- 3DO IDE Adapter: A device has been created to replace the CD-ROM of the 3DO with a hard drive. A 120 GB hard drive is the max for this device. This device is being sold out of Russia, and so far there hasn't been a great way to buy these in the US at least.
- A standard edition Action Max Collection DVD is now being produced with all 5 action max games. You can purchase it through this AA Marketplace thread.
- DISCONTINUED: Action Max Collection Epic Fail Edition: Funnily enough there was a dvd released with all 5 action max games on it. Only 20 were produced.
- IN PROGRESS: openJAMMA is the flash cart for your arcade? That's right, it's an open source JAMMA board with USB, Ethernet, wifi (w/usb wifi adapter), SD Card, and SATA ports on it. It also has video out, VGA, HDMI, and audio outputs. It doesn't run MAME right out of the package, but you can install it yourself. It's basically a MAME pc replacement that is projected to be under $100. Personally, I want to see a giant arcade cabinet with an SD slot on the side:D
- ArcadeSD PCB Currently supports 70+ vertical and 40+ horizontal games and does not seem to have been updated for some time to support more. More info can be found in the manual: http://www.gamma-arc...SD/ArcadeSD.pdf

- IN PROGRESS: Harmony 2: SD Flash cart that should be a lot easier to use than the CC2.
- DISCONTINUED: Ah, the Cuttle Cart 2, an excellent mmc-based flash cart for now, but others will be coming shortly hopefully.
- Fairchild Multicart A menu-driven multicart which obtains all of the original games and a demo of the homebrew, Pacman. It may take a while to receive the cart, but the sooner you get your order in, the sooner it will come.

- DISCONTINUED: Creativision Multicart: a non-writeable dip switch cart that has been sold out for some time, there was a lot of love put into this one.
- IN PROGRESS: GD-Emu: A working prototype of an SD-based GD-ROM emulator has been created. This project is currently in prototyping stages. The link is for the blog site, and the most helpful posts are here and here.
- IN PROGRESS: DCIO: It's been stated in multiple places that the team working on the PSIO for PS1 is also working on a DCIO for the dreamcast. There's not a whole lot of information on this yet, and with the GD-Emu already in prototyping stages, we'll see where this one ends up.
- Dreamcast SD Cards: Click here and scroll down to the Q&A in the fourth post for some information. Easiest and safest way to obtain one is probably through Ebay. Please don't follow the instructions on purchasing one in the first post. Basically this allows you to play homebrew and certain commercial games through the Serial port on the Dreamcast. Compatibility is not the best, but it's currently being worked on.
- Drag'n'Derp flash cart is an updated cart mainly intended for music. It is a driverless microUSB cart which means you can drag and drop files from Windows, Mac, or Linux. The downside is you can only use 1 game and 1 save file, and it's pricey in comparison to other carts.
- There are a number of usb flash carts that have a rather small capacity and are mostly meant to be used with LSDJ I believe. Currently, the most popular/most available cart is the EMS Smart Card 64mb. The EMS cart allows for multiple game, but only 1 save file.
- DISCONTINUED: Various flash carts are available with the most famous being Bung's GB Xchanger. You can also use the Flash2Advance cards with GB Bridge.

- DISCONTINUED: GG Pro 32M: A 32Mb parallel flash card from the old tototek line. Supports Game Gear and Master System games.

It will load roms up to 80 Mb within 1 to 2 seconds (much faster than the Everdrive-MD). It also has Built-in .wav playback and snapshot saves. Possible future capabilities to play 2 player games over the internet (with modified ROMS).
- NEO Myth MD 3-in-1: Purchase here/Forums here: Supports most Genesis and 32X games. Support Master System Games and can output FM Sound. Can load SEGA CD BIOS from cart and can use as a SEGA CD RAM cart. Essentially, this cart took the capabilities of both tototek flash carts (described below) and gave it SD card capabilities. Requires a NEO2-SD or similar Nintendo DS flash cart. Requires a NEO2-SD or similar NEO2 NDS flash cart.
- Everdrive-MD: Supports most Genesis and 32X games, Virtua Racing definitely does not work though. Supports Master System games. Will load SEGA CD BIOS from cart. Does NOT have SEGA CD RAM cart capabilities or FM Support for SMS games.
- DISCONTINUED: MD Pro 64M: A 64Mb Parallel flash cart from the old tototek line. Supports 32X but only for your region. The MegaCart is a parallel flash cart that is also a part of the old tototek line (and Evermind's). It can be used as a smaller flash cart, but it can also be used as a SEGA CD BIOS loader and SEGA CD RAM cart.
- DISCONTINUED: Cuttle Cart 3: Micro SD Flash cart by Chad Schell for all of your intellivision needs.
- DISCONTINUED: Chad Schell's Intellicart, games had to be loaded from your pc via a serial cable one-by-one.
- DISCONTINUED: Skunkboard: a USB Flash cart that allows you to load one game at a time. This product has gone through a couple revisions, but Rev 2 and 3 have 8mb of flash memory available. You can read about the difficulties with creating the last batch through the link, but there may be a few Skunkboards available once they are produced. The rumor is that this will be the last batch of Skunkboards made.
- DISCONTINUED: There exists a jaguar flash cart that was used by devs back in the jaguar days. Apparently the software is a little poor since it's not a commercial release. They can hold one game at a time and can be a little pricey.
- VAPORWARE: The JagCF from jagware is both a flash cart and an expansion hardware for the Atari Jaguar. There have been many heated debates between homebrew devs, jagware, and "pirates" about whether or not to include the ability to play commercial games on the JagCF.
- IN PROGRESS: Lynx Xcart (French): This is a microSD flash cart for the Lynx. From what I can tell, a prototype was made, possibly shown at an event, but it hasn't reached production yet.
- IN PROGRESS: Lynx Flash Masta cart is currently being worked on. If you follow the link, you will see a prototype playing an actual lynx game.
- Lynx Multicart: An AA member has created a USB Flash cart that holds one game at a time, but it will handle all game sizes up to and including 512kb. (To order PM Lynxman)
- NEO SEGA MKIII Myth flash cart: Purchase here/Forums are here. Supports up to 16Mb roms. Has an FM chip on board, so you can hook up the audio cables to the cart and out to a stereo. Requires a NEO2-SD or similar NEO2 NDS flash cart.

- FlashMasta/LinkMasta: a 32MB USB Flash cart that can hold two games at a time. More changes on the way!
- DISCONTINUED: Bung Flash cart, various sizes with 32mb being the highest. Parallel interface. Info is here.
Neo Geo AES:
- Multigame 161-in-1 English AES: Most multicarts are MVS carts, but this is a multicart for the AES system which eliminates the need for a converter. Although it's a little on the expensive side, it does have a nice selection of games.
- DISCONTINUED: Multigame Doctor 2 with the Neo Geo Interface can play the older and smaller games with special roms. A good picture is here one pic down.
Neo Geo MVS:
- (Please let me know if any of this information is false, I'm no expert on these.) There are a number of multicarts available these days with an increasing number of games. Here is a list of carts and what games they have on them (Keep in mind there is a 150 in 1 and 161 in 1 released since this page was made). The 138-in-1 multicart is supposed to be the most accurate(?) due to the attached board which loads the game into ROM on the cart and restarts the Neo Geo. So it should behave as if a normal cart is inserted. I've heard conflicting accounts of multicarts not working with multi-slot machines and unibios, please do some research before purchasing. I've also heard that Jamma Boards and Excellent Arcade are good, safe places to order from, but again please do some research before purchasing.
Neo Geo X:
- SD Card Adaptor Mod: The Neo Geo X system has a modified sd card slot that allows you to use extra game packs. The first and last pin are swapped, and the second and second to last pin are swapped on the sd cards. This video describe how to create a modified microsd adapter for use with normal microsd cards. This video describes how to convert your roms over to the Neo Geo X format. You can also follow this thread over at the Neo Geo forums.
- Everdrive N8: Famicom/NES Version The N8 Flash cart has been released for both the NES and famicom. You can use either cart on both systems using the correct converter. The famicom expansion audio works on the famicom natively and the NES with modification. It supports game genie cheats and FDS games as well. It uses the Cyclone II FPGA (like the Mega Everdrive), has 512KB for PRG/CHR, and 128k of battery-backed SRAM. Mappers can be updated via software updates. Also, the Famicom version uses microSD cards, and the NES version uses SD cards.
- The Powerpak made by BunnyBoy (widely known member of the nesdev boards) is a compact flash-based cart which allows most games to be played (I believe it was 95-98%?). Certain mappers do not work correctly, but the mapper files are stored on the flash card for easy upgrades. Saves are not handled automatically.
- InviteNES: Pre-order Rev. 2 here (Russian)/Info here: This famicom/Dendy (Russian NES) SD-based flash cart will work on an NES with an adapter. It uses the Cyclone II FPGA (similar to Mega Everdrive), has 2MB each for PRG/CHR, and 32 KB of battery-backed SRAM. All of the info is read off of the SD card which makes it easily updateable, and it also has a USB port for developers.
- IN PROGRESS: Munchausen Cart: A low cost 1MB MMC1 cart programmable via USB. This project went dead for a while, but was picked up and improved upon and is very close to production. This cart is designed for chiptunes and homebrews mostly. It is not meant to be a replacement for the Powerpak.
- Everdrive 64: SD Flash cart which can play all but 1 or 2 games. Supports all save types including FlashRAM with the latest BIOS Update.
- 64drive: CF or Micro SD Flash cart which can also play all but 1 or 2 games. Last I heard, it supports all save types including FlashRAM.
- NEO N64 Myth flash cart: Purchase here/Forums are here. Requires a NEO2-SD or similar NEO2 NDS flash cart. You can update it via their Nero Dual Programmer.
- C7060 Game Selector: contains more than 200 games, contains all Philips Videopac and Magnavox Odyssey2 games, and a lot of prototypes and homebrews, contains several games that haven't been available before on a multicart or the internet, on-screen game menu, works on all Videopac, Jopac and Odyssey2 consoles, works with the Voice, automatic PAL/NTSC selection for some games, search function, only new PCBs, new Eproms and new components have been used.
- 233-in-1 Odyssey 2 Multicart: a non-writeable, dip-switch cart that contains the entire library(?) and some homebrews including Amok! Compatible with the Voice and Plus games for the g7400. (This replaces the 128-in-1 multicart) At $42.50, this is a steal.
- Soren Gust has a RAMcart which is a writable DIY cart. He also has a Flashcart in the works, and a Megacart which seems to be a DIY multicart.
- IN PROGRESS: Project PSIO: A project that aims to use the PIO port on the PS1 to play full commercial games from an SD card. Beta PSIOs are being produced right now, and soon donators will have access to them!
- DISCONTINUED: Apparently there have been a number of flash carts for this system, info is here. There's instructions on ordering the latest flash cart, but he has apparently been sold out of them for years now.
- Saturn USB Datalink: Interesting device that interfaces with the Action Replay Plus cart. Allows dumping of BIOS and transferring of saves between the PC and Saturn. Allows homebrew code to be uploaded to a Saturn from a PC. This will not allow you to run full commercial games, but it is pretty cool nonetheless.
- NOTES: Here is a list of the games which use special chips. No commercial game was released in the US with more than 48mb, but 128mb will allow you to play Star Ocean and other fan translations.
- SD2SNES: SD Flash cart which can play up to 96Mb games, but does support ROM sizes up to 128Mb. The most interesting thing about this cart is that it emulates some of the special chips listed above. Currently these are supported: BS-X memory map, DSP1/1b, DSP2, DSP3, DSP4, ST-010, Cx4, MSU1, S-RTC. SuperFX is currently being worked on. It can be purchased from the fine retailers of Krikzz's products.
- Super UFO Pro 8: A lower cost SD flash cart that has created quite a stir. At one point it was rumored to run many of the special chips listed above including the SuperFX. But people have been stating this simply isn't true. It appears to have a T-adapter like a lot of these flash carts do, but it only works with DSP-1. One of the most interesting abilities of this card is to save/load states at any point in a game. Available at Amazon.
- Super Everdrive: SD Flash cart which can play up to 48Mb games. Does not support games with special chips except for DSP-1 (if you order it with the DSP-1 chip installed). BIOS can be flashed using JTAG. Saves are handled automatically.
- SNES PowerPak: CF Flash cart which can play up to 128mb games. Does not support games with special chips except for DSP-1. BIOS chip is socketed, so it can be reflashed using an EPROM programmer. You can also send it in to retrousb.com and pay shipping to have it reflashed. The mapper files are stored on the FAT file system (easy updating). Saves are NOT handled automatically (can be a pain).
- NEO SNES/SFC Myth Flash cart: Purchase here/Forums are here. Supports games up to 64Mb. Does not support games with special chips except for DSP-1 (you must attach a DSP-1 cartridge, similar to the old T-adapters, to use DSP-1 games). Requires a NEO2-SD or similar NEO2 NDS flash cart. You can update it via their Nero Dual Programmer.
- INVITESNES: SD-based flash cart on a Russian site. Plays up to 48Mb roms with space for 128Mb. This one has CX-4 compatibility, and is a much lower cost.
- DISCONTINUED: Super Flash Cart 64M: A 64Mb Parallel flash cart from the old tototek line. A T-Connector is also available to play DSP-1 games with.
- IN PROGRESS: A RCA Studio 2 multicart is currently being worked on by RCA's production manager. He is also a new AA member, and gave us all quite the interesting read in this thread.
- Turbo Everdrive: A Micro SD-based flash cart. It has 8MB of rom space, works with Street Fighter 2, and reportedly works with all of the SuperGrafx titles on the SuperGrafx (note that the USB version does not fit in the SuperGrafx).
- NEO Power PC-Engine flash cart: Purchase here/Forums are here. There are a few different versions of this, the best being the 128Mb with the added save functionality which includes 2Mb of RAM for games that save, ex: Populous.
- Low Cost Flash HuCard: A very cheap 8 Mb USB flash cart that works on both PC Engines and Turbografx 16 machines. Allows you to play all commercial games except Street Fighter 2. No load times and low voltage consumption make this ideal for handhelds like the TurboExpress. You can also purchase a board only (except for microcontroller) version. Soldering seems a little complex for this one, but I'm sure some people here can handle it.
- DISCONTINUED: PCE Pro 32MB: A 32Mb Parallel flash cart from the old tototek line.
- VecMulti: A Micro SD Flash cart that has extra RAM so that it can play Animaction as well as the rest of the library of carts. This is the one to get.
- Reproduction Vectrex Overlays are currently being produced. Click here to purchase overlays and other fun stuff (if you are an AtariAge member click here). More overlays are in the works, you can track the progress at this AA thread.
- There is a recently released vectrex 72 in 1 multicart from Andy(?). It has more games than sean kelly's multicart. You can get it here.
- DISCONTINUED: Vecflash: This was available at first as a Serial Flash cart that could hold up to 15 games (+menu), and was later released as a USB Flash cart that could hold up to 31 games (+menu) at one time.
- DISCONTINUED: Sean Kelly's multicart v2.0 is available for $75 shipped on ebay whenever he gets a new batch completed, otherwise the price on ebay is usually double from resellers. This has every released cart on it(besides Animaction), plus a good many homebrews.
- FlashBoy Plus (direct link, you can order through vectrex.biz): a USB flash cart which holds one game at a time. It has 16Mb which is enough to hold all commercial games. The Plus version supports saves.
- IN PROGRESS: WonderSwan Flash Masta cart is currently being worked on. One of the developers is hoping to have something working by the end of 2013!
- NOTES: Spotted a new wonderswan linker on yahoo japan auctions, hopefully there's more to come!
- DISCONTINUED: WonderWitch was a development kit meant for amateur devs. Some homebrews that were created using the WonderWitch will only work with the WonderWitch.
- DISCONTINUED: Wonder Magic is more of a general purpose flash cart.
