    Turns out it wasn't such a good idea afterall.

    That's because the screen resolution was too low, the aspect ratio was wrong, the emulation sucked, the unit came with a stupid dock and arcade sticks, and the games were overpriced.

    But if they had actually put out just the handheld unit with a quality screen, decent emulation, and a decent price it would have been fantastic.

    Good idea, bad implementation.

    This thing looks dumb. Makes me want to build a Pi-based MVS bartop or something, but why would I do that when I have an arcade cab?

    Question. Are there even any actually good 320x224 pixel screens being manufactured with which one could make a Pi based handheld with native Neo Geo resolution?

    sadly i have yet to talk the wife into a cab even after buying a house... but a buddy and i are working on rasp pi tabletops cause i likely can't afford this little guy.

    as for a ngpc rerelease put a decent screen a nice clicky stick like the og and some good emulation and there ya go shouldnt be that hard really

    Consensus =/= "Permission". They don't have a consensus now either, because clearly he wants one but she's saying 'no'.

    I read "I have yet to talk the wife into..." as "I haven't asked her yet."

    Guess she already cracked the whip. My mistake.

    I took it as her cock-blocking the cab, but who knows. He can't even afford a Neo-Geo Mini, so he's not getting a cab anyway.

    You saw that $100 cab listing I ended up grabbing. It could happen again.

    Hell, I'd buy another project cab for that price.

    I only put about another $150 into it.

    How could the screen resolution be too low? The original Neo Geo was low res, so it must be higher than that. I don't know why changed the aspect ratio, I suppose they had a 16:9 screen, and then they thought the image should take up the whole screen. But they could have at least given the option to change to 4:3.
    I kind of liked the dock for the Neo Geo X, the way it was a replica of the original AES console.
    The ideal screen for the Neo Geo X would have been one with RGB connection, arcade scanlines, and being OLED as well. But I don't know how likely that would be. I don't know which type of internal video connection the Neo Geo X and Neo Geo Mini have- whether it's RGB, or something else.

    The X resolution is higher than the standard Neo resolution but it's not a big enough difference to scale evenly, so even in the correct aspect ratio you're not getting 1:1 pixel mapping. You can switch between 16:9 and 4:3 with the shoulder buttons but there is no option for 1:1 pixel mapping.

    They could easily have just used a 16:9 screen but covered the unused parts with the bezel and had the unit boot to 4:3. But if they did that they'd need to select a high enough res for it to scale evenly in both the vertical and horizontal resolutions, so the games would fill the whole screen with no distortion or cropping.

    EDIT:
    now that I think about it, they could have fixed the whole issue handheld-side with a bezel.

    Just bezel-off everything except a 320x224 field and have the entire system run in that. Problem solved.

    That's sort of what Nintendo did with the 2ds. One big screen with a bezel dividing it to two areas.

    Does the Neo Geo Mini fall over sometimes when you play it, I mean, is it stable? Would it need to be glued down to a benchtop?
    I think the joystick would be better than having a D-pad, but still not as good as a full-sized joystick.

    You have to glue it to the benchtop and cut with a dremel the 16:9 LCD panel in order to fit the 4:3 bezel.
