Leonard Smith Posted August 12, 2022 Share Posted August 12, 2022 I seem to have weird issues with a handful of carts when booting them up on my various 7800 systems. In particular, one copy of Ballblazer will not start up (get these glitchy color bars when powering up) if I insert the game cart. If I remove the PCB from the cart housing and stick just the bare PCB into the system, all is well. Boots up on first try. Other games sometimes require a few insertions to start up...Karateka and Super Huey most notably. And then 90% of my library works fine on the first try. It seems like the tolerances are super sensitive on the 7800. In the case of the Ballblazer cart, it seems that even a millimeter can make a difference between booting or not booting. The carts seem to act the same way on my various 7800 systems, so I don't believe it's a matter of carts or cart slots being dirty (I clean both regularly).
