As far as the 60Hz thing goes, the mod is trickier than say the one for Mega Drive, but you can pick up a Super Famicom very cheap on ebay from Japan. I got one for about £25 shipped recently, no yellowing. Can use your current pads, leads and a Mega Drive 1 power supply. (You don't really wanna play the import games without 60Hz, will run too slowly and have a squished picture.)

(Edit: got mine from this guy, he has tons )

Great, thanks.

OK I have a different question - if I buy the version with dsp emulation, is it still possible to disable that and use the t-connector with another cart that has a real dsp chip, as you can with the older non-dsp Super Everdrive?

1) Does the current SED use MicroSD or full-size?

2) For the DSP support, is it using an FPGA? And if so how does accuracy compare to using a real chip

3) Does Pilotwings correctly use the DSP1, or still DSP1B? (see this post)

I have some questions before I buy this, if that's ok :)

Does this new version use FPGA now instead of real chips, and if so, is there any difference or is the implementation really 100% exactly the same as a real chip?

And does Pilotwings use the correct DSP1, or still DSP1B? (see)

And lastly.. does this 2.3 use a MicroSD or the big SD that sticks out the top?

Hi Krikzz or anyone else...

I returned this to Retrotowers and he kindly gave me a refund, but I asked if he could test it on his Famicom -- and he says it's working.

So the problem is my end.

Any idea what would cause this? The Fami was purchased pre-AV modded from a shop in Japan, is there anything the modder could have done to cause it?

I've cleaned the slot contacts. I've got 15 original carts here that all work fine - but I do have a Chinese 150-in-1 pirate cart which also doesn't work (blank screen, not green screen). I had assumed the Chinese cart was faulty but now I'm wondering if there's a connection between that and the Everdrive issue. I don't have access to another Famicom, or even a NES, to test this on right now.

I bought the Fami just so I could use an Everdrive so this is quite annoying!

EverDrive N8 / New Everdrive N8 - Green screen + garbled graphics

Hi my N8 just arrived today (from RetroTowers, not from Krikzz).

It's showing a green screen for a couple of seconds, then garbled graphics.

This occurs every time, with no variation, reseating cleaning etc does nothing. Both with and without SD card installed.

Original Famicom hardware, all original carts work fine, the power adapter is the correct spec (original Sega Mega Drive model 1 rated up to 1200mA).


On searching I found someone else with the same issue:
It used to work fine. Lately i tried to use it but it shows a green screen for about 2 sec (blinking red led) an after that some scrambled garbage on the screen. I use it on a Famicom

Should I just return it to RetroTowers and order one from Krikzz instead?

I've been researching copy shops and looking for game box templates and so on - and came across a nice zip file of templates on deviantart from someone called NeoRame. It's a small internet.

Forgive me being nosey - you printed and cut them them too? It looks too perfect, you have professional machinery?

If that sort of quality is possible at home with a printer, some card and a knife then I'm amazed and I'm off to buy an inkjet printer :)

Great job either way, serious skill.
