I think he is still supporting them, X-3 and X-5 are budget alternatives to the X-7 and Pro, and still supported alongside them. The X5 is not much older than the Pro.
But his work on all Everdrives seems to have slowed down a lot lately, not just the ones for Mega Drive. Twitter seems to be the easiest way to communicate with him.

The X-series are not deprecated products so they may still receive updates to get this fixed. Krikzz doesn't show up on the forum very often though.

Your explanation is all over the place, you lost me right away. I definitely said that SVG is digital data (software) and not hardware. And an emulator is definitely all software that tries to reproduce (emulate) hardware. The ROM is the original software of the game system and doesn't need to be reproduced in any way by the emulator.
Mame only uses the dumped ROMs of real G&W devices not those MGW programs.

I have a basic idea how Mame G&W emulators and vector graphics works, no need to explain that to me. My question was how you define software since you consider the G&W graphics as software. Ignore emulators and SVG files, I'm talking about real G&W devices here. Maybe you answered me already but it went over my head in that case.

Not only verification, for every game and for every platform you need to acquire the game and figure out a way to dump it, it takes time. Now the no-intro set has matured, so they got most or all games for many platforms. This was not the case some years ago, so people often used the, at the time, more complete goodsets.

No-intro definitely had to redump some games in the past after figuring out what went wrong. The no-intro FDS set was long wrong and immature (many missing games), I'm not sure if they fixed them yet but with the FDS lot check from the gigaleak, we should now have the last revision of every official FDS game correctly dumped, unless Nintendo made any mistakes dumping them.
The Neo Geo Pocket situation is also apparently similar to FDS because games are stored on FLASHROM rather than the traditional mask-ROMs, and the save data is stored on the same memory that the game is, and mixed with it.

A clone with built-in games is more different from a real Famicom than a clone without so I don't find that strange. And the games are probably all pirated so they don't necessarily make the system less cheap.

It's probably fixable in an OS update to make the Everdrive act like the real cart so that it can't be detected by the piracy check.

No-intro are supposed to make perfect dumps but in reality they also make mistakes which are sometimes discovered and fixed in a later release.
But you are right about the hashes. I would like to make updating an automated process in the future.

I stopped using the goodset long ago. The no-intro set used to be missing many ROMs, but that's no longer the case so I see little reason to use the goodset anymore.

This looks like a NOAC though, so there is probably no emulation here, but it's still an inaccurate clone. Famiclones are hit and miss with flashcarts.

Oh there are many reasons to play the original. Here is a list of some of them:

In that case disabling all add-ons might work.

That's a problem when our old SD cards breaks yes. I have hopes for a product in the future that allows "spoofing" SD and SDHC technology in the future for old legacy products.

This also makes me think about floppy disks. They are still in production today because there are old expensive machines that use them.

Ok you don't update the whole set. I would prefer to update all ROMs in a set unless I know exactly what ROMs has been changed and added, but it just takes too much time. Especially since I have flashcarts for almost all consoles I own.
The genre sorting is only for clean no-intro ROMs. I have a separate "hacks" folder for any patched ROMs.

FRAM is also much more expensive than SRAM, but it might be a good solution for any flashcart with an RTC.

So this is a Firefox problem? I personally would never want to touch Chrome or Edge if I could help it.

It might be faulty, contact Krikzz or the seller.

EverDrive GBA / Re: Moving from X5 to X5 mini - saves not loading?

There is an option for loading the SRAM file. Also just renaming it to the same as the ROM except the file extension will make it load automatically. Make sure the file extension is correct.

And the SRAM is flushed each time you load up a new gram different from the last one, no need to run Diagnostic.
