Bloody hell I forgot about that one, the Dreamcast SD card thingys are not very useful (from what ive herd) but a full drive replacement would help no end.

Providing I can play ISos of games I own that is.

Just read the post, he aint making them to sell

nice to see dreamcast gettin some love, also 3do but would be better if it was more widely available tho shame really because of this it probably wont do well at all :( playstation is something im not interested in at the moment as i have a test debug ps2 anyway which covers both ps1 + 2 titles, im still waiting for a jaguar solution more than anything, the games are getting really more expensive and harder to find now, i have found loads of info about jaguar cart pcb layout etc the info is out there its not hard to find and i really cant believe it hasnt been done by krikzz yet, he obviously seems to be more sega and ninty focused.

Im always on the look out on ways to avoid having carts/disc laying about at my games nights.

as long as the things aren't bloody expensive, if the Dreamcast SD card thingy could be used as a save device id have one.

Got a massive memory card for PS2 (all arcade games saved on it, theres a lot)
if only there was one for PS1 that didnt have me messing about with buttons

This is a whole drive replacement and runs games perfectly.

Good god the DC replacement isn't dead in the water?  That's amazing, hadn't heard anything about it in years...

damn i want a one of these for the dc, the 3do a psio and the upcomming gb/gbc everdrive, this hobby is going to keep getting more and more expensive lol (but worth it).
 i still aint got the psvita i want with 64gb memory card. then there are others i want to get in time nintendo 3ds, ps4, xboxone and even the wii-u. it's gonna end up worthwhile me paying the bedroom tax for my spare room just to store all these systems lol.

There is already a nice Flashcart for the C64. The EasyFlash and EasyFlash 3 carts. You can bundle e.g. PRG files into 1 MB compilations and flash it. Multi-part games though has to be patched for the cartridge format. There are nice EF releases for Maniac Mansion, Zak McKracken, a Epyx Games collection, Pirates! etc. Also supported are the old 8/16 KB carts, Ultimax and Ocean Type 1 carts. Nearly no loading times, it's great :)

@Relikk

More products, more chances to get one

That point is justified when there are genuine improvements to be made on existing solutions. In this case, there simply aren't enough reasons to produce something that can actually improve or surpass the 1541 Ultimate.
agreed, a krikkz jaguar solution is a perfect example, it would deffo improve over the jagCF and skunkboard also krikkz products are available worldwide, you just cannot find/get a jag flashcart anywhere at the moment, krikkz can really dominate this hands down.

i dont know if ppl realise this but the skunkboard is open source including the PCB layout :)
