NEW TOOL: SPECTRUM ROM INJECTOR (FOON)
Strags, author of the Spectrum emulator released a rom injector for the emulator a few days ago, I just "forgot" to add it, but here it is. Follow is taken from the site "This is still early code. Don't be surprised if certain ROMs break the emulator completely! There is no throttling yet. Some games will play slower than 100%, some will play much faster. Most games that I've tested are playable, though!".

On a side note, the following news was added to the site today: "Audio is nearly working... I just have some bizarre timing issues to iron out, and then I'll put up another release. Going to be busy with "real" work today, but will hopefully have an hour or two to spend on the emulator this evening.

ACCESSORY REVIEW: PSX JOYPAD CONVERTER
I received this odd game accessory about a week ago, and here's a small page about it. Basicly this is a converter for the GameCube which will allow you to use a PSX joypad instead of the normal GCN controller. It's is produced by Success Company (UFO), who was nice enough to send me a sample. The product is released under the Blaze label, which should be well known all over the World.

MODDING YOUR JAPANESE GAMECUBE
Ever since the release of the Japanese GameCube was released, speculations have aunted the internet wether if would be possible to modify it to be able to play US games. Lots of attempts have been made and one finally paied off. All that has to be done is attach a switch to two points (R6) right next to eachother on the board and you'll have a multicube :)

Please note though that the operation is quite hard as the soldering points are incredibly small, and you may destroy them if you aren't careful, but still fast, when soldering the wires onto the two points. It can be done and a good advice is to put some hot glue on the spot after the soldering is done.

Click here to download a guide in PDF format, created by "Dr. Eggman", on how to modify your Japanese GameCube into a MultiCube ;)

BEST GBA 256MBIT FLASH CART PRICE
UFO, aka Success Company, today announced their price for the soon to be released 256mbit GBA flash cartridge, which will be US$147 compared to LikSang's US$179, a difference of no less than US$32. UFO's price for the GB bride is also a bit lower, US$38 compared to US$49 at LikSang. Both companies has the same upgrade plan though, US$75 to upgrade a 128mbit cartridge to 256mbit. Think twice before you order, and maybe even wait a few more days before you place your order, cause who knows what will happen. And they say competition is bad? ;)

MORE INFORMATION REGARDING 256MBIT CARTRIDGE
The day after 64scener posted the first pictures of the new GBA 256mbit cartridge and GBC adaptor, LikSang updated their site with some interesting news. It seems that this new cartridge has just about everything one could wish for, such as EEPROM support, finally, as well as the minimum bank size has been reduced to 32kbyte, which means you can store a lot of homebrewn games and demos on the 256mbit cartrridge, I guess this also means that the next menu file (v3) will be a real scroll menu. Not only is the cartridge also finally down to actual GBA cart size, but it also uses 50% less power than the old carts.

The price has been set to $179 at LikSang, upgrade option available - check their site for details. The new cartridge will also be available from the UFO company soon, who are known for having the best prices, so you might want to wait a bit before ordering.

ACTION REPLAY GBX RELEASED
Datel today announced that the Gameboy Advance cheat device, the Action Replay GBX, has been released, with a delay of a little over a month. Once inserted, you can plug any game into Action Replay GBX and start cheating! Action Replay GBX comes preloaded with tons of codes for all your favourite Game Boy Advance games, but can also be connected to a PC for uploading new codes via a USB cable and PC software included. We have just ordered a copy and will bring you a review as soon as we receive the package, or shortly after atleast :)

FIRST PICTURES OF GBA 256MBIT FLASH CART
We have received the first pictures of the new Flash Advance 256mbit cartridge which proves that the Flash cartridge now is actual GBA cartridge size, very nice indeed! And as written back in August, and we got laughed at quite a bit, we are able to present you with a picture of the GBC adaptor for the GBA flash cartridge, which means you can use your GBA flash cartridge to host GBC/GB games.

On a side note we can present you with a picture of an upcomming Taiwanese gameboy copier, combined GBA/GBC copier. The release date and price of both Flash 256mbit cartridge and this new copier is unknown at this time.

Who is laughing now? ;)
