    Default NeoGeo on the Blackberry Playbook

    NeoGeo on the Blackberry Playbook-iconcb.png

    A NeoGeo emulator for the Blackberry Playbook.


    Usage

    The startup UI works just like it would on a PC. Drag the mouse to the game that you want to play and press once to select it and double click it to open it. If you don't see an image to the left of the game list then you don't have a game selected. If you are using a keyboard you can also navigate this list using the up and down arrows and start a game using enter.

    Besides the dpad and the coin, start, A (red), B (yellow), C (green), and D (blue) buttons there are also 4 buttons in the top right that are not visible during gameplay. Clockwise from the top left they are:
    - switch between 1st and 2nd player controllers,
    - open the ROM select screen,
    - load a saved state,
    - and save the state.
    The load and save state buttons will require you to pull out the keyboard by swiping towards the centre of the screen from the bottom left.

    The keyboard layout for playing with two players is:

    Player 1:
    -------------
    coin -> 9
    start -> 0
    up -> up
    down -> down
    right -> right
    left -> left
    a -> n
    b -> m
    c -> j
    d -> k

    Player 2:
    -------------
    coin -> 1
    start -> 2
    up -> w
    down -> s
    right -> d
    left -> a
    a -> f
    b -> g
    c -> r
    d -> t

    A NeoGeo bios is needed to play games and will be composed of several files all which should be stored in shared/misc/gngeo/bios. BIOS - gxgeo - Details about the BIOS Files has a nice table that shows all of the bios files. Make sure the files are named as they are on the left hand side of the table and the uni-bios is not supported.

    ROMs need to be zip files and should be placed into shared/misc/gngeo/ROMS. You also need an rc file for each ROM. They should have the extension rc and be placed in shared/misc/gngeo/ROMS/romrc.d. If you open them with a text editor you should be able to find the name of each file in the zip file somewhere in this file. If you get a message saying that a driver could not be found for your game then you are missing the appropriate rc file or the file names in the rc file aren't correct.


    Download

    That's not an rc file, it's just a list of the files. The rc file needs to tell the system how to load the game. As an example the one that I have for Metal Slug 2 looks like this:

    Code:
    longname Metal Slug 2 - Super Vehicle-001/II
    game mslug2 MVS "Metal Slug 2 - Super Vehicle-001/II"
    CPU 0x300000
    241-p1.rom 0x0 0x100000 NORM
    241-p2.rom 0x100000 0x200000 NORM
    END
    SFIX 0x20000
    241-s1.rom 0x0 0x20000 NORM
    END
    SM1 0x20000
    241-m1.rom 0x0 0x20000 NORM
    END
    SOUND1 0x800000
    241-v1.rom 0x0 0x400000 NORM
    241-v2.rom 0x400000 0x400000 NORM
    END
    GFX 0x2000000
    241-c1.rom 0x0 0x800000 ALTERNATE
    241-c2.rom 0x1 0x800000 ALTERNATE
    241-c3.rom 0x1000000 0x800000 ALTERNATE
    241-c4.rom 0x1000001 0x800000 ALTERNATE
    END
    END

    Thanks for the help, can you explain a little more about rc files - I'm not really following how you create them.

    The app tries starting and immediately quits, and never made it past the splash screen. Tried uninstalling and reinstalling but no luck. Any ideas?

    Do you have any ROMS on your Playbook? What about the bios?

    Sorry for late reply.

    Yes I have several ROMS under gngeo\ROMS and put the bios files under gngeo\bios. The program seems to just immediately crash...

    I'll recommend the usual reinstall and reboot but I'm still trying to decide why it's crashing on you. It runs for me without the directories and even if I don't allow the application access to files. I put a test version of GnGeo on github that outputs some information during startup that might help me try to figure this problem out. If you run it it should output some information to some text files in the folder shared/misc/gngeo.

    this is excellent; this will have to be a project for the new year but i'm glad it's ready to go. Along with the snes and genesis emulators i really won't need to buy a portable gaming system like i've been thinking about.. ...although; at this rate i may need to buy a new playbook since i only have a 16g....here is a thought; can those files be saved on a cloud storage??

    You need two files to get it to work and they have to be in the right place, there is no way to browse to a different location. The zip file needs to be in misc/gngeo/ROMS and an rc file with the same name as the zip (so if you have kof2002.zip it would need to be kof2002.rc) file needs to go into the folder misc/gngeo/ROMS/romrc.d. You can find archives of these rc files around on the internet. The menu system is also a little bit bad (it's meant for the PC version). You need to move the cursor over to the file name and click it. If you don't see a picture on the left hand side than either no file is selected or the rc files is missing/invalid. Then you can double click to start the emulation.

    If you don't mind going back to King of Fighters '98 or '99 I recommend using the Neo Geo CD emulator instead. It's still a little bit of a pain to set up but not quite as bad as this and the menu is so much better.

    EDIT:
    For all the people who find this emulator a pain to set up, here is a pack containing all the files you need in the right folders:
    http://adf.ly/X4TM0

    Just install the newest Gngeo-pb bar, open the emulator then close it, then go to /accounts/1000/shared/misc/ and replace the folder called gngeo with the one with the same name inside the above zip file (you have to unzip the file first) and you are ready to go, Gngeo-pb with 35 games included that work perfectly and you just had to replace a folder!!!! and you can now play games like metal slug 1-5 and kof 2002 with a friend thanks to the multiplayer support in the newest version of Gngeo-pb!!
    Let me know if it worked for you.

    Los roms de los juegos que bajes los tienes que poner en zip adentro de la carpeta de roms, no los descomprimas, los archivos rc van en la carpeta de romrc.d y tienen que tener el mismo nombre que el rom que quieras jugar menos la extensión, ve estas imagenes para un mejor entendimiento:
    http://i1312.photobucket.com/albums/...psa1c0fc8d.png

    http://i1312.photobucket.com/albums/...ps02f45bf9.png

    Tambien no se te olvide poner los archivos de la bios, esos si descomprimidos en la carpeta bios:
