Wanted SD Device or Mega Game Cart

Post by owen2471 » Sun Jan 26, 2020 8:53 am

Looking for the above Electron devices. Any help appreciated. I just have a basic electron. No addons attached. So I’m looking for the easiest plug and play device. Without having to ad hardware to plug the sd device into.

You've already posted in the correct threads for those, but what's appropriate for your electron depends on what hardware you already have. If you've got a plus one, then the SD/Sideways Ram device isn't what you need. The mega games cartridge is a different beast again - what's on it is fixed. If you write a post with what you want to do and what you've got (e.g. plus one), then we can help work out the cheapest and most effective way of meeting your needs :)

The ‘Electron SD Interface & SW Ram Expansion’ is likely to be the most suitable current expansion for you.
A lot of expansions for the Electron require either a Acorn Plus 1 or a PRES Plus 1 or other equivalent that has cartridge slots. Such as the mega game cartridge for example.

As you have already posted in the ‘Electron SD Interface & SW Ram Expansion’, I suggest you be patient. Most of the modern expansions / interfaces / adaptors / hardware is produced by members in small numbers in their spare time.

If you want a Plus 1, then it is best to post up a wanted post for that on its own rather.

Dave H. is still working on the second version of the Mega Games Cartridge.
