Thanks again. I got confirmation from the RetroUSB folks that both the NES and Famicom slots support expansion audio so I ordered the NES N8. Can't wait to vaguely approximate my childhood.

@lee4 how do You know it will run on the system from the photo? This is the one with one of the cartridges included inside and running when there is no cartridge installed. I have this clone and unfortunately everdrive stay silent there, it even does not blink the diode. Tried more powerful power adapter and still nothing - have two other clones where blinking but not working everdrive started to work when You switch the power adapter having additional 9v200mA... On Pegasus even saves works, on another modern clone everything except saves.

PS:My handheld nes just arrived from Aliexpress and as supposed unfortunately everdrive blinks but does not work there - it seems 4xAAA batteries are not enough to power console and everdrive :-(

Nearly all NOACs won't even load the N8 at all. The rest will not load some games and might not support save states or expansion audio.

The only 2 clones worth your time are the AVS and NT Mini

I made a test with the noacs i have.

Alliexpress with hdmi, and remote wirelles controllers.

https://youtu.be/0wAGx-PV7c8

Firts version. Hdmi output recorted in sides, power supply by plug and hdmi always 16:9 (hdmi and rca simultaneos output).led is red. And have 88 games in memory.

-everdrive n8 boots and run games.
-save states not work.
-expansion audio works.(hey the noac is crap in some sound but works XD).

Same console, but revision two. It have 4/3 16/9 selector, power supply with mini usb, led blue, and not output simultaneosly rca and hdmi with the same 88 games in memory.

Everdrive n8 not boot(black screen).

Subor d99 (with deteachable pads).

-everdrive n8 boot and run games
-no expansion sound.
-no save states

Subor d99(with wired pads).


Same as de subor normal.

Pending snes retrobit adapter.

No noac umc chips nevir nvr-vi

-Everdrive n8 boot and load games.
-save states work
-expansion sound work at least in 60 pin port.(but sound in lagrange is a little low). The retrotoad adapter to 72pin in the nevir 72 pin port not sound the expansion sound. But probably was the 60 72 pin adapter.

I add the compatibility of the snes adapters:

Columbus circle nes/famicom snes adapters:

I tested the famicom with the n8 and black screen,not light in the everdrive.
I tested the nes  with the n8+retrotoad 72 pin-60 pin adapter, and same, black screen.

Retroport+yellow 60 pins sold in alliexpress.

Same test method, it boot in the two, but is unestable, games can freezee at any time, for example super mario bros freeze in the first subterranean level, or indiana jones temple of doom freeze when you start the game.

So  unfortunly not appear a clone is compatible with everdrive in the snes.

Hi,

I have an FC COMPACT (with a 500-in-1 built-in games and a power supply of 1000mA) and I'm interested in buying an Everdrive N8. I wonder if someone here tested recently the Everdrive N8 with the current firmware on that famiclone, and its experience on that. I've seen this video:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0i99FyPaL0s

and it seems that it works relatively well (the only difference is that the guy uses a NES version and a a 72-to-60 pin adaptor, and it wasn't easy for him to put the cartridge in balance).

Thanks!

Hi. I DO NOT own FC COMPACT, so my opinion might be somewhat inaccurate or even wrong.
BUT my previous experience with other chinese NoaC clones (like Simbas's for example) says that Everdrive N8 usually works on those WITHOUT built-in games. And does not work on those with built-in games.
So, before relying on someone's opinion on the Internet, make sure that people had a good experience not just with a similary named system, but that mentioned system has built-in games as well.

Thanks for the answer Alchemist  :D

I recently bought an EDN8 and I'm waiting for the mail to arrive. I hope it'll work on my clone  :o . Anyways, I'm still doing research and I found that some guy (called Ace) explains the problem on some famiclones:

https://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=3001.5

Up to what I understand, some clones have a NOAC VT03 (like the one in the picture above) which comes with a feature called Onebus. This feature gives some additional capabilities (used by some recent multicarts), but it leads to incompatibility with certain cartdridges, N8 being one of them. The guy claims that Onebus can be disabled by cutting pins 48 and 49 from the socket, and shortcircuiting pin 49 to the ground.

Someone here has tested that solution?

Another guy also commented that by using an NES-N8 + 72-to-60 adapter may work since the adapter somehow disables Onebus:

https://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=5038.0

and I speculate that this is what happen in the video I've posted above. The bad news is that this solution may disable other features such as savestates.

I wonder if by using a famicom-N8 + 60-to-72 adapter + 72-to-60 adapter would work also (I would call it a Famicom-to-Famiclone adapter :P )

I purchased an everdrive N8 last week.    I haven't had any issue playing on my NOAC based clone with real cartridges.   Any issues I should watch out for or things I would be be able to do?
I apologize for necroing an old thread, but I got the expansion audio to work just fine on a Retron 1 and a Retro Duo. Ace explained to me how to do it. However, this did require some soldering. The FC Twin supported the expansion sound by default. The expansion sound is a bit off-key on the Retro Duo, however. It is the 2007 to 2011 model.  No idea how you would enable it on the NOAC carts that allow the SNES to play NES though.
