I sorta tend to agree with you... but I can also see that a lot of people brought this in the hope it would work with their AES setups as there was no AES version announced at the time...

If you can solve it via firmware updates... why not I say...

I know what you're saying Niko... but hell... if they can fix it as a team.. it just makes the device more attractive...

xROTx

PS... Don't forget... you can't play the AES version in an MVS setup... so it tends to make sense for people with both AES and MVS setups to use just one of the devices..

Well, they are not officially supported, but we want to be sure that the next firmware update doesn't break the compatibility with the ones that are already working. So with the new firmware, some other converters may work or may not, but the ones that were working with the stock one, should be kept working.

It seems like some of the converters don't properly pass all the cartridge lines that NeoSD requires from the AES connecto to the MVS one, (they might not be passed at all, or are wired in a wrong order), and that might be the cause that NeoSD only works with some converters, and that's something that can't be fixed with a firmware update.

The unibios I understand, but what's this about having to mod the AES for better video quality? I thought it did RGB natively if I use a euro scart cable. In any case, I ended up buying an Omega earlier today. I'm sure it's well worth my money. Just have to settle on what controller I need. What's everyone's opinion on the best controller for someone who just bought a neo geo? The CD controller looks comfortable, but I hear it breaks easy & the button layout doesn't look ideal. This is probably the one thing I'm going to have the most trouble with. Even the kidney bean controllers are looking pricey these days.

Some later versions of the AES have a design problem where the RGB signal does not look as good. Solution (IIRC) is simply cutting three traces and it's done. Regarding the controller, I have Hori Neo II Fighting Sticks and love them, however I also have a kidney stick, modded with Xian Xi's octogonal gate and it works very well. The buttons on the kidney are not arcade buttons, so the feeling may be different.

Regards.

Neosd guys, are you still on track for shipping the AES cartridges on Jan14th?

Hello,

Unfortunally not 14th.

The shipping status as today is pending on the info at the shells meeting we have next friday.

Yesterday we got the MVS batch produced (we will pick it next friday but its produced)

Next week we will have the AES batch produced (the MVS production delay caused an AES delay of about 1 week).

So our plan is to ship both AES and MVS with shells and once we have shipped all those, we will ship shells for the first MVS batch.

Until friday we will not have more info about the shells, once we know more we will let you all know.

Thanks

Hello,

We just got an email from a customer telling us that it works on the blue phantom-1 converter


hi,
the blue phantom-1 converter works without Problems with the aes. i have stock firmwares. please write this to neogeo Forum,thanks. i want Register in the Forum.

best regards,

Thanks



Ok, this time AES with stock BIOS + Daedalus converter.

And I have good news. The menu works now without holding Start. Just the same as with Unibios.

Thanks!

Thanks

Just FYI. Did another test with the Fusion converter on AES with stock BIOS and Unibios.

Result is the same as before. Flashed game works but the NeoSD menu doesn't work.

Hello,

We did some changes today and sent those to Sceptre_JLRB, he was the only one that found a minor bug since two weeks ago.
We are waiting for his feedback, this update is almost ready. If you cant wait, just send us an email and we will send you it :)

Thanks



Thanks for the Update!

Thanks to all of you for the patience.

Everyone that worked on manufacturing something and had to deal with factories know how this works.
The good thing is that we have the pcb side pretty much shorted, we are just waiting for the shells factory to finish the work and start producing.

There is something very strange going on with the flashing times on the NeoSD. I am now trying the same sony sdcard you mentioned is fast (sony 16gig UHS1) with kof2003 and new firmware.

So to give some backstory first. The first firmware and scandisk sdcard gave me a flashtime of 4:19 with kof2003. The new firmware gave me a flash time of 3:37 for kof 2003. Now using the same flash card you mentioned would give a time around 2:50, I am only seeing a flash time of 3:27.

So the question is, where is 37 seconds being lost when using the same sdcard on different neosds... Any ideas?

My guess is some of these cards are fake - its really actually hard to tell a fake vs an original. On one occasion I've found a fake to be faster than the original (ironically)!

EDIT: The other thing I've found is if you format an SD card and use the wrong allocation size that can drasticaly affect performance - some SD cards become almost unusable at the wrong allocation size (must be some buffering related thing which is finely tuned to work with a specific size).

@gadget, I dont think its a fake card, I bought it from europe and not china. I formatted the card to 32k blocks, that is what neodev suggested to me in the past. As a referance I see it takes 50 seconds to move from the first erase cycle to say flashing.

Aren't some of them supposed to be set to 64K / 128K blocks to get optimum speed? I've got a card that if its not set to the correct block size it runs half as fast as it should.

EDIT: I've bought 2 fake cards in europe so far! Yes they will have originated from China but people in europe are selling them.

I had a recent Samsung fake that looks absolutely identical to the original. 64Gb, runs very fast, but once you get over 30Gb ish, it dies and needs reformatting. What they are doing is messing with the parition info to make the drive think its twice as big as it actually is (most people wouldn't realise its a fake until they filled it up beyond 50%). But that card also runs like a dead dog if the block size is set below its default 128K.

50s is the normal time it would take to erase the flashes for one of the bigger games (kof2k3 for example). Can you try with different sector sizes? that should make a difference. It seems your flash is working as fast as the specs say, so it might be caused by something in the SD side.

I'd recommend to anyone that buys flash media to download h2testw and run it on said flash before use.
It's awesome for sniffing out spoofed sizes and also give accurate read/write speeds while it's doing it.
I've been using it for years.

When can I download the rom tools so I can get the SD card ready?

And making payments through PayPal could make the purchase easier, my card got frozen by the fraud department when I tried to pay the first time, I had to go to my bank and talk to the fraud line from there, the explanation they gave me is that the website is flagged as a scam site on the system so it blocks the transaction instantly.

Also is there any delay for the AES version?

@NeoSD

I debated on whether or not to send this in a PM or post this here were others could discuss it as well.

As you are aware, there is a glitch when playing Samurai Shodown V Special that happens in MAME and also the NeoSD multi. Quite a few pages back I mentioned this issue and Razoola confirmed it was most likely due to a bad dump of the V Roms.

Last week I sent my Samurai Shodown V special cart off to JMKurtz to have it redumped. But what we found was that the newly dumped roms where exactly the same as what is already in MAME. So it would seem the issue is either with how the roms are decrypted or maybe the emulation of the PCM2 ( my initial thought a few pages back ).

I know you guys are very busy, but was hoping you might be able to investigate the issue further as it would benefit your multi along with community.

You can find more about the problem here: http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?269615-Status-SamSho-V-Special-Redump

Read the news section on their site.

But an educated guess would be early February considering there are no delays from any of the 3 different suppliers, also take in consideration this is assembled and tested before packing and sending, that takes time also, don't get anxious just give it time if it gets there then good if it doesn't just wait getting paranoid won't make it faster or easier.

Next project (lets call it "SD Project 2" ) is already decided cause its something we want for ourselves (same story as NEOSD, we wanted one for ourselves).

For the following projects we have a pile of things on the "we want" list, but there is not such priority as for "SD Project 2", we would just love to have anything on the list built.

So we may open a pool betwen the users that bought NEOSD and let them decide what to build next (after SD Project 2), we would take ANY sugestions on this pool, this is just an idea BTW ...

We always try to give something back to the ones that support us, there are guys waiting for NEOSD since 21th November. To have those guys that supported us happy with the purchase is priority right now.

Once we have shipped all those orders, we will start shipping the shells we promissed to the first batch MVS customers. Then we will have time for distributors and others.

No plans for any NEOGEO hardware related project.

We have already done our best with Neo Geo. NEOSD is the product we wanted for ourselves, we just have plans for NEOSD firmware updates after we deliver the new firmware, there are things we want to add, and other things that may show.

We try to build things we want for ourselves and that can pay the development/production of the product. Next one fits the first criterion and we hope it will fit the seccond one aswel, so we can move to a 3rd project someday.

Thanks

Hi, just wanted to share my feedback, things are smooth and solid, couldn;t ask for a better experience.
Got latest firmware update and will start testing on slot-4 as well, but so far MV-1C and neosd are quite a deadly combo!

So is the latest firmware now available, or did you email neosd to get it? I haven't registered my cart yet so I haven't been checking to see if it's available (minus watching this thread, of course).

I made this post in the wrong thread, I wanted it here, so here it is again.

I think by the middle of next week the NeoBuilder is going to need another update. Finally after years of trying it looks like MAME has finally addeded back a roboarmy set and also the alt Korean version of samsho2. It took a long time but I was finally able to forward information showing they needed to be included.

On top of this I arranged the Korean Kof99 that uses a SMA to be forwarded to Brian who has now done the business to it. Brian has probably already submitted it to MAME so all going well it will be in the next MAME also. I'm not totally sure but I guess this may also require a firmware update to get working on the NeoSD given the custom nature of this cart.

My list of known undumped games is slowly shrinking so here it is again. Please check your original carts. I would espicially like to find the Metal Slug 3 at the top of the list.

I confirm the new kof99 dump works fine on NeoSD, but it will need a firmware update, as Razoola said, because as the previous korean dump was using standard banking, it will try to use the same banking for this new dump, and will cause an unibios error screen, so it needs to be updated to use the custom banking of this new set.

Developers interested on distribute DRM games, those that will only run on a specific NEOSD cart, will have to contact us, so we can provide the requiered info/tools to distribute those protected games. There is more than encryption layer on this NEOSD function.

Thanks !

This is huge and I never thought it was a possibility. ROMs could be sold/licensed to an individual and run only one registered NEOSD cart. That is awesome. I hope NGDEV Team is watching. This could be another sales channel for them.
And why not think big. Maybe SNK would be willing to sell the Neo library on the NEOSD. All the ROMs are already out in the wild. What does SNK have to lose? But I doubt SNK is looking. For something like this I think NEOSD would have to reach out to them.

I would definitely get them digitally if that becomes a possibility, and day one downloads for future releases would be a plus.

That could give people an easier option for those new releases without the cartridge cost, cutting that expense could make them more affordable and less work for them, also no returns or warranty and updates that can't be done on physical form.

Even getting a demo download with your preorder can bank money fast for them.

I assume the rom encryption can work with the serial to engineer a unique key to decrypt making it useless to anyone else if you want to "share" it.

Count me in if that happens!

I don't think that will happen. They create their games with the purpose of being exclusive and expensive or something like that. Asking for ROM downloads is like asking Rolls Royce to make a compact car. They can, it would bring more revenue, but it's not what they are about.

I would think the same thing if they hadn't done Dreamcast releases in the past. I still think it's unlikely, but I wouldn't rule it out altogether.

AFAIK, DC ports were kind of an after-thought, not really the main focus, but they needed time, therefore they axed them.

GadgetUK
01-23-2017, 11:21 AM
I don't think they will go for SD download versions for a number of reasons:-
They will make more profit from the cart version (per sale) than they would from an SD version - unless the SD versions were sold at the amount they make in profit from a cart version. That means maybe £100 or more per game probably - does anyone really want to pay £100+ for a downloadable game? If they reduce the price to say £50, then isn't that kind of like f****** over the previous buyers of cart versions? Then theres the re-print games coming out this year, what do they do about the pre-orders of those, do you get an option to get cash back and have the download version instead, or would they give refunds and then open up download sales? I just don't see it happening unfortunately. Unless they just screw over the people that previously paid lots for the original carts.

What I do see as a possibility is new games coming in downloadable SD versions - that makes perfect sense no matter how you look at it, but the NGDEV team have already said they are moving onto a new platform after Kraut Busters =/

Hello,

An small update about shipment/production :

I just have arrived from shells/mold factory, they were working on the modifications we asked them.

Today I saw that they have almost finished with the mold works. I saw some of the changes we asked them for already done, and others being worked inside the processing machines.

So as today the planning is :

MVS PCBS: in stock since last week, we will start serializing those tomorrow.
AES PCBS : Factory will give us those next Thursday (in 3 days from today we wil have stock)

Shells :
- Next friday Factory will finish the work on the mold (January 27th)
- Next monday we will have the preseries (january 30th), we will give the OK and the mold will pass to polish stage
- We will get the series following Thursday (February 2th)

The day we will get the shells, we will have all PCBS from AES and MVS ready to ship, so we expect to start shipping about Friday 3th

If the factories dont give us another delay, we will work this weekend (Saturday 4th – Sunday 5th), so we hope to have everything delivered on Monday 6th –Tuesday 7th.

All this counting on nothing shows. I personally think this time we should not have more delays, maybe 1 or 2 days, but not more.
I have been with the owner of the plastics factory and he promised me to accomplish with the delivery dates


Next thursday/friday i will give you guys another update, as soon as we got more info.

looking good - both the update on the manufacture process as well as the labels!
Only one thing about the label: the small part of the tank that goes over the stripes in the bottom left looks a little strange to me... it's too tiny and should better go behind the stripe in my opinion.

You right, I wonder what happened there, it was not like that in the last version. Its like its been shifted left for some reason. It looked better before with equal gap between wheel and gold bar and other wheel and edge (like in this pic http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?268514-MVS-amp-AES-NEOSD-flash-card-AES-Version-ANNOUNCED-amp-AVAILABLE!!&p=4156381&viewfull=1#post4156381).

I can see why now, the bars were moved inwards but the tank and large logo not moved right to account for it.

All sounding good, neosd. Just a quick question. Will the MVS shells for the preorders be a priority, or will they be sent on a later date? I just don't like using mine much at the moment without a shell, and don't have a spare MVS shell to convert.

Hello,

We are going to get shells for already shipped orders and for new orders at the same time.

BUT, we will ship new orders before we ship shells for the already shipped orders.

I hope you understand that, but you guys have been able to play it for some time now and some guys have been waiting for months for his shipment.

Anyways, 2 or 3 days after we have shipped all orders we will start shipping the promissed shells.

Priority now is to get new orders out ASAP, even the postman calls asking when are we going to ship, so you can imagine how many emails per day we are getting asking us when are we going to ship.

We are just doing our best, we have spent the entire day today testing the MVS batch, all good so far :)

Hello,

Small update as today (we got news :) )

Mounting factory just called 5 minutes ago, AES pcbs are built :)

So, as today this is the status :

MVS PCBS : We started validating those 2 days ago. Validation has two stages, on the first one we program and serialize every board, on the seccond stage we flash kof2003 on each board to be sure everything works fine and there are no glitches.
Stage 1 was finished yesterday, stage 2 (kof2003 test) is being worked now, we are about 30% right now

AES PCBS : mounted, we will pick those tomorrow OR monday, but factory called and work is finished, they just called to ask if they would ship those to us or we would go there to pick them, prolly we will go there tomorrow instead of get the boards shipped.

Shells : We called factory now, they are finishing the mold work, they say they will finish it today and tomorrow we will have injection tests.

So whats remaining is :
Print the stickers (we will go to a company to make the order today)
Serialize and test AES pcbs
Prepare shipping labels
Ship

Count that we will need 3 days to serialize and test AES pcbs atleast, but as shells should be ready next week we will work on that task while we are waiting for the shells.

More info as soon as we got news

Thanks

Thanks for your hard work and dedication.

Wish you lots of success!

One question, did you ever set it up with the so bank so that a NeoSD could be purchased with a Discover card?

Hello,

We asked our bank and told us that we had to talk with Discover and AME directly, they gave us the contact of AME but never gave us the contact for Discover.

We called AME and it was like 4% fee on every transaction (you have to sum that to the % our bank already takes for each transaction), AME would use the same system we alraedy have (Redsys Credit Card Gateway), we just had to pay them this extra % for enable theyr cards there.

So we just put that decision on hold. Honestly we have been pretty busy for the last weeks/months to even consider it again, but we should, once we have shipped all pending orders.

Here's the thing MrCoontflapps...

Neosd and his team have chosen to be here... The fact is... that this is the natural place to promote, sell and offer tech advice for the current Neosd product....

It is a NG flashcart... It is advertised on other forums but in the main the Neosd Team are using this site to seed and sell their product...

Our forum base is diverse and members of other gaming sites and hence, it allows the Neosd team to be advertsied free of charge on other sites when our memberbase posts links or mentions it...

As for me being a Cunt... that pretty much can be true as well...

However, you will find that very few people could've modded this thread with as little drama as possible... it's a tough place to come and start selling a product when no one knows who you are...

The Neosd team have done well in that respect... and I appreciate the efforts they have made in that regard...

We are pretty near to sold out AES, we will not know how many we have left until we finish to validate this current batch (it will be in 3 days)
At this moment the answer deppends on how many (if any) fails our quality control.

Anyways the next batch is already ordered and we already got the pcbs in stock cause we ordered pcbs for this AES batch and for the next one, so next batch should arrive pretty soon aswel (i mean, we have unsoldered pcbs in stock for the next batch so only factory solder work is needed) pcbs for the current batch were built on 02-01-2017 and mounted NEOSD AES arrived today, so you can have an idea about how much it will take with those numbers ...

I'm not really sure most visitors did realize that... Not even most of those who heardt about the Neo-Geo time ago...

I agree. The consolized Omega, the new yorker article, the flash cartridge, the neo geo games being released on the Nintendo switch. It all has a small, but measurable affect on neo geo prices. If I get the Flash Cartridge & find out I really enjoy a specific game on it, you can be damn sure I'm going to track down a physical MVS cart eventually.

I forget who said this but on another message board someone had come up with stats showing that when a game gets released on virtual console or psn digitally, the original copies go up in price, they tend to stabilize after a while and sometimes go back down. In my experience following price changes on auctions I believe this to be generally true. Also when sequels to games are announced something similar happens to the previous games. The effect of this is sometimes earth shattering like with Shenmue, when Shenmue III was announced prices doubled and at some moments tripled for the previous two games.

Thats an interesting take, because in my experience its been the opposite. If a solely limited console release game is desirable, and then gets released digitally, the prices plummet, as most people aren't collectors but rather gamers who just want to play the game, a la, FF7. That game was well over $100 everywhere and anywhere I saw in person for years until they decided to rerelease it on PSN a few years ago. Now its $30 whenever I see it.

I agree. The consolized Omega, the new yorker article, the flash cartridge, the neo geo games being released on the Nintendo switch. It all has a small, but measurable affect on neo geo prices. If I get the Flash Cartridge & find out I really enjoy a specific game on it, you can be damn sure I'm going to track down a physical MVS cart eventually.

Yup. If you want the real deal you are eventually gonna get it. Nostalgia plays a big part of it and I personally love it. Picking up a cart from the shelf and putting it in the system and at the same time you are thinking "man I used to play these big boyz at the arcade as a youngster and now I finally have a fine collection of all my favourite carts here at home!" It's a dream come true and a flash cart just can't reproduce it for me. They might play the same but the experience is different for some of us.
Btw. flash cart doesn't have the signature moldy odor of a mvs cartxD

Neosd has been testing every single AES board... he indicates he's sick of watching KoF 03 load...

I must commend him for his attention to detail... he posted this in chat... (I am pretty sure he's not gonna kick my ass for posting it here...)

This type of attitude is precisely why flash carts cause price spikes. Makes no fucking sense to me but whatever floats your boat.

Precisely the charm of this cart is there are no hacks no shortcuts taken to make it work, the process runs like an original cart, so if you can play every single game ever released without the cleaning and storing cause preserving big collections is easier said than done, maybe after getting mine I'll see how attached I am still to my carts, I don't know yet but we'll see, my other collections have been sold before, so this might be it for the neo I don't know.

Recently I got some EverDrives and I am happy I don't have to keep cleaning and adjusting things just one cart and play, I got the idea in my head after watching some YouTube videos from a forum member here and really I don't need a whole room to store my games like before.

I want a fake insert and sticker that says "bigtimer in 1" now

I ordered the AES version and, for me personally, this won't affect which carts I do and don't purchase in any way. I bought it mainly for the home brew options (having dabbled in it myself) but also to play those carts I haven't been able to afford yet, and the ones I know I will never be able to afford. I guess if I had to choose which camp I fall into, it would be fair to say more collector than gamer, and in reality I actually do more home brew development than gaming.

IMHO, I can't really see the NeoSD having much effect at all on cartridge prices. For collectors, it's irrelevant. Ditto for gamers who must have the original cart, for whatever reason. You could argue that the number of (the remaining) gamers in the market for original carts will decrease with the availability of the NeoSD, but I find myself wondering how significant that percentage is anyway? With so many options to actually play Neo Geo titles on alternate hardware, those apathetic enough not to care about original carts and original hardware are probably getting their fix mostly elsewhere anyway. I do think this trait is somewhat unique to the Neo Geo though; you're either nuts about it or don't really have much interest.

But that's just my opinion of course and happy for others to disagree.

Been lurking for awhile on these forums and finally placed an order for one of these yesterday - been watching this thread since the first day. I was debating waiting to compare with the other cart that will inevitably come, but I decided I wanted to support Neosd and team for coming out of left field with something incredible and keeping the communication channel open (also, who doesn't love the underdog?). More healthy competition only helps us in the end anyways.

I can't wait. And also really excited to see what future stuff you guys come up with.

Also placed an order at the end of last week, very much looking forward to a decent multicart solution. Narrowed my MVS and AES lots down to under ten carts for each, only holding on to games I could not part with one of those being my Fatal Fury Special cart aka 'old faithful'

Hello

We just have updated our news section with an small update about the shipments.


http://www.neosdstore.com/news/index.php/2017/02/06/06-02-2017-neosd-shipment-status/

Resuming : we have finished to test/serialize both MVS and AES and we are waiting for the shells, last tuesday we were at shells factory and we requested some small adjustments.
We have called to the factory today and they have finished those adjustments, we will go to the factory tomorrow and if everything is ok we will start producing the shells.


Also, thanks to everyone that supported us

Sometimes neodev sings me neogeo tunes on skype, he has heard much more neogeo tunes than myself :) He has pretty good skills for singing those tunes, i kinda love it when that happens :)

I have listened kof2k3 intro hundreds of times, even that i still havent reached the hate point but i think this will eventually come.

I agree on playing the real deal. But as the years passed, I lost interest in collecting, the hassle, the prices, the cleaning, etc. In the end it all comes down to enjoying the exact same experience on a real console.

Funny, I went from gamer to collector, and from collector to gamer again. Only took 15 years for the cycle to be complete again.

Love the pics. Reminds me of my summer factory work back in college.

Random question. Are the AES cases going to be snapped together or use screws. From the pics it looks like it'll probably use screws.

Also since you'll own the mold you know you're going to have to make limited runs in different colors (Red, gold, blue, clear, transparent grey... and of course glow-in-the-dark) :loco::loco::loco:

The NeoSD is such a beauty. THe way I look at it, for Samurai Shodown V Special alone it's worth buying. When I have enough money I'll be buying one. I hope you keep producing these for a long time. :)



Thats an interesting take, because in my experience its been the opposite. If a solely limited console release game is desirable, and then gets released digitally, the prices plummet, as most people aren't collectors but rather gamers who just want to play the game, a la, FF7. That game was well over $100 everywhere and anywhere I saw in person for years until they decided to rerelease it on PSN a few years ago. Now its $30 whenever I see it.

Yes I think that happens too. My impression is that when a game goes digital the demand for the originals come down, but the demand that remains becomes more wanting of it. For a more mainstream title like FFVII, which was back in the day one of the best selling titles on PS1, you will see prices come down. However for games that are uncommon or rare I've often seen the available copies sell away resulting in price increases. It's an awkward phenomena.

Hello,

Shell uses screws.

This first batch is going to be solid black on ABS plastic.

We have asked for other colors and its definelly possible, but it has an extra cost cause you have to pay the color. I donï½´t really remember now if they buy the plastic with the color or they buy the color and mix it with the plastic, i got so many things on my mind to remember it :)

On the PCBS for example you can make those at any color but you have to pay the entire box of paint and use it in a single run cause the color dies after some hours. That makes it really expensive for small batches.

Once we have the first shells batch done, we will ask about other colors, i myself like smoke transparent black color. But this is not going to be soon, cause we have put so many preasure on the factory to start producing next tuesday and we will let them breathe for some time before we send them another order.

Thanks

Yes, i love this color. Our plan was to choose this one for the production but this may dissapoint some users so we decided to do it on the same color as original AES cart. Think that not everyone may like the contrast betwen two different colors once the cart is plugged on the AES.


We will see if its possible to offer extra shells with different colors in the future, but it allways depends on pricing.
You are forced to produce a minimun order cause to put the mold into the machine and heat it has a cost, plus fill it with a color. Then you have the price of a color that its not regular ....
So once we have put ourselves up to date, we will see if its possible on costs side.

Shells are designed for neosd pcbs, not for regular (larger) pcbs, so the answer is no :(
You canï½´t use those shells for regular mvs or aes pcbs, only for neosd pcbs

Funny, I went from gamer to collector, and from collector to gamer again. Only took 15 years for the cycle to be complete again.
I went from gamer, to collector of a few systems, to collector of almost every major system. In recent years I've bought very little, and even looking to downsize, or at least, concentrate on a few select systems and only buy for them (Neo Geo being one of them of course!) Since most of my collection has been packed away for the last decade, and I'm only now in a position to set up my games room, I'm hoping to be able to enjoy my games a lot more - by actually playing them! And also introducing them to my kids as they get old enough to play them!

So you could say I went from gamer, to collector, back to gamer again as well - though it's taken me closer to 30 years! ;)

Also, as allways we wont anounce anything until we have it running, so its time for a video :

Jukebox UI is still work in progress, function is finished but UI needs to be improved.

Just to clarify that, we have two teams in Terraonion, one keeps working on NEOSD while the other team is working into a new device.

There are more features already done on NEOSD, we plan to release a new firmware with those aditions some weeks after AES shipment. Next week shipments will have the previous firmware (the same everyone can download from our website for MVS)

So yes, we think we are going to start shipping next week, fingers crossed ...

That jukebox feature is a really great addition. One day I dream of using CD quality Audio from the Neo GEO CD games on an MVS through a flash card, but that's probably going to stay a dream forever. SD2SNES spoiled me by introducing me to redbook audio on a cartridge based system.

I think the redbook audio feature is not possible on MVS because, unlike SNES, the MVS connector doesn't have access to the analog audio path to inject its own sampled audio, so the only way to do that would be using digital streams (eating some of the YM2610 streams), and it wouldn't have redbook audio quality, as the YM2610 can only play ADPCM compressed samples, with a low sample rate.
