+ T + Posted August 25, 2011 Share Posted August 25, 2011 I've just started putting together a custom build of FBL containing only console games. This was intended to be just for my own use and I wasn't planning to make any sort of release of it, but I thought I'd ask here just to see if anyone else would be interested. Basically the build would support 3 home console systems; the Sega Genesis/Megadrive, the NeoGeo AES system, and the Capcom CPS Changer. The Genesis component is self-explanatory and is just the Genesis driver that was previously in FBL1.3. The NeoGeo component differs from FBL in that it is locked in console mode (so you get the extra options/training modes etc. by default), it only supports games that were actually released officially in cartridge form on the NeoGeo AES system, and the supported ROMsets are the AES cartridge dumps where available for an authentic NeoGeo console experience. Finally, the CPS Changer component supports the 12 CPS1 games that were released for this little-known Capcom console. Only 2 actual CPS Changer ROM dumps currently exist (sfzch, wofch) but for the others I will use the arcade sets in freeplay mode until such time as true CPS Changer dumps become available so it will be as close as possible to playing on the real system. All options and settings pertaining to arcade play will be removed from the UI so it will be entirely a console-based emulator. This is appealing to me, not just for the task of putting it all together, but also because I like my arcade and console emulators separate; even consoles that run arcade games. I accept I'm probably in an OCD minority there but if this sounds like something that would appeal to anyone else here then say so and I'll make it available when I've finished it.
