Hello colleagues, we continue with the batch of post about games in <«FromLinux.
I am going to tell you about an emulator to play games of NeoGeor, such as the Metal Slug saga. It could be said that I am a fan of the saga and seeing the post of KZKG ^ Gaara About old games, I said "Why not?"
The same is GnGeo and its interface XGnGeo. It's pretty straightforward and lightweight, it ran all the roms I tried, however my only intention was to play Metal Slug.
To install it in ArchLinux we only need to install it through YAOURT.
yaourt -S xgngeo
From there, the correct version of GNGEO will also be compiled.
Simple enough right?
And well, in the end I was able to play:
The correct bios to emulate most games.
How to charge the Bios?
If this is the first time the application is running by default, the window to select the BIOS location will open: You must unzip the .tar.gz file, you will have a «neogeo» folder that you must choose. The rest should stay the same.
Where do I get games (ROM)?
Well, we can visit some websites like
Among the others you mentioned KZKG ^ Gaara in his post about Zsnes.
I hope you liked it.
