With me living in Canada, US dollars are foreign currency. When accepting Cnd dollars, or transferring to other PayPal account in Cnd dollars, there is no fee....but PayPal hits me with charges accepting the money, transferring the money to other people, and screw me with a terrible exchange when I withdraw it.....there is a charge EVERY time I do ANYTHING in US dollars...and people don't believe it because most Americans don't see this.

Unreal.  I know they charge a lot of fees but I didn't realize they made it so bad for people outside of the US when they tried to use US Dollars.

This is why I insisted that people send me the money in pounds sterling for the 9 Lives release because if I take US dollars I get shafted.

The problem I have, is that my programmers want to be paid in US dollars, and my cartridges and shells are in US dollars....so, I'll have to live with it, or advertise the price and add the 'paypal fee' to the total....

Speaking of cartridges, I am going to have to get some more for Old School....we are starting to run out.

Old School is now complete.

 

The title and credits have been incorporated and the high score table is working. It  is now at release candidate 1 and will be going through the test process.

 

The sticker should be printed this week, but I've had a lot of delays with this printer in the past. We are on track for our targeted shipping the first week of April. This  cartridge only release of Old School  will no longer be available after March 31, and payments will not be accepted after March 31. Don't miss out on this release. Send your request to gamesforyourintellivision@hotmail.com for instructions on how to pay via PayPal.
