Would someone kindly tell me how to access the general menu of uni-bios: which button combination should I use and when? I need it to switch from console mode to arcade mode. By now all my roms are converted using the universal bios (bios 8) and I am not going to recreate them from scratch with other BIOS.
Someone will ask, "but what difference does it make?" In console mode the continues are limited, in arcade mode they are unlimited (if you possess enough coins in your purse, of course...🤣).

Thank you in advance.

I bumped my thread to bring my problem to your attention again, adding a few pictures to awaken interest in this amazing Neo-Geo emulator.

To this day, playing 24bit arcade games on DS/DS Lite, with this almost 15 years old emulator, has something incredible: I think it is the best and most amazing emulator on DS (with jEnesisDS in second place): games at full speed, no slowdown, perfect music. Games of almost 100Mb (e.g. SNK vs. Capcom) work excellently and smoothly: the Dpad on the DS lite responds exceptionally well especially for fighting games, while sadly the one on the DSi is too stiff and the diagonals don't work.
Only the Super Sidekicks series have graphical glitches.
Anyway, by randomly pressing buttons during gameplay I discovered, if anyone else is interested, the cheat menu (R+start), which is already a great help. But I still haven't given up hope of knowing how to access the uni-bios menu, assuming someone will help me now.
