Hi everyone!

Long time lurker, short time poster :-) Question for anyone here who's made / released games before on carts: Where do you folks get cartridges from? Cannibalizing old carts or has anyone considered making repros?

Cheers,

Cannibalizing older carts. The cost to make repros would be too much for the somewhat limited O2 / VP fanbase (just how it is - if anyone knows otherwise, I'm willing to listen and help finance if possible).

As for finding old carts, I buy off e(vil)Bay when the price is right (which is usually isn't anymore). I buy some off of Facebook, and most from a few local retro game stores, grabbing as many when I can. Most I pay for carts at this time is $5.

"Cannibalizing" older carts and new carts (old stock).

Thanks everyone!

Another question: Does anyone know if there's a detailed laser scan of the cartridge case? If not, I'm going to see if I can get somebody to make / model one..

Not that I am aware of. If someone could make repros that would be great, but the cost is high.
