I am one of those ppl that grabbed the Neoflash cart when it got released, seemed so great at the time... haven't really used it for much except the ~20 games I burned in it...
So I checked neoflash page, seen a new manager update and a new menu update and basically I formatted my card (I was getting some strange errors with roms not loading too) and installed the new stuff.
But I can't get Monster World IV working as before
I have naturally tried :
Monster World IV (J) [f2][T-Eng_DeJap+Demiforce].gen which is hacked 64kbit sram save support
and Monster World IV (Japan) [T-En by Michele Di Somma v2.2].gen which I prefer to play because it seems it has some bugs fixed.
Neither work. Force 64kb sram on menu, the neoflash megadrive menu states they are using 8kb sram but nothing gets saved. Ever. And if you try to save a 2nd time (after the bogus 1st one) all you get is a black screen of death.
Since then I downgraded to the previous manager version and deluxe menu 2.5 (which loads way faster on classic 512mbit cards btw) , still nothing! no matter what settings you enforce , sram is broken. But I noticed something strange:
if you press B on this screen the game loads and sram is broken in the ways described above. BUT
if you press A on the game, go to the above options screen and just press B without changing anything at all, sram works perfect
Anyone has any idea why is this happening and how to get rid of that? Tried the neoflash forums but had no response there. And now the forums are down meh.
Is there a workaround/trick to make this work as expected?
thanks for any tips!
