MD games doesn´t run, but SMS yes...
« on: October 02, 2012, 04:43 AM »
Hi, today arrives my package with my EverdriveMD unit, and I have problems on load games.

SMS games works fine, without any problems.

MD games doesn´t work, anyone..., I put the games on SD card, load from menu, when the finish to load game to everdrive memory and reset the console, just freeze, o black static screen...

anyone have the same problem? I have do something wrong? I tested with 20 games minimum...

thanks.

May be bad roms or not unzipped roms

my rom package works fine on PCemu, and the roms are zipped, I suspect of my SD card, but the same SD works my SMS games on Everdrive...

I don´t know what to do  :(

that's your problem right there: everdrive needs UNZIPPED roms in the SD card

really? why the everdrive load the game to memory if they are zipped  ???

whell, I don´t remember exactly if my SMS are zipped, but if I remember correctly they are zipped too...

so, when I come home after work I try with roms zipped and unzipped. If this is the problem, shame on me :-[

make sure all roms are in bin format aswell. krikzz made a tool which will convert all smd roms to bin just place it in your roms folder and run it.
