New DOS Carts developed

Post by Stig »

Hi all,

Zaxon has developed some new Dragon floppy disk controllers ! If you are unfamiliar with Zaxon, he is very well known in the Spectrum scene and has even developed an entire new spectrum from scratch !

A few people, including myself, managed to talk him in to making a controller for the Dragon and he has delivered. From concept to retail in under a month !

One of the nicest features that he has included is a 4 bank, selectable ROM, so you can have 4 different versions of DDOS (or others)

I have ordered mine already and though I would share.

Please note that I am not affiliated with Zaxon, so any questions should be directed to him directly

Another note is that his english is not great but it's understandable

Thanks for sharing. There have been some similar controllers from Lafumat and Jose Leandro, but I don't know if they are still available, so this is great news.

This has been an exciting week for Dragon fans :) Maybe some of this could go under the archive front page "What's New" header?

My pleasure ! I have one of Lafumats controllers which I bought a couple of years ago but he no longer seems to be making them.

This new one is most welcome and with the added feature of the selectable ddos roms, I am glad to give one a home.

I will report back with a review of the controller once I receive it

Now if someone with 3D CAD skills could design some cases to all these new nice cartridges, and put them up on Shapeways.......

In the maltedmedia CoCo group, there is a member with the name of John Strong that builds cases for the CoCo-SDC
Hopefully he could make this for us, but he will need the exact board measures (or better a real board) and there should be
a minimum number of orders, I think ...

Here's a cartridge John made me for my Coco-SDC. Fits perfectly in the Dragon!
