I am also interested in games.
Is anyone making homebrew cartridges or "reproduction" carts for prototypes or exceedingly limited releases?
@ajroach42 do you mean repros ofrare carts for mainstream consoles, or flash carts for obscure consoles? Because I got a cart with all the games for the VTech Socrates from this person: https://team-europe.blogspot.com/2019/01/vtech-socrates-yeno-professor-weiss.html
But that's probably nothing more than an interesting read for your shop
@68km Gonna be honest andrew, both of these things sound Wonderful.
@ajroach42 yeah the Socrates cart is suuuper cool! I also got a board that converted its RF output to composite, but I haven't spent the time to really play around with all of it.
If you have or want to procure any of the consoles he's worked on, I got the impression that he'd be happy to chat even if he doesn't have any carts left.
@ajroach42 If you do go with old consoles, RetroTink seems to be the hot new toy for composite to digital conversion. (they released a few newer models last year from the already-good Tink 2X)
OTOH I had read that the GBS-8200 has too much lag, but last night on a PS2 subreddit someone was lauding it as the best solution under $100, because other affordable solutions do bob de-interlacing. They didn't seem to think the latency was bad.
@ajroach42 and honestly if you just get like a flash cart for an SNES or something, I'm sure you could print up a pretty repro label (that is clearly labeled as such, of course)
@68km That's the route we'll go next year, but I want to see how others do it first.
