Thanks for pointing this out! Apparently he is the same guy who was working on Wolfenstein for N64. Hope he decides to finish both projects.

That's awesome and I'd love to play it. But I played a ported game once and it made the SD card stop working on the everdrive. I freaked out. But when I used another SD card it worked fine

Yeah he made great progress on Wolfenstein and now excellent progress on Doom. I just hope he keeps going though.

Heh, it is my most favorite game indeed. You'll catch me on Zandronum (multiplayer Doom source port) at almost any time of day.

That won't have been the game's fault. No software can damage an SD card, the SD card must just have died at that point in time. Hardware does die from time to time, especially now that (to keep prices down) electrical items (from SD cards to the large screen plasma TVs) have all sorts of corners cut in the manufacturing process.

Software can brick (cause to stop working permanently) a flash cartridge if the cartridge's firmware is stored on the flash cartridge itself, but since the Everdrive 64 v2 loads it's firmware from the SD card every time you boot up, the Everdrive 64 can't be bricked (well, v1 might be able to be bricked, since it doesn't load the firmware from the SD card).

Thats weird, unless the game you ran has access to the sd card while playing (libgbpak, ect.), it shouldnt have wiped your sd card out.

I got the impression from BolinCaker's post that the SD card was killed (i.e. would never work again at all) rather than just corrupted (which could be cured by reformatting it). Corruption can be caused by software, but no software can stop the card from ever working again.

Yea if it is totally unusable, then the sd card itself died as Kerr Avon said. Talk about ironic timing though.

I don't think that's the case because I still use that same SD card on my Super Everdrive and it works fine

i've tried the latest build, but it's not running fast enough and the sound is choppy.
there is still a lot of work to be done by the dev. :>
