Yeah, I mean before I removed the link. Hope it stays unsold.

A new version is in the pipe, but will be ready when it's ready  ;D
Please count me as one of interested people in new batch of C4CPC.

Hey Gerald, I'm interested, too, so put me on the list please  ::)

Just a reminder that the C4CPC is not for Plus/GX4000 only, it's a great device for playing in the CPC too with the cartridge adapter. The converted game library playable in all platforms is extensive.

Hmm, I think you're referring to Play2CPC. Where to buy this from?
M'enfin!

Hello, either Plus2CPC or Play2PC. I have some stock for Plus2CPC 4.3 (final version) for 25 + shipping, in either edge or MX4 connector. PM me if you are interested.

The difference is that Play2CPC adds extra sound channels and 512K volatile ROM for future purposes, but there is not stock of it now and will take some time to make a batch.

@abalore: I'm interested in Plus2CPC v4. Shipping would be to Poland.

@gerald, I'm interested, too. Put me on the list please. Thanks :)

Made a video showing the C4CPC + Plus2CPC working together:

Eventually it became a real C4CPC = Cartridge for CPC  :) :) :) :) :)

Offtopic: It would be of great interest for programmers to release the hardware documentation of the Plus2CPC and the C4CPC in great detail - just to mention it  ;) :)

The Plus2CPC doesn't require any special programming.

If maps the cartridge as follows:

- slot 0 to Lower ROM / Upper &80 (OS)
- slot 1 to Upper 0 / Upper &81 (BASIC)
- slot 3 to Upper 7 / Upper &83 (AMSDOS)

all other slots to &80 + number

That's basic Plus cartridge behaviour. It doesn't fully decode RMR2 to set other exotic mappings as the Play2CPC does. That's only required for it to serve as full external replacement for the internal Plus cartridge port, but as far as I know no software uses it but maybe the Burning Rubber + BASIC cartridge.

Programming of a cartridge game is just enable/disable lower and upper ROM when needed, and change slot with OUT &DF,n

If we have a plus2cpc and a pity, does that allow alcon to work with full sound?

But fortunately you can add a PlayCity, or a CPCOPN3 board (my next development to make public), which adds 15 new sounds channels to the CPC: 3 AY, 6 FM, 6 drum kit

By the way, I already have a game done that takes advantage of the FM music! More news soon

I like the sound of the drum kit, but I am yet to hear an FM sound card that sounds better than AY

Taste is a very personal thing. Here you can hear the FM sound in the CPC speaker!

Do those fm sound card use a midi compatible syntax or something else?

It plays VGM files

VGM files can have FM, AY or both simultaneously. Also drum kit tracks.
