a think piece by Stephan Roget titled "5 Technologies That Will Change The World In Baffling Ways", claiming (among other things) that Amazon will enable communism. More precisely, drone delivery will allow short-term on-demand rental of power tools and the like, making private ownership of property less necessary. Add drone delivery of pizza to this and you can really eat communism.

"Private property" (as referred to ad infinitum by Marx and friends) is not the same thing as "personal property", and if we're putting our belongings in the hands of Amazon's delivery system, that makes us more reliant on private property, not less. Sadly I don't think "renting the means of production from a multi-billion dollar tech company at a reasonable price" really jives with most people's actual definition of communism.

(Why am I even earnestly responding to something in a Cracked.com listicle? Maybe I should just embrace capitalism and order some drone pizza instead...)

Not if there are still red necks looking for target practice. :lol:
