Hi guys,

 

Back with Jakob from Japanese Game Exchange. After his previous video on collecting for the Neo-Geo MVS, here we see the kind sit doing another solid gold video on how to spot bootlegs for the MVS. For those that are newcomers and veterans to the MVS, feel free to keep this video as reference. It will be very helpful for you down the line. Enjoy. :)

Heh.

Yesterday I invited a friend and his wife to a retrogaming club; since he likes fighting games we pulled out the Neo Geo AES because during an expo we had an issue with our (turn out apparently it was the RCA to SCART adapter that was damaged).

But because we only have two games on it (because $$$$) we pulled out the Neo Geo CD (which we got DONATED to us. People are amazing. This guy also had a first model Neo Geo CD and other crazy stuff!) and played Samurai Shodown and a few other games, including Metal Slug II.

Now my buddy WANTS a Neo Geo CD :P because he can't afford a Neo Geo AES and games but he likes it nonetheless.

Hey CatPix,

 

Thank you for stopping by. Sorry about the damaged adapter part.

 

But WOW. A donated Neo Geo CD unit? That's amazing. I personally never heard someone donated a NGCD console before.... So he also had a first model, low serial number system? Sounds really cool bro. He must really liked the Neo Geo CD.

 

If you like CatPix, he's more than welcome to come join us. Or if he needs help finding a good deal on one, we can try to give a helping hand on doing so. :)

 

Thank you for sharing this and hope you and your friends had fun that day. :)

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. icon_smile.gif

 

Anthony..

 

Thanks. I'd have to figure out how to record footage for longer review, but I can definitely type up the script. I'm getting the Japanese version in the mail today so I can compare the two. I've put well over 20 hours into the International version by now, and most everything plays great. The one strange glitch I've run into is when playing Crossed Swords, the text language will jump between Japanese and English at random. I found one archived post elsewhere reporting the same glitch. I was not able to replicate the behavior in FireBurn Alpha on my PC, though I can't say for sure what triggers it. My Mini also runs warm if played for more than an hour, but otherwise, it's great.

Great to know Feet.

 

Glad that you're getting the Japanese version as well. A fine edition to add to your collection. We can't wait to listen in on what you have to say. If you would be interested in taking request, I would say, Magician Lord would be the top choice to try out. Challenging, but fun to play.

 

Thank you as always for stopping by Feet. Looking forward on seeing more from you and posting away with us here. :)

Well, my "Japanese" Neo Geo Mini came in this afternoon, and it isn't the Japanese version. It's the International Neo Geo Mini in the Japanese cabinet, the cabinet I already have, except in came with a single Kyo marquee sticker instead of G-Mantle. I am too lazy to send it back (I got a decent deal...), so I decided to hack it. I would have been fine with just restoring the Japanese firmware, but the hack image floating around also comes with multiple pre-built emulators and games, in addition to the original 40 Japanese games. The included FBA emulator in the hack plays Neo Geo games perfectly (as expected, though the games are their MVS versions), and the CPS-1 games also run fairly well. CPS-2 has a bit of slowdown and sound lag, it didn't come with any 6 button fighters, and interestingly there's a pornographic puzzle game among the FBA rom list, but what's there is definitely worth checking out.

 

What isn't worth checking out is most of the other emulators, those being GBC, GBA, NES, Genesis, and SNES. All of them have non-integer scaling, lack of battery backup (save states do work) and sound issues, ranging from NES and Genesis with "okay" sound to GBA and SNES having sound so bad it actually hurts to listen to. GBA doesn't have L and R mapped to anything, so most of its games are unplayable (I only could play Super Mario Advance, many games that may work end up crashing). NES seems fine, but the included game selection is piss poor, with Namco PacMan and Ninja Gaiden being by far the best. No Mario, Zelda, Metroid, Mega Man, or really any of the usual Famiclone games are present. GBC emulation is the definition of okay, not broken but with shimmering and sound channel issues, it's not worth bothering with its 15 Pokemon games and 10 Winnie the Pooh/Yogi Bear kid games. Genesis is the only emulator worth checking out as while it does have minor sound issues and shimmering, the game selection is solid and it plays better than anything AtGames ever put to market. Super Nintendo, however, is rough. Lack of buttons is obvious, but the game lag and sound are the worst I've seen in emulation. And I played bsnes on Intel HD Graphics! You can play more games with a USB drive, but why would you do that? In short, if you MUST play games on your Mini outside of FBA, Genesis is the only library worth your time.

 

As for Magician Lord on my International Mini? Love it but damn is the AES version difficult! Infinite continues are nice, but you don't respawn right where you die like in the MVS version. And reloading a memory card save puts you back to the beginning of the level! There isn't a difficulty select, but I am assuming it's on easy as you get 3 hits (6 powered up) instead of 2 (4) hits. Despite that, I find that respawning right where you die is far more valuable, so I won't be playing much AES Magician Lord until I'm better at the MVS version (which I now have on my hacked Mini). Love the game, but it is really difficult and I'm stubborn to use save states. Trying to stick to internal memory card saves only, which means I'll have to 4CC Shock Troopers/2nd Squad as I learned today neither have memory card support.

 

I guess this is a first impressions again, but I do love both of my International units. I'll try to more formally review both in some capacity eventually, and when I do, my posts here will be great to reference back to.

Oh man! Sorry about the unit not being what you paid for Feet. But reading on what you have to say is good that you hacked it to get it to what you wanted to be.

 

As for Magician Lord. I'm glad you love it just as much as I do. Yeah, its a tough game on the AES version for sure. If you like to practice it to get more experience, that's great it took me years just to beat it and when I did, I celebrated in style since it was like a great personal achievement for me. *^)

 

In the meanwhile, if you like to do a gameplay and review on a title that you enjoy, feel free to do so, will be glad to listen in on what you have to say. :)
