This Mega Everdrive Pro is an awesome piece of hardware. In addition to playing Megadrive roms, it also plays Virtua Racing (the only SVP game ever made), Sega Master games with FM support (for those compatible games) and Mega CD games. Also, so called MSU (aka Mode 1) patched games work flawlessly. More info about MSU here.
Highly recommended piece of hardware, no more having to mess with aging hardware, just fire up your Genesis / Megadrive console and you’re good to go.
It’s been a while since I last purchased an Everdrive product. So far I have the Everdrive N8, the original Mega Everdrive and the Turbo Everdrive v1. All three of them are awesome and still running like champs.
Like many others I’m sure, the main motivation on getting the Mega ED Pro is the Sega CD support. Being able to play CD games on real hardware without having to mess with my aging CD unit sounds great.
This, like the others before it, is a great quality product.
Professionally made. Comes nicely packaged and with a nice detailed manual printed in full color.
Another plus is, the creator, Krikzz, now uses the Amazon fulfillment center to help distribute his products in the US. That will help make the Everdrives more easily attainable than before.
Besides being able to emulate a Sega CD unit via an advanced FPGA, this unit allows us to play Virtua Racing (SVP chip) and Master System games (those that support it off course) with FM sound (YM2413) . 32x roms will run fine provided that ugly mushroom is hooked up.
Can’t wait to try it, possibly Monday, when I’m back home.
Update 03/30/21 I was able to try it for a brief moment today and I think it is great already. It is unbelievable how all that magic fits into a regular size Genesis cartridge.
