    Hi all,

    I keep finding these when searching for old BS-X carts:
    https://www.ebay.co.uk/sch/m.html?_...TR12.TRC2.A0.H0.Xbs-x.TRS0&_nkw=bs-x&_sacat=0

    I refuse to pay that kind of money for these, and am wondering if they are just flashed with a GB cart flasher or something similar (wasn't the BS-X based on the SuperGB?)

    I know these games can be played directly using an everdrive, but as a collector, I'd love to have F-Zero 2 on the real hardware.

    Has anyone had any success with writing to these?

    Wow, that's awesome! I can't imagine there's many people that would take this on as a commission - I personally would not know where to start! Know of anyone @TriMesh?

    OK, I did a bit more digging, and it looks like @sanni 's cart reader/flasher can handle BS-X memory cards.

    Fantastic - Thanks so much @TriMesh. - This looks great! Does @sanni sell these pre-made? I've love to get hold of one.
