Re: New Cartridge Case - for the Electron and Master

An 'open' version would be easy to implement, I'll put it on the list (I've still to do the mods for the ATI). NOTE, however, although I've not tried this, you may end-up with the problem that Gerald has highlighted e.g. with 'standard' IC sockets you may not be able to fit it into a cartridge slot....

Re: Master Ram Board or Second Processors.

I think the MRB support for games is variable in that if a game is written correctly, using all the official OS calls, then it should work in all three switch positions - and will probably benefit from the extra speed.

I'll add the .stl file (later) for thos...

Re: Mega Games Cartridge for the Electron MGC

Well it looks like we're good-to-go for a second (slightly smaller) batch of the original MGCs. I've spent the last month trying to find the AM29F032Bs at a reasonable price . . . You wouldn't believe (or maybe you would?) some of the quotations I've had. My usual supplier wanted $17 - the highest p...
