Retron 5 Adapter in Retrode?
« on: 17/Feb/2017 04:06:04 PM »
So apparently the Retron guys released an adapter for the Retron 5 that plugs into the Genesis slot and allows the playing of SMS and GG carts, and also SMS cards. I realize that we already have an SMS adapter, but might it be a relatively easy task to update the Retrode firmware to recognize this adapter and allow the reading of GG carts and SMS cards as well? Just a thought...

Thanks all.

We would need to see the PCB to check the traces, but it would make sense if it was wired the same as the Retrode SMS/GG adapter.

Who's going to buy one and open it up?

Even if it's not wired the same way, couldn't the firmware be updated to recognize the new wiring?
