Off Topic / Re: GBA Everdrive
« on: August 18, 2014, 06:47 AM »
GBA flash carts are a saturated market - I don't blame KRIKzz for not having any interest in creating one. He may change his mind one day, but I see no need to keep posting about it like it's going to help. If anything, it probably just irritates him after he's already made his stance clear. As with anything else, only a fraction of those who say they plan to buy something ever actually do.

I know I'm new here and don't mean to get on anyone's bad side, but I don't see how threads like this getting bumped all the time help anything. Just like I'd love to see the possibility of a NGPC or MVS EverDrive some day, I'm not going to beat a dead horse when he's already made up his mind. I'd rather he keep on making excellent flash carts for systems with no decent alternative than one for which I could buy any number of existing flash carts at lower price points, some of which are actually good.

</rant>

The way I see it is most people who want things which already have a solution are either unsatisfied with what's currently available, or would rather support Krikzz than some Chinese manufacturer (not that I have any problem with the Chinese, or anyone for that matter).  There are a lot of factors to consider when Krikzz decides to make an Everdrive though.  Install base, competition, and of course preference, because honestly at the end of the day this isn't really about the money, though having monetary support makes what he does a lot easier.

You're right about threads like this getting bumped though, because it is glorified begging, and honestly speaking I feel quite bad myself for bumping this too.  Though I think the main thing I need to say is that you do have to consider those who wont post that will buy them, and for every poster begging for a flashcart for a system that wont buy one, there will be someone that does (it took me many months after lurking these forums to finally make an account and post.  Honestly speaking I tend to hate forums and what it brings out in people, this community is really one of the only ones that I somewhat participate in, at least in terms of places that involve usernames and a sense of "identity").  Whether or not there is a solution for a console already out there, I just want Krikzz to do what he enjoys and make new Everdrives for as long as he wants to.

Yeah, you should probably PM krikzz.

Also, you know you can press the print screen button and paste it in paint to get screenshots, right?

EverDrive GB / Re: everdrive gb clone on aliexpress

God, I remember reading that thread before I decided to register (it was about time anyways, as I already own 3 Everdrives and have a 4th on the way), and I was almost shocked to see that, but really there's not much you can do, such is life on the internet.  Then again with Poe's Law what can you really expect, for every person that is promoting this stuff for their own benefit, there's someone actually falling for it and believing it.  It's quite a shame really.

EverDrive GB / Re: everdrive gb clone on aliexpress

I see ED clones all the time in the related items section when looking for things on taobao, from what I've seen they have one for everything, so yeah, regardless of the ED you're getting I would only get one from one of the websites that Krikzz has listed and actually does business with.  Chinese sites like these should only be used when you can't find what you want elsewhere or when you're getting something that isn't heavily reliant on build quality.  Saving $20-$30 isn't worth it when you're investing in something that will be able to run pretty much any game you'd want to, because eventually something will happen to it and you'll end up spending more money than you would've in the first place.

Not to mention that Krikzz's support really can't be beat.

Edit:  Yes I realize that you're just warning people, just figured I'd offer some additional info for anyone who will potentially read this thread.

Off Topic / Re: If you buy a new EZ-Flash IV
« on: July 10, 2014, 05:46 PM »
The old M3 Light is probably the best flashcart for GBA even though you need to patch the roms. It's a slot 2 device and works in GBA as well. The only bad things with it that I know is:

*Roms needs to be patched with a special manager program.
*Up to 2GB SD cards only.
*You can't make a rom start when you turn on the GBA (needed for some GC linking games).
*The menu is ugly and slow as hell.

On the plus side it has RTC. For DS games the DS Perfect is probably better and there are even better alternatives now (DSTWO).


The problem with a GBA Everdrive is that now when you can get the EZ-FLASH again people might just buy that instead of everdrive. Unless Krikzz is willing to make an Everdrive with more features like has RTC that the EZ-FLASH IV doesn't have.

To my knowledge if you're looking for an M3 Perfect and don't mind having a bulkier cart, you should get the CF version, as it supports larger sizes.  I've heard of people using microSD to CF converters and managing to fit the entire library on it (which required 32GB, without removing duplicates).  Reason I know is I've spent quite awhile trying to find one for compatibility, honestly speaking I've had a hard time finding any that weren't at an exorbitant price, CF or not.  I still keep my eye open for them but honestly speaking a friend gave me his old EZ Flash IV for the cost of a lunch, so it's not really my main concern at this point.
