The Official NEO-GEO Thread!

Recommended Posts

Hey folks!

Newest NEO GEO title in my "20 From" series, this is the gorgeous PULSTAR by Aicom and SNK in 1995.

The graphics include pre-rendered and anime-style. The game is VERY difficult and it's a bit frustrating that touching water kills you! Otherwise, great power ups and it's cool that you can increase your firepower just by shooting rapidly!

 

Hey Russ,

 

Thank you for sharing your Pulstar video with us. Certainly one of the best Neo-Geo titles and shooters out there in the video game industry. Glad you enjoyed it nd keep up the great work bro. :)

 

Anthony..

Hi guys,

 

tumblr_oj52rpZq2X1ut6ifho1_1280.jpg

Cheap(ish) brand new Neo Geo CD/CDZ/AES joystick

The Neo-AEC joystick for the Neo-Geo AES was the first truly great joystick controller for a home video game system. If you’re collecting AES or NGCD systems today, they can be expensive and difficult to get ahold of. Average shape used copies are typically in the $100 range, and new old stock can run $150 and up.

Fortunately, the re-released USB version for the Neo Geo X is the same build quality and readily available for $40-$50. With a $15-$20 replacement cable and a little legwork, this can be readily converted to use on any of the vintage Neo-Geo systems.

You’ll need:

  • Neo-Geo X Arcade Stick ($40, Amazon)
  • Replacement lead ($13, eBay)
  • Soldering iron & solder
  • Multimeter or ohmmeter
  • #1 Philips screwdriver
  • Wire cutter/stripper
  • Scrap wire
  • Heat-shrink tubing & heat gun, or electrical tape
  • Around 45 minutes to put it all together

Start by flipping over the joystick and removing the rubber feet, which cover four screws. Set the feet aside, as you’ll be reinstalling them afterwards, and remove all five screws (four under the feet, one visible at front center).

Carefully separate the halves to reveal the controls & USB encoder.

tumblr_inline_oj51zpmu7r1qcul6y_500.jpg

Interestingly, the RoHS soldering is all performed by hand. The layout is very simple, and most pins are labeled. GND is on the center pin of the 3p connector to the start/sel board, as well as the unlabeled 5th pin by the direction pins.

We’re going to solder the replacement cable’s leads onto the main PCB.

tumblr_inline_oj522zhG7A1qcul6y_500.jpg

Unfortunately, the wires for the new cable aren’t long enough to reach the posts we want to solder to. The strain relief that fits into the plastic case is moulded into the cable, so can’t be moved. We’re going to use the scrap wire to extend them.

tumblr_inline_oj52764mmM1qcul6y_500.jpg

Okay, next we need to make sure we get the wires soldered to the right pins. Refer to these pinouts:

tumblr_inline_oj529zvDaa1qcul6y_400.jpgtumblr_inline_oj52aasXct1qcul6y_400.jpg

The bottom of the DA-15S pinout is the connector on the new cable. With your meter set to continuity check, stick a probe into pin 1 of the connector and locate the wire on the other side. Bend the end of it into a hook shape, then do the same to one of your pieces of scrap wire. Solder them together, then insulate with tape or heatshrink tubing. Strip the end of the scrap and tin it with your iron, then solder to the correct labeled pin on the joystick PCB. Repeat for the rest of the pins, making sure to connect 4 AND 9 to the D button, and set 2, 8, and 10 aside. These should be trimmed so no wire is exposed and insulated so they don’t short against anything — pin 8 has +5v on it.

If you used heatshrink tubing, shrink it down now, otherwise make sure the solder joints are wrapped with electrical tape. Coil up the USB cable and tuck it in the front of the housing. If you want to switch back to USB down the road, you can open it back up and swap the cable coming out the back.

Because there’s +5 on the connector and it’s easy to mix wires up, I suggest that you use your meter to compare against a factory controller prior to connecting to your console. It takes a few minutes, but could save you significant time, hassle, and money.

Once you’re feeling good, button it all back up and play some games with your brand new joystick!

Hey guys I wanted to give an update on my Neo Geo games by meg count video. I got around 1 fifth of the games covered but my midterms are coming up soon so it may take longer than expected.

That's not a problem Evan! :)

 

When you feel your video is ready to be showed, I'll gladly post it onto the thread for you.

 

Thank you for the heads up. :)
