Krikzz, thank you so much for the update! RC8 finally works on my Famicom N8 with my modded 60 to 72 pin adapter!
I did notice that I still get IO errors occasionally after I reset from FDS games, but the fact that I can actually play games on RC8 and hear the improved FDS audio is worth the minor inconvenience.

I wonder if IO errors never happens with v16 on your setup?

I never got IO errors on v16. I did some further testing on RC8 and haven't been able to reproduce the problem again yet, so it might just be a very infrequent issue with my setup. I'll make sure to try another SD card just in case, but as far as I know, the IO errors on my end with RC8 were just minor hiccups within the file browser.

Hi there! Thanks for the update! tried rc8 on my PAL original NES and can't get back to menu with reset.
I've been stuck with OS v15 because is the latest which doesn't reset MegaMan 2 after a while.
Only thing missing is graphic bugfix on Castlevania III "sunken city stage" repaired from rc3 on.

Stuck with "OS init..."  after reset?

I did a very brief test with some problem games I've had after RC3. Batman didn't freeze up, which is a good sign. Neither did Ultima IV display the tearing I was seeing on the naming screen. Shinsenden still doesn't display text in the opening (freezes up), but I'm still unsure of whether that's a mapper issue or a translation hack issue.

I'm going to keep my other stable card intact, however, as I test further when I get a chance. Thanks for your work, KRIKzz, it's much appreciated.

For me this new rc8 is far more stable than any other released before.
From cold boot I only got IO error once, switching between error 63 and error fifty something, I don't remember.

There's a bug in game genie system.
Some codes that used to work are no longer working.
This only happens to some games not all of them.
For example:
Invincibility (ESST-GTEY) for Castlevania (USA) (Rev A).
Invincibility (ESUA-GAEY) for Mega Man 3 (USA)
Invincibility (APEP-NZAL) for Batman - The Video Game (USA)
Invincibility (ATOP-EZVG) for Batman (Japan)
Invincibility (ESUA-GAEY) for Mega Man 3 (USA)

Game Genie code that I've tested and working:
Ninja Gaiden (USA)
BurgerTime (USA)

THANKS for the update, Krikzz.

Is there anyone who has IO problems with beta/rc OS? I was able to reproduce this problem using original analogue nt and fixed it. Also i included some mappers and fixes from N8-PRO mapper pack. Please try this build: http://krikzz.com/pub/support/var/rc/N8/nesos-v1.20-rc8.zip
Original N8 OS naming convention was changed to make clear differentiation between PRO and OG N8 OS. OG N8 OS is 1.xx and PRO is 2.xx

This is really awesome! Thanks so much for persevering with this Igor. This has resolved all of my issues and my N8 now works on my PAL NES (with the 60-72 pin adapter), it no longer gets stuck on "OS Init...." and is also working flawlessly in my AV Famicom and I am able to use it on both. I personally feel this is now close to being ready for release. I resolved the other intermittent IO issues by swapping the SD card out for an older 2GB type which was not SDHC example here. As the entire NES and Famicom library is just over 500mb, so there is no real need for a large SD card!

The only issue I noticed is the PAL NES does not return to menu when you press reset, I have to switch it off and on again but so happy this is finally resolved   ;D

Merry Christmas !

Okay, so I updated to 1.20, and as usually, got the dumb blue screen.  That means i had to reformat my SD card and load all the roms up again (arghhhh).

Anyway, so idk what compatibility was actually increased on this update?  The non-working NES and FDS games are still not working.  Action 52 for instance, which is mapper 228.  Unless I'm missing something.  I'm still not getting music in VRC7.

Did you mean the split hack of action 52? Otherwise it won't load. VRC7 has always worked(well, since necronomfive added support) , which famicom version are you using? Check the volume slider for special chips too. Good luck to you.

Ohhhhh, the split hack, gotcha!  I'm using an NES, not a Fami, but it's got the Famicom audio mod installed, FWIW.   I'm simply going by the old Smokemonster rom categories in what I was testing out after reloading the SD card.

I can’t get game genie codes to work either on 1.20 final release.  I just checked it on my av famicom
