FLASH cartridge

Post by darkfader » August 15th, 2004, 06:12

I just broke my flashcartridge ;P but at least it works a bit. I want to make new version with PSD835G2V. How much $$$ are ppl willing to spend on a cartridge? $50 ?
I am afraid I cannot mold plastic but it does fit inside an official cartridge.

Flashing could be done inside PM through some simple serial connection to parallel port with some buffer chip. Might need external power though.
The chip has secondary flash where the I/O and flashing code can be put. Maybe even infrared support ;)
One flash sector could be locked down and allow upgrades in the others. If I also add multi-game support, there will be no need to upgrade the PLD part of the chip.

An external programmer could be used too, but for that you would need to destroy a whole PM since the connectors cannot be aquired elsewhere.

That sounds very nice...the 'other' cart requires a programmer, which means destroying a pokemini for the port or building an own pm port. PokeSlap and Tharo were thinking of that 2nd option, but it might be hard to get satisfying results. Also, the other cart won't fit into the original plastic housing, but might be a bit cheaper (not much hehe). I think $50 is a very reasonable price for a flashcart of that size, you dont seem to charge anything for the soldering (or does it come as a kit ;P)...

I'm willing to spend more than that. Looks like a nice dev platform.

I'd be interested in flash cart(s), and if they're able to fit inside an official cart, they'd be even more appealing :)
