FB Alpha Release Sun, 24 Feb 2008 18:24:46 +0000 loop To quote Treble,

“Had a bit of time to put a new FBA together. The binaries are now compiled with MinGW as I can’t get consistent results with the Microsoft compiler. Here is the what’s new;

Thanks go to the neosource forum regulars for a lot of this stuff. iq_132 has written many drivers for older games, and Oopsware has contributed some impressive drivers too. Captain CPS-X and KOF2112 have also tidied up some things. This list is from memory and some stuff is sure to be missing.”

Curious as to what’s new? (more…)

FB Alpha Release Thu, 12 Apr 2007 18:38:31 +0000 loop That will teach me to make assumptions that things don’t change. I didn’t run mamediff on the last release and hence missed some errors in the dat file that manifested themselves after the fixes in the earlier release. All should be fixed now so here is the current version.

Thanks go to LogiqX again for checking the files and pointing out the errors.

NB: This release was originally made by Treble Winner at: Downloads are available here, now that the ol’ girl’s up and running again. :)

Hanging’s too good for some people… Tue, 10 Apr 2007 15:16:54 +0000 loop As you may have noticed, the web site has been offline for quite a while. After a little investigation, it appears that we got hacked by some tard seeking to enlarge his “e-peen.” Seriously though, hanging is just too good for some people, so i’m going to agree with Jan on this one. :)

On the plus side, things have changed for the better. Gone is the now aging Cutenews, to make way for the shiny goodness of Wordpress. We now have a robust site that is much more secure and far less prone to spam comments.

Which reminds me, all of the comments where lost in the transition. Not a great loss though as most where advertising Viagra…

Treble has the Bug! :) Fri, 06 Apr 2007 13:13:45 +0000 loop Long story short, most of the FBA team drifted apart (or is that a long term holiday?) many moons ago to pursue other interests. This is also the first post here in over a year, for those still paying attention. We’re still in contact on the odd occasion though, should the winds blow in the right direction.

But what does this mean for FBA I hear you cry?

Well it seems that Treble has the emulation bug again. He’s also released a few rather nice updates and additions to FBA. All of which you can find at his web site.

Neo Geo CD Tue, 14 Feb 2006 13:19:27 +0000 loop Neo Geo CD is starting to work now. Everything is emulated, no shortcuts. Oh, and loading takes ages. :crying:

FB Alpha test version available Sun, 11 Dec 2005 13:21:39 +0000 loop A new FB Alpha test version is avialable on the forums at

The major new feature is support for multi-slot MVS emulation (including marquee lights and coin counter LEDs). This version is not labelled as a test version for nothing; while for the most part it works fine, it has various small problems and there are one or two games that don’t work properly. We need you help to identify or pin-point any problems still there.
