Why not make a single version of the multicart that runs on both types of VIC by autodetecting?
We may reconsider our choice but at the moment we have about 10 blocks free so we cannot put both version of all NTSC/PAL carts, the alternative is to use ram fix from menu routine but we need to complicate the logic of the software/hardware, more, a typical vic user has NTSC or PAL machine and last but not least since the MEGA-CART, "definitive final project name" contain some games never published as cart but important in the Vic scene, i wish to use this space to add other games if 6502dude agree, i may launch a denial member's poll:
Which tape/disk game do you want to see on MEGA-CART ?

With current hardware & software upgrades being finalized, my best estimate is August time frame for firming up numbers for expression of interest so we can get a firm number on cost for circuit board production (volume will affect discount factor).
Several person hundred hours how now been invested in this version of Mega-Cart hardware and software + image testing to ensure compatibility and provide a very user friendly user interface with numerous options.
While some may be anxious, I would prefer to have a fully tested quality product, versus something that is rushed into production at the last minute.
