Anybody have a supercharger for the 2600?
« on: July 04, 2017, 09:27:30 pm »
Saw a Metal Jesus video about it today and it seems interesting.  I was wondering if anyone had one and if the homebrew scene was good for them.  I could see myself 3d printing a case for a cheap mp3 player loaded with all the games and mount it to the top of the unit.

That looks cool.

If you just want to play the games on the 2600 the Harmony Drive seems to support them. But the novelty of the device is definitely cool.

It doesn't make any sense to me that the harmony will play supercharger games considering the supercharger is essentially a ram expansion kit.  If the harmony includes extra ram, ect. then that might explain why it is so expensive..... myself I would rather have a basic cart for a more affordable price. 

I really want to try my hand at doing a XXX in 1 cart for the 2600.  There are pcbs for blank carts for under 10 bucks, some with DuPont header pins so then all one would need is an eeprom, a dip switch array and something to program it with (I think an Arduino would work).

While that would be cool, the Harmony Encore basically does all this already. I love mine.
