Neo-News magazine is finally here. Big Bruno and Jeff Kurtz have received their issues already (I would also like to thank Shawn for purchasing an issue also; thanks Shawn, it's on the way!).
Bilkwando, and co. (my staff members) will be getting their copies after we finish sending
issues to our subscribers to square everything away. Interested in our publication?

Neo-News Magazine is a bi-monthly full color journal which covers everything Neo Geo.
Our url is http://neonews.cjb.net (Internet Explorer is strongly recommended to surf our
site).

Our site was down for repairs but it is fully functional now.

This message also pertains to Jeff Kurtz and Big Bruno: did you enjoy the premier issue?
Send me an e-mail, guys!

I'll be looking forward to your post, Bruno! It has been a long time in coming, and I apologize to everyone for the delays.

This is excellent! I am delighted to see a real publication being offered for this neo geo; up to this point the only other outfit I had heard of doing something like this was NGF, and I sure as heck wont be buying any of their rags anytime in the near future. I saw where I could suscribe on the website- I will sign up in the next week or so. Question- could one of you guys save one of those premier issues for me? If it cant be included in the one year subscription fee I will send you, I am willing to cover the cost of it separately. Anyway, something like this has my full support, and as I love to read magazines anyway, I am really looking forward to singing up. Thanks for offering the community something like thia!

Bruno, your copy of Neo News magazine was mailed on 10/19/00 and Jeff's was mailed on 10/18/00; both issues were shipped Priority mail and I assumed you had yours by now. In any case, I will be looking forward to your comments and suggestions! This goes for everyone here at Neo-Geo.com!

This actually sounds interesting...
Maybe what you should do is scan the cover ofyour first issue and post it somewhere so we can see what's in the first issue. It could be something that I may want to get myself.

(Blushes) Thanks. =) I love the Neo, and Neo News is my labor of love. I used to
published a small rag called New World Enthusiast which did extremely well. I had plenty
of contacts at SNK of America, and I still have contacts with SNK of Japan employees.

The first issues is 10 pages. The second issue will be much larger, and will contain more info. =) Our info comes directly from
SNK itself. We still have contacts with former SNK employees as well! =)

It is also very good to see that you have actual contacts with SNK, and not this fabricated crap NGF likes to throw our way after the fact. Another reason I will be subscribing to you mag for a long time to come.

Well we've been conversing with SNK for years. We get unfiltered information from the source because they trust me.

Thank you for the support, man. We will not disappoint you!

I tried to subscribe electronically but it doesn't work. The secure order form gives an error, and the $$ amount for the Paypal transaction are incorrect. It prepopulates an extra $10 to the order. What's going on? Thanks!

Does this illegal operation occur in your Windows environment (i.e. your browser crashes) or does a message appear in your browser stating there is an error? I'll try uploading the subscription page again. =)

Hmmmm... IE would probably work. I use Netscape myself, but sometimes IE can be more stable at times.

Hmmmm... maybe if by sending a direct link to the sub page, it might work. Here, try this:

D'oh! If you use PayPal, you can send a payment directly to Neo-Media Publications. The e-mail address we use for PayPal is totallyamiga@yahoo.com and my name is Michael Pittaro.

I really apologize for this, Todd. http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/frown.gif

Yeah thanks,

I actually recieved it on Monday. Sorry my company has seen fit to send me to a windows 2000 cram session (active directory, server, professional etc..) so I have been attending class this week and studing when I get home at night.I would have prefered if they just gave me the money for the class and I will stay at home and study for a week, a little over $5,000 for a week sheesh. I have looked over the magazine and it looks good. I realize that due to unforseen circumstances it had to be reduced to more of a fanzine but it is a good start. I have not had to much time to read through it yet though maybe this weekend once class is over.

You need to add a code section though. it would be nice to see some neo codes in a gaming mag again http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/wink.gif feel free to take any of my ancient codes from my old web site if you like. HTI has seen fit to leave the old site up and not take it down. to tell the truth I think they forgot about it. If they were not so damn expensive for web service I might still be using them. Almost 50,000 hits and it has not been updated in over 2 years...go figure. Anyway the url is http://www.hti.net/~bigbruno/neomain.htm
feel free to take anything you like from the code section. I think I have about 5 or 6 games on there. I personaly like the arrow formet though. Gaming FAQ's are to hard to read most of the time, something in print with graphic looks a lot better. I Have lots more to just never put them up. LMK. But good work on the magazine I am looking forward to the next issue, and if you need any pictures of anything LMK also. Anything I can do to help out. I would help with a article but as you can tell I am not much of a typist http://www.neo-geo.com/ubb/smile.gif

Response to Big Bruno's letter:

The circumstances were, in a word, horrible. Yeah, true. The layout is professional quality (so I've been told =) ) and the writing is top quality as well; the means to produce the magazine does give it that Fanzine flair, however. The means used to produce Neo News doesn't distract from the publication, though,
because the presentation is still professional in nature. =)

We're looking for fresh content, Bruno. Never underestimate yourself! What kind of ideas
(i.e. articles) would you like to submit to Neo News? I'm always open to creative genius!
I appreciate the offer to use those codes on your site; we'll work on including a code and
tips section!
