Wanted to know what to do on first boot of SD2SNES
« on: October 06, 2016, 03:51 AM »
Hi,

Just ordered a SD2SNES and waiting that it arrives. By reading forums and the web I can't seem to find my answers:

Once I receive the cart: If it boot it with an empty formated SD, will the SD2SNES boot up? I imagine the cart must a frimware installed already right?
My plan B was to upgrade right away to 0.1.7d and extract that in the SD2SNES folder on the SD.

The reason im asking that is that i wanted to try a few a games before doing any firmware update and was wondering if the cart would boot with an SD that doesnt contain a SD2SNES folder.

Thank you

The cart won't boot without an SD card and/or firmware folder.
The firmware is always loaded from the SD card when the console is turned on.

download this,extract in the root of your sdcard.
now make a rom folder and test a few games before you copy the entire game library for snes on it.
there is also a rompack on emuparadise,but its on mega,wich now have limits for downloading.
