New specs list 4MB of RAM, this appears to bode well for Super System Card 3.0 (192KB RAM + 256KB ROM for people with a Turbo Grafx 16 + Turbo CD) and Arcade Card (2MB RAM + 256KB ROM) support.

Krikzz did not tackle the simulation of either Sys Card 3 or Arcade Card so I won't hold my breath if I were you.
At the same time it does not mean it is not possible, at this time we just don't know if Krikzz would even try.

What I can say is that even with TED v1 on a Duo-R it is possible to load SysRom (1, 2 and 3) and it seems they behave correctly so it is more a matter to replicate the mappers behavior wrt the RAM pagination/location/hot-spots.

When it is all said and done the only "required" one is the Arcade Card Pro (it works fine on a Duo-R but not sure if it detects and disables the overlapping RAM), it would be nice if the Arcade Card Pro mapper (if ever it gets created) would allow the choice of either Sys Card 3.0 Jap or US so we can access the save game menu in English. I do it all the time on my Duo-R (I mean loading Sys Card 3 US on TED v1).

We can only hope, if Krikzz pulls this one it will make the over-expensive market of the Arcade Cards collapse, at 50/60US$ for an AC Duo is ridiculous!!!

It's not possible to run CD based games through the HU card slot.

Some person can load iso from FPGA board.

So if krikzz , build a card which accept native CD support, the Everdrive V3 will can load ISO files, and it needs embedded RAM for WAV playback and more importantly ADPCM.
Maybe krikzz ll have to use an FPGA. for the switch, cause i don't know if altera has the power to make this.

From a FPGA connected to the expansion port at the back of the unit, not through the HU card slot.  What you're asking for is not possible.

The guy who made the GDEmu is working on a optical drive replacement for the PC-Engine.  You should watch for that project.
