I once did it, it worked well but it looked like a real mess. I still
wonder if they used some sort of a copy protection, because it didn't

I don't know. I also still have the schematics I made back then, but I
really doubt it could be reproduced by anyone else than me ;-) Last time

Nowadays I also have original versions of the FC3. Actually it never
really made sense to copy it, because it sold for 69DM and today I think

a lot of time. But when I was 16 or so time didn't matter that much ;-)
