[2. INTRODUCTION] [JUMP2.0]

What in the world is this FAQ you ask?  Well, to put it simply, it's a central 
resource for all the information about the NeoGeo Online Collection for PS2.  
This series is currently (and probably always will be) only available in Japan.

Here's a breakdown of what you can find in the FAQ:
- Game Information
- Packaging Information
- Release Date
- Extras Included
- Codes and Secrets
- Problems and Issues
- Overall Thoughts

Here's what you WON'T find in this FAQ:
- Movelists
- How to Boot your IMPORT game
- Color Edit Recipes

Lastly, just for posterity sake, I will include some of the redone games that 
aren't included in the collection.  For one reason or another however (generally
the complete rework of the original game), these games were not included in the 
collection.  I'm including them here because well, I think they fit in with the 
collection  or it's also possible it's just my neuroses kicking in.

This FAQ does assume you understand the very basic workings of SNK Playmore 
games as well as the games in these collections.  Unless otherwise noted, I'm 
not going to include how to select 2P colors, etc etc.  You've been warned.

NOTE: If you didn't notice, I've added JUMP keys so you can find the particular 
section you're looking for much faster.  Enjoy!

------------------------------------------------------------------------

[3. THE COLLECTION] [JUMP3.0]

The NEOGEO Online Collection is comprised of several volumes  each being a 
particular game or series of games.  Some of these volumes even included limited

volumes and their full titles:

Samurai Spirits is rumored (with confirmation from SNKP) to be coming to the 
collection as well.  Who knows what numbers they will get though.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[4. VOLUME 1: GAROU MARK OF THE WOLVES] [JUMP4.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 1: GAROU Mark of the Wolves 
Release Date: 06/30/05
Rating: CERO12

Limited Edition: YES
- Included LIGHT RED GAROU style NEOGEO Joystick2 (Only 3,000 made)

Package Information:

Geese Howard. Also has the logo for the game. (Back) Primarily information about
the game. (Spine Color) RED.
- No Info on LE at this time.

Games Included: GAROU Mark of the Wolves.

Color Edits: NO

Arrange Music: YES (Listed as Original or NEOGEO, ie Arranged or Original 
respectively)

Extras Included:

or left of Terry or Rock respectively.
- Unlock a character's ending artwork by completing Arcade mode with that 
character.
- Unlock ALL artwork by completing Survival with any character (beat all 
characters in the game at least once.)

Problems and Issues:
None  a truly FLAWLESS port of the original game without the sound issues that 
plagued the Dreamcast Release.

Overall Thoughts:
For the initial release in the series, this game was absolutely stunning and it 
was welcomed into many a gamers' collection with open arms.  Since the Dreamcast
rendition of the game had various sound sync errors and frame problems, a 
perfect port was expected when this Volume was announced.  SNK Playmore did not 
disappoint.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[5. VOLUME 2: BAKUMATSUROMAN GEKKA NO KENSHI] [JUMP5.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 2: Bakumatsuroman Gekka no Kenshi 
Release Date: 01/12/06
Other Names: Last Blade 2-in-1, Bakumatsu Roman Gekka no Kenshi 1*2
Rating: CERO12

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) A collage of various 'good' characters in the series along with logos 
for each of the two games in the collection. (Back) Less information than Garou 
so we see some more character art. (Spine Color) RED.

Games Included: Bakumatsuroman Gekka no Kenshi (Last Blade), Bakumatsuroman dai 
ni maku Gekka no Kenshi (Last Blade 2).

Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Game includes all playable Secret Characters from Home Versions.
- First game in Collection to use what is now the standard Start Screen and 
Options.
- First game in Collection to use Color Edits.
- Both games support a myriad of languages.

Secrets:

Bakumatsuroman Gekka no Kenshi (Last Blade)
- Third Outfit: Press START when choosing character
- Play as Musashi: Press Cx6, Bx3, Cx4 while highlighting any character.  This 
code must be done quickly.  He should appear on the select screen.

Bakumatsuroman dai ni maku Gekka no Kenshi (Last Blade 2)
- Play as Original Kaede: Highlight Kaede and press Cx9, Bx1, Cx4.  The code is 
confirmed by a sound.  Select Kaede without moving off his portrait.
- Play as Koryu: Highlight Kaede and press Cx10, Bx5, Cx4.  The code is 
confirmed by a sound.  Select Kaede without moving off his portrait.  Koryu will
replace Kaede.
- Akari's Mirror Mode: Highlight Akari and press Cx8, Bx9, Cx1. The code is 
confirmed by a sound.  Select Akari without moving off her portrait.  You will 
assume the form of your opponent in every match.
- Shingen's Joke Fight Intro: Highlight Shingen and press Cx5, Bx10, Cx2.  The 
code is confirmed by a sound.  Select Shingen without moving off his portrait.
- Select EX Mode: Select your character as normal.  When at the Mode selection 
screen, while on SPEED, press Cx6, move to POWER, press Bx3, move to SPEED, 
press Cx4.  EX should replace both SPEED and POWER.  You can no longer select 
SPEED or POWER after entering this code until you select a new character.


Problems and Issues:
There has been reports (which I can confirm) that the sound on this collection 
seems somewhat muffled.  Word has it that there are some frames of animation 
missing but I haven't noticed any.  Any frames missing DO NOT affect gameplay 
whatsoever, so that's a moot point.  Also, the sound may seem muffled because 
the music/sfx are split into stereo.  The originals did not have this ability.  
There is also a setting within the main menu that allows you to adjust either 
the music or the sfx volume.

Overall Thoughts:
As a second release, we saw a variety of new additions to the structure of the 
collections.  While the game suffered slightly by having 'muffled' sound, I 
don't think this outweighs what a wonderful addition to a person's library this 
is.  This volume is revered as the 'Bastard' of the collection and while it may 
be the most lacking, it did introduce a lot of ideas and set up the fans to 
expect a lot of wonderful things in the future.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[6. VOLUME 3: THE KING OF FIGHTERS OROCHI COLLECTION] [JUMP6.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 3: The King of Fighters Orochi 
Collection 
Release Date: 04/20/06
Rating: CERO12

Limited Edition: YES
- Included DARK BROWN Kusanagi style NEOGEO Joystick2

Package Information:
- Regular: (Front) Kyo and friends stand amongst a flame while Orochi is poised 
at the bottom with red eyes. (Back) Primarily information about the game and 
character art, BUT!!! WE GET SCREENSHOTS for the first time. (Spine Color) RED.
- No Info on LE at this time.

Games Included: The King of Fighters '95, The King of Fighters '96, The King of 
Fighters '97.

Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Game includes playable Boss Characters not found in any other version. 
- KOF'96 and KOF'97 include language options.  KOF'95 does not.

Secrets:
- All secret characters are already present on the select screen.
- To select Kyo'94, hold START while selecting Kyo in KOF'97.

Problems and Issues:
I haven't noticed any problems with this rendition of these games.  The music 
cut-off in KOF96 still happens every now and then, but that was in the original,
so I'm not gonna dock them for that.

Overall Thoughts:
After GAROU, this was the most anticipated release in the series.  Outside the 
NEOGEO consoles, these games NEVER got a truly faithful port.  The closest was 
the Saturn ports which even lacked somewhat and were plagued by load times 
galore.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[7. VOLUME 4: RYUUKO NO KEN TEN-CHI-JIN] [JUMP7.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 4: Ryuuko no Ken Ten-Chi-Jin 
Release Date: 05/11/06
Other Names: Art of Fighting Collection
Rating: CERO12

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) Ryo and Robert appear prepared to due battle with an array of combatants
shown behind them. (Back) Primarily information about the game and character art
along with two screenshots. (Spine Color) RED.

Games Included: Ryuuko no Ken, Ryuuko no Ken 2, Art of Fighting: Ryuuko no Ken 
Gaiden.

Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- All games include language options.  These games have the least options to 
date of any collection game.

Secrets:
- All secret characters are unlocked.  HOWEVER, we were denied Young Geese.  
Mr.Big and Mr.Karate can only be used in VS mode for Ryuuko no Ken.
- Birthday codes still apply using your PS2 internal clock for Ryuuko 3.

Problems and Issues:
NCSX exclaims there is a frame drop problem within Ryuuko 1 and 2.  I personally
don't see it, but I could be looking in the wrong places.  The sound is dead on 
however and Ryuuko 3 is the best conversion out of the three.  The first two 
games still retain their hellish difficulty.  Good luck!

Overall Thoughts:
This is probably the most overlooked of the collection.  Even I recall having a 
bad taste in my mouth from yesteryear about the Ryuuko games.  Ryuuko 1 and 2 
definitely remind me of this.  The shining star in this collection is Ryuuko 3 
with its crisp graphics and sound.  It's an amazing game and I'm absolutely 
ashamed that I didn't play it before.  If you're looking for an excellent game 
that you missed years ago, Ryuuko 3 is your answer!

[8. VOLUME 5: GAROU DENSETSU BATTLE ARCHIVE 1] [JUMP8.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 5: Garou Densetsu Battle Archive 1 
Release Date: 07/20/06
Other Names: Fatal Fury Collection
Rating: CERO B

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) Terry Bogard's back faces the viewer while shadows of the villains 
litter his surroundings. (Back) Primarily information about the game and 
character art along with a screenshot from each game. (Spine Color) RED.

Games Included: Garou Densetsu, Garou Densetsu 2, Garou Densetsu Special, Garou 
Densetsu 3: Road to Final Victory.

Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Only Garou Densetsu 3 includes language options.  These games include menus 
that rival the Ryuuko no Ken Collection for simplicity.

Secrets:
- All secret characters are already unlocked in Garou Densetsu 1-Special.  Ryo 
can be selected only in VS matches on Garou Densetsu Special.
- A code must be entered after every booting of Garou 3 in order to enable 
Yamazaki and the Jin Twins.  At the character select screen, highlight the 
following characters and press B once on each character  Terry, Hon-Fu, Mai, 
Geese, Bob, Sokaku, Joe, and lastly Blue Mary.  Each time, you should hear a 
chime and after Mary, the screen will fade out and return with the Jin twins and
Yamazaki selectable.

Problems and Issues:
NCSX exclaims there is a hollow sound issue in Garou Densetsu.  I don't have a 
cart to check it against, so um...I dunno.  All the other games are dead-on from
what I can tell.

Overall Thoughts:
The only Garou collection better than this is Volume 6 which covers the Real 
Bout series.  Everything you loved about the original four games is in this 
collection and it was one of my personal favorites in the series.  Who can 
forget the introduction of Yamazaki to the world?

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[9. VOLUME 6: GAROU DENSETSU BATTLE ARCHIVE 2] [JUMP9.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 6: Garou Densetsu Battle Archive 2
Release Date: 02/22/07
Other Names: Real Bout Fatal Fury Collection
Rating: CERO B

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) Terry Bogard tosses his cap towards you while he's surrounded by all his
friends. (Back) Primarily information about the game and character art along 
with a screenshot from each game.  Alfred is hiding out. (Spine Color) BLUE.

Games Included: Real Bout Garou Densetsu, Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special, Real
Bout Garou Densetsu 2.
 
Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- First game in collection to have a BLUE spine.
- Each game features an in-game movelist on the pause menu.
- First game to include a practice mode (separate from actual games.)
- All the games include language options and the menus, though somewhat scarce, 
look more modern and fit each game better.

Secrets:

Real Bout Garou Densetsu Special:
- Play as Geese and EX Characters: Let the demo run until it reaches the Ranking
Screen.  At this screen, do a counter clockwise 360 motion starting at RIGHT.  
Follow this by holding DOWN-RIGHT and pressing A, B, C.  Geese himself will 
confirm the code by saying "Come On."  This enables Nightmare Geese to be 
selected as well as the EX characters.  To select an EX character, highlight 
Tung, Mary, Billy, or Andy and hold B+C while selecting them.  This code can be 
saved.
- Fight Nightmare Geese: Complete the game while never getting below an A 
ranking.  You must also get at least 3 SSS rankings, 2 AAA rankings, and earn at
least 1,000,000 points.  Nightmare Geese will challenge you.  Also, if you beat 
Geese, you'll be awarded with the EX characters and Geese being unlocked from 
the get-go instead of having to do the code each time.  There are also reports 
that the requirements to fight Geese are somewhat easier in this collection.  I 
personally haven't tried it myself.

Real Bout Garou Densetsu 2:
- Play as Alfred: Highlight any character and hold B+C and select a character.  
The portrait will change to the hidden boss of the game, Alfred.
- Fight Alfred: Beat Geese or Krauser without losing a single round in all 
matches and finishing with either 7+ S-Power finishes or 5+ P-Power Finishes.

Problems and Issues:
Not a single problem that I can tell.  Mad props to SNKP.

Overall Thoughts:
This volume finishes up the Garou Densetsu series so that all of the Garou games
can be played in their glory on your PS2.  This volume also boasts some of the 
best gameplay found in an SNK fighter.  If you haven't played Real Bout before, 
now is your time and you should be on this volume like white on rice.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[10. VOLUME 7: THE KING OF FIGHTERS NESTS COLLECTION] [JUMP10.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 7: The King of Fighter's Nests 
Collection
Release Date: 04/18/07
Rating: CERO B

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) K' is surrounded by friends and enemies.  Most notable thing is the rows
of Kyo clones going away from Zero and Krizalid. (Back) A mass of information 
like previous volumes along with art from all three titles included in the 
volume.  Two screen shots. (Spine Color) BLUE.

Games Included: The King of Fighters '99, The King of Fighters 2000 (both 
NeoGeo Original and Dreamcast), The King of Fighters 2001 (both NeoGeo Original 
and Dreamcast), The King of Fighters '99 Evolution (Dreamcast.) 
 
Color Edits: YES and NO
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.
- Not valid in NEOGEO modes of games.

Arrange Music: YES and NO
- Not valid in NEOGEO modes of games.

Extras Included:
- Each game features an in-game movelist on the pause menu for Dreamcast 
versions of games.
- Dreamcast and NEOGEO versions include a practice mode.
- No movelist for NEOGEO versions.
- 2000 DC includes gallery puzzle mode!
- 2001 DC includes the puzzle mode!

Secrets:
- Everything is unlocked from the get-go.  Thanks SNK Playmore!!  Puzzle are not
completed in the 2000 puzzle mode  however, there are no benefits for 
completing them...I think.

Problems and Issues:  DC versions suffer from slightly muffled voices.  There is
no controller edit for NEOGEO mode.  The color edits don't work on NEOGEO mode 
(this is my biggest gripe...lol.)  I would have loved to edit my striker colors 
too.  The controls are a bit stiff.  I usually don't say this about games but 
these are amazingly stiff.  If you don't perform a move the way the game 'likes'
it, it won't come out properly.  This is especially annoying with double quarter
circles ending up as dragon punch motions.  Go figure.

Overall Thoughts:  I can't say I wasn't somewhat upset with the choice of the 
Dreamcast versions of 2000/2001.  While I believe it was a choice to stay as 
close to the originals and to balance online play, I would have liked the extra 
backgrounds and other goodies that didn't affect gameplay.  Overall however, I'm
very pleased with this collection since one of my favorite games now has color 
edits (yes, I enjoy 2001 a lot...shrug.)  I still wish the NEOGEO versions would
have been cleaned up more and the choice to play the originals would have been 
just as important as the Dreamcast updates.  Beggars can't be choosers though I 
suppose.

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[11. VOLUME 8: FU'UN SUPER COMBO] [JUMP11.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 8: Fu'un Super Combo
Release Date: 06/21/07
Rating: CERO B

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) Hayate is flying downward towards Shishioh. (Back) Two screen shots 
and a some character art.  Mostly info for online and the game like previous 
volumes. (Spine Color) BLUE.

Games Included: Fu'un Mokushiroku (Savage Reign), Fu'un: Super Tag Battle 
(Kizuna Encounter.)
 
Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Each game features an in-game movelist on the pause menu.
- Main Menu includes a practice mode (separate from actual games.)
- Both games have language options which can be saved.

Secrets:

Fu'un Mokushiroku:
- Play as Shin-Shishioh: Enter a TWO player game.  After doing so, 
Shin-Shishioh can be selected by highlighting Shishioh and pressing down 10 
times.  Press A or B to select your color.  Basically, just tap down a 
ridiculous number of times to select him.  There is no indicator.  It's a waste
of an addition if you ask me since I'd sooner want to smash the computer than 
use a cheap character on a person.

Fu'un: Super Tag Battle:
- Play as Shin-Shishioh: Highlight Shishioh and press up to change to Shin-
Shishioh.
- Play as Jyazu: Highlight Gozu and press up to change to Jyazu.

Problems and Issues: Really, I haven't experienced any problems with these 
translations.  Like many of the past volumes, they are simply emulated 
versions of the games made to work with the basic layout  SO, nothing to 
complain about.  Only other complaint here is Versus Mode only 
characters...AGAIN.  These bother the hell out of me. 

Overall Thoughts:
While not as jam packed as some of the older volumes, it does deliver exactly 
what it states to have  both Fu'un games perfectly emulated available for 
online play and with color edits, the AST, etc. This is the first time either 
games have come to a home console (outside of the AES of course.) The AST 
freaking rocks.  The somewhat lacking soundtrack is made better exponentially 
with impressive CD quality non-midi music. Not everyone will enjoy the Fu'un 
games and while many believe that Mokushiroku is sub-par at best, it's still 
much more playable than Ryuuko no Ken 1 and 2. Super Tag Battle is amazing 
except for one thing: the lack of characters.  Carol and Nicola should have 
been ported over from the first game to fill out the character roster, but I 
can't really complain about such trivial things.  Had SNKP wanted to go the 
extra mile and included them in this home version, I wouldn't have 
complained.  Heh.  

------------------------------------------------------------------------
[12. VOLUME 9 (RESERVED)] [JUMP12.0]

Game Name: NEOGEO Online Collection Volume 9: World Heroes Gorgeous
Release Date: 10/18/2007
Rating: CERO B

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information: 
(Front) Everyone from World Heroes fame graces the cover in a cutesy anime 
fashion that is somewhat sickening.  Rasputin looks like he's been smelling 
roses all day and is friends with the butterflies. (Back)  A single screenshot 
for each game and more appropriate artwork.  Like most of the other volumes, 
there is plenty of text consuming the entire backside of the package. (Spine 
Color) BLUE.

Games Included: World Heroes, World Heroes 2, World Heroes 2 JET, World Heroes 
Perfect.
 
Color Edits: YES
- Hold SELECT while choosing correlating color edit.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Each game features an in-game movelist on the pause menu.
- Main Menu includes a practice mode (separate from actual games.)

Secrets:
There aren't really any secrets per se in this volume as Neo-Dio and Goku are 
already selectable by default in WHP.  My only gripe is that Zeus isn't 
playable.  In other words, everyone you get to play as you get up front  all 
the color edits reflect this.

Problems and Issues:
I haven't noticed any real emulation problems etc etc.  As time goes by and 
with each release, it seems as though SNKP has perfected the emulation of the 
games.  Kudos to them.  Again, I'm upset about Zeus...but oh well.

Overall Thoughts:
For those of us who actually enjoyed World Heroes back in the day, this is a god
send.  World Heroes was forgotten about under old Street Fighter II Rainbow 
Edition carts while its brothers Fatal Fury and KoF lived on in infamy.  I'm 
finally glad to have a chance to play World Heroes and its sequels without 
having to be laughed at by local arcade goers (damn that peer pressure!)  My 
only complaint is the lack of English language option and Zeus being computer 
only.  Also, we non-Japanese are pooped upon again by lacking the English 
option, but this move was probably made because WHG is coming to the states as 
World Heroes Anthology.  That's so lackluster compared to GORGEOUS! Like most 
of the volumes, this is a jewel and if you're looking to go retro with something
that influenced the games of today with some flair for being different, by all
means grab this  either version!  

------------------------------------------------------------------------

[14. NON-COLLECTION GAMES] [JUMP14.0]

Game Name: The King of Fighters '94: Re-Bout
Release Date: 12/28/04
Rating: CERO12

Limited Edition: YES
- Included KOF Anniversary Keychain and NEOGEO PAD2.

Package Information:
(Front) Kyo wielding fire while photos of entrants float around. (Back) Saisyu 
thinks while a mess-load of info is presented. (Spine Color) BLACK.
LE controller boxed separately.  Both versions include a miniature version of 
Gamest Mook Vol. 197.

Arrange Music: YES

Extras Included:
- Includes NEW Animated opening movie.
- Completely redone graphics, etc.
- Saisyu and Rugal are selectable in Re-Bout only.

Secrets:
- None

Problems and Issues:  The NEOGEO mode version is rather close to perfect.  Re-
Bout mode still features some brokenness despite efforts to clean up gameplay 
and even things out by the programmers.

Overall Thoughts:
If you are a KoF nut, you must have this in your collection.  This game is an 
excellent way to honor the birth of one of the greatest fighting game franchises
ever.

Game Name: Twinkle Star Sprites: Le Petite Princess
Release Date: 07/28/05
Rating: CEROALL

Limited Edition: NO

Package Information:
(Front) Time stands cute and ready as ever to do battle in the TSS world.  She 
is surrounded by stars that house the faces of other characters. (Back) It's 
PINK with madness and lots of info. (Spine Color) WHITE.
Early copies came with a Manga to explain what was happening in the game, etc.  
Like the game, it too is super cute.

Games Included: Twinkle Star Sprites: Le Petite Princess, Twinkle Star Sprites.
 
Color Edits: NO

Arrange Music: NO

Extras Included:
- Basically a brand new TSS game.

Secrets:
- Unlock Load Ran: Complete Story Mode

the game to unlock her.
- Saturn Opening FMV in Graphic Gallery: Complete Story mode with Load Ran.
- Twinkle Star Sprites: To play the original Twinkle Star Sprites, beat the game
with all three hidden characters.  Doing so will unlock the original AES version
of TSS.

Problems and Issues:  The NEOGEO mode version is rather close to perfect.  The 
rest is brand new.

Overall Thoughts:
You may feel somewhat queer owning this, but it's a mighty fine game with tons 
of strategy and skill.  Plus it comes with the original TSS!!!
