Title: Firmware v1.10.3 are out.
Post by: lee4 on April 05, 2019, 01:45 AM
changelog:

    [Mk2] Revert S-DD1 bitfile to earlier build which happens to less expose a timing hazard. This will need further examination for a proper fix. Fixes severe glitches with S-DD1.
    [All] Fix swapped logic terms in SA-1 and SuperFX RAM write cycles. Fixes severe glitches on SA-1 and SuperFX on Mk.II units; The bug was also present in the Pro firmware but didn’t seem to have much of an effect.
    [All] Fix game video mode setting in SuperCIC pair mode.

No other FPGA device for console gaming has been actively supported and improved as long as sd2snes.  It has always been the best flash cart for the SNES, and it continues to add more and more functionality that the other flash carts lack.

This says for "MkII" models. Did a new SD2SNES come out recently? Or will this firmware work with my unit that I bought 4 years ago?

I think the MKII is just a current example of the latest version. I have been using MK II updates of my 4 year one or which ever one Retrotowers have been using and all systems are a go with it.

Just pinned by Ikari on the classic gaming Discord:

*** v1.10.3 DOWNLOAD REMOVED - DO NOT USE *** - saved game corruption hazard on SuperFX + SA-1. For now I recommend to keep using v1.10.1 (on Mk.2) or v1.10.2 (on Pro).

I hate to criticize, but is there a reason the recent firmware versions have been, well, unstable lately?

It seems like the last few releases have been cursed.

Looks like the last error was caused by a simple typo. Should hopefully be all fixed soon.

Hmm, I hope the custom ALTTP theme will still work with it, only themes I've seen support up to 1.10.1.

menu.bin is just gui for sd2snes mkii non-pro

firmware.img is firmware file to update sd2snes mkii non-pro

That doesn't answer my previous question. The themes I've all seen only say "supported up to 1.10.0", which means, they won't work on the newest firmware. So, yeah, I'm screwed if I update to the latest, and can't use custom themes.

Site here: http://bmf.rustedlogic.net/sd2snes/ says "For use with firmware version 1.10.0" so yeah, is it compatible or not?

theme made for menu.bin v1.10.0, they will work on firmware 1.10.0 to 1.10.10 includes 1.10.1, 1.10.2, 1.10.3 and 1.10.4
theme made for menu.bin v1.10.0 will not work on 1.11.0

theme made for menu.bin v1.10.0 will not work on 1.11.0

So what's the difference between the firmware files themselves, and the menu.bin? Can I use a 1.10.3 with a theme that was made on 1.10.0?  That's what you're saying, correct?  I don't want to end up bricking it.

1.10.3 is broken

Well, I'm kinda starting to worry that new firmware versions are uh, well, breaking. Does he have people to help QA test them before release, like beta testers? Maybe?

No he does all him self, there was a fix for 1.10.3 on classic gaming discord from Ikari for the save problem. For both the pro and og sd2snes.....but the firmware has been taken down anyway. So it’s really only for those that have the firmware

I feel bad that he doesn't get more help from others to help him test, that's a lot to take on

I've been on 1.9.0 as I've been too wary to go to 1.10.x in all honesty.

v1.10.3 is now out again with the fix (it seem it was a trivial cut'n'paste error in a single place).


"Firmware v1.10.3 is up again! The cause of the error was a silly copy&paste bug in a single place which could be fixed and retested easily. Only SuperFX was affected."

This new firmware seems broken again :( SA1 games works again but Super Mario Kart don't wants to launch on my SD2SNES MKII now :( Anybody with the same issue?

I personally am still using old firmware with the files to get SA1 and SFX to work.

when an official release is stable enough I'll use that.

You have to have the bios files installed on your SD card
