Hi Andyryals!
I expect that the new release in The Netherlands in October will not be Powerlords !!!
Do you release yours before this date or not?


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: ANDYRYALS on August 31, 2010, 10:29:04 PM
As soon as we get the artwork from Patrick the game will be releaed, so hopefully we will be shipping before October.

Post by: Seob on September 15, 2010, 10:19:09 PM
Oke here is the cover for power lords european edition. Because i liked the original odyssey cover i modified it a little for use on the retrogenesis label. Hope everybody likes it.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **

Great Videopac Cover !


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: steelballs on September 20, 2010, 06:08:54 PM
I find the need for the retrogenesis logo a shame, it just doesn't look right beside the videopac logo.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: ANDYRYALS on September 20, 2010, 08:52:42 PM
Cant see that your problem, you offered no input into the game and havent even bought a copy. Retrogenesis is not trying to replicate past glories of yesteryear this is 2010, the Videopac should be moving forward.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: Seob on September 20, 2010, 09:33:13 PM
We'll Steelballs has a point. I tryed shifting the logo to the left and right and  it sure does look better if the videopac title and retrogenesis logo are evenly spread in the top. Like the second one better.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: steelballs on September 20, 2010, 11:00:32 PM
I didn't buy the game, well spotted.

What could I possibly input into the game, it's a release of something already out there ??? I gave some feedback on the Robot City release and after that to be honest I didn't want another "retrogenesis" release. I'm very happy to have releases of unreleased prototypes as true to the originals as possible because they are from back then and not 2010.

Videopac moving forward, hmmm a release of an already existing game - not what I would call progress............



Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: Rene_G7400 on September 21, 2010, 11:13:53 PM
It's not completely the same as the Odyssey2 version of this game, these are copies of the PAL prototype of Power Lords.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: steelballs on September 22, 2010, 07:38:00 AM
What are the major differences then Rene ???


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: Rene_G7400 on September 22, 2010, 04:17:02 PM
The main difference is the correct position of the various background colors when playing this game on a PAL (Videopac) console.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: ANDYRYALS on September 22, 2010, 09:35:36 PM

Cant see why your interested cos you aint getting a copy! You can always play an emulated ROM!


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: steelballs on September 22, 2010, 11:23:27 PM
Don't flatter yourself Andy, I wouldn't part with any amount of money for your releases.

This all started out after a bit of criticism on the "retrogenesis" logo on the front cover, it wasn't on the robot city release if memory serves me right and everyone else who released a game kept them as true as possible to the old releases with the number system and similar instructions etc. Maybe I'm just too old fashioned and not 2010 enough for you!!!

The argument of "didn't offer any input into the game or buy a copy" is complete nonsense. Does that mean if Audi release a new car and I didn't have any input into the design or I didn't buy the car that I'm not allowed to pass comment on it ???
However some people feel the need to leave their mark all over a release (happened with humanoid in the past) and that's up to them but most people are happy enough with a mention on the rear cover if they helped in some way and for most people that would be more than adequate.

I just wanted to hear from Rene what the differences were as I respect his knowledge on the system.

On a more positive note it has prompted me to take action. I think now is a nice time to announce my retirement from this forum. I've been thinking about it for a while now as the scene just isn't the same as a few years back, I don't have anywhere near as much pleasure from collecting videopac (also due to some other factors) and I can't be bothered with these futile discussions anymore, there are more important things in life. I'll also say sorry to my brother in law as it's his forum but I've just had enough now, sorry Janzl!!

Thanks to anyone here who has helped me out with my collection in the past (especially George with my CSV set) and all the best to rest of you and good luck with your own collections, who knows maybe we'll cross paths in the future?!?!?

GRHG, do you have the STC already?

Then maybe I think about SH!!!!


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: grgh on October 26, 2010, 05:11:35 PM
Yes mine arrived a couple of day ago thank you, looks very nice and has its own case already :-)

Pictures will be on my website soon.

Great to hear you are thinking about SH  ;D If only someone could work out how it is supposed to work, or did you find a game board already???


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: Seob on October 26, 2010, 10:28:01 PM
My brains are working on it. Have to dig deeper into the game. I'm also a big board game fanatic and i'm trying to find the right sort of game for it.


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: immergruen on October 27, 2010, 05:46:30 PM
Is there a rom file available for Sherlock Holmes? I would be interested in it, helping to possibly figure out how it works.

Didn't know there was a powerlords with the Philips logo on it. I thought this was U.S. and Brazil only?


Title: Re: ** POWER LORDS - EUROPEAN RELEASE **
Post by: Seob on November 04, 2010, 08:16:41 AM
Guess that would be a brasil release. USA had the magnavox logo on it.
Look at videopac.org http://www.videopac.org/database/index.php?id=102 (http://www.videopac.org/database/index.php?id=102)
I also noticed a illegal version of the videopac cover from retrogenesis  :-[.

Oops! I'm waiting my copy of the limited edition PowerLords pal... which one will be the final cover? RetroGenesis logo on the upper right? on the upper left? Myself I'll prefer the logo on the down right...
