Impossible to reset Mega everdrive x5
« on: May 06, 2021, 11:05 AM »
Hello everyone,

i just got my Mega everdrive x5 a couple of days ago but i only had the time to set it up today.

I managed to set it up correctly and tried a couple of genesis games and they all worked fine i'm very happy with it.
However, i tried also one SMS game in this case bubble bobble but now the console's reset button seems to not be clearing the ram of the card instead just booting me back to the game every time so i believe i am stuck without access to the x5 menu.

Am i missing something? I'm pretty sure there should be a way to reset to menu.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: After some tinkering, by deleting the registry.dat file in the SD card, i can choose a different game albeit with a constant "Press A to choose the rom" message popping up on my screen.
Genesis games seem to do the same thing, they boot directly back into the game even if i reset through the button on the card.

Please disregard, it turns out my controller had an issue holding down the A button so after reset it would just automatically choose the game again.

Everything works as intended now.
