Hello,

 

I recently got my NeoGeo Pocket SD and I love it. But, I have one problem: the suspend feature doesn't work in Neo Turf Masters.

 

In between shots/holes you should be able to suspend/save the game. I choose suspend, but when I turn the game on again, there is no save/suspend state to restore.

 

Is this something that could be fixed with a firmware update?

 

I've tried replacing all the batteries (sub battery included), and a couple different roms, but no luck.

Unfortunately this is one feature that does not work with the NGPSD cart. The firmware checks the cart ID on boot and continues if the same cart is in the machine. Unfortunately when you switch off / on the NGP, the current cart loaded is the menu, and the suspend save data is lost. I don't think I can do anything about this as I believe it gets corrupted before I get execution passed to my code.

That's good to know as some games had this feature and maybe worth noting on the website or an amended printed up manual so no one thinks their stuff is broken or they went insane.

Thanks for the response. I couldn't figure out what was going wrong. Otherwise, the SD cart is awesome!

Yep, I'll update the manual. I'll also have to see if there's some way around this... would be good if it was possible.

Hey SainT, I bought a lynx card from you last year and have registered for the Neo Geo Pocket Color purchase.  Just wanted to say thanks for all your hard work, some of these systems could have been forgotten as their lineups get more and more expensive.  Looking forward to getting a Jag (+ CD??) cart too!  Thanks again man

I just checked on your pre-order site to see where I am on the list, which is position 391. Not sure what this means in relation to when I might be able to get one?

Hopefully a month or two. I've started speeding things up a lot with production in the last month or two.

Sending out a load of emails now for those waiting! :) These carts will have the new style SLS cases which are more durable and look like the original SNK cases at the additional cost of £5 (sorry, this is actually less than it costs me to make, though!!).

Looks like a far better design, looks kind of almost milky colored a bit in the video, maybe part of the 3D printing process causing a haze a little?  Kind of wish mine had that style, but I had one of the first off the line.

I'd say it's a charcoal or graphite finish / colour. These cases will be available if people with the old style cases wish to upgrade. :)

I've secured a Pocket Color, so I'm all in with this.  Funds allocated for the flash card.  :)  I'm at 966 spot now.  :)
