The final version of DK XM demo file has been posted.  For those who want to give it a try using emulation, I'm attaching the file.

Nice one Trek thanks!  :)

So a Donkey Kong hack being sold on cartridge for $30 plus shipping and 76 pre-orders have so far been paid for.

I've no intention of reading all 24 pages of the thread on AA about it so do we know if this person has been granted permission to use the IP and to be selling this hack?

Here is a video of the game in action on real hardware!  Yes, the game is being played using an actual eXpansion Module!!!

Looks great but I think DC has a point in the previous post, especially now that Princess Rescue got shut down. Nintendo is obviously watching now, will they let this be released?

The carts are already made and paid for, so I'm guessing that Nintendo would only be able to stop further sales of it like they did with Princess Rescue.  Also, this hasn't had as much exposure as Princess Rescue, so they may not notice it.  Of course, they could be checking Atari Age now for any more IP violations.

Well it's not in the AA store yet, so that's in our favor. Mine is paid for, so I hope I get this. There have been numerous other DK homebrew conversions, so I'm not too worried about it at this point, unless someone wants to be a d-bag and notify Nintendo of this game.

That said, I would prefer that this game be shipped ASAP without any more modifications. Up to now, the game has been tweaked and retweaked beyond infinitum due to some major nitpickers at AA. In the end it's a bonus as the game has been fine-tuned, but the nitpicking of every little thing needs to stop so we can get this game safely in our homes before something disastrous happens.

I'm with you, I just want this to ship but Perry did need to test the game on real hardware before shipping.  Now that he has the XM to test it, we should be getting the game soon.  It also won't be in the AA store, from what I understand, so that may also help it avoid attention.

Damn! Two games being pulled due to Nintendo IP infringement in as many weeks would have been hilarious!  :21:

I am still honestly surprised that Atari never went after AA for copyright infringement when they were going after all those other sites. They could have had an absolute field day there.

I posted about it in the Retro Purchases thread but just wanted to say that I got my cart and manual today.  Looking forward to playing it with the XM!  :)

Will do but it'll have to wait until the XM gets here.  I want to be able to play it with sound.  From using the demo ROM on emulation, though, I can tell you this is as arcade-perfect as it gets.  :)

I also received my Donkey Kong XM version. I haven't even played it on emulation yet, I'm just waiting until I get my XM unit.

Glad to see it finally shipped. Will the XM ship anytime soon?
