Mega SD Cover [Clamshell case size]

30 Oct 2019, 21:47

Thought I'd post this here too if anyone on Discord didn't see it. I rebuilt and traced the cover using scans of the box and a front shot Todd posted (with a 4x enhance via Gigapixel AI) that's fitted for a standard MD sized case, though it would require the Virtua Racing case due to the cart size:

Nice work. What clamshell case are you using?

I assume you could buy Virtua Racing and swap out the carts/art, but it'd be a shame to split up a CIB set. Is there a new alternative?

Cheers. I'm using a Virtua Racing case, though my copy was an ex-rental with no manual I got cheap many years ago, was an easy donor case. Not sure of any alternatives unless that case had the same specifications as a standard Sega case.

Thanks for the speedy reply!

Virtua Racing carts had unique clamshell cases due to their large size. After posting here I reached out to stoneagegamer.com, a US-based partner of Terraonion, and they told me that they'll be offering clamshell cases for the MegaSD starting in a few weeks.

If anyone else knows of other sources, that'd be great. Thanks again!

Yeah, the size of the case was the same as any other, just a different cart size holder inside. That's good news. Until then, I could maybe reformat another to fit a Universal game case if that'd help, assuming it fits a Virtua Racing cart also.

EDIT: Never mind, it doesn't, damn. Remembered I had one I was using for my SD2SNES but no luck. :(

No worries, I can wait. I think the stoneagegamer will have artwork, but I may very well end up printing one of yours if it's different.

Thanks!
