SMS Problem/Help
« on: November 11, 2012, 02:31 AM »
I've been having a problem playing any SMS files on my Everdrive MD, whenever I load one of them it just gives me a glitched, pixelated screen with the music just perfectly fine. The files play fine everywhere else, just not on the Everdrive MD and I don't know how to fix this problem.

                                                 Something like this: vvvvvvvvvv

Is it just one SMS game that does that, or do all SMS games do that?

What model Gen are you using?

Have you tried using another ROM set?

Both Fantasy Zone & Fantasy Zone II, I'm using the Everdrive MD on my JVC X'eye. Everything else works just fine, all but the SMS games.

I tried that and it still didn't work. Maybe it's the JVC X'eye itself that's the problem. I'm gonna use my model 2 Genesis on it later, then the model 1 Genesis and see if they can run SMS games without fail.

SMS games will not work on JVC X'eye cuz hard reset does not work on this system, so there is no way to switch VDP from genesis to SMS mode.

That's what I thought after I tested it on both models since it had finally played on them without any problems. I'm glad there's nothing wrong with the Everdrive MD now. Thank you.
