I'm returning my sd2snes, and this is what I found out by a via a messenge from stone age gamer!
"Also note that we will most likely not be able to provide a North American shell for the Pro version, as the pcb from the first batch was made too large to fit them, and we will only be able to offer gray Universal shells for the first batch. The manufacturer does plan to fix this on the following batch, but this may be 1-3 months away."

I'm fine with that honestly. In my opinion, it's more convenient to have SNES flash carts in universally fitting cartridge shells anyway.

besides I prefer the stock SGB boarder

All of the original Super Game Boy borders are on the Super Game Boy 2. You just have to put in a code to use them. Select the black border, exit the menu, then press LLLLR. Now all the borders will be the original SGB borders. To switch back to the SGB2 borders, just repeat the code.

Oh I forgot that input. But still it's not the same without using SGB enhanced boarders which load up on certain games which can be transferred onto other ones that do not have them. I think if the Pro has the reset button config it may or may not work like the other method worked.

Not even Goomba could do that but they were able to use the unique pallet trickery that the SGB does and replicate it almost but not accurately enough.

Anyway that said I am digging the new SD2SNES Pro idea/necessary project coming up but I do sympathize with the people who lack the cash to buy one or who have already mortgaged their home to buy the version of the SD2SNES that is already presently available for themselves, heh heh.  :P

Not my home but I did sell my carefully curated snes collection of about 24 of the best snes games for U$200 in late 2014 to be able to buy the SD2Snes revF. I don't regret it to this day.

Yeah, looking at the other thread on the forum regarding someone wanting to cut their PCB to get it to fit into their US shell, I'm not particularly happy about this. Why did they not think of this when designing the board? I bought transparent US shells last year so I can see the LED's clearly, and now I can't buy from the first batch because the board won't fit. ::)

Waiting likely isn't going to hurt you.  It's not like they have some super SD2SNES Pro exclusive updates ready to go the second the SD2SNES Pro is released.  You'll be able to wait a few months for the next batch to come out before there is likely to be any "Pro Exclusive" releases happening.

While i'm not 100% sure about this, I believe it's due to the tech used in the PCB. It may require an larger board in order to have everything work, and then slim it down overtime as it gets better via revisions.

I'm usually an early adopter. But it's just annoying because it's such a minor thing to overlook, and should be taken into consideration before going full steam ahead with production. Not everyone wants to use the EU/JP style shell, and having shells where you can't see the PCB (basing that on Krikzz' picture of the shell) kind of makes the LED's a little redundant. You have to take the cart out of its shell to seem them if there's a problem. It also now means there'll be a board revision.

I don't believe anyone ignored you. ikari said that it would fit into existing shells. He obviously didn't mean the US shell.

I just received my SD2SNES from SAG last week from Black Friday sale back in November. I just asked them about returning it and applying the credit directly towards the new model second batch revision (with NA case compatibility) and they are graciously willing to work with me! Currently rather impressed by their customer service.

While they are taking the shipping cost from the total paid, It was extremely easy to return my sd2snes store credit for the sd2snes pro. They even were nice enough after reading my note on the return to tell me that the motherboard was bigger and the shell wouldn't be the sd2snes one for one batch.

Ya, I specified I'm willing to wait for the delivery of the second batch until they can give me the specific case/color I want for my system. I want one that matches my new Super NT!

Yeah.  The guys over at Stone Age Gamer are REALLY great people, and their customer service is top notch.  I have never had any issues with them and have bought every single one of my flash carts through them.  (GB, GBA, N64, NES, SD2SNES).

To everyone who is returning to Stone Age Gamer, don’t do it yet.

I literally just got mine in yesterday after an eight week wait. The new cart was announced right as mine was being assembled. At first everything was fine. Then I was told I had to return the cart within two weeks because he didn’t want to sit on old stock as he’s still selling them. Completely understandable, but it sort of breaks the thirty day return window. So, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. So I asked if they can put one aside for me and just swap the shells with the second batch as he said the first batch won’t fit in NTSC shells and the second batch would but it will be another eight weeks to wait. Again, didn’t mind waiting another eight weeks or so(sixteen weeks in total) for the new cart as long as I knew I had one waiting for me. Only fair as I literally just got mine yesterday. Then I get an email saying that they will NOT put one on hold and that they’d send me an email when they are available to order. So basically, after waiting eight weeks for my cart, I have to play Russian Roulette with my new SD2SNES. If I send it back, I’m not guaranteed a new cart after sixteen total weeks of waiting. If I don’t, I’ll have a cart, but it’s obsolete. To say I’m pissed right now is an understatement. Looks like I’ll have to shell out another $200 for another SD2SNES cart when I just got one in.....
