I don't think it will. And putting the PCB inside without protection would be dangerous since any kind of contact with the enclosing / touching it with fingers/static can cause damage.

If it is important to you, I can offer you send the V1 and we'll send a V2 if you compensate for the shippment & price difference.

 

And don't forget the modification that is necessary for the!cart (V1 or V2) to work in the Atari 800.

the!cart V1 _will_ work in the Atari 400 without modification with the lid open and something fumbled into the switch hole to constantly press it down.

Hi All,

 

Important message. 

 

Sometimes it is right to reconsider something you wrote. For me this is such a moment.

 

When I came back from vacation I was VERY surprised to see a package from mega-hz, with my ordered Carts. I really did not know what to think, although I remember my first thought was: hey that is very sportive and kind that after my complaints and cancellation of my order, he still sends it.

 

I already explained myself in this post: http://atariage.com/...idge/?p=4015949

 

I must say though that the fact Wolfram (megahz) decided to send me the package no matter what, really impressed me. I want to send him a big THANK YOU, and a true apology for all the fuzz from my side.

 

Also a big thank-you to Peter (JAC!) for being a friend and his endless contribution to this project.

 

Greetz

ProWizard,

I'm so grateful for your change of mind. Your such a great ambassador to the 8-bit and "The!Cart".

It's comforting to know of all the other multicarts, "The!Cart" seems to have given you the most excitement and fun.

 

Thanks,

Doug

While I wait for my v2 THE!CART, I went and stole the lettering off of the v2 shell and modified the newer v1 shell with it.

 

Quick test print looks pretty good :)

Now i run out of Flash-Chips (because Mouser only had 63 Chips on Stock, as i ordered).

I have to order 35 Chips, hoping they arrive quick.

Looks very good! You really seem to like the new minimalistic logo and design. :-)

 

If you enhance the temperature of your print bed to 70 degrees Celsius, maybe you can get the same glossy surface that we produce here.

So I'm ready to revisit a flash cart solution to not need a PC or laptop. I'm out of the loop on the latest.  With respect to all creators to give us multiple options, is there a feature comparison or pros/cons list of the current options?  How does the latest "the!cart" compare to the capabilities of the brewing academy's "Ultimate Cart" or AtariMax, and the ones I'm likely unfamiliar with?

Thanks, yes I really like the new design.

 

With the standard build mat there was no possibility for gloss, but I've made a switch last week to a PEI surface and...    :)

Some inaccuracies in the SIDE column: I'm not aware of an 8GB CF card size limit, nor the 64 entry limit on folders - assuming the limitations pertain to the loader and not DOS (although supplied DOS is SDX and imposes no such limits either). SIDE doesn't natively support ATR files, meanwhile: it requires U1MB for that.
