Just started back to work and was hoping to place order but now like the CC2 this will skyrocket in price.

Need the Harmony equivalent of the CC2 and 3 to get prices back down to earth.

Sorry Collectors seeking HIGHER paydays for your cuttle carts but someday we will have them

I can easily afford the price, I was just busy the past few weeks buying Vectrex's, Colecovision and Intellivision stuff, to the tune of several thousand $$$...

I bet I know which one. :)

The CC3 I ordered should be at my house either today or tommorow.....but it's not for me. It's going over to England for another AA member.

Jay, since you have experience with PCB's or maybe at least designing them (i think).

How difficult would it be to design a new pcb for a new multicart, maybe even using an sd card. but without directly stealing Chad Schells design?

Does the CC3 pcb 'pre-programmed' with any data/program/info or is it 'off the shelf' parts and the sd card is the brain and what makes it work?

I'm sorry, Rev ... I must have missed this question earlier.

The CC3 is among the more sophisticated multi-carts. It contains a microcontroller with integrated flash memory, and as GroovyBee said earlier, this is the "brain" of the CC3. When you select a cartridge from the menu, it is copied from the SD card into a RAM chip so it can be executed by the Intellivision, with the microcontroller handling the decoding and bankswitching. It's much more complex than the board I designed for the Aquaricart, which simply banks in an ordinary EPROM. I was able to work some "CC3-like" features into my software, but my goal with the hardware was to make it as simple and as inexpensive as possible, and it's quite primitive by comparison.

It's very possible to create a new multi-cart along the same lines as the CC3 or the AtariMax 5200 Ultimate SD cartridge, but it will probably have to be offered at a similar price point, since it would require similar components and a similar design. It took six years for Chad Schell to sell off his initial run of CC3 boards, so anyone with the skills to create such a cartridge would have to go into it knowing that they may not get a return on their investment for several years, and that a large percentage of the (very small) potential market has already been satisfied by the CC3. Whether anyone would be willing to take that risk, I don't know.

Rev, if people don't buy the game, we may go on to publishing for other systems sooner rather than later.

There is no reason to wait if you want to buy the game to play, as the box and overlays will be available separate for no difference in cost from the CIB package.

Orders have been slow coming for D2K?

$150 is a big pill to swallow for some folks. Especially if they think they have plenty of time to get it when they are eventually liquid.

I just decided to see if something like this even existed about a week ago. Talk about bad timing! I'm hoping that I'll get lucky down the road on eBay or the marketplace here. :-(

Also, I totally understand the economics of something like this - I'm hope in kick starter will help down the pad keep projects like this viable.

I didn't even know that this existed until a few months ago, and $150 was indeed initially a tough pill to swallow. That being said, I still dawdled for a few weeks once I was pretty sure I was willing to "Schell" out the cash :-(

Lesson learned.

With respect to D2K Arcade...I'm also holding out for the Collectors edition. Hopefully it won't sell out before it's released. Would be nice to know a final price, though.

Same here ... thought about buying a play and a collect, but I have a wife and can only justify one so waiting for the Collector's Edition.
