EverDrive GBA / Re: New EZ Omega is better than X5?
« on: August 26, 2019, 04:01 PM »
Someone got Wolfenstien 3D to work on Gameboy color...

https://www.engadget.com/2016/12/19/wolfenstein-3d-ported-to-game-boy-color-on-turbocharged-cart/

But it actually took putting a seperate CPU on the custom cartridge they made.

Technically if you did something like a Super Gameboy where the entire gameboy system is put into a cartridge, you might get it to 'work' partially.  Sure if you had a large enough and fast enough FPGA on a flashcart, and that flashcart FPGA could 'be a SNES' hardware/cpu/graphics processing, and just pass the video and sound through the speaker, and screen, then it might be possible to 'see' the game played on a GBA.

However, that woudl still leave the problem of 'not enough buttons'.... THere are a handful of SNES games that don't utilize all the buttons anyways, so those would probably be able to be played on the system if buttons are mapped properly. But most of the  best games utilize all the buttons, and there simply aren't enough on the system. One way to possibly get around that is do 'combo button' pushes, but that could cause problems itself like being overly complicated, and having actions you don't want to do happen before before you can pull of a combo.

Also dealing with an FPGA and other hardware that could handle this? Probably extremely expensive... at least $200... the other issue is it would have to be essentially an extremely shrunken down Mister or Super NT basically, and that might not be feasible on a GBA size cart, even if you made a special cart that stuck out as much as needed (for example something closer to the Warioware Twisted cart, or larger)...

But at that point you are no longer using the actual original hardware.
You could make a cart that runs PC games and just passes video and sound down to the GBA, but I wouldn't be interested in that shit :-)

Coming soon :o



Yeah, I understand this is a Krikzz forum, but not sure why people are recommending the X5 so vehemently when it seems the only benefit it has over the EZO is better battery life (I'll be using my DS and GBASP for this so I can always recharge the batteries before fully drained) and better build quality. Plus it will cost $40-50 more. Can someone who owns both chime in? I want to order soon as I'll be leaving on a relatively long trip and my only form of gaming will probably be with this flash cart.
Well,  the EZFLash Omega clocks drifts over time considerably by several minutes. Also if the EZOmega malfunctions after 6 months can you get an almost free replacement/fix from your chinese seller? I guess not.

Looks awfully like the X5, I don't know how it seems to be smaller as it still has the huge top area for the extra stuff. I think a huge selling point would be if someone managed to advance the SNESAdvance support feature. I know the X5 had native for Game Gear, NES and Master System but as from what I managed to re-create to make SNES games actually work better on a GBA this is a must and would be vastly superior as a selling point.

Every post you make you have to mention SNESadvance. Lol
It's never going to be any good. The GBA doesn't have the power, the resolution or the buttons.
Nobody cares about it, man. It's only ever going to be an experiment, it will never be usable.

Yeah... no one will care about it as it needed time and effort to work...

Also guess these 4 imgur links really don't show progress do they?

The first image is the premade one the other is the correction

A bunch of screen shots don't change the 6fps, no sound, cut off screen and physical lack of 2 buttons.
It.
Will.
Not.
Work.

If you look around you can find the Omega for $20-$30 including shipping. I don't expect it to be anywhere the build quality of the $100-$120 X5.

The difference is that the Omega is machine assembled and everdrives are human assembled.

Looks nice, but if it's just a shrunken X5 then I won't be bothering.
Krikzz doesn't actually answer the features question.

Yeah definitely the X5.
Who doesn't love spending more money for less features, right?

We'll have to wait and see about the Mega SD.
I have pre-ordered it as it looks truly epic.

I just hope it doesn't have a laundry list of issues like the Super SD System 3 did.

Ah, it's probably because I'm not playing on a handheld that I haven't had that save issue.
It takes me a while to get my ass up and switch off. Lol

I haven't had any issues at all yet.
So far so good!

Well I just got an Omega on a whim because they are so cheap now,  and I have to say I am very surprised at how much I like it!
It may actually replace my X5, which was bought to replace my EZflash IV. Lol

Words and stuff.

That's some damn nice investigation skills, man.

EverDrive GBA / Re: Can't boot AT ALL

That sounds like a dry solder joint.
The fact that it only works when you bend it makes me think a connection has failed somewhere.

EverDrive GBA / Re: Everdrive GBA X5 and battery?
« on: June 24, 2019, 04:53 AM »
Yeah that's odd.
Like you, I thought the battery was just used for the RTC. I thought saves were written straight to the SD card...

Hmmm

Is it possible to access the in game menu via some means other than clicking the cartridge?
If not, would such a thing be possible to add via a firmware update?

EverDrive GBA / Re: Frame rate drops. SD card speed issues?
« on: June 15, 2019, 05:20 PM »
Update:

Got a copy of Fusion in. Popped it in and started a new file. Noticed the stuttering STILL. It's not the Everdrive. Pulled the GCHD out of the chain and used S-Video directly into my PVM. Same story.
 
Looks like its either my Gamecube, the Game Boy Player, or these games just have a little stuttering every now and then and I'm just OCD enough to notice it...

Oh man. That is weird. No idea what that could be then.
