NeoGeo Super MVS Converter II plug question...
Mr Vengeance
Not the most exciting topic in the world but anyway! Smile

Now for some reason I cannot link to the page directly because of the website not wanting me to I think, but anyway, I was looking at the Super Converter II MVS/AES converter tonight on www.neo-geo.com and noticed that sometimes you need to get a replacement plug in order to get the Converter to work properly.

I'm living in Ireland (same electricity set-up as the UK) and am running a Japanese AES through a normal step-down transformer, as you do. Does anyone on here have the adaptor I'm looking at and did you need to get the plug replacement? I could just go and buy the converter and give it a chance without buying the plug replacement, but you know how it is, I'd like to just get on with things when the Converter arrived and not have to order anything else afterwards, what with having to wait a week for it to arrive and everything....


Any advice would be welcome chaps Smile

Hi Mr Vengeance. I have a Super MVS Convertor II. I was a bit confused at the time (being new) so I ordered everything! - but I didn't need the seperate plug adaptor thing. It tells you on the Arcade Shock page here if you need it or not:

http://www.arcade...detail.htm

You need to check the output on your SNK AC adaptor (that came with your Neo Geo) - it will be 12v or 5v output. If it is 12v then you need the extra adaptor- otherwise you don't.

It is a great adaptor - I love the Blue LED and it is very sturdy. The only downside is that it won't play Metal Slug X. It plays all other games though. (You can also adjust the amount of power to the unit - if games appear too dark or too bright - but I have never had to change that setting)

Hope tha helps Grin

I have had three neo geo aes' since buying an mvs covertor 2. The first Neo did not work with the convertor. I have sold it since on ebay. I have bought two more since, I have one in locked away, the other is in front of me and is 5volt and works perfectly, it says NEO PRO-POW on the adapter.

Err is this useful? I shall post what adapter the other neo has which works fine with the convertor.

Odds on you should be okay! I do remember though when I received my convertor and plugged in Metal slug 1 and .... nothing happened, I was most upset.
 
Mr Vengeance
Seems to me that these things aren't maybe the best road for me to take....

My plug has "POW3" written on it.
 
RiKo
Email the guy at the site and tell him what gear you have - he was very helpful when I needed information.

BTW Metal Slug works fine. Its only X that doesn't work.

Good idea! Will do that now.... cheers Grin
 
Mr Vengeance
Well Riko, I emailed that guy about my plug and he was none the wiser either! Seems my mystery plug seems to not be very common at all.... might be a rarity in fact!

Anyone want to swap me Garou: Mark of the Wolves AES for it?? Grin
 
RiKo
Priest will give you Fatal Fury Special for it Grin

I don't know what to suggest about the plug - you must have a super rare model - what is the serial number of your console?

lol. I bet you wish he had 3 'special' power adaptors - then you could offload all your copies Priest Grin


Mr Vengeance - Well I had a good look at my Neo this evening. Underneath it says model Neo-0, and some other stuff (how technical am I?), and then before the serial number it says 9A. and it also says only use AC adaptor Neo PRO-POW2. However my adpator is Neo PRO-POW (no number 2).

However my Neo works fine with this adaptor. You could try Neo-Geo.com Vengeance - they will probably know something about this.

Well anyway, my Neo underneath says its model number is NEO-O It also says use the Pro-Pow3 AC adaptor only. Serial number is 90A - 169715

Might have an old look on NG.com as you suggest bud
 
RiKo
Thats a later one you got there - I guess they must have changed the hardware a bit later on. I wonder how high the serial numbers go up - mine is 54309 so its earylish.

Good luck at NG.com - I'm sure they will know.

Cheers, though I might be putting the converter on hold for a bit though, gotta do a lot of deciding about 'stuff' at the minute, ie my finances. Might not be in a position to start spending the cash on games if I decide that I'm going to study in Wales next year....

A discussion for another time though Smile

@ Mr Vengance: I have one of those POW3 plugs with 10V written on it. My neo is Jap, serial no: 201140.
 
Mr Vengeance
Ah so I'm not alone then Grin Ever try an MVS Super Converter II with it?
