Neo-Geo AES Love

I have noticed a lack of tracks in the AES line up. Since they are looking into the 2 player options and going to be digging into website @admin staff would it be possible to at the very least add the games to the AES section?

    Neo Geo AES is essentially Neo Geo MVS - which is already tracked under "Arcade".

    Cue the purists view of AES is not Arcade. :P

    They even have the same ROMs AFAIK.

    Ok i wasn't sure and as a purist the AES is the same as MVS just with some pins swapped to prevent the cheaper MVS carts from playing on AES but otherwise identical. Thanks for the info as i have both AES and MVS and have been looking into some records :-)

    I guess a purists view would go something like:

    Some games are only AES and some games only MVS - just because it's easy to mod the systems to swtich them, doesn't make them original. :P

    There are plenty of other home systems which have been used in the arcades (or vice versa) & a great many recent arcade machines "are just PCs". The split is still honoured on the scoreboard.

    I have a 6 way Neo Geo cabinet. "The Behemoth" as I call it. I love that machine. Because I love fiddling, I had a Windows 10 PC connected to it, pumping out the arcade video signal with an old ATI graphics card (15000hz?). It was an exotic and finick beast. I could play all the games I wanted on it, but every now and then windows would decide that this second monitor would become primary and would move all the icons over to the Neo Geo screen, making navigation difficult.

    I gave up on Windows and dropped in a multi card that I got from @Marcade (one of the pandora's box). It works decently enough to play my favorite fighter games.

    If I come across a decently priced NEO Geo multi cart or ever drive equivalent I'll hook everythign back up the way it should, but I am far more of a mad scientist than a purist.

    I have 3 cabs, 2, 4 slot big reds and a 2 slot goldie and the aes.

    I looked into an everdrive and they are over 400 bucks :-( still cheaper than most carts.

    While true some games were only MVS and some home (CD) some carts were not made for home use and the cd release games were not on either MVS or AES (CD exclusive)

    I'm just glad I know where to look now :-)

    tg already chose to track both seperately, so any discussion on if its truly difference is kinda moot now, unless theres a request to merge them.

    as a historical point i believe it was the other way around. Although AES is the expensive one now, at first it was cheaper. Arcade operators could, and therefore had to pay more. The cheaper AES has to have swapped pins to stop it from playing on the mvs. you likely know more than I do so i'll accept any correction, but i thought that was the reason for the difference in pin.
