    Clear Neo Geo CD System & Debug Donation Thread

    I hope by posting these pics and information, this will bring some awareness and donations to Mr. smkdan and his work on the Neo Geo CD debug bios. In the future it may also help us make use of the extra ram slots that are available on the CDZ (we're not close to that yet, but you have to start somewhere). In a very short time smkdan has made a lot of progress and it is currently working on my CDZ. Paypal donations to snkdan@hotmail.com, I'm sure he'd appreciate any donation amount, and he is in no way asking me to do this.

    Enough with the PSA, here are the Clear Neo CD pics. I havent posted them on the 'fancub' but will soon. I bought this from NeoBomberman about 3 years ago and it was found on a yahoo.jp auction as some of you may remember. It is 100% legit, not some knockoff case. The motherboard is a completely different design than the final top loader and during boot the BIOS revision number is displayed at the bottom of the screen. I'll get a pic of that posted soon. These pics are from 2007 when I first got it, I cannot take the case apart again as the plastic screw holes wont take another screw/unscrewing as they are pretty brittle.

    Awesome, never seen it before.

    And off to the other thread... I'm definitely going to support the NGCD debug bios project.

    Great to hear that some people are still interested in the ol' machine!
    Check out my new tracks:

    So it's not a commercial version of the NGCD. Is it a developer's tool?

    Man, that is so cool. I wish I could see it in real life!

    I love that design of that model of the Neo Geo CD so much.

    So, you're the one who outbid me....

    So, have we determined what exactly the clear Neo CD is? I mean, is it like a test unit or what?

    Nope, but I bought it from the person who did.

    Its definitely a prototype, completely different motherboard layout and a early bios. The other system that was in that auction was early as well, different layout, and writing on different parts of the board.
