Yes. You can use any FUN card programmed with the appropriate software. The files for the FUN card come in .hex format and there are either 3 or 2 files depending on the maker. In case of only 2 files the internal eeprom of the ATMEL 90S8515 is left empty. You will also need a FUN programmer and programming software such as Funprom or Funmagic. There are other programs and programmers as well but the above-mentioned use LPT port for communication with the card and the programmer is really simple which makes it the cheapest solution for FUN cards.

1.2Mtr Polar MTG yes it has been on the arc for 25 years and is now fixed on 13 East using two pairs of rusty molegrips. Unlike me they never groan but always perform.

Agreed Rizla, but preference for me is the fun programmer USB, it is a bit more convenient, only difference being the USB connector instead of LPT

Do not know the specifics of your particular programmer but my software insists on detecting the card details as soon as it is inserted, it then tell you what it is actaully or what it is equivalent to e.g. my card on the outside says it is a funcard 4 Prussian Galaxy 2 the processor is detected as an AT90S8515 and the memory 24C256. What exactly did you want to know?
