    How feasible is adding the NeoGeoLand menu to the cartridge program itself?

    If reprogramming of the cart can be worked out then it would be very easy (although the in game popout game select menu on neogeoland might not be possible with nice graphics.

    Yes the SVC hack is definitely better than no SVC at all. I'd say it's the one hack that should be left included IMO.

    Would there be any chance of a bios just for the 161 to tailor features?

    With hack. SvC is good no matter what. I thought the hack was just the extra characters?

    A bunch of forty-something video-gaming nerds that are only keyboard commandos and mostly sedate pussies any other hour of the day cannot really be all that aggressive, can they? (My self included.)

    I love the lads here, this forum in general, and the mentality but lets not kid ourselves about this being some sort of dark web tough corner of the world.

    I did a little more work on it earlier today.... Now instead of simply moving to the next game in the attract mode cycle it will randomly choose a game instead. This makes it a little more intresting when left in attract mode.

    While I still don't know enough about where the softdips are physically stored on the cart I have now got this so it loads the softdip settings from the cart. This means if you have stored new softDIP settings with your 161in1, my UI hack will now also use them. The only downside is this means you have to spend some time saving your updated softdips using the standard 161in1 menu.. That means.

    1) boot system to the normal 161in1 gamelist menu.
    2) choose a game you want to edit dips for.
    3) once it boots press testmode and edit dips.
    4) exit out of test mode using the menu (do not reboot neogeo)
    5) hold start until the 161in1 menu comes back.
    6) goto (2) and choose a new game.

    The softdips get saved to the cart between step 5 and 6.

    If for some reason the carts softdips get messed up and you want to default them, the following will work (you need unibios). On step 3 when in test mode, go into the hardware test and cycle to the backupRAM clear option, then press ABC. Then cycle to the crosshatch screen and press B. Once system reboots you can either hold start and procede to option 6 to save the default softDIPs or goto option 3 and set new softDIPs first.

    Another quick question for those with a 161in1. Is it normal to see the unibios exception handling screen when you choose the game puzzle bobble 2? Then once you choose the reset option the game starts normally?

    No, this is not normal. I just tried it with my 161-in-1 and it boots directly to the parental advisory screen.

    This is a great post, and great news. Just what I wanted to hear. Thank you Razoola.
