    I think I made the right choice in getting this when I did, unfortunately, I have to wait till the second wave (March 1st), before I get it. Nevertheless, a flashcart may not be needed.

    Ah okay, that clears that up :P And no, I don't have mine yet, will be a couple of weeks, I was debating on flashcarts, but now I may not need one. Only downside is there's no Super FX, SA-1, etc support, given how it runs them from the carts. Will it be added, who knows, I hope so.
     
  2. I doubt this will have downgrade protection lol.

    The SD2SNES is nice to have for the expansion chips it does support, but it's not a total solution anyway. What I really have enjoyed with the SD2SNES is the superior function ... instant loading, SMU-1, in-game hooks to reset the game or return to menu. I bought a Yoshi's Island cart and still need to pick up a SMRPG cart - those are the expansion chip games the SD2SNES can't play that I want the most. I'm hopeful for a future jailbreak version with expansion chips incorporated (and who knows what other cores may come), but worst case scenario just look through the actual list of expansion chip games and there really aren't that many that are absolute must-haves.


    What did you do about controllers? 8bitdo SN30? I'll probably order one to match the console, but I've got 6 or 7 Super Fami controllers in great condition and a couple extension cables, so I don't really need the wireless. At least, not more than one.



    Me too. Just ordered it a while ago, and obviously I do have an SD2SNES. The jailbreak still was the thing that convinced me though, cuz I believe this means there'll be more to come to make the Super NT a great value. The big question, obviously, is whether we get the NES core. I'm betting on yes - anyone who was willing to pay $450 for a NT Mini probably has already done so. If Analogue wants the Super NT to really sell going forward, what better way than to let the NES core leak out too? Might be a while, but I think it'll happen.

    What do you suggest, that we never upgrade the firmware? People say it's pretty hard to brick this thing, but at the same time I want ROM loading, ugh.

    I want the SD2SNES, it's too bad other chips were never added on, despite being hinted at. And the 200 dollar price tag is a bit out of my range for some time. Controllers, I still have a few Snes controllers that work, oddly enough. Unless I can find someone on the Temp who has a flashcart for Snes...yeaaaaaah, not happening.
     
  5. What I mean is like the Game pads I would bet my money on you can just flash what ever version of the firmware you want onto the console... up or down.

    *Sigh* I'll wait for an official guide on this, if there ever is one. Don't want to brick it since I want ROM loading.
     
  7. Then ask the devs, why ask people who don’t even own one on here?

    Because I never get replies from their official Twitter.

    Edit: The videos are simple, put the firmware on the SD root, flash console,
    load ROMs. Good XD

    This is great news. I'd buy one today if the Classis version was in stock.

    Edit: Ok, Ok, I gave in and ordered one today (2018-02-16) in the Black case, US $213.56 all in with shipping. Says it'll ship on March 1st. If it works as good as we all hope I'll just pick up another one in the Classic case when available and then sell the Black case one to someone in my area. Happy with being able to load everything (ALMOST) off the SD card & looking forward to everything this will eventually do.

    I ended up buying an SD2SNES anyway. So far, I'm super happy with the Super NT. It's incredible.

    Oh sure, you got yours already >.> I paid before the second shipment and it's still "processing" at the UPS facility in Nevada. Afraid to ship it out much?

    I'll be answering any questions. Going to be jumping on the flash bandwagon if anyone has any requests or something that was not asked in the videos.

    Edit 1:
    - The initial flash did not like my 64GB SDXC microSD>SD adapter card. Flashed it with the 2GB SD card that came with a 3DS.
    - Now trying to see if it was just the flash file and going to try the roms on both the same SDXC card, but I know it'll probably work with the normal SD card for the initial flash.

    Edit 2:
    - The micro SDXC says it is not mountable (Yes, FAT32). So that is out of the picture. Ill end up buying a bigger SD card, though I still have no documentation or anything about the max size this thing can hold.

    - Overall, besides my issue with the SDXC microsd card, I love it. Only played a bit of a few major first party games. A lot of Konami games started up correctly. If I ran into any expansion chip issues, the loader would tell you it's not supported.

    Once I have time, I'll do a good sweep of games and actually finish some.

    Only issue I think I had was Phalanx. I never played the game, but the audio of that one, specifically, was "tingy"? No bass or anything behind many of the sound effects.

    It's a great combo (Super NT + SD2SNES). With the hotkeys for the SD2SNES plus the hotkey to the settings menu for the Super NT, you never need to get off your ass. Reset game, change to a different game, tweak display settings even mid-game ... its a beautiful thing.

    I've been trying to find out the hotkey for the SD2SNES. I know the SuperNT is Down + select, right? I have the flashcart, but I've yet to get my console; it's still in UPS limbo at the facility the next state over, starting to run out of patience XD

    My Super NT was delivered today. I have a wife and daughter (older son is in USAF now) so had to do the family time thing but I still got a couple hours in on the Super NT, mostly experimenting. Yes, Down+select will bring up the settings menu mid-game. Very nice capability for seeing the effect of vid setting changes. Make sure to pause first lol. "Select" alone will close the menu and return to game. If you engage down+select again, it returns to the same place in the menu. You don't have to navigate to the tweak you want every time. Nice.

    As for the SD2SNES, here you go. I really only use the first two though.

    L+R+Select+Start Reset game
    L+R+Select+X Reset to sd2snes menu
    L+R+Start+B Disable cheats
    L+R+Start+A Enable cheats
    L+R+Start+Y Permanently disable in-game hooks (in case they interfere with game operation).
    L+R+Start+X Temporarily disable in-game hooks (~10 seconds - if you need to get past a glitch but don't want to lose in-game buttons)

    Sweet, thanks :P I ordered before the second wave cutoff, and it "shipped" yesterday, but is still apparently processing. The UPS facility is in the next state over from mine and it's starting to piss me off that they're taking their time processing the order, unless UPS doesn't update that much.

    I placed my order on Feb 18, so there was still plenty of time before the second wave started shipping.

    Did you get the one with purple by any chance? I got the black one.

    Yeah, and I just checked the UPS site and it's now just leaving Las Vegas, apparently *sigh* I guess they were swamped with orders.
