everdrive flash carts...

Post by rolan » Wed Sep 12, 2012 3:19 am

So I got one of these for the pc engine and its the best 70 quid i ever spent! :D So want one for every console now... anyone else use these? I'm particularly interested in getting an n64 version, does anyone know if those work as well as the pc engine ones? How about the megadrive ones?

They are marvellous things for those of us that want to play those mega expensive games on there own hardware.

The N64 one is bloody great, but the way it saves in built save games is weird, the N64 has to be reset before turned off.

Mega drive one is awesome as it can run hacks (Sonic Megamix is great), 32x games (if you have a 32X), Master system (pause button on the cart) and can even be used as a region changer for the Mega CD

To hard to make apparently, Neogeo has to meany chips and it would end up being a £200+ thing if they did

I've got the Mega Drive one, plugged into a 32X which is plugged into a MultiMega - the all-in-one Sega unit! It's nice how it lets you structure the menus however you want as well - got all my games organised by genre. And as dprinny says, it's great for playing expensive games on the actual hardware.

Twinkle Tale, Mega Man, Eliminate Down, Alien Soldier, Chaotix, it's all there! Didn't know there was a PC-Engine one, might have to have a look into that.

I have Megadrive, SNES, GameGear and N64 versions and they are great.
The N64 version allows you to play NES games and the MD version also covers Master System games.
I'm moving house at the moment, but one of the first things I am going to buy when settled is the PC Engine version.

How much are the MD and Snes ones going for at the moment? And where is the best place to pick them up from?

I bought that one for £70. Then I asked for a refund and got it from retrogate for £54. :lol:

I made a quick vid.

A bit over £100 for the pair. Retrogate is the best place to go to (it's the maker's own store).

i too myself have a megadrive flash cart and their just brilliant and to play excelent fan made games like sonic 3 complete on orginal harware is just an awesome experiance although mine lost its master system switch at least you could fit it straight in the cart without butchering it. :D

Chuck the ROMs on and away you go as I remember. It's all packed away at the moment unfortunately.

Its cheaper than a NES flash cart.

On my shopping list (when I get the cash) is
2600 harmony cart
NES...............?
Master system (know its done on MD, but as MS one would be handy)

Might get a SNES everdrive as this Super UFO pro 8 is a bit annoying with its menus and 6 (or 8?) character names

Does anyone know if they make different region sized carts, so if I wanted one for my Japanese mega drive rather than my pal one, I have the choice?

Same goes for pc engine/tg16? Work on both systems?

Also what is the emulation like? Anyone done comparisons.

My biggest worry is that if I get one of these I'd never complete the collections I want to and end up selling games. Would save me a small fortune though.
