NeoSD Pro - Neo Geo CD Support

17 Jun 2019, 21:18

Just followed the TO FPGA Direct on VT and learned about Neo Geo CD support on the NeoSD Pro. Great stuff. 8-)

Couldn't find any info how to setup, so I just tried and want to share how I did it.

1. Download the necessary support files from the download page

https://downloads.terraonion.com/login

Image

It's actually a zip file, so just rename it to *.zip and extract the content.

It contains the required *.neo files for the CD images.

2. Copy the *.neo and CD image files to the root directory of the SD card

Image

The name of the directory with CD image files (cue/iso/wav) must be the same as the *.neo file.

For example, "Crossed Swords II" requires the "cswords2.neo" file and a directory named "cswords2" with the CD image files.

3. The Neo Geo CD games show up in the NeoSD Pro games list with a "(CD)" suffix

For example, it will be listed as "Crossed Swords II (CD)".

NeoSD Pro CD Master List

A list of supported games can be found in this topic...

PS: Please provide the *.neo file for Thrash Rally (it has additional control options). Thx.

Thank you very much for this. I ordered my NeoSD Pro last week. I'm looking forward to receiving it (Hopefully soon). This will be useful to help me get Cd game setup.

Are you on the latest fw? Ensure it shows 1.07 R08. If it's R07 you need to update with the fw released yesterday. R07 can run all cd games but gowcaizer

Looks like an issue with UniBIOS.

Voltage Fighter and Crossed Swords II do not work on my UniBIOS 3.1 AES. Get a black screen after PRELOADING...

Both work with AES stock BIOS.

Other than that, I have some sound fx issues with Soccer Brawl and Metal Slug 1/2, both BIOS versions.

Getting the same black screen as well with all of the CD games I've tried. Do we need to rename all of the files to the same name as the .neo file?

Thanks for the write up Yoshi.

I got Metal Slug working. It froze on me here:

I was able to get back out to the NeoSD menu with A+D+start, but the game itself was totally locked up.

Also for KOF 96 Collection, I don't get any sound.

No. I assume it gets the directory name from the *.neo file and reads the *.cue file.

Thanks first for the new add the Neo Geo CD suppport, i was always dreaming to play Samurai Shodown RPG patched in French on my AES, but in my case there are so many bugs of the sounds (intro, distorsions..) anyway it is just the beginning cause it is not stable for now.

Thanks for your explains cutie Yoshi :)

Yoshi tries to look evil. Doesn't seem to work. :lol:

Regarding the sound fx issues in some games. I switched from CUE/ISO/WAV to CUE/CCD/IMG/SUB images and at least some glitches went away.
