one version of their site definitely mentioned both Castlevania DX and Castlevania R.. maybe that's R? Or a completely different one, even.

I'll keep the list updated with people's findings, anyway.

On that trademark page, I've got no idea what the 4th November 1994 (083/11/04 if you don't know) date means seeing as I don't have the Chinese typeface installed on Firefox but I think that'd date the company to have originated before then. Also, I don't know much about trademarks, but if Somari's trademark was registered in a few months then why did it take 10 years to register Sintax's? BTW, I just noticed that on their website it says that they had more than 10 years experience in "TVGAME" which (as long as it isn't a translation error) would mean that they've been around since at least 1993.
BTW, has anyone actually tried sending an e-mail to them?

you can see what all the dates mean on the english version:
http://tmsearch.tipo.gov.tw/TIPO_DRE/se ... =083067692
it just doesn't include as many details.

that email address didn't even work in 2004 though (when they were presumably still in business) - http://64scener.com/gb/unl-3king.htm

edit: they had a new email listed in 2006 - http://web.archive.org/web/200602060326 ... st168.net/
sintax@vip.163.com, could be worth a try.

edit2: nevermind.

There are more e-mail addresses on this 2004 version of the site - but they, too, are both invalid. sintaxtrade.com doesn't even have a DNS entry, and the Hotmail one bounces as inactive.

Edit: LOL, they also flat-out nicked the wording of that page off of Nintendo's site, and forgot to change all the references to Nintendo.

Good to see that their typos have consistency. Also, what's with the Super Tortoise banner at the top? Did Sintax make a ripoff of one of the TMNT arcade games or something?

tried another one from one of those trade sites, sintax@163.com - it hasn't bounced yet, lets see what happens. (probably nothing)

yeah i was wondering about that.. i don't think i've seen any other reference to it apart from that one banner. Its probably out there somewhere though.

Well, I was planning to get that GB Transferer 2 cable that you had, but now that you've said that I have my doubts. I know Martin must have lots of copiers, so if he can't get a single one to dump and neither can you, it's probably a waste of money for me to get anything then...x

It seems like the No-Intro group have experienced dumpers, perhaps sending the games to them for dumping is the only option available, since it seems like it's not even possible to dump anything without some programming help.

the one thing im not sure about is whether you could actually get a working copy from the dumps I have - i don't know if the dumps are complete but just protected somehow, or if theyre actually corrupt/incomplete. if theyre complete but just need descrambling or whatever, then i wouldn't need to actually send the carts anywhere (except FFIX and the multi). but i've yet to find anyone who can tell me either way. Forgot about No-Intro though, that might be worth a try.

I've been wondering that myself. I take it you've tried finding someone already to send the ROMs you dump to? Probably not an easy task :/ And I personally don't like sending stuff away constantly heh. I still never got back my A'can games I had dumped.

New game for the list btw:

I've asked around a few places, I can't seem to find anyone. although I have pretty much zero idea of where people with any kind of GB technical knowledge might hang out. I think most of the GB pirate roms out there come from Chinese dumpers, but I dunno where I'd find them either. apart from Sky League maybe.

but yeah I can't even afford to send carts around the world at the moment.. if there was someone in the UK that could dump them, thatd be ideal. but there probably isnt.
