Atari 7800 SD Cart (Concerto?)

Recommended Posts

This may have been discussed somewhere else, but I couldn't find anything recent. Is there an Atari 7800 SD cart still being developed?  I think I heard that the Concerto (Harmony 2) was being developed but got stalled and is now sort of in limbo.  I haven't paid attention to 7800 news in a long time, so maybe I missed something?  Surely there's got to be something in the works other than used Cuttle Cart II's.

@SainT is our only hope for seeing this.  I have his Lynx card and am on the waiting list for his Jaguar cart.

Shall we place bets on if the 7800 gets a multicart before the XM ever ships?

There was the Mateos flash cart, but the creator has disappeared.

Yeah...I tried to order a 2nd cart from him and never got a response.  Oh well.

IIRC @SainT was interested to make a 7800SD Cart...

It may just take a Saint to get this done.

You know, it could also take someone who is an absolute wizard when it comes to CPUs as well.

I believe CPU has something up his sleeve... It isn't like it hasn't been hinted at during the summer...

I wish there were fewer "inside jokes" about this subject and more just "I'm building this thing, it's not exactly an SD cart but it functions like this..." 

 

not really sure why everything needs to be all secret squirrel. 

 

Just tell us what it is, what it does, and when it might possibly be available.

Easier to not spill the beans or specs on projects that don't come to fruition, or are produced in such limited quantities that only wind up in the hands of the chosen, very select few. ;)

Mostly this, I’m pretty sure.

Why?  Would you post a half written book, so someone else can run with your story?

 

Besides, I never claimed I am making something for the masses. ;)  If it works out, the way I want, maybe.  I am still sitting on $5K of inventory, so there is that.

I guess my point was: why even mention it if you don't really want to talk about it? Hinting about it, and making inside jokes makes it seem like there is only a special club of people who are allowed to know - which is kinda shitty for everyone not on the inside.
