    I'm placing this in Rare and Obscure as I can find only one page on Google pertaining to it.

    Sometime in the late 90's I remember seeing a Gameshark for the PC @ a local OfficeMax, I found a shot the box I remember here http://ps2hackers.com/wiki/GameShark_(Windows_PC) (the long box). In the back of the box was a window you could see the card through. Does anyone happen to have any additional pics and or information. If i remember right there were pci and isa variants.

    Those are the software only ones, I'm looking for info on the hardware based one. Talking to one of my friends, they had one back in the day. Sadly he sold/got rid of it. He remembers the card being around 8 inches and being pci. His was a black circuit board. He said it could save a ram dump to it then reload at will very similar to a save state in emulators.

    I know which one your talking about comp usa had a ton of them back in the day. I was reading some article that those ones could screw up your comp if you didn't use it right.

    I still have the windows 95/98 version, but it was just a small unit designed to plug in via the parrallel port and not the pci card version.

    Oh and it's branded "action replay" here in the UK.

    The "for computers" section has been removed, in case anyone cares, the latest revision that still has it is here.

    Hey, I didn't know there was a Win9x version... All I ever came across was an article about the DOS/ISA version.

    Shame current AR/GS can't be used to actually find codes any more...
