Hello. I'm new to the 5200 and multi carts so please excuse my ignorance.

I would like to know if this USB cart comes with the games already in the cartridge. The reason I ask is because I own a Mac computer and won't be able to use the software.

The cartridge does come blank. You would need temporary access to a Windows PC to load up your rom images.

After loading you dont need the PC unless you want to change the games.

Thanks, classics.

Any word on when a Mac version might be available?

I'm going to produce a command line tool that will be open source, based on libusb, which is available for OSX.

When is another matter, all I can say is I hope to have time for it soon. :D

I will not be writing a full blown GUI application for either Linux or OSX, but such an interface could be built around the command line tool or its code if anyone had enough interest.

I'm also MAC all the way. My G5 is 3 now so it's PPC (not Intel) and I'm going to try Virtual PC 7 - it does have full USB support and I have Win XP Pro on it. I also have a couple of PC's (collecting dust in the closet) I could hook up but I believe VPC would work. I'm ordering mine this weekend and will let you know the outcome. I hope it works as I feel so vile and dirty hooking up a PC ;)
