Mega EverDrive Pro Is Now Available For Purchase

Hardware and rom cart designer Igor Golubovskiy “Kr!Kzz” has just announced that the much anticipated Mega EverDrive Pro is now available for purchase.  This improved “Pro” model SEGA Genesis/Mega Drive cart is due in large part to the necessity of the hardware design and components used.  Some of the microchips used in the making of the original Mega EverDrive are becoming “End of Life”.

This means the components needed to manufacture these rom carts are no longer produced and sources for those components become increasingly harder and more expensive to find.  Thus Kr!Kzz used this opportunity to jump to the next line of FPGA components and utilize a more powerful chip while keeping cost down.

Much like the SD2SNES Pro (FXPak Pro) the added benefit of the newer more powerful FPGA is that features that were once thought not possible.  Are now due to the increased capabilities.  Some notable features now possible with the Mega EverDrive Pro are:

  • Cyclone IV FPGA
  • 16MB PSRAM and 1MB SRAM memory
  • High quality 6-layers PCB with hard gold surface finish
  • Supported ROM formats: Genesis, 32X, Mega-CD, Master System, NES*
  • Ram cart for Mega-CD
  • CD bios swap function turns off region locks for Mega-CD games
  • Hardware MegaKey turns off region locks for Genesis games
  • YM2413 core for Master System games
  • SVP core support
  • Pier Solar mapper support
  • In-game menu. You can save game or return to system menu without physical reset
  • In-game menu supported for Genesis and Master System modes
  • Full EEPROM saves support
  • Real time clock for logging date and time of saves
  • ARM based 32bit I/O co-processor for SD and USB operations acceleration
  • Up to 1024 files per folder or unlimited if file sorting is disabled
  • Wide file systems support: FAT16/FAT32/EXFAT
  • Multi slot save states. 100 save states slots for each game
  • Instant ROM loading
  • USB port for development and system update without removing SD card
  • Battery voltage monitoring. Battery can be replaced in time if it runs dry
  • Game Genie cheats support

It should also be noted that 32X games require the actual 32X hardware to function.  Kr!Kzz also put in a limited functioning NES core for the cart.  Users will be able to play N.E.S. games on their Genesis/Ever Drive albeit limited to NTSC region games. The Mega EverDrive Pro is available on Kr!Kzz’ EverDriveMe website and can be purchased for $199.  Links down below.
