The Official NEO-GEO Thread!

Recommended Posts

I have to agree Aaron. I mean, I will have to say out of all, I feel that the slowest to accept emulation would be for the Neo-Geo. But I do accept it even if it means by getting more new members to appreciate the Neo-Geo by going the emulation route. It's a start in the right direction to hopefully guide them to buy original hardware. Thank you for stopping by to see this bro. :)

 

Anthony..

I'm not judging. If you've invested that much money into the hardware, it'd be hard to see other options as viable.

Last Resort's default Hi-Score table is populated entirely by early hip-hop references:
Ice T
Public Enemy
Terminator X
MC Trouble
2 Live Crew
Boogie Down Productions

Mr Lee
West Street Mob

Breakers should have done the same thing tbh

Hi guys,

 

  1. 普段見落としがちだけど、SNK作品の背景には様々なネタやキャラが仕込まれているのです(`・ω・´) そんな背景(モブ)キャラたちに親しみと愛を込めてランダムのステッカーにしちゃいました( ´•౪•`) 中にはモブじゃないキャラも?! THE_AKIHABARA_CONTAiNER #SNK #NEOGEO #オノデンpic.twitter.com/yNUok2UgXQ

    It is often overlooked, but the background of SNK work is a variety of (`・ω・´) stories and characters are being schooled I've made a random sticker with love and affection to such a background (mob) characters (' • ౪ • ') Some of the characters are not mobs?!

I created THIS: http://atariage.com/forums/gallery/album/2434-neo-geo-manuals/

because I feel that nobody even had the GUTS to upload scans of the Neo-Geo Games' respective manuals! Coveting them for their own personal collections. Bear in mind, these are a few of the manuals I have for the games in my collection. Many more will soon be available. If anyone wants to contribute to this gallery, feel free to do so-I ain't stoppin' ya!

The Neo Geo CD Came in. It wasn't listed with a game but it looks like it came with a copy of a fighting game Real Bout. Loving it so far; played about an hour last night. Need to order some controller extensions ASAP if anyone has any recommendations on high quality ones. The high score and save feature for the game is really nice. I'm not used to being able to pick up where i left off on a fighting game. It's a loose copy but it was a freebie so.... :)

 

Someone at work gave me this tip: "Just careful playing backups, apparently the NeoGeoCD is notorious for lens degradation on CD-Rs for the difference in power the diode has to use to read them vs original pressings" Anyone encounter this?

 

I'll post another pic when my repro games get in. Cheers'

Hey Gecko

This is really cool. Nice that you decided your time to post them up on the gallery section. I think I have a few to share as well to share. :)

What an amazing looking NGCD top loader you got Rick. It's a real beauty that you got. Thank you for sharing this on the Neo-Geo thread for us to see and enjoy. Nice pick up bro. It looks great for it's ages and everything looks so perfect. Nice score and with that Real Bout that you have to go with it, it's even better for sure.

 

Awesome as always Rick. Welcome to the club with official Neo-Geo hardware my man. :thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

This is really great! Stuff like this is super valuable to archive, so I'm glad you're taking this first step.

 

...though I have to admit to a slight ulterior motive here. See, a couple years ago after being a life-long Capcom fan I found out SNK was more than the half of Capcom vs SNK 2 I didn't understand and was actually really cool! I also noticed that their game translations had a really unique flavor, especially for the time. Sometimes weird, sometimes charming, sometimes nonsensical, but clearly trying to sound natural and American more than other Japanese-translated games of the time. I started to write up my own translations of various lines and compare them to the official ones, and eventually got enough together to throw together a site I called The Mad SNK Project (because I'm crazy to do it). If you want a quick look, check out Billy and Axel's Fatal Fury 2/Special pages, because they're both pretty nuts in their own ways.

 

As the project progressed, I realised I wanted to get into manuals, because they was an entire hidden box of weirdness I never knew about. I started translating the character backgrounds out of the Garou Densetsu 3 manual with no knowledge of if they ever got translated into English, and then I dug up an FAQ that has what I think are probably the official English versions (they're a clear match for the Japanese, just with that unique flavor) but I can't verify anything. The FAQ is from almost 20 years ago and the author has long since vanished from the internet. Meanwhile his Art of Fighting 2 Character Background FAQ not only has what appear to be character manual blurbs, but completely different translations of the fighter copy than exist in the arcade flyer! That's also super weird and fascinating to me. If anyone has an English copy of Fatal Fury 3 or Art of Fighting 2, I'd be super grateful if you'd at least glance inside the manual and verify if the old FAQ is accurate.

 

And looking at the Samurai Shodown II scans Gecko1993 already kindly provided, I can already see a few weird things. SamSho2 is already strange for having such broken English, and while I haven't given it an in-depth look yet, I've noticed a few actual mistranslations hanging around in its script. I rarely see what I'd call mistranslations out of SNK. More often there's a connecting thread where I can see that the translator or editor was trying to be funny and went a bit too far, or they just made something up out of whole cloth. SamSho2 has cases where it looks like there was an actual misinterpretation of the Japanese line that didn't get caught. But looking at the manual, that clearly done by a native speaker who wanted to make a lot of jokes - it has a lot of the same hallmarks of a "standard" SNK translation (constant "poke your eye out" jokes, "Wan Thatta Gotaway gem") but runs out of steam around Nakoruru. After that it turns straight and dry. I really wonder what happened there.

 

I know cataloging old fighting game translations in obsessive detail isn't something most people are going to care about, but I've somehow made it my personal project for probably the next decade. These things just happen, I guess.
