Update: 22 Sept 2021 : Hi All. What a crazy last 18 months it has been around the world. I hope you and your friends and family are all safe. Sorry to those of you who have emailed and haven't received a reply over the past few months. Life has been busy. I do have your messages stacked up in my inbox.
I have ordered parts to make more Megacarts. So if you're still interested then check out the buy page to register your interest and you will receive a reply eventually. Just be aware these things are hand assembled and each one takes about 3 hours on average by the time I manage parts, reply to emails, and actually package and send them. I have to fit that around family life, so it may take a while :)
Update: 30 May 2019 :Try out the SC-3000 / SG-1000 Megacart yourself in the MAME emulator. We are still building a few of these for genuine enthusiasts but it may take a while. And if you just want to play in the emulator, that's cool too.
Update: 17 May 2018 : The Multicart Project is still alive and kicking. The brand new SC-3000 Survivors MEGACART is now available. It has all the tape games you know and love, but has double the capacity of the original Multicart for ROM storage and it now also works on the Sega SG-1000 / II / Mark III
Remember this is a hobby project, so it may take a couple of weeks to assemble your cart. Check out the buy page if you want to order one.
Try SC-3000 Survivors MEGACART for yourself in the MAME emulator and help the SC-3000 live on forever.
The SC-3000 Survivors MEGACART is available - twice the storage, twice the fun :)
Neat little 80s D&D RPG style game. This one required a more advanced remastering technique.
This is Demo #1 from the Sega SP-400 Plotter Printer user manual. It draws a pie chart, colours in the segments, and then draws a legend (again with colours).
After many years I have finally acquired a Sega SP-400 Plotter Printer. I'm like a kid in a candy shop :)
Enjoy this video of the unboxing and printer self test. When I get time I will add some printer demos to the multicart.
Two new releases for the tape restoration project today - The House and Help by Michael Howard.
Sorry about the delay in releases - life is busy :)
We've always had a long term plan to clean up and release the SC-3000 tape software into the wild. We've finally started with Vortex Blaster and The Secret of Bastow Manor.
The new run of SC-3000 Multicart PCBs is here, and we have some very cool new labels for the cart cases.
We are very excited to announce that Revival Studios is now accepting orders for Astro Dodge, a new cartridge game for the Sega SC-3000 / SG-1000.
To cut a long story short, we can now make our own awesome SC-3000 Survivors Cartridge cases, and all Multicarts ship with a case! Check out how we did it.
The Multicarts all ship with a couple of labels. But here is a PDF label sheet if you want to print your own.
The User Manual is now available. It includes common stuff like a Quick Start Guide and Caring for your Cart as well as more detailed information on the Multicart Architecture. Check it out.
We shipped out the first two production multicarts on March 2. Thunderbirds are go!
We've just found two classic titles that haven't been seen in 25 years. Check out the latest video showing the Deadly Jewel of Antark and Satellite Salvage.
We're making good progress and it looks like we should hit that 1 March shipping date. Here are our recent achievements.
Good news - the new SC-3000 Multicart PCBs are here! We have some more tweaks to make to the cart software, but we will start shipping these on 1 March 2012.
Hi All. Just a quick note to let you know we've added a pile another 13 interesting items of Sega SC-3000 tape software to the cart.
Happy New Year Everyone! We're in the process of confirming the Multicart PCB order with Futurlec and we've added the Sega / Grandstand Music Cart Demo Cassette tunes to the Music Editor on the multicart.
SMSPower released a dump of Xevious for the Korean Gamboy / Master System clone. But since this runs in legacy mode I wanted to try it on the Sega SC-3000. The original ROM has a couple of errors that stop it working properly with the TMS9929A VDP, but I fixed those. Enjoy!
I added a couple of jumpers to the PCB design over the weekend, and I'm likely to start confirming orders and order the PCBs soon...
The SC-3000's text mode doesn't let us fit much on the Multicart Boot Menu. So I grabbed Mike Hadrup's awesome Print 64 routines from Sega Computer October 1987 and plugged them under the hood...
These pages are dedicated to designing and building home brew Multicarts for the Sega SC-3000. We have instructions on how to build your own 32-n-1 Multicart and we will periodically update with new ideas we are working on. This site is a work in progress, so let us know what you think.
Why? Three reasons:
Let me just get the disclaimer out of the way right at the start:
We take no responsibility for any damage caused to you, your property, your favourite cat, dog, pet bird, Uncle Bob, or Aunt May by the use or misuse of the information contained in the SC-3000 Survivors Multicart Project. We've done our best to come up with a project that is relatively safe and simple, but everything you do is at your own risk.
