All copies of Batch #1 are either already en-route, or will be en-route by Thursday, finally. I apologize for the delay. Between the manual hiccup and my strange work schedule, it made for an interesting time.

All the label/manual mishaps have been sorted out, and the guy at the printer this time was really impressed by the packaging design.

So, be sure to thank Sunteam_Paul for that! Without that dude, we'd be so hosed.

Once the rest go out, I will be sending all paid folks their ROM.

To anyone who would like a ROM because they've missed out on batch #1, send me an e-mail and I will send an invoice. Upon payment, I will send you a copy of the ROM.

If you've already placed an order and entered the almighty waiting list, this payment will come off the price of the card once it is ready for you.

If you haven't placed an order already, and want to enter the coolest waiting list ever, do that now, and mention the ROM in the e-mail so I can send that invoice over.

If you just want the ROM and have zero intention of ever buying that card, that is fine too. Just send an e-mail.

The 10$ ROM price is non-refundable if you decide later on that you don't want the card. If that's the case, you may be insane, and should probably purchase Insanity from us for TurboGrafx-16/PC-Engine Super CD-ROM before we run out forever.

And finally, Aetherbyte really wants to thank you for making this a thing. We're looking forward to doing even more retro-gaming nonsense in the future.

Shipping Updates!

Another small handful went out.

I would've sent more, but there was a mishap with the last bit of the manuals we had printed.

I check the manuals / etc. again before I pack them to ship out... and...

I don't think the last little handful dried before the printer-dude slid them together into the stack.   They have spots where the ink is completely gone and it's just white.    

I don't want to send anyone manuals with flakey smudges.

If anyone does receive a manual that has crappy smudging, e-mail us directly with a photograph of it.   I'll be sure to send you a fresh manual.

In other news:

We have received a TON of waiting list orders.   To everyone who is a part of the coolest waiting list ever, please be patient as we get everything together for that second batch.

The ROM business should be sorted out in the earlyportions of this week as well, finally.   Since we're about all caught up on this mess!

AbCard Shipping Update!

I shipped a handful of the first wave of Atlantean out today. 

I wanted to get them out sooner, but, had to take care of a few things...

which included arguing with the USPS.

The rest should flow out of here smoothly. 

Also, if you have not received an invoice by now, it unfortunately means you missed the first batch.

You are all guaranteed to be part of the next batch.

Thank you all for supporting this mess!

August. Release imminent!

It's almost Dolphin O' Clock, everyone! 

Be on the lookout on the Atlantean Page for ordering information!

You will essentially be e-mailing aetherbyte@gmail.com with shipping/which region you prefer.

The orders will be processed on a first come/first serve basis, and you will receive a PayPal payment invoice if you managed to get a spot.

If you did not get into the list in time, do not worry.   We're making more.

Once this first batch is out, we will have information for our ROM release, for those of you who wish to play Atlantean, but missed the first wave!
