Expensive for what they are
How about something were you do an offset daughterboard of sorts to sink it enough to allow for sockets to be used with an original or repro shell. It would just require soldering on more pin-headers to attach the boards?The only other thing I could think of is to mill in a suitable pocket into either a 3D printed/acrylic case or an original shell. Not sure how well that would work, or how fragile the result would be.
Yup, its some work for sure like you say, it would involve a lot or rerouting. I would just do it for the components that would be socketed.I think I know what you mean... I guess you could route all connections to a double row of pin headers, and then solder the cartridge connector with a slight height offset. Though I must admit it took a while to route that board, I don't really want to redo that. The program board was much simpler.
If anyone else wants to try that they are welcome to do so.
Both the custom chip and the data size prevent this for now.couple questions has demon front been made to work on these boards or is there a custom chip still preventing that?
Bfontain designed these awesome cases:Also has anyone made cases for the carts so i dont have plunk down and gut real games for cases?
Hopefully this year.Before I put down a request for some sets, is there an estimate on when you'll be sending out the next batch?
