EverDrive GB / Re: Transfer Pak
« on: Today at 04:51 AM »
Ya, the dust cover option.

Personally I'm thinking of getting one of the regular Omega's (with the DS Lite dust cover) for use in my DS Lite, will probably use my oversized GBA X5 for use in my Gameboy Player, and the Omega Definitive Edition (which is a size 'inbetween') for most uses (GBA AGS-101 and other GBA in my collection).

I have several options for my Super Gameboy, between original Everdrive GB, and ED X7, as well as FPGA method on the SD2SNES Pro/FXPak Pro, etc... But I'd definitely buy a 'slim' option if it existed for carrying around for my GBA AGS-101, or other GBA's in my collection. It would be so much easier to carry around since it wouldn't stick out, or at least stick out as much (if they were forced to use Boktai or Yoshi's Topsy Turvy form factor).

If they went with the Yoshi Topsy Turvy method on the GB Everdrive their would be no way to pull out the cart in the Super Gameboy also it wouldn't reach the pin connectors as it would need to be twice the length if it was a mini one.

You are perhaps a little slow on the uptake, but as pointed out earlier people asking for this option on EZFlash don't want it for Super Gameboy, or old gameboys. They want a card option that fits more snugly in their GBA, GBA-SP, or Gameboy Player... Like the half DS-Lite size Dustcover GBA flashcarts fits snugly into DS-Lite without sticking out (see Omega, EZFlash IV lite, or EzFlash 3in1, etc)....

For those wanting the same card but to fit in a regular gameboy slot then it should have a regular sized case as well for older DMG/Pocket/Light/Color and super gameboy...

It's sort of similar to amount of people even on these forums asking for a GBA Everdrive X5 that's got dual-mode option of both GBA and classic gameboy on the 'same cartridge' via some kind of switching mechanism, but want it so they can have something that's 'slim fitting' with the GBA line, and only having to carry one cartridge around, that's also better than the terrible goomba emulation.

EverDrive GBA / Re: CR1225 battery?
« on: June 15, 2021, 03:39 PM »
How about the holder on the GB x7?

One reason I ask, is because I need to replace battery in both my x5 and GB x7... The problem I have is I can't seem to find 1220's in the local stores but they have loads of 1225s....

EverDrive 64 / Re: Yakouchuu II N64 Translation

Additionally the text and the images are sometimes at odds. I wanted to translate the word 操舵室 as "Wheelhouse", because it's a cool word. But during an FMV sequence you are shown the door of said room, and it is labeled "The Bridge" in English. In such cases you have to avoid the game contradicting itself.

Wheelhouse and Bridge are interchangeable terms, or at least subsets of the same location, depending on usage, and not necessarily contradictory.

The Wheelhouse, or “bridge” of a ship is the area from which the ship can be commanded. When a ship is underway the wheelhouse is manned by an OOW (officer of the watch).

Wheelhouses were the enclosed parts of a larger “bridge” that historically held the ship’s wheel. Today, ship’s bridges do not have a separate wheelhouse; but the term wheelhouse is still acceptable.

Historically sailing ships were commanded from the quarterdeck, aft of the mainmast. With the arrival of paddle steamers, engineers required a platform from which they could inspect the paddle wheels and where the captain’s view would not be obstructed by the paddle houses. A raised walkway, literally a bridge, connecting the paddle houses was therefore provided.

When the screw propeller eventually superseded the paddle wheel, the bridge was retained – as it made an excellent position to safely oversee navigation and ships operations.

In a way its similar to "Fore/Forward and Bow (additionally: prow, forecastle) being related, or Aft/After and Stern (additionally: poop, tail, quarter)" and being related. Not necessarily all topics being directly interchangeable, but sometimes subsets of a specific topic (I.E. prow is part of the bow, as is forecastle, etc).

No thanks to a half-sized EDGB. You wouldn't be able to push it out once inserted since the cartridge slot is made for a full-sized cartridge. Even making it a little bit shorter would just make it harder to push out. Gameboy carts has a grove for placing the thumb in when pushing it out, and this space must be adequately large.

Half sized cart option would only be for GBA (with a similar shape to a GBA cart), one would be stupid to try to fit it into a GB or GBC....

Also it should be 'optional' alternate case like what was done with EZFlash Omega, and earlier. Although in that case it was a choice between GBA or DS Lite sized slots. Yes one would be stupid if they tried to fit DS Lite size anything into a GBA or DS Phat size slot....

It's something I've seen people speculate about from time to time, though there are potential hurdles to get over.....

EverDrive GBA / Re: CR1225 battery?
« on: June 15, 2021, 05:04 AM »
tried CR1225 in gba x5 mini and it fits in just fine, gets out of the battery holder just as 'easily' as CR1220. no structural damage done to the battery holder, no cart bulging, seems to work just fine. try at your own risk. unless you have a badly soldered on battery holder, in your gba x5 mini, it should work without any issues

Nice to know... so what's up with the opposing answers in previous posts?

EverDrive GBA / Re: Game compatiblity (X5 vs ODE)

EverDrive GB / Re: Transfer Pak
« on: June 12, 2021, 08:35 PM »
If there was an EZ-flash Jr Definitive Addition that added 'rumble' (there over a dozen games with built in rumble, and the cartridges are generally big and bulky, so a miniturized cart would be great), NOR mode (for Transfer Pak linking), maybe a few more added features not in the x7, it would be total buy for me...

Maybe add 'half-size cart'  and extra GBA casing (like Omega series and other earlier Ezflash products that offered two size cases) so that it fits in a GBA sized cart, so it doesn't stick out on GBA,....

Ya, and the flashcart doesn't have eeprom128 compatiblity for whatever reason (only has eeprom8k, and eeprom512). Only flash128. If it didn't work with FLash128 then people would be sol...

Apparently this problem doesn't exist on the original Omega.

I pointed it out to the developers its an issue with all or most of the Dragonball Z games... THey  require a search for eeprom 128 mode, apparently flash128 works too. The dvelopers said it will be fixed in next firmware.

EverDrive GBA / Game compatiblity (X5 vs ODE)
« on: June 11, 2021, 04:52 AM »
Well slowly working my way through testing games.... Seems I hit one game that doesn't work on the ODE, but works fine on the X5...

Dragon Ball Z: Taiketsu

You'll get a warning saying "game won't work on hardware" on the ODE, but it works fine on Krikkz's flashcart.

Anyone know what causes the issue?

13
Upon further testing the issue might be that my memory card didn't get formatted to Fat32 (I thought I already did), and was in exFat... But its interesting that EzFlash ODE can read exFat...

Gonna back up and format it and test it with Fat32 and ED GBA x5.

EverDrive GB / Re: X7 - Cart button doesn't work very often
« on: June 05, 2021, 03:11 AM »
In a lot of games, and especially demos/homebrew, the cart button doesn't work AT ALL. I'll press it several times and nothing happens, even though it's enabled in the OS' options menu. In some games, it works fine. I just got the Everdrive, and the button feels clicky and healthy, and there's no visible issue with anything on the cart... it just doesn't work very often.

I think I've made a list of games that cart button won't work on somewhere in this forum. I tested through something like 2/3+ of the full no-intro rom library discovering which ones won't work... Quite a few GBC games are imcompatible with it from what I remember. From what I could remember still 80-90% of the games do work, so its not a huge problem.

Ya, I haven't had any issues with micro sds or larger SDs themselves. Been using some for years.
