I'll third that - it's a great upgrade and quite simple to install. New firmware and features are still in development as well.

Hello Fernando

IIRC Bombjack was sold on cart as Bombjake. You don't need more then 64kB for the cartridge version.

BTW you can also try this one in your XEGS.

I believe candle said there would be another run. I can't remember where the thread was. Too many new projects to keep track of.

It seems I read of a simple "piggyback and done" upgrade; with the "right" dram chips. I cannot find it though, so I may be daydreaming - I do that a lot. This would be good for people like me (dangerous with a soldering iron), as I have easy access to this:
