Aes box question
TY416
Hello all. Been over 20 years just re bought a neogeo aes. Uninbios and had output and a bunch of games. Wanted to ask about getting replacement boxes and inserts for some loose carts. Do I need shock boxes? Or those clip ones? And the best place to find them.
Any help would be appreciated!

Hi Ty.

Sadly, this isn't a pleasant subject to approach when it comes to AES carts, as there is a great deal of speculation and suspicion surrounding the hobby and cart legitimacy as it is.

As such, your best bet is to either play the titles you have received and, if you like them, replace them with fully boxed copies (if the boxless factor bothers you enough) or just make-do and enjoy the loose carts you have.

No one 'into', sadly, is willing to scan and provide original AES artwork to protect the hobby from potential reproductions/counterfeits leaking into the market.

IF... any of the loose carts are high value carts though (i.e. Metal Slugs etc), chances are, you can find someone online, somewhere, who can provide you with professionally finished inserts and manuals etc. The boxes, however, you will have to source manually.

Hi TY416. I have very occasionally seen a few empty AES cases on ebay but they are pretty rare and I'm not aware of anyone making replacement cases. I guess you could use MVS shock boxes and inserts from the Southtown Homebrew website but it would look a bit strange since AES and MVS carts are a different size. If having unboxed carts does bother you then I would just replace them with boxed games, as Ninja suggested, and sell off the loose carts.

There are a small number of AES inserts in the download section which could be printed out if anyone does need a replacement.

Ok thanks again

Southtown Homebrew is the place to be. Shockboxes and inserts are of great quality. The standard shockboxes are perfect suitable for MVS and AES games.
