  • Quote from rewrite: “Quote from ekorz: “Just so you know these pcbs are only compatible with a few pgm titles. I think just 3 really, but it would be good to get a list somewhere if I’m wrong (maybe I missed it?) ” Only 3 of the "important" games. Others, like Demon Front have an on-PCB processor (I think that's what it was). ” Yep thats right. DF uses the ASIC / ARM7 cpu. Quite a few games use it.

Of course, you're welcome to organise this privately. If you don't care about a cartridge shell and are happy with sockets you may want to ask the guy with the wave soldering machine. ” IF i had MORE spare time.. i'd offer to supply finished carts to Australia....…
