I decided to manufacture a new PCB for the C=64 Cartridge Dumper that is easier to hack further.
Those with soldering skills and interesting exotic cartridges would be ideal candidates to acquire a DIY kit and build their own.
Once assembled the device looks as per picture below.
The price I suggest, which helps me with the cost of cartridges I already acquired and the ones I will be acquiring for research, is 12.00 GBP + shipping. It should be manageable as the British Pound is currently quite weak compared to e.g. the Euro.
Contact me if interested.
Everybody else: please wait until the rest of us gets a chance to test the hardware with a few more cartridge formats, making sure that it is either suitable or that it can be easily hacked to support such formats. At the moment Normal, Ultimax, AR VI, and Ocean are the only cartridges I’ve had access to and was able to test with.
