Hello,

I love the SD2SNES and Genesis Everdrive, and I'm constantly using the controller shortcuts to reset to the rom-list menu, to choose a new game. Switching between lots of games without walking to press the reset button is huge for me and probably many of you.

I looked for a topic here dedicated to this feature and didn't quite find it, so I thought I'd post one.

What would it take? Anybody working on it? Is there a bug/issue page somewhere I can post/subscribe/vote on?

Would it help if the community funded a bounty for it?

A question I've been asking for quite some time as well....

I don't think the N8 has the necessary logic to do this (under-powered).

There is a hardware modification that I purchased but haven't installed-- it's created by the genius borti-- called the IGR NES I/O. It works with a NESRGB board, and enables you to reset the console with a button combo, as well as change the palette with a different combo. But, we're talking about a lot of money after you buy the boards and get it modded... but if you're interested send me a PM, I have some more info for you.

Here you go.

You can either buy a pre modded console or the Hi Def NES kit itself for installation into your existing NES console.

It has an ingame reset feature directly built into it by it's designer Kevtris a.k.a Kevin Horton.

Thanks, but I'm using scart through a PVM. Either way, it's currently gonna be a lotta money to spend to be able to reset from the controller.

I've been told that the N8 isn't powerful enough to do IGR, but that's not from the horse's mouth.. so who knows.

Technically it possible. I thinking about implementation of this feature.

Thank you, Krikzz. It would be an awesome addition. Any plans for the N64 too?

No, and even not sure if it possible at all
