The only reason it's reduced capacity was because I thought it might need FAT vs FAT32 formatting.
C4CPC should work with anything formatted FAT12/FAT16/FAT32, but not extFAT (it will not recognize the card at all)

If it helps I can take a screenshot of the error message.
Yes please!

Reformatted to FAT32 and copied over the base files and it seems to be working again! Thanks :)

Hello Gerald,


I've missed my chance twice on getting one back in 2017 and 2019 due to personal issues.

Well, do you have any plans of building new carts this year?
I'm really interested of getting two of these wonderful carts for my 6128+ and GX4000.

Hi,
Does anyone know how to use games that have data required to be loaded?
For example, in Rockstar Ate my Hampster, you load the game, then it asks you to play the data side of the tape, at this point nothing seems to work, does anyone know how to get past this using a C4CPC

I assume  you have convert it yourself.


convert another cracked version.

No cash only convert games that use firmware calls. Any game that access the fdd at low level don't work without  made  a new  loader for the cartridge.

Hi Guys

It had to happen, but I've taken the last order of C4CPC that I can provide.
The current availability of component does not allow me to make any forecast on when I'll be able to make a new batch.

I would have given you a like for all the work you did, if it wouldn't be sad in the same time.

Hence, let me ask you how much units of the great C4CPC cartridge did you actually produce?

More sooner or later, probably you need made a new redesign to use a  new fpga/cpld more new and aviable. Unfortunly  fpga/cpld models  aren't eternal in production :( .

I think that we can thank again gerald for the C4CPC and wait a design update, if required.

It's not a matter of new or old component, just that the supply chain has gone wild and some references won't be available before months (thanks to big corps piling up inventory and speculators willing to make some easy money).
