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. 🙂
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.
