As far as I can find out there have been several badges by different producers over the last years but currently there are no new ones being sold. If anyone knows different I would be happy to learn about it!

Or.. might someone have one for sale?

Are you seeking just the VDP, or an assembled MSX cartridge including VDP? If it's the second, you might try this page: http://www.tecnobytes.com.br/2019/12/powergraph-pre-order-20...

I was able to order PowerGraph Light from TecnoBytes earlier this year and after some typical COVID-19 shipping delays (I'm in the US, TecnoBytes ships from Brazil) I am now using it happily

I don't know whether any remain, but the fact they still have an order form seems promising

On http://www.tecnobytes.com.br/p/v9990-powergraph-light.html it says they're sold out. Do they accept orders again?

Yeah, but the other link shows them as in pre-order. And let’s you pay. I did, maybe a leap of faith Wink

Maybe email them?

I since had contact with them, actually because I thought of cancelling because I have now pre ordered an MSXVR which also has v9990 support. Veering off topic perhaps - it seems like an impressive machine to me if you can wait for it. But if all you’re after is v9990 then of course it’s a bit of a steep choice. In any case they told me that had already started the assembly and they would need two weeks. I figured I would use it anyway until the msxvr is in my possession and then I could still pass it on presumably..

I have not received the cart yet, nor confirmation of sending it, but given that it’s less than two weeks I have no reason to doubt that it’s coming either.

I went ahead and placed an order as well on Sunday but haven't heard anything from them since. This had me worried somewhat so I send them an email. Thanks for confirming they do accept orders.

So they did confirm my order two weeks ago, but since then, despite me sending them several emails, I haven't heard anything of them anymore. I'm starting to get a bit worried here.

Is there any way to reach Technobytes other than their gmail address?

With Tecnobytes it is often like that. As you're covered by PayPal i'd not worry yet. I have received my stuff in the past, though, it was always very much later than expected/promised/etc. So keep a lot of patience if you want 9990, i'd say, if you don't have any info for two months or so, then maybe time to open a dispute on PayPal Wink

***yes, i said 2 months. it can be that slow with Tecnobytes

Two months. For delivery (especially nowadays) I could accept that.
But an answer should come within a few days. No excuses.

I asked them again just now and they informed me they had sent my cartridge a few days back and gave me the track and trace for it.
