Neo Geo Pocket

Unread post by Moondandy »

Has anyone looked into doing a core for the Neo Geo Pocket (Colour)? I know when Kevtris was talking about the Analogue Pocket he mentioned the Neo Geo Pocket was easy to do, while the Wonderswan would be difficult.

I am not sure if there was much difference in hardware between the original monochrome NGP and the colour version, but the Colour is backwards compatible with the few games that came out for the original NGP.

Some great games on the Neo Geo Pocket Colour, be great to see it on Mister one day.

+1

I'd love a Neo Geo Pocket core on the MiSTer.

It's a small library but packed with some great games. SamSho and Gals' Fighters on the Switch are nice but we need more!

I just pulled my NGPC out to update the firmware on my cart and played a couple of games. Kinda hard to see on the small screen with my old age.

I have a NGP B/W and was planning on getting a color version one day. The clicky thumb stick is amazing and it has some really enjoyable games.

I feel like a lot of the appeal for the fighting games is the multiplayer which was apparently a big issue emulating from what I've heard

I hope something could get figured out for that

+1 for NGPC core. I don‘t care for 2p-functionality too much.

The NGP is an amazing little system, and due to licencing the chances of seeing an official re-release of Card Fighters Clash is, well, zero.

I would love to write a core for it, but I couldn't even find enough information to make a cycle-accurate software emulator the last time I looked into it so it would just be a shoddy software emulator ported to FPGA for the sake of it. Does anybody know if any more detailed information on the TLCS900H Toshiba chip has ever been released? (i.e. scans).

It might be worth reaching out to Kevtris, he has done/is doing a core for the Pocket. He won't share his work but he may share documentation, I understand he has done that in the past.

The core I am really waiting for right now ! Being able to use an arcade stick to play SVC MOTM would be awesome IMO.
I don't know if it would be possible to play versus mode on the very same MisTer but it would be amazing ^^

I would also love an NGPC core! It would give more people a chance to play Faselei! :D

If I even know how to begin or had any ability whatsoever, I'd work on it, heh.

Same. I had a very respectable NGPC collection back in the day, it's a fantastic little system and I still play Card Fighters Clash all the time on my phone. If I had an ounce of ability or knowhow I would get involved.

Analogue promises their Pocket will run Neo Geo Pocket and Atari Lynx eventually (they announced pre-orders today, but no date for cartridge adapters of these portables).

Is that relevant for the Mister at all? If it's in the horizon for Analogue, can we expect Neo Geo Pocket and Atari Lynx cores for Mister?

Nope. Analogue's fpga cores are closed-source, so they can't be ported over to the MiSTer.

I am wondering if some one are working for Mister portable kit or case... Analogue is bit overpriced and also importing to EU isn't cheap, also heard that international transaction fee could be also charged since they use Chinese bank... little strange that they claim that they US company...

Honestly, a MiSTer portable would be physically huge and rather pointless, not to mention issues with heat dissipation. There's about zero chance of any homebrew project like MiSTer (running mostly off-the-shelf hardware) being a useful portable device.

I prefer horizontal systems... There are lots of porable systems like GameCube, Wii etc... But Analogue product are very expensive with lots of limitations... Also almost 30$ for each adapter for Analogue Pocket is expensive.
