I was playing around this evening and I found that Tursi's "Multicart" (shown below) will work without a 32K expansion.  I remember a couple of you console-only guys wishing you could get in on some of the action... this might be a route for you to consider.

Yep, yep. Him and I worked on that quite a while back. Lots of interesting things he did there with the menu and VDP. I helped with getting all the binaries put together and testing them. They're all 8K, BTW. And some had protection to keep from being put into a super cart or write-to-rom bank switching carts.. We had to fix those.

I build these when folks ask for them too--and I've even made proper labels for the cartridge. . .

Tursi only wrote the menu program. Sometimes99er did the layout and graphics, and Acadiel created the compilations. The menu program is also available for anyone else who'd like to use it - the current version also scans GROMs, which I added when I was preparing to release the UberGROM.

 

I see it's not on my website like it's supposed to be, but it SHOULD be here on the forum somewhere. :) I'll update my page later. :)

The menu program is now up at http://harmlesslion....tware/multicart - for anyone who wants to make their own compilations. (Note! This is the menu program ONLY and not a compilation).

 

I had to make a small fix, so it's version 5 (or 105 with my usual numbering scheme) - this improves the reliability of launching GPL software.

I'd like to see what your label looks like!

Man, I'd love one of those. What do they usually run (cost wise)?

I build the cartridges for $30 each, shipped to a US address (a bit more for other countries, based on the actual postal cost)

I have everything on Hard Drive (SCSI) but wish I could afford the Carts.

Wanted to make a label for the module:

 

Today I have been playing around with printing labels size is 9.30cm / 1.50cm for the front and 9.30cm / 2.30cm for the top.

 

Note for the Bank selection the \ /  / /  \ \  / \  are the position of the switches on the Multicart.

Result:
If you want to print the top label then print with 10.30cm and 2.30cm size, use a tool like InfraView.

The source of the label is two posts back, just need to be printed on sticker paper.
