Homemade Neo-Geo to Dreamcast Link Cable Interest

Post#1 » Tue Sep 22, 2020 1:03 pm

Hey guys,

I'm wanting to see who all would be interested in a homemade Neo-Geo to Dreamcast Serial Cable. These would once again be made by
Kevin Mellott who has created some very high quality cabling for us already :)

These are another rare species of dreamcast that goes for high prices on ebay, so having a homemade cable of course would give us a potentially cheaper option.

The Neo Geo cable is used to unlock cool stuff in dreamcast games below are the list of compatible games.

Compatible Games
--------------------------------
Bikkuriman 2000 Viva! Festival!
Capcom vs. SNK: Millennium Fight 2000
Capcom vs. SNK 2: Millionaire Fighting 2001
Cool Cool Toon
The King of Fighters: Evolution
The King of Fighters Dream Match '99

Let me know if you guys are interested in this cable.

This is a neat idea. I wish you could do more with the cable than just using it to unlock some stuff in either the NGPC game or DC game. Would have been cool to use the NGPC as a controller, or some way to play NGPC games on your TV via the connection with the dreamcast.

I'd love to see homebrew that could utilize the Dreamcast-Neo Geo link, it's such a shame that Sonic Pocket Adventure didn't have a Tiny Chao Garden like Sonic Advance!

Someone did disassemble that game a while back, so if a homebrew cable becomes readily available who knows what we could do.....
