    NeoGeo Arcade Cabinet Verification

    Before I make a submission video, I wanted to verify what the rule is on playing games on a NeoGeo arcade cabinet was. (Game is Blazing Star) The cab is at a local game store, I have no access to the cart or tampering with anything on it. My footage is done, but not made up for submission yet. Any answers would be great. Thanks much!

    This goes along with a lot of other conversations we've been having in a lot of other threads. Ultimately, you can submit whatever you want and its up to the community whether or not to accept. Clearly, seeing the board is ideal though it may not be required. Just include as much info as you possibly can. I would include the name of the arcade where you played, perhaps other people can speak up and verify that arcade runs a legit version.

    I am not familiar with neo geo. Does it have a distinct menu that would make it obvious?

    Example for jrok arcade. The menu is so unique that I don't show the pcb in submissions.
    But I do always start at the menu and let the game load.
    Same for arcadesd arcade pcb.
    The difference with arcadesd is that it is freeplay much like xbox arcade.

    Depending on answers above it would seem turning the machine on in recording would be technically sufficient

    Personally I'd like to see the cart. Nothing has to be removed, just a shot of it inside the machine

    NEO GEO does have difficult settings. Its not handled through the typical switches. When you're in test mode, you can then set the difficult for the particular game. Opening up the machine honestly only shows whether or not you have a counterfeit. Checking the settings must be done through software. Of course, this is where we get into the argument of "well the setting can be determined through gameplay" -- which they can.

    Is neo geo something that is heavily emulated or counterfeited?
    If so then it makes it something that would benefit from further info within realistic situation.

    Sounds like if you gather as much info as your situation can provide and you are forthcoming about the context of your experience then folks are going to vote favorably.

    I have no idea how likely a counterfeit is. I'm just throwing out there what any possible objections could be

    something else to consider. I noticed blazing star only exists for mame, not arcade, so you'd have to create the track. Then, you'd obviously get the world record. The owner of the arcade might like the publicity with a world record being set there, perhaps that would convince him to take the time to open it up and let you film.

    I noticed on KLOV there is talk of a neo geo multi-cart. So must be reproduced variations out there.
    Still it might be hard to really pin it down if gameplay is same visually? Maybe it is all moot per the direction tgis is heading with the more open public friendly marketing angle?
