  NEO Compo 2012
Posted by: Morden - 09-01-2012, 01:19 AM - Forum: General - No Replies

It's that time of year again. NEO Compo 2012 is [or rather was] here, with tons of games and programs for a variety of platforms. Unfortunately, nothing for the Neo Geo Pocket this time around, but I've seen some really cool stuff for the DS [like A Cup of Tea - Super Yeti Edition, and the FPS maker] and a port of Yeti3D Pro for the Nintendo 64, by ChillyWilly. Check it out here:

  New Wonderswan Color demo released

It's not often that you see homebrew stuff for the WS (actually, this might be the first proper demo?), but here's one from the group Titan: http://pouet.net/prod.php?which=59699

Video PCE / TG16 Flash device from Krikzz
Posted by: Morden - 06-05-2012, 06:46 PM - Forum: General - Replies (10)

Well, it looks like Krikzz has a flash device for PC-Engine / TurboGrafx 16 in the works. He just posted a video showing it in action. He did mention that he was interested in making one in the Assembler forums. I guess complaints about the Neo product and its stability issues [which were finally resolved once it turned out the software client was at fault] increased the demand for a better device.

At the end of the video you'll see it uses MicroSD, like his other designs. So far, he's made flash devices for GG, SNES, MD/Genesis [two], N64 and SMS. If he's doing it all by himself, I'm impressed. Maybe once he covers all the other platforms, he'll change his mind about WonderSwan?

  NeoTurfMasta's Pocket Protos

I came across this thread over on N-G.com, but due to the US Goverment not being overly happy with Megaupload, the d/l links are dead Sad

Would anyone mind reposting these files please?

And thank you to NeoTurfMasta for making them available in the first place Smile

  Consolized NGP?
Posted by: Morden - 05-18-2012, 05:37 PM - Forum: General - Replies (3)

Recently, Racketboy has published an interview with Dion Dakis, in which he states that SNK was planning a consolized version of the Neo Geo Pocket. He also mentions that there are some pictures of a prototype out there.

This is the first time I've heard about this, so I was wondering if anyone in here knows what he's talking about. The idea of a consolized NGP is so ridiculous it shouldn't be true, but who knows?

Video NGPC - RGB Output
Posted by: -SD- - 05-16-2012, 03:04 AM - Forum: General - Replies (5)

From a recent thread posted over at ASSEMbler:

syoyumiso Wrote:Hello!

I can't speak English...sorry.

The method of outputting the screen of NGPC to PC using "Nisetoro capture" is developed.
It is Japanese.

What is prepared :
kamereon USBFX2
Neogeo Pocket Color(NEW!...Improved version)
Universal base
2*20 Pin header
2*20 Pin socket

It is not known that I am poor at electronics and it is detailed.
I'm sorry.
However, I would like to introduce.

Behold! the incredibly accurate Google translation.... Dodgy

I think it's the first PCB in the shop link that's required, ¥4980, or about £39.

If you download the .zip file there's a picture of part of the Slim's MoBo, showing the points you need to solder to. There's also some .exe files in there too, but I'm not sure what they're for; unless the USBFX2 board needs flashing?

I've always been interested in pulling an RGB signal from the Pocket, and this seems like the only available solution at the moment.

  Forums Where People Talk About NGPC
Posted by: Flavor - 05-15-2012, 11:59 PM - Forum: General - Replies (8)

From time to time, I search around to see if there are any new discussions about NGPC stuff. If I find something somewhere where I can easily contribute, I often add something. Sometimes, though, I just don't think I should join a website just to add a post.

But, maybe some of you guys are members at these places. Maybe you'd like to join to contribute. I don't know. Maybe you'll just find it interesting that people are still finding the NGPC for the first time or whatever the case may be.

When you come across some new blog/thread/review/etc. about Neo Geo Pocket stuff, post a link here. If you add to a discussion that was linked here, let us know.

Video Neo Geo 3D! by Leonard of Oxygene
Posted by: Morden - 05-05-2012, 08:07 AM - Forum: General - Replies (5)

Saw this posted a secind ago on Pouet's Twitter. It's a Neo Geo [not Pocket] demo which you can run on both the arcade hardware or Neo Geo CD. Or on an emulator, which might be the easiest way.

- > Neo Geo 3D!

Edit: Someone was nice enough to make a video, so here it is. Nothing out of the ordinary [as far as graphics go, but I do understand doing this on a Neo Geo isn't easy]. Raster bars, a vector cube and a scroller, plus a nice chiptune [Atari ST YM!].

  Neo Geo X
Posted by: Morden - 04-08-2012, 09:33 PM - Forum: General - Replies (25)

Not too long ago there was a lot of speculation about a new Neo Geo handheld. Some labeled it as a successor to the Neo Geo Pocket. It was believed to be fake at first, but at this point it has been confirmed that Neo Geo X is very real, even though it's not exactly a new console.

- > Neo Geo X Press Release

As it turns out, Blaze is the company behind it. For those unfamiliar with the brand, Blaze made a couple of Plug & Play mini-consoles and handhelds, much like those by Radica and others. Essentially, MegaDrive / Genesis on a chip, with some games thrown in.

So what are we looking at with the Neo Geo X? It's a handheld with a 3.5" screen which comes with 20 games and offers such exclusive features as an SD card slot, AV output, headphone socket and stereo speakers. All that for only $800. Wait ... what?!

That's right. Supposedly, the thing is going to cost $800, which is absolutely INSANE [granted it's true]. It's a Blaze device, which most certainly uses software emulation to run the games, and doesn't seem to offer anything remotely exclusive as far as I can tell. What do they mean by AV output, anyway? I hope it's not the usual Blaze component output. For $800 you should be getting component, RGB and / or HDMI.

So what's the deal? Is it so overpriced because Neo Geo collectors are willing to spend more than others? If I wanted to play Neo Geo games on a handheld, I could just as well emulate them on a PSP or even DS, and if I wanted to spend money on a separate handheld to do that, I could always get the Caanoo for ~$150. It seems to handle Neo Geo games just fine, and from what I've seen on YouTube, it has enough processing power to emulate PlayStation [although I'm sure the emulation isn't perfect, the games look very much playable].

If the price is set that high to make Neo Geo fans pay through the nose, I'm wondering if this handheld will be anything more than what those Sega licensed Plug & Play devices are to a hardcore Sega fan. I guess we'll just have to wait and see. I never believed Neo Geo X to be real, but more and more portals are reporting it to be legit, so either someone has managed to pull off a good prank or people at Blaze had lost their mind. $800? Really?
