Issues regarding the update 1.23 for everdrive n8
« on: May 07, 2020, 10:10 PM »
I downloaded the update for my everdrive n8, and I noticed a few problems that came up. First the famicom disk system boot screen is now missing and replaced with a generic blue screen. Second, I can only get up to world 4-4 in smb2j fds version until the game locks after the castle. Third, Mappylands background seems to be off centered and scroll strange which doesn't align with the collision at all. I tried multiple roms and no success all from nointro collection.

I was using the Japanese rom for mappy land when this occurred. I tried the usa version, and now its fixed. What is the problem here? Is it a compatibility issue with mapper 4.I would also like to know what happened to the fds boot screen and why it was removed and if i can get it back.

Mappy-Land (Japan) works fine for me with the N8 Pro.  Sounds like your ROMs have a header issue (mirroring most likely), check here for the correct header information :

You aren't getting your FDS boot screen back unless you use an OS before the change was made.  SMB2J is a known issue, you'll have to wait for a fix, if a fix comes.

Unauthorized use of Nintendo copyrighted code and/or trademarked characters and possibly sound effects would be good reasons to remove it.

He should make an update for the user to use their dumped bios as an optional boot up bios.
