Will we ever see an update to the MegaED firmware?
« on: September 12, 2013, 11:52 AM »
Hiya!

Being an owner of the MegaED for quite some time now I must admit that I feel  kind of forgotten as a buyer of this cart.
There are several compatibility issues as discussed in the threads here, there is the lack of eeprom saves support and ofcourse the huge FPGA that does almost nothing atm.
I am not complaining about the fm/whatever lack of potential fpga features, but eeprom saves? that's a big disappointment. Even the simpler everdrive-MD supports them and it's almost half the price...
The way I see it, as-is, you are paying double for instant loading, worse compatibility and in-game-menu/savestates that work with half the games (that is not the megaed's fault though)

C'mon Krikzz , fix the compatibility so it's at least on par with the ED-MD....  ;D  8)

Yes, today it was updated in fact  8)

Not sure if it fixes much though, have to wait on word from others about that.

I do feel you though, I thought this was the all in one super device but so far I'm yet to be impressed. I'm even more upset that as you say, aside from instant loading the everdrive MD seems to be more compatible!

I would personally like some kind of 32x pass-thru so that I don't have to disconnect it if I want to play a master system game or ingame menus, it's not lazyness I just don't want to damange the cables and the cart slots :(
Not sure it's possible.

Also, as many others think - a GUI makeover would be awesome!

wow, what are the odds?  ;D
I wonder what is fixed though...

also what really needs a gui upgrade is the Master-ED IMHO, something similar to the Turbo/Famicom carts, it looks terrible by the rest of the ED standards...
I don't really mind the gui on MEGA-ED, it is good enough for me

EDMD does not support eeprom. sram version of rom is the only way to play eeprom games with any everdrive (md or mega)

really? I was always under the impression that the EDMD supported eeprom... must have been thinking about the neoflash cart then

thanks for the update, hope the future brings more features
