First open screenmode in Prefs and test all the resolution available with your Monitor.
 
  My Monitor doesn't accept 304 x 224 as well as other SAGA resolution, so I have to use an DIGITAL-VIDEO scaler to see the NeoGeo screen.

If the screen is compatibile then the problem is in the GnGeo which has not been tested on V1200. Sorry.

Thanks - yes screen mode works fine so must be the emulator. :(

Got this working by downloading the latest version from Arti's website rather than using the one on Coffin.  A bit slowly but playable and a very impressive feat.  Gives you an idea what Vampire/RTG games could be like!

I could do with some help as I am getting the pink bar graphical corruption and I'm a bit lost on what to do. I'm using an Icedrake with ApolloOS_R81: the GnGeo files I'm using are from that image.

I have extracted GnGeo_ScriptsAndIcons.lha to the GnGeo folder in Programs/Emulators. (I assume that was the correct thing to do). This results in 2 exe files, gg.exe and gngeo.exe. Which of these is the one to use? Or is it the one linked by Danilo Drago? Does gg.exe need to be renamed to gngeo.exe?

A reply from Danilo earlier in this thread says to apply 'protect GnGeo -S' from shell. How exactly is this done? I tried opening gg.exe from Directory Opus with that argument and get "can't init protect" as a shell output.

Are the game roms not to be run directly from their icons? If not, why are they in the root folder? Or is the idea to have them as project icons that open the respective rom file from the 'roms' folder?

Sorry for all the questions but I'm stuck and the instructions are no help.

Roms go in their dir, games must be launched from icons.

I don't know if GnGeo emulator has been updated on latest ApolloOS 8.1 release as I don't use this system.

Anyway if you use GnGeo on Coffin you must follow the procedure described in first page of this thread.

Or you can wait the release of Coffin r60 where GnGeo will be updated.

Thanks for the advice; that clears things up somewhat. I'll have another try at getting it to work.

Do you use latest Distro 8.1 together with latest V4 Release?
You can find them here:
CLICK HERE 
There should be no color issues with Neogeo.

Thanks for the input, Gunnar. I just updated the core to the latest (8695) and reflashed the latest ApolloOS (R81) but the issue persists.

I'm using both of those but still get the pink graphical glitching. I've tried it with 'script' set on and off, for gg.exe and/or the gngeo (exe?) file, and still get the pink graphical glitching.

Can someone post explicit instructions on the steps required, or a screenshot of the settings that need to be used?

I have retested this for you again, using both latest releases of V4SA and FIREBIRD together with DISTRO 8.1

All games run perfectly and with correct colors.

Something in your setup is not right.
Can it be that you not use the new release or that you replaced the NEOGEO exe?

Hi Black Cornflake,

I also re-tested GnGeo games on ApolloOS on Stand-Alone, FireBird and IceDrake. I cannot reproduce your issue.

Can you please move to Apollo Discord for further support on this?
