Is there anyone who has this issue of MSX-FAN and would be willing to make a high-resolution scan of the SD-Snatcher advertisement in that issue? I would really like to have a good look at those graphics, but due to the low resolution and all those nasty JPG artifacts of the one on, it's hard to get a good look at it. I know MSX-FANs from that time are not very common in Europe, but who knows, maybe I'll get lucky! :P

Well, I do Smile . Ccheck these new scans:

The original pictures in the magazine are very small, thus the level of detail is not very good in these new scans either.
Hope it helps.

Hummm... there's something strange with those graphics. They don't seem to be MSX graphics. Maybe from a PC88/PC98 version (but there is no PC88/PC98 version of SD Snatcher, though...).

I think they're beta screenshots.
On generation msx there's an advert with konami's that also has a lot of differences with the actual games. There's even some games on that that were never released.

No MSX grx ? I thought SD-Snatcher was only released on the MSX ...
I don't recall the item-menu on the right, but the graphics look like the MSX version to me ...
Perhaps the screenshots are from a non-final version ?

EDIT: slight double-post I see Wink

I remember those screens from back in the day. Back then I thought it to be another version of SD Snatcher, but now I just think it's a beta version. Would love to see it in action. Another set of weapons, other backgrounds, and creatures. Sweet!

I do remember seeing another set of pictures in an MSX Fan with other graphics in the Syd Garden environment. Could be a trick on the mind though.

It reminds me of the plenty of beta material I've seen from Sonic Adventure. The game used to have a sky dragon, a completely different Windy Valley (stage 2) and lots of differences in the textures.

It's too bad we rarely get our hands on beta's like that, but Nemesis 2 is a good example Smile
