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.
I'm going to do the same.

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 Is there any good reason to upgrade to pro if the outdated pcb has already 99.53718471034729% of compability with entire SNES library?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.
I agree.

Offer us options like paypal or hell even old fashioned mail order ffs.
Or Bitcoin ;)

What is the error screen that appears?
We must embrace pain and burn it as fuel for our journey.

These videos explain some of the things that can be fixed or added, and the reason the revision III is happening anyways.

Smoke monster  also talks about how he’s sold previous revisions on eBay for nearly full price, and had his upgrades only cost him just around the cost of shipping.

Im planning to sell of my SD2SNES and buy a Pro.

Follow the link with the download section on the SD2SNES pro, and I can only see firmware for the original SD2SNES. Are they sharing the same firmware? Cant find anyting regarding the SD2SNES Pro on the site.

They do NOT have the same firmware.
A firmware for the pro will be on sd2snes.de website very soon.
Mega Everdrive x5, Everdrive 64 v3, Everdrive N8, N8 Pro, SD2SNES, Joyzz.

Ye,  thats what I guessed since its another HW platform. The thing is that it did not mention anyting on sd2snes.de about the pro version and they already have the pro "in stock".

I think before I do anything, I will let other people beta test the new one for me.

I'd really like to hear from people how well the save states work once it has been out for a bit.

It's only been mentioned in interviews.
It is not on the list of features at launch.

So yeah. Probably a repeat of the Super FX promise.

Mine shipped today. Usually takes a week at least, usually two weeks to get here from Ukraine.

ikari only said save states with sound were possible now with the larger FPGA, he never said they'd be available and fully functioning at launch.

Would be nice to implement the "non sound" variant, just as an option.

Like if you save state just after a boss, often the sound reloads again when the new level begins.

Think this is absolutly better than nothing.

The non-sound is a beta with the current SD2SNES, so ikari won't have anything to do with that with regard to an official firmware release until it's finished. It'd be up to the guy who created the save state firmware to compile a standalone beta firmware for the Pro.

That I know, but as a feature in the official a non sound save state would be nice.
Since the big thing is to get the sound working correctly it could be more than OK to get the non sound method on the official branch meanwhile.
