Mega EverDrive / Re: Which ROM Types Supported (X5)?
« on: July 08, 2021, 11:07 AM »
No-intro is a dumping group that aims to make perfect dumps of ROMs. Search the internet for a No-intro Mega Drive ROM set.
Older ROMs floating the internet are usually managed and named by the goodtools. Those ROM sets (often called goodsets) contains all types of ROMs, good, bad hacks, pirates etc, and although the [!] symbol is supposed to mark a good dump by goodtools, this is not always correct. So avoid goodsets and look for No-intro sets. You can use their DAT-o-matic to check if a particular ROM you have is verified good or not.
If it has the same hash (you may need a special program to check that, google it) it should be the exact same file.

The ROMs you moved might be bad dumps? Emulators are more forgiving with bad dumps than a real Mega Drive is. No-intro ROMs are usually recommended for most systems.

The front page says that the Pro's NSF player supports VRC6, VRC7, Sunsoft-5b and Namco-163 expansion sound, so I guess it's safe to assume that those along with MMC5 and FDS expansion sound are all supported by the N8 Pro. Only the Jaleco and Bandai expansion sound chips are unsupported. No emulator supports those either so far.

Yes. You need to do another unrelated mod (which has nothing to do with audio) for MMC5 and a few other games to work as most adapters don't connect some pins used by those games. These games are very few though, and if you don't plan to play any of them you don't need to do this mod either.

Yes it lives inside the cart itself as the game don't know how to access the SD card. Generally Everdrives doesn't copy the save file to the SD card until you load a different game.

Hold the reset button longer than usual to hard-reset to the menu instead of resetting the game.

There is also a soft-reset option which requires you to enable "in-game hooks". In-game hooks are problematic and doesn't work with all games though, so if you use it, remember to disable it if there is a game you want to play that doesn't work correctly when hooks are enabled. I never use it.

Probably because it would be too slow to sort more. Look for a FAT sorter program which can physically sort your files alphabetically on the SD card.

EverDrive 64 / Re: Everdrive 64 X7 - Screen Adjustment
« on: July 05, 2021, 01:16 PM »
That's definitely not possible. As I said earlier, each game controls its resolution on its own, and I'm sure there is no way to "override" this except for hacking the game. And even if the game was hacked, the N64 only has a number of preset resolutions that the DAC outputs, there is no way to adjust the screen position or size beyond those presets by software on the N64.

I can think of two possible solutions for screen size/position problems:

1. Find the service menu for your TV or monitor and adjust screen position and/or screen size. You may need to download the service manual for the TV and the remote, and hope that it has a service menu or other way to adjust screen values without having to open the TV (which is very dangerous if you don't know what you are doing and not a good solution since you may have to adjust back and forth for every console).
The 240p test suite homebrew app can be used for this, but unfortunately there is no N64 version so you need one of the supported consoles and a flashcart or homebrew exploit.

2. Use an external device that is able to adjust the video signal before it enters the TV or monitor. I've seen V-position and H-position adjustment devices with SCART connectors on Ali Express, but I don't know if they are any good. They might also only work with RGB which is no good for N64 unless you modded it.

EverDrive 64 / Re: Everdrive X7 menu not centered

No it's the ED64 menu that doesn't follow the rules of overscan. I explained it in that other thread I linked to.
Check if your TV has some menu option for adjusting the screen. You might have to look how to enter the service menu (if there is one) to be able to adjust the screen position or size. I found both the user's manual and the service manual for download for your TV by searching the internet. The service manual should explain how to enter and use the service menu, and you probably need the remote.

What have you tried so far?
Does the save files work in emulators?

EverDrive N8 / Re: Retron Question
« on: July 04, 2021, 08:42 AM »
It probably depends on the clone, but it sounds like the button should work better with clones that hides the controller from the ED N8.

PA is one of the outer pins not used by most games. Clean the cartridge slot.

What do you mean? The Everdrive can't be flashed like that. Normal Gameboy carts doesn't have flash memory and can't be flashed at all.
Nintendo Power carts and certain other flashcarts can be flashed with a special programmer. Many of those cheap flashcarts for Gameboy are dangerous for your Gameboy and for the cart itself though.

No licensed NES game uses expansion audio, but some reproduction carts do, such as the Everdrive N8. So both 72-to-60-pin and 60-to-72-pin adapters needs to be modded.

Maybe the CPU-06 is more power optimized. These LCD mods often seems to cause problems with Everdrives.

I'm not an expert, but the reason I think it was a power issue is because you had unpredictable and irregular behavior, and in my experience that is typical for power problems. And since you used both an Everdrive and an LCD mod, the setup isn't standard spec anymore, so I'm not surprised that even good quality batteries wouldn't help.
