page 18 he gave a heads up. Fixed most of the problems. I hear he tested everything with a scope so everything is more effecacant. It's been awile I understans. I hope it's well worth the wait. I am still baffled that FW 14 is so popular. So all the firmwares after that aren't that good?
Krikkz "Work in progress (: Seems like we fixed fds, this time were made test program and it were tested with oscilloscope, waves forms matches to original fds. Also few more new mappers were included and some other was fixed. I think that final release will be ready in 3-4 weeks"

that was many weeks ago(June 18, 2018). Whatever it's coming, just have to wait, better to have something very stable then a mess. Can't wait to put my n8 cart in my avs and see what I can play now. Lets hope the internet doesn't shut down.

It is the firmware that comes on the chinese clone from Aliexpress.
Every time you hear about OS v14 from a new user or HI/LO question, they have a chinese clone since all official carts from KRIKzz come with the latest firmware.

when we'll see finally NSF support on the everdrive? I'm asking this from years. The powerpack cart have it from ages.

There's no other way to play nsf with everdrive?

If you don't plan to start any FDS game just right away, I would wait until the official release.

For some reason, I am unable to run beta v20 1 or 2. I tried with 3 different sd cards (sandisk and transcend brand), which all work with OSv16, with either 4Kb or 32kB FAT32 format, and I get stuck at " OS init...4 " or " OS init...3 " or " OS init... 1 " and sometimes " io error 62 ". I have tried this on 3 different systems also: original US frontloader, hidef nes toploader and nesrgb frontloader, all with same results. I have not once gotten to the file manager screen. Am I the only one?

No you are not the only one @matjolic.
Krikzz says he can't reproduce this, so he probably will not fix this...  :-X
But I may be totally wrong and he already fixed that in the next release.

I got this initially with almost every update until I deleted the directory and unzipped the files to a directory on the hard drive before copying them over. The OS is way too sensitive to fragmentation, which is especially awkward for SD cards.

I cant get v16 or either of the v20 versions to load.  v15 loads without any issues.

I've tried new sd cards, trying without a roms folder, nothing seems to be working.

OS INIT 4 is what I'm getting every time.

Can anyone clarify the sound volume issue debate?? What are the games where the difference sounds the most obvious and which OS firmware does it reproduce?? I have both the Famicom Classic and Famicom AV, even some RGB modded consoles so I'm curious to test the differences myself and probably report the outcome

Get everyone excited and now nothing?    Seems like it's been abandoned?
