AgaCart - New SD Multicart for Atari Lynx
« on: April 24, 2019, 00:30:14 AM »
Rafał Jankowski has announced he will be releasing a new multicart for the Atari Lynx called the AgaCart.  The AgaCart will use an SD cart for storing ROM files. You choose the games using buttons on the back of the cartridge.  The Cart supports 256k and 512k games in .lyx format, 128k files need to be converted to 256k. The maximum number of files is 199.


Rafał Jankowski has released already a 48-in-1 Lynx multicart in the past, so he has experience with this type of project and this is essentially an updated version of his previous multicart. 


For those interested, the AgaCart can already be ordered by contacting Rafał at the Polish Atari Forums.  He plans to start a thread for taking orders on Atari Age as well.  If you're curious about the technical details, check out the thread at the Polish Atari Forum.

Really good, may have to get this so I can do a comparison review with RetroHQ's cart.

There are not even 199 games for Lynx, or are there? I have 85.

I don't believe so, even if you count the homebrews.

There will be demos, homebrew mini  games too that you can add so I guess it’s more about file allocation.

Anyway, is it not always better to have too much rather than not enough ;)

There was a lynx multicart that came out last spring which I bought that I think may have the edge over this as it gives you the game file names on screen to scroll down rather than pushing a button, but this still looks like a solid alternative.

I think he's referring to the RetroHQ one, which has an on screen menu for the games.
