    Voting is up for DarkSofts Neo Geo Multi Cart Design.

    Go here and register if you need to. There are 2 proposals, one that has no battery and flashes one game at a time, and another that uses a cellular phone battery and flashes 4 games at a time.

    Sucks ma' cawk....

    This is what we have all been waiting for, for a very long time. Get over there and add your input.

    Close to Completion:
    Bravely Default - Skyrim (pc) - Dragon Quest IX -

    Games I can't beat that make me violent:
    Solomon's Key (nes) (fuck Solomon and his damn key) - Festers Quest - R-Type - Ghost Pilots

    Go ahead and delete it. I didn't realize we were completely banning all posts related to multi carts and boots, since there seem to be so many.

    It would be nice though if the community could have some say in this, and had a heads up.

    It has nothing to do with being a multicart and everything to do with certain people hating Darksoft. Certain people need to get over it IMO.

    Its posts like this that will probably end up getting this thread locked/moved to the war room again for being not only unhelpful but being far from reality at least from my mindset. You have your opinion and that's fine but lets keep this thread on the multislot device only and not what people think other peoples motives are. This way the thread will probably stay and end up being positive for everyone.

    It goes like this... if he handled things properly FIRST time... I would've been more inclined to go easy on him...

    ...Their arrogant blaise attitude to the site pisses me off... It's them saying "why respect anything that people achieved on NG.com... because we're THE BESTEST"

    I've followed them on multiple forums and their attitude has sucked there as well... PERFECT example was the war room thread... that I thought was resolved...

    Bumped it... instead of making a new thread in the tech/market/or general forums... because "Tak" said it was ok to keep posting on page 3...

    WELL... here's the deal... I will NOT "get" over it... they play ball or I'll NOT be happy...

    THIS thread can stay here...

    xROTx

    PS. As for some of you guys... I don't mind you stating what you think atm... but you need to start thinking about the place as whole and not your one vision of it...

    EDIT: I have stated why things went the way they did before... I won't tolerate it happening again... play nice or I'll completely cauterize this project...

    I think all parties would be best to just let it go. Mitsu and Dark should follow the requests that were laid down and keep it to the sections that they were told. Raz needs to stop acting so petty and jealous and find something more constructive to do with his time, cause he is tarnishing his reputation big time. If the lot of them had half a brain they would be working together on these products instead of fighting each other, cause his cart has potential to be a big seller.

    comments I saw somewhere are very negative toward the battery type, something about charging every 2 days.

    not my call, and I wish that this project had a place here. It's not just about Bootlegging, otherwise CD to AES/MVS conversions would have been banned as well.

    I have already spoken my peace about the reception of this, and its creator (all good things, I may add), but there are people that disagree with me and a load of other people so there's that.

    I've cast my vote, and look forward to the finished project. Here's hoping that it comes in its own Repro Cardboard box, has its own repro label, Mini Marquee and Dipsheet.

    and snaplock case if an AES version is made

    In my view this project does have a place here also.

    But just like the previous thread on this NeoGeo matter it would likely survive if the people involved in its making (and those on the outside with attidudes without understanding what's being brought up) treated people with respect instead of taking every little perceived negative (which it is not) like its the end of the world and a personal vendetta.

    There is nothing wrong with questioning what the makers are saying this will be for the sake of clarity, so lets try again from Mitsus response and my original reply.

    Quote Originally Posted by Mitsurugi-w

Works for us since we don't need to add the extra memory to run those games. (They have been very professional with us BTW) Not sure where Raz is getting his info but it obviously isn't from the only place that it's being posted now which is our site. Planning stage is wrapping up now. We are running polls to try to use the features that most users want. Some of the results are surprising but there are many ways we can go about this and we want to make the most people happy. Obviously some will not be satisfied and have already told us they won't buy one but I don't think there will be much problem moving the carts based on the excitement we are seeing.

    If you want the real info about the project visit our site. Certainly want to limit the discussion here but did want all users to have their say in its design. The site address is mentioned at least twice in the last three pages so I won't promote it here again.
    That would be very good to here if true and I will applaud you and darksoft if this is the case, I know the pitfalls however. So from your statement would you say then that potential buyers of this device should be expecting the device to play original games as the data is on the original cart with no patches being required in the program ROM space to make the game run or remove protections?

    If you can confirm this for us now this point can be put to bed. If not then you can surely see why people will feel mislead by your statements of 'designed to play all original ROMs' cause your in the same boat as the multicarts.

    I would also like to bring up homebrew games, in this case 'Knights Chance' by NeoBitz. In your forum darksoft made it clear he would not take any steps to protect Knights Chance from being loaded and played on this device. Do you share this same view and is this how your going to treat the NeoGeo homebrew scene if they are not NGDEV?

    The knights chance is a good point. I forgot about that game. But from my unferstanding its no longer in production. I wonder how kurtz feels about it.

    If people want to play neo, there going to find a way. Emulators come to mind. I feel the people who truly love the neo (the community here), should be able to enjoy the games without all the shady ebay trabsactions. Pretty much every console has an everdrive now, and prices have not changed.they continue to rise. The shelf players wont stop buying neo anytime soon, in favor of a flash cart. Im sure they will find something wrong with it. Lets face it, the main fear here are the shelvies that think there garou is going to drop from $700 to $650.which is highly unlikely. And the people who make conversions.

    Bit back to knights chance. Has kurtz commented? I obviously cant speak for him, but over the years he has done a lot for the community. I would think he cares for the community, and loves the neo. I wonder if he would even oppose. I would think not. But again i do not know.

    Going into developing retro games for dead consoles, i would think one would take into account the possibility of a flash cart in the future. Especially after the everdrive boom. If anyone knew this was possible, i would think kurtz would have known this before almost everyone. Given his obvious background.

    Please do some STV and CPS2 menu before ng stuff and the promissed cps3 speed flash. thanks.

    I am so happy about the NeoSD. Another flash cart without menu would drive me nuts!

    Its all very strange, seems things are still not going to plan for darksoft.

    Don't get me wrong, a tracker format converter is quite a nice thing for the NeoGeo. However, this does not really have anything to do with a flashcart apart from using it to play the results of the conversion. Listening to the tracks its clear its a long way from perfect still but it could be quite good if improoved more. In the end though this is more a dev / PC tool than anything else.

    The butter is spreading very thin ATM. I believe darksoft mentioned there was sopposed to be another video last week relating to showing the prime use of their flashcart (playing official NeoGeo games) but it did not come. He seems to now be trying to push the dev angle, but unless he has a fully working flashcart, and it accepts a direct connection to a PC via USB cable (to bypass SD card when needed), it is going to be no more benificial to devs than the neoSD.

    @Raz

    Don't you need the info from M1 to generate the catalog for your V chips and the neo geo logo music uses that catalog?

    At the beginning of the video you see the boot sequence and then the intro logo with no sound.

    Maybe I'm completely wrong and lived believing that all this time.

    Its kind of amazing how enthusiastic some of the members over there are. I get being excited for something, but "shutting the mouths of non-believers in the word of Darksoft?" Yeesh.

    Wouldn't it make more sense to keep this to a hardware vs hardware comparison rather than the people behind it. I personally can't wait for an impartial side by side comparison.
