    So today I was at a garage sale like any other, browsing through a collection of old games. The woman running it was an old vietnamese lady, whose son had left behind an impressive collection of old, one-of-a-kind games! Of course, I wasn't really going to buy any of them - even as a joke - but one in particular caught my eye.

    Of course, the rainbow-text was eye catching, but I was forced to do a double take. "Rave Story?" I said aloud, wondering if my eyes were deceiving. The old lady, who had been watching me look through her stuff (and not noticing someone stealing a box full of jewelry) commented that it was her sons "Favorite Game" and that he would "Stare at it for hours". She, of course, didn't know that I was the original creator of the game; how could she? Of course, I didn't need to buy a copy of my own game, but it was on VHS. An impressive feat, porting it over must have been. Even if it was without my consent. So I bought it for the novelty.

    And it's about as bootleg as it gets. For starters, it...well, I recorded some footage on my Exakta RTL 1000. See for yourself. (Click the link.)

    If for some reason you want to try this out for yourself, be warned, it was in pretty bad shape when I extracted the file from the DVD. It may not work right. I know for a fact that the Switch Weapon Buttons and the C Button crash the game; just don't press those and everything should be peachy! Infact, only move, jump and shoot. That's all you need, really. And it's definitely worth sticking through to the end for, even though it's short. Enjoy.

    Get it here.

    How did I end up playing the Chinese bootleg of Terri's Night Out? Unless, Chinese TNO is actually a texture hack of Vietnamese Rave Story! :eek:

    Edit:
    Well, after hours of searching for something related to it, I finally found a screenshot of the Chinese TNO hack. Interestingly, from what I can try to read from the Engrish of the website I got this screenshot from, it says that if a new game or a continue of a saved file were to be attempted to be played, the game will straight-up crash, making it unplayable.

    I don't know if there are any other existing bootlegs of CS Mods, to tell you the truth.

    It has a good story. Very good music compared to the original Rave Story. The story consists of you trying to go through various dungeons to defeat the evil lord that takes control of the land and summons bats to kill you. The game takes about an hour to complete and is really good when it comes to difficulty curves. It gives you an option to choose who you want to play as and how the dungeons will be layed out infront of you. Over-all I think this is a very good game! I hope it gets many sequels due to the fact that it has everything a game needs.

    I like the weed gun.

    Pretty funny to play, even though bootlegs make me feel nauseous.

    10/10 it was okay

    LOL WTF are you guys talking about?

    How long did it take you to make 300+ .bmp images?


    This took a lot of effort.

    obviously polar transferred the bootlegged game from the gameboy cartridge
    he didn't make the game itself, only the glorious original

    6 hours straight.


    yeah I mean aside from a few minor issues I admire the bootlegger for his creativity, aswell as making it function on a punchcard-based computer format; it's really impressive! I'd like to meet the creator of it someday so we can exchange ideas for RaveStory 64: Nuts & Bolts.

    On disk, meaning it's already installed, you can't access it until you buys it, that's Capcom.

    I wonder how someone actually got a PC game, let alone Cave Story, working on VHS. Honestly I wouldn't even think of the biggest of bootleggers doing such a thing, considering the... ridiculousness of the idea. But hey, it's a bootleg, we could go anywhere with that.
