It was released to a very limited number of people in Japan only. When you first turned it on it had to call some number in Japan to sort of register it (weird).

The best thing ever made for it, in my opinion at least, was a track creator for F-Zero.

That's what I was guessing. The legal fees of bring it to trial have to waaaay exceed what I'd make. It still bugs me though... It would of been one thing if it was still in print (I've never sold something that was).. It's just like Nintendo shutting down NES ROM sites.

I won't lie... Perhaps I should have mentioned it at the begining buuuut.. I sold copies of something mostly at cost, illegally. It was a music album that has been out of print for decades.

Punishments for piracy question

I looked around for this and could not find a straight answer..

What are the punishments for selling pirated copies? Like, for instance (a very minor seller), $300 of pirated music sales?

What about the big ones, like $10,000?

Thanks to anyone who can provide info on it.

War is definite. And ya know, Afghanistan isn't really well off at all now. They have a very weak government propped up by a foreign power. Sometimes accused of being a puppet.

N64 emulation runs great on a pretty darn weak PC. I remember it being 100% on a lot of things with a GeForce2 and a P2 450.

Snatcher and Lunar are the other two big releases for the Sega CD. I know someone who bought a Sega CD just for Lunar. This was about a month ago.

PS2 is considerably weaker then GCN and xbox. It is not WEAK period though - just starting to age. This is not really a big problem, and it bothers me that people base so much on graphics. Sometimes I miss the days of the NES - it had a virtual monopoly for like 7 years. One system that everyone had...

" they're just a good console manufacteurer." Both consoles are good, but the PS2 is ridiculously prone to failure. it's the least reliable mainstream system, easily, in the past 15 years.

The port job to PS2 was bad, so yes the DC version is superior. It's a very good game, though I only had it borrowed and got stuck in the mall place and never advanced further - not far, I know. I only played for like a day.

Carrier is way under rated. It's no Code Veronica, but in many ways it's more innovative then CV. Specific targeting, for instance. A melee weapon that is actually good is also nice.

The graphics are for the most part excellent.

Half-Life's framerate.

Now that a few of us have *cough* seen Half-Life DC running with an irregular frame rate... I've heard it was complete. Why did/does it chug so much? The DC is not THAT weak - I find it hard to believe Q3A (even 4 player split screen) runs as well as it does but Half-Life is really taxing it. I tend...

Reserve judgement til the game comes out, and remember gameplay is more important then graphics. It looks to me like they're trying to get the lighting effects in and sacrificing everything else for it. While it's true the PS2 is much weaker then the other two, it still has the best library.

It has it's own scripting language, dubbed QuakeC. It's basically a simplified C from what I can remember of it. Not as powerful as with the full source, but easier to work with.
