    Hi All,

    I'm a newbie here and an emulator fanatics. I heard that we could actually play Neo Geo Pocket on the DS. I saw the post calles NeoPop but I was unable to look for any guides on how to install it. Can anyone help me?

    IIRC, NeoPop is the same emulator as RACE, both of which are pretty much unplayable. There's also a slow GBA-side emulator called NGPAdvance, but unless you have a whole lot of patience, there's no real way to play Neo Geo Pocket games.

    I dont know exactly how to install it, but I do remember that it needs a slot-2 card, so if you don't have one of those, you need to get one before doing anything else.

    I see, thanks a lot for the information. I was thinking of replaying some old NeoGeo Pocket games on it.

    RACE! is probably your best bet. I don't think it needs a slot-2 device though. Main problem is that you can only press one button at once - it doesn't register multiple keypresses, which is kinda a showstopper.

    For NeoGeo non-Pocket, there's NeoDS.
