Everdrive GB X7 possible to access menu with buttons?
« on: June 22, 2019, 09:05 PM »
Is it possible to access the in game menu via some means other than clicking the cartridge?
If not, would such a thing be possible to add via a firmware update?

No, the only way is pressing the cart button.

Likely it would just be easier to use the power button when on a super Nintendo, it seems a lot more easier that way just expect a lot of clicking sounds.

The power button isn't going to bring up the in game menu though, is it?

Having a physical button inside the cart is way less convenient than a button combo.
Not everyone uses an actual handheld to play Gameboy games.

I'm using a Wide Boy 64, and it will be a pain in the ass to have to get up and walk across the room every time I want to make a savestate.

Still waiting for Krikzz to comment.
Could a button combo trigger be added via firmware?

Yep it brings up the menu while pressing reset restarts the game you have previously played.

As the Super Gameboy can only load up the game if it isn't fully turned off, turning off and on your SNES brings you back to the menu.

This also applies to boarders on SGB enhanced games the device will always keep the boarder on until the device is turned off so likely if an in game button menu did exist kind of like how the SD2 SNES did it in the future you would likely be able to use the boarders from any game on any non enhanced game complete with its pallet set.

Dude, I'm talking about the in game menu, not the front end.

There were no feasible way to allow a button combo to work. Only a few games would work with a button combo approach, that is why Krikzz used a button on the cartridge.

Understood.
Thanks for the explanation.

I'll see if I can come up with a hardware solution of some kind...
