Well, with the rise of Freaked Roms, I think I've finally seen everything the Neo scene has to offer.

Yup. First, it was the freaking of freaked shit (the supposed impetus of the n g f 'authentication' program), now this.

What a show this has been.

I'll be sure to tip my waitress on Tuesday!

I swear it's like Chris is two people on the forums. Sometimes he's reasonable and talks stuff out, and then he flips to this arrogant sociopath.
it's fun trying to guess which one is posting.

The only time he's "reasonable" is when he's trying to craft out a believable lie.

All I can say is this - there is no such thing as any "lost" KOF 2000 English, there never was, never will be, and I am 1000% positive on this.

There were 100 - period.

As far as I'm concerned there aren't any, thanks to a couple of dick bags...

Blame the mame team. here is the email I got from a few WEEKS ago when I tried to send them the rom. I was being honest in saying I was planning on inserting some markers in the null space of the rom to make sure it would not be credited to someone else. Nothing that would show up in the actual game. Their loss.

Hello,

BrianT of the Dumping Union here...

We have had an email forwarded to us regarding the NeoGeo proto Last Odyssey.

We, the Dumping Union and MAMEdev would be interested in 100% original non modified dump of the cart. If you can supply a clean 100% original dump of the cart please do so.

Neither group is interested in a hacked version that would contain “NGF” inserted anywhere as mentioned in the email. If this is your wish just release the rom set to the public and it will be included in other emulators. The dump might eventually end up in MAME but it’d be listed as a hack and not a true proto. Both groups are interested in preserving the actual arcade game as it was produced or sold. The Dumping Union and MAMEdev is not interested in drama from a release where a small group can say “We have the real data and you have our hacked up roms.” There was some controversy about the KOF99 proto when it was dumped and release with hacked credit initials. Now no one is 100% sure that that set is unmodified. This is not something we want to relive.

I can tell you though, that MAMEdev does indeed credit the dumper. If you were to supply a non modified rom set to MAMEdev (through me or otherwise) we would credit any name you wish. This is the standard practice. We have had thousands of games released and added all unmodified and each credited to the dumper.

So I would respectfully request you send a “clean” dump of the proto, if you so desire, so it can be preserved for the future and enjoyed by everyone.

Thank you for your time,

Brian


That is truly incredible. I'm once again surprised to what extent someone can be a compete dick and yet have zero awareness of it. Truly you are the Royden Ziegler of Neo Geo.

Lets just say you had this ROM (which you don't, and never did, and probably never will, and neither will anyone else) it would be an amazing act of utter douchebaggery of you to insist on pissing NGF's name into its perfectly white snow as a condition of release. What's incredible is that you are so deranged you don't even see what as asshole that makes you.

You just explained what a dick you are to everyone (in a fictional universe anyway, one where you have this ROM, which you don't) and you don't even realize it. And when you read this you'll just think to yourself, "Once again the masses are jealous of how awesome we at NGF are, and they are also probably fat."

Incredible.

Man, the more Tuesday nears, the more nervous I'm getting. You guys really have no clue what's in store.

And no, SNK isn't doing another Homecart run. That's not historic, it's milking.

I'm just so freaking thankful that I discovered this...

This better not be one of those "I discovered this one little secret to make your dick 4 inches longer" pranks.

What's special about Tuesday? Why not today or tomorrow or Monday? Is there any significance?

This is fucking gold.

No one in even the ROM world wants shit to do with anything that has "NGF" involved, not even if it's a decade talked about prototype.

LOL

Yes, there is a reason it has to be Tuesday, I'll explain once the announcement is made.

Actually just finished up a draft of my post revealing this find.

I haven't slept in 3 days.

Very nervous.

I will just go and say back when KOF 2000 came out, I was collecting Japanese carts anyhow. Better/fuller art on them compared to the US ones. So this whole "no official kof2000" never bothered me. Hell, I had the entire series at one time, just to collect them all. Never effected me one bit, and never did I lose sleep over it. :)
