Update 15 (12 Nov. 16) Can't open ROMS
« on: November 12, 2016, 07:27 PM »
Alright, so I was messing with my ED n8 NES (On a stock front-loading NES). I wanted to change the SD card to something more akin to the size of the NES library I have loaded on it. While doing this I decided to check for an OS update. Lo and behold, there's a new one available just today! I load it up along with my ROMs.

I go to play something, I hit "select + start" and... "Loading . . . "

It just sits there...

Thinking it might be a problem with the SD card, I use the old one. Same issue. I do a quick format in Windows, load up the new files...same issue. Full format in Windows...same issue.

Pulling my hair out, I reboot the system again and try to run the on-board diagnostics. Now, I have an older Everdrive which doesn't have the diagnostics so, when I pressed start on the controller, the game I originally wanted to test with loaded perfectly. I rebooted again...it worked again. I tried a different game but it got stuck at the loading screen. Rebooted again, pressed the start button on the controller and the game worked.

I went back to OS14...and its working with no issues.

So it would appear there is a possible bug with OS15? My EverDrive n8 NES is legit purchased directly from this website shortly after it was released.

Here's ED information:
Bios: 4
CPLD: 1
Adate: 17.05.13
Atime: 20:10

Rename the current EDFC folder (example: old-edfc).
Add a 20-30MB random file to the root directory to clear up fragmentation.
Paste new OS v15 EDFC folder to root directory.
Erase random file and old edfc folder.

Test again.

Some games won't open with OS v15 anymore like unlicensed Street Fighter games. It sais Mapper not supported but I remember I was able to play those games before the OS update.
Then I noticed that some games like Bucky O-Hare randomly freeze in game. Why could that happen? I didn't notice it untill the OS Update v15 .

Maybe someone has an idea or the same issues?
