Regarding EDGB, what is the chance EDGB will support GBA games as well GB/GBC?
zero, totally different cart tech..

I hope the GB/GBC will have a built in menu system like DGBmax that will allow for different color pallets for Mono games...

Its something to do with the size of the ROMs, the coming soon Zippy the porcupine wont run on it in full.
4k is hard to work with

There is also regional differences, get the wrong one for your console and the on srceen menus become hard to read

yeah your right. the size of the rom appears to be the problem :( the harmony cart would still be an ideal purchase but i passed in case something better comes along. if not i will continue to emulate 2600 on my xbox for now. i do prefer gaming on real hardware though so if a 100% cart comes along i will certainly get it right away.

as for the news about the gb/gbc everdrive i am very pleased to hear this news and will purchase one soon as they are available :)

Harmony's compatibility is well over 99%.  It's practically impossible to make ANY flash cart be truly 100%, there will always be that one weird game that uses a programming trick no one used except for the one guy who made it, and he retired immediately after making it, now he herds goats in the Andes with no internet connection.  And has amnesia.  And his arms were cut off.

My point being, don't hold off on a Harmony (or any flash cart for that matter) because it only plays 2783 out of 2789 games.  Trust me, those last 6 aren't games you played as a kid anyway.  If you like playing on real hardware, get the cart and enjoy the real hardware.  Though by the same token, if you like/have no problem with emulation, continue that way.  I myself do both.

what i tend to do these days is use emulation just for the few games that are incompatible. maybe i will get an harmony cart... it's not like there are too expensive. i'm in two minds about it tbh. i would prefer a Atari 2600 everdrive and maybe we will see one in the future. i think krikzz would get those troublesome 4k games working somehow lol.

Shut up and leave Drakon

How about you find something more productive to do with your time?

About £40 for access to almost every 2600 game is good value
Yes even Double Dragon, also some 2600 carts sell for more than that.

I still buy carts for it when even i see one going cheap

The playone looks great.  I'm not watching the video with sound because people are sleeping.  Is it some sort of clone?

It's rather some kind of home-made 2-in-1 Jaguar+CD unit.
Really nice job, even if the painting could be better.
