whats the flash cart like world look like for the lynx?
Flat red mini FPGA board. A bit like a gameboy cart - no casing at the mo. USB interface to COM converter as per usual.
@Sage: How does the program talk to the linx though the COM port? Is this via a modded link cable?
its a cable which uses a MAX232 to convert a RS232 to the comlynx voltage level.
On the lynx side you need a cartridge, which contains a comlynx loader. that could be:
BLL loader cart, SIMIS, Championship rally, Alpine Games, Lynx Reloaded, (...)
Karris Flashcart, Bernds Flashcart
Karris flashcart comes with a max232 on the cartridge, for the others you need to built the cable on your own. i do not think anyone sells them anymore. The componetns cost only a few €, but soldering things together is boring and cost time.
