Off Topic / Re: Atari 7800 Everdrive... Any interest in this?

Regardless of the current situation in Ukraine, I'm glad Krikzz spends his time on engineering and programming rather than responding to every PM in his overflowing inbox. To me, every moment he spends on engineering is a step towards exciting new products and is far more beneficial to the customer than replying to your annoying inquiries regarding some other random flash cartridge.

Krikzz won't ban you. He has more important things to do.

EverDrive 64 / Re: "new" controller packs on ebay

I had one given to me and it just didn't work at all. Seems to be on and off, depending on the game.
Go official.

in the dream i saw the strangers, they kept gb/gbc everdrive in the hands
This line is epic.

Can't wait :)

It's probably because bunnyboy is getting out of the SNES repro biz and only selling off his existing stock.

i'm not totally agree with your idea.
For some games, i feel like you. Playing a game could be compared to a journey, or watching a film. Once its' over, well, why watch only the end ?
But for some others, you played, spent soOo much times to beat a score or to won an item. Those who played Perfect Dark and won every cheats know what I mean ! (those damn fu**ing perfect bots...) YES yes, i know what you'll reply to me. You can save your Perfect Dark play on the mem card. It was just an exemple. It's the same for GoldenEye or other games like Diddy Kong Racing. It's just that Perfect Dark had to be like a nightmare to me :)
While it would be nice to backup all my GoldenEye data, having an abominable Everdrive with a female slot doesn't seem like the way to do it. I maintain my opinion that this would be a job better reserved for a separate unit. Something that does ROM dumps would be a better contender.

And i think that the complete re-design of the ED64 board would be a huge work ; and i think that Krikzz has some project more "important" to spend his time.
At least for now :)
Let's keep this projext for his "retirement".
I agree wholeheartedly.

I'm not arguing that they shouldn't exist nor am I saying it wouldn't be a good item to own.
I'm just saying that it is of my opinion that it makes more sense to complete the "Everdrive Lineup" before venturing into projects like the one you're suggesting. Even if Krikzz were to make this, what next? A second SKU for every single console he's ever done? Custom fabrication for every single plastic cart for every console?

And yes, a GB Everdrive would be amazing, but I certainly don't want it to look like a GameShark.

Not that it's important to the debate, but I don't think I'd buy an N64 one. I don't consider my save files to be all that precious. I'd rather just run through the game again, relive those memories and create new ones, rather than beginning from where I left off 10+ years ago.

Glad to hear you found your consoles!

My confusion persists.

You can backup, restore, save EEPROM, 4X EEPROM, SRAM, FlashRAM and physical Controller Pak data to/from the SD card with the Everdrive. We are all aware of and on the same page with this, yes?

The Everdrive cannot do any of this with a physical, original, stock N64 cartridge. If the claim is that it should do this, please allow me to disagree. It'd be a waste of resources, money and most importantly, Krikzz's time spent developing.

In no particular order, is the general consensus that the following are logical, desired devices?

GB/GBC Everdrive
GBA Everdrive
Jaguar Everdrive
NeoGeo AES/MVS Everdrive

I would personally buy 3 of these devices upon release.

For example with ED64  we cant backup save data from original cartridges
well of course you cant, why would anyone wanna do that if they have the original carts anyway, it dont make no sense what so ever..

I guess this was where my misunderstanding was. I certainly don't expect any of my Everdrives to backup SRAM from an original cart  ???
I don't blame my screwdriver when I can't tighten a hex bolt with it. I get another tool.

Man, we're a demanding bunch, lol.
Krikzz, can you make the next Everdrive end world hunger please? Thanks.

We already have a new ED64...its called v2 cant get any better than that, krikzz already helps in the production of SD2SNES so... ::)
For example with ED64  we cant backup save data from original cartridges. I want all my time trials records from Mario Kart, Diddy Kong Racing. I want my masks, weapons, hearts from TLOZ Majoras Mask

Save datas are more important than roms. Save datas are time spent

I agree with dvd; Maybe for the 64, it'd be nice to have control pak data backed up automatically like SRAM data is, but that would just be an OS update. There's no need for a new Super ED or ED64.

I am pretty sure I saved my game just fine :-)
Yup.

A gba cart won't fit into a gb / gbc slot.

1 PCB that:

A) Fits into either a GB or GBA cart.
B) Switches to GB or GBA "mode" based upon received voltage

So, the PCB could be used:
A) In a GB cart, for those who want to exclusively use it for GB/GBC usage in any GB/GBC/GBA system
-OR-
B) In a custom GBA cart shell that could trigger the GBA's mechanical switch (something like a disk's write protection switch) so that the Everdrive could boot in either GB or GBA mode in a GBA system.

Like I said, I realize it's a lot to ask of one cart. The "custom GBA shell" being particularly troublesome, as I doubt Krikzz has much interest in fabricating such a thing.
Maybe 2 separate carts does make more sense, but maybe more SKUs costs more money than a one PCB solution. All I'm saying is that I think it's possible and I think it'd be amazing to have a GBA cart capable of ALL the systems.

And yeah, I'd buy two and keep one in each type of shell since I still like my DMG.
