Best choice Everdrive for a Retron 3 console
« on: January 08, 2015, 01:21 AM »
I have a retron 3 (nes, snes, genesis) and want to get an everdrive for it. Being three different options on Drives which should I get an will it allow me to load all three game systems off one cart? Seems its just a menu system to deliver the rom to the console right?

Wrong, you will need a cart for each system. Everdrives are basically acts like a real cart for their respective system. So the everdrive MD is a 'real' genesis cart and the  super everdrive is a 'real' snes cart. You can't play snes games on a genesis and vice versa. Even if made some kind of board pin adapter it wouldn't be able to play the game.

You will need an ever drive for every system you will want to play.

Doesn't the n8 work on NOAC's?

On the Retron-3 of a friend, my Everdrive-MD worked, but the Mega-Everdrive from another friend of us, has not worked. So for Mega-Drive-Slot of your Retron-3, you would need an Everdrive-MD instead of a Mega-Everdrive. For the other two slots of the Retron-3 (NES/SNES), i have no experience if Everdrives works?
