In the year of 2021 Opcode Games chose
to manufacture a completely new design for his new ColecoVision PCB for
his new upcoming ColecoVision Cartridges.
This new little wonder is his latest
and present PCB.
The new 2021 version replaces the previous 2016 version which was also
After Eduardo at Opcode Games dropped
its big project SGM2 / SGM PRO / Prometheus / OMNI, he started designing
a new PCB for his new cartridge shell.
OMNI was Opcode Games big Console
project with teams, investors and developers leaded by Victor Trucco.
SGM2 was a downscaled project on an advanced tier, with improved
graphics and sound.
So no F18A graphics and no thundering bass, mesmerizing music, and

for their new upcoming ColecoVision games for Super Game Cartridge or
shortened to SGC.
SGC is powered with a very avanced Bank switching and with Save features be a lot advanced.
Save functions is based on EEPROM, with data retention of 100 years and
endurance of 1 million write cycles.
With that means you are able to play the game 1 million times on
average before the EEPROM fails, so no need for battery at all.
The new ColecoVision Super Game
Cartridge can also be used with regular ColecoVision games.
So with this new Cartridge design and this new 2021 PCB,
will this together with SGM1 from Opcode
Games now have integrated these functions.
And all future ColecoVision games from Opcode Games will require the Super Game Module
and the use of the new Super Game Cartridge.
These 2 things belongs together if the game itself is from Opcode Games'
New and upcoming games for this new
Gray Cartridge with related PCB with Saving Features is:
The Goonies - Popeye - Phoenix -
Knightmare - Pac-Man DX - Lady Bug - Amidar
- Moon Cresta - Time Pilot -
