DK XM and what to do about it


Recommended Posts

I purchased an XM and DK XM many years ago. Obviously, I have the DK XM Cart in hand, but no XM.


With Curt's tragic passing, I no longer expect the XM. I've been paying less attention to what's happened since his passing, so I was wondering what solutions might exist to play DK XM with full sound. Is there an "adapter" cart or "heir to XM" or something similar? Or, am I best off just finding DK PK once Hokey is out?

Or, just buy a Hokey equipped Concerto and get/buy the ROM?


Who knows? Maybe someday collectors will seek out original DK XM carts for their odd place in Atari collecting history.

Did you buy the DK XM cart directly from @tep392? If so, perhaps you could exchange PMs and figure out how to exchange/convert your cart to DK PK (with POKEY aboard the cart) or get a binary to play on a Concerto or Dragonfly cart (which have provisions for POKEY chips inside them).

Among the options, a pass-through cartridge is under development, I hope it will support DK XM.




If it supports POKEY at $0450, then DKXM will work with it.  I bought both Froggy and Beefdrop without POKEY, in anticipation of the XM being released.  They should work with this passthrough device also.


@Colceo , Anyone who has purchased a PK or XM version of Donkey Kong from me can have the ROM for free to run on their Concerto or Dragonfly cart.  Just PM me.
