Put the unibios in AES mode and change the button mappings in the AES game settings menus.

Hi Raz,

Thanks for the reply. When going into the Options > Button Mapping, the game will lock up and you have to do a soft reboot of the system.

More detail on that, on the 1P side, it looks like buttons are already entered. But on the 2P side, only one button is entered and the rest is dashes. This is as soon as you enter the screen (without actually pressing any buttons to map).


Looks like this:

1P
Light Punch A
Light Kick B
Heavy Punch C
Heavy Kick D

2P
Light Punch A
Light Kick -
Heavy Punch -
Heavy Kick -

At this point, the game is locked up.

Sounds like the MVS backupRAM has corrupted, you will need to reset the backupRAM from testmode hardware test.

Great, thanks for the advice. I'll give that a shot. Is that done through the Unibios menu?

I'll let you know how it works. Thanks again Raz. I appreciate the help.

Actually, it looks like I found my answer from a post you made a while ago:

You can also do it by going into test mode then the hardware test. Flip through the screens until you get to one says A+B+C to clear backup ram. Simply press A+B+C at that point.

@Razoola Thanks dude!

Just got home and was able to clear the ram through the test screen and it's fixed. Finally after over a month. Again, thanks a ton for chiming in. I owe you a drink if you're ever in Wisconsin.

Unfortunately no. I went a couple times a few years ago. The last year it was at the Marriott and then the first year it was at the Wisconsin Center. I'd like to go back again, I just haven't been able to make it since.

Taking this with no context, if you have them and it's not a huge gray area, just shoot them over and I'll put them on a server.
Any more progress on this? I've had a trouble with getting a few files converted (most of them no issue). Thanks!

@hawkeye_ add gmail dot com to my username and I'll send you a link to what I have. It's 5-6GB so I don't want to just drop the URL here.

Hi, I've got an original NeoSD MVS cart and it's run for years without issue. Today all I get is a black screen when I turn my arcade cab on. The mobo is fine and boots to the hatch screen without the cart plugged in. It's getting +5v at the Jamma edge .

I've cleaned the cart contacts and reinserted the SD card but still get a black screen. Also get a black screen if I boot without an SD card installed.

Is this a known fault. I assume I either have a broken cart or a broken SD card? Hopefully the latter as it's cheaper to replace!

Thanks

The most recent posts in the AES thread mention putting a reset.cfg on the card. There's also a lastgame.cfg you should delete, per the official manual. That's probably what I'd try next.

Hi all, just got a NeoSD MVS module, first one ever.

I bought it used with a 32GiB SD card, the whole MVS library is supposed to be on it, looks like it so far.

I can't get it to work reliably in MVS with the first chipset (LSPC-A0, PRO-B0, PRO-C0), I've tried three of them, two MV1 and an MV4, it will reboot at random places, sometimes not even boot. Some games will appear to work but eventually they'll reboot.

It works perfectly fine with a MV2F, which has the second generation chipset (LSPC2-A2, NEO-B1, NEO-C1).

I don't have other working MVS here at the moment, so I can't test newer chipset or more with the second gen chipset.

Is this a known problem? Haven't read the whole thread here yet, I'm on it, was hoping someone would know if its a known issue.

Firmware version: 1.06 R10

Edit:
So I swapped all the caps on the MV4 and used a UniBios 3.3 (instead of the default EU BIOS), its working fine now.. this means I need to the the two MV1 as well, should be running there too

Done this, still no fix. Game just shows plain black screen. Is my NeoSD cart borked?
