If you're not familiar with it the Seta Aleck64 hardware is based on the Nintendo 64

game list: http://www.system16.com/hardware.php?id=816

hardware pics: https://ikotsu.blogspot.com/2019/07/aleck64-seta-nintendo-1998.html

mame driver: https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/drivers/aleck64.cpp


The hardware is similar enough that some Aleck64 games have been made to play on N64 hardware: https://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=2609.0



I'd be interested in being able to play N64 games on an Aleck64 mobo by way of a cart adapter. this could potentially allow an Everdrive to function as a multi-cart

similarly devices like the N64 Blaster: https://retrostage.net/index.php/product/n64-blaster-2-0/ could potentially be used to make Repo Carts of some of the prototype/hard to find Aleck64 games.


The Mahjong carts have some extra IO hardware on the cart but the simpler Aleck64 carts look like this:

by comparison here's a pic of an N64 Mario Kart PCB:

both carts are essentially just the Serial ROM, security chip, and save chip
