I'm more happy than sorry to be frank. ;)
Lupin wrote: Not based on my design? You still use the same cpld and programming technique as i may assume by the photos. Any ideas on improvements on the flasher construction? Will you get cables made?
Actually there are lot of similarities - connector is the same, CPLD has same packaging and it's the same brand as yours, although it's a different part. In general we didn't try to copy your design but for those, there simply wasn't a better alternative available.

Flasher will be different but still not completely thought of, nor designed. It will include a cable naturally.
Lupin wrote: How large is the memory?
This was supposed to be a surprise but as you are the one asking, I'll answer - 2MB (16Mb). That way the full address space of the PM could be used.
Lupin wrote: Good job on cramping that bga flash into the design and turning it into a single side populated board. Was it hard (or expensive...) to find a manufacturer for the PCBs?
I also think it's beautiful, a work of art in my opinion. Full credit goes to my friend who designed it. Also it's a relatively conventional technology used for those so not too demanding to produce.
Lupin wrote: I know how much effort it is to turn such thing into production, either you know someone who will do you a favour and help you or you pay lots for proto pcbs, stencils and assembly. Wouldnt be a problem if you'd plan to produce higher quantities...
Again, he's got the right connections to produce those.
Lupin wrote: So yeah, good job! I'll want one :-)
Very glad to hear it and hope to be able to serve you soon (in the next months - August is a vacation time for the producers).

真棒贴纸。:D flashcard是不是被卖还,但坚持围绕。

此外,flashcard是不是技术上不允许在ebay上。Lupin试着卖一出现,但它已被删除,如果我没有记错。

Awesome sticker. :D The cart isn't being sold yet but stick around.

Also, flash carts aren't technically allowed on ebay. Lupin tried to sell one there before and it was removed, if I recall correctly.

Thank you. This is really a problem. If they can't sell it, I want to buy it in private.
Is that all right? :D
As you can see, I am an art designer, I want to try to make the game play on the machine.
No wonder I can't buy the Lupin ’s cart, which was a pity :(
I made a mock-up hope zoranc like ~ :D

谢谢,这确实是一个问题。如果他们不能公开卖,我希望私下的购买一张 flash cart。
如你所见,我是一个美术设计师,我想试着制作游戏在机器上玩。
难怪我买不到 Lupin 的卡带,这很遗憾。
我做了一个mock-up 希望 zoranc 喜欢 :D

You should follow this thread as information of the progress and ordering options will be posted here.

We are little behind with the development - August was vacation time for us, also for the production factory. However some initial test of the hardware are made and are running well, so I am very optimistic it will run fine rather soon. Now the PC client needs to be implemented for actual flashing.
