Title: Everdrive GG 1.3?
Post by: sammargh on July 25, 2019, 10:49 PM
Received the redesign in the mail from SAG today and was looking over the pcb to see what changed between v1.2 and 1.3. The only difference I can see BOM-wise is that the flash rom has been upgraded from 16mbit to 64mbit. Does this mean you can make larger roms or is it just due to EOL part availability and 8mbit is still the limit?

Furthermore clicking around in this sub-forum what is going on with the os? 0 reply other than "we're aware of it!" for 4 years now on SG-1000, Micro Machines 2/Asterix being bugged as well as other various bugs. 0 firmware updates since 2017. What's up with this cart?

Sorry to be the bearer of bad news but there's been an EverDrive GG X7 in the works from a good while now, so support for the original EverDrive GG has declined in recent years. The new X7 version was apparently going to be released around the same time as the Master EverDrive X7 in February 2018, but due to some issues with the plastic shell molds its been on hold for a long time now:-

I believe the EverDrive GG is also one of the lowest selling EverDrive's, so it never received as much interest/demand for OS updates as other models.

Ah, krikzz'd again. I give up trying to figure out his roadmap, I can't count the number of times this has happened. At least there are other players in the flash cart field now that have a little more professionalism.
