NeoGeo Pocket Emulator

Post by Superstrider » Thu Jun 12, 2008 2:47 pm

I'm well aware of the fact that Neo4All, a NeoGeo CD emulator for the Dreamcast, exists, but is there one for the hand-held system, NeoGeo Pocket? Or, does Neo4All cover that system too? I'm curious to know... Can anyone inform me?

RACE DC port was going to get an update soon.

NeoPocott DC and DC NeoPop are worth a try, too.

No, they aren't. RACE is by far the best NeoGeo Pocket emulator for Dreamcast.

Don't be so harsh Chris, NeoPocott DC and NeoPop really are worth a try, ok, so they're not the best as in speed/compatibility, but they really are worth throwing on a CDR along with RACE.

OT Chris: we really should get together and make a 'Dream Emulator' boot disk one day, every emu on one CD image with instructions/download for a romdisk - what do you say?.

I haven't tried RACE and I'd have to agree with this. I tried NeoPoccot a few years back and it was soooo slow.

You're probably right. It's just that there are few occasions where I put alternative, classic emulators on a CDR along with what I think is the best one. SMEG and SMSplusDC is such an exception.

Also, when someone asks for an emulator for a certain system, I try to point to the best, simply to avoid confusion and to help preventing some frustration with older and slower releases. If someone then decides to also test the other emulators available, then that's fine with me.

That's certainly not a bad idea. :) - Although I think it would be better if we were to include only a selection of some of the most interesting emulators - and update the SBI repository along the way (as there are quite a few releases missing). With the SBIs everyone could do compilation CD with whatever emulators on one disc.

I would also propose a new standard as on how to rename SBIs as it's hard to identify the most recent version (or any version actually), but let's discuss that at DCEvo ;)



Btw, Juan is right, there's a new version of RACE coming:

Flavor: I've always got something else to work on. Though, I don't often plan what will be the next project. I don't know. I was fixing up the Dreamcast version of RACE the other day. That's pretty much done now, though. I've got some other ideas, but my main upcoming project is raising a - to be in about a month - newborn daughter.

PS: The full name of the emulator seems to be "RACE! (As In Koyote-Land)" - I can't really make any sense of it. What does it mean?
