So there is a new batch of N64 adaptors coming soon? I want to buy a Retrode 2 in combo with it. Is there any precise date about when these will be available? Is there any way to preorder them to be sure I'll get one from this batch? I want to backup my whole games cartridges collection, this seems to be to perfect thing to do this job!

By the way, thanks Matthias for creating this awesome gadget, perfect thing for an old school maniac like myself! XD

Not yet; the only thing we have is the estimated date of Q2 2012.

If anyone needs just an N64 adaptor then I have one which, I think, still works. I'll test it.

I screwed up the GBA/GB cartridge slot soldering, it could probably be rescued by someone with the necessary skills.

I'm waiting for pre-made adaptors to land, so I have zero chance of messing them up. And I also specifically wanted the N64/GBA one for GBA games... making my botched one a little useless for me.

Out of curiosity, is "Q2 2012" for the N64/GBx adapters fiscal year (US - January 1, 2012 - March 31, 2012, or another country's) or April, May, June?

Western calendar. I don't see how taxes should be able to speed me up here. :)

Sounds good. No hurry, I'd much rather have a polished product instead of a rushed one.

No ColecoVision adapter on the horizon whatsoever. I am not in the possession of any Coleco hardware.

I am going to make a start on an Atari Lynx plug-in adapter soon, you can add that to the list if you like.

Nice! Good luck with that! I have a Lynx myself, though not many games sadly.

Will the GB adapter be plugged in the SNES slot? I'd like to butcher a Super Game Boy to fit the adapter in.

No, sorry. the adapter goes into the Sega slot. Besides, last time I checked, the SGB was too fat to fit into the SNES slot.

The PAL one fits fine for me, you just get the ROM for the SGB itself (as suspected).

I think he wanted to gut it, and put the Retrode GB adapter in.

Just wanted to add that the 32x while plugged into the retro gold genesis port will rip 32x games fine, ive had no problems with that.
