I'm on Windows 10 x64, and I did manage to install the drivers, but I'm having huge problems with getting things to work. My Neo Myth MD won't detect at all. I bought a bunch of Neo devices some years back, paid hundreds of dollars, and now I'm pretty much unable to use them. Is there an alternative software to the Neo2 Manager? It seems extremely problematic. Even the GUI doesn't display correctly, with the top bar missing and glitching.

I'd buy the Neo3 SD cartridge, but I don't feel like I can trust Neo products at this point. Neo Myth MD doesn't work on my WonderMega at all, and even though I did report this, it was never fixed or even considered.

I wish you could at least develop new software for modern platforms, because at this point I'd have to buy a whole bunch of Everdrives, since my Neo carts aren't working like they should.
