EverDrive N8 / Re: Compatibility with RetroUSB's AVS??
« on: September 15, 2016, 07:40 AM »
Reformat the sd-card and restore the OS and ROMs from an original source. DO NOT just copy them from the card to your computer and then back again.

Download a new copy of the latest OS from the site here, and load the roms from wherever you store them on your pc. Then, test to eliminate the possibility that it is structure/file corruption on your card. Then test with a different SD card, if you have one, that is a different brand and possibly not UHS-I.

Thanks for the tip. I formatted the SD card and re-extracted the ROMs onto card and have been playing on the AVS without issues so far this evening.

Pretty strange that it worked, since my N8 and SD card is fairly new and I basically just did this process a few months ago (formatted and extracted ROMs onto it), but I'm not complaining :P

Glad it worked for you. I had an issue some time back trying to get an OS update to work and ended up with my N8 not loading at all until I reformatted and reloaded everything fresh. I think the Everdrive N8 is just a bit temperamental with certain SD cards and file/structure changes. Seems to be a good catch all for general weirdness and freezing.

Try with a different SD Card. It could be the card that is causing the issue.

Being that the AVS is an FPGA solution, it has potential to add additional features and be continually updated. For $185 it provides great features, 100% compatibility with Everdrive/Powerpak/NES/Homebrew games, and value to retro enthusiasts -- in my opinion, much more so than the RGB mod and framemeister.

The NES-RGB solution loses some fidelity converting from analog to digital and requires expensive add-on hardware like the Framemeister to provide comparable high definition fidelity. It's definitely playing second chair to both the Hi-def NES and AVS, for me. (MUCH more expensive, less visual fidelity, no future updates outside of framemeister profiles). I have both an AVS and a Hi-def NES kit on order.

Hi-def NES and AVS both do not have any inherent lag introduced with the high def digital video output. --And both are compatible with Everdrive and all other NES games.

EverDrive N8 / Re: Nes (72-pin) to Famicom (60-pin) converter mod

Not needed in this case. I went and gave it a thorough cleaning with a bit of an abrasive cleaner to make sure corrosion wasn't the culprit. (It was particularly dirty from an ebay seller - and I had gotten it to work on my front loader NES with just alcohol/q-tips)

My Metroid cart is completely clean now, and fired right up without any troubles through the adapter. So, it seems the copper tape shield is the magic solution after all.

I would try formatting the sd card and loading all the files on it fresh. Don't just copy them to a folder and then back. Redownload the OS files and load your ROMs from an original source.

I have fixed issues similar to this by just starting it all fresh again. It could be an issue with corrupt data, and just copying the files back and forth from one sd card to another will not fix that issue.

Copper tape definitely made the adapter infinitely less glitchy for me. I couldn't get the solder to flow over to where i scratched off the coating. I ended up just running a wire to ground from my solder bead. I have not added the additional capacitor/resistor.

I tested with the Everdrive N8 loading bubble bobble for about 10 minutes without any resets. I also tested with the super mario adventure romhack (which i would get crashes on regularly) and found no issues in the few minutes I spent with it.

I also confirmed it works with SMB2 cart without issues, though I hadn't tested prior to adding the tape. However, I can't seem to get my Metroid cart to work with the adapter. The game itself runs fine from my everdrive, but my cart doesn't seem to want to do anything but hold on the grey screen.
