Although for many the second game of F-Zero was the delivery of Nintendo 64, the Japanese market arrived BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2 in 1997. This title was only available through the SatellaView, a service that It allowed super AMISOM players to obtain new games and additional content on a weekly basis. Now, A collector is offering a great reward for a series of tracks that are in this way.
Porthgeidwad is a conservationist who currently is offering $5 thousand dollars on the tracks of Forest I, Forest II, Forest III, Metal Fort I and Metal Fort II, which are exclusive to BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2. The collector has pointed out that it does not matter if this treasure is provided in its physical state or by means of a ROM. This was what was commented about:
These Rom come from BS-X memory packets. The strange thing is that for F-Zero in SatellaView is that it is under a type of file different from normal called Sound link. These in the first appearance in the cart when they light up do not show / reproduce this type of file, so the only way to know if it is exists is to dump the information of the BS-X packets and see them on a PC.
It is known that BS-X memory packets suffer from data degradation (the so-called bit putrefaction ) and that, if they are not discarded now, there is a possibility that they have been damaged. More like a lottery at this time. If you have a BS-X cart out there without apparently nothing, download the information and see if it contains something.
Porthgeidwad has pointed out that half of this reward will come out of him, and the other $2,500 dollars will be provided by a person who wants to stay anonymous. While there is material that tests the existence of these clues, It seems that getting a copy of BS F-Zero Grand Prix 2 with this material is something difficult to get especially in the West.
On related topics, a veteran product from Nintendo points out that F-Zero has not died. In the same way, Gran N rejected a proposal from a realistic F-Zero.
Editor s note:
The entire SATELLAVIEW BS line is one of the most mysterious Nintendo. It would be interesting to see if the great one someday is encouraged to launch a collection of these games, something that would do the work of conservation much easier.
