The progress looks very, very promising. I mean, I've been there since the Everdrive-MD days and this looks like a perfectly done product. I'm loving it so far and can't wait for it to be done.

Guys it's happening!!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2kwrz3fW_yE&feature=youtu.be  GBA Everdrive RTC testing. I think the GBA everdrive is going to be a complete product from the start, this is amazing.  :D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D ;D

While i Do appreciate that krikzzz is implementing RTC, I hope he will allow for a cheaper version without it like he does with the everdrive 64. For me, having an rtc that eats te battery s something i'd rather not have, for my uses the RTC has too little purpose.

the batteries on everdrives are easily replaceable though. Thank you for adding RTC Krikzz!

Nah, i am talking about the on board battery running dry a lot faster with a RTC enabled. My Gameboy Pokemon games (blue and yellow) hold their gamesaves to this day, whereas my Pokemon gold and crystal versions lose their save instantly.

I just feel that the RTC has not enough payoff for me that I'd consider accepting the drawbacks. But, krikzzz could just offer two different versions of the EDGBA, one with RTC and one without for $20 cheaper. He currently does with the ED64 (Ver 2.5 vs Ver 3) so he could probably do it for the GBA as well. Definitely not saying he should drop it altogether, though.

Darn. If only these circle batteries can be recharged using the handheld systems of... well, GBASP at least, if DS cannot accept this upcoming invention.

Or perhaps a feature to turn the RTC functionality off?

The battery can be bought at walmart for like $2 and can be easily replaced by popping the old one out and popping the new one in. And you may have to change it every 10-15 years. I dont see why that would be a big concern for anyone.

Yeah that is what I was thinking too. Never heard of an RTC draining these batteries that quickly.

@Localhorst86 Sounds like your carts might have had defective batteries, since I just checked my Pokemon Crystal and it still has it's save data from over 10 years ago...

it's actually quite common for gold and silver batteries to be dead but they are also 15+ years old which is the average life span for the batteries.

Try to guess a new everdrive instead of an update of actual everdrive:
- atari 2600, lynx or jaguar everdrive
- nds, 3ds , 3ds xl, new 3ds everdrive
- turboeverdrive update could read arcade games pc engine and isos backup cds pc engine cd rom, cd rom 2, super cd rom

The 2600 has the harmony cart thats the difinative one (7800 one is on its way)
Lnyx has one
Jag has nothing you can buy that does the same job
NDS/3DS/XL are to recent and have something LAW SUITS WILL HAPPEN!

What flashcart for the Lynx are you referring to?  The only one I'm aware of was similar to the skunkboard for the Jaguar (only one game at a time and no longer in production).  If you have a link for something available for the Lynx, I might be interested.
Maybe, just once, someone will call me "sir" without adding, "you're making a scene."
