  1. I think different led colors for read/write is a fantastic idea, Igor.
  2. Please, count me in for one of these units. Thank you.
  3. I just edited the first post adding several new available pins. Be sure to check both the updated list and the new picture.

  5. Label is not the only thing that is unique to the Japanese Klax release. Cart itself is unique, as the game is not stored in the standard Lynx ROM chip. The ROM chip used for Japanese Klax is bulkier than the standard one, which forced Atari Japan to create a custom cart for this game. This custom cart has a square bulk in the back to fit the new ROM chip and has no Fuji logo. Here is a picture of both Western Klax (top) and Japanese Klax (bottom). Manual and box art are also unique to the Japanese release of Klax, but the one I have available for trade is a loose cart, so no point in showing pictures of those items here. Actually there are two versions of Japanese Klax. One of them (the one I have available for trade) is identical to the Wester version in terms of content, but the other one shows notable differences such as the total absence of music and digitized sounds. That other version also lacks difficulty level selector. The specific differences are documented in this post from another thread: http://atariage.com/forums/topic/31147-strange-klax-cartridge/?do=findComment&comment=893638 I can testify as to the veracity of these facts, as I own myself one of those rare variation carts. Both cart versions look very much the same to the casual eye, but the green around the contact pins seems to be a givaway sign. Here are both variants next to each other. Left one is the cart containing the standard version and right one is the cart containing the cut down version. Again, the cart I have available for trade is the one containing the standard version of Klax, not the cut down version. Yes in the case of Shaghai and Gates of Zendocon. For the differences between Western and Japanese carts, you can read the above comments.

  9. Sorry, double post. Please delete or lock this thread.
  10. Here you are: https://www.facebook.com/groups/lynxfans/permalink/2110086402395051/?comment_tracking=%7B%22tn%22%3A%22O%22%7D
  11. Carl, should we take this as a hint that newly re-stocked games will come in curved lip carts? If so, will those curved lip carts be the same ones used in the Zaku re-release and recent Telegames re-releases? I'm really curious to know if you all guys are actually sourcing carts from the same place, which might open up interesting oportunities for homebrewers out there.
  12. Has anyone else noticed how the cart in the new production run of Zaku and the newly minted carts coming from Telegames are exactly identical? They have the same texture, exact same dimensions, and even have the same little square mark on the lower part of the right edge, wich is probably where the hole is placed through which plastic is injected in the mould. This, together with the fact that Telegames started releasing games in new curved lip carts for the first time in 25 years on the very same month that Zaku was re-released, makes me think that Super Fighter Team and Telegames are probably sourcing their carts from the same manufacturer. Maybe minimum order was too large for either of them and they decided to order together from the same manufacturer (¿maybe from China, since carts for the first production run for Zaku were also manufactured in China?) and split costs. Or maybe Super Fighter Team ordered more carts than they needed and they are selling their excess blank carts to third parties. Carl's anouncement that he will be re-stocking some of Songbird's releases with new carts and his apparent hint in another thread that they will be in curved carts make me wonder if his games will be released in the same carts Zaku and Telegames are apparently using? Not that I think that any of this is wrong, quite the contrary in fact, but I'm really curious about the story behind these carts. Would be nice if Brandon, Carl or Pete could shed some light on this topic.
  13. Wait, I just checked again and someone actually bought that listing!? Poor sucker. Well, I guess the person behind the 'Retroriginals' eBay shop will not have any problem to pay this month's rent, specially if some other loser buys those other crazy overpriced listings for Desert Strike and Double Dragon. http://www.ebay.com/itm/312232955156 http://www.ebay.com/itm/312232955851
  14. Telegames UK site does not show top bar with online shop categories until you login. A mistake in my opinion, because that's leading many people to believe that Telegames has no online shop. Here is a direct link to their online Lynx catalog, which you can browse without logging in. http://www.telegames.co.uk/shop/index.php?route=product/category&path=324_63_64&sort=pd.name&order=ASC&limit=100 Whatever you do, don't buy from ebayers flipping the cart right now, when you can buy straight from Telegames for half the price. Here's an example of some dude asking triple the original price (original price is £49.99 but he's asking £149.99). https://www.ebay.com/itm/312232956782
  15. That's true, those printed glossy booklets add a lot of value to those sets. Not only that, those original releases also came with nifty Telegames catalogs in the form of folded color brochures. Yes, depending on their scarcity, they may end up being a very interesting rarity. Even so, I still think 1993 curved lip carts for Double Dragon, Desert Strike and Super Off Road will remain the most valuable, specially CIB ones.
