I see but also the EDMDv2 has megakey support after PCB 2.4

I understand you don't care but your statement was:
"No mega key on everdrive md, only mega everdrive"
which is just not true in general.

So told I understand you want the code because your EDMD does not have support for Megakey. Sure.

I have the same problem with my recently purchased EverDrive MD.  It does not have Mega Key support when I go to the Toolbox/Device Info.  The seller indicated it is at least v2, and the pdf user manual included with the flash cart says PCB revision v2.4, which is supposed to have Mega Key support.

Does anyone know how to tell which PCB revision my particular EDMD has?

What does this mean if I want to play region locked games?  Do I have to use the Mega Key adaptor in conjunction with the EDMD?

Hello!
Sorry if this question is asked yet, but I didn't find anything about.
I've just bought an Everdrive for my Japanese MegaDrive. I tried asap to play the USA version of Shining Force and... it didn't work 'cause of the region lock. I was thinking this problem would be avoided with the flashcart but well... seems like not. :/
Same thing with some other region locked games (like Mega Turrican) but not everything else (PAL Earthworm Jim or Vectorman work, but my original cartridges don't, anyway maybe they're just different dumps or don't know what, but it's not important). Is there a way to solve that? Something like bypass the japan bios or whatever?

all you need to do is to go to options and turn mega key off.

assuming you are using Mega Ever Drive.

I use a Japanese hardware and by turning mega key off ALL roms from ALL regions work perfectly.

it's a shame there is no guide out there mentioning such important option.
