Update on VR compatibility:
I received my VR and I tested the game. It is not working at this moment (due to the cartridge itself) so I will send a cartridge to the VR team so they can make it work.
I will keep you updated.

Good job Kai! Much appreciated. Will enjoy it later on a VR or regular one. Keep up the good work.

Kai Magazine: "Since making these cartridges and this foam box holder cannot be done in small runs, it is highly unlikely that we will make a second run.
(I repeat that for us the goal of making this game is not to sell many units, we do it for fun.)"

If so, it's a possible to buy a digital copies after that (after all cartridges are sent to buyers)?

Nobody knows. Assembler has sent for free by email a digital copy of his Ghost'n Goblins adaptation for V9990 to those who purchased the game on cartridge but, as far as I know, he hasn't sold digital copies of the game.

Therefore, for now we have no intention of releasing the game in digital format. Maybe in a few years, but for now I'm sure not.

As the opening post says, there will be no digital version short term. And maybe never.
A digital edition of Ghost 'n Goblins however is available for 15 euros.

Yes, he did. He sold them, I bought a digital version (I haven't a V9990 so I wasn't able to play a physical version). He sent it toe directly by email, with all the knowledges to use it on openMSX

6 days left to preorder this game.
Few units left.
Regarding VR exclusive users:
The cartridge still does not work on VR as of today, so please don't buy it if you are going to use it only on VR.
The MSXVR team is still working to make the game work correctly. Once the game works, even if the cartridge itself does not work we will make a pre-order run with exclusive VR cartridges (those cartridges will not work on standard MSX, only on VR machines) for those who want to play it on VR.
I can't tell you when will this happen as it does not deppend on us, but we will keep you informed.

MSXVR: The pre-order for Metal Dragon for msxVR EXCLUSIVE users.

Warning: This cartridge will only work on MSXVR machines, it WILL NOT work on regular MSX machines. The game is the same as the standard MSX version but the msxVR version uses an exclusive msxVR cartridge.
We also sell the regular MSX version in our online shop, but PLEASE make sure you read the hardware pre-requisites for this game before you buy the regular MSX version.

The standard MSX version cartridge will not work on msxVR, so if you already preordered the standard MSX version but you want to play it on the msxVR instead of the standard MSX or you only have an msxVR, please contact us as soon as possible so we can send you the right version when the shippings begin.

THE PRE-PURCHASE:

All those who participate in the pre-purchase will be included in the special thanks section of the manual (in order of payment) unless they tell us otherwise (if you do not want to appear on the list of special thanks, please contact us).

The pre-purchase will last 2 weeks.
Once the pre-purchase is finished, we will order the necessary materials and have the manuals printed and assembled with your names.

We expect shipments to begin by the end of June or early July, but with the times that run can arise unexpected, so please be understanding.
Shipments will also be made in payment order.

Those interested can make the pre-purchase in our online store.
All the most common payment methods are accepted (card, paypal).

We also added 10 more units of the standard MSX version for those who missed the first pre-order:

Again, please make sure you read the hardware requierements for the standard MSX version before you purchase it.

To take advantage of the shipping costs, you can take a look at our other MSX games and we can send them to you in the same package (our previous games are compatible with msxVR and since the last msxVR update, they work at the correct speed).

Thank you with all my heart to all those who have shown your enthusiasm and support by learning about this project.
That gives us the strength to do more and better.

hI Kai magazine, I already made a preorder. Do i need to make the pre purchase now or something on the website? or are we sent an email or something? I probably am dim but i am a bit confused.

I want a regular version but just to know; what would happen if i by accident put it in my msxvr some time later (when i have forgotten this doesn't work); would it just not work or could it damage the cart?

I don't mind being in the credits, but prefer that to be my nick and not my real name. Is that possible?

And thank you for your effort. Will be looking out to hopefully see more quality releases by you in the future!
