Hello there, i'm new to this forum but have owned a Mega EverDrive flash cart for just over 2 years now. I have read similar posts on here about others stating that the Mega EverDrive has problems playing a few Master System games, well I would like to add to that list as I frequently play alot of Master System games through my Mega Drive on the Mega EverDrive cart and have come across a few others that don't play that I would like to post here as a reference for the future and hope that maybe one day it will be fixed.

1. The Jungle Book (1993) this title plays perfectly until you reach the third level in the game which is the bonus stage that has you running along the marching elephants, for whatever reason, this level won't load and as soon as level 2 is finished which is the one Mowgli is climbing a tree and defeats the snake boss, after the score screen you're greeted with a grey screen for a few seconds and then the game automatically resets itself back to the title screen. This isn't a problem for me really because I own the original cartridge and the original cartridge plays flawlessly on the Master System converter for mega Drive which I also own.

2. Super Space Invaders (1993) I read a post of someone saying that this game doesn't play on the mega EverDrive cart, well I can confirm that he or she is right! Super Space Invaders keeps looping constantly on the very first screen which has scrolling text, this screen keeps repeating itself and we never get to the title screen at all. Again, not a problem for me personally as I own the regular cartridge in which it plays perfectly on the Master System converter.

3. Sega Chess (1991) How many of us are actually going to play a game of chess on here ay? Well it may not be a popular game by any standards but none the less it still has to be mentioned for reference sake. Sega Chess will not boot at all, after pressing button to go into the game rom, the screen quickly flashes (as it always does when booting into Master System mode) and then nothing! A blank screen! The first thing we should see is a knight holding a flag but this never happens. Once again not a problem for me as I own the regular cartridge and can confirm that the regular cartridge works perfectly on the Master System converter.

4. The Lion King (1994) Now sadly this is one game I really wanted to try out on the Master System but the Mega EverDrive refuses to play it. Now on this one, the game boots up and we see the title screen but as soon as the first level loads up, the screen goes pitch black again like Sega Chess and we never get to actually play the game. This game I don't own on a single cart and I only own the Mega Drive version so I guess i'm gonna have to go on ebay and try and track the game down on a single cart and case for my collection.

5. F-16 Fighter: But everybody knows this one won't play on any Mega Drive or Genesis even without the Mega EverDrive cart as it is a fault with the actual game. I just thought i'd mention it here.

Off the top of my head I can recall that these titles won't play correctly if the Mega Drive/Genesis console is hooked up to a Mega-CD/SEGA-CD add-on while using the Mega EEverDrive flash cart:

1. Black Belt
2. World Grand Prix
3. The Addams Family
4. Fantasy Zone
5. Ghost House

what happens is the C button on a Mega Drive controller which is mapped at button 2 on a Master System controller won't respond properly, for instance, in Black Belt instead of throwing a kick by pressing C button, he turns the other way and crouches instead. Just remember to unhook your MD/Genesis from the Mega-CD/SEGA-CD attachment if you're thinking of playing these titles.
