    Finding the rpm for SuSe 9.3 is quite easy if You know http://rpm.pbone.net The GnGeo specific page is here.

    You need to unzip the NeoGeo romset in /usr/share/gngeo in order to make it work. You will have to google a little bit, search for "neogeo bios rom" or download them at Spooman homepage or use emule (P2P).
    Copy NEO-GEO.ROM, ng-lo.rom, ng-sfix.rom and ng-sm1.rom to /usr/share/gngeoas root.

    GnGeo 0.6.5.2 now has an experimental gui. You will find a menu entry in KDE/System/GnGeo.
    Please see the /usr/share/doc/packages/gngeo/sample_gngeorc for more information on how to use NeoRageX style Hotkeys.


  • The next in line for the NEOGEO legacy comes the NEOGEO Arcade Stick Pro. It’s an incredibly unique fighting stick in that it comes with fighting games pre-installed! It was inspired by the NEOGEO CD’s controller design and was blown up to fighting stick size. (W 430mm×D 215mm×H 125mm) Additionally, the arcade stick can switch between two modes: Arcade Stick Mode and Console Mode.

  • HowTo transform your xBox
    into a Media Center
    with XBMC

    XboxMediaCenter is a free open source (GPL) multimedia player for the Xbox™ from Microsoft. Currently XboxMediaCenter can be used to play/view most popular video/audio/picture formats such as MPEG-1/2/4, DivX, XviD, MP3, AAC, JPG, GIF plus many more less known formats directly from a CD/DVD in Xbox DVD-ROM drive or of the Xbox harddrive, XBMC can also play files from a PC over a local network and even stream media streams directly from the internet. XBMC has playlist and slideshow functions, a weather forecast and many audio visualizations. All these features enable the Xbox™ running XboxMediaCenter to fully function as a multimedia jukebox. XBMC is easy to use, it's convenient, flexible and offers great price/performance ratio. (This, The XboxMediaCenter Project is also known as "Xbox Media Center" or simply "XBMC"). Note! XBMC is a hobby project that is only developed by volunteers in their spare-time for free. (Remember that XboxMediaCenter does require a modded Xbox to run on or it will not function). fromwww.xboxmediacenter.com

    xboxIcon1. Buy a Xbox, required


    With chance, you can still find this pack from
    christmas 2004. Cost me 199euro

    No Games, but a video DVD is in the pack.
    Remote Controller pack, a lot more user
    friendly than the pad for this application..


    A xBox

    Optionnal

    xbox wireless option
    Network cable, if you want to use your PC as a storage server. M$... sell also a wireless card.
    I was trying this streaming solution 10 minutes, then a strong headache forced me to stop it.

    {mosgoogle center}


    xboxIcon 3. Install a mods chip

    All mods-chips are more or less equal! I mean that some special restriction, like DVD region, macrovision, disk eject, run signed code (from M$ or 3rd party game company) or unsigned code (Linux, softwares and emulators) etc... are not controlled by the mod-chip itself but only by the BIOS (Basic Input Output System, this small program is responsibe for initializing devices, starting a kernel, and low level operations)...So what?
    Differences are:

    • Ease of installation (soldering may be required or not), 1st generation of chips (2000) use to have more than 50 cables, 2rd generation less than 15 cables and 3rd most of the time no soldering.
    • Onboard memory size (up to 2Mb for the latest generation) and number of BIOS you can store (up to 6 with different memory mapping : 6 bios of 256kb or 2 bios of 512kb and 4 of 256kb....)
    • The way you can flash a new BIOS (printer LPT port or USB or through the dashboard with a CD).
    • Possibility of extension: like adding a LCD panel (Xenium).

    Price range is from $20 (soldering required and only one bios like the Aladin) to $60 (2Mb, USB, 6 bios, LCD) for the most expensive.

    I choose theXbit because:
    • Xbit is Solderless (for all XBOX versions from 1.0 to 1.5): All You have to do is to position the chip correctly, and use 1 screw...In fact the double row of pogo pins (pins wih springs) are postionning the chip nearly alone.
    • Xbit accept BIOS up to 2Mb, you can have many bios in the onboard memory (6 memory mapping) and chose the one you prefer with dip-switches (6 configurations)
    • Has a USB interface while other has LPT or none (Some of them even sold the LPT bios loader separatly)

    Xecuter 3.0 was my first choice but it was not available at that time

    All manufacturer have great HowTo sections, for Xbit just follow instructions here:
    http://www.dms3.com/xmanuals.htm

    xboxIcon4. Flash a Bios on the modchip

    Which BIOS?Nearly all mod-chip are shipped without a BIOS installed, in best case you get a cromwell BIOS (open source BIOS develop to boot linux), this is because of legal issues: a lot of BIOS are based on M$... hacked version.

    http://www.xbox-scene.com/bios_retail.html Here you can find a comparaison table of all functionnalities with a glossary of technicals terms

    Executer is a famous modchips builder and they provide their own BIOS free of charge, You can install it on all mods chips since they provide both binary image of 256kb and 512kb.


    {mosgoogle center}


    xboxIcon 5. Installing a new dashboard

    The M$... dashboard do not have: FTP (File Transfert Protocol) support, game backup, file explorer, linux loader, skins support etc... and can only run signed code.
    This is why You must install a new one:


    I have only tried EvolutionX and I am happy with it

    For installing EvolutionX, all you have to do is to locate on internet the file: SlaYer's EvoX Auto-Installer v2.5FINAL.iso (215Mb) and burn it on a DVD-RW or CD-RW.

    Boot your XBOX with this CD inside, and follow the onscreen menu. In 2 minutes, You can have EvolutionX, Linux, XBMP installed. You can even prepare a new and bigger harddisk with no efforts.
    Reboot

    You have now:
    C:As before, partition where the XBOX operating system is
    D:DVD drive
    E:Game save, original dashboard music and all third party applications: dvd reader, ftp, many players, some emulators (5Gb)
    F:If you have a disk bigger than 4Gb you will have some space to store Linux for example
    G:Available if you have a disk bigger than 120Gb
    X:Internal cache (768Mb)
    Y:Internal cache (768Mb)
    Z:Internal cache (768Mb)

    If You want that Avalaunch display your BIOS version in the first page,
    You need to open the file c:evox.ini . For the Executer 4981 BIOS add these 2 lines:
    Rom = "x2 4981.06",0xca25c9b3721da8c96c4770515dbcda07
    Rom = "x2 4981.67",0xb6eb9fb7b79795c962b7f998ee4a8694


    {mosgoogle center}


    xboxIcon6. Backup original data found on c: with FTP to your PC

    Connect your Xbox to the network!Using the remote controller or gamepad, you can go in evox "system preferences", this is the place where you can set the FTP server adress, password, DNS, gateway.

    • Use a fix IP, it should be something like 192.168.0.XXX with XXX from 2 to 255, use for example 192.168.0.10
    • Do not set the 2 DNS (Domain Name Server which is normally your router 192.168.0.1) if you do not want to let your XBox have an access to internet.
    • You can not change te FTP login name ("xbox"), only the default password ("xbox") this is because the login "xbox" is encrypted in MD5, a page onwww.xboxmediacenter.com (FAQ) section let you change it in file fileserver.xml

    Save all changes (save changes is located at the end of the menu), and reboot your Xbox

    Attention: I use to have some instabilities with 2 different crossed Ethernet cable, in fact the FTP was instable and unusable (disconnect and time out problems), I am using a router-switch in the middle now and everything is working perfectly. This is probably due to a mass problem.

    Use your favorite FTP client (LeechFTP, CuteFTP,....) to connect to the XBOX, it is good idea to backup all files found under C: (default dashboard and RSA key pair for your machine)

    If you want to play withEvolutionX: add or translate for example some new entries in the main menu, edit the filec:evox.ini

    xboxIcon7. Install and configure Xbox media center (XBMC) with FTP

    XBMP is now discontinued, a XBMB team decide to rewrite it and create XMBC

    XBMC review at Tomshardware

    "Xbox Media Center (XBMC) for Microsoft's Xbox game console turns the Xbox into a very capable
    multimedia jukebox, enabling it to play AVI (divx/xvid), MPEG, MP3, JPG and many other audio/video/picture file
    formats from CD/DVD, HD, a LAN or the internet
    ."

    For legal reasons, you can only download XBMC source code, but not the binary since the SDK of Microsoft do
    not allow You to distribute binary. The open-source community is currently creating an open source SDK: the XDK.

    How to find binaries:

    • Try to find it on P2P network : eMule, eDonkey or
    • www.geux.net make a light distribution (without codecs, scripts and skins) or
    • If you want to have always the latest build (risky it may not be a stable version since it reflect the current state of development) : http://www.azard.firstream.net/ or
    • Compile it yourself with XBOX SDK and Visual C++ if you own a M$ license ;-)

    How to install it:

    • XBMC is ONLY a directory, copy it to e:/apps/XBMC for example and add an entry in c:/evox.ini
      section "Root"
      {
      ..
      Item "Multimedia Station","e:/Apps/XBMCdefault.xbe"
      ...
      }
    • Reboot and you're done.
    • If you have problem with XBMC, please first read the Frequently asked questions first: http://www.xboxmediacenter.com/info_faq.htm

    xboxIcon8. Adapt scripts (XML files) for your network or shares drives

    XMBC configuration is done through a XML file (a plain text file heavily structured with some special tags),
    this file is in e:/apps/XBMCXboxMediaCenter.xml

    The purpose of this file is to tell the player where to find digital content, because your multimedia files
    can be stored on the XBOX or on the network:

    XboxNetwork
    HardDiskC: or E: or F:
    Digital StorageD: (DVD)
    D: (ISO mode)
    D: (UDF mode)
    streaming protocols
    XNSThe first streaming protocol.
    XBMS"A new network protocol for media streaming named XB Media Streaming Protocol (XBMSP) developed by PuhPuh in discussion with RUNTiME & Pope-X.
    XBMSP is a more simplistic & faster protocol than the XNS protocol currently used by XboxMediaPlayer. Though XBMSP has not replaced XNS it can be used by future XStream Servers to share media files to XboxMediaPlayer. PuhPuh has also developed XSteam test server called "ccXStream" that uses the XBMSP protocol." from
    www.xbox-scene.com 
    SAMBAAn open source implementation of the SMB file sharing protocol that provides file and print services. Samba allows a non-Windows server to communicate with the same networking protocol as the Windows products.
    Samba was originally developed for UNIX but can now run on Linux, FreeBSD and other UNIX variants. It is freely available under the GNU General Public License. XBMC has an integrated SAMBA client and support natively Samba drive

    This file contains a documentation and is quite easy to modify.

    Attentionwhen you copy digital content to the Xbox harddrive with FTP, the filesystem (FAT-X) has a lot
    of limitations! no name up to 43 characters, no special character < > = ? : ; " * + , / | and avoid accents too...

    A list of all available tools can be found on http://www.xbox-scene.com/tools/tools.php?page=streaming

    Personnaly I have only use Relax pre 0.76, I ran into problem with NFS protocol and was not convince
    by its efficiency (speed of access and streaming). I decide to try Samba (smb://) and it works perfectly since!

    1. open e:/appsXBMCXboxMediaCenter.xml
    2. At the end of the file, locate the bookmark section.
    3. Example of bookmark
      smb://xbox:This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..0.4/EOLE/
      where

      • xbox is the windows/linux/macintosh user name (this user must exist)
      • k7sEP1zY is the password, do not use ';' as this has a signification in the smb:// url (use to specify a network domain)
      • 192.168.0.4 is the fix IP of the server (nearly all router can assign a fix IP adress to a Ethernet card) Here this adress is one of my PC
      • EOLE: is the name of one of my share drive,  Share drive name are not mandatory!

    xboxIcon13. Configure Internet

    All You have to do is to specify the gateway and DNS in the dashboard. If XBMC configuration file (e:/appsXBMCXboxMediaCenter.xml) do not contains any gateway or DNS it will use the dashboard settings.

    1. Set the Internet settings  in the dashboard. OR
    2. Set the Internet settings in XBMC
    1: Set the Internet settings  in the dashboard.

    Where
    • A is a FIX IP adress assign by the router to the XBOX
    • B is a constant. aka always the same value: 255.255.255.0
    • C is the IP adress of my router gateway, it should be as default 192.168.1.0 for NetGear and 192.168.1.1 for US robotics. Default Gateway and DNS MUST have  the same adress. The DNS function is explained here [Wikipedia]


    2: Set the Internet settings  in XBMC.
    go into the settings panels of XBMC under internet protocol


    Choose
    A  if you already set the DNS, gateway, IP in the dashboard  (point 1 above)



    Choose
    if you prefer to set the DNS, gateway, IP in XBMC  (same values as in point 1 above)


    ChooseC if you prefer to let the system find DNS, gateway, IP, Your gateway must have DHCP enable!


    If everything is working, You should:

    • See some news (RSS) in the frontpage of XBMC,
    • Be able to query the meteo status.
    I recommend you to set the IPadress here (for example 192.168.0.10) or use you router so your XBOX has always the same adress.

    xboxIcon Install Linux

    Installing Linux is not needed to run XBMC, It is just a possibility among other the xbox has.

    1. So you want a cheap linux box, a small webserver to host your internet page, creating a cluster, etc... You may want to install Linux on Your Xbox
    2. You just want to play multimedia content and only have the standard harddisk (8Gb), You will only have enough storage on harddisk to install XBMC
    3. You are already addict to Linux and have a bigger harddisk (like 80Gb or 160Gb) - You can install both! XBMC and Linux!

    Here are some very good tutorials:

    world shall not be controlled too much)

  • The CDZ was released in 1996 as the Japanese market replacement for SNK's previous efforts (the "front loader" and the "top loader"). The Neo Geo CD had met with limited success due to it being plagued by slow loading times that could vary from 30 to 60 seconds between levels, depending on the game. Although SNK's American home entertainment division quickly acknowledged that the system simply wasn't capable of competing with 3D-capable powerhouse systems of the day like Sega's Saturn and Sony's PlayStation, SNK corporate of Japan felt they could continue to maintain profitable sales in the Japanese home market by shortening the previous system's load-times.

    Popular speculation suggests that SNK made several changes to the CD hardware to end up with the CDZ, most prominent is the rumor that they increased the CD-ROM drive speed from 1x to 2x. The truth of the matter is that the CDZ had a larger amount of cache. Though the CD-ROM motor in the CDZ may have been more efficient than the one in the original, it was still a 1x speed CD-ROM.

    The console had a design flaw which sometimes caused it to overheat after certain periods of time, breaking the console in the process and making it hard to repair. This was a result of a lack of ventilation in the cramped housing of the smaller unit and the inability to dissipate heat generated by the newer drive, which could damage the circuit board.

    CDZ availability

    The CDZ was only officially sold in Japan during its production. However, its lack of a "region lock," and the fact that it could play older CD software, made it a popular import item for enthusiasts in Europe and North America. Today they can be found sporadically on the internet, especially through auction sites such as eBay.

    &160;

    Technical specifications

    • Main Processor: Motorola 68000 running at 12 MHz
      • Although the 68000 CPU was designed by Motorola, there were many other clones of this CPU found in the Neo Geo hardware. The most common CPU is the TMP68HC000 manufactured by Toshiba. This is essentially a Motorola 68000 clone.
    • Co-Processor: Zilog Z80 running at 4 MHz
    • Colors On Screen: 4,096
    • Colors Available: 65,536
    • Resolution: 304 x 224
    • Max Sprites: 380
    • Max Sprite Size: 16 x 512
    • Number of Planes: 3
