Description

An ESE-RAM is a MegaSRAM DIY cartridge made by replacing the ROM from a MegaROM cartridge with an SRAM chip. These DIY cartridges spread in Japan after K.Tsujikawa released the manufacturing method and the group ESE Artists' Factory organized meetings dedicated to the manufacturing of your own MegaSRAM in the 90s. These meetings were called "似非セミナー" (ESE-Seminar).

The MegaSCSI is based on the ESE-RAM.

The site here lists the components used in MegaROMs to choose an easy one to transform.

A MegaSRAM is very convenient because in addition to being able to launch many MegaROMs, it allows to create an SRAM-disk.

Currently, suitable cartridges to make a MegaSRAM are increasingly rare because of price and it is more interesting to preserve the originals.
