Update:

 

I'm preparing a production-run of PCB's.

The PCB fits in a standard ATARI-cartridge.

Labels (top and front) are included.
 
The cartridge, you need to do this yourself, or use the PCB as it is.
 
-PAL/NTSC rom using the BW-switch (standard).
-or the patched NTSC-only version with PAL-colors.
 

Price will be between 10-15 euro, more news about this later.
Shipping-costs are 3 or 4 euro worldwide.

 

Ridiculous..... registered letter-mail costs 15 euro extra.....

I think nobody wants this.....

Ok.

 

Current status:

Waiting for parts to arrive, this can take up to 4 weeks..... :-(

 

Price:

15 euro including shipping worldwide, using paypal.
I create a page with details on my homepage when I'm ready to ship.
This is as low as I can go.

 

What do you get:

-PCB for use in standard Atari cartridge or use it just as it is.

-2 labels, top and front, printed on quality sticker-paper, to be cut out by yourself.

-Standard shipping in a small bubble envelop, no tracking.

What a great game.

 

Please put me on the list for an NTSC with PAL colors.

 

 

There's a dead(always was) Jungle Hunt cart here that needs a fresh new game.  Out of curiosity- do other folks have donor shells ready to go?  If so, what were they?

Small update:

 

I have received most parts, so I can start pre-assembling the boards.

Still waiting for the EPROM's to arrive, so please hang-on.

 

As soon as I get them, I will send out emails about how to continue.

 

Thanks,

Sijmen.

Hi, there is no limited run.
I make them as orders come in.
Next weekend pcb's 41-60 are made and emails go out.

Just drop me a email and check my homepage.
And I put you on the list.

I have enough for 80 games.
First to run dry are eproms....
But the next shipment is on its way.
:-P

cool.

Its nice to make something for the 2600.
Wanted to do this since I was a kid....

And I do not mind making them for almost cost-price.
It makes me more then happy that people like the game.

Some say it could be a lost game, never released.
:-D

Oops.  I see I'm not alone in applying my label upside down.  Neat game.  Now I need to rustle up a friend for some competition.

I do PCB + stickers only.
You need a donor cartridge or use it as it is.
Check my homepage for more info and how to order.

I have ordered new parts, so don't worry.

Grtz, Sijmen

Yes, that is correct, the PCB fits only in an Atari-made cartridge.
Silver, red, picture or text-label.
It is mentioned on my homepage and on the small manual I send out.

But I can understand it can easily be over-read...

 

Enjoy the game and thanks for the support !
