Hi! I decided to make my own power base converter. I found a schematic online, and now all I need is a Genesis game I will never miss and a 50 pin IDC edge connector. I can't seem to find the edge connector... Its an essential part since it is what connects to the Master System games. Also, any ideas on a Genesis game I will never miss?

by the way, I would much prefer to make a power base converter (aka master mega converter) than purchase one. It will be fun... and I get to test it out on my friend's Genesis model 2 if I get it done before I get my Genesis model 1 and Sega CD! I can't wait to play After Burner.

I found a couple schematics:

try to track down a old 486 or lower mainboard with old ISA slots,
IIRC the ISA slot uses the same spacing as the connector you need.
