Well done. Except that (a) it is not a full dump and (b) your ass just caught fire
("He Who Makes Super Easy 16-Bit Cartridge Dumpers")
I may be mistaken but I do not believe this game has any real protection regarding dumping the ROM data. It's protection comes in it's size and custom memory mapping used to make the game work on a system that could not normally support it. The game also likely uses programing tricks that depend on very specific behavior of a real console that would deadlock all but the most accuracy focused emulator or hardware clone.
I analyzed the ROM data in a HEX editor and it does seem legit as far as I can see. Analyzing the ROM data yourself will also show you this message.
No public emulators or hardware flash carts support this game and none are likely to do so in the near future. Lets just respect the development teams wishes and leave it alone. One day we might get lucky and they will give the go ahead.AAPleaseAdisregardAanyApreviousAAannouncementVAThi sAgameAisAnotAAAAAAlicensedUAendorsedAorAAAAAAspon soredAbyAAAAAAAAcorporationVAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAPierASolarUAKANQRQVAAAAAAAAADevel opedAandApublishedAbyAAAAAAAAWaterMelonAcorporatio nVAAAARespect our +6 years of hard work, please do not dump, copy | hack this ROM.Please remind that this game was sold without any benefits, do not waste those efforts.Thank you!
Was Pier Solar a glop top or ordinary chip? My copy is at my parent's house right now so I can't check.
Yup, just checked it out myself. Same thing over and over again for 8MBs. That's why it was able to be compressed so small.
EDIT: Just found it:
Probably a glop or TSOP, so I can't dump it; not that I would share if I did. Not this game.

I am wondering: why does the beta work on emulators and the final does not?
