The Official NEO-GEO Thread!

Recommended Posts

Posted over in the Mini Arcade thread, but thought this may be of greater interest here.

 

Haven't posted in a while, but I recently purchased a Neo Geo Mini International. My unit is different from others I've seen in reviews, as it contains the International game set with the Japanese cabinet design. I shot a short video of me playing Magician Lord on it.

 

 

 

Also worth pointing out is that my unit came with one sticker in the box, and surprisingly, it's G-Mantle. I believe this sticker was sold separately in Japan. G-Mantle has cameos in several games, of course, but I can't find any English promotional material featuring G-Mantle which makes me wonder why this sticker in particular came in the box. What confuses me is that G-Mantle isn't playable in any Neo Geo game, and is only a secret Striker in King of Fighters 2000.

 

 

 

But what is more surprising than the redesign is that I believe SNK fixed issues with previous versions. The screen brightness at max is perfect for me; I can see everything except some tiny text perfectly, despite playing it way down at my feet. The controls also feel spot on, both the Mini's stick and the external joypads (I opted for the $110 bundle with controllers and generic mini-HDMI cable, all packaged separately). I've never felt like I had more control in Metal Slug than when playing the Mini (I play the Neo Geo X handheld recently, and felt the microswitch controls to be inpercise for non-fighting games). I can do King of Fighters supers that I consistently on the Mini (the ones I know), though I haven't attempted to do Geese's pretzel super yet. Although it still does not have an internal battery, personally I LOVE having this thing powered on all day through my computer. And from the brief time I played in HDMI, it seemed the same as in earlier reviews, but mine came with a generic cable so I can't say for sure if the official cable would be any better. Does anyone else own one of these? And have access to the black International mini? I have not seen much discussion on my Mini anywhere.

Hey Feet,

 

Great to see you back on with us. I always use to like when gamers show their skills using their feet. I remember as a boy when those played the Rubik's cube with their feet as well. So this is always cool in my books. 8^)

 

Interesting that you mention this about your Mini iI this a later version that maybe they fix the issues with compared to the launch versions? It could be that you have a later model that was introduced.

 

Also bro, maybe you like to do a verbal review on the Mini of yours or play a favorite title on it to share your thoughts on the game? We would love to listen in on what you have to say since you enjoy your investment in it. :)

Hi guys,

 

Back with Atariage member C_Dingo doing another great NGPC video. So here Metal Slug 1st Mission. Enjoy. :)

 

From the description,

"In this video we take a look at Metal Slug's transition to the Neo Geo Pocket with Metal Slug: 1st Mission -- a unique game with enough differences to make it stand apart from its arcade counterpart."

Hi guys,

 

  1. I have an updated Virtual Memory Card NeoSaveMasta available for #NeoGeo 1, 4, & 6 Slots in stock. I ditched the jumpers and went with 2 PCBs this time so it's easier to install and has a switch to disable the card when you don't need it.

IMG-2482.JPG
NeoSaveMasta IC-VMC (Virtual Memory Card)
35.00

The NSM IC-VMC is a virtual memory card for MVS systems that are compatible with the external memory card board. These systems are the MV-1, 4 and 6 multi slot systems. There is a rare 2 slot MVS revision that supports external memory cards.

There is no soldering required for the install, you simply plug in both boards. The “Victoly!!” board has a switch that disables the VMC. This 2019 updated IC-VMC no longer needs the jumpers and is much simpler to install.
