  Grinding in Biomotor Unitron
Posted by: Louie - 05-08-2014, 11:00 PM - Forum: General - Replies (2)

Biomotor Unitron was the first game that I got for my Neo Poke. I jumped right into it, and I think its great. However, there is one aspect of the game that drives me a little nuts.

My character is getting pretty powerful now. I can clear the sixth level on any dungeon and I will soon be ready to tackle the dungeon bosses. However, it is a pain having to go through all six levels of the dungeon just to get down to the lowest level again. The levels themselves are not huge, but having to fight all of those random encounters in which the enemy does 1 point of damage and yields only 1 experience point feels like a big waste of time. I wish the game had been designed such that enemies that are much weaker than you will not bother to attack.

  Fatal Fury F Contact
Posted by: Louie - 05-08-2014, 10:50 PM - Forum: General - No Replies

I think that Fatal Fury F Contact tends to get an undeserved bum rap from people who review Neo Poke games.

On the one hand, I agree that of the six color fighting games that SNK released it is the weakest due to the lack of extra play modes and unlockables. It is a straight up the middle one-on-one fighting game. There is no way to mix things up, and no extra characters to earn.

However, it is still a solid little fighting game. All of the color fighting games are good. SNK ironed out the kinks in their control scheme with the two black and white games. After that, the color games all played like a dream.

Thus, it seems unfair to me that many reviewers will give MoTM, Last Blade and Gals Fighers an A+, and then give Fatal Fury a C. I would say that it deserves a B- at worst.

In any case, that is my opinion.

Rainbow Spambot attack
Posted by: Morden - 05-05-2014, 04:51 AM - Forum: General - Replies (6)

Ok, so each time I visit, there are new spam messages, and every day, there are at least five users celebrating their birthdays. There are over 250 pages of registered users, but only about 60 people who have ever posted. This includes users who have only posted once.

I haven't checked the list before, so I'm not sure if new users keep registering, or if the current state of affairs if the aftermath of the spambot attack from last year.

Either way, some cleaning is in order. Personally, I would do away with all of the users without any postings, then I would take a look at those who are left [one time posters, mainly].

If those bots keep on registering, I would also take a look at the registration procedure, captcha, question - answer check, etc. and maybe see if MyBB offers a more bot proof registration alternative.

Current number of users is insane, and if this is left unattended, eventually it will become one hell of a mess to clean up. I've seen dozens of forums that got so spammed, you couldn't reach any of the original info and posts, even if you tried. Digging through thousands of pages of spam wasn't worth anyone's time.

So, bots-be-gone!

  My new addiction (NGPC)
Posted by: Louie - 04-08-2014, 09:22 AM - Forum: General - Replies (6)

This story starts back in 1999. I was attending a conference in Salt Lake City and during a break in the schedule I wandered across the street from the conference centre to a game store. I was thinking about picking up a Gameboy to keep me occupied on the five hour flight home. As I was browsing the games I noticed that there was another handheld system on the shelf. It was the Neo Geo Pocket Color. At that time I had never heard of SNK or Neo Geo but it looked cool. I left the store without buying anything. I figured that my new fiancé would be miffed if I came home with yet another device that played games. We were supposed to be saving up for our wedding.

In the time between then and now I learned about SNK, and Neo Geo, but I somehow forgot about the NGPC.

A year ago I decided to become a retro gamer. I was fed up with the direction that modern games are going in and wanted to experience some old school goodness again. I subscribed to Retro Gamer magazine. In one issue I came across a reference to the Neo Geo Pocket Color and I said "Oh yeah, I forgot about that." I looked it up online and saw that it had a small but awesome collection of games. It sounded about right for what I was looking for. I did not want to collect hundreds of games. I just wanted some old school goodness on the go.

I spent a couple of months watching EBay too see what the going rates were for systems and games. Then two weeks ago I decided to jump in. I probably went a little overboard.

I now have two hardware units and have purchased all of the following games:

Fatal Fury F Contact
King of Fighters R2
Samurai Showdown 2
Match of the Millennium
Card Fighters SNK
Card Fighters Capcom
Metal Slug 1st Mission
Metal Slug 2nd Mission
Dive Alert : Matts Version
Dark Arms
Bio Motor Unitron
Bust'A'Move Mini
Picture Puzzle
Puzzle Link 2
Pacman
Sonic Pocket Adventures
Neo Turf Masters
Pocket Tennis Color
Dynamite Slugger
Neo Geo Cup 98 Plus

Most of these are cart only (cheap).

I am running out of games that I can afford to buy though. I saw a copy of Faselei (English) for $150 in a local store. My jaw dropped. Who pays that? I will have to start trolling for dealings now and hope that I can find the remaining games on my hit list at descent prices eventually. They are:

Faselei
Last Blade
Gals Fighter
Magical Drop Pocket

I also intend to get a Flash Masta to play homebrew and translated games.

In any case, NGPC is my new favourite toy.

I Name is Icer/Eric I just wanted to introduce myself. I have a Neo Geo Pocket Color Collection, that I started back in 05 or 06, then I put my collection on hiatus in 08 due to college and then starting my career 2 years ago. The Last item I was able to acquire was the Pocket linker.

Let's see, a few things about me, I love Technology, Computers, Phones, Linux, Cars, etc Tongue
How did I get here?
I was googling around and came across this thread when I looked up Pocket Linker to get the software again though I wont be able to get it up and running on my 64bit System lol. Thus I am Now here and am looking forward to buying a LinkMasta in the coming Months.

Heres a Picture of my Collection thus far, Soon to add a few items Hopefully.

  NGPC display replacement
Posted by: mic_ - 02-04-2013, 07:08 PM - Forum: General - Replies (1)

One thing that has always bugged me about the NGPC is the god-awful LCD. It's very dim and highly reflective.

Does anyone have more details about the display (interface, dimensions, operating voltage, etc)? Are there any mass-manufactored display modules that would be a good fit as a replacement? It would be really neat if the original display could be replaced with a backlit, high-contrast TFT display (preferably with some anti-glare coating), similar to how some people have modded their GameGears.

Have any of you played it? I just finished it (including the 50 level dungeon) today. Took a few hours and was quite entertaining. Smile
