I think you must be a collector to understand a collector. I'll meet
some of them (Marco Kerstens, Marc Oberhäuser,...) tomorrow in
Frankfurt, maybe I can see more clearly then.

What do you think about modern hacks in a *very* nice package (Venture
II), would you consider this to be an original?

I've compared the disassemblies of Venture with Venture II. Not a single
line of code has been changed, only the graphic data.

But it came in a very nice wooden chest package, which did cost the
author a lot of effort, is very rare and so was a "most wanted" item by
many collectors. That's the only reason, why AtariAge lists this modern
hack in the regular database.

Still, very hard to accept for me.

Have fun!
