Hmm, Stone Age Gamer is going to offer trade-ins on older models.  That's interesting, although I'm not sure I want to dump my old cart to be honest.  Unless the new hardware proves substantially better, I'll go with what I know absolutely works for now.

Only thing is they said the revision of PCB may affect the trade-in value.  I asked if having a Deluxe from them would matter, they said they would consider.
Yeah, I saw that.  Mine's a older revision (ordered in 2014, I think), one of the ones that needs a fix for the MSU-1 volume levels.  I've only briefly dabbled with MSU-1 stuff, and outside of some small "gee whiz" factor, it's not really an attraction for me.  Plus, the volume boost, although not perfect, seemed good enough for me.

@relik how can it ship with firmware already on there if they aren’t providing sd cards ?

What do you mean? Krikzz never provided SD cards with anything. Firmware will be on the cart already because it would have been needed for testing after it was assembled. And if we do need firmware on the SD card then it'll be provided on the website after the first cart gets shipped. There's no need to have it up now because nobody has an SD2SNES Pro yet.

I've got so many SD2SNES's already plus both versions of Krikzz's Super Everdrive carts one with the original long loading screen and the other with the alternative one.

I don't know if I will upgrade to the Pro on my birthday in 4 months time with no firmware updates or the SDD1 implementation available yet but I guess with that 4 month gap things may progress to my likings so only time will tell ^^

I'd think not, especially if there's going to be future updates that the original SD2SNES won't be able to handle. They'd ship with the latest firmware available already on it, anyway. No need to list any firmware until there's an update.

And if we do need firmware on the SD card then it'll be provided on the website after the first cart gets shipped. There's no need to have it up now because nobody has an SD2SNES Pro yet.

so your saying if you remove the following from your sd card on your sd2snes in the sd2snes folder it still works.... firmware.img, menu.bin and the fpga bit files?

you will find it doesnt work.......so how can it ship with firmware already installed?  They will need to provide links for the new firmware for the pro version

I officially give up on trying to order this damn thing from the krikzz website.

I've contacted my credit card company twice already after supposedly being authorized to make the purchase the first time only to have the second time I've called them fail as well.

I've tried using firefox and IE browsers and deleting all crap that was stored on them beforehand and still no dice.

Krikzz you need to offer alternative ways of buying stuff from you instead of just that crappy eservice whatever it is.

Offer us options like paypal or hell even old fashioned mail order ffs.

What you've got now just isn't cutting it.  >:( :'(
krikzz products I own: SD2SNES, Joyzz, Everdrive GB X7, Everdrive GBA X5, Mega Everdrive X7, Everdrive 64 v3, Everdrive N8, Turbo Everdrive v2, Master Everdrive X7.

THere is a save states add-on for current SD2SNES. I would bet the ones who made it will update it to include support for the Pro as well, if ones making the official firmware don't add it to future update themselves. It might take longer for it to be implemented to work for special chip games as well on the pro (something that's currently not possible wit the standard).

MicroSD.



That seems really weird for a cartridge as big as it shows. I can understand the Everdrive GB/GBA's using that micro SD implementation as a regular SD reader with a micro in it would take up too much space and the extra chips wouldn't fit inside it.

But the great thing the SD2SNES had over that idea was the spring function from the Gameboy Everdrives and that the micro SD could fit into a SD card reader so you could easily take it out and put it in again.

Also I'd hate to say it but if a normal wider slot for the spring and SD couldn't be implemented at least they could have done it the same way as the Super Everdrive though the chances of getting it pushed down too much and picking it out heavily increased.

There is some kind of firmware on them because if you take out the SD card and try to turn it on, it still brings up a version of the menu, and gives you a warning that you are missing a memory card. Showing a version of the menu + warning would require some kind of firmware.

I dont care about neither sgb / sgb2 implementation nor msu-1 "sound chip" which actually is a higan invention. Is there any good reason to upgrade to pro if the outdated pcb has already 99.53718471034729% of compability with entire SNES library? As long as ikari_01 keep the firmware updated for both versions i think it just would be a waste of money upgrading to pro.
