They should IMHO provide a digital download. (cost or free, doesn't matter).

did someone order 350 of them or are there really close to 400 individual buyers?  nice to know the size of active hardware base.


The numbers I have:


4Mhz : 200 units
Individual Buyers directly from me : 203 units.
Small batch from other Spanish forum : 10 units.


At the end of the day, units go to individual buyers (since 4mhz is sold out already). It may be the case that some users have two units. Very few users (2 or 3) have 3 units.

Since it's an "open source" (or whatever you call it...) project it may be difficult to count. M4 quantities should be more valid...


Many times people contact me when building their own boards, either for permission (you don't need it btw), or heads-up (thanks), or asking technical or logistics questions.


But you're right, I can only track those I know of. If someone builds 100 tomorrow and decides not to tell me, I would miss the count for those units.

...
It's just a regular Dandanator but with the usb header and the buttons removed, so it's

At the software side, it has a custom selector and doesn't look is SNA based... Sorry but there is not download until someone at 4Mhz makes a decision or someone crack opens it's "Repoker pack" and reads the eeprom...


It’s a standard CPC dandanator with no buttons and no USB circuitry. Not only the usb header, but the usb chip, xtal and related capacitors.


Loader is custom made by 4mhz and myself and it’s not based on the sna format.
4mhz will post the digital download for free as they always do with their games. I don’t know any estimated date though.

Hey Dan,
today I wanted to test the ROM Generator with the Mojon Twins Romset. With drag&drop the rom into the ROM Generator and also with importing the ROMset
I have the German message ""Fehler beim Datei-Import" - Unerwarteter Dateiinhalt für die benötigte Funktion" :-)
If you can remember there was the same problem with the ZX Dandantor in 2018. :-)
Is there something broken or am I doing something wrong?

Hi, the Mojon Twins romset is not a standard dandanator CPC romset, so it cannot be imported into the ROMset generator by dragging it. If you want to resend it to your CPC Dandanator, please use the "Send alterative file" from the preferences menu, Loader tab.

Dandare, could you please put me down on the waiting list for one?


Thanks! :)

All pending units sent. I built an extra one, so if anyone is interested, it's already available.
