Download and Release Info
The Neo Geo Monitor Test Patterns Tool is developed for Neo Geo AES, MVS and CD and can be downloaded for free.
Neo Geo CD: Burn the following .NRG image file with the software "Nero Burning Rom" with a CD/DVD writer to a blank 650 MB or 700 MB CD-R.
Burn as slow as possible (not faster than 16x). Recommended CD-R brands are Mitsui, Kodak, Philips, Ricoh or Sony.
Please note: CD-RW or DVD discs will not work. Also, the data side of the CD-R needs to be bright and shiny. Don't use discs with dark blue, dark green or black data side surfaces because they can't be read properly by the NGCD laser unit and will cause an "DISK I/O ERROR" (for instance Verbatim's "AZO" CD-Rs with dark blue data side will not work).
