the_maq,
I just played a game of super sidekicks 2 on ngcd without issue, it's possible your cd image is either defective or in an unsupported format.  Make sure the cd images you get are in the trurip and/or bin/cue format.  If you don't feel like procuring new images, there is a little easy to use/freeware tool that will convert to the proper format - check this message: https://neo-source.com/index.php?topic=2487.msg26465#msg26465

EDIT:
Just realized that I broke fastforward w/neogeo under some circumstatances - it's fixed now, and I'm thinking this might be where the crash was coming from.  Oops :)  It happened the other day while fixing another problem.

best regards,
- dink

@Dink: the select stage cheat doesn't work for turtles in time? but there's no problem with the rest of them.

I've noticed a strange bug with FBN on Retroarch. When I load legend of hero Tonma (jap version, lohtj.zip), I got the World version ??
The rom is correct because when I load the same lohtj.zip with mame core (current), I got the japan version, so I think FBN is reponsible ?
Another question, why there are no warning japan copyright text at start for Irem M72 roms ? (R-Type is the only exception)

grab the new cheat.dat - it fixes the entry for the stage select cheat: https://neo-source.com/index.php?topic=139.msg34387#msg34387

The loaded romset is clearly the japan version. Why do you think it is actually the world version ?

I didn't hook up the protection MCU yet for IREM M72, and its this mcu which stuffs the warning into vram.  This mcu isn't very important, which is why emulating it has a really low priority.  It doesn't control game logic, it just gets the game to boot and a couple tiny other things & that's it.  The "simulation/hack" which we use now does that just fine.

Difficulty is lower on the japan version. There are more enemies in the world revision (which is very rare because most of the western arcade revision have lower difficulty, but not for Tonma).
I've made 2 replays with both counter stop (on pcb and on mame), so I know really well both versions : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLqZUIyT8c0OImPBeGJhGJcfClWc0ZYg6w
I recognise that the differences between the two versions are subtle for the average player.
Also, why I can see the differences when I load the same jap rom with mame ? (and not with FBN)

Can you please tell me exactly how - like, the easiest way to tell the differences?  I loaded up loht and lohtj with mame and played the games side-by-side and couldn't notice a difference.  Once I can do this, I will be able to look into the problem in fbneo :)

I just tried Ninja Emaki, and I'm quite confused. Just moving around (using a keyboard) will randomly teleport you from time to time.
Is that supposed to happen? Or maybe the game reacts poorly to direction inputs that were not possible on the original cabinet? Thank you.

Probably the usual simultaneously pressed down opposite directions bug.
It's not happening with a gamepad/joystick.

Hi Stifu,
As Tatsuya79 said, some games don't like opposing directions pressed (even accidentally).  Driver has been fixed, thanks for your bug report :)

p.s. did you see this update - added the color filter to Navarone a few weeks back :)

best regards,

Yes, I did, thank you!
I just thought it'd be bad to spam thank you comments every time (and so I just use that "applaud" link thing thinking maybe you get a notification or something), but I am grateful for all of your work.
