Everdrive n8 rom support
« on: September 11, 2014, 11:20 PM »
So, I bought an official everdrive from the list just so I could play a 2 megabyte nes game. I am waiting for the everdrive to reach me, but I started to have concerns because both the chr and prg chips (not that I would know what they do) combined are less that 2 megabytes. Do you think it works?

BTW: The everdrive is gonna take at least 3 weeks to reach me. The game can be found right here: http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/other-consoles/nes/lei-dian-huang-bi-ka-qiu-chuan-shuo-nj046/                                                  The mapper is compatible, but I dont know if its compatible with the everdrive. Can someone test this???

this will not run. If you look at the specs page here: http://krikzz.com/index.php?route=product/product&product_id=59

2 x 512Kbyte SRAM for PRG and CHR data.

so that's 1mbyte combined, your file is 2mbytes so no luck.

Does the everdrive accept 2mbyte roms?
Here is the rom: http://www.theisozone.com/downloads/other-consoles/nes/lei-dian-huang-bi-ka-qiu-chuan-shuo-nj046/

Please, can someone test this rom?

Edit: I accidentally purchased a fake everdrive. It said that the game was totally compatible, but of course it didn't work. I wanted someone to verify that it worked for sure, and not count up kilobytes. I don't know how the nes or the everdrive works, so If you want to be helpful, please try it for yourself and post the results.

For the last time, no. 512 + 512 = 1024 or 1 mb
Everdrives I own: ED64, Mega Everdrive, EDGB, EDGG, N8, Master Everdrive

Other Flashcarts: SD2SNES

The answer was already posted in another thread, stop spamming. Your ROM will not work, and if you don't know about kilobytes and megabytes then I don't know what to tell you. That's computers 101.
