even though its not worth much i guess its cooler for it to be a copy of an original than just a burn of an iso off the internet!
I suppose so. But it's a shame that you spent so much money for it.

ok but if that were true and this disc was used to start the whole iso spread, where did he get THIS disc? he couldnt have made it from an iso as it was used to start it. are you saying that this is a direct copy of one of the original prototypes? I guess he got the authentic prototyp first, which ...

I'm afaid to say that, but there's only one possibility. That is, it was made by the same guy who also created and spread the iso. ok but if that were true and this disc was used to start the whole iso spread, where did he get THIS disc? he couldnt have made it from an iso as it was used to start i...

To add, once I'm able to copy the content of the Microcosm CD-i disc, I don't really care about the original either. You make me wonder what that one will be worth :shock: a good amount, i would imagine! you should see (if you already havent) what prototypes and first editions go for for cart and d...

Moreover, writing directly on the unprotected surface wasn't a common practice back then, as CD-R's were very unreliable at that time.
