OVERALL : The manual is not original and had been printed less than a year ago
FACT M001 : The global shininess of the paper is not correct. It is too shiny
When looked at the natural light, the shine is not correct at all. It is too shiny.
FACT M002 : The paper of the EPILEPSY WARNING is not right. itís not salmon but orange.
All the neo geo game have the same color of epilepsy warning card, except 2 of these. Guess what, the KOF 2000 US(red), and the AF3 US( orange) : fake.
STICKER ON CARTRIDGE
OVERALL : The sticker on the cartridge is not original compared to 150+ carts.
FACT S001 : Sticker is too glossy, like a mirror " the NO CELLULITE EFFECT"
The glossyiness of paper is not right compared to an original release.
Any release, Japanese, American, looks, when looked at the sun, looks like a cellulite. When looked carefully, the aerofighters 3 doesnít look good. It is too shiny.
Strange fact, the sticker looks a lot like Ray Young carts. Mirror like, not cellulite like.
Take a Prehistoric Isle 2 or a Stricker1945 game : Guess what, it's mirror.
Take all games released by SNk, it has more a " cellulite look"
Take the Aerofighter3, guess what, it's mirror.
THE AF3 : THE INSERT
OVERALL : The insert is not original from SNK.
The insert is the most crazy fun part of the story. Unlike all the other elements, itís not always the LACK of quality of detail of the game which pops up, but the ę TOO MUCHĽ quality. Bootleger DavidG, to create confusion, redrawed some parts with a vector software like Adobe Illustrator CS5. So when you look at it, it looks perfect. But itís too perfect for 1995/1996 releases.
FACT I001 : The meg count on front.
If you look carefully at other inserts from the same period, the megs writings always have white ę disordersĽ, due to the offsett priting. For example on the Stakes Winner, there is space bewteen the red and the black. This is not perfect, it's a little bit of a charming offsett process.
Look right now the S1945+ FROM RAY YOUNG.Then, wait for me to show you the AEROFIGHTERS 3 US.
