    I was wondering if you ever would plan on making an EverDrive for the WonderSwan (Color). There's only one WonderSwan flash cart out right now and it was made years ago, is extremely rare, uses archaic hardware and costs quite a bit if you track one down. I'm sure there are many people out there that would love to have one, especially some Japanese people. I'm sure people here would want one too, if so, post in this thread!

    My first thought was "A wonderswan adapter would be awesome!" Then I remembered how much I hate playing on those dark screens maybe if I had a backlit SwanCrystal.

    If you mean Vectrex, there's already a USB flash cart for that I think.

    These are rare systems so probably those carts would sell poor.

    I'm still waiting for PC Engine. Since tototek sells many carts building everdrive for this system would affordable.

    It may be possible for krizz to go through and figure out about how much it would cost to produce them. Do a preorder and just do one run. I imagine it would cost more but if there were enough people interested it may work. Maybe have one of the resellers manage the preorders to make it more manageble. (just thinking out loud here)

    Ah, that's unfortunate. Like Teancum said, it may be worth looking into a limited run, but I understand if you don't want to do that. Thanks for the response and I appreciate all the work you've put into the EverDrive line so far!

    It would be very expensive to do something like this. So expensive no one would probably want to buy the cart.

    Thanks for you response Stoneagegamer. If theres not enough demand to do a normal run and it would be way to expensive to do a limited run then I guess we're stuck for now. Oh well we're still getting excellent devices right now and who knows someone may take up the challenge in the future.

    I would love a wonderswan cart, but yea no dice. The ones that were made back in the day, are rare and costly.

    Maybe eventually someone will be able to make a community flash cart. Then we won't have to worry about cost as much if we are assembling it our selves.
    For example this might be a good start.
