MVS Firmware: https://www.arcade-projects.com/forums/index.php?thread/5101-darksoft-s-multimvs-latest-firmware-menu-and-instructions/&pageNo=1
Here’s the full list of changes and bugfixes:
- Fix BUFF opening and closing. Possibly also fixes other related to SD card issues.
- Fix new type of code injection breaking handling after clearFix routine.
- Fix vblank/USER subroutine injection: two ways of breaking injection: by last or first instruction hit.
- Turn off JSR injection module when return to Menu detected. Bug introduced long time ago. Gets activated by latest changes.
- Fix clear injection minimized
- Improved loading speed.
- Fixed GFX glitches on some AES models.
Also, the price of the AES cart has dropped to about $425 and is in stock at the sellers below. Unfortunately, the MVS carts are out of stock, with no indication of when they’ll be available for purchase:
