Ok.  I got the problem SG-1000 carts dumping with the Mark III plugin.  I created a forceSystem setting "sg" for these SG carts.  These carts need a specific configuration to read out properly.  I still need to decide whether to implement forceSize or simply dump 0x10000 (65536) bytes when using the SG setting.

I've merged the code into the current BETA v0.26 firmware.   I'll be doing some testing before I send it out to the test group.

EDIT:  Implemented the forceSize setting for the "sg" forceSystem.  forceSize uses KB size.  Looking at the No-Intro SG-1000 set, valid sizes are 8/16/24/32/40/48 KB.  Defaults to 64KB.

Is anyone ever going to consider making a few GG plugins and selling them at a profit for the less technical of us out there?

Realize this isn't a perfect solution for you, but the dragonbox.de SMS plugins (https://www.dragonbox.de/en/137-retrode2-sms-plugin-cart-reader.html) do still contain the gamegear cart slot holes. So you could get that, buy the gamegear connector from ebay that skaman linked and then make one yourself, or pay someone online to do it for you.

Thanks for sharing the idea.

I probably sound like a newbie, but I just finished installing the latest Retrode 2 firmware, and it has not solved the problem I'm having with getting Zaxxon 3D from the Sega Master System to load the ROM file. All I get is NoName.ngp

But I see you have a firmware update specifically for the Master System plugin. Can anyone explain to me or send me the link of how to install it?

Thank you.
