    I didn't see anything about this emulator here. So I thought I'd let you all know.

    http://groups.google.com/group/neods

    It uses the same roms as mame, but they must be converted for this emulator.

    "INTRODUCTION

    This is a NeoGeo AES/MVS emulator for the Nintendo DS. It can run all types of NeoGeo roms with some limitations.

    Currently emulated:

    * M68000 cpu (cyclone)
    * Z80 cpu (DrZ80)
    * All forms of NeoGeo protection/encryption
    * Graphics
    * ADPCM audio
    * PSG audio

    Not emulated:

    * FM audio
    * Raster effects
    * Multiplayer
    * Some timings are not that accurate

    FM audio has already been done in jEnesisDS, so it is possible in theory. It will be hard to squeeze it into NeoDS, as both the ARM7 and ARM9 are pretty busy. But I will try. Most of the graphics in NeoDS are drawn with textured quads. Emulating raster effects using this method would require more polygons per frame than the DS is capable of (as far as I can tell). It may be possible to emulate raster effects using the DS 2D hardware, but there are lots of reasons why this would be difficult."

    Excuse me, but I've been having trouble looking for the NeoGeo Roms. I've seen tuts on what to do and everything, it's just that I cant find the correct roms.

    Before I am to convert the roms, the zip must contain .bin files right? Well here's my problem, everywhere I search/google, I can only find the zips with .rom inside, I have yet to find some with .bins.

    EDIT: Is this correct?

    The 'mame' roms not 'neogeo' roms are the ones with .bin files. Although not all mame roms have bin files.

    I tried this once but it wouldn't read anything. Also, it left a "lingering file". Basically it wouldn't delete and was 0 bytes. Had to delete it at a friend's house.

    Hey, does anyone know if it's possible to place the files in a directory instead of leaving a bunch of Files in the root of my card?

    jan, two more things:
    1- you need proper bios which I donno which is yet
    2- another guy confirmed MS4 working too, it seems that older version's converter works on some game's better than new ones.

    Does anyone know why NeoDSConvert just converts 5 of my roms? they all work in MAME (most of them don't show up in the list I wonder, but they run when I select them from the list)

    I can play every Metal slug, all at decent speed. And what are the bios for, I don't use it, I just load the .neo files from the menu that is there when you start the file.

    you should have neogeo.zip (which is the bios file) in same directory as NeoDSConvert.exe so the produced .neo files have proper bios.
