Neo Geo 240p Test Suite Beta Updates

Artemio has just released the latest beta version of the Neo Geo 240p Test Suite.  A ton of work has gone into this and it’s going to be the most feature-filled official release the test suite has ever seen!  It can be used on original hardware via ROM carts and both hardware and software emulation – And a physical release will be planned after it leaves beta!  We’ll make sure to keep everyone informed and give plenty of heads up before the physical release ships.

More details (public post):

Here’s a list of the changes since the previous release:

  • New font for better readability via compòsite video, as suggested by Pinobatch. Old font is still selectable
  • Has all patterns and features from any other version. It is the most complete fist day release to date
  • 304 and 320 horizontal patterns, following both SNK guidelines and the full resolution.
  • Custom audio driver for sound test and MDFourier. Uses FM, PSG, ADPCM-A and ADPCM-B or CDDA when in Neo Geo CD.
  • Audio driver can also do a Z80 RAM test.
  • ADPCM-B stereo can be reversed in BIOS for MVS1C systems.
  • Includes HCFR, not as precise as Dreamcast or Wii due to color space, but very decent for those interested.
  • Controller test works with all MVS ports and 4 player extension if available

Future refinements (will be done in a matter of weeks):

  • Improve Monoscope accuracy against broadcast hardware. It is very close now, but will check with Keith Raney
  • Adapt MDFourier so that the same audio recordings can be used to compare MVS, AES and NGCD since clocks differ.
  • Currently an option to limit IRE is available. This only makes sense in AES via composite video.
