I need to buy a pin connector for an Atari 2600 emulator Im building, which is hard, I bought a 24 pin edge connector, but it was the wrong size. I need to know how thick the board is, the size of each pin, and so on. I know that its 24 pins, and I also know that I need to have it be 3.5x1cm to fit in the dust shield. And simply put, I dont know how to open a cartridge and open it myself, and I dont want to risk destroying one either.
