I'm working on cart shells but it will take some more time. I have someone to cnc those from plastic, no injection molding.
Here's my specsheet for the shell, still work-in-progress, still to be completed.

I am loving the look at of this, i'll really start looking at a packaging standard for the small run of fluff enhanced carts.

I did a sketchup of the original cartridge a while ago. Fell free to use it if it helps : Existing games => Cartridges

Well, I need to sort the "when" first.
My biggest issue is manufacturing.
Soldering 0.5mm pitch IC is ok for few pieces, not for a production.

How about talking to Lotharek. Ask him how much he'd do them for. He does quality work. I think you'll sell quite a few.

Bryce...... Off to find his wallet

Time to throw away my ugly ZIF-modded cartridge... I'm in for one too  ;)

Yes please, this would be the only cartridge we would ever need.

Me too!

Wait, what are we talking about?

...oh, awesome. Yes, one, please!

I want 2.

One for Deepfb and one for me.

It seems we reached the 20 pieces bar.
The next step for me are :
   - Confirm with selected people that the cartridge is working fine and reliably (HW  and SW)
   - Set the selling price
   - Get formal orders
   - Start a batch of PCB, assemble them and hopfully give them to santa for distribution  ;)

Thanks for your support

I'd love to get one too. also please let me ask on circuit-board.de because there was a recent group-order of gx4000's and i'm pretty sure there's some interest in carts there. I'm willing to take on the handling for german customers and also the assembly and testing if you like. thanks for your work on this!

Is the group-order already closed or is there a chance to get a GX4000? If yes, I would be interested in the conditions. So far I didn't want to spend a lot of money only for P&P from England...
