I made two Starfox 2 carts back in early 2006 8). Fun game. Hopefully you don`t mind me posting these here Turbo.

PLEASE NOTE that the eprom in this pic is BACKWARDS! I finished it, took a pic, then slapped myself since I had to spend another 15 mins flipping it around :lol:

I'd like to have one of these but I can only pay $20 sum for it Not including shipping. I've been looking and I can't find any cheap ones. There all 35-40 bucks.

Yeah, when I saw this thread I knew you finally got everything sorted out :D

I have another cart hack half-way made, that I think is pretty cool. Its a Clock Tower cart. BUT, Instead of doing the whole wire-mess thing, I put everything on a separate piece of standard radioshack project pcb. Kinda like a little daughter-board. Its just soldered on to the original cart pcb using some header pins. By trimming out some of the plastic in the top of the cart, everything fits fine. I had this idea because I wanted one that was 100% solid and shockproof, like a normal cart.
I might snap some pics when I go back to the states in a few weeks. Hell, maybe i'll finally finish the damn thing :o

I could supply the Stunt Race FX cart if that makes it any cheaper :P my Stunt Race FX board has a faster crystal on it FYI, so It would probably help the Frame rate.

No label is really necessary, if I want a label I will probably make it myself.

I could also supply the floppy cable for the EEPROM.
