What comes with the Deluxe Edition?

There is no better flash cart for the NES, this is a masterpiece.
The Everdrive N8 is a great piece of hardware. I purchased my N8 a few months ago and had no issues...until it stopped working. I let krikzz know what was happening (via his website) and I sent it out for repair. I got it back shortly (2 weeks) after and everything is in working order. Krikzz makes a great product and the Deluxe Edition stone age sells is great!
No issues as long as you're using clean ROMs. issues with some 'hacked' ROMs. Very nice cart for people who want to play NES games on actual NES hardware.
I Honestly Don't Own One Of These, But I Really Want One! I Watched Reviews Of These And They Are Epic!

Will flash carts work on clone systems like the Super Retro Trio or the RetroN5?

The answer is: maybe. Sometimes flash carts will operate on clone systems, but we can not guarantee it. Currently there is no flash cart known to work on the RetroN5.

What is a flash cart?

A flash cart allows you to take game back-up files (commonly referred to as ROMs), put them on an SD card, put the SD card into the flash cart and then access the list of game files from your console.
