Hardware News   Hardware News : New C64 cartridge cases, special prices for clockport-hardware
   posted by Wiesel on 29-May-2006 23:01:39 (1788 reads)
New C64 cartridge cases
Our cartridge cases for Retro Replay, MMC64 and other standard C64 cartridges enjoy great popularity, therefore we have made a new production run with a few improvements. The cases that we delivered previously were made out of the fairly soft plastic polystyrene. To further improve the quality and stability of dimensions under extreme climatic conditions, we decided to use the harder plastic polycarbonate. In addition to the known colours black, blue-transparent and clear-transparent, the new colours red-transparent and solid blue are now available. Even though polycarbonate is much more expensive than polystyrene, we did not raise the sales price. We even took away the price difference for the different colours, so each case is now 4,- EUR incl. 16% VAT (plus shipment cost, please inquire by eMail). There's only two quantity scales: The single price for purchases of up to 99 units, and 15% discount for orders of 100 units or more. Colours can be mixed in order to reach the quantity scale.
The cases are closed with only one opening for the cartridge connector. If a cartridge with buttons or a pass-through slot shall be used, the holes/openings must be cut into the case. This applies to both the Retro Replay and the MMC64.





If you order the bundle with Retro Replay and RR-Net, you can now choose from these case colours. Wordwide shipment is already included in the bundle price of 100,- EUR for the three items!

Special prices for clockport-hardware
Many products for the Amiga are only made for the clockport of the A1200 for economy reasons. Individual Computers has been shipping Zorro cards with an additional expansion port for many years. This expansion port is compatible with the A1200 clockport, but at the same time has a much better performance. Especially for Zorro-systems (so-called "bigbox-Amigas"), we're now offering a bundle with our ISDN-card ISDN-Surfer, which also features a clockport. For the "smaller" Amigas A500 and A1000 we have the clockport adapter for the CPU-socket. Please bear in mind that both the Delfina and the Subway USB-card by E3B require a 68020 or higher processor. All bundles include 16% VAT and worldwide/international shipping!

ISDN Surfer with Subway USB card and Poseidon V3: 100,- EUR
ISDN Surfer with Delfina soundcard: 150,- EUR
A500 clockport adapter with Subway USB card and Poseidon V3: 100,- EUR
A500 clockport adapter with Delfina soundcard: 150,- EUR

Please use our contact form for ordering.

@Jens

If you are able to produce new C64 transparent cartridge cases, could you also produce new transparent A1200 cases?
I'm just kidding. I know building a mold that size would cost thousands of Euro's

@CD32freak:

The size of the mold is one thing, and moving parts for snap-in connections like the A1200 has adds even more to the cost. I was really lucky to buy an existing mold for the C64 cartridge cases for less than 5000,- EUR - normally I would have paid about 20.000,- EUR for such a mold that can take really high pressure (I can use any kind of plastic) with moving parts (snap-in, no srew holding the thing together) and even the possibility to exchange the gravure panel.

This is the fairly low price of a small German company. I have reliable information that the molds of the new Competition Pro USB joystick were more than 100.000,- US$, and they are using screws to hold the parts together (granted, it's a lot of different parts).

My guess for an A1200-compatible mold would be in the 60.000,- EUR area. Anyone up for an investment ?

Cool, looking forward to take my C64/MMC64 with me on my next Sahara-expedition.
