Korean MSX user Overrich has produced a batch of great looking MSX cartridge cases, Konami sized, available in three different colors: Mega Black, Shark White and a limited edition in the semi-transparent Clear Beast Black. From the looks of it, the cartridges have great build quality and - not unimportant for hardware developers - opening them is as simple as can be with 2 small screws on the back.

They look great! If I'm not mistaken, there's quite a demand for cartridges like these in Europe. I hope it's possible to order them from Korea for a friendly price...

Beautiful,
You may assign that game this utility the following examples:
White = V9990 ?
Black = (msx1/msx2/msx2+) ?
transparent = MsxTR ?
I have no other comments.

I hope will not be a limited batch and we can buy them normally... we need this kind of stuff very often.

I think it is, but trying to Google Translate one of those Naver blogs is nigh impossible. At least, I gave up! Tongue

If anyone want to buy more than 100 of cases for now, just email me
overrich@naver.com

Allready exploring to start a Multibuy. If I add shipping, import costs + Tax, then it will be € 5,- /cartridge.

A little interest check, who will buy a case (or multiple) from me if I start a multibuy ?
(see for your self how much the shipping will be from Holland to you : Post Rates )

Looks somewhat familiar, does it has the same dimensions as the ones from Sunrise ?

Thats because, they look like cartridges Tongue

As far as I can see, they have screws and not the "break to open clamps" that Sunrise uses.
To be honest, I like these way more then the Sunrise Cartridges, and I guess, that a cartridge from Korea is faster deliverd then a cartridge from Sunrise Evil

Sunrise Cartridge

You are right that these are carts as well butt besides that they share some similarities :P

Break to open clamps are not that great but I normally cut those a bit to make it possible to more easily close and re-open the case again without breaking something !
About delivery time, I'm not sure about that, Rob always delivered them within a week so no complaining there, don't know if packages from Korea will be that fast or cheap with all those greedy customs/douane guys.
But indeed it's looking promising, hope they can deliver a lot of those for a nice price :)

Those are very cool cartridge cases! Maybe they should sell them on eBay.

It would be very nice for homebrew projects if someone could clone the ASCII MSX-Serial 232 cartridge case. This is probably the best cartridge considering the external_size/internal_space and cost relationship.
