Wow, Thank you soooo much KRIKzz! You seriously have made this one of the best continuously supported products out there.

The rumors that you personally kiss each one before mailing it must be true, there is a great deal of love here!  :P

Thanks again!

Thank you for this nice update!

Even though mapper 228 seems to be supported now, Action 52 is still not working  :(

Edit: I forget that Action 52 was too big and won't work.
But theoretically, since we got mapper 228 now, there could be a rom hack that divides the Action 52 rom into 2 separate rom files.

Anyone up for a challenge?  ;D

Awesome! Will all mappers that "not exist" be supported? They DO actually exist according to various sources, such as the source codes Nestopia UE, FCEUX, MAME/MESS, and also the NESdev wiki.

It would be a shame if these weren't supported.

Thanks so much for the awesome update!

The only game so far that I tried that doesn't seem to work for me is Holy Diver. Not sure if there's a specific place you would like us to put which games are having problems.

Seems like it might be an IREM issue, Kaiketsu Yanchamaru 2 and 3 are not working as well.

Edit: And nevermind, replacing the entire EDFC folder with the new one fixed everything.  :)

Cheetahmen II works!

Also, patched version of Cheetahman II works nice as well:

The extracted (and hacked) version of Cheetahmen 1 from Action 52, gave me glitched results.

Houston, we have a problem ... the FDS games don't work.

Edit. Delete the older EDFC folder from the Micro SD first and copy /paste the beta version.

Any chance that there is an improvement in how this runs on a Playchoice 10 with the NES cart adapter? I'm tired of my friends with the Powerpak lording that over me.

Very cool.  I'll have to give this a test.  Curious to see if the button combination to flip disks on FDS games made it in yet so that we could bypass the automatic flipping of sides and see full intros to FDS games.

Thank you very much Krikzz!
Fantastic job!

I don't see mapper 024 for VRC6 in the mapper folder; I used a custom 024 mapper by Slamy to change the volume balance.
Will it be possible to return mapper 024 or is it now part of another mapper and nothing can be done?

EDIT:

I get a lot of errors when navigating between folders, sometimes the menu text turns to garbage, this did not happen with OS v16.
Sometime the SD will not boot and freeze at the green screen.

ERROR:51
ERROR:58 (when 'select only' game)
ERROR:62 Disk IO error
ERROR:63 Disk IO error
"There are no files"

I've tried several other SD cards.

Thanks for the awesome update, KRIKzz!

No more artifacts on AVS! FDS definitely sounds much better now too.

Can someone please clear up something with the rom pack N8 (v.6)

It has a folder of "N8 v6\Unsupported Games - N8\Sort By - Mapper"
but only shows 5 folders,
Mapper 5
Mapper 37
Mapper 105
Mapper 159
Mapper 228


Only 228 was listed as an "unsupported mapper" on this pack. Does that mean the others are already integrated into the rom listing or were they never added to begin with?
