Sorry for the bump to this, but quite a big legally-free download release has been made, in the form of Ultima IV: Quest of the Avatar, directly from Electronic Arts! It's been added to the list, of course.
Shouldn't be long now. As I understand it they should currently be in the final stages of production, now that the cases have arrived in Germany. I'm hoping to see a shipping notification within the next week myself, as I have one pre-ordered.
Then all I'll need is some actual SNES & Megadrive carts to read with it. Methinks I'll be doing some shopping at my local Game Trader's this weekend, I know they have a nice selection of retro stuff.
I'm happy to make a mention of it, though I rather think it will become a talking point around here once they are released.
That being said, if you haven't already done so I highly recommend joining the retrode newsletter, so that as soon as Matthias starts taking orders you'll be notified. You can sign up on the front page at http://www.retrode.org/ and its normally only one email a month so it won't clutter your inbox.
I'm working on packaging up Advance MESS based off of Mcobit's Advance MAME work and was thinking. It might be nice to go ahead and include Vectrex as an example system.
Since Prometheus seems to be the resident expert on the legal emulation resources I thought I would ask you. Is is just the games and overlay resources that are Public Domain for the Vectrex, or is the system bios Public Domain as well?
If I can't package up the whole shebang, I'll probably just skip it.
I've been researching this heavily. I have found nothing suggest that the system bios is not also public domain, just like the rest of the stuff. So you can safely add Vectrex resources to this thread as well.
