Fear was the wrong word to use. Reasonable caution would be a better term. If you see a sleeping Rottweiler and don't pee on its head, that doesn't necessarily mean you are afraid of the dog. You are just exercising good common sense by not doing that.

As far as the complexity goes, I know of at least one person intimately familiar with the Neo Geo hardware who thinks Krikzz could probably do it and that there must be some other reason. After all, there are people in China making bootleg carts with 2/3rds of the Neo Geo library on them out of recycled integrated circuits that are hand soldered in garages.
However, Razoola has released a way to play Neo Geo CD games off of a PC (even a tiny Raspberry Pi) through the original Neo Geo CD via the 3.2 Universe BIOS. There is no music though.
The Turbo Everdrive is my favorite flash device though. It is really incredible.
Well I'm really not knowledgeable on the hardware. I think krikzz is perfectly open to the idea of working with other talented people as shown by him getting the pcbs made and distributed for the sd2snes. Every time I contact krikzz with a question or suggestion he replies and I really get a sense that he likes working with others. In spite our differences of opinions krikzz never talks down to me and is always friendly enough to tell me if he thinks my idea is a good idea or stupid.
Whoever this guy is if he has the know-how I really think he should just contact krikzz directly and maybe they could work together to get that product made. I would love for a mvs flash device to be made. I already mentioned this to krikzz and his reply is it's too complicated. I don't think krikzz is the sort of person who hides his reasons for doing or not doing things.
I find it strange you think the turbo everdrive to be the best. Personally I'd love to see a version that includes the extra ram needed to recreate the arcade cards, and also have it load the rom into a ram chip instead of flash.
Currently my favourite flash device is the sd2snes, it's truly an all-out flash device that didn't seem to spare any expense.
Thanks to this conversation I started a new topic about favourite flash device(s) here:[Only admins are allowed to see this link]
