Not to mention all the plugging and unplugging over time could probably weaken the system's cart contacts and allow dirt to get in there.

Reading this reminds me of how I used to do the exact same method but it was the Gameboy cartridge to get SGB boarders to work on non SGB boarder games as well as taking full use of the pallet options the games would use.

I never got dirt in there or weakened the contacts so that would be nice if the SGB SD2SNES Pro attempt could switch between them freely though I don't think its possible as the cart is locked in.

Well, that's up to you. SAG might be a bit pissed, but there's nothing they can do about it. You're well within your rights to send it back for a refund and wait for the Pro.

SAG is based in the USA, they might have stricter customer protection than what Europeans might expect from a retailer.

I don't really care too much about an SGB implementation, though; that's what my SGB and ED GB X3 is for.

Yeah but you can't play Game Boy Color games with that setup.
True, but everyone is talking about SGB.  I don't think we're going to have a case where we get GBC support on SNES.

I think when it comes out we should start using the term "Only for GBC" support or those Japanese carts that have a red splat indicating the game cannot be played on a regular GB while the green one indicates they are playable. Because saying the SGB cannot play GBC games makes the issue even more confusion especially without knowing if the carts were clear or black.

I did make this a while ago to clear up my confusion - https://imgur.com/a/8hfi1Ps

As 'ikari_01' said in his interview with 'SmokeMonster': the bus bandwidth is just enough for the SGB picture. So there would be some experimental trickery needed for streaming the color picture of a FPGA GBC to the SNES.

Yeah, there are several dual-mode Game Boy Color games, like Dragon Warrior I & II.  For US packaging, GB-only games are usually the gray carts, dual-mode carts are black, and GBC-only are clear with the plastic bumped out instead of in at the end of the cart.

That's true as I also had a few which were grey, black and clear the others were odd shaped ones and hard to keep up so I listed these and would be interesting if they work on the Pro - https://imgur.com/a/0YfWiia

True, but I've never known SAG to be hard-asses about anything. I'd say they'd understand if you shot them an e-mail explaining the situation about the recent announcement. Their 30-day returns policy seems to suggest that it'd be fine, anyway.

I'm not sure why anyone would want the SD2SNES Pro to able to play as a SGB. The requests here have been for A) save states (which I can understand a wanting for) and B) SGB support. The SGB2 coupled with a GB X7 is a far superior solution. For one it won't be emulated or simulated and two, and IMO the best reason, No linking of game boy games. I can see someone linking two sgb2 and two GB Everdrives, but with a sd2snes wouldn't that be impossible? and negating what the Game Boy in general is all about? (This is obviously just an opinion, I know some people like solo GB games but the fact that the SD2SNES Pro wont have linked capability kind of makes a possible future implantation sort of "meh")

The biggest fault of the original SGB, besides having its timing off, was the lack of a link port.

The USA has way worse consumer protection laws than Europe. Way, way worse.

I can't recall a single time in my life ever linking two Gameboys together except maybe when it first came out in 1989 to play Tetris with my sister

Is the sd2snes pro pcb the same size as the model we have now?  I want to keep my same game cart case.

Even with the steep price tags of the SD2SNES, I believe I'm gonna double dip with this one.
However, I will probably wait until there is some concrete exclusive reasons to own it over the original, like SGB support.

I got my SD2SNES on day one so I know there has already been several revisions so I've been wanting to upgrade but really couldn't justify it when I wasn't really having any issues.
