General Discussion / Re: Progress on N64/GBA save support?
« Last post by bluegrassjedi on 14/Oct/2017 09:04:09 AM »
EPIC KUDOS to skaman.

I tested the Retrode.23e BETA FW and the N64 RAM+ROM files worked flawlessly.

Remember, you will have to save swap the RAM file if it is .FLA, .SRA by using a program.
I used ED64-Saveswap v0.1 beta very easy to use.

Also if you are using Project64: make sure to give it the name Project64 needs.
If you are not sure, run the game once in Project64. Copy that name from the new file.
Rename your Retrode imported file using that name and replace that file in your Project64 save directory.
Sometimes you may have to add spaces or capitalize letters.

Thanks to this Awesome community and skaman!! 
The new 0.23e BETA FW for the Retrode2 fixed all of my issues!!
I can now save my ROM+RAM files from my SNES, GEN, GB, GBC and N64 carts and use them in my emulators.
I can now also write RAM files to my carts if needed.

This was great for completing my emulator saves.
Some games I beat on actual Hardware and I didn't beat on the emulator yet. This saved me lots of time.
If my carts are stolen or lost, I can just buy new carts and load the saves :)
TOTALLY virtual on PC now :)

Things I learned:

1.) Make sure to use the right voltage switch.
3v = N64 + GBA games
5v = SNES, GEN, GB, GBC games

2.) Project 64 uses specific names for N64 saves.
Match your save files names to the ones Project64 needs.

3.) Some of the N64 games need to be save swapped by using a program.
My games I save swapped were LOZ Ocarina of Time, LOZ Majora's Mask, and Jet Force Gemini.

Bummer. Even Fedora 26 only has 4.11, and Debian-based distros are further behind. Linux Mint won't let you get 4.12 from the update manager, so you'd have to manually install it. I guess I don't understand why a special driver is needed, though. I thought the Retrode displayed controllers as HID-compliant devices for the specific purpose of making sure that you wouldn't need a special driver to use them.

Is there a specific minimum kernel version that would be likely to have it?

4.12

What would you recommend?
i always use pcbway there boards are pretty high quality.

this is from the dirtypcbs website:
Where are my damn PCBs?
Your Gerbers will be sent to the factory on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 10:00am China time. There's no point in doing it sooner because they'll just queue them at the factory... Rush orders are pushed hourly, on the hour.
The factory takes 3-8 days to manufacture the boards. They batch as they please, it's cheapest. If it's a holiday in China we'll let you know before you order!
Boards come back to us, we ship them the same day
Hong Kong Post takes 1 to 8+ weeks, depending on where you are
DHL/FEDEX/UPS take 2-5days, tracking is provided 12-48 hours after shipment


whats the point waiting the extra time when you can order direct.

I will recommend SeeedStudio PCB
https://www.seeedstudio.com/fusion_pcb.html

Quite cheap. Fast DHL shipping, only two days arrive to Australia  :D

ive tried them before there boards are crap pcbway are much better

My N64 RAM file worked after I changed the name.
Thanks and kudos again skaman!!

I will now match the N46 RAM file name to the name Project64 needs.
I have some completed saves on the computer already, so this means more work. meh.

I'm super glad, however, I can finally backup my N64 games. (especially my Super Smash Bros records)
Earlier, I had to use my Adaptoid to import saves. I'm not sure if I used it with an emulator.

Thanks and Kudos!!

now i can use an official snes controller with my retrode with no problems and i plan on adding the second when the the parts come.
im also planning on perhaps adding a power switch and an internal 5v to 3.3v board like i did with my cable

The .EEP save works.

 There is a single save in slot 1:
Gabriel
M Age 19 Red 0410 Yellow 22
00 day 06 hrs 51 min 46 sec

You probably need to rename the file.  "MISCHIEF MAKERS.eep" in the Save folder works.
