THAT is slick packaging right there! well worth the wait! lynxman youve outdone yourself.

anyone know if we'll be able to put the board in a dummy lynx casing? might have to do some dremeling for the usb port.

 

but it'd be a shame to hide that tasty red board :P

That's really nice! :) Just recived my tracking number so I should have mine soon.

 

I noticed the static electricity warning on the manual in those pics. Does anyone know if static damage is a real concern? Do I need to be overly cautious when handeling?

 

I was under the impression that modern ICs were not anywhere near as suseptable to static damage as they used to be many years ago?

think the currency exchange was around $130 shipped. Don't quote me on that though! LOL

With shipping to North America they were 97 Euro each. As of last week that was $135 US or $155 Cnd. :(

That has nothing to do about how old the circiuts are. Its only about the Type (40xx would be damage easier as other Types)

 

As i made lynxopoly i dont discharge me every time i use the card.

 

The main thing is: dont go over a carpet. That will charge you.

Be careful with handling. The components are not filled with plastic, glue, lacquer or something.

If you use the whole to remove it, and insert it by holding it on the edge, there should be no problems with the card.

 

 

and....I dont have carpets :)

It is just a warning. (And as far as i know the Skunkboard have some ESD Warning inside the manual.)

 

It is always a good idea if you handle with electronic components or PCBs to give some attention to the ESD.

 

My Prototype Boards are all still running, and at the beginning sometimes my firmware have done some stuppid thinks like access to the FlashRom while insert into the Lynx. This is not funny if 2 output lines drive different signal value... But they still running.

You are from Australia. I think there is no place on earth which is more far away from Germany. :D Maybe it need some years! Or maybe days. :D

develop a game... or load a rom and play it! :)

 

I had the entire collection minus the super rare one T-tris and Mini Golf. I tried coding in high school, not so good at it. But for some reason I am still compelled to buy a Flashcart.

This looks like a great device! It is about time something like this came out for Lynx. If only the Jaguar were so open...

You missed the Skunkboard for the Jag then?

T-Tris rare? Are you joking? Dont trust what ppl claim on ebay.

You can still buy it (no only) from the authors.

I don´t think that they are super rare.

 

I got T-tris and Mini Golf at the 16/32 webshop some Month ago.

Maybe its just more a matter of me being cheap :)

Super rare... or just super expensive?? ;)

 

There's no such thing as a "rare" Lynx ROM image, which is one good reason to order a the flashcart ;) No more paying over price eBay sellers for XXXX GAME - **[email protected]@k RARE***
