I particulally "like" this bit:

Excellent condition. It has been kept safe through out these years. Please refer to photos
what a chancer.

Cannot be that hard to figure out who it is, anyone want to own up to living in Bedford?

Im 100% with you here on your anger, that's an absolute disgrace and worse still its taking advantage of your support of the Amiga and the community with all your hard work and profiteering from it, its disgusting, i hope you find the wanker.

That's nasty... Understand the anger.
Pity we can't report that auction to get it removed.

We can report the auction and I already did this. If more people will do it, I am sure it will be removed.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see it gone - but what exactly is reportable about this?
I mean, it's a d*** move for sure, but it's not illegal to sell it is it?

It was never made for selling. The guy is not worth to be part of the community.

You'll get no argument from me about that. If I had one of these I'd proudly display it. Not sell it

Good, I'd like to think I generated quite a lot of heat for them with my post on the main Commodore Amiga Facebook page.

I did this too. Glad it got removed,. But did we figure out who it was? I think a name and shame is in place.

False advertising. Retro gamers know this game, but not everyone knows that this has never officially been released for Amiga.
Writing "kept safe through out these years" is deliberately misleading, as it implies it is an old item, which is additionally in "excellent condition", so higher collector's worth.

That is true, I hadn't thought of it like that (though I'll be honest and admit that I somehow doubt eBay would've acted quickly, the whole site is filled with "rare" "mint condition" "untested" retro goods that are neither rare, nor mint condition and outright broken).

Anyway, it's been removed from auction now so it's all fine.

lol.... on a different note I was listening to the 8 bit symphony when the tune for Green Beret came on.

Green Beret was never release on the Amiga 500 as far as I can recall?

Pretty easy conversion with my Rygar engine.

mcgeezer, is it the fact that someone is selling the signed, boxed copy of the game, or the price that they're asking for it that you're annoyed about?

Green Beret is one of my favorites so don't botch it

(and no it hasn't been converted to 16 bit AFAIK, only converted 1:1 for Nintendo DS and other "modern" platforms in Konami arcade compilations)

Price mainly because its clear profiteering after such a short period of time.

If someone wants to sell their box then naturally i’ll be disappointed by that.

I did this for the Sandruzzo version, does it count as fan work?
