    I'm saying this due to the age in hardware.... my SNES / PS1 / GBA/ GBC all gotten destroyed when Hurricane Wilma came (2004) I do agree nothing beats playing the OG console but due to cost / maintenance it will be bound to break. I have to preserve my PS2 and use the emulator because I don't want it to die.

    I honestly never noticed the difference playing the SNES emulator or the gameboy ones but then again I havent played the original things almost 15 years ago.

    does this also halve battery time compared to a normal gba cart because it somehow draws too much power with is also killing systems occassionally?

    Was going to press like until I read $99.

    Also, can't it be made to run GBC and GB without emulation? Because don't GBAs rune GBC and GB games without emulation.

    The GB can run on the gba perfectly fine as you think but the flash cards are a whole nother story to have a 2 in one right now to support both krikzz would need to have the two boards in one cart can be done but cart would be massive think like the pokemon pinbal cartridge that had a AA battery in it and make a bit longer and wider. The whole reason is the way GBA and GB/C carts are laid out and mapped to how they can talk to each parts on the everdrive and the specialized pieces to get certain games running.

    Given the answer in the post above, I want that too.

    If I want GBC games I will use a GBC flash cart.

    I think the GBeverdrive x7 is 99$-120$ depending on the outlet like stoneage gamer or direct from krikzz, mostly like different shelsl or front decals sdcards too cause its price to vary when buy from other sellers. For the inevitable "Krikzz doesnt want to compete against himself" comments his sega everdrive x7 allows you too play master system roms on a genesis/megadrive (not emulated this goes for the 32x romsaswell if you own that addon in the first place) he is not afraid to implement it more of whether its possible and easily doable without making his cards tumors on the console.

    Response from Krikzz:

    To play GB/GBC in native mode on gba need:
    1. Some physical mechanism to switch mode. Mode actually depends of cartridge shell shape.
    2. Have a deal with multi voltage hardware (gba works at 3.3v, GBC at 5v)
    This all means large cart size, extra cost and power consumption

    Someone on GBATemp should try to collaborate with krikzz to make a GBATemp version, and give it away during a Patreon Backer's Raffle.

    I wish this mini design existed to begin with. My OG GBA X5 still sticks out of my DS Lite. But since MiSTer FPGA, I rarely use it anyway.

    Why is this $99? What advantages are there over an ancient M3? Seems to work just as well.

    1 Quality work Not from china.
    2 High compatibility within the 95-99% conservative estimate
    3 no need to patch the roms using dodgy software just drag and drop the raw roms into a sd card
    4 Real save memory types all compatible games will save properly they will then be copied to the SD card
    5 even the phat model has low power draw compared to the older flash cards meaning alot longer battery life
    6 RTC support for those that use it like pokemon.It is also 100% replaceable and all batterry saves are placed on SDcard like the rest
    7 Fast flashing of the rom it doesnt take 30 seconds to flash the rom from the sd card to the onboard rom chip.
    8 homebrew/emulators are bootable
    9 not advertised but rom hacks will work its an lesser talked about unofficial feature
    10 A good amount of OS updates a direct support forum to the maker and a good warranty,and program diagnosis roms to check all the major components if you feel like DIYing it should something break or just to give more info on the issue.

    Also for those wanting savestates planned on the X7 everdrive will have it unknown if what else he will add to that the gyro and light sensor has been mulled about but given he was able to shrink the X5 the x7 might not be as big as he feared it would with all the crazy things the GBA carts tacked on.

    The flash cart plays GBC games because it can. GBA is powerful enough to emulate GBC.

    I always wanted an EverDrive that wouldn't stick out the GBA or my DS Lite. Even though I own all the GBA games I actually want to play it would still be nice to have them all in one place. Likewise it would be much easier to use the GBA Pokemon distributions from this vs flashing my ancient Flash2Advance flash card.

    Tempted to get this at some point along with an Analogue Pocket when released, although hopefully i'll talk myself out of spending all that money by then lol.

    No I don't think so... compare prices of this two... I have few Everdrive products but 99$ - not thank you. Previously i had EZ-Flash IV microSD and after this years still works well... Omega is also good flashcart.

    I'm a bit confused.. what does the super Retro Advance adapter have to do with the GameBoy Player? Like, isn't that device meant for the SNES?
