Mega EverDrive / VA6 Genesis - X3 Freezing Issues
« on: April 28, 2019, 02:12 PM »
Hey Guys!

Another report of this issue. Earthworm Jim freezes at the beginning of the first level with my Genesis but not on my friends Genesis. I also have the issues with Street Fighter II mentioned in other threads.

Digging through the forum I found a handful of people reporting this exact set of issues and it being related to the VA6. (Or one variety of the VA6 at least)

Can this be fixed in an OS update?
Why is this happening?
What more obscure games might be affected that no one has found yet?
Can I patch these ROMs/is there anything I can do in the meantime?

I just bought a Super EverDrive from Stone Age Gamer Yesterday.

Whenever I turn power on and off I get the “Settings reset to default push any key to continue” message and it removes whatever game and save was in memory. It should not do this every time I power on correct?

I tried 2 different new 2032 batteries and reformatted the SD card and redownloaded OS.

Is there anything else I can try without having to send it back for repair?

EDIT: After looking at the back of where the battery holder attaches the solder points have no solder is visible. In pictures these areas appear populated. Perhaps a connection is not getting made that needs to happen at the front and back? I can add a dab of solder if that may help? Don’t want to void a warranty though...
