Hi,

Here is a public release of my NeoGeo emulator frontend compatible with GnGeoLibs for android! You'll find attached the full apk for free, but you can buy it from the market if you like my work and want to support me

Here is the market link and description : https://market.android.com/details?i...dibox.neodroid

- Download and install neodroid apk AND gngeolibs apk
- Put bios archive (neogeo.zip) inside your roms directory
- Put roms anywhere but in the same directory as your bios file (neogeo.zip)
- Compatible with mame roms format (from "www.rom-world.com" for example)
- Run at full speed on 1GHZ+ devices
- Compatibility should be the same as the GnGeo version 0.8 emulator

GnGeoLibs is based on GnGeo by Mathieu Peponas : http://gngeo.berlios.de/
GnGeoLibs, like GnGeo, is released under the GNU GPLv2 licence: http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl-2.0-standalone.html and source code can be requested by pm.
GnGeoLibs use the 68k core from the generator project by James Ponder.
GnGeoLibs use Cyclone 680x0 core by fDave, Reesy & Notaz.
GnGeoLibs use DrZ80 core from Reesy & Flubba.
GnGeoLibs use YM2610 Mame core by Tatsuyuki Satoh.
NeoDroid do not contains any roms and you MUST own the original game before downloading some.
NeoGeo is a registered trademark of SNK PLAYMORE CORPORATION.

- Problem when using "home" system spotted : be sure to have the bios file "aes-bios.bin" in your neogeo.zip file (still not working very great)

Hi Melchizedeck,

you should try neogeo bios and roms from rom-world.com (but not the neogeo ones, the mame ones). I'll try to add debug output on rom loading for next release.
