FXPAK (SD2SNES) / Re: Save states on SD2Snes
« on: October 29, 2019, 10:51 PM »
I could probably beat IV without save states, but that would require a lot more time investment (and added frustration). Like I said, I'm just trying to complete and enjoy the games at this point, have an extremely limited time to devote to any one game, literally have thousands of games I still need to play. This is what save states mean to me: Save time and frustration.

^Thank you for that, thanks to using save states I was finally able to beat Castlevania IV!

Here's hoping that they'll implement this feature in an official firmware update- obviously it won't be perfect, but having it makes some games much more enjoyable for someone like me who doesn't have all the time in the world to master each game.

- Castlevania 4 is a difficult game? don't go playing the NES ones. ;)

- After you get past a certain age, you realize it's not about the destination but the ride. These classic games are still awesome to play whether you ever finish them or not, this is why I personally have spent so much of what little money I make on classic consoles.

But I'm not critizing you though, to each his own. Save states are tons of fun for many different reasons.
I'm going through the Castlevania games in order of release, so yes, I beat the 3 NES/Famicom games but also using save states. Just 100% Rondo of Blood on my PC Engine (no save states used there). I have no issues with using them, if I didn't I would never complete these games, and I would probably just curse the game out and never play them again. I make no apologies about using them, I'm not trying to prove anything to anyone. I'm just trying to play the games, enjoy them, and complete them because I want to go on to the next one. And with so many thousands of games I want to play, this is the only way I can feasibly get through them. So if you are against using them, all the power to you. But for me, I'm just trying to enjoy my gameplay time, because I have an extremely limited time now that I can devote to playing games and I have so many to go through.

So what is going on in regards to the save states? I downloaded the 1.8 firmware and don't have any options for in game save states, what the heck?

EverDrive GBA / Re: New EZ Omega is better than X5?

Coming soon :o

Well,  the EZFLash Omega clocks drifts over time considerably by several minutes. Also if the EZOmega malfunctions after 6 months can you get an almost free replacement/fix from your chinese seller? I guess not.
I decided to just go ahead and get the X5, since they had free shipping on SAG that was ending on Friday, plus they had another $8 coupon and I had a few more points saved up for additinal discounts.

The reason I still paid twice as much for an X5 over the EZO was from reading reviews of the EZO. Seems that on paper it is the superior product, but long term reliability is an issue, as is the build quality. A lot of people were quite unhappy with losing their saves as well. I haven't really had any negative experiences with the Everdrive line, but have had a bad experience with the EZIV so that was my main decision.

I just hope I didn't screw myself over if an X7 is coming out in the near future.

Well, the EZ Flash was simply too complicated for me to use. I like to use my Flash Carts mainly to run ROM hacks, and the EZ Flash wasn't able to run any of them. It wasn't even able to run some basic ROMs like Pokemon, which needed to be edited with a Hex editor and all this other crap done with it... The load times were also quite long. I didn't like the interface that much.

All in all, a pretty lousy product that I definitely regret getting. I just want a GBA flash cart that I can put my entire GBA Romset on, including hacks and translations, and have them run perfectly (although I understand the limitations with games like Wario Ware Twisted and Boktai). I also don't want to have to do any additional modifcation or hacking to allow the ROMs to run properly.

Yeah definitely the X5.
Who doesn't love spending more money for less features, right?
Yeah, I understand this is a Krikzz forum, but not sure why people are recommending the X5 so vehemently when it seems the only benefit it has over the EZO is better battery life (I'll be using my DS and GBASP for this so I can always recharge the batteries before fully drained) and better build quality. Plus it will cost $40-50 more. Can someone who owns both chime in? I want to order soon as I'll be leaving on a relatively long trip and my only form of gaming will probably be with this flash cart.

I'm going on a trip and was going to get a Everdrive X5. It would cost me $100 after the discounts I have on Stone Age Gamer. But then I came across this thread, and it seems that for $40 less, I can get the EZ Omega for just $60 and it is a superior product with many more features. My issue is that I had an EZ Flash IV and that thing was a complete piece of trash.

Which should I go with, EZO or the X5?

EverDrive N8 / Re: Castlevania 3
« on: June 10, 2019, 05:50 AM »
Thanks for mentioning those firmwares, yes, I downloaded one and now am able to use save states with the game. Why are these O.S's not considered "official" yet?

News / Re: EDN8 OS v20-BETA. Large update incoming

Don't know how I missed this thread, awesome stuff here. Just to clarify, so RC7 will have all the features from all previous OS updates, correct?

Yes, I looked up the list here: http://www.dbwbp.com/misc/Everdrive_N8_Compatibility_List_(OS_V15).pdf

Seems Castlevania III/Akumajou Densetsu is one of the few games that does not support save states. A real shame, because I'd probably finally be able to complete the game with that addition, haha.

I'm using the JDM version along with the hacks to translate the game and improve controls, works fine on my Famicom (great sound, BTW) but I can't get save states to work? The other Castlevania games work fine with this feature, but not this one for some reason?

FXPAK (SD2SNES) / Re: Firmware v1.10.3 are out.
« on: April 05, 2019, 11:17 AM »
This says for "MkII" models. Did a new SD2SNES come out recently? Or will this firmware work with my unit that I bought 4 years ago?

EverDrive N8 / Re: Any way to run bigger ROM files?
« on: March 31, 2019, 02:32 AM »
So is there no way at all to run these games on actual hardware than to buy/make a repro cart? I tried running these games on my NES classic and to still no avail, as even in it's modded form that console doesn't support the 163 mapper. I feel like the NES/Famicom community is large enough that some people would be working on this? Considering the many translations/hacks that are 1+MB in size.

Thank you for your in-depth reply. I understand, but it's still a real bummer. I have most of the original games on cartridge already, I prefer to use flash carts to run hacks/translations/mods on actual hardware, as I really dislike emulation. Guess I have no choice but to run Pokemon Yellow NES and Final Fantasy VII NES on my NES Classic...
