With my EZ Flash Omega DE, I haven't been able to get Mario & Luigi: Superstar Saga to work correctly. All of the colors are super messed up, as you can see in the screenshots attached. I've tried several different ROMs, including the two ROMs available in the No-Intro distribution, and they all have the same problem. Here are the MD5 checksums of the two No-Intro ROMs I've tried:

3b50b9f9e13e271ead33ee5a234650a9
4b1a5897d89d9e74ec7f630eefdfd435

Has anyone else seen this issue before? Any idea what might be causing it? In the meantime I've just been playing my original cartridge copy of M&L, but it would be nice to have everything on the EX Flash.

PS: Is there a forum thread for posting ROM issues with the EZ Flash? There are a couple other GBA games that I can't get working (tried different roms as well), and I haven't been able to find any information about these specific games.

This happens even when loading the game with “clean boot”. Out of curiosity, I decided to write the game to NOR, and when I boot the game that way it works properly. (I had another game as well, “Max Payne”, which would only load to a white screen. Writing it to NOR allowed the game to work properly)

I followed the instructions in the Repair Guide forum thread and tested the card in Safe Mode, but everything says “OK” with no errors. It doesn’t show an S98 error.

    Some things (like Super Famicom games) just feel right when you play them using the original hardware and a CRT

    Not so sure about that - the tendency for "graphics uber alles" tends to lead to very high power consumption

  • KenniesNewName @ KenniesNewName:
    If you look at what's now portability graphics are catching up to console quality

    Nintendy is a huge example of not everyone caring about powerful specs most that do will be hardcore PC players anyway

    The thing is that the IATA rules impose a pretty hard limit of 100Wh on battery sizes for lithium batteries - and it doesn't look like Li is going away soon

  • T @ trimesh:
    So if you want (say) 4 hours of runtime you need a maximum system-level power consumption of 25W

    Yeah but we already have AAA titles looking fine on tablet form 1080p displays

    For reference, the PS5 is rated at 350W and the Xbox series X at 275W - and that's console only, without any display

    Yeah probably - people on forums seem to care a lot, but they are heavily self-selected
