The PC used to program the flashcart is RIP

Sad news, today I went to my old PC to program the cartridge in order to record a new release and discovered that it wouldn’t boot up anymore.

It was an old Acer laptop which still had the parallel port with the EPP protocol needed for the Tototek cart programmer. I think it’s time to move on from the good old Tototek cart and get a more modern solution like a Everdrive so I won’t have to mess around with old hardware like parallel ports anymore, unless I find a cheap (10€ max) old laptop to replace the one that has died on me.

I’ll keep you updated!
