Game Gear SMS Plugin Question
« on: 17/Nov/2018 11:42:23 AM »
I am working on soldering the game gear cartridge slot (the type sold from eBay) to the SMS plugin and was wondering how the slot should be positioned on the plugin board. If the cartridge slot is flush with the board (see picture linked below) the pins extend pretty far in the back and there is not very much space between the slot and the pins from the SMS slot.

Is that the right position for the slot? Do those pins then need to get shortened after the slot is soldered? Or should the slot not be flush to the board so that the pins don't stick out? Any pictures from other folks who have done the mod would be appreciated!
