As some forums are annoying with there PM programs (Urgh one at a time) im posting the mass message here.
People that have yet to pay with a week left will be pestered

Also, no PMs saying "Paid" I want to keep my inbox clean
Thank you for taking part

Now comes the time of great posting payments.
Well when I have them all here

All payments must be in Pound sterling ()
All Payments must be via Paypal
If its gift or personal payment (recommended to cover your self) you must pay the fees on your end, I do not want to be out of pocket on this, any that dont pay the fee will be refunded
Pick up is fine
If you want them shipped to r0jaws for modding or to a third party let me know and ill sort out a rate depending on how many get sent

Postage costs are 5 UK main land, smaller ones I can get 4 in a padded envelope, over seas is working out at about 10 (if its a few pence over ill take it out of the tips)
PMs to me shall contain
Name
Address
What it is
The same Paypal address shall be used

Ill send PP details then (My Ctrl, C and V keys are getting faded)
I would ask for a tip, but that would be cheeky so ill say to bung a few quid in a the next charity box you pass

Special offer from r0jaws
I'll open it up to everyone, if you want me to modify a donor cartridge with chips soldered in and cartridge cases modified to include an SD card slot I will setup a Just Giving webpage where you can make a donation for the work. Just send me a donor cartridge and some stamps for return postage (or send me a couple of quid via PayPal for recorded return delivery)

It will most likely be for the Make a Wish Foundation & Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, you can choose which one to give your donation too. The amount is upto you, I don't mind if it's a 1 or 10, whatever you like is Ok.
I will sort it out when DBloke/DPrinny/Mike is about to get the orders in.
TL;DR - Certain PCBs need a chip to get them to work, the N64 one needs a CIC chip from the region that the console is in order for it to work, these are found in every N64 game.
The Super Everdrive can have a "DSP1" chip soldered onto it to make Super Mario kart work theres a list online that lists games that have this chip

After much consideration, I maybe interested in the NES ED if there is enough interest.
Are you gathering the troops on Jamma+ and RG to?

better wait for the Gameboy-ED to get released as well :)

r0jaws
18th January 2014, 21:42
+1 to that. I would definitely go for a Gameboy version.
Announced HERE (http://krikzz.com/forum/index.php?topic=46.msg10857#msg10857)

Maybe make it on other forums is someone else wants to plug it over there.

Ordering for myself wise, I might get the updated Super Everdrive or SD2SNES, I have everything else. if its one or two short on certain ones I could get another.

Im also going to get the RCM types in on this as they are after some


better wait for the Gameboy-ED to get released as well

Unless its out by then I might do them as a separate thing

r0jaws
18th January 2014, 22:02
Well I don't mind announcing it on RG, but seeing the result we had the last few times, I'm not sure it's worth it.

DBloke
18th January 2014, 22:08
Thats the general feeling I have.

The Jamma+ one went well, some had to pull out due to money constraints (Why don't I have them as much?)

Rustling up 10+ for the likes of the GameGear would be hard.

Its a shame there isnt other flashcart selling types that do discounts.

Checked the going rates and $60 = 36.54, so conversion rates seem to be going back to as they where about 5 years ago

-Acid-
18th January 2014, 22:46
I might be up for a sd2snes.

sir_beaker
18th January 2014, 23:04
1. I'd be interested in a Mega Everdrive or Everdrive MD as my current Mega Everdrive is a stupidly tight fit so I wouldn't mind replacing it.

2. If I get a Famicom I'd be interested in that version of the N8. I've got the NES one but I get weird things when running non-EU images on my PAL NES (the health bar etc on Castlevania scrolls off the screen as you move and so on). I've not actually looked into it yet but I am assuming it has something to do with the timing differences?

3. Master Everdrive.

scrappysphinx
19th January 2014, 01:08
Possibly interested in everdrive 64 and everdrive md. Will keep an eye on the thread see how things go

soeter04

Stick me down for a Turbo Everdrive (although given the last group buy might not get the numbers) and a Mega Everdrive.

bobpard
20th January 2014, 19:26
do you know what the discounted price is on an sd2snes?

keropi
20th January 2014, 19:29
I was under the impression that Krikkz would offer the discount for 10 everdrives from whatever model, do we need 10 of each model now?

DBloke
20th January 2014, 20:06
Yep ten of each now

But he does do a Black Friday sale type thing if you dont get what you want due to numbbers on this

Jamma
21st January 2014, 13:48
Can you please mark me up for Mega Everdrive - or Everdrive MD if you do not get the magic 10 for the mega everdrive.

BrooksterMax
21st January 2014, 14:05
you can put down the Master Everdrive for me

DBloke
26th January 2014, 11:40
Updated, some have reached ten, if theres any interest in doing so I might put the orders for the ones at ten middle of Feb

do you know what the discounted price is on an sd2snes?

With out fully checking I think its about 99

protek

Thanks!

Jamma
31st January 2014, 13:17
Can you please stick me down for a Everdrive 64. Might as well try and complete the set for the consoles I own.

Still unsure about going for a everdrive MD or a mega everdrive. If ten people are interested would go for the mega everdrive.

Marmes

3rd February 2014, 18:25
I've offered this on Retro Gamer, so I thought I'd extend the offer on here.

For a donation to charity I will modify a donor cartridge (with chips soldered in if required for DSP1 etc) and cartridge cases modified to include an SD card slot.
I will setup a Just Giving webpage where you can make a donation for the work. Just send me a donor cartridge and some stamps for return postage (or send me a couple of quid via PayPal for recorded return delivery)

It will most likely be for the Make a Wish Foundation & Leukaemia & Lymphoma Research, you can choose which one to give your donation too. The amount is upto you, I don't mind if it's a 1 or 10, whatever you like is Ok.
I will sort it out when DPrinny is about to get the orders in.

Just wondering.... aren't these Everdrives made and shipped from Ukraine? If that is the case, considering the current political tensions, would one expect postal services to work as expected?

Football matches in the Europa league still took place without problems so I don't see why not. I think the protests seem to be localised to where the government is located, rest of the country seems to be as normal.

everblue
2nd March 2014, 13:56
True but that was last week, things seem to be escalating really quickly (unfortunately) and it does seem that a war is inevitable. Obviously Ukraine is a huge country (well complained to main any country is huge :P) so what goes on in one area may not affect other areas... but you know, war is war.

-Acid-
2nd March 2014, 14:12
It's true anything could happen between now and ordering them, suppose we'll just have to wait and see how things go. I hope there is no war though that's just what we don't need.

7th March 2014, 03:50
At the risk of sounding stupid I take it the Everdrive 64 is for the N64?
If so then I'd be interested in one of these plus a PCE one.

Hi there,

Sorry to mess anyone about, but I need to amend my order.
A generous friend recently gave me all the everdrives I was after as he was getting rid of his console collection!

Long story short, I need to cancel:

1 x Turbo Everdrive
1 x Master Everdrive
1 x Mega Everdrive

And instead go for:

1 x SD2SNES
1 x Everdrive 64

Thanks. :)

Hey DBloke,

I seem to be removed from the Megadrive list? I was wanting to change the EverDriveMD to a Mega Everdrive so I have the best for my lovely new WonderMega :thumbsup:

Sorry about that DBloke. Can someone help out, I'm not used to dealing in dollars through PayPal and the site I am using in the screenshot to calculate how much says I need to send $109.47 for the seller to receive $106 - this is obviously wrong which is a bit frustrating for me and DBloke. Is there an easier way? Is the $3.90 mentioned a few posts above correct? All I want to do is pay the correct amount... :)

Should it be 3.4% + 20p?

that $3.90 I believe is to cover the Paypal currency conversion for Euro's out of you A/C to $'s you are paying in.

Am fairly sure that is the case anyway. Sure DBloke will confirm though:thumbsup:

due to your refund..paypal has put a hold on my money being returned (because it takes time to come from the bank). So i cant send you the money again until that is fixed. Why you couldn't just ask me to send u the rest to make up the amount i dont know..

Skellionz
31st March 2014, 22:28
Don't ask me mate i just payed what paypal told me to pay, Im unsure what the "correct" amount seems to be. It would probably be helpful if it was posted the actual money required for each item with fees included.

Im sure he is trustworthy if you want to pay like that, up to each person i guess

sir_beaker
31st March 2014, 22:42
Yeah, would be nice to know the final amount or what the correct calculation to use is, or even how much I am out :lol: I know the currencies fluctuate so I don't mind paying over the amount to cover it.

I am sure DBloke is completely trustworthy and it's very kind of him to arrange the group buy. I assume he must be as frustrated as we are trying to pay so it's probably just as well we have some time for a second attempt :thumbsup: My worry is it puts him off the Gameboy one later in the year. I am sure we'll get it down to a 'T' eventually :D

soeter04
31st March 2014, 23:37
Is it all really that complicated? Either pay as a gift (no complex fee calculation, yay!) or pay for goods and be generous when calculating a fee (8% or something).

If it turns out you paid a few cents or god forbid a dollar too much, i'm sure that can be rectified with the later payment for shipping.

sir_beaker
1st April 2014, 00:59
Yeah, I don't mind paying a few dollars more. I just don't want to under pay a second time :thumbsup: The problem was I don't know if I was a little out or a lot out :lol:

I'm sure if we have a calculation we could stick to it would make life easier seeing as several of us are getting caught out when we think we've covered the costs. I mean we're not out to make DBloke's life more difficult.

Apologies if I am making a big thing out of nothing.

---------- Post added at 23:33 ---------- Previous post was at 22:56 ----------

You're right, BluesBrothers explained with examples where I was going wrong with and not taking into account what the receiver gets when working the calculation backwards (and I was using the wrong percentage).

I am going to have another go at paying. :thumbsup:

If a group buy for these comes around again then I'd be up for one for the NES too, plus a few others. Available cash is always the problem though isn't it:roll:.

@DBloke - Will contact soon about collection of my PCE & Everdrive64. Had a heavy day yesterday and I'm struggling to kickstart my back into action so I need to know I can get there before commiting.

DBloke, put an extra $10 on my postage when you send mine out. I'll cover it for you as thanks for sorting it all out. :-)

That wouldn't be that fair,

All orders for people bar those that have ordered SD2SNES and SEDs are all packed ready to go
All should be the same in postage

Okies, maybe split the cost between everyone's postage? Only fair, as you shouldn't be out of pocket, and you've gone to all the trouble of arranging everything.

Yep agreed, should not be out of pocket with all the stress and hassle over the group buy. I chucked a few extra dollars in the first payment so hopefully a few others would have done the same. Was planning on doing the same on the next payment!

Yeah I'd also say split the additional cost amongst everyone's postage.

Can I also ask something - I think you mentioned you were going to send these out 1st class. Could I request mine be sent Special Delivery if it's not too much hassle (will of course pay whatever it costs). Just on the off chance RM mess up, I think 1st class only covers a low amount of compensation.
