I know that MAS has a web site but I can not seem to find it could somone post the link. Also I am interested to know if they have a store? Shawn, have you ever been to Mas? Your real close to them. Im about 3 hours away myself. If it meant I could get a reliable Super Neo conversion, WHILE I WAIT, I would go there in a heartbeat.

I was thinking they were in Memphis, but they are not. Actually Mas is in Chatanooga, less then 1& 1/2 hours from me (more like 3 from Shawn??)

They are in California, so you are nowhere near them, me thinks.... Jeff is over in Ohio, you could try him for a super Neo conversion, he is the moderator in this forum!

Iv always been a bit apprehensive about sending my Neo in to someone. What if they break it on me http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

You will not have a problem with Jeff Kurtz at all, he does fine work! Not too many people still do Neo conversions. The only others offering them are NGF. I have not seen their work, so I can not comment.

Well if your worried about your sysytem, then worry about MAs. IMO they are horrible. shoddy work, and even worse customer service. As in none.

Im not placing judgment on anyone, just saying that I would rather GO somewhere to have it done in person while I wait, than SEND my system with money, and loose possibly both. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

I doubt you will find anyone that will do it for you locaaly, unless you drive a good distance. I could be wrong though....

Only other option is to do the mod yourself.

Well, at some point you need to trust SOMEONE. No one is going to mod the system with you standing over them watching, that just isn't realistic.

I was a bit worried at first, before I sent my Neo cart system to Jeff for the 4X mod (also known as "the works"). But the solution is to send your system to him, insured and with delivery confirmation. His price for the 4X mod (s-video, stereo, arcade debug, and two external buttons that are territory and arcade/home toggles) is very reasonable, and his work is, in a word, outstanding. You can trust him absolutely, I had my system modded and he did a fantastic job. In fact, I have another (backup) cart system that I will also send to Jeff for the 4X mod.

Also, I have the necessary carts to send him for a Metal Slug conversion, which I will be doing within the next few days.

We are all very lucky to have Jeff doing these mods and conversions. If I were you, I'd throw your doubt in the trash can and get moving, have him do the work while you still can. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

has anyone in here ever had a Stick made for their neo by Mas Systems??? How was the quality, and did it feature the same layout as the Original Neo-Geo stick???? I would love to buy one but I need to know if they are any good or not...

Any help would be appreciated...My e-mail address is BryLmoo@aol.com

Iv seen them... They are true at-home arcade quality... Very heavy like they have a brick inside of them... for $69 you cant go wrong. Im after a set myself before they stop making them.

$69 is a good price; do they make sticks for other platforms in addition to the neo? What kindof perks (auto-fire, slow-motion) do these sticks also come with?

I just got a neo geo stick from MAS 2 days ago. I have had a pair in the past but I sold them off (not because I didn't like them, but because I thought I was going to sell out of neo). Anyways, the quality is superb. The orignal neo geo sticks feel cheap in comparison IMO.

Are the sticks really big?? I meen are they huge to the point that you would have to sit them on a table to play with them??? I know they are 10lbs, but I still can't tell If it would be comforting to have on my lap while playing a Neo game....or gem as I've recently been calling them =P

Just a word of warning. These things are so large & heavy that they can build up too much momentum from the slightest movement & go turntabling around on your lap. I've had mine for.. I'm not sure how long now, maybe since March, and while the quality is quite high, they can almost be overkill. The CD joysticks fly around because they're too light; these can, but don't necessarily, for precisely the opposite reason. In short, get a table or a tray to put the thing on, otherwise you might at times have difficutly playing a fighter with one of these beasts.

BryLmoo

I intend on using my TV tray that I have in my den, I hope it is big enough...how big is one of these things??? Can someone please post a pic of a Mas Stick beside a Neo stick so I can compare the sizes??? I would really appreciate it.

Force

Shpoo: I'm glad to know you're enjoying your sticks. So you bought them as an extra set?

Matt

Force: Yeah I bought them so I wouldn't wear out the orig. Neo joysticks.

BryLmoo: Hopefully this picture shows up.

Can you order different colors?? The one in your pic is RED, and I would like either blue, black, or green...do you think they would make one in one of those colors for me?

Todd
10-12-2000, 06:47 PM
Just ordered mine but they said they have to wait till they make more. Who knows how long ill be waiting for them? Oh well i can be patient!

Don't know about custom colours, but there is at least one more version of the joystick, as seen below. Nevermind the rest of the stuff. It was part of a set of collection photographs that haven't yet been put to use.

BryLmoo
10-14-2000, 12:35 PM

Hey Everyone,
I had a question concerning the 4x mod that Jeff does,does anyone know how much Jeff charges for that service and about how long it takes to get it done? Any info would be appreciated, =) I'm looking to upgrade the work that MAS originally did on it and get the s-video, stereo and new bios options for it.Thanks!
Sincerely,
Ricky Fernandez

Hey Dark Fact, Jeff's prices for that service are VERY reasonable! I just had him do the 4x mod on my Neo home system, and he did a FANTASTIC super-professional job, worth EVERY PENNY!!

Anyway, to get his rate just email him and ask, to jmkurtz@macola.com http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Dark Fact

Hey Chimpmeister,
Thank you very much for the recommendation and e-mail info! It is much appreciated, I'll be contacting Jeff right away, I'm anxious to get that 4x Mod done! http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

No problem, Ricky. Glad to help. We're all very fortunate to have Jeff in the Neo community, doing this kind of excellent work! If he weren't offering this service, I'm not sure where I'd go to get this work done, if at all . . .

Or if you play with a friend, buy the MAS double stick. Does anyone here actually own one of those? I can imagine it being good for the SNES, and the Genesis, but the Neo? Somehow it seems like it wouldn't work out that well, at least with regard to fighting games. Could be good for other genres, but I don't know. I'm thinking of hunting for one, so if anyone has some opinions, do share.

Todd
11-01-2000, 06:13 PM
Yeah i just got my mas stick today and i havent stopped playing MOTW all day. Id suggest that people should buy one!
