A small gallery  of the finished Play2CPC
The design goal was to make a small device that takes no space behind the computer and don't block the screen view
And also don't have bright colors, LEDs or stickers, to not distract the player attention during the intense gameplay sessions :D

How about a 2nd version or with switch and no audio circuitry for those already with playcity. Seems a pity for a playcity owner to remove it and lose 3 audio channels in the process.

That would be the Plus2CPC - which the Play2CPC is based on.

What's the price difference between the 2 mx4 vertical versions?

Hello, the Play2CPC will come in only one fashion: edge connector with 3D printed enclosure. The enclosure is mandatory to prevent connecting the cartridge backwards or bad aligned. And a MX4 connector has no point for the intended usage. After long debate about these two subjects we made these decisions.

About the price, it will be bigger than Plus2CPC because it has many more components, but the good news is that the Alcon2020 physical edition will include a voucher to redeem part of the price.

How about the Centronics computers? The Plus, Schneider CPC and the reimported (US) Indescomp CPC6128 models won't be able to use it with edge connector.

For those I have a very compact and solid adapter that will share soon. All the developments are having delays because of the chinese new year.

Yes. It is the size of a one-to-one connector! :)

Yes! but with 45 electronic parts inside, including 6 integrated circuits!

if there are only 3 sound channels on this card, but 6 on the playcity, and 3 inside the CPC that run at a different speed than the playcity... how will the 3 sound channels + internal CPC 3 channels map to that of the 6 channels on playcity + CPC 3 channels?

The Play2CPC use the default configuration of most of the PlayCity programs, like ALCON 2020.
Few programs using 9ch AY will be not replayed, because it was not on the PlayCity base spec.
