        He’s saying he wants a clone of the X7 to be made so he doesn’t have to reset to save. Current clones are based on the cheaper, old Everdrives that needed to reset to save.

        I guess you only need to press reset when you’re finished playing right? So you essentially need to get into the habit of pressing RESET -> Power Off when you’re done as opposed to just pressing Power Off?

          Basically. It’s a minor inconvenience, especially given the consoles these carts are for need you to touch a nearby spot on the system to power off anyway. Same deal with Everdrive GBX7 vs GBX5.

          X7 costs twice as much as an X5 because it has a real-time clock (only about a dozen games use it, like two of which left Japan, both of which you have no real reason to play on original hardware outside of nostalgia purposes, all of which have workarounds in-game in case your battery is dead or missing), save-states (at that point why aren’t you emulating?) and an in-game menu (even less convenient than just resetting the cart). It’s fluff to make it seem "more complete" but isn’t worth shit. The GBX7 can’t even claim it covers all games because it lacks Kirby Tilt n Tumble’s gyroscope.

          The reset-to-save is bad in that you can’t save once the battery dies.
          Except you can just buy a replacement battery for way cheaper and it’ll work fine.

            I think you’re confused. There is no battery on the SRAM, that’s why you have to reset to save so that the SRAM stays powered while the ED boots and commits the contents of the SRAM to a file on the SD. The ones with the battery ALSO only commit when the menu boots but thanks to the battery they can hold your saves even if you hard powered off and then commit on first boot. When the battery dies you can just revert to reset-to-save until you get a chance to replace it.

          Lmao.
          Even a stingy gamer spends ~$200 for 20 games. If you want better quality than emulation and you’ve got more than 20 N64 games you want to play again, an Everdrive is reasonable if not cheap. Even an insanely frugal person could afford flashcarts for the systems that need them.

          Related question, what systems does Ganker swear by on playing via flashcarts? I feel like SNES emulation is so precise that it’s not worth bothering with physical anymore, but Megadrive and N64 absolutely need it.

            N64 is the only system (that ive owned) that a flashcart is a must. I have one for the sega genesis just because there’s a lot of good games for it, but emulation is just fine

              It’s fine if you want to play a game from start to finish, but Genesis sound emulation will forever be bad and is the main reason to own one if you enjoy the music on that console.

                  I guess really, you need at least one of the Model 1s before the last revision of it as well if you want the best quality. That VA7 + Model 2s just don’t do it justice.

                    I have a VA5 which is in the safe zone for sound chips. growing up we had a model 2, which when plugged into a shitty tv with coax you dont really notice the sound but when i hooked it up the stereo system and heard how awful it was, that was when i had to find a model 1

              Pretty much all Nintendo consoles are prohibitively expensive to collect for by now unless you’re really lucky and frugal. SD Gecko or a Wii with Nintendont is a must for Gamecube too, the only console I can think of with even more ungodly-expensive games is the Saturn.

                  have they updated SWISS to be able to load from the expansion port yet? that was the only thing preventing me from using theSD2SP2.

                  I have a Gecko modded Cube and a SWISS minidvd.

      I don’t understand why reset-to-save is considered such a problem? Do you think you need to reset your console EVERY time you save or some shit? You just need to reset back to the menu ONCE just before you switch the console off to commit the SRAM to SD. That’s it.
      The difference with the X7 is that the battery allows this commit to be deferred until the console is powered on again, it’s still fundamentally the same process. Nothing is committed to SD card until you get back to the menu.

      Resetting to save is based, it lets you cheese Majora’s Mask’s shitty save system so you don’t have to start a new 3 day cycle if you fuck up one of the sidequests.

      so.. the advantages of emulation are being able to get everything for free, plus enhancement patches, fan translation, save states etc
      while the advantage of buying real cartridges is the satisfaction of owning and holding in your hands real cases, manuals and other miscellanous merchandise, and neatly lining them up on a shelf

      why would you ever need something like that? if i feel like playing the game i’ll just download it on my hacked switch, if i feel like using real hardware i just buy the damn thing on ebay
      i don’t understand

        I think they are cool for some things that are difficult to do with emulation. The Everdrive GBA for example can interract with most GBA accessories including ones that are for the Gamecube/Wii and has hardware specs very similar to real carts so it is good for devs. A different one from China, the EZ Flash Omega Definitive Edition, has the ability to also interract with the DS and has more memory than a standard cart, which is good for romhacks. Both also have the ability to patch an emulation .gba file with a different rom and flash it to the cart (for example NES rom gets written to Goomba .gba file and gets flashed to cart).

            Depends on what you want to do and your price point. Everdrive GBA is a good build quality that will last long, but is more expensive than the standard EZ Flash Omega. EZ Flash Omega Definitive Edition can be about the same price on some websites as the Everdrive GBA. The standard EZ Flash Omega comes with both a GBA and a DS filler shell and has dual RTC. Everdrive GBA has a bug where if you play 2 different games with RTC, the clock will reset, but it does have a battery socket for easy replacement. EZ Flash Omega you have to wait 5-10 seconds before turning off the GBA after saving because it wants to write to the SD card slowly (the data may get corrupted if you turn it off too fast), whereas the Everdrive GBA and the EZ Flash Omega Definitive Edition save to the hardware SRAM only and will write to SD card when on the main menu again so you do not have to remember to wait. Personally I think the Everdrive GBA is the best one, but the Definitive Edition is good too. But if you just want to fuck around the standard EZ Flash is fine as long as you remember the weird save thing.
