I am pretty sure that my Rebel module also work.

I thnk you might be correct with the Rebel working, I think I saw in someones Aktive ELO List Rebel Mobile mentioned recently.

But it says nothing about Rebel 5,0, B&P or MM II (IIRC somebody wrote in another forum, that MM II would not work in a Mobil, but i cannot confirm this at the moment)


I can confirm that MMII does not work inside my Mobils

Hi,
By the way, I think that there is may be another thing to take into account : there are two different Mobil : one with an LCD display, and the other without. I don't know if this second one has an "red digits" display or not : it seems so but mine does not display anything.

No, that display (or should i better say "window"? ) is just blackened; H&G just used the same case as the LCD-Mobil has. It can only be used with the Mirage module, as this has its own display.


Thanks for the precision ! So now I know that my two Mobile are working.

best regards,
Alain

If you put a Mirage module in a LCD-Mobil, then you see the moves twice!

No chance for a Polgar: Only modules, that need a 7-segment LCD work in a Mobil.

Here is a list of working modules:

But it says nothing about Rebel 5,0, B&P or MM II (IIRC somebody wrote in another forum, that MM II would not work in a Mobil, but i cannot confirm this at the moment)

So, I cannot put the same modules in both Mobil : I only can put modules with a display in one, and the other accepts the modules where the moves can be keyed in.

Ismenio:
The only ones that I think work on the Mephisto Mobil are:

Mirage
MM I
MM IV
MMV
Roma II
Other than the above I do not think others work.  I tried on mine to see if others work the  Polgar and MM II and they wont even side fully into the Mobil  Unit.

Mephisto Mobil - any incompatible cartridges?

Hi All,

I'm trying to help a visitor so I'm posting her question here.

Is there any Mephisto cartridge that does NOT work on a Mephisto Mobil unit?

Thanks,

Ismenio
