I m not sure if this bug is already known...

Gun Force 1 ARCADE

When starting screen should appear it immediately turn black without any ongoing process.
So if you hit the coin button you?ll recognize the count of credits. Screen will be still black.
If you wanna play just press start. Game is full playable without any problem.
It is just the titel screen which aint visible.

<<< NEO GEO CD >>>

- Viewpoint After Loading Controls are not working.
  I remapped Stick a couple times. Not able to control or start game

- Last Resort same Issue

And how to enter the Setup Menu for Games ( Blood Metal Slug etc )

Fulg0re,
Thanks for bug the report.
Some good news: gunforce 1 was fixed the other day, please use my test exe (few messages above this one) for the fix.

Also viewpoint & last resort ngcd works fine here, please also try the latest exe :)

best regards,

Hi Dink,


check !

Gun Force with latest Exe is working witouh any failure. Tested it.

For the 2 Neo Geo CD Games i figured out what was wrong.
The main difference between AES and CD Rom ist that on AES you hear / recognize a
jingle after hitting the Coin Button. On CDZ you dont. So if playing Viewpoint and Last
Resort just hit the coin Button than it is no problem to start game and take control of it !

Thats all so far... gonna test my other games.

BTW: What about the F2 Service Menue from NEO GEO AES ... is it also able to navigate to the
menu on the CDZ ? If yes how  ? F2 dont work

Hi Fulg0re,
Neogeo CD games run in AES-like mode, which is the console (not arcade) version.  It means there are no coin inputs for these games :)

NeoCD menu: press the first 2 buttons when you see the animating cd, it will bring you to a cd player(it only somewhat works) and cdz-internal memory card manipulation menu.

best regards,

Hi there

just some small issues or requests...

1.)

Breakers AES sometimes switch symbol from working to non working rom but u can
play and run game all the time... Just a cosmetic stuff....

2.)

On latest FBA EXE it aint possible to play Jojo Bizzare Adventure and Jojo Venture
thats too bad cause it is a great funny game :)

Edit.
I finally found lots of files and built a custom set from
both games which are running in all versions on current
FBA exe. The problem is that lots of files and version are filled with mixed dataset.

Thats all for now ... CU L8tr

HI Dink,

sorry for confusing here :)
It is possible to built older sets to working but you?re right.
Its way more easier to take the current roms :)
Jojo 1 and 2 are working perfect !

Thanx so far

New fba "testversion" exe!

new:
x support for .ips patches which "grow" the romsize, for Megadrive only. (if one is found for another system, let us know!)
x fixed lots of small UI bugs in ips patching stuff, also support roms and ips filenames with spaces - just encapsulate the name in ""
x added Wing Warriors to SMS (see 2 messages above this one for rom link) (very high quality homebrew)
x added "enhanced" versions of outrun, shangon & shangonle - v2.0.2 patches here: https://reassembler.blogspot.com/2011/08/outrun-enhanced-edition.html
x fix for crash in Combat School
x un-break ssrpg (thanks barbudreadmon)

best regards,
- dink

Maybe in a "near or far" future the Cave CV1000 games (cv1k.c) will be supported by the FB(fork) ! Keep your fingers crossed! ;)

Next month i'm getting a new smartphone (with the latest CPU) literally just for these games, which are hopefully full speed in Retroarch with one of the Mame cores.

Having them in FBA...priceless, so fingers crossed  :biggrin:

Small on topic: did anyone notice a bit more input lag in the game ESprade? I always played it in FBA, but recently i tested it in Mame and it seemed more responsive. Is it placebo or a couple of frames less lag?

hi el_rika, I investigated Esp.Ra.De and found that it and Guwange had 1 extra frame of lag (like dodonpachi a while back).  It now responds after 2 frames, just like other emu.
Do you know Guwange?  When you really understand this game, and can keep a chain from beginning until more than halfway through the game, it is the best feeling -- I can't explain it :)  I get the same feeling when doing 2-ALL of Cyvern on 1 coin, but for Guwnge..  it starts with the first level!!

Regarding cv1k - this has already been discussed (though, probably not publicly)
Here's the current cv1k deal, broken down into needed components:
soundcore+finishing+dbug+etc - dink
driver+vid - iq_132
cpu(sh4) - ? (not iq_132 or dink)

When we have sh4, the rest will happen.  basically, we need help w/this one.

best regards,
- dink
