Starfox 1 deluxe overclocked I used a pre-modded board I had laying around:

The game runs fine at 53 mhz.  I cleared route 1 no problem, will playtest the other two routes when I get time.

Next up are 2x deluxe overclocked starfox 2 carts.  I started with virgin donor carts for this project.  Maskroms desoldered with electrical tape keeping surrounding parts in place:

Wires cut, tinned and hand soldered:

After testing confirmed it's working some hot glue and heatgun to make it smooth and flush so the dip chip fits nicely inside the case and nothing breaks or shorts:

Wired the eprom socket back up, wired up overclocking lines and the crystal oscillator with a voltage divider:

This cart is running happily at 51 mhz.  Later I'll playtest the entire game and then remove the eprom socket and hard solder the chip in.

The cr2032 batteries I ordered at the beginning never showed so this project got delayed when I had to order more. I ordered a bunch of 50 mhz oscillators too, I don't want to push these commissions too fast and risk having them randomly freeze. Two out of three carts are 100% built, playtested, and ready.

Just one more to finish playtesting and this will be ready to ship.
