thanks for that, sorry i was put off as it costed the item and shipping before it gave an option to switch to something more reasonable so i didn't get that far in the process, i've done it now so joined the backorder queue, i didn't add the psu as i'd already bought the longer version of the usb cable you recommended and a usb adapter plug from amazon (same lead is available with free shipping from gameseek on ebay uk at £3.88 btw).
this is a dream device, it's as if it was designed for me i have a us /4a, speech unit, joysticks, dual tape leads, a load of carts and a flashrom 99 who hit the no 32k wall so this is absolute perfection.
i cant even begin to say how much i thank you for your work in doing this and i'm looking forward to when you open orders so i can purchase and finally put my /4a to the use it was intended.
can i just say i've had several of these printed cases from the same guy for different flashcarts, all have been great and arrived in the uk in a timely manor and undamaged. (and yes i'll be ordering one of these too).
No, sadly the Lynx cartridge port is more like a parellel port than a traditional cartridge port as you would find on other systems, which means you can't do anything funky like you can with the everdrive carts.
that's never been a problem for me, i love these flashcards so i can access all the games and if i find something i enjoy i try to buy the cart (which would save if it had one). i'm still cursing my harmony and coleco ultimate sd for what they have cost me in buying new (to me) games and hopefully it wont be long before i get the chance to start cursing yours for the same reason
i picked asteroids, purely from a financial standpoint i was happy to pay for pole position 2 but whilst asteroids is a great game it would have been well down my "must buy" list since i already own the cart on my 2600 and 800 so to me getting it as a pack in was a nice bonus.
Based on the pics, it looks like you should go straight to step #2 in the description above. That means if you carefully pry the plastic tabs, it would open. But be careful so you don't snap off the tabs, then you need to come up with another way to close it afterwards.
nothing wanted to play nicely so i jammed a screwdriver in and twisted it, plastic got a little gouged but it'll sand, it opened without any tabs breaking, turns out the rattle was two blobs of glue used instead of posts through the rear holes in the circuit board (looks the same as in the pics), anyway the board seems to fit firmly into place withing the housing but i'll give the card a test run naked first (with appropriate anti static measures) and check all is ok prior to snapping it all shut again.

i'm sure i'll have missed some but those are the ones i can recall, future plans include an amstrad cpc, something 128k from sinclair and an arcadia and a means to get activision's alter ego onto my portfolio (i had it on my old one but that got lost / stolen), i do have multiples of many of the main consoles (like 5 gamecubes and 7 ps2s) but haven't included them on the list along with an extensive collection of multi / flash carts and "backup devices" (like dr v64 or wondermagic) and of course a large collection of original carts / discs for all systems.
