I made another video testing Gaiares japan. I hope it’s better this time. Watch it in full screen.

Changed HDMI from Denon to TV (changed HDMI cable too), changed power source. It keeps artifacting. Very annoying.

Are you using the latest MSG firmware? If so, downgrade to 4.5. There’s a potential bug in 4.6 that needs to be fixed.

Yes, latest jailbreak firmware. I decided to rollback to 4.4 = perfect screen. Then tried 4.5 = also perfect, no issues. The problem is with 4.6. Lost all my day doing tests for this, I’m exausted but happy because it seems a known bug. Now we wait.

Yeah, Kevtris knows about this issue and said he has a possible fix for it, but has been busy with other things to release a new firmware fixing it.

Great news, thanks. The thing is useless here on latest firmware, glitches everywhere.

I just recieved my Mega SD, and I'm having the same issues. Using Analogue SG with its provided cables. Pops up heavily in any FMV, and is noticable in other graphics as well, and quite prominently on the scaling sega logo at startup. I'll hook it up to the video capture tonight and upload footage...

EDIT: Fixed. Using Analogue's 4.6 version resolved these issues. Also thank you Todd for sending the latest SD update.

I just received mine in the mail today. I registered the product, and didn't see any firmware available when I registered. Upon testing the first CD game, the Sega CD menu was display artifacts. I thought it was weird but continued into the game (Snatcher), where it continued right in the beginning at the menu. I would downgrade firmware but I don't even have the option. If anyone can point me in the direction for what's going on with that, I'd appreciate it. I updated firmware for my SSDS3 today with no issues. The games are playing fine (played Sonic CD for about 20 minutes) and the only issue I can tell has to do with the image being displayed.

If you are using an Analogue Mega Sg console, make sure it's using the most recent firmware.

EDIT: alright cool. thanks to Todd's recommendation, using 4.6 on the Mega SG and without updating anything on the Mega SD, graphical issues are resolved.

I've seen this with earlier Mega Sg firmwares. Especially the shipping firmware.


So for anyone using our cart with an Analogue Mega Sg console, please update your firmware to the most recent one. This is doubly true if you are still on the firmware that their console shipped with.
