Ignoring the brat above, Barry, any reason scramble and many other games are upside down? Is this the Australian release? :)
Posted by mclane on 18 December 2012 at 15:09    
seems to be anything using the scramble hardware..
Posted by KiethSomataw99 on 18 December 2012 at 15:33    
I wanted you to add games (Darius Gaiden, Storm Blade, Gekirindan,and Cyvern) and fix games (Battle Garegga, 19XX, Fatal Fury 2, Fatal Fury 3, and Samurai Shodown 5 Special)
Posted by barry on 18 December 2012 at 19:47    
@mclane, either use the "Force Flip" option from "Blitter Options", or use a different blitter.
Posted by barry on 18 December 2012 at 19:48    
@KiethSomataw99, what needs fixing in the listed games?
Posted by KiethSomataw99 on 18 December 2012 at 22:20    
desynch in SS5S and 19XX, bug in endings of Fatal Fury 2 and 3, and savestate loading bug in Battle Garegga
Posted by bilalsbz on 18 December 2012 at 23:07    
lo siento hablo español gracias por todo y ojala puedas hacer soporte para linux el unico que le hecho de menos es final burn alpha
Posted by Samurai Fox on 19 December 2012 at 04:19    
@Kieth: FF3 does have at least one glitchy ending that occured on a real MVS/AES, check here for details: -> http://www.neo-geo.com/forums/showthread.php?92801-Fatal-Fury-3-question&s=ea3b3b1e7066ec4ca2fc392d9ad93524 As far as Fatal Fury 2, I'm not completely sure. Can you describe the crash more and what characters cause it?
Posted by Samurai Fox on 19 December 2012 at 04:23    
Bugs found for various Neo Geo games (also noted on the forum): Strikers 1945 Plus (Neo Geo) lags pretty hard most of the time when it shouldn't be in comparison to the real thing (on the actual MVS/AES, slowdowns are minimal). Setting the CPU setting higher seems to fix it, but is not ideal if you want speed closer to its true form. Iron Clad (Neo Geo) has issues where playing on European settings causes the screen to black out. Normally on MAME and presumably on real hardware, this would only cause the screen to dim a little. Ninja Commando (Neo Geo) has an issue where the screen blacks out in the Prehistoric stage when you fight the first mid-boss. Behavior does not match how it should be running on MAME and a real Neo-Geo system.

Posted by apronk on 24 December 2012 at 19:10    
Hi Barry, just wondering, could it be possible to have cheat dat files per system? I like creating cheats but rom naming gets in the way, for instance xmen is for both the CPS2 system and for Konami.
Posted by KiethSomataw99 on 31 December 2012 at 22:51    
@Samurai Fox, i dont play that game but i know someone who does, the ending bug was said to be related to Terry for FF2 and 3 i think
Posted by KiethSomataw99 on 31 December 2012 at 22:52    
@barry, do you plan on at least adding those games i listed in the next update?
Posted by dreamon on 31 December 2012 at 23:46    
please add Asterix (ver EAD) to the next build!
Posted by wilowar on 4 January 2013 at 11:12

Hi barry, on windows 8 the min used d3d dll start at is 46. Your using d3d_43. Now thats irrelivant for the directx 9 backend because its not been updated for windows 8 (nor included by default :/) Could you include d3d9.dll and d3dx9_43.dll with future releases to keep windows 8 happy :) I've created a feature request over at the mingw64 crt to update the directx 11 libs https://sourceforge.net/tracker/?func=detail&aid=3601523&group_id=202880&atid=983356 Would love to see you do a directx 11 backend. Give me a shout if you want to work on it together. Many thanks Martell

maybe another game that should be added to the library is Spectrum 2000 by Yona Tech. That is a cool game.
Posted by KiethSomataw99 on 29 January 2013 at 22:06    
wait, Spectrum 2000 is already on, so add Alien 3: The Gun to the library

Salve Barry io mi sono appena iscritto volevo dire che 20 anni fà nel 1993 la prima volta che avevo visto il vero STREET FIGHTER 2' MAGIC DELTA TURBO. Cioè la Scritta sotto STREET FIGHTER 2' era di colore d' oro e sopra blu celeste e giu la scritta MAGIC DELTA TURBO. Le sto dicendo dettagliatamente che era un' HACK più avanzato più completo sicuramente era un altro set. RYU e KEN 2 fiamme alla volta, ZANGIEF le fiamme dalle ginocchia mentre gira a 360° gradi di DHALSIM, BLANKA quando fa la scossa contro BLANKA si ingabbia Questo era la differenza di un HACK completo. E' ci ho giocato spesso a questo gioco in sala giochi. Barry se ha questo set lo può aggiungere su FINAL BURN ALPHA? GRAZIE!

Posted by Mark01 on 6 April 2013 at 17:37    
Hello Barry ! First of all I would like to thank you for the work you do ! It is very appreciated ! I tested FBA and I think I found some bugs : - When I want to use saves with R-Type it doesn't work... I don't know why but the save file is not saved/stored. This issue exists for many other Irem games as well (R-Type 2, Air duel, ...) but not with Mystic Riders or Vigilant for instance. - Sound in Air Duel is not fully emulated also. So please, could you fix these bugs in a next release ? Many thanks

Hi! Wainting for the next release! =D Go go go go =P
Posted by TheSeanAlfe on 20 April 2013 at 00:02    
There's a bug in Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire. The game reads D button inputs as C button inputs and doesn't read anything as the D button.
Posted by TheSeanAlfe on 20 April 2013 at 00:29    
Disregard that. Whatever the problem was, it solved itself when I tried a fresh install.
