Hello everybody.
I got the VIDEOPAC uSD CART, and it's a super piece of hardware! Amazing.
But i tried the VIDEOPAC+ 59 Helicopter Rescue, and VIDEOPAC+ 60 trans american rally, without succes on a VIDEOPAC+ PAL (well, there is no NTSC version i think).
This games are working on the VIDEOPAC uSD CART ?
Maybe i've got incompatible roms with the hardware ?

I don't have a PAL system to use the cart on, but did you check your ROM's CRC against the gamelist.ini file?

[C4134DF8]
NAME=59+ Helicopter Rescue + (VP+ only - does not work on O2EM)
NOME=Helicopter Rescue + (VP+ somente - n�o funciona no O2EM)
YEAR=1983
MANUF=Philips Ltd.
VARIANT=Euro+
PAGGING=VP+

The CRC is in the brackets ("[]") and paging (misspelled: pagging) should already be VP+, but double check in your gamelist.ini file.  If you need to get the CRC of the ROM, you can run it in O2em and see it.

Hope this helps.
Does anyone read these signatures?  Let me know in your signature.

Well, i've got a G7400 (french version with output for RGB Scart).
But after some tries, its seems that 12k and 16k games dont work on my machine.
(2k to 8k are working fine).
I suspect a hardware problem ? The VIDEOPAC uSD CART seems ok.
So ? If it was a computer like the Zx Spectrum, i would suspect a ram problem.
But on a Videopac i don't know. There is the 6810 ram chip, and 3 2128 chips (not exactly ram..).
Best regards.

3k, 6k 12k games use a seldom used pin on the cartridge connecter to get that extra 1k. I forget off-hand which pin that is. This pin may be dirty.
FYI - This pin is not connected to the cart in the voice module, so it must be removed when using those games.

Hello. Are you making new batchs for this fantastic cart ?

Hi! I am very interested in the cartridge. Is there still a way to purchase one of these? I would be very happy, thank you in advance! Marco
