Such an hypocrisy... and this for a 1991 game noone could sell now...
Unfortunetly 99% of the people are generally greedy. They figure (and they are probably right) that since there are only 3 cabinets around and no ROM dump exists it will make it worth MUCH more then if the ROM dump was available and everyone would be able to play the game on the computer...
It does suck though
Because of greediness we will probably never see or play this game.
