hi there

which price shipped Milano, Italy ?

Not too much. No more than $10 extra, and based on actual price.

Has anyone tried Frogger 1.25 on a real Arcadia (as opposed to in emulation)? On the real thing, my frog dies within a second of landing on a log or lily pad.

I spent some time modifying an Arcadia PCB to accept an EEPROM. I wanted to make sure the multicart wasn't somehow affecting the results (stranger things have happened). Anyway, the results were the same, so unfortunately, it looks like Frogger 1.25 doesn't work on a real machine. I'll keep the game on the multicart as an extra.

Current (final?) ROM list. I need to do a final check of the switch positions for each game (today hopefully), then I can finalize the labels (this weekend hopefully)

It looks like I may need some additional donor cartridges. I may not need them right away, but it would be nice to have them, to be able to offer choice between long and short cartridges.

 

If anyone has a few (the more the better to save on overall shipping costs), I'd be interested in purchasing them for $5 US each, shipped to Canada (shipping costs are negotiable, especially if you have a large quantity). Any common loose carts (short or long) are fine, as long as the condition of the cartridge is fine (label condition doesn't matter as long as it doesn't affect the cartridge).

 

Thanks!

Mobile Soldier Gundam

 

I'm not actually in the market for the multicart, but this title caught my eye--specifically, the wording. Based on a Google search, it looks like this is the accepted English title for the game (which, being a Japan-exclusive release, by Bandai, had no official English title). While "Mobile Soldier Gundam" is a literal translation of the Japanese title, "Kidou Senshi Gundam," it is not the official English title for the Gundam property, which is "Mobile Suit Gundam" and has been so for decades (the English phrase "mobile suit" actually occurs in the Japanese dialogue of the original anime). Is there a particular reason that the Arcadia game is known as "Mobile Soldier Gundam" to the English-speaking Arcadia community? Is it just that, well, in the 30 years since the game's release, no English-speaking Arcadia owner has known what Gundam is (or at least cared enough to suggest changing the commonly held translation)?

A couple of updates:

 

After a few minutes of research ;) I'm going with Mobile Suit Gundam. I'm sending the files to the printer today to get the labels printed.

 

I decided it would be wise to add sockets for the EPROM, so it could be updated/replaced in the future if necessary. The sockets should be here tomorrow, and won't take too long to install. This entails a bit of grinding work to be done to the inside of the cartridge casings, but not too much.

 

The ROM list is pretty much 100% completed. There's a couple of demos that I need to check again, where results on a real machine don't match results in an emulator, so I just need to make sure that at least the files I'm using are the correct ones.

 

I'm upping the bounty for common cartridges to $8 US each, including shipping to postal code L0R 2C0 in Canada, paid via PayPal. So, if you have 1, 5, or 20 available, I'll pay you $8, $40, or $160 respectively (or I'll give credit towards the purchase of a multicart). Ideally, I'd like to purchase about 20 more in total.

 

I won't have a chance to do any work on these next week, but I should have these ready to go by July 13. I'm anticipating sending out a bunch of PMs on about July 9 to those who have expressed interest. Hopefully I'll have pictures of the first units by the end of this week.

By the way, I'm not just looking for 1, 5, or 20. Those are examples. I'll take what you've got to offer.
