I just got my adapter and none of my famicom games, nor my n8 fit! The pcb is hitting the cart shells.

What do I do??

the adapter can be used as generic cart adapter with modification. You 1st need to cut the wings off with a rotary cutting tool. Then find a donor shell and cut the top off such that the fc slot is exposed. The pcb may fit loose without the screw mounts. If so, glue the connector to one side of the shell. It is also wize to glue a piece of ribbon to the shell for easy removal. Secure the two bottom scews to the shell and the adapter is complete.

Thanks StarDust4Ever,
I tried using a donor NES cart and just sticking my famicom n8 and the adaptor in. It doesn't fit perfectly because there is a gray plastic stump protruding from the inside of the front cart shell piece. Is it ok to clip that?
