Retrogate Store: SD2SNES - Flash Cart for Super Nintendo with SD slot and USB

Hello Skooter Blog readers. Today I talk about SD2SNES, I gained na Retrogate Store. The SD2SNES is a special cartridge of Super Nintendo (also known as flash cart), instead of the ROM, recorded only once, uses RAM where games (ROM images of games) can be loaded from an SD card. With this you can play all the games of Super Nintendo using a single cartridge. There is emulation, is the original hardware in your Super Nintendo running the original game code. I have spoken here in Skooter Blog about Mega Everdrive, that does exactly the same function, only for the Mega Drive. Then I recommend reading that article, before proceeding.

When you turn on the Super Nintendo with SD2SNES, is presented in a menu screen where the games present on the SD card can be chosen. Chosen the game, everything works identically to the original cartridge. Furthermore, there are some extra advantages, how can run games from other regions, even if there are software locks. The cartridge itself uses Japanese Format, do Super Famicom, but also has holes that allow connecting it to the Super Nintendo US or Brazilian of Playtronic, which are the most common in Brazil. Mine is the US and the SD2SNES it works perfectly. Who do question the cartridge in the US format can choose to buy the SD2SNES na Stone Age Gamer.

Another very good advantage of SD2SNES is that it is the flash cart that supports the highest number of special chips. The Super Nintendo has several games that use special chips in the cartridge itself to expand the hardware capability of the Super Nintendo. Some of these games are among the best Super Nintendo Library, including: Super Mario Kart, Top Gear 3000, Mega Man X2, Mega Man X3, Star Fox, F1 ROC II: Race of Champions, among others. The SD2SNES is able to emulate the special chips DSP1, DSP1b, DSP2, DSP3, DSP4, ST-010, Cx4, MSU1 e S-RTC, which already allows you to perform all listed games that quoted, except the Star Fox using the Super FX. But the creator of SD2SNES, sleeping, continues working on the project, and is currently implementing support for the Super FX. I hope I can play the Star Fox on my Super Nintendo logo. 🙂

SD2SNES - Best Flash Cart for the Super Nintendo

SD2SNES – Best Flash Cart for the Super Nintendo

The SD2SNES supports SD cards, SDHC SDXC e, tested with up to 64GB cards. Simply place the desired ROMs on your SD card, put the SD card into SD2SNES, put SD2SNES the Super Nintendo, plug and play. The loading of the game is almost instantaneous. The menu commands games, shows the subdirectories and very easy to navigate to find the desired games.

ROMs can be up to 96Mbit, which is more than enough for all commercial games that have been released for the Super Nintendo. The games that save the state SRAM, como Super Mario World, Zelda: A Link to the Past e tantos outros, are also fully supported and the information saved in SRAM are recorded on the SD card.

Ultimately, the SD2SNES is another of the best purchases I have ever made in relation to video games. The example of what recently happened to my Mega Drive, my Super Nintendo also left the original box which was resting for a long time and came to be installed on TV thanks to SD2SNES, beyond the SCART RGB cable I used to connect to the TV via HDMI, with the aid of SCART Video Converter + HDMI to HDMI, getting the best image possible to obtain with a Super Nintendo, with quality component video, far superior to the video image composite that I got used to my childhood. I'll talk soon about the SCART RGB Super Nintendo.

    I have the simplest model that this, both of mega, as the Snes. Too bad it only came to board, al had to kill two cartridges here to accommodate them. In most, I agree that these accessories with SD cards device for older consoles are very handy. Thanks to him I could play rarities like Super Turican 2 ( SNES) e Second Samurai (GENESIS).

    Know is this sd2snes allows save state?

    1. 8.1
      Skooter

      Does not allow, at least for now.
      But in games that use battery it writes / retrieves the contents of the RAM / SD.

    Face, get me a cruel doubt: how to use the other entrance which is next to the memory card, the top view of the flash cart? It is used for a USB cable? You could use? What is your function? I got a SD2SNES, also in the Retrogate site, but I could not use this entry. I tried two USB cables thinking the PC recognize the memory card as a unit, but failed. I am afraid to be defective. Anyway, I could usually play on my Super Nintendo. If you know, help al.

    1. 9.1
      Skooter

      To my knowledge this entry is reserved for future use. Never even tried using. Probably it allows developers to access the hardware directly, but it is unlikely that Windows recognizes without installing any driver.

    Skooter to in big trouble today received my SD2SNES and my snes is a playtronic source PG 9v 1000 but, I 3 games that turn good in it with no problem more put him to run and get the famous black bars and jumping screen'm using AV cable and firmware 1.4a can it be that my source is generic? a hug

    1. 10.1
      Skooter

      What would those famous black bars and jumping screen? You've seen them in another situation?
      I think there is likely to be the source, because the SD2SNES consumes more energy than a normal cartridge, including the Super Nintendo is hotter.

        and after a time the game restarts , one is how print lines http://2.bp.blogspot.com/-3d4lHDuo2Mc/U-wKfIcrNWI/AAAAAAAABfM/jYFZKbWGoWk/s1600/2014-08-13%2B14.43.32.jpg , and the worst shot he put mario bross and works flawlessly.

        1. Alexandre

          Pretty sure that ai is the source. I've seen similar cases.

          1. Antonioks

            personal worth managed to solve was a source of 12v 1ma stabilized Unitel and ta running lisinho, only can not I save nor Mario I use the reset menu to go back to more when I unplug the snes it is as if I did not have any morning-saved to using firmware 1.6.

          2. Skooter

            When you press the RESET have to hold tight until all the LEDs light up. That's when he saved on the SD card. See also the card is not protected for reading. Sometimes when you insert the card he can catch accidentally.

    I will see it, most believe it is not because the shot card and put more roms on it and do not change the side lock, as the lights gets a little complicated because the reset safe to go back to the menu to as ta with hood light a strong yellow light on the card then I loose the reset and will pro sd2snes menu, where is stored the files saved by sd2snes and type to play a game that is not battery type the Mario will also be able to save because I do not know how to load these cases, tested roms with embedded type paradox cheats and ran a good. a guys and thanks for the tips abrasion. two mods did not work X-Men vs. Street Fighter and tekken 2.

    1. 11.1
      Skooter

      I was taking a look at the FAQ and now I understand the area where games are saved is monitored and when there is a change that is automatically saved to a file .SRM. The scheme of holding the RESET is only for games that use SRAM as working memory. Just saving the games that originally had the SRAM. Do not have those savestates as the Mega Everdrive or emulators.
      As for ROMs hacked, not all work in the real hardware Super Nintendo, many of them only work on emulators. In fact they enjoy fault emulators, for if the emulation was perfect they also would not work on emulators.

      1. 11.1.1
        Antonioks

        mano earned the answers could save, and soon will firmware 1.7.
