Recommended Posts

So what are we looking at?

I would say : one of the best news (and afaik, the best in my opinion) in the Lynx scene for this year.

Yes, its a Lynx Flash Card.

 

USB, 115200Baud, 512K Flash, compatible to Lynx I and II, 93C46 for High Scores (up/download via USB)

 

And its 100% made by the Lynxman. :cool:

 

The Hardware is 98% finished. The Software around 80%. I have to add a Bootloader for Firmware update.

The Card is controlled by a µCom.

 

It is (of cause) possible to load all kind of games, 128/256/512K.

Flashcard- stores one game at a time playable till you power off?

mostly used for dev stuff.

 

OR

 

 

can i store lots of lynx games on there at once, like a multicart?

 

that's what I'd really like!! a lynx multi cart with tons of room!

maybe SD card support.... Imagine tons of lynx games on

one 1GB sd card!

 

sweet!

:rolling: A Gig? That's rich... You could probably store every Lynx title ever made on a 64 Meg card, UNCOMPRESSED! ;)

 

I agree with the sentiment though - a multi-cart would be soooo cool! :)

You're right, i didn't do the math. What's the biggest lynx game size about a half a meg?

Maybe the multi cart could have a picture viewer and mod player built into it to use all

that extra space! :D

Hi Lynxman,

 

I think it looks great!

You've made a pretty cool PCB too, I wish I had the tools to do that. Did you use a thick PCB?

Do you use the comlynx to upload games to it?

Nice to see some new Lynx hardware. This won't fit in a Lynx I as the xtal is probably too high.

 

But I like the idea of USB. This is probably much faster to use for developers than my cart.

 

What worries me is that the software is 80% finished. Usually you finish 80% in 20% of the time and doing the last 20% takes 80% of the time.

Yes, thick PCB.

 

Upload Game with USB-wire.

No.

 

You can insert and remove, but you should be very carefulcause you don´t have to open the door complete. You only have to open around 30-45°.

Please see attached pic. 2-3mm free space.

 

I do not recommend for use in Lynx I. But it is possible.

No, the 20% are "only" the Bootloader for Firmeware update. The "System-Software" workes fine.

You don´t need the Bootloader for upload Games.

 

Kind Regards Bernd
