  Neo Geo Pocket Power Issue?
Posted by: Senk - 09-09-2012, 04:51 PM - Forum: General - Replies (9)

So, I've been trying out the games I got for the Neo Geo Pocket Color ON the actual system since I like the feel of using it. Unfortunately, my Neo Geo Pocket Color seems to be malfunctioning from what I can see. After using it for under three minutes, it turns off.

As I've received warnings about the CR 2032 battery, I don't think it's that. Also, the batteries I've been using are fairly new (set to expire in 2017) and I used one pair of them for roughly 30 hours before the system turned off. I just assumed they were lower quality batteries... but, now I think the system may be struggling.

Since I've only used it briefly, I've never noticed if there was an indicator of low battery life. I know that the red light flashes if the CR 2032 battery is not in the unit, but is it supposed to do that if the AA batteries are low on the handheld? If so, this is definitely another problem since I've yet to see that happen. Pretty frustrating since this was a very clean system.

Oh, and for the record, I've been using the Flashmasta to play Faselei (I'm not paying $80+ for it when I've bought nearly every other NTSC/EU game). This didn't happen until I switched from playing normal games to using the Flashmasta, but I doubt it would cause a problem, right?

Just wanted to get an opinion from you guys. If you know of particular hardware components in the Neo Geo Pocket that might need replacing, let me know and I'll give that a shot. If you think I need to try more batteries, I guess I can order more. I need to find my battery tester.

  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:

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?

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:

I can't speak English...sorry.

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

Neogeo Pocket Color(NEW!...Improved version)
Solder

Resistance
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!].
