For what it's worth, I'm interested in an AES version of the Pro. Any color, as long it's solid black.

I'm going MVS all the way, color isn't too important for me.

Agreed however patience is key. The NeoSD should cover the needs of most, the pro variant is just a quicker version for those games in RAM. Personally I couldn't give a shit.

We are waiting for the last quotations for the remaining chips needed to produce the batch.

We should place the order before this week ends, delivery date for those parts should mark the PRO launch date.

In the meanwhile, i asume you guys will like this picture

Sorry if this has been asked before, but I still can't wrap my mind around it. It's about the options menu for the NeoSD pro for MVS, where you can select the game region, the AES/MVS mode and so on: do you still need to install an Unibios on your board to use that feature?

EDIT: found the info on the regular NeoSD thread: -Switch cartridge region without needing special bios. -MVS board AES emulation without needing special bios.
Well, this makes me want a NeoSD even more...

We keep saying it will be available when it’s available. If Alex had a concrete date, don’t you think he would share it?

Asking over and over isn’t going to change the fact that part sourcing and manufacturing takes time. Follow the TerraOnion twitter account, or just keep an eye on the forum for the availability announcement. It will happen. Just have some patience.

If giving them money makes you sick, don't do it. Your health is worth more than a flash cart for a dead system. Nobody is forcing you to give anyone money. You don't need a neo sd cart to live. It's not a requirement for life. You sound pathetic.

Hello,

I think we gave a lot of information about when NEOSD PRO is going to be ready and its easy to get an idea about the status of the product. But i will try to explain it again :

We try to avoid presales as much as possible.
You came here pissed about us not opening sales and taking your money, now imagine we opened the sales back in june, took your money and you still donīt have your payed NEOSD PRO.
After Super SD System 3, we came to some conclusions :

- We canīt handle more than one product release at the same time.
- We canīt be answering people about when are we going to ship, just cause we donīt know, cause it depends on a huge list of providers. For neosd pro this is : pcb factory (to produce pcbs), smt factory (to solder chips on pcbs), 6 different chip providers and more than 30 different chips manufacturers, plus shells factory.

So when we anounced neosd pro we said : pcbs are ready, product (hardware side) is fnished and software is almost done. We will start working on production once we are up to date with super sd system 3 and so we did.

This is actually what happened, in May we started to source chips, and you know what ? We have everything in stock here except the SRAMS that will arrive next week. Why we dindnīt bought the srams before ? cause the delivery times for those chips was 18 weeks, so we placed an order and just wait. We got confirmation from the supplier that the packet was already shipped and will be here next week BTW.

So whats remaining as today ? Srams to arrive, shells to arrive. PCB factory to send pcbs to SMT factory and SMT factory to give us a soldering slot and solder the pcbs
When are we going to start selling ? We donīt know but everything is shorted and it should be be soon.

About your sugestion of the Chineses stealing/cloning our work : i could tell you some reasons why regular neosd hasnīt been cloned and why everdrives have been.
One is the investment required to do such thing, that could lead this conversation to the investment that was required to develop NEOSD PRO and if the risk/investment is worth, if this is a good business at all.

Somedays i came to the conclusion that we are the only fools that are not taking money from theyr customers with a 3d render and a pile of promises much before to have a working product to sell. Maybe we are wrong and we should change the way we finance our projects, just take money in advance, develop the product with calmn and zero risk about a competor releasing a product before yours and you lossing your time and money invested there. This would allow us for sure to show everyday what we are working at and work with less preasure

Anyways, glad to see that people are excited about NEOSD PRO. No one is going to be dissapointed with the final result, believe me.

Apologies if it has been asked/answered already but I couldn't find details.
Is there any chance that the extra slots will be available to be cycled through the normal multi-slot (MV2-4-6) cabinet select buttons? I mean, would that be possible to have a seamless "slo-7" i.e. using a slot-4 plus Neosd-pro, instead of having to pop up the menu an select the pro virtual slots?

Thanks!

How would all this integrate with the marquee lights?

I mean if a NeoSD Pro was in slot one and three regular games were in the others, would the first marquee stay lit while cycling through the first four virtual slots and then move on to marquees two, three and four as you get to the other slots?

Interesting question...I guess from a "UI" prospective, the marquee for the NeoSD slot should be a generic one, and the LED should be on, on that one, for each game it has...maybe adding a quick off-on each time you hit the button, until moving normally to the next slot? Anyway, is the logic about managing the LEDs in the BIOS or the board connected to the button?

Anyway, is the logic about managing the LEDs in the BIOS or the board connected to the button?

These were the questions I had when I saw the first NeoSD come out. I don't usually play my MVS using a SuperGun because I love the realism of playing it on a full cabinet. As such, I try to keep everything working as close to original as possible. With the virtual slots, I thought that it would be cool if these slots could match up to the currently lit marquee light in a 4-clot cabinet. In that setup, you could use a NeoSD with 4 virtual slots and basically have the one real slot acting like a real 4-slot arcade without ever having to open up the control panel to swap cartridges. You can set them virtually, change out the marquees and no one would be the wiser.

But the question you posed is one that I don't know the answer to...where do the marquee lights get their information from? I assume it's physical in nature which would make sense seeing as how all SNK would have had to do originally is make the marquees light up based on which slot is currently "on." I doubt the NeoSD would have the capability to change this considering it only uses one physical slot. :( I'd guess if it were to work, there would have to be some sort of external wiring/setup to trick the marquee lights into thinking they were being activated as you switch the games.

Yes, there are 2 topics on this. Let me explain how the NeoSD Pro slot switch works, as I think this has not been properly explained yet.

First the game slot switch. It's in the horizon, but it's not currently finished. There are some challenges on this, related to the backup ram.
The key is that the cart must trick the bios, because when scanning the slots, it will only see 1 slot populated, and thus, only 1 slot will appear in the
soft dips configuration, and the bios won't write the game switching register, but there are ways to make it switch games anyways (although you'll need to use
neosd menu to configure softdips).
Right now, to switch games, there are 3 ways:
- Hold A,B,C,D while booting (on MVS) or also holding one and pressing Reset (on AES), this will boot to flash slots 1,2,3,4 respectively.
This is the fastest way, and also works on arcade mode. As RAM slot starts empty, on MVS there is no way to select the RAM slot using this method, because
it's always empty on boot. On AES, as you can reset while running, holding A+B and pressing Reset will switch to the RAM slot (if any game was loaded first).
- Using the NeoSD menu. Just enter the menu as if you were going to flash a new game, then select Launch Last Game, and a list with the 5 slots will appear, select the
one you want to launch and enjoy. This is the slowest way.
- Using the new In-Game Menu. You can now enable an ingame menu (in the new non-pro firmware 1.07 it's available too, for cheats). This menu has an option to change
the slot, just select the new one in the list, and it will reboot to that game. It has a very handy fast-reboot method for known bioses that will make this switch really
fast, skipping the bios test screens or unibios boot screen, for almost-like-multislot-board-switch experience :).

Because the original slot switch is handled internally by the bios, the best way to do this would be adapting the bios to know it has a NeoSD connected, and
scan its slots using the command ports it provides, and populating its internal slot structures as a real multislot, and using the bios slot switch sequence to
properly do that like a real multislot (instead of writting to the slot selection port, telling the NeoSD to switch slot).

This works fine for single slot boards, but for multislots, it's a different matter. Of course, having just a NeoSD in the board will behave properly, like a single slot, but
having more games, starts the trouble, because we have the bios doing its work, not knowing about the NeoSD.
When doing the slot switch methods mentioned above, as the board needs to be reset (so the bios sees the new game, and all its structures and backup ram are in sync), after switching
the NeoSD slot, it's possible that another of the installed carts is selected by the bios to boot, so you'll need to cycle them using the cart selection button
to return to the NeoSD physical slot, and the game you selected will be there.
When the single button slot switch is added to the NeoSD Pro, as it uses the same button the bios uses to switch slots, it will switch the slots itself, so it will switch to another cart.
If you keep switching carts, when you arrive to the NeoSD cart, NeoSD will switch its slot, so, you'll need to cycle through all installed carts to switch the slot.
Say you have Blue's Journey and Spinmaster in NeoSD Pro, and have a Windjammers cart in other cart slot. Pressing the MVS slot switch button would cycle Windjammers, Blue's Journey, Windjammers, Spinmaster...
Also the bios attract will cycle that way. It's unavoidable, because the bios sits in the middle, and we can't touch it.
Also, in the case of multislots with NeoSD and more than 1 cart, it's recommended to have the Continuous backup ram save mode, as there might not be enough backup ram slots to hold all games at once
and some games would reset to default when selected.


About the marquee lights. They are selected by the bios based on the cartridge slot the bios has selected to run, so, if you have NeoSD pro on slot 1 and Windjammers in slot 2, whatever game you have loaded
in NeoSD, it will light the 1st EL panel, regardless of which game is selected. We could try writting to the panel selection port, but the bios could override it (and probably will) anytime.
Anyways, it's planned that the NeoSD will output the currently selected game through its USB port. It's a CDC device, so it will appear as a serial port on most windows and linux systems, so you could
plug it into a RPi or simiar for more advanced marquees selection, like having a LCD screen and show the proper game screenshots...

Hi neodev,

I noticed that most of the problems in a multi slot with FW 1.06 and 1.07 have to do with attract/demo cycling. I'm wondering if a bios mod would fix this or if there are other loading errors happening because of cart size/file errors.

No, that's a different issue. It's caused because the write signals and data still arrive to an unselected cart in the multislot boards, so if you have a game that doesn't use banks in the neosd, and change to one that uses banks, the bankswitching writes will be captured by the neosd, and will incorrectly try to switch banks when there aren't any, so when you return to the neosd game, the banks aren't reset, because the game is not supposed to be able to switch them, and wrong data may be present there.

Hine62
02-12-2019, 07:23 AM
This makes sense because games run fine when only the neosd is inserted. I have a bunch of carts, so I'll try some different slot arrangements with banked and no bank carts.

02-12-2019, 07:25 AM
Did you request a 1.07 beta firmware? we have a fixed firmware that will solve that for you. I have a pending firmware to send to a person who still had issues with its 4-slot, maybe it's you :)

Hine62
02-12-2019, 08:59 AM
That's me. I sent an email last night with a list of games that were split into different sizes. I was trying to see if there was a correlation between cart size and error. It looks like I was correct. Larger roms use p1, p2, etc bank switching... It was interesting that the largest carts didn't have this problem. Maybe large carts only have one p1, bank switch more c1, c2, etc.? I could as be that there are rom errors...

I find it impressive that neogeo could play games that were more involved as the system got older. It was really a one of a kind platform. :)

Thanks for the detailed explanation...this helps a lot! It sounds like using a single slot board is the way to go and with that new USB output, it could be possible to either get individual marquess to light up or just go with a single larger marquee. :)

Just received mine. Very fast shipping by DHL (I usually hate private shipping companies).

Another quality product from TO. :cool:

Loading games to RAM slot is much quicker.

Here some samples (loading time in secs)...

Alpha Mission II 6
Last Resort 6
Robo Army 6
Thrash Rally 6
Spin Master 9
View Point 9
Top Hunter 11
Pulstar 25
Blazing Star 27
Metal Slug X 39

And 4 additional flash slots are available for permanent (bigger) favorites.

I would say, loading time to flash slots is about the same as the non-pro version.

Very happy with the cart. :)

I'm wondering, if the audio jack would work for a 2 player Thrash Rally setup.

PS: "Launch current game" should be renamed by something like "Launch game from slot".

I'm waiting exactly the same. I think I'll be getting an AES one as soon as SAG have them in stock, since for me shipping from the US is way cheaper than from Europe. And SAG also accept Paypal :)

Regarding the cart itself, the screenshots look nice and intuitive to use, same as the original NeoSD, my only suggestion would be this: on the screen where you choose the slot to flash the game, make it also clearer which line is the slot name and which the game name, just like you did on the "In-game slot change".

It's alive, mine arrived with 1.07_R07, updated to 1.07_R08 (not sure what's different).
I just know it works and loading to RAM is super sweet ... didn't have time to test the NeoGeo CD support which is a hell of a feature (for now just added the XXXcd.neo to the mix and they appeared on the UI but hadn't had time to throw in the actual CD files, it seems it supports 25 of them via what I think are tiny little launchers most of them clock at 5KB ... lol) .

Time to sell My NeoSD, my NGCD toploader and my CDZ .... not sure I'm sad or happy about it .... it's all space I can recoup so there's that, once I make up my god damn mind that is.

And the "Winners don't use drugs" AES support is still there (just in case someone asked) as well as CTHD running on AES .... simply sublime.

It's a tad buggy, but they are on top of it. In a strange way, it kind of makes the CD version of Metal Slug better than the cart version now.

The CD games load in just a couple seconds, versus having to take minutes to write to flash (or half a minute or so to write to RAM). Then the loading screens within the game are all super fast.

So now you can get Metal Slug that loads wicked fast, and has the combat school to boot.

I tried Metal Slug CD with the latest batch of neo files (the 50 cd launchers/memmaps download recently released) and my experience has been that it takes 5 or 6 seconds to get to the game selection screen (after NeoSD Pro preparatory flashing/preloading which is about 3 to 5 secs as well, landing in a NGCD screen with the monkey not juggling) and then between game levels loading is about 2 to 4 seconds ... and I agree it makes playing NGCD games a lot less painful (looking forward to KingOfLoading97+).
During my play I experienced drop/rise in CDDA volume (at least that's what I think it was), nothing major [maybe I should keep my CDZ around for the time being :) ].
I was playing at super low volume so I can't tell about the actual audio quality vs real CDDA, it sounded fine to me (I guess the mono vs stereo doesn't bug me at all).

Once more terrific work by Razoola, a very unexpected bonus, I bought the Pro on a whim and I think I like it. This unexpected gift puts the product on a class of its own.

Random question about NeoSD Pro.

I was playing AeroFighters3 (SonicWing3) on AES NeoSD Pro and it seems the difficulty is cranked way too high (I was playing in AES mode at "easy" settings).
I have Unibios 4, no mem card, default Unibios region settings (that is EUR+AES).
If I play AF3 with banancart the difficulty level is much lower (via pick'n'mix) of Uni4, and "easy" means "easy".

Basically the enemies take more hits and shot more ... I can barely finish the first level, on bananacart I reached level 3 easily.
I tried changing soft dip switches with Uni4 to no avail (difficulty to 1).
Is there anything I can do on the NeoSD Pro side? Is it overriding the Uni4 behavior by any chance? Or maybe a bad cfg file somewhere?

Last time I noticed this kind of behavior was bananacart pre Uni4 pick'n'mix on a different game, in that case it was captain tomaday but the point was the same, "easy" was way way too hard, can't remember about AF3 way back then.

Gamemaster
11-16-2019, 05:20 AM
If you check the Twitter posts of em, they seem very busy with the MegaSD, developing Firmware and other stuff.
Todd cant give excact time on Super SD System 3, keeps telling 2-3 weeks or 1-2 weeks but they in production since early october.
Dont know if that takes 6 or more weeks to produce a few hundret units.
With that in mind i dont think there is actually much money left to produce NeoSD or Pro units.

As NeoSD owners are left behind waiting for firmwareupdate 1.07 to have at least some cheat options and in game menu, its is actually disapoining.
The beta phase did start in January but the final release is still not out.

With the move to Andorra and the drama with that, they also drove quite some european customers away and still have issues with shipping.

So my guess is, TO sits still on quite some MegaSDs they need to sell to earn money to produce or pay other products.
When they have the SD Super System 3 in production i dont think they have a lot money left for other stuff.
Even if they have the two Pro versions and the SSDS3 in production, i would quess quantitys are not that high.

I actually dont think they got a credit to produce more products. When you look at the time it takes to produce new stock, this wont be a wise decition for TO too.
They also have costs every months to pay, the longer it takes the worse it gets.

I dont know about the financeal standing of TO, but they are a small company.

My guess they will have some small stock of NeoSD Pro and SSDS3 in 1-3 weeks.

Anyway good luck to em.

Not to be rude, but maybe you should do more support of your already existing devices.
New firmware for the NeoSD is still not out after almost one year the beta testing did end. The in Game Button on the Super SD System 3 is still buggy with some games, I was told there was no firmwareupdate for over a year.

It looks like you have a lot demanding customers but no products to deliver. The move to Andorra was from a EU customers sight bad, actually i would not order again with this many problems.
The SSDS3 for example has no CE sign on pakage or device. Customs could just block or even worse destroy the device because of that.
DHL Express is very expensive when doin customs, they add extra fees to the tax you need to pay.

Anyway up to you what you do and dish more stuff out. I only see a lot dissapointed ppl that are waiting for updates in different forums.

12-28-2019, 10:50 PM
Nope, actually i dont use it anymore, because i got a Pro too. Just sayin cheat support and some fixes to small known issues would be great for NeoSD owners (since the beta firmware contains that).
I know a lot ppl wait for it (even on their forum there are 3 threads with ppl that ask for it).
NeoSD Pro MVS still not out yet.

There is a new firmware out for the latest product (MegaSD) again. Great if that is that buggy, but the older producs need some care too. I dont beleave thease are already end of life for support, but at the moment with like one year no updates it seems so.
Sure TO is still small with only a few ppl, but again maybe its better to stick with the products they have now and give more support and when everything is good release the next thing.
I also know some ppl that have issues with the NeoSD Pro (graphical glitches) dont know whats up with that. PSU, dirty slots or something else?
I got no problems.
Maybe some different case for the SSDS3 for Turbografx Pal & 16 would be good also. Sure you can use the actual one but even the alingnment of the pin slots is not fitting corectly even when u remove the screws.
For example i had the remove the whole case to have the PCB fit on the PAL Turgografx and put it back on after without having 2 screws back in near the pins.
I know its not offical supported but it works, so why not ?
Just a few exsamples for improvement.

Nope, actually i dont use it anymore, because i got a Pro too. Just sayin cheat support and some fixes to small known issues would be great for NeoSD owners (since the beta firmware contains that).
I know a lot ppl wait for it (even on their forum there are 3 threads with ppl that ask for it).
NeoSD Pro MVS still not out yet.

There is a new firmware out for the latest product (MegaSD) again. Great if that is that buggy, but the older producs need some care too. I dont beleave thease are already end of life for support, but at the moment with like one year no updates it seems so.
Sure TO is still small with only a few ppl, but again maybe its better to stick with the products they have now and give more support and when everything is good release the next thing.

I agree, I've had my share of issues with the NeoSd. Luckily for me I have multiple consoles, some modded and others stock, some 5v and non 5v so if the NeoSd doesn't work correctly or work at all on one console I could try another. Scaling Issues on some consoles, Flashing Pixels on others. I just got a NeoSd pro and it doesn't work on my stock 5v Neo Consoles. I'm thinking it's power related so I'm waiting for Retrogame cave to release the new PSU. I also have another NeoSd that is currently not working at all (just getting a white screen when powered on) and waiting on a firmware from Todd.

I've spent a nice amount of money with Terraonion products (2 NeoSd Aes, 1 NeoSd MVS, 1 NeoSd Pro, 2 SuperSd, 1 MegaSd) and have supported them since day one even during the bullshit with darksoft. With that said, the customer service has been horrible. I've been going back and forth with Todd since Dec 9. All I wanted was to downgrade my firmware to fix a flashing pixel issue. I was sent a bogus firmware which now fucked up my $500 flash cart. I get 6 word response from Todd once a week. It's not Todd's fault but he's just a middle man. Alex decides when he's ready to handle customer service issues. Why should it take so long to send a file? TO has left a bad taste in my mouth.

Terraonion products are great but fuck me if you ever have an issue with one of them. Again, I agree with you GameMaster. TO should focus on the current product line up and customer support issues before they push out another product.

Gamemaster
12-29-2019, 02:23 AM
Yes support seems horrible, when you know some ppl that have issues and how slow the solution is ( if there is any). I actually know 2 ppl that gave up already on the high priced faulty Pro.
Something i would never do, but yes basicly your screwed if you import things and you know fileing a lawsuit is very complicated.
I think TO is still not aware how a company runs and have to react. I see them more like a hobbyist that makes big projects and sell thouse stuff, but if problems occur they like to stay out of it.
Then again they did replace the 1st SSDS3 batch for free.

TO has nice stuff to offer no doubt, but they act pretty dumb when it comes to customer care.
Thats the real problem they have, they do things that give them a bad repution for no reason and that is really poison for a small company.
They turn customers away and thouse wont come back if they dont change.
I mean look at you your quite unhappy with the support but love the products. I would guess you wont order new stuff from em unless the other products you own have all issues cleaned out.

I'm not ready to call it quits on them yet. As long as they stand by their name and product I will wait. Just have to be patient and hope this issue gets resolved. This is the first time I've dealt directly with them and it hasn't been a good experience. The last time it was James (Xian XI) that handled a firmware issue when I had sent him a console because of a scaling issue with the NeoSd. I know they're a small business with a handful of people handling alot of customers so I'm willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.

Just remember that the NeoSd is requires more power than a regular Neo cart and the Pro is even more power hungry than the regular NeoSd. I remember having to crank up the voltage a bit on my Mvu 4 slot to get the regular NeoSd to work or else you just get a blank color screen. I have Aes consoles that refuse to work with the pro and I think it's power related.

Could be another issue you're having just saying.

RAZO, did you have any luck with getting your issue resolved?

So here is how TO resolved my problem. So Todd sends me a firmware that fucks up my cart. Todd takes a look at my cart and can't fix it so this is the response I get.

So I've been looking into the issue with your NeoSD cart and we believe the issue might be a bad connection to the FPGA or some flash chips as it only happens on the sprite layer.

But since this cart is way out of warranty (it was built in mid 2017), you would need to go back to SAG to see if they can do anything for you.

I'll ship the cart back to you in the next couple days.

todd

So bottom line is I'm pretty much assed out a $500 flash cart. The NeoSd Pro was the last purchase I make from TO.

I've had flash carts from Krizz for much longer and never had any issues. Had a issue with DS's CPS2 Multi and Mitsu took it back and fixed the issue a year after purchase. So just so you know guys that if TO sends out a faulty firmware that fucks up one of your chips, its on you.

Exactly, Sag is just a reseller. They aren't going to refund me the price of the cart. This is on TO to either fix the problem or send me replacement pcbs or pcb, which ever one has the issue. I messaged Todd and told him I'll cover the shipping to Spain both ways. These aren't cheap shit multicarts that stop working and you just scrap.

Only thing I could tell people here that currently have working NeoSd's if it's working fine or has minor graphical glitches with specific consoles don't bother changing firmware. You risk making the cart a paper weight.

My main concern is future support. That Neobuilder tool only converts recognized games. So what happens when new protos are found or homebrew comes out? What happens if they stop updating the Neobuilder? The third party tools available right now are spotty at best.

A flash cart worth its salt needs to be capable of at least attempting to play any new rom thrown at it. Otherwise it's nothing more than a glorified tool for pirating official games.

Seems like it's difficult for third party vendors to build carts correctly. Remember those wood shells from NGDev? The openings for the PCB weren't staggered so they didn't fit properly either, and the shorter than normal PCBs rattle around in the shells more than originals. The NeoSD PCBs are slightly thicker and wider than originals and the PCBs barely move. Finding the right balance is tricky. When you factor in minor production differences between all the board types and revisions it's something of a logistical nightmare.

When they'll decide to stop producing/selling it they might open source it and leave it up to the community.

Last month I was thinking of it again just for the ease of having one cart, but then RAZO had his issues with firmware.

That sealed the deal for me, not gonna bother. It's unfortunate.

Something at this price point shouldn't need to be modified to fit kind of, and shouldn't be bricked with a firmware update with zero recourse.

To me that just sounds like at best the firmware update pushed out the flaw that was there but saying the firmware killed it is not right if it was bad firmware I'm sure Tod could have just re-flashed it. The cart is from 2017 you cant expect a lifetime warranty if it has 12 months its 12 months and it's not like its a week out and I'm pretty sure you updated firmware before so it's not like the cart was like that day one.

My Toyota broke down I had to pay for the tow to the dealer pay for the repair and pay for a ride to the dealer to pick it up.

Yeah that analogy doesn't work unless your Toyota broke down because the dealer forgot to put oil in it the on the last oil change. In that case they would re-imburse you for the tow and fix your car even if it was 10 years old.

I mentioned before that the cart did not have a scaling issue up until the firmware update that was sent. Maybe the cart did have a issue from the factory that I did not know of. How was I suppose to know the firmware would permanently screw up the hardware? And the cart was manufactured 2017 but I didn't purchase it from Stoneagegamer till either beginning or mid 2018. So relax yourself Beavis.

Whatever the case may be Alex said he would allow me to purchase a new cart at very fair price so I'm holding him to that.

That being said outside of this issu with the NeoSd I've been pretty happy with TO's products overall.

Like alot of you, I was about to pull the trigger and buy a NeoSD Pro AES, along with an AES console today. But I think I did the right thing by coming to this board and see everyone's experience on it. I have no confidence on dropping nearly $1k total on this anymore. I'll just stick with the MVS. I may just get the regular NeoSD MVS down the line, but that's sold out everywhere for now. Hopefully there will be a restock, or I can get one on here. Question, would it have a power/loading issue on a CBox MVS-1C to 15P that are sold on AliExpress? Thanks.

Two years since the announcement and we still haven't seen a release of the MVS Pro version.

Anyone heard any more news on that?

From what I'm seeing, it's most likely a 2021 release now. Fuck that, I'm moving on.

So I kept seeing a lot of positive reviews of the Neo SD Pro and I ended up getting one but now I regret it after all your negative feedback. I kind of want to experience the entire library of system without breaking too much of my bank. Is there something you would recommend? No one talks about the Neo CD BC at all either...

I don't understand. The NeoSd pro works fine. Did you try it out yet? I own one and it does the job well. Also plays a good amount of the NeoCd library.

I'm afraid the guy bought it thinking it was some kind of all-in-one console ready to be connected via HDMI to his TV... then he probably realized that he also needs a motherboard (which are still cheap last time I checked) and a supergun and a controller and realized that it was more money then he was ready to spend.

Yea, I'm confused. The NeoSd Pro is only available on AES. Did he buy thinking this was a all in one unit. Maybe thought the roms came preloaded. Don't know.

Will link cable support be added some day? Would love to link the Pro with my real carts and play head to head.

Probably about the same... look at the difference between MVS and AES regular NeoSD for an idea.

On the fence about getting a neosd pro for a cab I built. Is game switching supported on an mvs1fz, like you would on a 4 slot (by pressing a button on the cp)?

with this pandemy the wise thing to do is to stay at home, the worst time to wait for a restock or a new product....
