    For the past nine or so months of fiddling with my Blu+, I compiled a list of my favourite things that run on it. It limits itself to one 128MB SMC card, sort of my ideal software library. I tried to make it as friendlier as possible, so I used a bit of JavaScript, which you need enabled in order to view it.

    Check it out and say what doesn't belong there, or what should be added!

    The List

    Unless you like using the mod playing feature in Lazyreader, I recommend you get !reader instead. You can easily adjust the sharpness and size of the font to make any text file easy to read. Plus, it has excellent zip archive support. I have over 2000 text files from www.textfiles.com, yet they only take up ~6 MB.

    Thanks for the suggestion, I'll look !reader up. And thanks for the link too, I had no idea that site existed, and it seems to be loaded with just what I was looking for :)

    If you can, get Castaway and the Atari ST version of Stunt Car Racer.
    While the C64 version is nice, the 16 bit version is much better.

    White Demon, I played the ST version of Stuntcar, but for some reason I enjoy the C64 one more.

    Are 9.5MB enough for savestates? :-\

    I have 5 128 MB SMCs in use:

    1 with mainly emulators (Colecovision, C64, CPC, Atari 800, GB/GBC, Lynx, NES, PCE, SNES, SMS, Genesis)
    1 with SCUMM and Sierra interpreters, Doom, Rise of the Triad and large SID collection
    1 with Quake, Doom, Hexen, Heretic
    2 with movies & TV series

    and some ebooks and homebrew on most cards as well.

    Update: Added River City Ransom under NES, what a fun game!

    Mirrorhead: I only have four cards, three 128MB's and one 16MB. I restrict myself to only using one at a time so that they'll last me a lifetime - yea, I'm like that :(

    Well, the card with the emulators on is the one I use most of the time. That`s basically my personal "one SMC to rule them all". :D But it`s always good to have choices available as I spend a lot of time on trains.

    Right now I`m totally obsessed with playing Shining Force.
