After numerous delays and setbacks of all sorts, I've finally got 19 FULLY FUNCTIONAL MULTICARTS READY FOR SALE!!!

Here's the "Options List" for those that desire to fit it to their needs:


A) Chips soldered direct to board- the cheapest and simplest option for the vast majority of people for both cost and the fact that it can be fit into a cartridge casing very easily.... ;) (MOST sales WILL COME from this option I'm certain) $34.00

B)EPROM is "socketed." This option allows for the user to swap eprom with others that they desire to program allowing for an even higher usage of the cartridge than from what it was originally designed for. $36.00

C) ALL SOCKETED! I have NO IDEA WHY anyone might want the board TOTALLY socketed unless they desire to replace the parts in the future or maybe use the board for other applications, however in the event that you DO desire to have the WHOLE BOARD socketed, then THIS is your option! $38.00

D) Now this is the option that I know that a lot of people will be asking about as well---- DIRECT TO THE BOARD, BUT INSIDE A CARTRIDGE CASING WITH A LABEL!!! $40.00


Now please understand that these prices ARE INCLUDING THE SHIPPING to the LOWER 48 in the US, so don't feel exasperated at the cost thinking that you have to pay MORE for shipping because you don't! LOL


Please feel free to contact me at my "PRIVATE EMAIL" in response to this posting from interested parties as I WILL NOT be coming back in here to check the status of this message as I'm just TOO BUSY MAKING CARTRIDGES! :):):)


Thanks for being SO DARN patient with me everybody as it's been a long haul to victory....


I love you all and GOD BLESS!!!!

Charles,

What are the features of your multicart, how does it operate (menu?) and
what is on it as supplied?

Thanks.

Not applicable.

Charles has a peculiar approach to marketing products. As far as I can
make out from previous discussions it's the Fotios Jumbocart he is selling;
http://imageshack.us/photo/my-images/254/fbjumbocartprotoxb6 .jpg
that was never officially released. Menu driven choice of up to 127 8 or
16kb so programs on ROM. No idea what programs are on the ROM supplied
but I would have thought a program list and features was a more
important piece of information rather than a list of socket options for
the board but anyway...

Some discussion here

http://comp.sys.cbm.narkive.com/5PS4F571/fb-jumbocart


I'm pretty sure that is it, however others confused the matter by
suggesting it was the Fotios FB-512 which is an entirely different beast
as seen here (no menu, 8K ROM selection through hardware switch).
http://fotios.cbm8bit.com/fb512j.php

That is NOT what Charles is selling.

Also, Fotios no longer produces or sells any of his carts.

Someone else mentioned the Easyflash cartridge which seems to be a
popular option as far as programmable cartridges goes and doesn't cost
that much more.

HTH.

Charles, will you have some of these for sale at the July 27-28 Commodore Vegas Expo v9? It's been quite some time since the original prototype was shown at CommVEx years ago, but congratulations on finishing your project!
And thanks to Fotios for giving his blessing and helping you out.

Yes it IS "Menu Driven" via "F-Key" support. F1 (toggle back) F3 (toggle forward) F7 (Run)


This is "HOW" it operates, now the question of the day is "HOW MANY PROGRAMS" are on it? heheheheh I haven't checked that portion out just yet, but as soon as I get a chance at the beginning of the week I'll immediately let you know as the list is VERY EXTENSIVE. ;)



Thanks for asking and also for clarifying the misconceptions as earlier stated.



Have a great day my friend,

Charles

Well their ready NOW for ordering as I have a PILE of 'em sitting here in front of me, however ComVex is a NO GO for me this year as other things have come up that require my attention this summer (as I had mentioned to you previously in a "personal email,") so as such, I'll just have to "mail them out" to whoever orders one. Sad though as I DID want to go this year, but there's always NEXT YEAR!!!! YAY!!!!!!


Yes, absolutely, without the incredible mind and ability of Fotios this project never would have been possible!!! THANKS A TON FOTIOS!!!!!

Heh, there are other ways to have the Multicart presented/sold at CommVEx. But we can talk about that tomorrow.

Well due to the fact that I've been out of the community for the past TWO YEARS or so due to an assortment of "family, legal, and personal issues," I can honestly tell you that I HAVE NO IDEA what an "Easy Flash" even IS!

So as such, I couldn't tell you the "differences" other than the fact that this is a cartridge with MULTIPLE PROGRAMS BUILT INTO IT driven by a "Menu" via the F-Keys. Nothing is "programmable" on it in ANY WAY. JUST PROGRAMS! :):):)\

Thanks for asking and have a great Weekend!

Did you end up getting hold of Fotios in regards to identifying the chips?

I emailed him a few times in regards to helping you out, not that I got
a response but the emails didn't bounce either ;-)

Some of the games are Attack of the Mutant Camels, Centipede, and Frogger; some of the utilities are C64 Diagnostic and Magic Mon; some of the applications are Facemaker, Calc Result, and Graf64 -- all easily accessible through a F-key menu. For the full list of the 63 programs included and pictures of the cart and screenshots, go to

You can contact Charles at charlesgutman(at)gmail.com. Payment by postal money order or by Paypal. International orders by Paypal only. No credit cards through Paypal.

The Multicart 64 is based off of Fotios' FB-Jumbocart1, the prototype being last seen at the Commodore Vegas Expo in 2007. Fotios and Charles have worked on this to get it out to market.
