(Q).What does this mean bios grafix not scrambled
(A).Now by pressing the key combo you can view the Neogeo cd machines, bios And tinker with the, Memory card function it seems to work but you cant, once done this return
or load a game from the bios it's more a novelty at this point.
(Q).What does Auto saving mean?
(A). It means no more pressing left trigger, to save. The emulator detect's when the memory card, is being written to. So now, saving is pretty much like the real neogeo machine, and needs no user input, other then . when the game, asks for you to save at points. This does bring a short delay as, it will save to the vmu when the emulator . detects it needs to write to the card. When this happens the VMU will say saving "wait a moment" Warning only use a vmu With At lest 20 blocks free, and dont use a vmu with importain saves or back them up warning dont remove a vmu when the emulator is on it will crash it.
(Q).What does auto game loading mean really?
(A).New in this version auto loading checks if the lid has been opened, and tells you to take the emulator disk out. It will not thrash the laser like before but only check when you place the, neogeo cd into the dreamcast, and shut the lid. When this is done no user input is needed it will auto load the game wait for it to
load. a black screen is normal till a game loads but over 1 min is not normal Check the game list on what works.
(Q).What's a new progress status?
(A).It's a set of txt prompts telling you what, to do and when, to do it, this should make it the most easy, to use version, better then last time.
(Q). Whats proper 2 player controls ?
(A). Now a keyboard is no longer needed for 2 player games 2, Dreamcast(tm) controlers can be uses to play VS games So proper 2 player controls First version to support this.
(Q).Error? on this version
(A).KOF games have messed loading screens does not effect game play. Some other games prolly have messed Loading screens.
(Q).Still no SFX?
(A).Yes the code is going to be Addapted from Genesis plus SDL in parts and re written for V1.0
(Q).Still Not all games working with CDDA
(A).Correct Around 12 games work with perfect stereo cd sound track Track order is not a problem with real cd's ive been told.

This will scan the selected directory for you and let you know if you're missing any files, or if
you have the wrong BIOS image.
You can then create a DiscJuggler image if the check went OK.

For people that will complain please read.
12 games were tested All worked some what better then v6.5/ Kof has messed loading screens now. But is faster in game and 2 players now work. Your going to have to live with messed loading screens on some games. Or This release would get pushed back till i fixed it or found out why it's doing it only to the dc version of the source.
So On kof please just wait when the loading screen gets messed it did not crash and It will play so just wait a min.
other then that it's a very good release bring 2 player auto saving and loading and much better booting and use. If you dont like V7 you can allways keep using V6.5
Enjoy.. Feed back on how many screens have been messed Up would be nice and how many games it loads.
What other problems you faced or other games that work with CDDA correctly.
