Bally Astrocade Cartridges in Cassette Cases

Recommended Posts

Folks, I've made the J-cards as two (2) per page to save paper but I think I'll change them to one (1) per page to waste paper and save toner/ink. That way, folks won't be printing J-cards for cartridges they don't have.

Good idea!

Added a second Bally Basic J-card for the 6004 version that has the interface built in. You can carefully Dremmel holes into a cassete case for a Basic cart with interface to fit... sort of. :)

 

This one was a quick and rough test. You can make it look nicer if you take your time. The protruding LED and audio interface will not allow the case to fit snugly against another one.

These are looking very good. Do you have a complete Astrocade cartridge collection? Rather than using a Dremmel tool to make the hole, wouldn't it make more sense to use a drill bit? If you did, then you'd get a perfectly round hole.

 

It should be noted that the Music Maker cartridge (made in very small quantities by Mike White in the mid-1980s) would require a cassette case modification just like the one for Bally BASIC with the built-in audio interface.

I do not yet have a complete collection. I'm still looking for several carts, especially the 3rd party stuff.

 

Yes, a single drill bit would be best. Placement is the key! :)
