SD2SNES cannot load SuperFX Games with update 1.8.0
« on: July 07, 2018, 11:15 AM »
I've had an sd2snes I got from junfangames for a while now and it worked out fine, but attempting to load a SuperFX game upon updating it results in a black screen. Once I got a result where music played for Starfox on a black screen, but I've not been able to replicate it since.

So I tried running the diagnostics for the thing and got the following results.


TEST SUMMARY
============

flash check:   1000-1-33b04504-dfb09a7f-00-11-0 
Test      Result
----------------
SD        Passed
USB       not implemented
RTC       Passed
CIC       no run
FPGA      Passed
RAM       FAILED
SD DMA    Passed
CLK       Passed
DAC       not implemented
SNES IRQ  Passed
SNES RAM  Passed
SNES PA   Passed

I have no idea what exactly is going on with this one, as I'm able to run other games, just not the SuperFX ones.

Is that so? I read the warranty page and it mentioned that it covers those sold by dealers and junfangames is listed in that list. I'll try to contact junfangames then and see if he will respond. He hasn't done so from the last time I inquired about something else, so my hopes aren't that high. :(
Thanks for the info though.

It says "Made in China" beside the name of the dealer, and the cart costs half of what a genuine cart costs direct from Krikzz. It's safe to say that it's a cheap clone and reliability is going to be an issue. There's nothing that Krikzz can do for you, I'm afraid.

SuperFX is the first feature ever to use the second RAM on the sd2snes so some faulty units will only pop up now.
I guess in the detailed test log you will see that RAM0 test passes and RAM1 test fails.

Oooh, that explains why it otherwise works fine. Thanks for the explanation! I'll probably see to getting a replacement when I can, in the meantime this will have to do.
