I wish there was a Patreon as well, he deserves as much support as possible.

On last night's SGDQ stream it was announced that RedGuy's donating his bounty to charity.

So this update is the one to get now. anyone find any bugs that will get in my way. I have the fx firmware v10 and it's good. seems this one has the other fixes also.

I've had zero issues at all, it's safe to update.

Played some Star Fox and Yoshi's Island this morning, they play beautifully as far as I can tell.  Awesome work!

I played Star Fox and i got an issue on the ending. While the staff credits are rolling up the gfx gets out of sync with the song that is playing. On the original cart that i have the song ends exactly after the words THE END finishes its transition.

I'm using the no-intro rom: "Star Fox (USA) (Rev 2).sfc".

That's a knows timing issue.
The "name zooming" effect in the end credit sequence of StarFox is extremely heavy on the GSU (SuperFX) chip (yes the real one too) so the timing goes off by a few seconds over 3+ minutes of the end credits.

Same thing with Snes9x btw, it is not perfect either.
In fact Snes9x has the end credits lag MORE than on the SD2SNES.

Perfect timing is VERY hard to reach with emulation or on FPGA.
What Kevtris did with the SuperNT is far beyond simple, and does not apply to the special chips implementation of the SD2SNES.

The US version of Doom doesn't seem to work at all (the JP and EU versions works fine).
Everdrives owned: Everdrive GB (V1); Mega Everdrive V1; Everdrive N8; GBA Everdrive X5

Other: SD2SNES
