Yea, I have the same one. Mine came with a big set of Rom. I think they’re copies of an older version that doesn’t play some games, but I never checked.

Yeah, mine had an 8GB SD card with all PAL/NTSC roms on it already.  I loaded up my own patched copy of Terranigma (which was in the photo).

It won't play any of the DSP1 or FX chip games.  So no Pilot Wings, Mario Kart, Mario RPG, or Star Fox.  Otherwise I think it plays everything worth playing.

That's pretty great for $33 shipped!

Actually.... mine came with a Mario Kart rom that worked.  Or at least it booted and the first stage seemed ok.  SFX games are out but you might want to try the dsp games.

You know, I just violated my own pet peeve of "why didn't you just try it first before you posted about it..."

I'll give that a shot and report back.

Well, I cracked open the cartridge to take a look at the PCB and it's been redesigned slightly.  No empty sockets for the DSP1 or clock chips.

Pretty much looks like this, except the left side isn't there.



Pilot Wings will boot up and then lock when you start a mission.  Mario Kart doesn't make it past the Nintendo logo.

Oh well.
