I think leaving only pads availables for those who would adapt a rumble motor is the best solution.
i don't know how many games use this option (i can remember Perfect Dark in addition of Pokemon Pinball), but i don't think it worth the entire change of the actual PCB, ie whole project.

I also would like to at least have the rumble pads available. If there's a game that just uses rumble for indication (like stone of agony in OoT) you could always go the cheap route and add a LED there instead if you want.

I know Nushi Tsuri Adventure: Kaito no Bouken has rumble and it's been fantranslated to English. Here's a list of some more games: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rumble_Pak#Game_Boy_Color_games_with_built-in_rumble

I'm wicked excited for this to come out! not sure if its been asked or not, but It looks like the micro SD card wont need to have a slot cut in the cart shell, should all just fit inside.

As I wait for the board to go on sale, and then be purchased, shipped, in my mail mans bag for delivery, and then arrive in my hands, I've started making a label design for my cart, this is what I got thus far, I'll probably have a few more revisions coming as I tweak it more and more as I wait.

Keep up the great job!!! YOU ROCK KRIKZZ!!

The LED trick sounds very smart to me !

Oh gosh, I was hoping no-one would mention the rumble @_@

Is the battery just for the RTC?

It looks like I'm going to have to get a black GBC cart to empty out...looks like there were a couple Elmo and Olsen Twins games that the world would be happier without B)

Hehe I was gonna mention rumble but I thought RTC was more important at the moment.

Battery might be needed for keeping SRAM as well. There's no hardware-reset button on a Gameboy.

That's true, but doesn't the EDN8 say you don't have to reset to save except with FDS?

I always reset anyway, just to be extra safe (and out of habit)

Sorry if this has been answered somewhere, but I searched through this thread and couldn't find a solid answer. What storage memory format is this cart going to use? I saw some people mention MicroSD, but nothing really solid. Are people just assuming it'll be MicroSD because it's a small cart?

It's safe to bet on MicroSD because of the small size, plus an adapter to full-SD is easy to come by.

Hehe, if we need rumble for Pokémon Pinball, we should have a Gyroscope for that Kirby game as well xD

But, rumble paks usually required an extra battery, and with the Power consumption of the GBE being the biggest hurdle, I doubt such a thing would be feasable ^^

That kirby game actually uses an accelerometer.

Compared to accelerometer, RTC, etc., rumble is the easiest to implement.

From Wikipedia:

There were several games for Game Boy Color that supported rumble. Since the Game Boy Color hardware did not include native force feedback and had no extra slot for a separate peripheral, all games supporting this feature had it built into the game cartridge itself. These games that had this feature required an extra AAA battery (on top of the 2 AA batteries required to power to the Game Boy Color) that is inserted into the cartridge to power the vibrating motor. These games include:

10 Pin Bowling
3-D Ultra Pinball Thrillride
Chee-Chai Alien (ちっちゃいエイリアン)
Disney's The Little Mermaid II: Pinball Frenzy
Get Mushi Club: Minna no Konchu Daizukan (Get'虫倶楽部 みんなの昆虫大図鑑)
Hole in One Golf
Legend of the River King 2 / Kawa no Nushi Tsuri 4 (川のぬし釣り4)
Missile Command
NASCAR Challenge
Nushi Tsuri Adventure - Kite no Bouken (ぬし釣りアドベンチャー カイトの冒険)
Perfect Dark
Pokémon Pinball
Polaris SnoCross
Ready 2 Rumble Boxing
Star Wars Episode I: Racer
Super Black Bass: Real Fight
Super Real Fishing
Test Drive Off-Road 3
Tonka Raceway
Top Gear Pocket / Top Gear Rally
Vigilante 8
Zebco Fishing

Like the SED, it'll be just easier to go out and get the games you want to play that the EDGB possibly won't emulate, including rumble and, dare I say, RTC.
