Flash Devices / Multi Device List
« on: August 16, 2009, 03:25:57 PM »
As it seems many of us are into Flash and Multi Devices I though I would start this topic to list all the multicarts currently available and where to get them, and info on new carts and discussion about them. I am sure I am missing a few so please post information on any which you know about.

Krokodile Cartridge- no longer available
The Krokodile Cartridge is a programmable game cartridge for the 2600 game console. The cartridge contains 512K of Flash ROM that can be programmed by connecting the cartridge to a Windows PC with a serial cable. Once connected to a PC, the Windows-based Krokodile Commander software is then used to download software into the Krokodile Cartridge. The cartridge also includes 32K of built-in RAM to support games that require additional onboard cartridge memory (such as Atari's SARA-chip games).

Atarimax Flash Cart
Atarimax Flash Cartridges are professionally produced, in-system reprogrammable flash-memory based cartridge for the Atari 8-bit computers.
While the hardware itself can be programmed with anything, it is also supported by an open-source multi-cart/disk-cart/banked-cart development system which is already robust enough to produce large multicarts/disk conversions without any programming by the user.
Its the intention of the initial 1Mb and 8Mb cartridge projects to provide a easy to use platform for homebrewing of inexpensive, legal multi-carts and other software, while being small enough to allow it to be completely and quickly re-programmed in the Atari itself, using only a standard floppy disk drive or SIO2PC software.

Both made by Steve Tucker at Atarimax, but the 8bitclassis one is pre-loaded and has no USB interface, really no point in buying that one.

How easy are these to fit and use on each machine? Are they menu based or command line based for using?

I chickened out as it required a soldering iron to tap it into the video display - same has to be done on the Amstrad (not looked at the other machines).

It uses an overlay on the screen and you control it via a separate joystick (9-pin).  Scroll through the disk images, select it and tell the device which drive (A or B) to insert the image into then reboot the machine.  The disk is now "inserted".  Usual commands apply on whichever machine you're installing it into to load the disk image.
