Multicart v1.0

After years spent thinking about building a single cartridge featuring all CreatiVision games and programs for use with our beloved console units, my friend Giovanni Ortu (author of the CvEmu2 emulator) and I finally decided to produce it for real.

While we were collecting ideas, we got so excited by the incredible hype and feedback we were receiving that we decided to build a few more copies for both us and our friends who wanted a copy too... Finally, we ended up setting up 100 numbered copies with a full deluxe package and the same look as the classic CreatiVision cartridges!

This production was very expensive and we also spent a lot of time and effort in making it: we had to design a steel mould and buy it from China, order loads of EPROMs and electronic components from the USA, PCB's from Italian retailers, and boxes/manuals/overlays from expensive print shops... in the end, we really spent much more than we had planned. But we had fun doing this, and we're sure you'll appreciate the effort and quality!

Multicart v1.0 is something we're very proud of. Lots of friends from all over the world contributed by providing their ideas, original software which we dumped and included in the cart, precious informations, suggestions, etc. So we feel we need to share this success with them. Thank you guys!
