Which version of ED X7 is the newest?
« on: May 28, 2019, 03:01 PM »
Hi,

I want to buy ED X7, but now it's only available from dealers. They are selling different versions of X7 and I dont know which one is the most genuine (best revision). Can you help me?

Ever Drive GB (the third picture down), is not one of the X line. It's Krikkz's original GB Everdrive. It uses a different kind of memory and thus games upload into its memory at a much slower rate. It's somewhat closer to X5 in features though, as it does have instant saving, but no RTC or save states.

The second to last is the sticker Krikkz uses on the ones he sells directly and presumably through AMazon stores.

The last one is from Stone Age Gamers or the authorized US redistributor. You can't go wrong with Stone Age Gamers, they are authorized dealers, and defintely have access to the newest revisions (or will say otherwise, older revisions tend to be slightly less expensive than the newest).

Second picture looks to be original Everdrive GB, not part of hte X line (as I mentioned above) but through a German redistributor.


The first one is from Retro Towers, which is UK authorized redistributor I think. So they would be selling whatever is most up to date, or say should otherwise.

Thank you for the answer. Looks like the best option is version with black label (the second to last). It has info on back REV C, so the best one.

Yes, but if you are ordering, order from whichever distributor is closest to you, and their website should list revisions they sell as well. I really like Stone Age Gamers, because of the extra stuff they offer, and customization options. You also get a game pak of roms from Piko.

OK, thanks. I'm from Poland and funny is that my best choice is to order from Amazon (USA).

I haven't been checking recently but has Retrotowers or even Krikzz managed to fix the game menu screen on the latest revision of the EDGB X7?

For example the old EDGB used to freeze for a good 10 seconds using an official Smokemonster ordered rom set and would show case every game in the folder whever it was 100 to even over 300. So for example a directory that said GB USA A-Z when clicked on it would freeze for a few seconds then load up the folder which would show every game in it.

While the EDGB X7 was so quick on loading games up instantly without a process bar it accidentally ended up loading the folder up before the roms had time to display in the folder so what you would get would be a blank directory which would take around 10 seconds to load the list up... which I also think happened with other pages of roms too though it has been so long since I went back to use mine, I don't know now.

I think my X7 is a rev B IIRC. I've heard it has issues with Gameboy Player?

Which version had the issues with Gameboy Pocket?
