Thanks for the update!

That does suck about your PC. My desktop just died on me about a week ago so I can relate.

Also, I've been playing Star Ocean and it is definitely my cup of tea! The combat is fun and just challenging enough without making you want to pull your own hair out. I'm not sure if you still have the resources to make carts for it, but I may want to pick one up eventually.

I know it would mean spending a little money, but ebay has a bunch of parallel cards for $10 shipped. That way you could do all your programming on your main rig. Too bad its not a serial port you need, I have a couple of old NiB serial port cards and would send you one for just covering postage. :?

Yeah, I thought to pick up a parallel PCI card but I decided against it. I've had bad experiences with those types of things, I would hate if I got one and I couldn't figure out if it or my programmer was giving me shit. That and the fact that I wouldn't doubt if a $10 card would just straight up not work, and I am unwilling to spend money on one anyways lol.

Not to worry though, I got that Dimension up and running. I'm actually using it right now! lol. I was able to use pretty much everything from my PC that shitted out, so it's pretty much the same computer. Which just confirms my thoughts of the older PC, the motherboard went/is going bad. That computer was running oddly slow for a few months.

Long story short, the problem has been taken care of so I can continue working on the repros.

Yeah, that game is awesome. I couldn't put it down. I could definitely make you one, just let me know if and when you want one.

I made a few alternate labels for Star Fox 2, I thought I'd share...

Here's the original label I made. I took the logo from the original stock box art used as a teaser before the game was canceled.

Here's one that I found on a forum:

This one I made for a member that wanted the untranslated version in a Super Famicom cart case:

The above label made me want to do an American label like that...

This one's the same thing, but I made the logo transparent so you can see the planet through it:
Image

And then a few more I did real quick for fun...

Those all look pretty snappy. Last one needs a little help with those halos around everyone though. :P

Yeah, I didn't spend a lot of time on that one. And now that I look at it, I forgot to take out the pockets of white in between them. edit: Fixed that problem. You can only see the "halo" when its on the black background, you can't really see it over the planet. I think if I printed that label out, to size, you wouldn't notice it at all.

Thanks. I'm not sure which one is my favorite, or if I even have one. I'm limited to the images I can find on the internet, so if any one finds anything cool I could use, give me a link!
