Fake cartridges

Postby SinReVi » Sun Oct 09, 2011 5:32 pm

This topic is about fake Lufia cartridges/boxes. With "fake" I mean they're not official cartridges or pirate versions.

Lufia I
Image Image
From: http://www.elotrolado.net/hilo_reproduc ... os_1341493
(The site seems to reproduce games on cartridges?)

This is pretty obvious
1 - There never was a PAL release of Lufia I.
2 - There is Lufia DS artwork on the back of the box. Obviously Lufia DS wasn't even released in 1993!
3 - besides that, some of the text on the back just looks weird to put on a box.

Lufia II

Do not insert this cartridge in your snes because... it's made of soap =P

Lufia TLR
Image
The real Lufia TLR's cartridge is not grey

Lufia RoL
Image
This is not what the real cartridge looks like. The seller of this also said something about there was a bug that you can't sell items. This is an error found in some Lufia RoL roms.
This bug does not happen if you have a real copy of the game.

Image
This might look real, but if you've seen the real box you can see differences. This box was the one for the cartridge above.
For example on the real box, the "r" next to the Lufia logo is white, not black. Same goes for the "r" near the Atlus logo.
Also there are supposed to be shadows under "The ruins of Lore" which this box doesn't!

Lufia DS
Haven't seen anything.

Where these items you bought personally or did you pick up images from other people?

I got a bad copy of RoL from ebay that has the issue described.

I'm making sure not to sell it to anyone because you can't sell anything in the game either...

(sorry, poor attempt at humor)

Found this on Ebay.

- Lufia I never had a European release. So there wouldn't be a German release either.
- This is a cartridge of a German fan-translation of Lufia I

Seems like someone dumped either the NA or Australian version on a Japanese cartridge, so you can play the game in English on a Super Famicom.

Image
Seller said in the description that he's also selling a small box with the game.
However, there's only a big box version of Lufia II in the Netherlands. Besides, the small box just looks odd. There's just two screenshots, an image of Maxim that's mirrored and a weird Lufia logo.
I don't know what it is. Perhaps it's just someone's attempt at making a replacement box, or a placeholder box that was used for sending preview cartridges to magazines and stuff.

Image
That's someone trying to sell that pirated Lufia The Ruins of Lore cartridge + box (the one that won't let you sell stuff in the game, you know =P)
However, the photo of the back of the box is a badly edited version of the back of Lufia The Legend Returns.
