Disclaimer
==========
This program requires a system rom (bios) from the original Neogeo CD console to
function.  This code is copyrighted and therefore you are not entitled to a 
copy unless you own an original Neogeo CD console.

Do not enquire where to find this file.  Suffice to say that it should be called
neocd.bin and should be 512kb in size.
 
Only original ISO9660 format neogeo cd's are able to be used. Do not request bin/cue 
or iso/mp3 support in future builds. NeoCD/SDLx was not ported to promote the spread
of "warez". As such I will ignore any such requests

NEOCD IS FREE, SOURCE CODE IS FREE. SELLING IS NOT ALLOWED.
YOU CANNOT PROVIDE NEOCD AND NEOGEO GAME SOFTWARE ON THE SAME PHYSICAL MEDIUM.
 
YOU CAN REUSE SOURCE CODE AND TECHNICAL KNOWLEDGE AS LONG AS IT IS NOT FOR 
COMMERCIAL PURPOSES.




Usage
=====
Unpack all the files from the archive to a directory.  Ensure the neocd bios is 
called "neocd.bin" and add it to the bios directory (it should not be compressed
- it will be 512kb in size).

Insert a neogeo cd into your dvd drive .

Run the neocd exectuable.

If all goes well NeoCD/SDLx should detect the cd drive that the cd is in and run 
the game.
