So i have been testing this card with a few games and so far all the ones i tested run without issues ( very clean and nice)
I haven't tested any cheats because well there are no cheat option as far as i know ( or was told) but since the firmware can be updated maybe it will support it in the feature. Card is just drag and drop for game files i only created folders to make it more organized
This card lies somewhat in the same ''playing'' field like el cheapo, however this card claims to support bigger game sizes and save sizes than BOTH the everdrive and el cheapos ( 1.9) card.
El cheapo does NOT ( at least the version i have: 1.9) have RTC function, the everdrive from krikzz does . Also 64 megabits is the same as 8 megabyte for game size , please do not confuse this as a higher game size as it has the same game size claim as the everdrive.
If cheats are essential to you it doesn't appear the JR supports them now BUT that may change later on
The games i tested so far :
Donkey Kong land
Battle arena toshiden
Zelda Links awakening DX
Pokemon Crystal ( kind of mandatory for RTC function and it does seem to work)
tobu tobu girl DX
All ran without issues, each game booted/loaded instantly without any wait
The transparent shell pictured here is NOT for sale ( or the one that will be distributed)
When and if you buy your unit , your shell would look more ''frosty'' color like the one on the official page ( link below)
The menu is quite simplistic : saves, games, a section to set time and a help section ( that gives a link to ezflash website) , since no cheats so probably nothing more needed?
The battery is replaceable so that's good if you can't or don't want to solder , kind of the same as the omega if you own one
The sd card slot has a spring mechanism just like el cheapos and krikzz everdrive
My personal stance on the spring mechanism is i don't like them on any cards, but since you don't really take these out i suppose it doesn't really matter.
I would have preferred if this card had no spring like the ez flash omega, if you cut your nails short its kind of hard to take out the sd card.
Unfortunately i don't have a backlit gameboy or gameboy color, or even a backlit gameboy advance. I do however have a gb colour ( kong feng version) and unfortunately the Jr did not work on that unit even running off the power adapter ( card gets a memory read error). El cheapo's card works on my gb colour and even the everdrive clone, however the everdrive clone i own is a pile of garbage because it freezes randomly sometimes and once my rechargeable batteries go under 75% it turns off.
I tested the card in a non backlit gba and gameboy advance sp, and works on both without issues.
I dropped my non backlit game boy advance unit while i was running some games and i thought it had damaged the save or the card but as soon as i turned it back on it started creating some sort of save of my last game play so it seemed it did not corrupt anything.
The only game i played for an extended period of time ( 1.5 hrs) was Pokemon crystal to test to any issues and RTC and during that time frame i encountered no issues at all ... the game ran flawless.
It would be nice if this card added cheat features in the feature if possible
Ill test some other things in the next couple of days as time allows ( and edit post) .
So far i feel this card is better than el cheapos , and if cheats are added in the feature seems like it can potentially be as good as the official everdrive.
I am a little disappointed that it didn't work with my gb colour though but then again most other gb flashcarts have issues with it.
Just also recently tested this on a SNES super gameboy , the card works but its finicky.
My snes ( north american version) and supergameboy is over 2 decades old so not sure if that has anything to do with it but i tried an original gameboy game and it worked instantly on that while i had to fiddle with the ez flash cartridge.
When i power on the ez flash card on the super gameboy for the snes system it would just get a pure black screen. Sometimes it would get random scan lines and then sometimes it would just say supergameboy with a black screen. What seem to solve most of the issue was as soon as i would flip the ''power'' switch up on the snes i would press the reset button on the ez flash jr card ( middle section) and this prompted the card to boot into the menu and commence to work.
I tried to replicate the above issue 5 times and it would work 70% of the time, and when it did work the games played fine ( at least the 3 i tried; donkey kong land, battle arena toshiden, tobu tobu girl ).
I also forgot the super gameboy did not play GBC games , i was wondering why i got messages to use a GBC system but then i remember the super game boy player only plays gameboy games.
Feel free to ask or request anything to test and i will give it a try
