On my website, within the next 1 - 2 months. As I am in the process of a relaunch of my website, there will be no new info anymore on the old site. The new site will be online within the month of August.

The EPROMs are being burnt these days, then the first batch will be soldered. The release for Eurocon (and right thereafter for mail order) is secured Smiley

Where do you get the blank EPROMs and PCBs?  Also, did you have to find 100 videopac games to rip the plastic casings from?  I can imagine that would be expensive.

It's very easy to get extra videopac cases in Europe, I had 30 copies of number 4 at one time and there are several others I just kept getting in every batch. I can't see there ever being a market for those and I've sent a whole box load for reuse to a forum member recently.

When you collect Videopac games you start and everything is new, so you have very few cases. When you have 400+ carts you end up buying a whole collection of someone just for one cartridge, then you start to get hundreds of cases!!!! That's how you get millions of empty shells etc.

That's right, I think I have about 400 cases in the cellar. And sometimes while I'm cleaning up the cellar I find another bag with 30 or so in it. Jeez... did I have these also?   Shocked Grin And yes... #4 is very much represented hahaha I think it is quite rare to find a collection without #4. Also my collection of empty VP+ cases is growing. Keep those homebrews comming! Wink

That's why I don't buy whole collections just for one cartridge.
My collection is pretty large, but I only have a few spare carts.

Yes, it's like George, Andy and Janzl say, it's pretty easy and cheap to get hundreds of Videopac carts. Usually you have to pay far under 1 Euro for each cart.

Thanks for all of the replies.  Wow, that makes sense though.  I see many of the same games in lots.  I just end up keeping them becuase my collection isn't nearly as large as most here, but I could see them having a potential use for a home brew unit.  I can imagine all Football carts being very useful for this very purpose! lol

Perhaps we should have a system where people donate cart cases / pcb's to Homebrewers and in turn they get a reduction in the cost of the game?
