Everdrive N8 & N8 Pro Status Updates



Krikzz has posted a couple of updates relating to the Everdrive N8 and N8 Pro Flash/ROM carts.  Initially, Krikzz has released a beta “auto-boot” firmware for developers that want to test their games on an Everdrive as if it have been a true cartridge:  https://krikzz.com/pub/assistance/var/EDFC-autoboot.zip

To auto-boot, merely rename your current “EDFC” folder and add that 1.  Then decide on your game and it’ll auto-boot straight to it from that point on.  In order to access the menu’s once again, delete the autoboot EDFC folder and boot with the original once again.  It is not as uncomplicated as adding a toggle, but in my opinion is great for dev’s searching to test or demonstrate their games in an original NES or Famicom cartridge shell with no possessing to burn their personal chips & custom cart!

Krikzz also confirmed that he’s presently concentrating his NES mapper efforts on the upcoming N8 Pro, but will port all mapper updates back to the original N8 just after he’s completed.  That suggests the only compatibility distinction among the two ought to be ROM’s that are more than the original N8’s memory size.  This is quite amazing, as the N8 is currently a fantastic solution that is been supported for years  The reality that is it’ll nevertheless get updates even just after the N8 Pro is released is a testament to Krikzz’ buyer service.

Lastly, Krikzz confirmed you can have up to 100 save state slots per game on the upcoming N8 Pro and every single will have a date and timestamp on it.  I picture this is fantastic for speedrunners who usually practice distinct components of the game.
