Hey y’all, so anyways the Neo Geo cd is my favorite console of all time (right next to the AES!) but I have a question. How do I program for it? What SDK’s are available and how do I run my code on official Neo Geo cd hardware?

That's a lot of questions at once.
What's your programming background? Do you know 68K asm?

If yes, search for Freems tutorial and code. It covers the Neo CD as well.

I use the neobitz sdk but how do I make a disc image that can be burned to a disc for the neo-geo cd? also im kind of good at C programming and Idk anything about 68K ASM.

hi,
you need "mkisofs.exe".
put all necessary files into a folder (e.g. TEST) and create the iso with the command:
mkisofs -iso-level 1 -o test.iso -pad -N -V "TEST" iso.
now copy this ISO file and a matching CUE file (and any CDDA tracks) to the MAME ROM-folder and start with the command:
mame64 neocdz -cdrom roms\test.cue, that's all.

Making an ISO file wink

what's the best sdk for neo geo cd ?
I know there are a lot of sdk for neo geo, but mostly focused on MVS/AES, not CD.
(I know 68k and C pretty well, I made games for atari st, jaguar, megadrive)
