I had these printed by pboland and was completely blown away:

Mega EverDrive / Re: Master System: Emulated or Flashed Natively?

Thanks Krikzz. That's incredible to hear. I'd recommend adding explicitly to the product info, because native gaming is a major selling point to SMS fans like myself   :D

Mega EverDrive / Master System: Emulated or Flashed Natively?
« on: October 16, 2013, 12:10 AM »
I'm curious to know if Master System games are emulated or flashed to run natively by the Everdrive like Genesis games? Very sorry if this answered elsewhere, but my searches didn't turn up the answer.

Super EverDrive / Re: Super UFO pro 8 vs. Everdrive and SD2SNES

I just posted a thread about the many problems with the Super UFO Pro 8 here. Basically, even the cheapest person on earth will be able to see that the UFO8 is not a good idea for quite a few major reasons.

People keep asking about the differences between the Super Everdrive and the Super UFO Pro 8. I wanted to thoroughly shoot down the UFO8 and show how I came to an informed decision to go with the Super Everdrive.

Here's what you get for just $20 more with the Super Everdrive board:
-Lifetime warranty
-Actively updated firmware & OS
-Long file names -- this is huge. The UFO8 can only read the first 6 letters of game titles! Think about how that will work for the section starting with "Super". SUPERM~1 (Superman?, Super Mario World?, Super Mario Kart?, Super Mario All-Stars?), and then extrapolate that to all series with more than one game (Donkey Kong Country, Mega Man, Final Fantasy, Star Wars, etc). You have to memorize them by number with the UFO8!
-All stated features working, and the potential for new future features -- UFO8 marketing blatantly lies about its capabilities. Look on youtube for proof that every UFO8 feature is irreparably broken in some way or another.
-Fast loading games
-Working save state management -- You have to jump through hoops with the UFO8 to save states, and then be ready for them to disappear randomly.
-Automatic state saving when shut off/loaded at startup.
-Reliability -- Internet forums are full of complaints about the UFO8s breaking and failing.
-The SED is a modern design from the ground up -- The UFO8 is a slightly modified 3.5" floppy disk loader designed decades ago! The only thing changed is the sdcard reader replacing the 3.5" drive. This explains the absurd OS, broken and missing features, complex save states, slow speed, Jingle Bells title screen music (yes, it actually plays Jingle Bells...!), and DOS-era file-name limitations.

I'd pay $20 just to get rid of Jingle Bells, so that's a lot of bonus features for such a small difference in cost!

Here are a couple of Mega Everdrive or Everdrive-MD labels that I made. One was for myself themed on Taito's Saint Sword, and the Streets of Rage themed label was for a friend. These are unofficial and not affiliated with Krikzz in any way.

Printing instructions: Don't print the image below. Instead download the 600dpi TIFs below each image. For US carts, print at 7.4cm wide x 6.8cm tall.. I've also included a layered PDN (Paint.NET) file so you can easily make your own label.

Super EverDrive / unofficial Super Everdrive Labels by smokemonster
« on: October 07, 2013, 04:28 AM »
update: I didn't realize that the Super Everdrive logo that I used was originally designed by Stone Age Gamer. I grabbed it from the S-ED manual thinking that it was the official logo, but SAG actually wrote that manual and designed the graphic. SAG contacted me asking that my label not be redistributed so I've removed the links to my templates and artwork.

I made a few Super Everdrive labels and wanted to share them. Many of the design ideas and images came from the Everdrive Cover Design thread at assemblergames. These are entirely unofficial and not affiliated with Krikzz.

Printing instructions: Don't print the PNGs below. Instead download the TIFs linked below each image. For US carts, print at 8.2cm wide x 4.4 cm tall. I've also included a layered PDN (Paint.NET) file so you can easily make your own label.

My original design is based on veganx's, with a new SED logo and high quality vector images:

The v2 design was meant to be a tribute to Krikzz's work:
