What should I buy?
« on: October 09, 2019, 11:04 PM »
Sorry but I can't think right now and am having a hard time right now finding answers on the main page, the forum and the rest of the internet.

Can someone just quickly confirm which SFC/SNES Everdrive is best/Which one should I buy?

Is it simply the SD2SNES PRO ?

Thank you.

Go for SD2SNES PRO; it has the most chip enhancement compatibility, can load 128MBit ROMs and (yet-to-be-announced) save state support.

Super Everdrive is cheaper as long as you don't play any game that uses an enhancement chip and the max ROM size only goes up to 7.5MBytes unless you only want to use it for A Link To The Past Randomizer/Super Metroid tournaments which will do the job perfectly.

Agreed, the SD2SNES Pro is the way to go.

The latest firmware can always be found here: https://sd2snes.de/blog/

Yeah the SD2SNES Pro is the best one overall (as it plays the most games) and its best in a future proofing sense as it may get more features (Game Boy support perhaps?) and games or at least "a game" that being "Far East of Eden" playable on it over time.

However if you just want to play the main/core Nintendo game library of Mario, Zelda, Mario Kart, etc krikzz Super Everdrive may be just fine for you.

Ok, ok with Super Everdrive there's a Kirby game you can't play nor can you play Super Mario World 2: Yoshi's Island but just saying if all you really care about is Super Mario World, Zelda: Link To the Past, Super Metroid, Mario Kart, Street Fighter II and a reasonable amount of popular RPG's the lower priced krikzz Super Everdrive again may be just fine for you.  :P

krikzz products I own: SD2SNES, Joyzz, Everdrive GB X7, Everdrive GBA X5, Mega Everdrive X7, Everdrive 64 v3, Everdrive N8, Turbo Everdrive v2, Master Everdrive X7.

Hi  :)

So almost two years after creating this thread I finally ordered the FXPAK PRO. I have two questions.

1. Could someone please kindly confirm that the FXPAK PRO is the latest version of the previously called SNES2SD?

2. Is a mini SD card included? I suppose not. Can you tell me which one I should get for it on https://www.amazon.co.uk/ ?

Thanks :)

It depends on what you want to put on it. A set of 1G1R (one game, one region) SNES ROMs comes in at about 3.2GB. If you want to put the equivalent compatible Game Boy games for Super Game Boy, that's an extra gigabyte. So to be safe you'd want an 8GB card to cover those.

Then there are hacks, translations, prototypes and unlicensed games, MSU1 games etc. Especially if you want to put MSU1 hacks on there you'd want a 32-64GB card. You probably won't need anything more than that, though.

Personally I use the cheap red and grey Sandisk Ultra cards and I've never had a problem with access times or reliability. I usually buy mine from Amazon.co.uk as well.

Hi,

Thank you for your reply! Yes, I want to play the sets of all three regions (JP, US, PAL), and I also want to make use of hacks, translations, prototypes and unlicensed games, MSU1 games etc. (by the way thank you for the MSU1 hacks in your signature, I will definitely get these :)

So yes, I think I should just get a 64GB card to make sure I can fit everything on one card. May I ask which one exactly you would recommend from Amazon.co.uk if it comes to this size?

Bearing in mind that my signature contains only the audio packs for the hacks I contributed to. You'll still need the patches. They can all be found at Zeldix.net along with the other hacks I didn't work on.

Something like this: https://www.amazon.co.uk/SanDisk-microSDXC-Memory-Adapter-Performance/dp/B08GYBBBBH/ref=sr_1_3?crid=3JW21C93CGOH0&dchild=1&keywords=sandisk+64gb+micro+sd+card&qid=1629308220&sprefix=Sandisk+64gb%2Caps%2C156&sr=8-3

I can feel your excitement. I just ordered mine. Just an FYI-Retro game asylum sells fully loaded SD and MicroSD cards for all the everdrives for just 30 bucks. Comes with thousands of games loaded from each region including hacks and homebrews etc. I’ve bought a couple from him and am going to order one now for the FX Pak.

That sounds like piracy though.

not so serious piracy

It's more serious than the average person using Google-Fu to find ROMs. Selling loaded SD cards that contain copyrighted material is undoubtedly illegal.
