EverDrive N8 / Height of EverDrive N8 PRO Fami inserted into AVS?
« on: December 22, 2019, 10:10 PM »
Basically I'm deciding if I want to buy the EverDrive N8 PRO in Famicom style or NES style.
One of the systems I would use the cart with is my AVS so I was wondering how high it makes the AVS system with the cart inserted into the Famicom port.

I'd really love a measurement from the very bottom of the AVS to the very highest point on the flap of the AVS. This way I will be able to work out if it would make the flap be in the way of my TV screen or not.

Many thanks.

EverDrive GBA / Re: New EZ Omega is better than X5?
« on: August 16, 2019, 02:24 PM »
The power consumption is lower on the EverDrive GBA X5 so that's something pretty important to consider. Otherwise they are pretty similar. I bet the EverDrive GBA X5 is probably of better build quality though.

Very cool. KRIKzz, I'm curious about the new N8 Pro. I'm guessing that you'll be updating some of the mappers and whatnot there. Is there any chance some of those improvements might jump to the original N8?

I going to port whole mapper pack from PRO to original N8. Only ROMs limited by memory size will not work
Will the mapper pack be any different to the current OS V20 (other than bug fixes)

I've tested it and it does in fact auto boot the games and therefore skips the menu. It's a good idea for those who want or need that feature but everyone else should stick with the OS20 betas or OS16.

Really odd that there is a new version added. I wonder what it is. Hopefully a full OS20

I'm curious as to why they are working on a N8 pro, while the latest firmware for this version is loaded with issues???
Because this older N8 cart will not get any more updates at all so OS16 and betas for OS20 will be the end of the road for the N8.
The N8 Pro will get new firmware.

I don't know why exactly but on my Super NT with SD2SNES I just get a black screen after the initial introduction after picking my characters.

I wish we could ask Kevtris about it..... I have old Atari controlers and I've love to see if they worked!
Kevtris has been asked about things before but never answers questions about Jailbroken firmware. I don't know if he is actually allowed to discuss it. It could be part of his contract with Analogue.

Yeah, I'm just gonna go out on a limb, and say that Krikzz should get on the ball with a DS everdrive. The DSTWO 4 in 1 that I had, completely died after impacting a hard surface in my DSi. The build quality is therefore crap. They don't make these carts anymore and you can't buy them anywhere. Too bad, because that was the most decent cart around and they don't make it anymore. The only cart that MIGHT be able to replace it, would be the R4i gold 3DS plus (sounds like chinese quality, AKA crap) for $19. This is just ridiculous, that I have to buy cheap garbage for a DS flashcart instead of something that would have ACTUAL build quality. An Everdrive DS from Krikzz would sell like hot cakes!
This is exactly my issue. I don't really trust these Chinese quality devices. One of the things I love about the EverDrive carts is that you can trust that they are of high quality and are robust.
In the past I've had a fair few R4 carts die on me or become inconsistent. My favourite DS flash cart that I own is the Acekard 2i but it doesn't work on the current DSi and 3DS firmware. If it did I would just use that.

This is all very complicated really. It's ashame there is no easy best pick.

For example for SNES the SD2SNES Pro is definitively the best in pretty much everyway.

It would be great to see a DS flashcard that supports DSi games and has everything else these carts have. The extra CPU is probably best left out overall for battery reasons though unless it can be turned off or put into low power mode for when it's not used.

It seems like the DSTWO family of carts are nice for sure but the emulators don't seem good enough to make the battery loss worthwhile.

Ya as far as I know they are the most common out there. Because they don’t have a built in cpu the battery draw is comparable to a regular DS cartridge. Avoid any with timebombs (any that has a year listed in the title) and you should be good. Timebomb is an expiration date.

They range between $10 and $20.

Personally I’m thinking of getting one myself for most duties since my dstwo is such a battery drain.
Thank you! The makes a lot of sense. It sounds like the built in CPU isn't worth the battery drop.

I'm definitely considering getting an R4i Gold. If you do get one before I do maybe you could let me know what you think of it?

I'm absolutely no expert but I would say Atari would be very possible considering most Atari systems are weaker than the Genesis. It would just require Kevtris to implement it.

As for Sega CD. I'm not really sure as I would imagine the hardware to replicate it would be decently big so running the games and replicating the Sega CD unit might be too much. I would imagine it's very possible if a separate unit was made to do it. Again to be fair it would probably be up to Kevtris to implement it if it's possible.

So overall without being an expert at all I would say it's probably possible somehow. It's just if Kevtris wants to/or is allowed to implement it somehow.

Sorry for the vague answer but I saw nobody replied so thought I would try and answer the best I can.

But as I said DStwo has long been out of production so good luck trying to find one. If you did it’s probably not going to be cheap. Also warned it’s a nasty battery drain. I only use it plugged in... the emulators have not been updated in ages and have very limited list of compatible games...

There are emulators for r4i gold (or equivalents) as well, lolsnes if you want to run SNES but I don’t know how well it works, and even custom emulators on DS two struggle (just not fast enough for every game, unless you skip frames) or hit and miss with game compatibility.  Another issue is DS screen just doesn’t have enough space to display tv resolutions properly so part of the screen is cut off or you are forced to run it in a lower resolution zoomed out which makes text hard to read...

Personally I prefer a hacked PSP for snes emulation for most emulation, psp 3000 has good emulator support.
That's a very good point.
I take it the R4i Gold one is probably the best pickup now then considering features, price and battery life?

All very interesting.
Sounds like to me the best option if you want the emulators is SuperCard DSTWO or if you don't then that R4i Gold cart is best.

For 3DS I hear that CFW is the best way to go for 3DS games while the carts mentioned above do the DS games well.

Like personally right now I'm just after the best experience for playing NDS games and maybe some emulators. I might be interested in 3DS games at a later date but I prefer to wait until the console in question is fully updated and no longer worked on officially.

I currently have an Acekard 2i which I like quite a lot but it doesn't work on the latest DSi firmware or 3DS firmware.

DSTWO/DSTWO+ is probably still best, even if you don't care about the emulators it offers. But it's missing DSi game support and most games needs to be patched to work. It patches them in memory though so you don't need to patch them before putting them on SD card unlike some older flashcarts. You can choose to start them without patching which fixes some games but breaks most.

I don't remember if Download Play works or not. On my old slot-2 M3 it didn't I think.
Ok thank you very much for explaining. To be fair there were not many DSi games and even less that are actually worth playing. The emulators definitely interest me but are not the most important part.

With the patching does it patch them for you or do you need to download and add the patches for it?

Download play isn't really a problem for me. I mostly just want to use one for ROM hacks, emulators etc.
