I've read somewheres that in some fighting games for neo-geo you can put them in console mode and they will have a training/practice mode or some will have endings etc. How do I switch the game from arcade to console mode? Thanks in advance

You change the emulator to console mode from the menu.

I'm sorry but that wasn't too helpful. What menu? and how do you get to it?
Thanks. I've pressed f2 and gone into the dip modes and such to turn on the blood etc, but I don't see a setting for console or arcade

you arent any specific either.

for Kawaks its either under the "Tools" menu or somewhere in there (sorry if i dont remember, i dont use Kawaks). for NeoRAGEX, its under the "Machine Settings" Option. for Nebula, press Esc at any point in game and select "Machine Settings", you shoud see the option there.

for Nebula and NRX, you will have to reset the game for the changes to take effect.

Thanks for the help Xeon but I'm trying to do it in Mame. What changes occur when you set it to console? is it true that you can do training modes in some games?

I haven't messed around with MAME settings too much, but I'm somewhat sure that you can't do that with MAME. Perhaps you can in the options menu(tab)?

i dont use MAME but as far as i heard, it its touchy making console mode work in MAME (you may even have to do your own compile, it was removed in the official builds so you may have to find a version that supports it)

and yes, some games have practice mode, like KOF98 and above, Garou and SVC. not sure if there are other games that has practice mode though (ROTD has one, but it is kinda crappy).

To use console mode in MAME you have to do one of these things:
-rename the console bios in neogeo.zip to the name of an arcade bios (aes-bios.bin to sp-s2.sp1 for exemple)
-do the same with the uni-bios and set it to console mode (uni-bios.12)
-use James' build (however I don't know how to enable uni-bios in his build)
-compile your own build (not as difficult as it seems).

I think the kaillera version also has dipswitches added for switching between arcade and console, but I'm not sure about that.

PS: if the MAME team has removed console mode by default, it's because MAME is meant to be an arcade emulator, and console mode is, well, not arcade :D

Thanks for your help. Dah well I guess that having only one emulator has drawbacks, but this is an acceptable one. IT's just too much hassle to switch back and forth in my arcade cabinet. James' version of Mame78b works fine with all the new games. I just need one file for Matrimelee for it to work 266-m1d.bin. But hopefully I'll get it soon.
