The article about the voltage issue is here: https://db-electronics.ca/2017/07/05/the-dangers-of-3-3v-flash-in-retro-consoles/

The short version is: avoid new multicarts like the plague; use an Everdrive N8 instead.

Yes and even some of the Everdrives are bad as well, thankfully not the N8 though.

Isn't that one of those boards that's said to not handle 3.3 V to 5 V translation properly and may damage your Famicom?
I don't know! But I need to know, and how to fix it if possible, I just got this cart and I don't want to do damage.

Looks like it's using the same flash chip as one of the bad examples in the above linked article (MXIC 29GL256E which are rated for 3.6 V max), and only diodes on the power pin. Also I think someone posted a picture of the Mind Kids board before and it was determined to be one of the bad ones.

I'm a little worried if my Game Boy Everdrive is also badly designed considering many Everdrives are according to the article. If Everdrives are killing our old machines faster than normal, it's not a good thing at all considering how popular Everdrives are.

Wow, long time since I last wrote anything here! I still collect for NES, and today I bought myself something really nice, thought I'd show you guys first! I got it from a local video game store, he had it up on ebay for a while. I couldn't stand it anymore and bit the bullet. Still didn't get it for cheap at all, but I just couldn't help myself.

It's a legit USA / Canadian version which is extremely rare. You can find the Pal region ones more easily, but I personally never saw this US box, and the box looks very nice and clean! People seem quite focused with getting the NTSC variant of Stadium Events, but forget that this boxed US Family Fun Fitness pad is also very important!...Well, to me anyways! Grin

Nice find! It's certainly a rare find since it was more or less intended to be played with Stadium Events. So now is your chance, Tokyo Olympic starts in less than two years, time to get FIT!!!  Cool Just kidding, congratulations on a nice find!  Smiley

Thanks! Smiley I played with it yesterday and it sure does give a sweat, might make me more fit before the deadline! Grin

I just don't get why these are still passing under the radar and don't seem to command higher prices yet. You look on ebay or other sites and will find quite a few Stadium Events. When you look for the North American Family Fun Fitness pad in either listings for sale and past sold listings, it's almost impossible to find! I believe people have yet to realise that these are incredibly rare and important for the Stadium Events set (same goes for boxed Family Fun Fitness Athletic World, although Imo more common). If you find one boxed in the wild for cheap, I suggest you guys to pick it up before it's too late! Shocked

If you are quick enough you can still maybe find one cheaply online, saw a past auction on ebay US and the lucky guy got it for only 100$ US! Roll Eyes People who know nothing about it (that's most) maybe won't notice the difference with the PAL region boxes and sell it to you at the same prices as those. To spot the american version easily, it has the Bandai logo in the top left, and has a missing gameplay "screen" in the bottom left that says this is for PAL region systems.

Thanks for the tip! I'll keep an eye out!

I bought a NES -clone labeled "Family Computer System" recently, paid 17 incl. shipping. It came with two controllers and light gun. Front-loading system but not the same unreliable as in genuine NES. There has been discussion about it before on this forum and pictures, mine seems to have bit different revision of cpu and ppu.
