EverDrive N8 / Re: Fantasy ZOne (JAP) Artefact on PAL Nes
« on: February 05, 2019, 09:41 AM »
The Tengen version of Fantasy Zone that came to US is different from the JP Sunsoft version. Not sure if it has the same issue on PAL consoles.

Krikzz, have you been reading this topic? Do you have a status update? Will mapper 99 be fixed in the next update? Any updates on the OS errors that only affect some systems (which are not caused by the SD card and even occur after a reformat. For me they only happen on the top loading NES with FC sytle N8 and a FC to NES adapter)? I'm under the impression that the N8 OS is unstable.

I bought it off Steam too. It works fine in an emulator, but it won't work on the N8 yet unless somebody has updated the MMC5 mapper. If I remember right, only Castlevania 3 works correctly so far with MMC5.

Please somebody tell me I'm wrong and there is an updated MMC5 mapper I don't know about.

The later OS20 betas support most MMC5 games and have improved FDS sound. OS20 beta 4 seems to be the most stable of these. OS20 beta 6 adds the ability to set the volume of expansion sound over 200% (which isn't helpful for many games) and OS20 beta 7 tweaks MMC3 and breaks compatibility with AVS.

Here is the page with the OS20 betas. Krikzz hasn't posted is this topic for awhile and it's a new year. I'm not sure if Krikzz is aware of the issue with mapper 99 since it hasn't been fixed either.

OS20 beta RC7? Try RC4 or OS16. RC7 altered MMC3 and has trouble with some systems like AVS.

Krikzz, any updates on OS20? There seems to be quite a bit of confusion and it would be nice to have an update on what's going on.

Are you using the latest AVS OS? It changed something wiht PAL and has issues with the N8 beta OS. I recommend trying AVS firmware 1.30 beta 5.

I did a reformat before changing OS and the extra chip files were fine. Some mappers were combined into a file for other similar mappers making it so some custom mappers weren't as easy to get working.

Krikzz, any news on the current status of RC20? There was a mention of the issues with Mapper 99 earlier in the thread (still not fixed as of RC7) and the IO errors seem to only affect some systems (top loading NES with FC style N8 and the Stone Age Gamer FC to NES adapter).

Soooo...  this is kinda confusing.  Earlier it was discussed and said that some N8 wouldn't be able to use the new OS, v20, due to the OS Init freeze.  If I use the N8 on my Analogue NT Mini, v20 rc4-7, it loads fine.  Using it on an original NES gives me the OS Init freeze. 

The OG NES works fine with v16.

Where was this discussed? Krikzz hasn't posted in this topic for a while. Krikzz, any updates on what is happening with OS v20?

EverDrive N8 / Re: SimCity Proto Released. Any chance for a fix?
« on: December 26, 2018, 06:28 AM »
Tested it with v1.6 on the NES, no go.  Tested v2.0 rc7 on the NT Mini, no go.  Tested on the NT Mini via sd card, still no go.

OS v. 16 doesn't have the as much support for the MMC5 as the later v. 20 RCs have. Not sure where 1.6 and 2.0 comes from.

Edit: Tried SimCity proto on RC4 and it shows garbled graphics.

Ok I'll rolled back to one of those then.
What is the issue with the PAL mode using N8? Where can I download the 1.30rc5 firmware?

The issue I had with PAL mode was those SD card read errors, even with a newly formatted SD card that works everywhere else. 1.30 beta 5 can be found on this page.

I heard with a jailbroken NT mini, you can play more than just NES games and compatibility is high. The newest betas for N8 (don't recommend, the latest, RC7, though. RC4 is the most stable and the ability to increase the expansion volume above 100% in RC6 isn't too useful for many games) now have full MMC5 support, along with much better FDS sound, but still have some bugs to be worked out. RC7 of Everdrive N8 has crash issues with MMC3 games on AVS.   

EverDrive GB / Re: GB X3 Crash

Maybe your Gameboy is low on battery life? More power is used than a standard cart and that could cause the GB to shut off.

I'm very shortly going to be having RetroUSB to use and would like to use it with my EverDrive N8. I've been hearing a lot of issues using the newer firmware so would love some advice of which versions I should use for my N8 and AVS. Also for the issues being caused which piece of equipment is at fault. The N8 or AVS?

RC4-RC6 have been fine for me on AVS (RC4 seems to be the most stable out of these), though I rolled back to the 1.30rc5 firmware since 1.30 final has issues with its PAL mode when using N8.

RC6 is fine on AVS, but RC7 hates AVS.

If your using the retrousb avs I would use OS16

I got those white artifacts using OS16, which I didn't get using the later betas. I recommend RC4-6 for AVS and downgrading to the 1.30 beta 5 AVS firmware for PAL games.

EverDrive N8 / Re: Antarctic Adventure is unplayable for me...
« on: December 05, 2018, 01:13 AM »
I thought it was a JP exclusive too, but then I searched and found packaging and images of the title screen with "Penguin Adventure". I have an emulation of the JP version in that MSX collection for Saturn (which also includes the MSX Antarctic Adventure) . Good stuff.
