Confirmed working in CLONES: FC Twin & Retron 1 (AKA RES)
« on: February 26, 2013, 08:03 AM »
I can confirm that this does work in the following clones:

(1) Yobo FC Twin
     * Uses a similar type of NOC to the FC3 Plus, Retro Duo, and Retron 3 (so those may also work)

(2) Hyperkin Retron 1
     * Internally identical to most versions of the Retro-bit RES

I had difficulty getting it to work in my real NES.
Note: However, I found that I was able to get the cart to play consistently by sticking a piece of cardboard underneath the cartridge. I don't have to do this for other cartridges, but once I get all of the games on the thing I should not be taking it out very often. This should save me the trouble of having to modify the console.

I removed my cartridge connector and placed it in container of boiling hot water for four minutes, took it out to cool off, then got the water boiling and did it again. Now it has no trouble playing the flash device. If I were to keep taking out and putting in cartridges it is likely it would warp again and stop working, but with the everdrive N8 I don't need to take the cart out.

Both the FC Twin and Retron 1 can be modified to improve compatibility.
