Sock Master:
In the end, I made the decision that it would be much better to come up with a clean and tidy solution for the extra graphics.  So I jumped all-in and designed and ordered the PCBs to do it right.

Much more professional looking and pretty simple to install.  No soldering, no modifications to your DK PCB.  Just pull out the graphics and color ROMs and plug these little PCBs into the sockets.

I think I'm nearly ready to make this happen.  I just have to wait for more parts to arrive - I only have the parts to build three graphics kits right now.  Also I still have to write the documentation/instructions for it... wheee! 

The tentative price is $85 for the Multi Remix Tournament Kit itself and $85 for the Multi Graphics Kit.
The Remix Kit does not require the graphics kit to be installed, but you do need the graphics kit (or change your own graphics ROMs) in order to play Spooky Donkey Kong, DK Spooky Remix, Christmas Donkey Kong or DK XMas Remix.

The Graphics kit includes regular DK graphics, the Spooky graphics, Christmas graphics and bonus rainbow graphics to fill it out.

The graphics kit lets the Remix kit select between 4 different graphics sets.  If you opt to simply replace the graphics ROMs on your DK PCB instead, you can only play one graphics set at a time unless you also do the select line modifications outlined in an earlier post.  The graphics kit just makes this easy and tidy.
