Mega Everdrive X7 Ingame Reset - Mega SG
« on: March 25, 2019, 08:06 PM »
Hello everyone,

I received the Mega SG (beautiful), the ingame menu does not work anymore! I even changed the hotkey of the SG and the same.

Thanks,
Daniel.

I have a V1 Mega Everdrive and I couldn't get the ingame menu to work either on Mega Sg as well. Assumed it was cause of an older release but guess not if you can't either on an X7. Also tried changing the hotkey and even turning on Passthrough mode for controller but nothing.

Damn, guess I was right then about it being an older release. I already updated the firmware to 4.2 when I first got it. I may have to get an X7 at some point then if it's not working with V1 Mega Everdrive cause I use save states quite a lot with some rom hacks.

Doesn't work for me either. For everybody who sees this thread, please report whatever information you know about your setup to help figure out what's needed to get it to work.

Here's my info:
-Mega Everdrive X7 (received a month ago directly from krikzz)
-Mega Everdrive OS = MEGAOS-V3_07 downloaded from krikzz support
-Sega Sg firmware = tried both stock firmware (said to be v3.8) as well as the only other firmware available (v4.2)
-tried disabling shortcuts to avoid conflict and full buffer setting on Mega Sg, no luck
-Menu confirmed working on original Genesis hardware

A work around using the Mega SG is to simply go into it's menu and select "run cartridge" which then has basically the same effect as the Mega Everdrive's in game reset.  :P

If any of you meant to say that the Mega SG's menu is no longer working/coming up for you then well this isn't really an ideal work around but if you have the new 8bitdo Sega Genesis controllers they come with a dedicated Mega SG menu button that could potentially bring it up for you if the hotkeys don't work.
krikzz products I own: SD2SNES, Joyzz, Everdrive GB X7, Everdrive GBA X5, Mega Everdrive X7, Everdrive 64 v3, Everdrive N8, Turbo Everdrive v2, Master Everdrive X7.

Hi @dani31, the topic title is misleading as it suggests that the issue is just merely being able to reset the game. The real issue is not being able to use the X7 save state feature at all. Can you change the title to be "Mega Everdrive X7 Ingame Menu with Save States - Mega SG"? And I'm still waiting on people who got the X7 to work to give the EverDrive OS version that actually works.

I've been using my Mega EverDrive X7 OS v3.07  on the Mega Sg and it's working flawlessly.  Save States working great.  A few games here and there glitch, but most work perfect.

Thank you @Oldin Belmont for confirming the OS. I tried again and got the save state feature to work in-game on the Mega Sg!  :) The main thing I didn't realize (and others may not as well) is that the save state feature may only work during certain sections of some games, which threw off my testing. This fact is also true for the Game Boy EverDrive models with the save state feature. So if you find it not working, try a different game or make sure you are trying to access the menu during gameplay and not on non-gameplay screens.

Hopefully the information helps somebody who also doesn't realize the limitations of the save state feature (beyond just the audio issues and glitches that can occur in some games).

I know this is a bit of an old thread but was there any update to this issue? I've got a Mega Everdrive V1 and can't use in game menu on the Mega SG, wondering if there is something I need to do to get it working or does it just flat out not work?

See my post above yours. Make sure you are using the latest EverDrive firmware, make sure you setup the shortcut in the options, and make sure you try a variety of games at different points of the gameplay. The in-game menu won't work for certain games and for certain screens.
