Magic Wild Card - Micro SD card FDS emulator

Post by deadbody » Wed Apr 06, 2016 4:16 pm

So I have been working on something sort of semi-secret...it is fdsemu without the USB and flash but with a Micro SD card!

I have sent a few out to have them tested "in the real world" and no complaints just complements! One tester said "truly plug and play, just copy the games to sd card and plug it in". That line pretty much sums it up. Please see the website for information and ordering.

Features:
  • . Supports Micro SD and Micro SDHC cards. Micro SDXC is compatible only if the card supports legacy MMC modes, use them at your own risk.
    . Full reading and writing support.
    . Features a menu on boot with alphabetized list of your disk images loaded into the root directory of the Micro SD card.
    . Supports fwNES (*.fds) and Game Doctor (*.A) disk images.
    . Firmware is user upgradable.
    . Disk side selection via a button. Each press cycles through the disk “sides” for the currently loaded disk.
    . Pretty LED activity indicator.

That's pretty awesome. You make these irresistible.

A couple of questions: 1) can it act as a RAM adaptor and dump disk images from a real FDS drive?

2) Now this new one definitely looks thin enough to fit into a small, flat envelope. Got any cheaper shipping options?

No, disk dumping/writing is not available on this model.

The shipping cost is the cheapest available online for an international package, but...

Tototek will be stocking them shortly, Tomy will handle all the international orders when he receives them...until then I will be shipping internationally.

Thanks,

James

Any idea when plastic shells will be available for this and/or FDSemu? :)

Picking up first print of a design for the magic wild card this morning. Working with a local 3d printer guy to have them produced, I just have to finalize the design.

Won't be long now...

Thanks,

James

Cases now available! Prices changed to reflect case cost. They cost me $5 each from a local nashville guy. I now exclusively go thru him for all my case needs...
