"Dragonfly" my version of the Atari 7800 SD cartridge

I want my fully decked out DF cart in 7800 purple please?!

 

I have the printer set up for the Fiberlogy filament, so I suggest this color:

And at the moment it's not red, but burgundy, my photos lightened the color too much.

If you really want a choice, I can order and print purple. But be warned, I do not intend to have a whole range of colors to choose from, the complete housing takes about 6.5 hours of printer work ;) 
And I advise against black, it's ugly.

Actually now that I think about it...maybe a dayglo or neon like color would be best. That way the whole backside of the cart would light up when my 7800 is powered on with the UV LED I've got in it? Hmm.... 

 

BTW @rj1307 that purple looks pretty darn close to the darker purple shade that the 7800 stuff would have been branded with. Nice!

RJ I have two of your Agacarts and love them.  I am excited for this on the 7800 and will be in for one as well.  Thanks for making this, it's a great piece of engineering.

Why on Earth do folks cling to the request to play 2600 games on these 7800 SD projects? Get a HARMONY or an UNO for that. Let these projects purely support the complicated 7800 as it is, and maybe incorporate a couple of things the XM would've tackled. That's enough complexity right there.

It would just be convenient and easier on the connector to leave a single cart plugged in at all times.

I have only one AgaCart and admire the clever way it is built mechanically plus the great packaging!

Agreed. That’s how I have my systems. Convenient, keeps dust out of the cart slot, and I also believe it would save wear and tear on the connectors since you’re not swapping.

File this under "stuff that probably doesn't really make a difference", but leaving a cart in all the time also means the console cart connector is subject to creep. IMO leaving in vs changing carts is probably a wash, unless you're doing dozens of cart changes a day, every day.

I would love one of these carts, fully loaded if possible.    If color choice is avaliable I'll take orange....   really this thing looks amazing and I take it whatever form it comes in

The works on the final version are almost finished, this week the first cartridge will be sent to a colleague gambler172 for testing.


After the recent changes, Dragonfly supports 1MB files, I also added volume controls for Pokey/Covox and YM2151. USB file loading works.

 

Below is running a 1MB demo - Relax:

Let's wait for the results of Walter's tests, I only have two consoles and he has a dozen in all systems :)

Yeah baby, Yeah!  You realize each cart will now need to contain the 'Relax' demo.😉

When this is ready, I'm interested in one.

 

Also:  still trying to bash out a double POKEY Metroid demo.

 

Oh, I had no clue anyone had even considered programming Metroid on the 7800.

I want my Dragonfly to allow my 7800 to have a startup sound that plays Alan Parsons 'Sirius'. Yeah...

I was thinking more HAL 9000

How about just the "I am completely operational..." part but autotuned to the 'Have you played Atari today?'
