From the end user's point of view, it makes no difference whether the emulator's design supports drivers or not. Because either way requires an upgrade. Would SVC work on a version of mame/kawaks/nebula released last year? No, you had to get a recent version for the game to even show on the load list.
as for new games NRX will not emulate any more off the new neogeo's as the system will be changeing but mame on the other hand could emulate it if the right drivers are written for it NRX has no drivers and thats where it will be limited.
here's a good example Snk Vs Capcom chaos NRX cannot emulate it yet mame can and its not hacked and no patches... A driver was written for it .
to get some games working in NRX is to patch the rom now that say something about neorage...
hhmm i compiled mame version 53 and svc( snk Vs Capcom Chaos)works fine
and the driver had to be written for that mame version
but works just as good works better on the older pc's that version ...
and yes you can get svc to work in Nebula and kawaks from versions was released last year. thats what a dat is for ...
and i was never talking about end-user stuff anyway . i am talking about the fact neorage has issues on games that run perfect on mame,nebula, kawaks yet need to be patched to work on Neorage and by all means if i had an older pc then yes i would use neorage X and i hope soon for the rest that like neorage i hope they get SVC to work on it (patched rom )
