Just ordered mine (AES ver) the bank did not block anything, now onto the waiting game.
Thanks to "Rot the awesome" I have the original releases so I should be set for good (that's all I really care for).
One suggestion, I paid in EUR (rather than the conversion offered by their payment provider) and it turns out I saved some money so keep that in mind if you have a credit card that does not charge for currency conversions (we are talking a 4% savings on the total price, yes I am that cheap)

What in the world are you standing by for? They've made it exceedingly easy to set up: grab the tool, point it to a folder, paste the results in your SD card, enjoy.

There is no definite date.
Once they have cleared current orders, they will start to ship the free shells. A few weeks I'd say.

Xian's completely right. There is a certain orientation that MVS labels are supposed to have. If you have a vertical-loading board, it's very clear where the front of the cart is supposed to be. But since you can apparently reverse the boards in the shell, it's a non-issue.

My fault because I'm a total noob when it comes to downloading, uploading, converting, and all of the other technical terminology used to make the NEOSD work.

Clearly customs have been stepping up their searches over the past weeks and I suspect it will only increase with packages arriving to the USA in the future.

So I've read most of this thread's pages (60-70 of them) and kept up with all the drama. Now it's my turn to order the AES NeoSD.

So if I'm correct:

1) I notify my bank (Lloyds) I have to make an overseas payment and not to block it?
2) Purchase NeoSD AES through credit card
3) Wait

That explains why my NeoCD pad was drilled. That white dust didn't help.

Looks good. Can I get/buy a MVS-neosd sticker from you? :D


Neosd team made the right choice, a lots of people here do not imagine the price of a mold, I find already fine that they have decided to make a shell, many others would stay at the pcb.

Now, assuming they had the budget for only one mold
, It was necessary to choose between the mvs or the aes and the most logical choice was the aes for many reason:

1: mvs cartridge can be find at low prices , generally less than the aes

2: mvs are easily openable with screws, the aes are clipped and therefore does not offer easy access to the pcb

3: AES cart being smaller can fit into the mvs, not the reverse.

If you are not happy with your shell, buy on ebay a cheap mvs and took his shell : the one on the picture cost me about 25 euros shipping included.

Given that now we know customs can "drill around", and that it seems so far that no damage to the PCBs has been inflicted, what would one do if he/she is victim of "drilling"?
I really appreciate NeoSD taking care of OGHUGO, but say I am next "to get drilled" will I get a replacement shell? (I'd be fine paying shipping for it) .... mind you I do NOT want a free SECOND shell pretending to have been drilled, I am only asking what would the stance be going forward now that the "drill-a-roo" has been brought forth.

According to Raz the situation will increase :annoyed:, it's quite possible ....
To avoid damage in the future , the solution may be to sent the neosd with a disassembled shell ?

I don't think there is to much you can do about it in all cases given customs have a right to spot check items coming into the country.

If you are the receiver - If customs have followed protocol you should have red/orange tape around the package saying it has been opened. When you see that, start taking photos/video as you open the package. Unfortunately customs do not always correctly indicate a package has been opened. Its best to always take video and photos if you think the package has been opened and resealed. Personally I feel one should always take video of package opening when buying exspensive items from abroad. It protects you and also clears doubts in the senders mind if something is amiss.

If you are the sender and its a new item being sent - A seal sticker on on the box the item is packed inside would be helpful given the receiver will know if the product has been accessed. Better information on what the item is (on the customs declaration) can also help and there is no harm in adding a message like 'contains electrical parts, if item requires a full customs check, please open via the 4 screws to gain access inside. I guess you could also include a postit type note on the physical shell with information for customs on how to easily open the shell without drilling.

In the case of the NeoSD directly it could be an idea to not cover the hole which does not contain the sdcard with the serial number sticker. No garantee but it might be that if customs want to look inside they go through there without the need of drilling or opening the shell at all. Some customs officers will be trained to see that sticker placed where it is as trying to hide something. One needs to imagine how the NeoSD would look in the eyes of a customs officer as it passes through a xray scanner given there will be what looks like an empty compartment at the back of the shell.

In some countries it is possible to request if the package needs to be checked that it be done under the supervision of the receiver. The downside of this is it might require the receiver traveling many miles and it is still no garantee. Sometimes customs checks can happen before items even leaves the country of posting, espicially when there is a suspicion of contraband (drugs/bomb material etc) that is illegeal in the country of sending.

Bottom line for the NeoSD given its a new prodect being sent, it may be cheaper to simply send free replacement shells (and PCBs if damaged) when this happens than the money spent trying to get customs to be careful which may end up not being 100% successful.

Just thought i would chime in as i feel sorry for the guy who had his shell drilled. This sort of thing DOES happen at customs and i myself had it happen with no explanation, tape etc etc. It is very unlikely and unfortunate in this case but it DOES happen. Also you have to ask yourself why would he do such a thing ?

I think NeoSD should take a break and start thinking logically (with all respect) as you obviously have produced a great product and have a great deal of support but in this instance i think you are wrong.

Also , possibly slightly more brutally, this wasn't produced as charity and you are able to sell for a considerable amount. Your skills, expertise, knowledge and enthusiasm are fantastic but lets not suggest this is entirely altruistic...

I think there is a clear distinction between people trying to make money in this hobby (mistly in fraudolent ways) and fans willing to make something available to the community.

NoeSD team clearly falls under the latter category IMO, and I wouldn't be surprised if the money they are asking will make them even with cost or just enable to continue on next project.

So to say, this has been a project made by passion mostly, rather than business, hence we could all understand these kind of situations?

Got mine today and I am very pleased up to now. :)
Works like a charm. Yet, one reason I wanted the NeoSD for was to play the uncensored version of Samurai Shodown 5 Special without the need of a unibios. I thought if I start the MVS Rom version I would get the uncensored version because the code of the MVS Rom should be unaltered. But I can't execute the overkill moves. Seems this is locked somehow. :(
But nontheless, a great buy.

PS Only problem I encountered is to put the cartridge into the the slots. I had to use some force while wiggeling the cart. To me it seems to be the be the width of the PCBs. Someone tried to rasp the edges a bit?

For me the MVS version is incredibly easy to insert/remove. In fact a standard MVS cart is more difficult.

Consider there are 3 versions of SS5 Special:

* Samurai Shodown V Special: The original MVS version, uncensored. [Maybe you want to play this one.]
* Samurai Shodown V Sp (AES Ori): The original AES version, censored.
* Samurai Shodown V Special (AES): The 'fixed' AES version, less censored.

I already used the MVS version. (easy to recognize by the missing practice option). My guess is that the MVS version plays in an AES with "Violence Off" dip-switch setting.

Happy brand new NeoSD owner here, with my first Neo Geo AES bought a few weeks ago (so I really do know very little about this console).
Big thanks to Rot for sorting me out with the .neo files in chat yesterday.

One thing I'd missed when reading about the front-end was that it has handy filter/genre options, which I really like.

I only have two minor issues so far. Firstly, my plastic shell is a little loose around the joins at the bottom, especially near the micro SD slot. i.e. it seems like it's open by about 2mm. The screws are already tight so I think maybe the plastic is just slightly warped. I've put a bit of tape over it to make it flush for now. Do any other AES version owners have the same issue?

Secondly, sometimes after inserting the cart I get badly distorted graphics, eg all the writing on the NeoSD menu is "doubled" up making it illegible. Powering off and reseating the cart fixes this. For all I know this could be a normal issue with all AES carts? Or maybe an issue with my AES cart slot?

Like I say, minor issues, which aren't likely to spoil my enjoyment of this fantastic device. Thanks NeoSD team!

Thanks so much for sharing Rot! Everything works like a charm first try :) I have zero complaints regarding NeoSD! I am using a Neo Geo Omega, and yes the sticker is backwards, but honestly guys is that such a big deal? The load times are much better than I expected as well. I didn't count, but the first game I loaded was Baseball Stars 2 and I think it took no more than 15 seconds to load. Pretty impressive!

Best purchase I've made all year! Thanks everyone here for the help to get my payment sent to NeoSD as well as helping with support and info.

He seems to be in bed with the other guys, so I'm guessing he's going to make a set more for that cart than one suitable for us.
TBH - there's nothing wrong with the set Rot has pointed us to, so I don't see SmokeMonsters being any better - it may just be more accessible without registering here and trying to obtain the password (in the space of one more week or whatever).

Got my NeoSD MVS in yesterday, got it loaded up and brought it into work this morning to test out on my MV-1C cabinet while I wait for my CMVS to arrive - it's pretty spectacular, to say the least.

The system and region setting all work as expected and was able to load up AES versions of games without the need for a Unibios. The microSD I inserted into it has to be about 4-5 years old at this point but is still on-par with the flash times that people have been reporting.

I am highly satisfied with this investment and may purchase a second MVS cart to leave at work at some point in the future. A huge thanks to the NeoSD team for making this a reality!

Hi all!

Have been following this thread but even now that i backed up around 15-20 pages i still cannot find what i am looking for.
I can see there is an MVS and an AES version. Is anything different in the actual flash cart, or is it really just the shell that is different? If that is the case, it makes more sense to buy the AES version then find a cheap/broken mvs game to salvage an MVS shell to put it in, if i want to play the Neosd on my cmvs.

Just wondering what is different between the 2, other than the shell (even if that is different at all, product photo shows identical right now at the website)?

Obviously the carts could be really different with each other, just wondering if there is a way to buy one and play on both, which one makes more sense to buy etc..

Thanks!

I don't want to assume, but this basically reads like you're missing that AES and MVS are different systems. If you want to use NeoSD on your CMVS, then you need the MVS version. Both flavors of NeoSD come with an AES-style shell.

geodeath
04-04-2017, 07:24 AM
Well i do know they are different systems, but i (kinda hoped i know) thought that it might be possible to use 1 cart for both, much like flash carts for other systems that work across versions/ranges. Of course this assumes the same pinout etc, but my knowledge is limited, hence the noob question.

Well i do know they are different systems, but i (kinda hoped i know) thought that it might be possible to use 1 cart for both, much like flash carts for other systems that work across versions/ranges. Of course this assumes the same pinout etc, but my knowledge is limited, hence the noob question.

Thanks for clarification! :)
You can use the MVS cart in the AES system, using an adapter.

The hardware inside the AES and MVS cartridges is slightly different, AES cartridges contain extra hardware that is not present in MVS ones, and that changes the actual data that is obtained from the cart, so a simple connector change is not possible.

There are adapters that do the conversion but they aren't officially supported by NeoSD. Some people have been using them with different degrees of success but most of them present different problems due to missing or incorrect wiring between the AES connector and the MVS pins that original games don't use, but NeoSD does. Also these converters can only convert a MVS cart to work on an AES board, but not the opposite.

It was a typo, we wanted to say as March, not May.

We have every single order shipped until yesterday evening. We will continue shipping by monday as usual.

As today we have stock, but i have to say stock is flying fast.
We are already waiting for a new batch so on worst scenario the waiting for a neosd is going to be about 2 weeks.
We are trying this 2 weeks period will become the usual waiting amount of time when neosd is not in stock, no more months waiting for a NEOSD, just 2 weeks.

Hello,

After the first shells production, the factory asked us to wait some weeks until place another order (they had a lot of pending work on factory).
So we did, 3 weeks ago we placed another shells order for the free shells, last tuesday i had a meeting at the factory and yesterday i got confirmation that the free shells will be produced 21th of this month.
If factory does his part and they produce the shells on 21th (friday), we will start shipping the free shells on 24th (monday) or 25th (tuesday) of this same month.

Just wanted to give my first impressions and THANKS on the device (AES version).

Tested with 3-5 rev (9V) AES, running on a 9V 3A non-OEM switching power supply; UniBIOS 3.2 Free w/ Memory card; RGB bypass, LED reset mod on a PVM 20 inch via RGB.

Payment accepted 3/29, order acknowledged 3/31, shipped 4/4, delivered 4/7 (USA).

9.5/10. Suffice to say I am very pleased with the investment and service so far.. one day in.

Plus:

* Works well with easily available filesets (estimate 90+% of common files are available via simple search)
* Excellent documentation included (in actual English)
* Shopping cart/site/support login system works great
* Software works well enough, easy to use (requires Windows)
* Reasonable shipping options (pay for the good shipping)
* GUI is very nice, responsive and easy to use. Extremely happy with usability.
* SD card slot is easily accessible when removed from system

Cons:

* Software requires Windows
* AES cart is a little tight in AES slot
* AES cart socket fit is extremely tight in cartridge connector(s).
* Software (or .neo format) should be documented for use under Linux (are the files simply concatenated?)
* MD5s of good files would be helpful
* I would love the option of moving the PCBs to a real cartridge without voiding the warranty (I have a few empty carts), the included shell isn't quite perfect but is acceptable.
* Doesn't fit into a standard shockbox. A custom shockbox would be nice, at least.

Sidenotes:

* AES version requires memory card to save Region/Console type.
* The label is the least of my concerns.

Keep up the great work, Neodev.

Interesting 'cons' you've listed there. Two being about it only working with windows (run a vm..), one being a dig at great case the neosd team have painstakingly worked to get right and another about it not fitting properly into a shock box which was made with MVS cartridges in mind.

Sorry, not meant to be a dig or insult. Just giving my feedback as a user, nothing to be taken personally.

I have access to Windows, and the user software works well enough, but as a more technical user I found myself curious.

I should have mentioned it doesn't fit into an AES shock box.

Again, not trying to insult anyone, so no drama intended. Just user feedback.

If you read the "readme.txt"....



Building your own neo tools

Neo files are just a header, and then all the uncompressed, decrypted rom data, so you can build your own tools to create or manage them. The header length is exactly 4KB, although it's mostly unused, reserved for future expansion:
struct NeoFile
{
uint8_t header1, header2, header3, version;
uint32_t PSize, SSize, MSize, V1Size, V2Size, CSize;
uint32_t Year;
uint32_t Genre;
uint32_t Screenshot;
uint32_t NGH;
uint8_t Name[33];
uint8_t Manu[17];
uint8_t Filler[128 + 290]; //fill to 512
uint8_t Filler2[4096 - 512]; //fill to 4096
}

Then the rom data follows as is, uncompressed and decrypted in the order they appear in the header: P,S,M,V1,V2,C, according to the size specified in the header.

If your game contains merged ADPCM-A and B areas (neo-pcm), then V2Size must be 0. Separate ADPCM areas is not supported for custom/homebrew games yet.
As you can see, any area with a size of 0 will actually be skipped by neosd when loading, so you can quickly test, for example, program changes without rewritting the other areas, by creating a neo with only P data, filled PSize and 0 for the rest of the areas.

The screenshot to game mapping can be checked in order.txt
Genre ids are the following (starting in 0, ascending value):
enum Genre { Other=0, Action, BeatEmUp, Sports, Driving, Platformer, Mahjong, Shooter, Quiz, Fighting, Puzzle};

Thanks for the info Niko, it's very useful and adds some insight into the NeoSD, however, from my limited understanding, some empty spaces seem to remain: how are the 3 header values filled? are they constant? how does the already-existing tool knows which values to add for V1 and V2 sizes? Are sizes in bits or bytes? I guess there are pre-made tables for all the existing games to fill these values, (or some other autodetection method), but such method seems to be not publicly available yet. Therefore, a complete linux (or OSX, or whatever) tool cannot yet be made without some wheel-reinventing (re-creating such method of autodetection). I am interested in making such tool for Linux and OSX even if I do not have a NeoSD, just to help a little bit to this community.

I do not think I mentioned having trouble with the tool, Raz. In fact, I am not a user of it, my question was more from a technology stand point, to know if it was considered to open source the tool or if it will be kept closed source, that's all.

Simply because I like to help port (or create) useful tools to Linux and OSX when these do not exist, like the tool for your cart. I am not the most proficient programmer out there, but I can give it a shot and maybe come with a usable result, so if I want to create a tool for other OS (like I explained before) I'd need to have certain information. If you can't provide it, it's cool, proprietary software is an option too, I just prefer free/open source one, and see a chance to help the community a bit here, nothing else.

Taking a look at the NeoBuilder, it looks like the 3 header values are constant "NEO", each byte broken into its respective header. The "XSize" variables are combined size of the respective roms in bytes. Everything is byteswapped, and NGH number is stored as binary coded decimal.

I need to dig into it some more to figure out how it determines whether or not the ADPCM A/B are combined.

The .neo format description is mostly intended for homebrew developers who want to make their own tool if needed.

P data is byteswapped, C data is interleaved (MAME style), the rest of the rom data is copied as is. The decision to use combined or split ADPCM areas can't be done from the roms themselves, as it depends on the cart having the NEO-PCM address multiplexer. Games including this chip (or equivalent) have combined ADPCM areas, the ones that don't contain it (early SNK games) have split areas.
The current firmware can't use separate ADPCM areas for games that it doesn't know, as it has an internal table to know which games have NEO-PCM chips, but the next firmware will take a look at the header and if V2Size is not 0, it will use split areas for unknown games.

This is helpful in the event the team disbands or a user finds a bug that you do not have the resources/need to fix. There may be additional functionality or compatibility that a third-party developer may be able to fix. I personally already had a large collection of files that were usable, but it would have been nice to have a way to confirm them via linux (commandline) in large batches and clear out any errors/problems quickly.

I understand that Windows is the largest target audience, and I appreciate you making the tools available. However, making sources available wherever possible helps the product achieve a longer lifecycle (and sales potential) than would be normally possible.

Thanks again for the amazing product. I'm super pleased with the purchase and would recommend it to anyone looking for this type of solution.

A+, NeoSD team.

Hello,

We donエt have plans to acept paypal.

We donエt really want to spend a single minute dealing with paypal cases, paypal fees and so.

We preffer to sell less and not deal with paypal.

Some may disagree with that, but life without dealing with paypal stuff is better.

Thanks

Thats too bad, but having never been on the business end of a PayPal transaction I've never had to deal with the negative aspects of it (PayPal). It would have been nice to use their credit option so I could pay off the bill in installments without any interest charges, as opposed to a credit card. But I understand if its not an option on your end; I appreciate you replying.

Guess its time to start thinning my collection heard out and come up with some cash for this.

Any word if you might partner with a US online store? Maybe one of those that already sells Everdrives?

Yes, it's true that they have partnered with Stone Age Gamer but they had to fulfill all their first preorders made directly through them first. Stone Age Gamer made the announcement on their Facebook page but nothing has been announced since. I assume they are waiting for update on inventory from Terrunion. My guess is that SAG's price point will piss a lot of people off...But they have to make a profit somewhere. Their packaging is nice but I wasn't willing to wait the longer time frame or pay another $100(my best guess at the extra cost) for a pretty box.

Hello everyone,

We just have sent the 1.06 firmware version to GadgetUK, Sceptre_JLRB and others.

We have already tested the firmware but as allways, issues may show. So as previous versions we will wait for coments and if everything goes well we will compile the firmware for everyone else.

Those are major changes the 1.06 firmware (among with a lot of minor ones :) )


1 - jukebox,


To launch jukebox, just press start on "Launch Last Game" menu option,
it will show the jukebox option there.
To have named tracks in Jukebox, it uses BridgeM1 compatible lists. You
need to either create or download them. The best place
to get them is http://www.e2j.net/downloads.html and download the "list
pack (utf - 8)" file (direct link: http://www.e2j.net/files/lists.7z).
You must now create a folder in the SD named MUSICLIST and place the
contents of the "en" folder of the 7z file into that folder, so
there is, for example, a file named wakuwak7.dat file right in the
MUSICLIST folder in the SD (not in an "en" folder).


2 - better backup ram handling

Now everytime a game starts, the backup ram is loaded from the SD card and it gets saved on the game ends.
So if the backup ram is broken on the mvs board, it should work aswel

3 - Softdips configuration :


Softdips can be setup from neosd menu for each individual game, just the same way those can be configured from the neo geo test menu.
The configuration can be accessed pussing start button over any of the games on the neosd menu gamelist, you dont need to flash a game to change the configuration, you can do it over any game on the list.
Soft dips are saved individually per game

4 - Change to MVS mode on AES without unibios (only on FREEPLAY mode), cause AES BIOS cant handle credits

5 - New MAME roms added such as KOF 99 Korean release and others

6 - You can also enter the MVS bios setup menu from the neosd menu by pressing start on "launch last game" and selection the bios test mode option.

Thanks

Also, we have started working on a FAQ on the webshop, we would like to hear aditions, sugestions and corrections (engrish language and so ;)) to improve it. We plan to make a troubleshooting section aswel so for now this is only about how to get the setup working and questions related to that subject, not to issues that may show (issues will be on the troubleshooting section)

Awesome, does this mean that you can simulate BRAM on AES?
If so does it mean that when playing any MVS game on AES we may be able to have BRAM automatic save/restore feature?
[UniBIOS has something like that for HighScores already but ii would be cool to have full BRAM support in MVS mode ... not the whole 64K just one single slot would be good enough imho]

Hi folks & forks!

Glad to inform I'm currently testing the new NeoSD firmware v1.06 on my consolized MVS, and would like to share my impressions and give you a preview of its new features, which are just awesome and quite useful, besides working great so far:


1) Better save management: Now the .BUP backup RAM files, which store hi-scores and softDIP configurations, are handled directly on the microSD card, irrespective of the MVS backup RAM internal memory. Thereby, unlimited saves are preserved forever, even in case of MVS backup RAM failure or battery exhaustion. Previous game saves with their hi-scores and softDIP settings are maintained and new ones are properly stored. (Please, notice that some games -such as Twinkle Star Sprites, Ghost Pilots, Ninja Commando, Magician Lord, etc.- naturally reset hi-scores on a daily basis, showing only 'Today's Hi-Scores'. This could be fixable with a patch, but I personally prefer them to behavior as the original versions.)

2) Jukebox: For every game, this feature can be accessed calling up a menu by pressing START on 'Launch corrent game' on the NeoSD menu. It uses track/sounds names previously downloaded and placed in a new folder on the microSD card, but also allows to explore manually the game code looking for sound files. Not to mention this is a pretty wonderful extra for a flashcart.

44410
The new menu shown by pressing START on 'Launch current game' on the NeoSD menu, including two new features: Soft DIPs and Jukebox.

44411
The Jukebox in action with its nice graphical interface for such a blast of a game, Blazing Star, showing track titles. Sound files can also be explored by using the 'Manual sound code entry' option at the top.

3) Soft-DIP configuration: Now it is possible to directly configure game options with no need to access the MVS Soft-DIP configuration menu, which is much more handy and quick. Soft-DIP settings for a particular game can be accessed either from the menu showed by pressing START on 'Launch corrent game' on the NeoSD menu, or even from a new menu by pressing START on whichever game title from the list on the NeoSD menu, even though that game hasn't been flashed yet. Of course, there is a crosstalk between the different ways of accessing soft-DIP configurations, any setting changed on one of them is reflected on the rest. (However, changes on the 'Launch current game' for the flashed game will prevail over those performed on the game name at the game list.)

44412
Soft DIPs menu for Blazing Star as accessed from 'Launch current game' on the NeoSD menu.

44413
Detail of the new menu called up by pressing START on a particular game title from the list on the NeoSD menu, showing the Soft DIPs option.

4) MVS mode in AES: This is now possible from the NeoSD itself, although I couldn't test since I'm using NeoSD-MVS.

5) New NeoBuilder update: To be released along with the new firmware, adding two new games (KOF99 Korean versions) and correcting the snapshot for Puzzle de Pon! (previously showed that of Puzzle de Pon! R! on the NeoSD game list).

6) Additional 'side-effect': The Super Spy title screen fixed: In addition, I have found that The Super Spy title screen, which previously lacked the game title on MVS mode (a reported bug in UniBIOS 3.2), is now shown correctly. :-)


All in all, I have to say, once again: Excellent work, NeoSD team! Congratulations! These new features are turning even more perfect a product itself already perfect. I'm still testing and analyzing possible bugs (which I must admit are solved in a record time by the NeoSD team), but looking forward to the retail firmware version available to everyone. :buttrock:

Nice additions. Sceptre, just so you know, the next unibios release will stop the daily wipe of highscores in games that only have a daily highscore table, those that have two highscore tables (all time and daily) will continue to wipe the daily scores. So no ROM modding will be required to get permanent highscore saving in those games.

Also, the superspy issue was also addressed and fixed in unibios v3.3

Well, it's not actually a rom patch, but a save data patching so it's always the current day save data when it's loaded.

Yes, I just framed it that way only because thats how sceptre put it. The unibios will do the same thing as you say in making sure the date is matching. Just remember backupRAM is altered saved/loaded every time the game cycles, coin inserted etc. On my NeoSD it takes time to load/save the backupRAM save (sometimes almost a second). Is there going to be this delay with your new method or has that been sorted out?

It sounds like you will have your backupRAM saving and loading more close to how I implemented it on NeoGeoLand. Just be aware there are some situations where games currupt their own backupRAM space.

That's nice, although I'd rather prefer the 'natural' version of the game, behaving as it actually should. What about making this patching for permanent hi-scores selectable, either on the UniBIOS or on the NeoSD?

Yes, the NeoSD will take care of that, also depending on if it's the first time the game boots (backupram initialized) or not, and after each attract cycle. The Save/Load times have been improved, also, the backup ram save is asynchronous, so it will not block the game from running even if it takes 1 second (unless the game cycles very fast, then it will have to wait till the previous save operation ends).

Yes, some games overwrite their copy of the backup data sometimes, but as long as the data is there when the bios is called back, it will work (and they should do that, otherwise the bios would write that corurpted data to the actual backram)

Good to hear the load/save time is improoved.

In relation to saving, the time you have to handle with care is when someone returns to the NeoSD menu at a point where the backupRAM may be gone. You should save at this point given how the bios works or else the user could loose newly set scores.

BTW, there is a new feature of the upcoming firmware v1.06 which is worth mentioning: For those Japan-exclusive releases having the SoftDIP options only in Japanese, these are shown that way on the NeoSD using the Japanese charmap, even under a non-JAP region BIOS or UniBIOS in USA/Europe region:

44452
The Soft DIPs menu for Bakatonosama Mahjong Manyuuki, an only-Japanese SoftDIPs game, on the NeoSD with UniBIOS in USA-MVS mode.

Moreover, when using a JAP region BIOS or UniBIOS in JAP region, the SoftDIPs menu from the NeoSD for any game will be shown in Japanese instead of English:

44453
The Soft DIPs menu for Twinkle Star Sprites, a dual Japanese/English SoftDIPs game, on the NeoSD with UniBIOS in JAP-MVS mode.

That would be great! A lot of titles uses Katakana, and IIRC (but I may be wrong) the JPN BIOS shows the dip settings titles using Hiragana for those originally with Kanji.

Anyway, it would be cool renaming the set using the Japanese names, even if just with Kana...btw, what about the title screenshot? Is it possible to manually make new ones?

Seeing as it is free I would prepare for possibly never receiving one. Even if it has been promised I don't see the issue as you never paid for it in the first place. (did you?) The concern for when they will arrive to you should be extremely low on your list of priorities.

I dont think that would do down well with many people if it happens. For those that ordered before the free shell was promised its not so bad I agree because they got something for nothing. There are people however who ordered after the free shell was promised by neosd in the forums, these people could see it differently. I'm sure however neosd will come good.

donluca
05-07-2017, 04:57 AM
Correct me if I'm wrong, but the free shells thing was announced after people have made their orders, and by the time it was announced it was already over.

So, people who bought the NeoSD didn't buy it thinking of the free shell, but just the board. So I think it's ok if the free shell thing falls down, as they bought the NeoSD just for the board and the shell would have been just a nice, unexpected extra.

MattBlah
05-07-2017, 05:07 AM
No, that's not the case. A lot of us ordered after the free shell was announced. It was part of the deal. You wouldn't buy something that was buy one get one free and then allow the shop to say "well that other was free, so we don't have to give it to you". Not that NeoSD has said that, I am just saying surely you can understand why it keeps coming up.

Razoola
05-07-2017, 05:22 AM
Don, yes it was announced after many had already placed pre orders. Many people then pre ordered (after the announcement) knowing they would get a free shell before neosd stopped the offer. So you see, while some ordered and the free shell was a total gift, others ordered expecting a free shell. Its not really fair to those people if a free shell falls through, I'm sure it won't fall through though.

donluca
05-07-2017, 07:01 AM
I stand corrected, then. :)

Yeah, I can totally see those who preordered knowing they would be eligible for a free shell getting a bit upset.

Let's see how this turns out. NeoSD has still done a very nice thing getting those free shells in, I really hope it's just a matter of time, maybe due to problems related to the factories.

Still waiting mine, because i don't want to use my neoSD without a shell.
There are no answer of my PM on NeoSD Store for the free shell (ordered the 11 august 2016 !! :O)

Hello everyone,

Again, this is not about money, never has been.

We are still waiting for factory to give us another shells batch.
It was going to be two weeks ago, i went to the factory and i requested some changes.
It was going to be last week, i went to the factory and i requested some changes.

Now its going to be this week, but i think it will be mostly next week.

We are going to ship all free shells at once.

I understand it has passed a lot of time since the promisse, but what you preffer just get the pieces and start complaining or wait a little more and donエt complain ?

We donエt forget, there is always a good reason for a delay.

Please, be patient.

Hello,

They are. I am the most interested on get shells produced, ship those and forget about that.

Also please, just email us, its hard to follow a PM when you have hundreds of customers.
I tend to forget answering PMs by this reason. If someone sends me a pm, i read it, but i have no way to get a way to work with it when you have tons of pms from different people.

Does that mean that the ones of us that instead got the shell with the NeoSD (once you started selling them together) have a "bad" shell?
If you are still changing details with the factory something is not completely satisfactory, I'd like to know if possible that it's minute details. I think for example that the AES shell has the inner piece (the spacer between the 2 boards) that is to thin on the outside (the part that should touch the shell) and let the actual shell bend right at the connector instead of supporting it (it is affecting only the center of the shell, the corners seem fine) but I can live with it, just curious.

If i would be rich and own the factories we are working with, everything would be ready for tomorrow, but if so maybe i would not be producing neosd and i would be producing iphones.

Guys, we are not apple, we are a small company that produces small batches, let me put two examples :

- we were going to get an AES batch done last friday, but we will get it tomorrow, why ? cause factory had an order or 40.000 pcbs from other customer, so we the ones that produce small batches, got kicked out to make a bigger customer happy.

- we were going to have the shells 2 weeks ago, and i have to say thanks god this plastics factory wants to deal with us, you know why ? cause last week when i was there, they were producing 40.000 pieces of some sea thingle.


We are small, we do our best, get factories producing your thingle is pretty hard, you know why ? cause the first question you get is "how many pieces are you going to produce", if you are going to produce small batches, most factories just wont work with you cause they spend time to not make money.
Any batch under 10.000 pieces is an small batch for any factory, we are not on those numbers to be a good customer for them ....

Deal with factories is hard, we are doing our best to get the shells out as soon as possible, but some things take time, and this is more "give some time to the factory so they can get theyr orther stuff done" and then they can give us time, cause again, we are small customers.

Rot, i just would wish people knows how factoring works.

It has been a lot of time since our free shells promise, i know, but we are working on that, we are near to pass this episode for good.

Produce anything when you are an small company is a big effort, we just try our best. Sometimes things go well, others worst. There are human relationships among money, involved on factoring.

Just imagine if we would had an issue on the pcbs and would be forced to a recall. Thanks god we did not have such issue .... this would have been a serious problem, not produce some plastic pieces ...

Patience please

I did pay for it, I got it when I bought the AES version at full price (no discount or free shell included in price and it was fine by me), the AES version was never sold naked PCB afaik.

I was just curious as to what "fixes" they made, I'm sorry I phrased it wrong.
I thought they said the shells are the same among MVS/AES so if one needs fixes the other could as well.

I am not giving them problems for asking? Am I?
And I was just curious as to what the "fix" are?
Maybe the manufacturing factory simply gave them a subpar product to no fault of their own or they used the wrong plastic ... there's tons of explanations.

NeoSD Shell is apparently the same shape as a normal AES shell, so snap lock or soft cases should be fine.

Excellent. Somehow it feels wrong to use a shockbox for an AES game, so I was planning to get a snap case and try editing aku's design to fit.

Given that I have spare shockboxes this is probably proof that I'm crazy. Either that, or a totally normal AES owner.

If we have stock, we ship the same day or next day (if we dont have any factory travel, meeting or any kind of time stealer ...)
We have been out of MVS stock for two weeks, sorry for the ones that had to wait for the MVS shipment, it dosent matters how many we produce, everything gets sold faster than we think.


As today we have stock for both MVS and AES, the deadline for UPS shipping is 15:00 Spanish hour, everything sold before this hour should get shipped on the same day.
For Correos we go to postal office the same day aswel, after UPS has picked the packets.

I regret having selected ’Correos’ as the way shipping. XD
I hope Neosd arrive safely.

Yes,

I saw your pm, and your order today, we will ship your order with the free shell on the same package, next week. Thanks for your order.

My coment was for the guys that over the last months asked about change shipping address for the free shells (they purchased the boards with a different shipping address than the actual one). Time has passed and its a pain to realize the shipping changes, so the better way to do it, is for the ones that require to change shipping address from the original order to a different one, just edit the shipping address on the webshop.

Anyways, we will send an email 2 or 3 days before shipping to remind everyone about that.

We still havent decided the shipping method, we have a meeting with DHL next week, UPS shipping is expensive and correos shipping is cheap but i spent 1 hour everday at correos office for much less shipments and i am totally tired about that, so we are looking for alternatives.

Also, as you may know, this month Stone Age Gamer will start selling Neosds, we could not serve them units before cause the same reason we were not able to deliver the free shells, now the shells issue is solved and we are glad to work with them as worldwide distributors, they are pretty nice people.

Thanks

Your better off dealing with Correos. DHL and LaserShip are far by the two worst shipping carriers in the States, don't know how they are in Europe.

I've purchased from Stoneage a few times and never had any issues. Glad to see you working with them.

Will Stoneage use different artwork like they do with the everdrives or is it going to be the same?
