    Sorry to bump an ancient thread, but that's a great one. I remember being able to purchase AES carts at Lionel Kiddie City, Toys R Us, and The Wiz, but never at Babbages. It doesn't surprise me though, since at one time Software Etc. actually sold Japanese Saturn games.

    The team that did street fighter 1 for capcom migrated over to SNK after their work for capcom in 87 and created fatal fury 1 and art of fighting for them.

    Piston Takashi and Finish Hiroshi(the producers) left SNK in 2000 to form Dimps,
    the co producers of Street Fighter IV. So after all this time they got to return to the
    fighting game series that they had started.

    Its said that the team that did samurai shodown 1 consisted of ex SFII staffers. Furthermore many employees swapped
    between Capcom and SNK constantly.

    Also i read that Last Blade 1 had been in development earlier than than samurai shodown. But Samurai Shodown had been given priority by SNK, probably cause they thought it had much more potential.

    Video Systems, the makers of Sonic Wings series found a new home in psikyo(now X-Nauts) after videosystems closed its doors.

    Every AES and the single Slot MVS boards have red power led's under the black plastic housing.

    AES units below 90k(serial number) have a much better RGB picture by default.

    Actually older NGH units have wrong values for the video circuitry in disregard of the values recommended by sony at the video encoder datasheet, this results in a darker picture, snk fixed the mistake at the later units and so they have a much brighter picture.

    The myth that the earlier units have better picture was caused by the latest and more common NGH revision the 3-6 which consists of half of the NGH systems ever made, it has a design problem at the video circuit that causes vertical lines when displaying RGB. It's easily fixed making it perform on par with board revision 3-5 which is the best stock unit as for RGB quality.

    The original and inconclusive research done by nfg, he had no access to most of the systems revisions, made wrong assumptions and didn't knew how to fix the RGB video problem at the 3-6 unit which caused striping.
    http://nfggames.com/games/neorgb2/

    MKL research on the matter, with access to all board revisions a conclusive explanation is offered, since the picture links are broken I'll post another link to the fix below.
    http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showpo...4&postcount=27

    The 3-6 RGB fix link, half of the NGH owners have this board revision:

    Thanks for the info, metallizer. I was avoiding the purchase a Neo Geo console due to the image quality issues I've read on nfg.

    yeah, the local SOFTWARE, ETC. was where
    i got my JPN SEGA SATURN copy of THUNDER FORCE V.
    i remember also seeing several other SATURN imports,
    including a port of one of the METAL SLUGs.

    did you know that the SATURN GAME SHARK cheat cartridge
    doubles as regional lockout override?
    just put it the RAM cart slot, select play game,
    and any JPN game will boot up without a hitch!

    also, i remember getting my copy of the WORKING DESIGNS
    U.S. conversion of Magic Knight Rayearth at that same
    SOFTWARE ETC. for $50.00 new.
    it was the ONLY copy they had in stock, and the very last
    SATURN title to see U.S. release...

    Atari made extension cords for the Atari 5200 joysticks. These extension cords fit Neo-Geo AES joysticks. You just have to remove some of the plastic molding on the side that plugs into the console.

    probably mentioned or known but the MVS knows the last 8 games used in it. It keeps the information for financial reasons (arcade owners book keeping/ deciding which cart is more profitable to keep in).

    If you just drop a NEO one slot into a Jamma cab with more than 3 buttons the D button doesn't work this is wired in a different way to other large button numbered boards/systems

    Never knew these till i owned one and started reading the manual and playing around with it.

    Quick Question my MVS has the choice of Spanish or English language so im guessing this makes it European? Ive noticed red blood in samurai showdown 3 so hopefully there wont be any censoring on other stuff.

    Almost, Ker. You may have a bad wired cabinet. The select buttons are wired to pins 26 and d, which would correspond to player buttons 5, if they existed. Means your cabin has a pin short there.

    when i got the cab it had a cps1 with pang 3 on it I imagine it once had street fighter 2 in it as it has 6 buttons and a kick harness. (the place my brother got it from had a street fighter 2 in the same type of cab for more money and broken)

    The D button works now as i changed the wiring ... my cabs been a sort of project clean it up get a neo in it get it working how i want. Ive left the kick harness inside and such and left 6 buttons on it just encase i ever want to use it for something else.

    Ah, ok. The SF2wiring is typically 3 buttons with the extra harness being the other 3, so the "d" button would not correspond to button 4. IF it jumpered to position 6, that would explain the fun.

    For me, I have a 3 button test panel but I dont do 6 button since I cannot stand fighting games myself. (my fave neo geo games are mostly puzzle games and some fun one slike windjammers and thrash rally

    Just so I don't do the same thing; if you hold in A B C D on an AES controller number two, and hit the reset button, you will bring up a controller test screen. It's a binary check for every controller function. Great for a fast check of new controllers, extension cables, or to simply shut your friend up when he SWEARS you just beat him because his controller wasn't working right.
