Mega EverDrive / Re: Master System games with Mega Sg + X7

Sorry, I don't feel comfortable posting my order number on here, but I will say that I also ordered mine immediately after the preorders went up. Mine shipped last Friday and I received it yesterday (Tuesday).

That's fair, would you be comfortable saying if yours was higher or lower than 18400(not my actual number)?

Mega EverDrive / Re: Master System games with Mega Sg + X7

So, I'm trying to load Master System games from my X7 running on a Mega Sg and failing miserably. I'm not quite sure if this is even possible or not as there is some contradicting information out there. For example, GameSack's review of the Mega Sg says "If you have Master System games on your Genesis EverDrive, they're not gonna run here", while My Life in Gaming's review states "The Mega EverDrive X7 works like a charm and will boot Genesis, Master System and even SG-1000 games". Should this be possible, or do I need a Master EverDrive?

I personally have never had any success booting Master System games from my X7, on either a Model 1 US Genesis or a CDX. I'm running bios 3.06, which should be new enough to support this, but I just get a black screen when loading .sms files. I do have the 3 different region sms bios files in my \MEGA folder, named correctly.

Any thoughts? Do I just have a bad X7 perhaps? I had given up on this feature in the past, but was hoping the Mega Sg would be able to get around the problem.

Update:
I ended up fixing this myself in just a few minutes by deleting the 3 sms bios files in the \MEGA folder. I can confirm that you can load both SMS and SG-1000 games from the Mega EverDrive X7 on the Mega Sg.

Enjoy.

Thanks

Can I ask you if you could post your order number for your Mega Sg? I ordered mine the day they went up, and mine has not shipped yet. A buddy of mine ordered two hours before me, and his shipped last week Friday. Just trying to gather information.

Also, thank you for posting the info on the SMS games! Can't wait to try it myself!

Ah, so basically I'm not doing anything wrong, it's just that a bunch of games don't work right on the Genesis at all. Ok, thanks, appreciate it. The Everdrive was marked as being able to play GG games, so I assumed it was something I was missing.

Mega EverDrive / Playing Game Gear on an x7 w/ Mk II Genesis
« on: March 24, 2019, 06:06 AM »
Hello! I recently got my Mega Everdrive x7 to use with my Mk II Genesis, and so far I love it. Everything works great except Game Gear games. They all seem to have distorted color palettes, usually some form of bright teal type color, and they also don't seem to be accepting controller inputs. I'd read something about the Mk II and Mk III Genesis not being as good at playing the 8 bit software, does this have something to do with this? Are my ROMs maybe bad? IS there a BIOS file I'm missing that I should have in my MEGA folder? Thank you so much for your help, it is greatly appreciated!

Also, I can make a clip of what I am talking about if it might help. Thanks!

Thank you for all your work on the FDS audio and for fixing the A B SIDE ERR 07 in Zelda II. Absolutely loving RC7!

The peaple who have problem with newer firmware.
Are you sure your cart isn't fake? Cause i hear v14 firmware was on the fake carts and fake carts don't go well with higher firmware.
If it's real and you got it from a real seller you should of exchanged it when you had the chance.

I bought mine from this site. I'd really like this A B SIDE ERR 07 issue to be fixed, as it was not present on previous releases. I really don't want to have to revert to the old firmware and lose out on all these awesome new features and sound because this error pops randomly. :(

Hello, since installing any of the Beta or RC versions, I have had this error occur on loading points in Zelda II.

https://clips.twitch.tv/AnnoyingRespectfulQueleaCharlietheUnicorn

It pops up and said A B SIDE ERR 07

It did not do this on the last stable release. Must be something changed in FDS code somewhere that causes this.

Please read the last few pages of the thread.  This has been discussed, and answered, countless times.

Alright, but I'm not holding SELECT, these aren't even points where the disk is meant to be flipped, it seems to be random when/where it does it. I obviously am aware it goes away, but this basically makes my Everdrive unusable for FDS speedruns. This is a serious issue that wasn't present before these v20 Betas and RCs. I would, however like to have working FDS audio finally. I'm not even using the thing the posts you pointed at blame for the error. So as far as I am concerned, this has not been answered suitably any times. And always in reference to Zelda 1, which is not the game I am even playing.
