Save files for Goldeneye and Ocarina of time disappear?
« on: April 29, 2021, 03:13 PM »
Hey all, I've done some research in regards to the Everdrive 64 x7, but haven't come up with anything substantial. I think my everdrive came with a paper manual, but I can't find it. It seems my goldeneye and ocarina of time saves disappeared?? Can someone please help me with this? Thanks

Edit: The save types for each were EEP64K for goldeneye, and SRAM for OOT I'm pretty sure

What happened exactly? The save files just disappeared from the SD card one day?

Hey nuu, thanks for replying!

I actually haven't even checked the SD card, but I don't think that's what's happening. They sometimes reappear, it's been really bizarre. I ran the diagnostic tool, and 3 errors come up whenever I initially start up. Resetting my N64 sometimes makes the errors go away, but they seem to eventually come back. I bought my everdrive from everdrive.me, and reached out to their support. My guess is my everdrive cartridge may be defective. If there's anything I can test before I send it to them to make sure, please let me know.

Thanks again!

Hey lee4, thanks for the reply!

So looking at http://krikzz.com/pub/support/everdrive-64/x-series/OS/changelist.txt I'll need to switch games before turning off my N64 to make the save games persist?

Edit: I tried OS-V3.03 and got an error, check out the attachment

I have a X7 cartridge though? I initially installed OS-V3.05 and it works fine other than the saves not working

Installing OS-V2.13 I got the following screen. I also posted the results of the diagnostics tool
