I am fairly new here but mainly signed up so I could lurk and post occasionally. Just wanted to say I think these Hucard Repros are awesome. The quality far surpasses that of the 3D printed Atlantean homebrew I bought last year (though that game is awesome).

I may be down for some custom 2-in-1 cards in the future, also a Magical Chase. Turbo games have gotten incredibly expensive recently and I've recently resorted to importing and playing through a Japan <-> NTSC adapter.

That said, there's a special place in Hades for people who would try to pass these off as originals on eBay (like the $1500 Magical Chase), so I'm thankful the clamshell cases do not match the original and every chip/card is imprinted with a reproduction logo on the back.

I hate reproductions for games in all aspects, but this is probably the exception, CLEARLY  a reproduction from anyone who is not a complete moron. And a good price for some games most of us will never own :)

Nice stuff!

Any chance of new system cards or arcade cards?

Not right now but we might look into this in the future.


Please let us know. I would love to have a US region arcade card. That way i wouldnt need to mess with the super system 3.0 card and it would work with all disk games. Very high on my hopes list.

I love your 2-in-1s; those look great!

Got a white Parasol Stars and black Neutopia I+II on the way. I still need a Bonk 3 however. Been trying to decide what to pair it with for the 2-in-1 deal. I already have Bonk 2 and Air Zonk, and the PC Engine Bomberman trilogy.

Also has anyone who owns a RetroFreak tested it yet with these new repro Hucards? I can confirm my Atlantean homebrew with blue 3D printed card does not work. Repros should work in theory if the card is an exact replica of an existing game.

I might order a Coryoon/Magical Chase combo cart, soldier blade special/final soldier special combo chip, or a Terra Cresta II/Tatsugin. I cant figure out which.......

Maybe I'm confusing myself and it's already explained.... But is it possible to have neutopia 1&2 in English, on a PCE system, on a black card?

Yes, I asked. He's making me a 2-in-1 Neutopia with US ROMs using Turbografx byte order. You can specify the ROM region (US or Japan release) as well as the console region byte order (Turbo or PCe).

I believe even if you only order a single game on the black cart, he still has to burn two copies of the ROM. But having two games on a single card is more fun! :dance:

EDIT: US game releases do require a slight modification to run on an unmodified PC Engine. The Everdrive flash card and Turbo PC Henshin adapter perform this modification automatically so I'm sure the ROM protection is trivial to circumvent.

I would say they will be quite resistance to wear except maybe for the label.  They seem to scratch easily.  The chip we are using has a data retention life expectancy of 20 years.

20 years is pretty good.
You should put a production date stamp on
Might help some people accept these as just temporary alternatives to the real thing.

Neat idea. Maybe give buyers the option of whether to do stack the images vertically or diagonal. I'm thinking maybe do the horizontal strips for the card art (due to the small size, horizontal logos on cards would be easier to read) and maybe the diagonal orientation for the boxart? But some people would want it uniform.

Perhaps do a poll? :-k
