I'm debating doing a v2 of my programmer. It won't use a VB motherboard connector this time. I've located pins that will work together with a 3D printed housing to provide the connector. Thinking about a 2.7" OLED screen, cap touch buttons, and the new connector idea. USB input and SD card like the other programmer. But mainly on screen controls, instead of a GUI or RealTerm like before. Probably in a rectangular black Onyx 3D printed case.

The benefits of this v2 are:
1. No longer requires a VB motherboard for the donor connector
2. Larger 2.7" OLED screen. 128x64 graphics screen.
3. Cap touch buttons. Up/Dwn/Select
4. On-screen controls using cap touch buttons
5. It's built from all new parts

This is again mainly for developers and people who want individual carts for games instead of a flash cart like HyperFlash32. The v2 programmers will program my 16Mbit and 32Mbit carts, as well as dump existing carts.

Let me know what you think.

Here's my concept. Instead of a VB mini that the cart plugs into, how about the cart plugs into a programmer that looks like a large cart. Well, a giant HyperFlash32 cart, anyway.

I think I'll de-scope from the concept above with the idea of making it cheaper. TBD. HyperFlash32 boards should be here end of the week so I may have to table this for now. However, some test PCBs with my pins to create my own VB motherboard connector are already in progress.

I do have parts for 4 more of the existing programmer, if anyone else is interested.

Here's the V2 programmer shield concept. A cheaper VB programmer option.

Basically I could provide fully assembled units with 3D printed case, or just this shield where people would then need an Arduino atmega2560, display, firmware hex file, some standoffs, cap touch buttons, and then 3D print their own housings.

The shield only path is probably the cheapest no touch option path. Not sure how many people would be interested in the kit only option.

The 3D housing will be very important as it will contain the VB motherboard connector support. If this isn't correct, you're likely to damage the pins on the board and be SOL.

I have a small PCB being built right now to test the VB motherboard connector at the top. If that works out then I'll proceed with this larger shield board.
