    Hi,

    I'm trying to get neods working on my ds. I'm not sure where to download a bios file and which one is the best. Could you recommend one?

    Thanks [​IMG]

    ... OK this is confusing. I downloaded a neogeo.zip from a ROM site, extracted it like the readme said, and then ran neodsconvert and ... nothing. The zip had 11 files with extensions like .lo .rom .sfx .... I just want to play Metal slug and SNK vs Capcom again

    you don't unzip neogeo.zip

    place it in the same folder as neodsconvert, along with .zips of the games you want to play.

    also, read this, its a neods conversion guide.

    What are MAME ROM sets and where do you get them? I did a google and the results were fairly confusing. How do you make sure they are named correctly? I've never used MAME before, although I've got other emulators working fine.

    to legally have the bios file you would need to legally own the system.

    try reading the readme which came with the homebrew. there is a reason the author took the time to type it. it contains all of the information that you will need. if there are parts of it you do not understand then use the link above, a very helpful post i should add. the neods compatibility thread (stickied) contains all the supported games and their mame arcade names.

    asking for roms on this forum is against the rules, please read them before posting again.

    Actually, I've read the readme and the guide you mentioned, and both assume you've used mame before and have some idea of the terminology. OK, forget the second question, how about the first: what is a mame rom set? I did get a file called neogeo.zip from somewhere, followed all the instructions (the command line prompts and everything) and nothing happened.

    the link that another world posted tells you if games are compatible with said emulator, and what the name of the .zip file has to be for the rom file to be converted to .neo.

    for example, if you wanted to convert SNK vs Capcom, you'd have to have 2 or 3 files in the same folder:
    - a .zip of the svc files, which should be called svc.zip
    - the neogeo.zip file
    - and if you aren't using the command line, you'll need neodsconvert.exe

    run neodsconvert or use the command line and a .neo file should be produced.

    it can't get simpler than that.
