Guide: Build your own Sega Game Gear Flash Cartridge

Custom-Sega-Game-Gear-Flash-CartridgeShould you fancy a challenge in the electrical department or already hold a range of soldering skills, you might want to read through this guide. A retro gamer has posted up a step by step tutorial to building your own Sega Game Gear flash cartridge.

For those without the necessary skills (such as ourselves) might want to consider the already available to buy a Sega Game Gear flash cartridge from Tototek's online shop.

Tototek's cartridge comes with flashing software and all the necessary parts needed to get a collection of ROMs onto the cart, perfect for the majority of gamers. But be warned, it requires the out-dated and fabled parallel port on a PC to write data onto the cartridge.

Should you want to attempt to build your own, Gerry O'Brian of Digital Circuitry has posted his guide to building the Sega Game Gear flash cartridge on his website, along with a video series hosted on Youtube detailing the entire process. 

We are sitting in hope that this sparks off more interest in Sega Game Gear development, eventually fulfilling our desire for a USB Sega Game Gear Flash Cart. Fingers crossed!
