Could it be possible to have an adapter that would allow to use regular games on the Xpander then, like the Famicom to NES adapters? Or simply make the slot bigger for both types of carts, if you choose the top loading slot? (unless you also want to have more pins on the carts). 2) Improved video is the goal of that expansion, no? IMO, what do you think would have been feasible in say, 1981/82, that would not have blow the budget? Maybe check the specs of the planned "real" Intellivison II? (I recall it had a sort of Mode 7 built in?) That would be maybe a bit more over the top, but not too ridiculously high powered to have a sort cross between the original Intellivision and the never released INTVII. (OMG, I'm suggesting you a 32X for the Intelli.) Just an afterthough, about improved video, would it be feasible to have a video output on the Xpander? Just saying. That might be a good selling point for some people. But getting the video data back from the cart port might be impossible for technical reasons.
