This is a replacement bios for Neo-Geo.

 

We can't link to it, but here's the whatsnew:

 

WHATS NEW IN VERSION 3.0

------------------------

 

Additions / Changes

 

PC-2-NEO

--------

- This new feature gives the ability to transfer data to and from a NeoGeo via a cable connected to a PC. It should be considered experimental at this point but can be accessed from the main unibios menu. See the universebios homepage for more information and how to build the needed cable.

 

- Added disable splash screen option back into general bios settings.

 

- If a game is not in the socket on AES hardware you will see a 'white' blank screen at power on. I changed this to save confusion over some people thinking the old blue color was the result of a hardware check. The Unibios does not do a hardware check in the same way, you must have a game in the socket and use the button code at power on.

 

- Changed the way region is set up on MVS hardware so there is more chance of a system with bad BackupRAM booting correctly.

 

- Made code changes to help stop unibios ASCII curruption when the system is overclocked (untested).

 

- Changed code so the NeoGeo spinning logo (older games only) draws correctly when a system is overclocked (untested).

 

- Button C is now used to exit the unibios main menu.

 

Fixes

 

- Fixed a problem that could cause some games to have glitches after swapping games on multislot hardware when in console mode.

 

- Fixed garbled music with Metal Slug 4 in the jukebox from power on.

 

Cheats / CRC Database

 

- New cheats added here and there.

- Fixed KOF96 boss cheat so numbers no longer appear above the power bars.

- Added another Real Bout Fatal Fury CRC.

- Added another Soccer Brawl CRC.

- Added another World Heroes CRC.

- Added another Ghost Pilots CRC.

- Added Nightmare in the Dark bootleg CRC.

- Fixed a CRC issue with Waku Waku 7.

This item needs to be purchased, but older versions (such as 2.3) are now free.

I was always under the impression that Unibios was a complete replacement, made from scratch. A homebrew bios.

After reading the "Terms of Use" though, it's quite clear that original bios material is still in there, which makes them selling this 100% illegal, and SNK Playmore could sue their asses off if they so wished.

Yeah, so much for all these "Holier than thou" devs, Razoola is making money off stolen goods!

Sure his code may be his own work, but it doesn't excuse the fact that the SNK bios is still being piggybacked to make it possible in the first place. Making older versions free doesn't excuse it either.

 

Why the hell has this gone without being pointed out and shunned? I suppose because the SNK fanboys out there might have a flocking heart attack if anyone did.

Razoola loves making money off arcade companies' hard work. He's been making phoenix sets for years (which is one of the reasons he held off on actually helping the MAMEDevs defeat the CPS2 encryption).
