I'm interested in getting one of these, but I'm concerned about a few things and I was hoping someone could help:
- My SMS is hooked up via RGB. Do I absolutely need to run the video through the NeoFlash, or could I just skip it?
- I can easily add an audio-out lead from the SMS' A/V port into the flash cart if it's required for mixing. I could then just mod the RGB cable to pull audio from the NeoFlash instead of the A/V port. Is that all I'd need?
Only the audio is needed for mixing the FM. You can skip the video... for that matter, you could also skip the audio if you aren't interested in FM. I've run with the mixing lines not connected at all without issue (other than not hearing FM).
- Is there a compatibility list for games? I enjoy playing the 3D games, so it wouldn't be worth it to me if they're not compatible...I'd just get the Genesis NeoFlash instead and not have to worry about the extra cables.
3D uses the card slot, while the Myth uses the cart port, so there shouldn't be any problems running 3D games.
As for other compatibility, I'm not sure if the odd Korean games work since they used a weird mapper. I need to try those some time. Otherwise, I haven't seen an issue other than those PAL games that don't work on NTSC SMS consoles (the ones that use the undocumented 224 tall display).
- I have hundreds of SMS and GG roms and they're under 200MB. Does this come with everything I'd need to load them all on, or would I need to buy something else?
The cart included there is 256 Mbits, not MBytes. The ideal solution is to get a Neo2-SD cart and run them from an SD card.
- Is there an option to turn the FM sound on and off?
Yes. The default is on since it doesn't hurt anything to always have it on, but if you wish to turn it off to get that "sweet" PSG music on carts that give a choice, you can turn the FM off before starting the game.
- This might be a really dumb question, but does this NeoFlash support sub-directories? I like to keep my ROMS organized: "A-F", "G-M", etc.
Only on browsing the SD card. The flash-only carts only support a single list of games since you cannot fit that many on the cart.
