Gamecube Gameboy Player Problem
« on: January 16, 2019, 01:11 AM »
Hello. I recently got my Everdrive GBA today. It works fine on my GBA Handhelds ( Micro & SP ) as well as my DS Lite.
I tried playing it on my Gameboy Player and I had issues. ( I have a UK/PAL Gamecube if this helps at all pin-point the issue. )

I tried playing Pokemon Emerald however is crashes just before or on the title screen and makes a very loud crackling sound.
I don't know whether this is an issue with these types of games or an issue with the Everdrive GBA and its compatibility with the Gameboy Player.

I only ask here for advice/help as it works fine on the handhelds just not the player. Any suggestions? I thought it might have something to do with the SD Card I am using but I tried on two and likewise they work fine on the handhelds.

Any suggestions or info would be appreciated. Thanks.  :)

If your Gamecube is chipped you can try using the Gameboy Interface
And so I go fast.

It's not chipped sadly. I was thinking though it could be the SD Card as it is fairly old.
However with it working on the handhelds I don't think the SD Card is actually the issue. Its very confusing.  :-\

Have you tried original cartridges on the Gameboy Player, do they work fine?

It plays original cartridges just fine. I did more testing with other games like Super Mario Advance to which I managed to play it but a white screen when entering a door to another level.
I think it might be the SD Card as I checked and its about 10 years old. I should definitely try another SD Card before thinking its something wrong with the actual Everdrive.

Here is an update on the situation. I got myself a SanDisk Micro SD Card (32GB). I formatted it using a tool that was not a Windows Built in tool due to seeing that they don't do a perfect job at formatting all of the card. Anyways I booted up the EverDrive again and some issues were resolved.

First off I noticed a much faster time with loading games and the initial booting up. I had no errors or crashes when playing Super Mario Advance which was a good sign.

It does seem though that the Pokemon Games still crash on the Player but not on the handhelds.

With doing more research I saw that the Pokemon ROMS need to be clean and preferably "no-intro" ROMS. I managed to find one of these for Pokemon Emerald so I hope this alleviates the issue I have been having.

Just plugged mine to see if I had the same issue, but it runs the game smoothly on the GB Player, even a romhack of Pokémon Red runs perfect, maybe it's your Emerald rom

Speaking of Gameboy Player... how well does it run pre-installed emulators such as Goomba and PocketNES if at all possible PCEAdvance though there is still no confirmation how the device can run RAW PCE games without the pre-made ones in Smokemonsters latest pack.
