I'd just like to confirm I'm interested in a 1292 adapter. :)  +1 for the numbers, if that helps.

Thank you very much! You are on the list.  :thumbsup:

Please let me do the Interton VC4000 adapters first, then I have to reproduce some Dragon/CoCO Multi-carts and I have to go on with the Vectrex Controller kits, before I start the 1292 adapter. It's getting a bit out of hand at the moment.  :skull:  :rolling:

All people on the waiting list have been served. Waiting list is obsolete now.

I still have some items left and ready to be delivered.

 

Still looking for a cheap 1292-console for adapter development.

Good news. You'll be pleased with it. Smaller, sleker, and no auto-centering joysticks.

This iswhere you see that Interton's claims to have been first are moot : games like Bowling were made with no-autocentering sticks in mind... :D

I'll report!

I'm buying it primarily to be able to develop and test an adapter for the mulit-cart, not so much for really playing. I don't have time for that anymore, I'm afraid. Making things is eating up all the time. :skull: I'll have to reduce this!

:)

There it is:
 
Extension Cartridge for 1292 Advanced Programmable Video System family available
 
The new adapter for the Dragon Multi-Cart addresses a variety of consoles, the 1292 AVPS-family. As I learnt, compatible consoles were made by many manufacturers and were named 1292 APVS or later 1392 APVS or completely different, like RADOFIN, ACETRONIC (MPU-1000 and MPU-2000), PRINZTRONIC (VC-6000) , HANIMEX (HMG-1292 and HMG-1392), FOUNTAIN  (Force 2) and more, often using the same Radofin XM-2050 board inside. http://www.videogame...htm#page=models shows them all.

1292 APVS and INTERTON VC4000 are compatible and running the same software, but the cartridge connectors are different in format and wiring. 
A few examples:
1292playing01_350.jpg 1292playing02_350.jpg 1292playing03_350.jpg 1292playing04_350.jpg
You can fire up your old console now, with all the games you never had!
 
Price US$12.99 plus shipping! Dragon Multi-Cart not included.

Did you mirror the rightmost picture on purpose, to see if anyone would spot that you did? :-)

 

Great work. I don't have any 1292 compatible system except the VC-4000 that I've already got the multicart for, but hopefully you'll open up to yet more buyers now.

:lol: Obviously I clicked around too much. Did not notice!

Maybe this brings back a little bit of life to these consoles, we'll see. Maybe a few new software titles? I mean, this really is old technology and to a certain extent maybe more interesting, than the already well-understood C64.

If not, no problem. I only made a few cartridges and half of them have already been ordered. That's fine!  ;)

There is a gentleman, who did some development-work (2 games): http://www.tempect.de/senil/

Got my new adapter today and it works just fine on my old Audiosonic. Great job Rolo! It is just nice that we can play also all the Interton games now on 1292 / 1392 consoles!

:grin: :thumbsup:

Thanks you very much!

No more discussion, if games of one console-family are compatible to the other. I read something about that in some old thread. People were not sure then.
