what cartridge doner is suitable
« on: February 05, 2013, 07:44 PM »
hi i have arkanoid 2 (black cart with taito logo embossed) it has 2 screws, i opened it easily, now looking at the board inside it has 3 holes (centre hole and 2 holes either side) guessing my everdrive N8 wont be able to fit inside, so my question is what doner carts are suitable for it?

Fits perfectly in shell like this:


It was Adventure Island. There is a lot of various shell types, probably the only way is open and check

Will an everdrive N8 + PCB of a Famicom to NES converter fit ok inside an NES cartridge?  What's the height and width of the Everdrive?  I've got the converter in my Super Mario Bros. cart just fine.

I always break a couple of tabs and just gently use a little glue to hold it back together.  I was surprised that just breed for the famicom actually uses screws.
