    That Fire Emblem feature in 96 was horrible.

    0.o How could you get rid of collector's items?!
    I wish I still had my NP issues, I bought several of the final issue to resell in a few years and one that I opened to keep for myself

    I had to do the same thing, downsizing when the house I was renting got sold out from under us.

    Oh and nice to see you on the forums. The decade flew by quite quickly
    Pretty much. A friend of mine bet me that it couldn't be done because of the space restrictions inside the SNES case. The Neo MV-1C fit with about 1/16th of an inch to spare. Internalizing a power supply and the RGB encoder board was another challenge. Making the power and reset switches work was a little tougher than I expected as well. The controller ports are wired so that they use a standard Neo AES controller with an extra +5V line for the led modded controller as seen in the clip. I've got to build two more still and then I can retire that project for good. Even with all the expenses that it takes it still ends up being way cheaper than going the AES route. I probably should have built one for myself BEFORE buying an AES. I make poor decisions.

    p1.jpg
    What happened here? lol

    This game is friggin awesome, why couldn't #3 or 1 for that matter be localized? In any case thank you for localizing CF2 21 years latter and people are still playing your games XD this game is currently butting heads with Phantasy Star II for the title of my favorite 16bit RPG.

    Ha. Your answer is TTI.

    All jokes aside, I always had trouble getting into this one. Too many good SNES RPGs. But I want to play through it when I finish the game room.

    I wish the copy of Cosmic Fantasy 2 I bought on Amazon will arrive soon
    It was marked as shipped out almost two weeks ago
    I've ordered stuff from the West Coast before and it arrived in less then a week, me being on the East Coast

    Did TTI shut down before the game could be localized?

    SNES has the reverse effect on me for some reason, I generally get caught up in GEN and SMS lol

    Cosmic Fantasy 2 is very generic. I liked the small cutscenes, but other than that, it felt like a chore to plow through.

    lol a few old WD games do this too. Valis is hidden in Exile somewhere promoting Exile 2: THE REVENGE! and I think there's a penguin in Popful Mail somewhere who is a commercial for Lunar 2.

    Working Designs was doing 2 games a year for the system starting in '91 and TTI went kaput in '93. I have a buyers guide floating around somewhere that promoted '94 releases on the Duo and the 2 working designs games listed were NeoGeo ports. One of them was World Heroes. Only Vic could tell you if they were localizing CF3 or not.

    see, the thing about CF2 was it was a CD game and back in '92 those small cutscenes with voice overs blew people's minds. Its also why Y's book 1&2 was held in such high regard. CF2 is a terribly primitive game though. There's no shared inventory, and if you accidentally give someone the wrong weapon, there's no option to give it to another character.

    There is one thing about the CF2 I always wanted to know though. Somewhere in the second half of the game is a secret town. You're told there's a special item there and you'll get something good if you find it. Well, I found it and did what I was supposed to do with it but I had no idea what it did for me.
