Neo N64 Menu v1.9
« on: August 31, 2010, 09:13:51 AM »
We are up to v1.9 - so what's new this time around? New default images (trying to avoid any copyright issues), and box art! Box art is only for people using an SD card. While browsing the SD card, the box art for games will be shown when viewing the game options. If you don't have any box art, or are browsing the game flash, you get a generic box art display. One internal change is the way save memory is initialized when it's first created. Before, it was always written to all 1's. Now EEPROM and SRAM are written to all 0's while FRAM is still written to all 1's. This might affect the way some games handle the save memory. You should probably delete your old saves unless you started originally with a save from an emulator. Also, the Fat Filesystem (libff) has been updated to the latest version. It's supposed to have faster seeking, but that probably won't be noticeable in the menu.

Many thanks to sanni for the art work.  ;D

Box art: N64-Boxart-20100830.7z

it's very nice update!

BTW, CW i think you should add one option in the N64 menu, for select the SD delay timing, because i have test the lsat v1.8 with some SD cart, it can loading complete, but the game not start. if i use the older N64 menu (slow loading) to load the game with same SD, it can work. so i think the SD delay timing should be in the critical condition, need some adjust for some special SD card? ::sm-22.gif::

All of my SD cards work fine, but I suppose there's bound to be some that are too slow for the new timing. It's shouldn't be too much to make it adjustable.

1.9 works with my Sandisk SD cards.

I tried putting the N64 menu in .\menu\n64\NEON64SD.v64 but it still loaded the v1.7 menu, then I tried writing v1.9 to Type-A2: N64 MENU but it still loaded v1.7. Writing it to Type-A1: GBA MENU was the only way I got it working.

1.9 works with my Sandisk SD cards.

I tried putting the N64 menu in .\menu\n64\NEON64SD.v64 but it still loaded the v1.7 menu

When the 1.7 version of the menu loaded up could you see the entries on the SD ? If not , the NEO2 SD needed a little bit more pressure , and since you unplugged the cart
again in order to burn the menu on the GBA Menu area, somehow it got back into the proper place.

When flashed to U2 or MF menu boots to black screen if there is a .menu folder plus any other folder/file on the sd card.
It works if .menu is the only folder and it works if there is no .menu folder on the sd card.

Temporary fix: delete .menu folder or burn v1.8 to U2 and copy v1.9 to sd.
Same with the testmenu.

......  :P , what do you mean with "explain clear"??   ~sm-79.gif~.gif
Its the U2 version of the menu.You just have to follow the usual procedure:
Set the menu type to N64 Menu then set the A2-Path to the file you just extracted and click the "burn" button.

what a link for the 1.9 ? because the other 1.9 not work ? you have corrected the version 1.9 ?

WHY I HAVE A BLACK SCREEN WITH THE 1.9 MENU ? expliquez le problème il n'y a que des problèmes avec vos mise a jour firmware de SD carte menu 1.9 , alors pourquoi j'ai un ecran noir sur la 1.9 et sur la 1.8 ça marche ?


and what this file : NEON64-U2-TEST.tar.gz ?
