Evercade

I got a mystery Mega Drive cart a few weeks ago (some of you may have seen the video) and Arcus Odyssey was hidden on it.

 

Be really good to have a proper version of it, I liked the look of that but (no spoiler) the version on the cart isn't.... great.

 

Outside that this is what I love they've done alongside the obvious collections.  Stuff I either can't have played or (tanglewood / Quest arrest etc) would be prohibitively expensive to.

This is brilliant news. Not only have you got some really interesting curios, but some of those cost a bomb. I regretted selling my copy of Gairies but not enough to pay the prices it currently goes for. Now I don't need to. Here's hoping they add proper emulation scaling like has been promised. Even @Sketchmight buy one then!

Unlikely. I have a 60Hz Mega Drive with RGB SCART running on a Sony Trinitron CRT with Mega Ever Drive Pro. Does it get better than that?

 

The lack of proper scaling options seems like such a schoolboy error. Seriously, 1:1 correct aspect ratio scaling is not weird, or strange, or difficult. It's honestly simpler than any other scaling; it's simpler than anti-aliasing or non-correct scaling that blends pixels.

On the Facebook groups there have been some previews of new scaling & scanline options - wasn’t clear if that was for VS or both.

Recently picked up the Codemasters release. Some fun stuff and it's great to have Cannon Fodder on the go but bloody hell, the last bit of CJ The Elephant, where you have to survive a volcano throwing out countless rocks at you. Bloody hell, did they seriously expect anybody to finish it? :lol:

The *last* bit? Even the first level is impossible.

Oh don't get me wrong, without a ridiculous use of save states I wouldn't have got anywhere with it. Most of these Codemasters games on the NES seem a sight harder than their Spec counterparts I grew up with. I imagine age and the simple speed of both machines makes a difference but yes, very much being taken to school by most of these!

Has anyone bought an EverSD? Seem to be going for $40, sorely tempted for being able to have a mixed portable and tabletop rig when the VS comes out.

 

 

Comments on that video say that they don’t work with the latest firmware.

Not sure I’m behind the idea of these. It’s not like with the Everdrive things where you’re playing games on a dead system.

 

But no, I’m not interested.

I agree. Although the Evercade isn’t really for me (I own the handheld version and haven’t used it in months) I think it’s price point for the hardware & games is great value.

I wouldn't say it's necessarily screwing over the evercade to have a way to side load retroarch onto it.

 

It's just a bit weird and something I'd imagine the core userbase have no interest in doing.

 

The intent is unlikely to be to side load Retroarch, not least because an Evercade+Evercade SD is comfortably more than an RG351 that can do more.   That's the convenient don't sue us story.

 

The intent is to side load Evercade carts you didn't purchase.

Isn’t the role of almost every everdrive purchased to load games that you didn’t purchase?


 

 

I guess the difference here is that the Evercade is an indie business that's seen as supporting the retro scene with "new" releases, whereas most everdrive carts are just used for loading up old Megadrive or SNES ROMs, right?

but then we are back into those old SNES and MegaDrive games still being sold via Sega and Nintendo. With their classic mini consoles and compilations / e-stores.

 

to me, it’s the same. 
 

you either accept everdrives or you don’t. But it’s a personal decision.


play games how you want. If someone wants to use an everSD then more power to them.
