What's It Worth? Arcadia Supercharger?

Recommended Posts

Downloading right now, thanks for doing the work for me. I had looked for that some in the past and didn't find where it had been done. I have heard that CD couldn't be ripped like that. This should be freaking sweet. I hereby abandon this project and differ to those that have already done this. Your effort is much appreciated.

 

No problem!

 

Using a harmony cart is great, but it is also fun to use the vintage Starpath still. :)

I use both my Harmony and Starpath pretty regularly for "The Official Frogger".

 

That title alone is worth purchasing one of these two great pieces of hardware.

 

Please let me know how the MP3s work out for you!

 

Best regards,

Trem

 

I have played a few of these from my phone already and so far everything works great. Thanks again for making this happen. :thumbsup:

I have a Supercharger that I bought in the late 90s and I used to use that makewav program. I had to solder a switch to a chip, however, and flip it one way to use OEM Supercharger games, and another way to use any other game. It was amazing at the time.

Its a cool option for those that can't get a Harmony cart for some reason, or you already have a Supercharger and don't want to spend the money on Harmony. Why do you have to add a switch? I haven't looked into this as I had a Harmony before a Supercharger, but I have seen this from time to time and wondered why you had to do that.

The Supercharger uses a certain memory location to switch banks. In an unmodified Supercharger, whenever that memory location is accessed, it automatically switches banks. Some non-Supercharger games use that location for other stuff. If you load one of those games into a Supercharger, when the game reaches that bit of code, the Supercharger will switch banks and the game will crash.

Stella Gets A New Brain $5

Supercharger $20

 

Looks like you might end up paying over $100 more than it's worth. Sorry to hear that :(

I also have to admit, I haven't touched my Supercharger in years. :(

Way high. Not sure on Stella, but I picked up mine for $10.

$20 with free shipping is high? You're some kind of bargain hunter. If Stella's worth $10 (shipped?) then that leaves $10 (shipped) for the boxed Supercharger. Way high? If a nice boxed Supercharger isn't worth $10 shipped (a large chunk of which would go to actual shipping) then it might be a financially-sound idea to put it straight into the garbage can.

 

Here's a dreamer with the same thing for $300!

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 2308217476681?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=230821747668&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Granted that's completely ridiculous, but I submit it as an better example of way high.

 

Here's one with nothing extra for $52 shipped

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 1307505822231?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=130750582223&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Here's one for with nothing extra for $59.50 shipped

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 1109372129431?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=110937212943&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Here's one with nothing extra for $69 shipped

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 3803786384551?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=380378638455&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Here's one with nothing extra for $104 shipped

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 3005824973401?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=300582497340&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

 

Here's one that's complete in box (no CD) that's currently $16 (shipped) and has 4 days to go.

eBay Auction -- Item Number: 1109382115351?ff3=2&pub=5574883395&toolid=10001&campid=5336500554&customid=&item=110938211535&mpt=[CACHEBUSTER]

 

Last one is a nice box that I've never seen. He's within $4 of being "way high" though, the auction's not over, and there's 4 more days!

 

 

Where can one buy Stella CDs for $10? Shipped?

50 bucks to ship it? Obviously they are trying to rip people off, the rarity of a game or item should not effect how much it costs to ship it, shipping sost is based on how much it weighs and is worth if you insure it for it's value and 50 bucks is way to much for anything.

Hard to believe you can't find all the Super Charger Games in WAV or MP3 format somewhere on the internet like you can find ISOs for systems liike Genesis, Dreamcast, Gamecube and Wii and other systems.

 

I'm glad I still have my Super Charger and the best games that I backed up to cassettes and kept the originals too of the games I liked, did not keep Fireball because it was just another boring Breakout type game with a dude instead of a line or paddle.
