*UPDATED 12th of August* Current Timescale and process: 1) I have uploaded a video showing usage, shipping costs are now outlined below. 2) I will post within 7 days and give you confirmation of it leaving with an image through PM. Most US orders appear to be arriving within 5-10 business days! 3) We all get to enjoy our multicards! We seem to have had quite the surge in Magnavox Odyssey interest in recent weeks! For a long time I have wanted to get a hold of one of Boojakascha's Magnavox Odyssey Multicard . You can see more about his projects for the Magnavox Odyssey here on his website: http://www.boojakascha.ch/index.php?page=magnavox_projects And also his Youtube channel here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCRNVSMZe1V3yUmIA9NGB3kg Where he reviews light guns and light gun games. And also here where he shows off the multicard: My reasons for this project are simple: a) its the closest thing to a "romcart" you can get for the system. b) Boojakascha has provided files for its reproduction, and naturally has had it working on the system. c) Games for the Odyssey is really really rare. I've only seen a handful of games go on ebay since I've got the system myself, and I've failed in all attempts to win any of them. While the base games are ok, a lot of the extra features is unique to the other game cards. This search becomes harder if you are outside the United States. d) If I go ahead with my RPG homebrew, I want everyone to be able to play on the same level without having to hunt for game cards, and also make it an enjoyable experience. If I could include the multicard with it, it would also allow those users the opportunity to enjoy all the features of the original Odyssey, without relying on fighting for ebay rarities. Production of these things is always cheaper in bulk, so what I want to do is to take the cost of buying a big order of them, and then pass on the savings to everyone else. I've been in contact with Boojakascha to ensure that what I get is going to be working as designed before I make the order, but I'm now looking for who might be interested in purchasing one (or more) of these so I can get a good sense of how many I should order. I will be getting at least 20, but the more I can get the cheaper it will be. I've already got quotations from several companies who will be ready to go with the order as soon as I finalise it, so they could be ready to go as early as the end of June. How much will it cost? I'm currently setting the cost per unit at £20/€23/$25 USD/$35 AUS, this includes VAT for production at 20% and delivery to me, and this will not include postage and shipping to you. See below for Shipping Costs. Delivery costs and time? Please note due to the current world crisis, not all services will be running as normal, expect potential delays. Stated times and tracking will be based on pre-crisis expectations. Signed for services may have different procedures (in UK, the postman marks it as delivered for you). To save costs, I'll be using pre used packaging where possible. Based on quantities of 1: United Kingdom: £3 for Royal Mail 1st Class signed for, or £5 for 24 hour Tracked and signed. (Total: £23 or £25) Europe: €4.50 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for €11. Both services is listed as 3-5 business days. (Total: €27.50 or €34) Australia (mainland): $AUS 7.50 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for $AUS 18. Both services is listed as 6-7 business days. (Total: $AUS 42.50 or $AUS 53) United States (mainland): $5 for regular mail, or tracked and signed for $14. Both services is listed as 6-7 business days. (Total: $30 or $39) Quantities of 2 or more: If you are from United States, 2 multicards will now cost $65 for tracking - this has gone up by $2.5 because of recent currency exchange changes. slydc: Requested 2 copies and is reserved - we have PM'ed about cost when you are ready to pay. Arcadeshopped: Requested 5 copies, due to value, for insurance purposes you can only get the tracked and signed service for $18 - Your total will be: $143. Where would payment be expected? Send money via paypal to [email protected], under friends/family if you can - as you are all my friends, and you are getting this as close to cost as I can afford to. Please state your name and address in the note - and your username so I can tick you off! Don't worry about the amount I receive, I have rounded up costs slightly to compensate for this. If you are unable to use paypal let me know what other potential options you would like to try to pay in. What if I want more than one? Let me know where in the world you live, and I'll give you an updated shipping price. Will this work with the Rifle games? Yes, this was one of Boojakascha's original purposes for making it, I don't have the Rifle for the odyssey myself to test it with, but it should work as intended. What games does it play? You should be able to play all the original game card variants for the original Magnavox Odyssey system, and many of the homebrew that has been produced since. Note that some homebrew have custom hardware and one or two have custom game cards; these will NOT likely to be replicated with this multicard. The switches may also help to produce unique effects, but I don't think this has been documented yet. When is the earliest this could be ready? I have all the units, but I will individually test them before sending them out for verification. I will aim to go out as often as I can to ship, but might be every few days to avoid exposing myself too much outside. I will send a PM with an image of your package on the day it leaves my house. Have you done anything like this before? Nope! But I always deliver on everything else I've done before, and I'm not going to disappear anytime soon. By taking the hit of the immediate cost myself I'm hoping we can all benefit. Who will receive it first? There should be enough for everyone who has currently requested some, once I've received them I will give details on how to pay. Due to the current crisis, I am avoiding going out where possible, but I will aim to send packages within 7 days of payment cleared. How will I be able to pay? Paypal is widely used and has always worked for me, but let me know if this is not possible. You can pay by paypal without having an account and using your regular bank details.

Hi, I'm working on a bankswitch card that supports multigames. I first made a normal 4k multicard using a 27C256 that holds 8 games, for testing purposes. Easy to make, and it worked fine... Because I have my own programmer, but not an UV eraser, I wanted to use a 29F010 EEprom that can be electrically erased. The pinout of this is (almost) the same as a 27C010. So I copied a few ROM's together and programmed the EEprom, but for some reason that didn't work on my Atari 2600. I used my programmer to read back the ROM file out of the chip, and tested it in Stella (32 in 1). That worked fine, so there doesn't seem to be anything wrong with programmed chip. Does anyone here have any experience using EEproms for DIY cartridges or mulitgame card, and what is the difference between using a EEprom and a normal Eprom (because the normal Eprom is working fine). Many thanks !!
