Is there a 3.2 firmware file available anywhere?  I might have one that needs a reflash.

That should be all of them, don't recall how you can flash it over the parallel port these days though.

Thanks.  I'm trying to fix a laptop that has a parallel port.  So I'm hoping I can fix it.  It shows a letter L on the display and I'm not sure what that means, most of the time its a number 8.

I found a v3.3 that was a bin file.  Do you think the extension matters?

If it's bricked you can't flash it with the parallel port, the only ways to reflash them currently is to stack it with a second working Gameshark, remove the flash chips and flash it manually with a programmer, or use Sanni's cart reader to reflash it (experimental). If it was switched to another key code the last time it was booted, it needs a retail cart with the matching CIC chip to boot it.

I have a working version of the rom on my everdrive. Someone gave me the rom and I tried everything to make it work. Finally someone told me to “unbyteswap” it, then it worked. I’m not sure if I can simply upload the rom, but if anyone would like me to try, I’m happy to do so

Edit: I’m pretty certain it will work, I uploaded it for someone a while ago and he didn’t say it didn’t work. 🤟

Ill check it out. Is it v3.2? If you upgrade a v3.2 to v3.3 Does the parallel port stop working? Ill try flashing it with parallel port.

The archive I linked should contain all the known Gameshark roms, but if you can't boot it (like with the "L" or "8" that doesn't go away) you won't be able to flash it through the Parallel port. The parallel port works just fine on the v3.3 rom, but it's only active when the device is fully booted.

The gamesharks start up but all the options are greyed out but you can still start the game.  On the game creator software it just locks up when I click ram then says lost connection but it recognizes its plugged

I got the free pack from StoneAge Gamers that comes with the rom for 40 Winks from Piko. Looks like its early version they worked with without the Piko Interactive flash screen.

That is actually very interesting.  Would you be able to post hash info for 40 Winks and the others?  Do any of the ROMs have the Piko intro?

That just sounds like the PAL proto release...

Yes I've seen the actual Piko NTSC 40 Winks cart in action (and I've also seen the rom they dumped from that cart in action too on their Everdrive 3.0). It has the publisher splash screen.

The rom with US Stone Age Gamers store doesn't however. I'd definitely try to run a hash on it if you someone can walk me through step by step what to do?

No idea...

As far as I know Piko worked with two versions both a pal release one from a later date than those readily available on the internet, and another that was NTSC. So I don't know if this is one of those two, or some kind of beta from after they modified the game but before they put the splash screen on it it or not.l
