Darn he left the audio pin disconnected.  It looks flash based, I guess that's to save on battery power since loading every time would add to the draw.

Looks like the battery backed RAM could include an RTC. Will have to wait and see.

Omitting the audio pin does seem like a missed opportunity, though would only be mono anyway:

I had trouble finding any lists of what games uses what mappers, but at least seven MBC3 games uses RTC, probably more. There are at least another eight MBC3 games and they also most likely use RTC. There are probably more RTC games than for any other console, except maybe for GBA.

Some of the Pokemon games (Gold/Silver I thinik?) have RTC on it. There's a really small handful of games that had used a RTC.

As for expansion audio/special sound chips...not sure if there was any.

The Nanoloop cart uses external audio but no games ever did. Pokemon Gold, Silver and Crystal have an RTC and I'm pretty sure they're the only ones that had one.

i would prefer to pay whatever extra it would cost to have the rtc function if possible. i know the lack of rtc function for some GBA flash carts supposed to be a pain. would adding the rtc funtion add much to the GB/GBC Everdrive manufacturing cost?
