    Works great!

    Posted by Ryan Winter on Jul 29th 2022

    Stone Age Gamer's shipping was super fast as usual. The everdrive for GBA works great, the menu isn't much to look at and can't be customized as far as I know, but what really matters is that the games work as intended, and with the Goomba emulator installed, it can even play Gameboy games. There are even options to use Super Gameboy boarders if you want to keep the original resolution. Big recommendation from me!

    Outstanding Gaming Experience

    Posted by Tony Escobar, Jr, MD on Apr 8th 2022

    Superb retrogaming experience. I am blown away by the authenticity and versatility of Krikzz's work, and the support Stone Age Gamer has provided me. It's been truly outstanding. Highly recommended to gaming enthusiasts with original or FPGA hardware! Highly recommend combining with Smoke Monster's File System.

    Not much more to say. It's exactly what you want. Looks great. Fantastic build quality. Loads and plays GBA roms exactly like the original cartridges.

    Using this with the GameboyInterface on a gcloader with Swiss. It’s perfect. Also it works with larger sd cards that it states. Thanks to stoneage gamer for formatting it correctly ahead of time.

    Works flawless and easy to set up. Didn’t bother w/ Goomba, etc. but all other games play just fine. X7 will eventually have save states etc I’m sure but this is worth every penny

    Great Way To Play GBA, Extra Benefits as Well

    Posted by Joe on Sep 12th 2021

    If you are looking for a great way to play GBA games this is a great option. I have tested it in a GB Advance SP, a DS and the Nintendo Gamecube gameboy player both with the official software and the GBI (Game Boy Interface) homebrew with great results. Setup is not hard at all, just make sure to get the most up to date software, drop onto a FAT32 formatted microsd, and start adding the files. A minor complaint is the GBA menu seems to have a limit of 69 pages, as anytime I had a full library it would truncate the list and remove some of the later titles. Because of this, I would highly suggest making alphabetical folders if you are hoping to have full sets of games on this device. I had no had this issue with my FXPakPro so it may just be something about this drive, but still an easy fix and now all my games show up as they should with better organization. Translated games and various romhacks for the GBA have also worked just fine, the auto region select seems to handle any Japanese or Euro games with ease and I have yet to find any GBA games that glitch out on me. The device can also run Sega Master System, Sega Game Gear, Nintendo Entertainment System and Game Boy/Game Boy Color via various emulators built with the GBA in mind. These are not perfect however and you may notice some scaling issues with some titles, and others may fail to boot or have other strange glitches. But the overall performance is passable and a nice bonus for having more games on the go. Do not purchase it with these emulators as your main focus as you are probably better off getting a dedicated everdrive for those consoles, but having some extra functionality on top of great GBA support is an excellent perk. Overall very happy with the device, and would highly suggest it for anyone interested in this consoles library.

    Just works

    Posted by agj on Aug 2nd 2021

    The form factor being the same as a regular GBA cartridge, it sits flush with my Game Boy Micro. I previously used an old M3, which jutted out a bit and made it uncomfortable to hold. The Everdrive X5 mini's software is simple and to the point, no unnecessary customization or "artfully" designed icons and backgrounds, just a plain menu from which to browse and find the games. Pressing start loads the game last played, which is a convenient shortcut. In all it loads fast, plays games with no problems for me so far, and simply never gets in the way.

    Really Good Flashcart

    Posted by Austin Hoople on Jul 22nd 2021

    From the relatively short time that I've had my EverDrive GBA-X5 Mini, I can tell that this is a good quality flashcart. It plays my GBA games about as well as any GBA cartridge, and the included emulators all work as intended. The RTC is a nice feature to have for certain games (such as Pokemon), and it's nice to know that replacing the internal battery is super easy. Also, the build quality for the cartridge is really nice, about as good as any officially produced GBA cartridge. This is an easy recommendation from me to anybody who wants their own GBA flashcart.
