    I would be interested in seeing the xrgb pics aswell, please share As for the bios, a unibios is definately worth the time/money. USA system is english and without blood. Personally I prefer a unibnios, USA for sports games wihen friends are over and JP when I play fighters or am playing by myself (I speak japanese).

    As promised, XRGB pics:

    Resolution set to 720P, using FrameMeister Mode (aka teh scanlines)

    Neo via Neobitz component:









    Big difference from the DVDO (apart from scanlines) is no more ugly edges and judder. The DVDO was nice and unless you were right in from of the TV, then you could really see some imperfections. Photos don't do it justice.

    SNES:

    Connected via S-video cable (still waiting for Japanese "SCART" cable)

    Hyper fighting baby!





    Notes: looks and scrolls much better than DVDO VP20 via RGB Sync. Looked too "grainy" on the VP20 and didn't scroll as smoothly. The quality will only improve when I upgrade to the new cable.

    Sega Genesis:

    Connected via Japanese SCART (RGB)





    Winner for the least improved category. DVDO had jailbars and scrolling wasn't as smooth, but pretty dam close.

    Those pics with the XRGB mini Framemeister (awesome name) look amazing. Been looking at upscaling my junk, found some youtube stuff about the SGL3000 and cheap upscaler combo might be an option for me as I don't have 300+ at the mo to spend on this.
    I suppose it just boils down to which I'd prefer crisp picture quality or food.

    Definitely a nice alternative for using LCD retro-gaming for sure. I don't have a limit of space in my house so I will always have a place for 4:3 ratio CRTs. Now I have a Toshiba HD CRT 36", Sony FD Trinitron HD 36" and a regular Sony Wega Trinitron SD 27". Seriously, people are giving away these sets nowadays. I only had to buy the Wega 27" back in 2004. If it dies, I can even get my parents Sony Wega 27". Natural scanlines will always have the right look. Even the line doubling scanlines of the Toshiba HD looks right.

    Nice collection of game you got there cool

    Congrats, too bad it came with Riding Hero. Did you notice the input jack on top of it? If any of your neighbors have that game you can link your Neo Geo's together and play 2-player!!

    Other than that the game sucks.


    On Ebay, there is a guy who sells 1st gen NOS games, common games, for cheap. Start there.

    SS2 is a must have, best game for the system and common/cheap.

    Get yourself an SCART Lead (One with a headphone jack to get stereo sound) and a YUV converter for a much better picture.

    What serial number is it?

    That's F'in sweet man, nice ball top replacement, I really don't like that bean style controller because of the half cut top. Great score! I think I'm done with my collection, I was thinking about getting SSII but I have that in my cab.

    Yea riding hero does suck but its kinda in mint condition so I'm just keeping it for that reason only. I don't know about the serial I will check when I get home.

    Thanks man!

    Update: XRGB Mini Pics using Japan RGB leads. Neo is an AES 3-6 board (under 100k serial with cut traces to remove those nasty vertical lines). TV is a 720P 50" Panasonic Plasma.

    Picture is pretty much perfect!

    Big thanks to Jeff Kurtz, Xian Xi, Fudoh (from shmups) and Retro Console Accessories for your help.

    US and JPN look virtually identical to each other. As far as I know, the only way to tell them apart without plugging them in is to look at the bottom of the console by the serial number. If you see an FCC compliance sticker, then you have a US system. You can find some more info here.

    Nice AES system BTW!! That is one of mintiest ones I have ever seen, especially for a low serial number like that. It's pretty cool that you found that at a game store. I always get a rush whenever I see Neo Geo games at some of the independent game stores around here. It's like stepping back in time. I am sometimes willing to pay a little more than mkt prices just to help them out.

    I think you made a big mistake. go back to the store and return it for a pc engine. I think collecting for that system will be much more suitable for you. In summation, get your greasy hands off my future ebay neo geo purchases

    You werent joking about this looking tits on a plasma. Very nice setup. No need for a hefty CRT anymore.
