I don't get you point. MegaFlashROM SCC cartridges are made with new (not used) componets (PCB, flash memory, DAC, SCC and cartridge case) I think EPROM technology is quite obsolete these days, and not very useful for testing and playing ROMs on a real MSX. Also, it is easier to read/write cartidges with your MSX than with an external hardware.
Anyway, it is nice to hear that all MegaFlashROM buyers are really happy with the device.

Not every MSX would have 64KB RAM. Some of them would use 16KB RAM (without Disk Drive) or even 8KB RAM! For cartridge games, the normal is 8KB RAM, the rest of the program would be on EPROM/BIOS ROM ...

EPROM chips could be used to make brand new cartridges, I don't think that their are useless ... Sure there is the price tag, but it is easier to get those things today. If there will be a market for 5000-50000 new games equipped with EPROM is another history.

Also the topic was asking specifically for EPROM carts for tests! The substitution method using old cartridge should work fine ...

The (old) newpost also mention about a basic cartridge for non megarom games.In the past there was several test boards around. For odd reasons none of them came equipped with a socket!

Does anyone sell a socketed MSX cartridge that would allow burning an eprom to test software on a real MSX?

Leonardo Padial does.

Humm ... yes, EPROM and probably FLASH memory.

I also mean he could just sell you a cartridge with a socket, so you burn the EPROM on your PC and test it on the real hardware. Just ask him.

Nice, some constructive posts!
It would be more a Printed Circuit Board. Well not everybody need a cartridge case, but the socket is welcome ...

Most old stuff (MSX is a classic vintage system!) had those boards with soldered EPROM chips.

You meant something like this ?


A slide show with more pictures.
I made some for my self but also to sell, they are 3 euro apiece without the components.
Feel free to email me.

Hi all,
I tried several times to do some like that for MSX,

i have Success in others Systems like SMS PC ENGINE MEGADRIVE,

but the diferents PCBs from MSX drive me crazy,

and i fail over and over again ,just i can do a little game like Zanac but never a multi card...,

so recently I decided to buy the MEGAFLASHROM SD,

roadfighter looking you Photos looks easy and clean,if you want have nightmares see my slaughter work Evil

PC ENGINE PROTO:

i was thinking do that for MSX is more easy "soldering work i mean..." but no way for me
<(Y______Y)>

Oké it may look a bit messy but it works does it not ? LOL!
Thats a lot of soldering and hot glue Tongue
Thanks for the compliment on my Eprom PCB i made some for my self to experiment with and have some left to sell.

hello roadfighter

What are the meaning of the straps on your board ?
How much do you sell them ?
