Re: [GUIDE/INFO] Flash Carts, ODE, and more!

So if I'm reading this right, if I go the cheaper route and get a super everdrive x5 I'll miss out on these heavy hitters:
Mega Man X2,3
Pilotwings
Super Mario Kart
Ballz 3D
Kirby Super Star
Mario RPG
Mario World 2
Star Fox

But most everything else should work well? Really I just want to play Chrono Trigger, Actraiser, and Harvest Moon (and maybe random off the wall stuff)

Correct, the Super ED X5 doesn't support any enhancement chips. Here's a list for reference...

But yeah, most everything else will work fine. Kinda sucks that there's a few really good games you'll miss out on, but the X5 is also really cheap right now on the official Everdrive store...

You could try and find an older flash cart that supports DSP, then at least you could play those games. The older Super Everdrive and SNES PowerPak could optionally have a DSP-1 chip installed to support those games. There was also a version of the Super Everdrive that supported all of the DSP chips, but I'm not sure how common it is to find that one second hand because it wasn't around as long.

All right, cool. I'm gonna give the X5 a try. Mario RPG is a definite loss but, dang, when I checked last year the X5 was 80 or 90 dollars (iirc). I like the current price for sure. Especially if it handles a good portion of the library.
