So, I want to have a complete 2600 Coleco cartridge collection. There is a never released "Looping" for the 2600, by Coleco, and there is an 8K rambin file. The game looks pretty good. It would look better as a cartridge on my shelf...
Here is what I'd like to do, and I was wondering if there is a snowball's chance in hell this will work (please confirm, I am a newbie):
1. I will be cleaning the sticker off a Coleco 2600 Donkey Kong cart and cracking it open for a surrogate cart.
2. I will use the RAMbin file for "Looping" that exists here on AtariAge.
3. I don't yet have an EPROM burner, but I plan to buy this one, or one like it:
KEE Willem EPROM Programmer PCB version PCB5.0
4. I plan to use 2732 EPROMs (4k x for the 8K cartridge.
5. I am going to use the PCB from OSH Park based on Joe Grand's design: 8k/16k/32k Bankswitch Cartridge
(note: I have both the Activision PCB and the one not claimed to be Activision....I assume I will use the non-Activision one?)
6. I have 3 each of the cartridge PCB boards, so I will put a ZIF socket in one of each (Activision and non-Activision) for testing burned EPROMs.
7. When I get a burned "Looping" EPROM that works, I will solder it into a cartridge PCB and put it in the white Coleco cartridge case, then print up a custom "Looping" label.
So, with the above work? What would you tweak? What advise would you give to a newbie?
P.S. If this all works, I will do the same with Atari 2600 Turbo by Coleco.
