I'm guessing it's a version of the N8 firmware designed to boot directly to a game to circumvent some of the issues with games that use the start up state for calculations like Metroid. Neat! Thanks Krikzz!

Not sure the lockout chip is the issue since the errors happened to me on the official top loading NES using the Famicom N8 with adapter.

The first post from Krikzz recommends RC4 if you have artifacts with other versions.

Not Mega SD (not even sure if anyone has one yet), I was talking about playing the game directly on a jailbroken Analogue Mega SG (not a typo). Mega SG != Mega SD

I tested the roms from the archive on X7 and Mega SG. Both play the versions without tracks, but the ones with tracks don't work on either the Mega SG nor the X7.

Hopefully the next N8 will also fix the problem with consoles that have a NESRGB installed where sometimes there is speckling all over the picture, requiring a random number of power resets to clear up.

I'm a bit confused here. I thought it was fixed in V20 since it no longer occurs on AVS like it did with V16. I didn't have the speckling on the AV Famicom or model 2 NES at all. I heard v16 fixed it for some systems, though. Not sure why it's still coming up on some systems.

RC4 seems fine for me on AV famicom, though RC6 seemed ok too. I don't have a NES one to try and I plan to wait for the new Everdrive N8 since the FC version seems to have issues with the FC to NES adapters. Earlier firmwares were ok with the adapter, though.

Frustrating that some things that worked in previous OS won't be fixed. Too bad there isn't a database specifically for bug reports. Too many things get lost or confused in forum posts.

V16 wasn't perfect either, though. It still has those artifacts when used on some systems. I'm glad os20 exists at all, especially with MMC5 support and much better FDS sound.

I did. The Castle and Othello work directly off jailbreak firmware, but not off the Everdrive.

Here are some games that seem to have compatibility issues with X7:

The Castle SG-1000 - (shows garbage after SEGA logo on Mega SG and doesn't play sound on Genesis, even after pushing a button)

Othello SG-1000 - (shows blank screen on Mega SG and doesn't play sound on Genesis, even after pushing a button. Othello Multivision BIOS version plays on Mega SG and has sound on Genesis, but isn't playable with standard controllers)

Arcade Smash Hits SMS - Locks up on Centipede when played on Sega Genesis and Mega SG in NTSC and PAL modes.

Pit Fighter SMS - Both Brazilian and European versions start to play music and lock up on a black screen (Genesis and Mega SG NTSC and PAL)

I also heard of compatibility issues with Lion King SMS and Jungle Book SMS, but I haven't tested them.

I tested on my HDG Genesis 1 with TMSS and JP/EN region switch in both US and JP mode. Passed first stage in US mode and first and second stages in JP mode. No lock ups. Japanese ROM. "Whip Rush - Wakusei Voltegas no Nazo (Japan).md"

What happened to that plan of sending a console and everdrive experiencing the issue to Krikzz?

This was answered a few posts ago. It was put on hold since Krikzz wants to test a FC to NES adapter with the FC Everdrive N8 to see if that is causing the issue,

The rom is not in zip format. 
I did test it in an emulator and it works there, but does not work on the N8.

I meant to unzip or copy the rom to PC instead of directly unzipping it to the N8. Sometimes the ROMs don't work when they are directly unzipped to the Everdrive N8.

To clarify, the V2/X7 can read gg files, but the md/genesis can't play stock gg games since the hardware isn't fully compatible. However, the mega sg can play sms mode gg games. Genesis can't play them since it lacks an equivalent for the gg start button.

Genesis can't play GG normally due to the expanded GG palette. There are a handful of GG games that use SMS mode, but a few of them can't be started when played on Genesis since start is mapped to the gg start buttin.

Is this on a NTSC NES? Some PAL games don't play correctly on NTSC systems.

I have IO errors when using the Famicom N8 with the stone age gamer FC to NES adapter on the top loading NES with the betas, but not with OS 16.
