WHAT HAPPENED TO THE SD2SNES PRO?

The "SD2SNES Pro" was re-branded to "FXPAK Pro" due to a trademark conflict. The FXPAK Pro still is the same great product, just with a new name!


This is the All Region Classic Black version of the Super Famicom and SNES (it will fit into Japanese, European & North American systems). This cartridge comes assembled in a black universal shell, with red anodized aluminum screws and a Classic-style label.

Ever dream of having your whole library of SNES or SFC games in a single cartridge? The FXPAK Pro allows you to load your game back-ups (commonly known as ROMs) on a microSD card, put the microSD card into the FXPAK Pro, put the FXPAK Pro into a SNES or Super Famicom and have your list of games at your finger tips. Please read the FLASH CART DISCLAIMER below before purchasing.

Basic Edition vs. Deluxe Edition

The Basic Edition comes with just the FXPAK Pro cartridge with a gray back label in the selected style or configuration covered by a 1-year Warranty. Whereas the Deluxe Edition includes the cartridge with gold back label, a case, printed manual, an FXPAK Pro sticker, Stone Age Gamer sticker, and is covered by a 2-year Warranty.

Features

  • FREE DIGITAL GAME: Blow 'em Out
  • microSD supported (tested up to 64GB; no exFAT support so SDXC cards must be reformatted using FAT32).
  • Fast ROM loading (~9MB/s).
  • Fast menu navigation.

  • High resolution menu (512×224) for adequate display of long file names.

    • near-time saving is switched to periodic saving when a game is found to use the SRAM as work RAM.
    • Automatic saving is disabled when MSU1 is used. SRAM is saved on reset.
    • Enhancement chip support (see below for implementation status).
  • SuperCIC key (SNES CIC clone):
    • enables operation on unmodified consoles of all regions.
    • supports software 50/60Hz switching on SuperCIC enhanced consoles only (to be performed by FXPAK firmware, not yet implemented there).

    FX PakPro

    Posted by David on Jul 11th 2022

    As guy who's SNES collection is not so easy to get to nowadays, the FX PakPro is a godsend. No longer does one have to fish out boxes of cartridges just to play their favorite titles. You can fit your entire library into one MicroSD, scroll down to your favorite title and hit A. Okay, it's not as easy as that. The Micro SD card still has to be setup properly, but that part is easy as well.

    The really kicker is that this cartridge supports nearly every SNES/SF game that is out there. Everything, from Doom to Street Fighter Alpha 2 to romhacks like Dragon Quest translations to Star Fox 2 Restorations.

    This cartridge is a must by for any major SNES collector.

    FXPak Pro

    This is by far the best solution for playing ROM-hacks on the original Hardware. The firmware development ist still active and more functions are getting added. Definitely worth the price.

    Impressed

    Posted by Kelly Hollifield on Feb 3rd 2022

    I am pretty pleased with it. The only complaint is that I can't get a lot of rom hacks to work on it.
    I do use it for my live streams on Tiktok.

    This product is simply amazing

    Posted by shawn paulin on Dec 25th 2021

    This product is simply amazing.

    Not only you can play all snes special chip games but you can also play super game boy as well as super game boy 2 games with adjustable refresh rates to mimic the perfect experience. You can even play msu-1 version of games which gives better sound and video than original games.

    Installation is quite easy also. Just download the firmware unto sd card along with some games in a separate folder and you are basically good to go. You can also make your own custom menu which is really neat. The amount of settings in the Fxpakpro is also amazing.

    I bought this to play romhack but also because I am very slowly building a streaming setup and this product was more than a necessity for what I would like to do.

    Highly recommend this product

    Major kudos on making this product a reality

    Best Flash Cart

    Posted by Flavio Alves on Aug 10th 2021

    The FXPAK Pro (originally known as SD2SNES Pro) it´s a great addition to your collection. For me it´s the best cartridge actually available for the SNES, because have a great compatibility with the entire console library. And in some cases, with community modifications, games can run MUCH better (like Street Fighter Alpha 2). Here you can replaces original sounds and tracks with CD-quality audio.

    Extremely recommended!

    The Definitive SNES Flash Cart

    Posted by Andy on Jul 30th 2021

    This is it. What you’ve been looking for. The definitive SNES Flash Cart. Compatible with almost all of the library (like 99.8%, which is ultimately all of the games that an average individual would want to play). Easy to use. Customizable themes. Highly recommend.

    The Ultimate Flash Cart fort Super Nintendo!

    Posted by ABOhiccups on Apr 6th 2021

    The SD2SNES Pro or FXPAK Pro is one the Best Flash Cart for Super Nintendo! You can play almost 99.8% of entire SNES Library including DSP, SuperFX, SA1, Cx4, BS-X, and many more. However, the other 0.2% of SNES games are not compatible with FXPAK Pro as of right now. But those 0.2% of games are not really important and I'm sure not many of people talk about these games. That's not all. FXPAK Pro also support MSU1. What MSU1 does. It takes original SNES Tracks and replace it with High Quality CD Audio plus it also add FMV on SNES game as well. The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past is a perfect example. Of curse there was a Homebrew SNES game that was ported from the Arcade and use MSU1 Enhancement. That Homebrew game I'm talking about is called Super Road Blaster. This port looks amazing on Super Nintendo. If Nintendo and Sony work things out and release Super Nintendo CD Add-on. Then we might end up like Super Road Blaster. I'm hoping more Homebrew developers will make more Homebrew MSU1 games like this. There was unofficial Firmware that adds Save State and Super Game Boy support on FXPAK Pro. Hopefully, these features will be available in Official Firmware Update. I highly recommend FXPAK Pro if you're hardcore Super Nintendo nerd or Retro Gaming in General.
