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.
Thats weird. While I did have a seperate issue when using unibios 3.1 with a memory card in the AES (crash). Once I removed the card I could load CS2 and start it with no problem.

Tried without memory card. Voltage Fighter works, but Crossed Swords II still crashes.
So its crashing now and not a blank screen? Can you please post a picture of the crash.

I assume it's a crash. After PRELOADING..., I just get a black screen. Pressing the reset button gets a black screen again, after a short flicker. UniBIOS and NeoSD in-game keys do not work either.

Tried on 2 different AES, both with UniBIOS 3.1, using the latest CD *.neo files with fw 1.07 R08, w/o memory card.

PS: Thx Raz for this CD functionality. Highly appreciated. 8-)

Quickly tested most of the games with both BIOS versions.

Those games have the same issue as described above (black screen with UniBIOS 3.1 after PRELOADING..., stock BIOS ok):

ADK World
Blues Journey
Oshidashi Zintrix

Those games have issues with stock BIOS and UniBIOS 3.1:

KoF 96 Collection (black screen after Neo Geo CD loading screen)
Last Blade ("Not Call PrintInit" error after Neo Geo CD loading screen)
Last Blade 2 (black screen or UniBIOS illegal instruction)

I think something else is going on here but I'm really not sure what it could be at this time. I'm wondering if its related to the CD images you are using. What do you have ISO + WAV / MP3 or .CCD /.CUE /.IMG /.SUB ? Also what numbers you have on the version screen of the neosdpro?

Sorry for the long post. The "Code" tag removes line breaks unfortunately.

I can also paste some *.cue files, if necessary.

Your ADK world match crc's of what I have apart from the cue file, given the nameing difference that is expected I think.

I did notice your using kof96. that is the wrong image. the game is kof96 collection. Its a japanese only release. Both your last blades are different crc's than I have.

Thanks. Found another version of Last Blade 1/2. This works now.

KoF 96 was indeed the wrong version. Used an older CUE/ISO/WAV image which also works apart from some sound glitches.

Thanks for the write up Yoshi.

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

Image
I have looked into the freeze and the issue is a missed remapping. I updated the neo and will pass it onto Alex now who I suspect will upload it shortly so it can be downloaded. The new neo size for mslug CD 16,512 bytes. Everyone please make sure your using the latest neos before reporting any issue in any game of this nature.

Raz, you're a god! Thanks. Had the same freeze.

Guys, truerip clone cd dumps are NOT going to work cause the format of the .cue file.

Use redump.org dumps please.

Also, you can get an existing clone cd dump and create a .cue file for it, the image actually works but its the clone cd .cue file that will not work. You can use apps like cdmage cd to open the clone cd image and create a proper bin/cue file. In cdmage just open the clone cd image and choose save as, it will save a proper cue/bin file

Thanks

This time I played all the way up to the final boss with no freezes.

Thanks for the quick fix!

I plan to play lots of Slug CD, so I'll keep reporting issues if I find any.
