Did you check the glitch that i stated above on original sd2snes or chinese sd2snes?
Original, but it doesn't matter as both should function in identical ways due to the Chinese-made boards being made from the same schematics and PCB layout (Rev. F) which are open source. My consoles are all NTSC, btw.

Turns out that the glitch happens at random.

I attached the console with RF cable and the glitch didn't appear so i connected the snes back with composite cable and for my surprise the glitch was gone, then i decided to turn the system off and turn on again, removing and inserting the sd2snes again and the glitch did come back, turned the console off and powered it on again and the glitch didn't appear...

I don't know what is happening but i assume that it has to be an issue that ikari_01 should check because it might be a bug in this specific version of sd2snes firmware, currently 0.1.7e.

Sooo, are you playing the US SMW on a Chinese SD2SNES on a PAL console?

Yes, but not on a pure PAL console, that's a PAL-M console instead.

So, i should avoid 1CHIP model as hell, got it. To turn things even worse i think it's a PAL-M model.

Thanks.

Actually 1CHIP consoles are very sought after due to them outputting much sharper video in comparison to earlier models and the compatibility issues are very minor. I prefer the older models due to having better audio (specifically the SHVC-CPU-01 [1/1/1 is my main, but I also have a 2/1/3]) and guaranteed 100% compatibility, but I also keep a modded Mini around just in case I want to use it.

It all comes down to personal preference.

It does not happen to me. What revision SNES are you using (look at system information CPU/PPU1/PPU2)? If it is a 1CHIP or Mini, that is a separate revision.

Have you noticed any oddities in any other games? Also what are the results of the SNES Burn-in test to rule out any hardware flaws with your SNES?
Also run a test on the SD2SNES and see if there are any failures (not counting CIC): https://sd2snes.de/blog/cool-stuff/sd2snes-diagnostics

Model Fat
CPU = 3
PPU1 = 1
PPU2 = 2

I don't know if it is 1CHIP.

3/1/2 means it can be any model. If you can't open it up, check for the common 1CHIP glitches, like the glitchy bar in Demon's Crest or the lack of shadow in A.S.P. Air Strike Patrol.

It is important to run both the burn in test and the SD2SNES diagnostics in order to rule out any flaws with your hardware, since even with 1CHIP consoles, I am unaware of any compatibility issues with Super Mario World.

Why don't you buy a real SNES and play on it instead? I guess you bought a Super NT because you prefer to play SNES games on your HDTV with HDMI cable but i have an old real SNES and i play on HDTV with composite cable and i have a SNES Classic and i can't barely see any difference when playing the games using HDMI cable, actually the graphics look more natural on old SNES + composite cable since the signal doesn't get upscaled and the games were meant to be played on that resolution. Also Super NT tries to simulate the original hardware so is prone to issues.

Because I already have one, and the Snes Classic's emulation isn't that great, and they filter some of Earthbound's flashing with stupid seizure filters. But whatever. The Snes Classic can't even run Earthworm Jim 2 right.



Right. Canoe emulation sucks on certain games. I prefer playing the games on real snes hardware.

You may have to format using a SD card formatter:

I've got a strange glitch on the first boss of world 1.

When the platform goes up and down at the region that i spotted in circle there is a flickering line with the same texture of the platform that is moving.

I'm running a chinese sd2snes on 0.1.7e firmare, no-intro rom of the game, all hooks turned off. Can anyone confirm if this happens on your sd2snes too?

Looks Chinese. KRIKzz never uses TIANQIU batteries as far as I know. ;)

Is the battery really a strong evidence to say this is a clone?

@efsd:  Chances are you either aren't sensitive to the differences in display or have a HDTV that somehow handles composite and the scaling very, very well.  On my end, the difference between the SNES hooked up to my Samsung 4K and the image quality from the SNES Classic are night and day.  (I have seen a few sets that do look okay with composite, although again, I'm quite sensitive to these things.)

I've been tempted to grab the Super Nt; it looks like a nice piece of kit.  But at the same time, I have a 32" CRT that's nearly perfect for the original machine.

I think i'm not sensitive then...

Here are some pictures of the board. I guess it is original indeed, right?

Hi everyone.

I've bought an used sd2snes rev.f recently from a seller at local store and after a bit of search i realized that its label differs from the one that is selling on krikzz store. Is it a clone? How can i check if it is authentic or not? Are there any knockoff or clone selling out there?

Here is the label (I didn't buy from this store):
