How to load ROMS having an issue... need help :(
« on: June 29, 2014, 03:17 AM »
Hi all first time post here for me.

Just got my Everdrive GB after being ultra ltr happy with my Everdrive MD.

I have downloaded a set of roms says it is complete anyway.

when I load I get 86 pages to go through which only takes me to letter M.

I Downloaded ROM's from A-Z just wondering how all roms after M can go missing.

Not sure what is going on just want to see how to sort the roms on the SD card.

Thanks in advance.

Did you put them all in one folder? The EDGB can really only have about 200 files (roms) in one folder before you start to see slowdown, errors, garbled text, unaccessibility, ect. Try organizing them in different folders to sustain the whole romset without said problems.

The EDGB is a flash cart, meaning that the game that was previously flashed (zoop, Krikzz loaded that rom to test it before sending it to you) will still be in the data of the cart, even without the sd card.

PM pictures of your EDGB setup if you can (root folder, subfolders, files) so I can determine if it is set up properly or not :).

Ok is this an issue as to why my ROMS are not loading fully?

Before I loaded the SD card it had the Vectrex Screen with the animated balls.

Yea unless you loaded zoops last that is a weird issue (try loading another game then doing the same). So you are pressing b to select and start these games? Maybe you could also use a file organizer to re-alphabetize the files, for when you add new files the EDGB doesnt auto re-alphabetized.

You have too many roms in one place. Sort them and make folders A, B, C, etc. Copy ROMs starting with A to A folder, B to B folder, etc
