Are the writers compatible with Mac's? I'm really looking for the cheapest, most basic carts I can find, since they're just going out as gifts. But a cart writer would be nice, it would save a lot of time and hassle in the future.

I am not sure.. i think they may with the new software ubcon? It does work on windows and pc. Im in austin too, pm me and you can come check them out.

I'm still new to the Expansion Audio out mod, but it seems to be necessary when using a PowerPak. I can't test that mod because I don't have a PowerPak (yet), but if it was installed wrong, wouldn't it cause the NES to shut off when a cable is plugged into the jack? I connected pin 3 of the expansion port to the (+) pin of the audio jack, then grounded it to the silver border around the PCB. I only have a few NES games at the moment, but is there a way I could test the expansion audio without a PowerPak?

I just registered on NesDev, I'm sure I can find an answer there. Thanks for informing me on NesDev, Telerophon.

Did you end up finding an answer to this? I've been doing some reading, and it seems like a jack connected to pin 3 would actually be an input - not an output? Apparently the PowerPak audio output is on pin 9:

Damn. That's my bad, I didn't realize there was an input line. I didn't have a PowerPak to test it... PM me and we'll work this out.

Grey DMG added.

Price drop on the GreyBoy, added eBay link for Green/Red DMG.

Open to any reasonable offers for the GreyBoy.

ArduinoBoy kits available if anyone is interested.

$90 is an amazing price for that greyboy.

Someone take it!

Still $50? I might be. Where're you at? If that $50 includes shipping I'll probably be foolish enough to do it after this next paycheck tongue

I'm in Austin, TX and since everything is so small I could send it for free smile

What all does the arduinoboy kit include. And or could you post a pic of everything it includes thanks

At the moment I'm ordering more 2k resistors, pushbuttons (ones that can fit in a DMG), and 8dip sockets. They should arrive in the next couple of days, and I'll post a pic of everything together.

Alright cool

how many midi jacks does the arduinoboy kit come with?
