    I wonder if its something where they need a "hacker" because they lack the technical understanding of how to set up the dual pcb's and the chips to run on original hardware. AES/MVS isn't like SNES where tutorials on making your own boards are all over the place.

    But it does sound relatively "finished", as a hacker isn't going to be adding art or writing a ton of code

    Could be that they have some source, or an earlier build with more assets not in the executables, that needs to be restrung.

    I just recently did this with Ironblood on the 3DO M2. Had source, executable had issues. Did some copy and paste work (mostly knowing where to amend data is all the skill needed) across a few different folders of the zip file and changed some file name indicators in the main executable, and after a few attempts I had the game booting on original hardware.

    So it could just be a situation like that. All the files exist for the game, but they aren't assembled / referenced correctly for it to run as expected

    I would guess this is some sub-par homebrew title that they acquired, not something to get excited about. Look at the quality of other stuff they have released. Maybe they are going to sell Super Bubble Pop repros.

    Being a recently-made product, CrouchingHiddenPonyWhatever should include source code when being acquired.

    Is better to think is any non interesting mahjong game, and if by any chance is Last Odyssey or similar, better for us.

    Maybe one of those recent "developments": Xeno Crisis, Project Neon or Wings of Bluestar?

    Nothing too exiting, yeah, but still better than that Pony game. I guess.

    The only thing I want to hear is Crystalis 2.

    Don't even joke about that. That easily would be the ultimate SNK find.

    That’s a serious stretch but it’s as good as any other theory I suppose.

    I just dislike twitter being used as a stage to announce information. Using brief & vague statements of no substance. Followed by evasive responses (if any) to the subsequent questions. Pretentious bullshit.
    The last time someone announced on Twitter that they were bringing out a neogeo proto was March 31, 2012. It’s only been 7 years with no follow up. So don’t hold your breath this time.
    Some men see things as they are, and say why. I dream things that never were, and say why not.

    It's nearly impossible for me to imagine Crystalis 2, assuming it was more than a rumor, would be a Neogeo game. To be viable as an arcade game would require it to be totally different from the NES game.

    I think the guy who put that on the Master List as a rumored title had his head up his ass

    Great news, but I'm 99% sure it's either some lowkey real unreleased game (ninja gaiden 2, hebereke, or even... that poker shit?), or an unreleased homebrew. It'd be really amazing to get one of the most sought-after protos that.. hrrm-hrrm "SOME".. people hoard, but I doubt we'll get one of the black-shelled, red-labeled ones.
    Unless...
    If you have a proto, I have 5000$. PM.
    Looking for info about a specific AES system? Mail id@hayde.neoteam620.com , I may have some.

    Did you mistype that? Those are the games you wouldn't be excited about? Maybe you don't realize how rare that kind of find would be?

    Pretty doubtful Piko could cut a deal with Koei Tecmo to release something like Ninja Gaiden.

    If it is, I hope there will be a concerted effort to harvest every NCI TotC cartridge and convert into the real deal.

    Absolutely. They might be rare but imo the SNK/ADK unreleased games are worth way more. My list (most interesting first) would be FFB, then Sun Shine, then Mystic Wand, then Bi-Plane, then Dunk Star, then Last Odyssey, then wotf and the other third party stuff. Tbh I mainly care about the first games. Idc how I'll get them but I'll get them.
