I am offering a set of special cartridges for sale. These are multi-mapper cartridges designed by our group (RBSC) for commercial purposes - for shops or game distributors. The cartridges contain an Altera chip as well as a 512kb FlashROM chip. The following mappers are supported:

  • Konami 4
  • Konami 5 SCC
  • ASCII 8
  • ASCII 16

The cartridge also supports the "planar" mode in which a 64kb image will be fully loaded into the slot (for example Painter). The 48kb games that don't require any mapper can also be used in this mode (for example Hans, Zombie Outbreak, etc.).

In Konami 5 there's no SCC sound output from the cartridge - it only runs the game. This cartridge can't be used for games that require SRAM or other additional feature of the cartridge to work, but it runs pretty much everything else including Metal Gear 2.

The cartridge is easily reprogrammable from MSX-DOS with the FL16 utility. There is write protection available to avoid accidental game erasure. The cartridge fits into a Korean case, but I provide no such cases for sale. Below you can find the picture from the official document that each buyer will get from me.

I am asking for 33 euros for each cartridge and 7 euros for worldwide shipment. The PayPal fee should be paid by the buyer if he decides to use the "pay for goods and services" payment option. Please contact me if you are interested.

The price, if you buy more than one cartridge board, is negotiable.

We have just finished the 2 megabyte version of the multimapper cartridge. I can assemble a few cartridges for private users as well as for the game magazines. The price is 33 euro per cartridge, but this one has a 4 times larger flash chip!
