I would wait for the new 2600 core to be released it is in development and was partially used for the new 7800 core. The current 2600 core is flawed and a better base is needed to build off of. Just wondering would you want to just load starpath games or would you want to actually hook up a Tape or CD player to the ADC add-on board?

Rysha mentioned adding support would be simple, so should appear in the new 2600/7800 core at some point.

ADC support would be a neat addition once added, if it is viable, for some systems like the Commodores it isn't.

Personally I'd be happy to see both types of support. Feel like wherever ADC support is viable it's worth including as a way for people who want to use their original "media" to run games and programs, and Supercharger games don't take long to load anyway.

I would love to know where the development is on this. I still own my old Supercharger, many tapes, and a New Brain CD. I'd love to play these games again and relive this wonderful memory from my youth!

I believe this is all baked into the new 7800 core, check it out and play around with the new core. It is pretty solid, and worked with pretty much everything I threw a it. I hope you have the ADC input board.
