cdz was never released in brazil, we do have jpn units here that were independently imported. I noticed Dion said in assembler that there where colored boxed cdzs in brazil, but that never happened. I follow the Brazilian online market for 13 years already. If it was out there I would have seen it by now. I meant argue this with him on that forum but that guy is not worth my little free time.

These are the systems SNK's branch Neo Geo do Brasil sold here:

http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/album.php?albumid=153

All top loaders, transcoded to PAL-M (a variation of NTSC but with the PAL-N color stream), Portuguese bios setting, (both Euro and USA jumpers active), games start directly in Portuguese mode when available, works in 1995 to 1998 releases and fully localized packaging material.

I have a huge collection of Neo Geo do Brasil neocd ads and flyers scans that I can zip to you.

and last, I've been postponing to help out with the neocd games scans project due to lack of free time. I do have a flatbed scanner and 3/4 of a complete ngcd collection plus I can scan some non-available material like the portuguese neocd manual and the Samsho2 cd translated manual that's the only game manual I've seen in Portuguese.

The cdz was never officially imported here, it arrived here independently by the same shops that offered jpn ngcd games at better prices than Neo Geo do Brasil offers.

Yes you can use my album pics in your site, no problem.

I'll gather around what I have here at the moment and upload it you you.

Neo Geo do Brasil started here in 1993, SNK bought an already established MVS distributer, Tron Comercio, from that point until the release of ngcd it dealt exclusively with MVS hard & soft lineup.

The ngcd release happened here simultaneously with the north american release, 1995. The hardware was assembled in Brazil to benefit from government tax reductions policies.

http://www.megaupload.com/?d=KK82SLCI

From 1995 to 1998, Neo Geo do Brasil had an enduring market campaign with ads in vg magazines in order to stay relevant against Sony, Sega and Nintendo.

The branch closed doors on the very beginning of 1999 when Brazil dropped it's currency parity with U.S. dollars. From 1BRL = 1USD overnight it became 3BRL = 1USD, tripling the price of every SNK product for local customers, basically.

That's briefly what happened, that's lots more into it like, pre-releases, the hyper 64, neoprint, neocarnival, the neogeoworld amusement park etc...

About the Brazil region for the NGCD, it's both USA and EUR jumpers active. Bios wise is the same, it depends if the game support this feature, like most of SNK releases from 1995 starting with Super Sidekick 3 to KOF99. The game boots directly into Portuguese language, of course the game must have that option and if it doesn't the system behave like a USA system.

I don't know if there are other jumpers combinations, I never played around with the jumper module, there are four parameters and two can active at the same time, it offers lots of combinations to try. Again the software must support it, I don't know if SNK planned to offer other regions. Only that SNK planned the Brazil region from the go, as even the first batch of systems assembled here was dual jumpered.

Sure, you can you my pics in your site, permission granted.

Besides the system boxes that carry "Produzido na Zona Franca de Manaus" which means "Assembled in the Free Economic Zone of Manaus" the system also display that info in the back sticker. I've upload some shots at my ngcd album along with the BRA system region jumper shot.

It's a little funky since the last board update but if you click in the links, it's working.

Also placed some treats for you here:

I do have plans to scan a brazillian manual, but I´m looking for a loose manual to do it as a proper scan will deteriorate the condition of the manuals I have here.

Content wise, it´s the same as the english manual, with pics and everything.

@kuk, thanks for the new scans!

bought a lot of 25 sealed ngcd games, three came with brazillian manuals.

top hunter is already available, just confirming the existence of burning fight and league bowling.

I´m leaning towards not opening these games, eventually I´ll get a hold of more copies.


update:

found for auction, price is too steep, imo.
