    Lives up the hype

    Posted by Bryce Johnson on Apr 24th 2024

    This was my first Super Nintendo flash cart and it worked just great. The box it came in was a great touch and the manual walked me through everything I needed to know. The custom menus were a great touch too.

    fxpak pro

    Posted by Evan Puchalla on Nov 8th 2022

    this thing can play spc music files. chrono trigger, ff6, dkc soundtracks played easily on the delicious sfc soundchip. some of the best gaming soundtracks ever are on this console, available to you at the press of a button.

    yes i bought an sfc for this, but it works on my childhood snes as well!

    the one i got i think was from the last lot of sd2snes. shortly after, super gameboy support was added. i like this because i can further flesh out my collection of series that are split between both snes and gb (zelda, kirby, harvest moon, saga). plus you can run lsdj, which sounds amazing on the sfc!

    NO, pokemon crystal clear does not work on this or the n64 everdrive, which won't play gbc-only games! but there are tons of other pokemon romhacks to check out, like blue kaizo or pokemon grape, which are still in color and/or sgb enhanced!

    obviously it's great to get the newest patches and translations for your favorite games, or classic hacks by aeon genesis etc, not to mention satellaview patches and countless other rom hacks... but none of that has to do with this fancy cart.

    you can damn near play ps1 games with this thing. star ocean looks incredible. street fighter alpha on snes is nuts. and everybody loves super mario rpg (and hacked, of course). there are some other classic games like yoshi's island and kirby 3 i think that need the extra juice. but for me, it was always a teenage fantasy to play the unreleased star fox 2 on a real snes.

    well, sometimes dreams do come true.

    i was worried about its ability to play mega man x. if anything, the game's natural slowdown (in x1, which is most familiar to me) seemed a bit different, but it's not something most people would notice, if it's even there. if you're speedrunning you probably have a hard copy already, and japanese copies of mega man x2 are far cheaper than the u.s. ebay scams anyway, so no problem (or at least they were; i haven't checked the prices in a few years). i don't usually swap to my hard copies though, the fxpak does fine.

    i'm more than happy to throw my boxes of collected carts away! can't wait for my n64 everdrive to get here! i love widescreen patches ;)

    p.s. i recommend giving the obscure "chaos seed" and "gunman's proof" a try. wild!

    My favorite Everdrive so far

    Posted by Ryan Winter on Jul 29th 2022

    I have four everdrives so far, for the Game Boy, Game Boy Advance, Nintendo 64, and now the SNES is my most recent addition with the FX Pak Pro. And I have to say, by far this one is my absolute favorite.

    It doesn't support 100% of the library but it supports all the games that matter, plus, more recent firmware enables you to play Super Game Boy, and not in a half hearted way like most emulators. You get the dynamic boarder, the ability to change boarders, change pallets, draw on the screen, and yes, it even has the enhanced sound.

    What's more, the main menu has custom theme support, so it's not just a boring black background with pixelated text. A word of warning, you need to go through a process to update any themes to match the current firmware or the games won't load, you can do that on the SD2SNES website.

    There are various settings allowing you to enable certain features, in game hooks, save states, overclock super fx, but some of these features aren't perfect. Save States do not work on Mario All-Stars for example and if you play with in game hooks turned on, super punch-out will crash on the 2nd fight. So keep these in mind.

    My favorite thing is that MSU-1 romhacks are supported, allowing your game to have CD quality audio. You haven't lived until you played Donkey Kong Country with Sam Miller's uncompressed restoration of the sound track.

    Mine even came with a nifty box that is evocative of the old clam shell VHS cases you used to get movies in.. though these are a lot more well made and not as prone to denting.

    If you own an SNES, this is the absolute best thing you can buy to go along with it.

    I tried the rest - this is THE BEST!

    Posted by James Lott on Jan 2nd 2022

    Bought my FXPAK Pro as a holiday gift for myself on the 25th, and have been using it almost non-stop since it arrived! This cart is, without a doubt, head and shoulders above the rest.

    I started off with a generic, run-of-the-mill 800 in 1 cart. It suited the needs of my kiddos just fine when they were a bit younger. As they became teens, however, they wanted to play some of the better games that just didn't play well on that plastic-encased, silicon goat food.

    Naturally, we upgraded. Of course, we moved to what we thought, at the time, was the best option: the Super Everdrive x6 - and it was grand! We could finally play Donkey Kong in all it's musically colorful glory. Oh the times that we had: buttons were mashed, fingers were blistered, and nary a frown could be found in front of the smooth, sleek curvature of our trusty GE 13AC3502V.

    Or, at least, that was the case until the older teen and I were working our way through Kirby's Dream Land and stumbled upon a problem: the third installment wouldn't function. Sure, it would list it in the brilliantly designed and alphabetically ordered menu - but it just would not play. On researching this online, it turned out to be a limitation of the cart itself. You can imagine our disappointment, but it was just a few games and most of them weren't our cup of hot leaf juice, so I just couldn't justify making the purchase.

    That is, until just last month, when the younger teen got into everything which came out of Japan, including a very specific couple of games: Jikkyou Oshaberi Parodius and Momotaro Dentetsu Happy. Please don't ask me - I honestly have no idea what they are, other than the perfect excuse to upgrade again.

    And what a magnificent upgrade it was. The FXPAK Pro plays all those games, and a few more that I hadn't thought about in years, like Doom, Star Ocean, and Street Fighter Alpha 2. In the words of the miracle man Popeil, himself: "It slices! It dices! It makes julienne fries!" ... But wait, there's more!

    It has support for the MSU-1 enhancement chip, in addition to a bunch of other DSP chipsets. Do you know what that means? It means Bluth fans (like pretty much everyone in our entire family) can watch the videos in Dragon's Lair properly. You know - The fantasy adventure where you become a valiant knight, on a quest to rescue the fair princess from the clutches of an evil dragon. This alone made the purchase worth every cent.

    That's nowhere near the end, though. Not only did we get access to a bunch of games, and better graphics, and homebrewed roms with amazing audio tracks - no, they didn't just stop there. They wrapped the whole package up with a magnificent choice of interfaces and custom labeling. You bet your sweet candy derriere that I went with the Retro Future version. What makes it even better for me, though, is knowing that a change in the GUI is only a click and a download away.

    In short, I've been through a few different options and can confidently say this was the best cart we tried. Hands down. I was an ignorant fool before laying my calloused fingers on the FXPAK Pro, and can only lament the time we spent gaming without it. Don't make the mistakes I made - get this one today.

    Best Cartridge

    Posted by Christopher on Dec 31st 2021

    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.

    It does everything I throw at it!

    Posted by Mason on Sep 11th 2021

    I have snes, gameboy, msu1, and even hacked snes games and it loads almost every single one quickly without issues.I was surprised on the quality of the cartridge when I received it and it excelled my expectations. The only gripe i did have was the shipping time. It did take a 3 to 4 months to get here bit totally worth the wait.

    It's dope, kinda expensive but definitely the best on the market for this sort of thing.

    As opposed to some other carts for other systems, this one is literally the best for the SNES

    Posted by Mirza on Sep 10th 2021

    Firstly, the finishing work on the carts, and how nicely the stickers are places (accurately) needs to be mentioned thanks to this site, along with nice color combo with the screws, very nice touch, and thankfully using hex screws instead of strip prone Philips as seen with many other carts. The cart itself is nice and solid without having PCB rattling or what not. StoneAgeGamer also has a convenient light pip addon (if you need to see diagnostic lights from the PCB itself if you're using a solid color like this grey one), along with a microUSB cover to keep things nice and tidy.

    You also get hard-gold contacts on the PCB's pins that contact with the system, ensuring the contacts last longer than real carts themselves if I'm not mistaken due to material choice.

    But as for functionality, this thing basically does it all, and actually out-does what carts were capable of on original hardware. The MSU-1 function upgrade thanks to the new late byuu/Near (RIP) which has been adopted by the designer of the FXPak Pro allows for CD quality (44.1Khz 16-bit uncompressed PCM) audio that you will not find anywhere else to play on original hardware (or things like the Super Nt). A handful of some obscure games remain to be supported by this cart. But that number is lessening according to the main designer who will be adding a chip or two more for support soon. The cart still receives regular firmware updates that incorporate functionality others have helped get going. Things like savestates and such.

    You pay for all this handsomely relatively speaking. But generally speaking, the competition isn't even close. Definitely something even the most stringent SNES collector should get (if only to spare their carts from degradation).

    StoneAgeGamer gets another shout-out for the quick shipping and good packaging, since people can be curious how that fairs when ordering from a new place. And also a convenient deluxe edition case if you want to store or transport this thing with you with a collection of games for download to boot.

    Fantastic Flash Cart

    Posted by Scott Mettlen on Sep 9th 2021

    I am extremely pleased with the FXPakPro. This, combined with a super NT is the perfect "it just works" setup for SNES on a modern TV.
