Super EverDrive / Re: Super Everdrive black screen
« on: October 13, 2016, 10:04 AM »
You say "the black screen error" like we're supposed to know exactly what you mean.

What do you mean??

Is it a legit Super Everdrive or a knock off? Super Everdrive V1? V2? Where was it purchased?

Are you able to load the OS? Is it not loading ROMs? You gotta give us more to work with.

Reformat your SD card. Reload the OS and ROMs from a fresh source (not copied to your computer from the card and then back again). Try to load a ROM. Try a different SD card. Run the diagnostic and let us know what pass fail messages you get.

Unless you're way into MSU-1, the revisions aren't that important.

MSU-1 is literally the only reason I am considering the SD2SNES. What should we be aware of with regards to MSU-1 and the revisions?

Holy Diver works for me without any edits. I haven't tried the others, can test later tonight. Maybe you have an older version of the pack?

I know the new packs have been going through some major testing revisions, especially FDS games.

Post a picture/link to a picture of your everdrive board front and back to help determine if it's fake.

Try downloading the roms from a new source, like the smokemonster everdrive pack. These are all thoroughly tested to be working on the everdrive and should help narrow down the issue.

He probably meant AVS firmware... Sounds to me like it could also be the maproute.bin

Where did you buy the Everdrive from? Where did the ROM's come from? If it's not a clone everdrive, it certainly sounds like an issue with ROMs or the file structure on your SD Card. Download from a different ROM set? Try a different brand/speed SD card? Are you using a full sized SD? Or a Micro-SD through an adapter?

AVS Firmware 1.20b6 seems to have fixed the previous issues with Castlevania 3 and Akumajou Densetsu. Make sure you update and take a look at those beautiful palette options!

Is this something that can be patched on the Everdrive side?
If the games worked at one point and then stopped working after an AVS firmware update, I think you would want to take it up with Bunnyboy/RetroUSB rather than Krikzz.

EDIT: where can you download the beta firmwares? Is there a changelog available?

I think its still valid to ask as the MMC5 mapper support on Everdrive is still only partially supported. And with hi def nes we got an update for firmware to fix some issues. AVS is more numerous than hi def nes at this point in units sold and will be a widely used fpga solution by Everdrive owners.

I think it deserves a look on the everdrive side to stay competitive with the powerpak, which does work on all firmwares for these games.

Having used my AVS for two weeks now and played with updating firmware and testing various cartridges there are some issues with how the Everdrive N8 and AVS interact that I am starting to see. Castlevania 3 worked just fine out of the box on the AVS and on all firmwares up to 1.20b3 confirmed via Everdrive. However I am now experiences problems with the Everdrive. It plays everything else I throw at it just fine except these two games:

On firmware 1.20b4/5 Akumajou Densetsu expansion audio is all jacked up and there is a persistent graphic glitch along the top bar of the screen while playing. Rolling back to 1.20b3 fixes both of these issues.

After updating to 1.20b5 I tested Castlevania 3 via Everdrive and actual Cartridge. My Castlevania 3 cartridge loads and plays fine on AVS. Everdrive Castlevania 3 has graphic glitches everywhere, and graphic scrolling appears to not even be functional. You can't see where any of the level is. Reverting back to older firmwares does not fix this issue. Even back to AVS 1.10.

I have tried reformatting and reloading all my roms and os software for the Everdrive. I tried everdrive OS v12 and v13. I have tried multiple SD cards and the ROMs from four different sources. Originally working was the smokemonster romset, but this CV3 rom is now glitchy also on the AVS. Tried GoodNES, no-intro, etc... all without any change in the graphic/scrolling glitches. The ROMs and Everdrive all do work on my AV Famicom without the same graphics problems. So I know for sure the issue lies with how the AVS and Everdrive are interacting.

Can anyone else confirm these issues? One user on Nintendoage confirmed the issue with Akumajou Densetsu, but did not test CV3. Anyone know of a fix? Is this something that can be patched on the Everdrive side?

Everdrive N8-NES version
OS v13

Still no issues here on my end to report. I didn't bother cutting the m2 trace. I just have the tape on the front(?) side, grounded, and wires for mmc5 and expansion audio resistors on the back.

Does anyone have a working copy of the iNES mapper 69 for Sunsoft 5B Audio? If so, can you upload it somewhere we can grab it? The tinyurl linked in the original post is deleted.

Have you done the self test from the Everdrive 64 menu options? Does everything check out OK? Or is there a failure somewhere in the hardware?

EverDrive N8 / Re: rom problems
« on: September 16, 2016, 11:51 PM »
I had to split my S folder of roms into 2 parts because of how many NES roms start with S, otherwise they wouldn't all show up

I will second this. That's why the first thing I said was to make sure the number of ROMs is less than 256 per folder.

My "S" titled games are in two folders -- Sa-Sr and Ss-Sz -- on my Everdrive.

I promise there is a reason for asking all of the questions in my previous post. You did not say whether you have tried using a different sd-card, or if you have tried ROMs from a different original source.

Just because they work on a pc emulator does not mean that they are good copies. There are MANY ROMs that will run on an emulator that will not run on the everdrive.

The Everdrive will support up to 256 items per folder. If you have more than this they will not appear in the file select list on the drive. Make sure you have less than 256 total items in the rom folder.

A couple of question to help narrow down what could be going on if that's not the case.

First. Where did you buy the Everdrive N8? Was it bought through krikzz or retrogate? Or did you buy elsewhere. It's possible you have a clone everdrive and that could cause issues.

Second. Have you tried using a different SD Card? The Everdrive n8 can be temperamental about certain brands of sd card.

Third. Have you tried loading the ROMs from a different source (i.e. GoodNES or no-intro)? It could be a bad source for the ROMs.

Please take all these things in to account, test, and report back.
