@cnoto Cool! I did something similar with the speakers in my cabinet, but I think yours turned out even better. The speaker covers were a good choice.
There are actually several MAME roms that are essentially video pinball machines. The coolest thing about them compared to console or PC pinball titles is that they actually prompt for coins (like any other arcade game) and keep real high-score lists (also like most other arcade games). Some are better than others, FYI. Time Scanner is pretty good, as is Pinball Action, Speed Ball and Grand Cross (which is really unique).
I face indeed the same issue, i recently started using my Pi3B+ again to make a Sega only system, and after a clean install, FBNEO performs really poorly. compared to the FBALPHA it used to run before i stopped using that Pi.
In any event I'll try the suggestions here, and also have a look which version is included by default before i update it.
@mortalwombat i think i would be incline to agree with @mitu that it’s likely an internal button that doesn’t communicate with the OS. my point is that you don’t really need another button for retropie.
EDIT: samsh5fe titlescreen is still 'Samurai Showdown V Special', maybe it's not the 'perfect edition'.
Fullname of samsh5fe is "Samurai Shodown V Special (Final Edition, location test version)", it is indeed what some people refer to as "Perfect Edition". The word "Perfect" feels kinda counterfeit though, afaik they simply removed some gameplay elements from "Samurai Shodown V Special" (probably making the game more casual in the process) to make room for a story mode.
Except if you are using a non-merged romset, you'll probably need its parent samsh5sp.
From what I understand the "Perfect" edition of the game is an emulator that runs the "Special" edition, and overlays it with new content. It isn't a self-contained ROM.
To be more precise, the commercial emulator from "Samurai Shodown Collection" uses some quirks to replace the title screen and to add an english translation to the story mode. FBNeo use the raw romset and doesn't have any of those quirks.
Your bios is all wrong for neocd, you should have a neocd.zip and a neocdz.zip and they should not be in a separate folder. I'll have to check later but they should be in your BIOS directory.
No, as i said, you are trying to launch games for 1 system (neogeo pocket games) with an emulator for another system (lr-neocd, which emulates neogeo cd) while using the bios for a third system (neogeo mvs/aes). You need to decide on 1 system.
If it's for your father, you can never go wrong with neogeo aes/mvs, which was the dream console for anyone from my generation. Neogeo cd was the "cheap" version of that console, and while emulation cancel its main drawback (loading time), the graphics are still inferior to the mvs/aes and the games use more storage, so i don't recommend it. Neogeo pocket was a handheld, and a niche one.
Documentation about neogeo emulation is there : https://retropie.org.uk/docs/Neo-Geo/ . You'll have to read all of it and the linked documentation specific to the emulator you'll chose, otherwise i think you can give up on neogeo emulation.
@AndersHP Well, "in the hunt" is not a neogeo game, but whatever.
With you not mentioning at all the emulators you are using, i have a hard time making sense of your issue tbh (are you even using libretro/retroarch cores for those systems ? i would expect the standalone amiberry to be the recommended amiga emulator, and the mame libretro cores to not allow disabling raster irq this way).
Or are you saying you are playing neogeo on amiga ? Is there a neogeo emulator on amiga ? Why would it run an irem m92 game though ? O_o
I'm still not entirely sure why it's necessary to use 2 desktop/laptop apps to get these NeoGeo roms working? (after the initial formatting of the MicroSD, I've generally just had to use my laptop to download & USB the roms themselves).
