"MTX Plus+" Games ROM Card

 

Based on his original MAGROM design, an add-on ROM board for the MTX, Martin has designed a Games ROM (GROM) board for MTXPlus+.

Design & Build
Draft layout for Martin's GROM board.

The components are located close to the bus connector which would allow an ~1/3 size board to be constructed, it is probably more useful to build it on a full size board and leave the remaining space available for other expansions, e.g., a floppy drive controller.

   

 

Current Status

A MAGROM like games ROM card for MTXPlus+ has very limited value; whilst loading games into MTXPlus+ is not quite instantaneous as it is with MAGROM, the speed of loading from Compact Flash card and the larger range of games available for MTXPlus+ than with the MTX MAGROM board would suggest that there is little point in building a Games ROM card for MTXPlus+, so the Games ROM card is unlikely to see the light of day.
