Title: New CBM Vic20 Memory Expansion/Penultimate Cartridge 4
Post by: Vadergb on June 23, 2016, 23:49:13 PM
I got one of these yesterday, its pretty much a really fancy Vic20 ram expansion that's also got cartridge images built in and linked functionality with the SD2IEC SD flash reader. The item was only officially released on Saturday and once I saw it on Twitter I paid for it immediately. Ive added the link to the designer of the cartridge below. Ive just got a HD PVR2 which i'm hoping to upload some Vic 20 game-play videos to YouTube. The Vic20 is seen as an under powered machine but some of the games are amazing.

As I was one of the first to buy this version the designer ask what cart images I wanted on the final rom - amazing service TBH.

It's cool to see all these new bits of hardware coming out for these old machines.
