Well, my thread for the unnoficial compatibility list is always updated so it might be best to just link to that thread.

It's the only thread I ever made about the compatibility list. Here: http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=340.0

Krikzz can you add support for mapper 158? It's literally the same as 118 just they gave a single rom this number since it used a different asic. If you set the rom to 118 it works fine but if you use a proper header the game breaks.

By the way, SkinnyV, what is the story with Gauntlet? Is it mapper 206 or mapper 4? Someone said something about it having an issue similar to Rad Racer 2?

According to the "master" database it is 206 but it uses 4 screen mirroring like Rad Racer II

206 is just a modification of mapper 4 but Gauntlet is the only 206 mapper game that uses mirroring

Gauntlet does use mapper #206. The problem with it seem to be that the Everdrive doesn't handle 4-screen VRAM properly as of now (something easily fixed with an update).

SkinnyV, there is a hack for Rad Racer 2 that eliminates the 4-screen VRAM issue.  Could a similar hack be implemented for Gauntlet?

Cool temp solution for Rad Racer 2 but I wouldn't expect anything like that to be done to Gauntlet. In any case, it will be fixed with OS update soon.

Hey guys!

My NEs N8 everdrive arrived yesterday in perfect condition (thank you very much krikzz!)

However, I am having some issues with my castlevania (usa) rom: When playing, everything works perfectly, except for the stats, which wander from the right to the left side of the screen, then exit there and come back in on the right side?! thats kinda annoying, so i was wondering if some of you had the same troubles?!

thanks for helping!

He seem to refer to Castlevania 1, the third shouldn't even boot. As for the issue you are having, I would try to load another game and then reload Castlevania. I had weird issue with some game that went away after reloading and never showed again after.

Oops, my bad.
Yeah, if you try and boot Castlevania 3, you'll get a mapper not supported error. Sorry.

Hey thanks for your answers!

strangely, it works perfectly with the european version. I even experienced the same issues with kung fu (had a lot of glitches in the usa version) and battletoads (just got black after the intro): both european versions worked perfectly!

could it be, that it its better to use european roms if you play on a PAL nes? i thought it wouldn't matter if you use USA or European roms (at least it seemed so on my sd2snes)

cheers

Definitely use PAL rom if you are playing on a European nes. The console's timing are different and game can have graphical bug and anomaly when played at the wrong frequency.
