Atari 2600 adaptor
« on: 07/May/2020 12:56:04 AM »
Hi guys.
I made an adaptor from the infos available on the website.
My PCB is design to fit inside any SNES game shell.



Still need to make a part for holding the 2600 cart.
I'll test them and publish when everything is confirm working

Nice! By the way, the weird outline of the original design serves to unlock the plastic lid of those cartridges. You may need to reintroduce that for smooth insertion.

The goal is to 3Dprint the same slot as the original like similar to this https://hackaday.io/project/113217-atari2600-cartridge-reader.
This should help to hide the cut on the SNES cart shell.
The two holes on the PCB are here to hold it.

OK, that does of course make sense. Cheers M

I'll have to trim it a lot to make it fit in a SNES cart.
