Hi Roadkill

i was wondering if i could ask a quick question regarding upgrading/downgrading. i have been having a problem with both on my console. i have started another thread with the details so i wont repeat it all here, but i was wondering what you use for loading the firmware? eg Everdrive OS combination/any tricks im missing ect. no matter what i can't upgrade or downgrade it just fails the integrity check. i have a PAL system so the 3.01 firmware will hopefully solve the glitching problem i am having i prefer that even if i have to live with the palette selection that comes with it.

any help in this would be greatly appreciated

Paul

PS thanks for the firmware bundle


You're welcome.

There's no tricks to it, I just simply use an official krikzz everdrive and select whichever update I want to upgrade/downgrade to and it works the same as updating it. I tried helping out another user on here that had the same problems you are mentioning but he said he was using a China EverDrive clone. The Chinese clone everdrives cause problems when trying to flash the Hi Def NES firmware, you must use official krikzz everdrive.

Regards.

Hi

Thanks for your response. it seems i'm doing things correct so there must be some other issue that is preventing the update from working. as you mention i did see the posts regarding the clone everdrive. i can confirm that mine is a genuine cart, i purchased it directly for krikzz's website. At least i know that what im doing is correct so i will hunt further to figure out whats going wrong. if i figure it out i will update with the solution.

the only thing i can think to do now is reverse the region unlock mod and if that doesn't work try another motherboard.

Thanks again for your help

Paul

Lacking all else, you could ask around and see if someone is willing to make you a dedicated MMC3 cart with the rom on it.

The high def nes has always seemed a bit touchy because the bus signals on the nes are a bit of a mess from revision to revision. Combine this with the everdrive not always doing things the "right" way (or so I've been told in the past, this might've been fixed) as far as the fpga code goes, and things get a bit messy. Using a dedicated cart with the rom on it bypasses all of this, and makes it fairly straightforward.

edit: MMC3 not NROM

Hi

yes i have thought of making a dedicated cart. i just got a hold of a powerpak so i will try that, just waiting on a CF card. failing that i will make a dedicated cart. this is something i am capable of doing myself :)

thanks again and i will update once i figure this out for anyone that comes across the same problem.

Hi

Thought i would post an update on the issue i was having. It seems that my Hi Def NES, motherboard and Everdrive combination did not like one another. i got a hold of a powerpak cart and boom updated immediately with no issues. I have been playing SM Bros 3 for 1/2 hour and no graphical glitches with the new firmware. i can finally enjoy my NES again so happy.

Thanks for all your help here

Happy Gaming

Paul

Any luck with using a PowerPak?

I have to admit, the new color palettes can look real nice on my Samsung HDTV when it's set to Dynamic color temperature. I've become lazy at constantly having to swap back and forth between the "Movie" color temperature for my Hi-Def NES and "Dynamic" color temperature for everything else, so the new color palettes do help with getting rid of the neon green/yellowish and other ugly, oversaturated colors on "Dynamic" with the V2.25 palettes. I upgraded only up to V3.00 beta though, since 3.01 breaks some more games on composite output. I have to admit that the FDS sounds are better despite no Metroid door sound (I guess I just have to live with it) and VRC6 sounds much better too, the audio altogether seems more accurate.

Hi

yes the powerpak worked perfectly updated to 3.01. i will live with any of the issues on the 3.01 firmware as its better than constant glitching :P thanks for all the advice
