EverDrive GB X7 - Save states?
« on: August 20, 2017, 03:51 AM »
Hello everyone!

I've been looking for information about the new save state feature on the ED GB X7 but couldn't find much detail. Do you know if it would be compatible with *all* or most games? I'm asking because I'm having a really hard time with my ED N8 and save states, it doesn't seem to work properly with Sandisk Ultra or Lexar cards...made it work on a very old class 4 Sandisk card only.

So, I'm comparing EDGB X5 and X7 and, if I'll have a hard time with save states on a X7 (for $129) I'd definitely buy an X5.

Thanks!

I've just got my x7 and figured how to do save and load states so if you want me to check any games I'm more than happy to try for you as long as I have the game.

When did you order it?

I ordered the X7 one in 12/8, and I'm waiting for it.

Hi BPC 77, thanks for that. Could you please try Operation C? And, since no manual is included with the EDGB...how do you save and load?

Save states will not work only for those games which does not use vblank interrupt. Fortunately almost all games turns on vblank interrupts. But as always i do not give any warranties about save state function, it working as is and some games potentially may not work or show various glitches if save state function were used. Overall, save states on GB/GBC showed good results, it definitely more stable than genesis save states

You press the top of the cartridge
After reading that, it still took me a few minutes to figure out that I needed to press the top of the back of the cartridge.  ;D

If you can have only 1 save state per ROM you just make many copies of the same game with different names. I guess that could work?

@KRIKzz, could you possibly create a tool that would allow converting to/from other save state formats (such as what's used by bizhawk/Gambatte and/or the Hyperkin RetroN 5)?
