Everdrive X5 mini won't work on Gameboy Player?
« on: July 22, 2021, 07:59 AM »
I just got a Everdrive X5 Mini and it will not work on my gameboy player but normal carts do work.  I'm using a GCLoader and booting it through GBI.  All I get is a white screen when i use the Everdrive X5.  The X5 does work in a standard GBA though.  Any help would be appreciated.

It's a Model 19, Rev.B, 20.02.2020

I have the normal X5 not the mini and it works with the GBPlayer. I think the mini should work too or there is something wrong with your Everdrive.

Do you play using the GBI software through the GC Loader?

It works, I got one.

I use GBAOS-v1.15 on the everdrive x5 mini.

On the gamecube, I use swiss r1047 at the moment with gameboy interface gbi-20210206.

Sometimes, gameboy interface stays blank on first load. Just press reset on the gamecube then it will works.

If you load the official Game Boy Player Start-Up Disc (USA) (Rev 3) iso from swiss, what is the result?

It works for me everytime.

The instructions for the GC Loader are :

GC Loader with Swiss
Install the GC Loader.
Obtain an SDHC/SDXC Card (≥4 GB).
Format the SDHC/SDXC Card as FAT32.
Extract the main package to the root directory of the SDHC/SDXC Card. Do not extract to gbi-YYYYMMDD.
(Optional) Merge GBI/ from the extra package with GBI/ on the SDHC/SDXC Card.
Copy GCLoader/boot.iso from the Swiss release to the root directory of the SDHC/SDXC Card.
Important: GBI/, MCBACKUP/ and boot.iso must reside in the root directory.
Note: An SD Card Adapter is required for writing. Some features won't be available. exFAT is not supported.

Regards,

Brad

Mine worked both with the official Start-Up Disc (the physical disc not ISO) and with GBI. It was many years ago I played it, so I haven't tried the latest version of GBI.

The start up disk was the whole reason why I never invested into the X5 back then for GBA, it had so many complex needs that were too much to handle, the dozens of reusable boarders on the original SGB that could work on any game was what made me choose the latter choice... I still like the GBA X5 these days but it feels so lack luster likely due to the fact my GB player experience was bad.

The GBPlayer is mainly for GBA games. It's also nice for GBC games since the SGB doesn't have a GBC mode.
