Neo Geo on the Falcon030

Neo Geo games running on the Atari Falcon030.

Thanks to the MC68030 MMU the Neo Geo hardware emulation is rather easy. The game programs run natively and doesn’t need any patches. However, the Neo Geo BIOS does need a few fixes; namely the RAM checksum routine and the real time clock synchronisation.

For more details about this experiment please visit the discussion at the Atari-Forum.

Have a look at Metal Slug running on a stock Atari Falcon030 in an early stage. Note that the emulator version shown in this video is in fact only about 8 kB in size.
