I did a search on eBay for a Cuttle Cart and there is one already up to
$122. Anyway its nice to see that the scene is very active. Maybe after I
get my feet wet I'll look into actually burning a EPROM..

I found this site that sells assembled PCB's with a socket for only $14.95.

Thanks for your help

> I would suggest that the development of your program should be tested in
an emulator. Get all the kinks out using the emulator before trying it on
the real console. It will save you time. It's quicker to compile your binary
and load it into an emulator than it is to burn an EPROM. The emulators are
pretty accurate. The one I use is Z26.

want to burn an EPROM or if the game is 2K or 4K you can load it up using a
modified SuperCharger (see Bob Colbert's site on how to modify it). I use a
Cuttle Cart to test on my 2600 but Chad is no longer producing these. There
are some other products like the CC on the horizon though. You might want to
keep an eye open for these.
