They have also announced another project, which is a super PC engine Flash cart - talk about retro gaming!

Function:

- support PC-E
- support PC-E CORE
- support multi PC-E rom,and use switch to swap the game
- memory size up to 128M
- use USB Slim Loader to burn

project status: 100%

So why do we need another Phantom 1, much less one you have to shell the game's case to make work?

idk but hopefully its going to be cheaper than buying a Phantom 1 and hopefully can play all the Playmore MVS games that don't work on the Phantom 1

I am not sure you need to get the PCB out of the case. They probably did it to prove that it was indeed playing a MVS board on an AES system

I am also curious to find out what price they are demanding for this adapter.

A second looks seems like it is the Slug 5 PCB and not the MVS by the position of the ROMS on the board.

EDIT: no, I take that back, scrolling through the pics (change the #'s) shows that it is the MVS, the adapter is much smaller than a phantom 1.

Meh, maybe it's better than the Phantom 1.

Maybe they'll release the technical info on it (schematics, etc - yeah right...)

A CMVS (A regular one, not a fagged out Jerry Lewis KPJ special) costs just as much as a phantom now so if they intend to sell many, the price should be under $300.

Like others have already said, if they don't make a cart case standard for it then they should just can the project all together. But most of there stuff looks very professional, and there NDS kits have cart cases so hopefully that is just a prototype the pic.

There is still a demand for Phantom-1's and if this Super Phantom plays 100% of the library that would be great.

Agreed - the guy shows it with mS5, I guess as proff it works even with the later games.

I would certainly buy one if the price is reasonable - I have been put off the phantom as it doesn't play all games.

I think there is a demand for the reverse phantom which allows you to plug your AES carts in your MVS slot mobo/ arcade cabinet. WHy cant they make one of those? I have a collection of AES carts that I would love to just plug into my cab without having to take out and plug in my AES.

Agreed, and some AES are cheaper/more readily available than its MVS counterpart.

Exactly. I paid ~$350 for my CMVS (MV-1FZ) total, and it has a Neobitz board, Stereo Mod, wired controller ports, and test and credit switches in there to boot. The adapter would really have to be $200 or less, and play the whole library of MVS games to be worth it.

After all is said and done, CMVS is still the way to go. :chimp:

Here are the prices - note that the finish product will also have a casing (i.e. not a bare PCB like this demo unit):

- Neo MVS converter: $299 - Manufacturers guarantees that 100% of new original carts are playing. I'd love to get a test unit to confitm.

- PC-E 64M: $139
- PC-E 128M: $159

Interested people can email me so that I can let you know when pre-orders open at akibagames.com ;)

PC-E 128M: $159

Tempting. I could fit all the games I wanted on that and still probably have 120MB spare :D

Actually, would using that bypass the region coding? In other words, could I play US Neutopia I/II on a Core Grafx?

Are we so sure Ray has stopped making them? Mysteriously, each time Arcade Shock sells out of them, lo and behold a new batch comes in. I've also seen a seller on eBay regularly selling brand new/sealed converters for sale, and they happen to be located in Canada.

I think it might be more like !Arcade! is not selling them directly anymore...

As far as playing the SNK-Playmore games I hope so. As far as the price I'd say it would be the same $250-275, if it's anything less than that and plays the SNK-P games I will buy one.

Xian Xi
01-05-2006, 02:11 PM
$299? Hmmm. I gotta think about that. There's not many SNK-P games I really want to get anywho. If it was $249 then I'd sell me P-1 and get it.

I would finally get an AES setup if this thing works with EVERY MVS game....otherwise....its just more junk to blow money on, I would rather just buy a 1slot and consolize it if its 300+ bucks for the converter.

I don't think you'll need holes since according to the manufacturer and others that have posted in this thread it's going to have it's own case/shell.

I meant to respond to this but forgot...

Yes, you will definitely need to mod the system to play US games on a JP system (the simpler pin #29 mod). No question about it since it is beyond the pin difference, the processor is actually region detecting. And the only way it'll work to play JP on a US console without any mods is if the flash carts supports pin-flipping, which I doubt. That is possible though.

According to Neo Flash it does and you can play any game on any console without any concern for the region - this still needs to be tested and just like the Neo MVS converter, the PC-E flash won't be ready for another month.

I think this is true since on their site they dont say that it is compatible with all games it says "Our MVS convertor support ALL original game carts directly,and sure, it support these too" which is basically saying they didnt throughly test each game to ENSURE compatibility, it sounds like they are hoping it does.

No, that's just the maximum intensity that PSU delivers, if the system needs less it just draws what it needs.

In any case different neo revisions use different psu's and need different current so that's going to be a tough situation.

Anyway that psu rivals the 360 one :kekeke:

They lost another buyer right here. $300 for the converter and $40 for the super PSU is not a rip-off... it's a fuckin' rip-off.

I agree but you need to make the "f" in fuckin' capital, thats how much of a rip it is. You might as well go CMVS for that price, seriously.

I think we still need clarification on just what the power requirements are of their adapter.

I would think if none of the Neo adapters would work then they would have packaged both the converter and adapter together.

My convertor just arrived, unfortunately I have no MVS carts to test it on yet, unless someone lives near Portland and wants to bring some carts over for me to test. I have faith that my standard PSU will work.

I'm still wondering how snug the fit will be since the cart goes into a "cup" to hold it. I noticed that some MVS carts are slightly fatter than others, so will this be a problem or maybe it wasnt even considered in pre-production.

Can you post some pics? I'm curious to see the final product, instructions, packaging, etc.

Also, here's the reply from "Dr.neo" on the whole adapter issue:

700MA AC adapter can't boot the SNK MVS cart,only show the white screen in my AES.

It's works great (continue run 2 days) after i use the super AC adapter.
i don't have the original SNK AC adapter more than 700MA,so i can't make sure how much current is enough.

So it looks like it has to do with the ammount of power needed for the MVS cart itself, not the adapter? Does this make sense to anyone?

Doesnt make sense to me, I mean I use my P1 with my OEM plug.

Sorry I don't have a digital camera, but I will tell you that it's black not grey, so it matches the AES and carts well. it says Super MVS-SNK convertor on the front with an arrow pointing down and it has a power light and a little openining where you can adjust something on the boards with a screwdriver(?) not sure what it's used for. On the back it says NEO TEAM 2006. The unit is very solid, the plastic is a bit waxy though and had insert marks after plugging it in once, however I don't think this is an issue, it feels like a good quality product. Also typical of these kinds of items from China there wasn't any real box or instructions just a plain cardboard box with my name written across it. It was packed well though.

This is one hell of a test situation. The only person who has one has no MVS games?


Good God someone get over there with a Samurai Shodown game worth $10 bux. LOL

No, it really sux cause I have to help my GF move next week from San Diego, and so my budget for MVS carts is on hold. Hey if someone in San Diego has an NGH system and MVS carts I can bring the convertor over to test.

I was actually looking forward to this, but after realizing that getting a 1-slot + a supergun would set me back for waaaay less, I figured it's not worth a shot anymore.

I know WHY it's 300$, it's just not WORTH 300$.

And strangely, my official AES JP SNK AC (wow that's a lot of acronyms) adapter is 1000ma! I wonder what he's using..
