FC->NES adapter for EDN8 that will fit inside the console
« on: February 07, 2019, 11:13 AM »
Hi!

I'm a very happy owner of the EDN8. I play the games mainly on my AV Famicom, but I've recently acquired a PAL NES. Now I'm wondering if there are any Famicom to NES cart adapters that will fit, ie. I want to be able to use my EDN8 on NES and be able to push down the cartridge.

I'll be honest, I want to do this as cheaply as possible. All I want is to play some of the PAL exclusives (Noah's Ark, Smurfs, Asterix, etc.) - so the non-working sound expansion chips, problems with MMC3/5 (if I'm not mistaken, some of the adapters handle it quite badly) are of no issue to me. As long as most of the games work, I'll be happy.

Now... from what I see, the EDN8 is a little bit taller than a standard Famicom cart, and that can be a bit problematic.

Would this adapter be okay for my needs? It looks reasonably compact, but I'm not sure if I'll be able to push down the cartridge.

And yes, most of the PAL games work on the NTSC console (Asterix is one of the exceptions), but I want to be able to play them at the correct speed.

Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

I would also like to buy NES PAL in the near future ... to play Elite and some other games ... as a last resort - all Nes 72 pin adapters are supposed to be compatible .. another question is how to be with the "lock out" chip (Nes10) ...

I also want to note: I have av famicom and two gamepads from Nes pal (NES-004E) and these are very cool gamepads :)
I
. They are well compatible with AVFamicom

Yeah, I know about that one, but it's too expensive for something that I'm only gonna use rarely. Plus, it's definitely much bigger - I have serious doubts that it'll fit with the cartridge pushed down.

I think that there is no point in worrying.
The height of the FC is much smaller than the NES cartridge.
 You can also subtract the height of the adapter - after all, the famicom sinks or goes into the adapter.
I am sure Krikzz thought this solution. In the end: we solve problems as they come.

Well, if you have golden hands and you take care of things (and you are not afraid to take risks, yes, this is a risk) - you can remove the cover from FC. in any case, you will rarely do it!

I will hope that my advice does not hurt anyone.

also forgot to mention: on a NES more height (significantly), but also width! NES-72 pin, FC-60 pin

If you guys have golden hands and you take care of things properly, perhaps you are the one who can simply manage this complicated task!

yes, maybe you are right.
 no one wants to mistakenly damage such a valuable thing, so - if there is no certainty - it is better not to open the cartridge.

But in any case: I hope someone who has this kit (n8-fc + adapter) can give us answers ...
 for now The best decision to buy and check ...

That adapter or something similar should work, if it doesn't you can always return the product.
And so I go fast.
