(Undocumented?) Compatibility Issue
« on: February 26, 2013, 09:36 AM »
I didn't notice a thread to report incompatibility issues.

Just running through my list of games here, I loaded Ai Sensei no Oshiete - Watashi no Hoshi. It doesn't start on the Everdrive, and I'm not sure why. On loading the game it's just a black screen.

File Info from the menu:
Mapper: 32
PRG Size: 16
CHR Size: 15
Memory: NO
Mirror: V

While it seems like an entirely throwaway title, I thought it might be worth mentioning. I tested this with the No-Intro rom. I couldn't tell if it's a header issue like the roms mentioned in this thread (which seem to boot for me just fine):

Also, this is a commercially released game by Irem in 1993, one that only caught my eye on a rom list since I knew it was rare.

I can confirm the issue, it take a long time at the Loading screen and then black screen. It is weird though as the CHR Size of that game is 16. But my rom got the correct CHR value in the header but still don't boot so it seem it is not just a problem with the header like other rom that refuse to boot on my Everdrive N8.

While this game not working is not a big loss (Hardcore Astrology in Japanese lol), the issue preventing it from working might be also causing problem in other games using the mapper so fixing it might fix other bugs that have yet to be found.
