News / Re: EDN8 OS v20-BETA. Large update incoming

Yes VRC5 would be great! But it looks like VRC5 mapper assignment isn't finalized yet so it's still a bit early. NES 2.0 rom support would also be great.

I think all the VRC5 games that have been dumped fall under the category of "ROMs limited by memory size", no?
At least the existing dumps from CaH4e3's page were are all 512kB of PRG... and that 512kB is in addition to the fixed 128kB ROM the adapter itself contains.
No way you could make that fit on a regular Everdrive N8's PRG without very elaborate ROM hacking skillz. And I'm willing to bet the same goes for any other titles that haven't been tracked down and dumped yet.

So looks like one of the few non-multicart use cases for the new Everdrive N8 Pro... :)

SD2SNES / SD2SNES Pro, Super NT and 8BitDo Adapter
« Last post by kygly on October 20, 2019, 08:31 PM »
Hello everyone,
I’m having issues with the three products listed in the title working together. When I use my Super NT with my 8BitDo controller I have zero issues and it’s been that way since launch. When I try to use the SD2SNES pro I get what appears to be power issues. The unit won’t start and the light goes yellow. If I unplug the controller or use an original SNES controller it starts just fine.
I’ve tried using higher power bricks than the one the comes with the Super NT, but that hasn’t solved the issue. I’m also on the latest firmware for everything including the adapter.

I’ve searched around and can’t find a specific solve. Hope you all can help!
Thanks!

EverDrive GBA / Re: GBA "x7" (Standard Size) to be released soon?

as old component hard to get or re-design of pcb
there are always newer models

But usually those newer models aren't renamed in such a way that it appears they have more features, when they actually don't.
They use new parts and might require different software. Reason enough to give them a new name as to not confuse customers (e.g. "use this file for ED64 before 2019, this file for ED64 after 2019") - a good opportunity to align the name to the current naming scheme.

I've never liked the official N64 controller, and when I realised that I wasn't going to get used to it, I went out and bought the third party controller that most looked like a more usual controller design, and I was extremely fortunate to get the Makopad 64. It is BY FAR the best joypad for the N64, much much better than the official one. That's just my opinion, of course, but I love the pad - it's laid out much better than the official pad, with every control accessible without moving your hands, is very responsive, and VERY reliable - I've had mine for over twenty years now, and it has been hammered by me for endless hours at Perfect Dark, Super Smash Bros., Goldeneye, etc, and yet is just as responsive now as it was when it was new. And since the analogue stick's shaft is metal (not plastic, unlike the official controller's) it doesn't wear away.

It comes in two versions; the Makopad 64 (otherwise known as MakoPad 64), which is transparent plastic, and an opaque black version, called the Super Pad 64. For a review of the Super Pad 64, see:

http://s9.zetaboards.com/Nintendo_64_Forever/topic/7186633/1

NOTE: there are two different controllers named the Super Pad 64. The one I recommend is the two-pronged, black one, the top right hand controller pad in the first photo on the page I link to above (which is a pure black version of the transparent one below).


Here's the transparent version of the Makopad 64







I really can't recommend this joypad enough, but of course if you want one then you'll almost certainly have to buy one used, since it's no doubt been out of production for more than a decade.

Thanks, guys. These were really thorough responses and helped with exactly what I wanted to know. I appreciate it.

As for the controllers, I'll look into the hori and the other one mentioned with the turbo. I hadn't even heard of them. I'll also save the info on replace parts and maybe stock up.

Kind of weird that you have to power off and on to store your save but that's just what I'll do I guess. This is THE COOLEST thing I've found in gaming so far. Beats the hell out of Mupen's crappy emulators lol.

EverDrive N8 / Re: Cannot get Shadowgate to load on N8

OK I resolved the issue by changing the mapper to 4 with https://www.romhacking.net/utilities/299/ in case anyone else searches and has this problem.

Update: When I go to ROM Info in the N8 menu it says mapper 68, but per the Krikzz forums this should be 4. Currently searching for ways to adjust this but not sure how. Opening in Windows emulator says mapper 4.

EverDrive N8 / Cannot get Shadowgate to load on N8
« Last post by mkontrov on October 19, 2019, 04:54 AM »
I have tried:

1) Multiple SD cards
2) Formatting said SD cards (FAT32)
3) Testing ROM in Windows Emulator
3) Multiple NESes
4) Acquiring ROM from different web sites

Nothing seems to work. All it does is load a grey screen. This is kind of driving me nuts. I noticed Demon Sword does something similar, though most games load fine. Any other ideas to try?
