@reprep: you're prettyr lucky with your Pokécard ! If one day you wish to sell it... or if you spot one somewhere ?
@dvd2vcd: there was some other project like thisone for exemple : http://www.jagware.org/index.php?s=b31546eb20f5f5946c2b776544d79f92&showtopic=841&st=0&p=13159&#entry13159

If i could say a few words about flashcards...
For me, they belong to a strange "world" or "community"... i can't find the exact word, with its rules and economy.
When a flashcard, for any system, pops up somewhere in the world or on the web, we never know how it will become.
I'll try to explain :

For exemple, Neo Myth card was one of the earlier N64 flashcard. A whole community was waiting for such a device. It was almost like Bigfoot, or Loch Ness monster... we had some clue for one in development but never released. I bought it as soon as it was available. 200$... such a amount, isn't it ? But at this time, it worth it. Obviously, now we have Everdrive64, a beautiful and useful hardware, Neo Myth appears odd and far too much complicated. And expensive.

Now, about Jaguar flashcard. Since you're always asking Krikzz for inventing this "fuck***-cool" device (i'm with you for this request ;), you should have heard about Skunkboard. I was too late to buy one, and now they ARE the Bigfoot of the flashcards. Most have seen, we have pics... but to get one is almost impossible.
And it's the same for Cuttle carts, Krokodile, etc...

So i bought devices like Tototek flashcards, or Lynx Flashcards, or Flashboy, or GB USB smart card. They don't have µSD slot, sometime they're somehow complicated to use, even to understand how to use (the Lynx flashcard for exemple).
But who can say how long they will last ? Or if there will be another device offering at least the same purpose ?
ANd they're still some flashcards that I want, like NeoGeo Pocket or Pokémon Mini. Not for playing, but just to see how it works, and enjoy the work of a genious-coder :)

And there are some other system without flashcards, like NeoGeo AES, or Microvision (there is a joke in this sentence, will you find it ?)
And some other deserve an optical drive replacement device, like Saturn or Playstation.
So many thing to invent. And so many to buy !

Here is the link to the thread:

Just like the Harmony cartridge, it's a tiny piece of harware.
Enjoy :)

Atari2600 was my first video game system in early 80s’.
So it still has a “special place” in my collection.
So I own an Harmony cartridge. It’s a really nice piece of hardware.
Yes, I didn’t spend much time playing with it… but I have it :) just as VecFlash, Lynx Flascard or Flashboy.

And there are some good people creating, developing such devices ; working night and day although they would never been know for that. Even for “boring systems”. They deserve some kind of recognition. And money.
Don't you think ?
