JMaio, maybe the problem is your BIOS, can you search a pack called Neo Geo.Zip.
16 Oct 0:19 2018
in some websites have it, but some times they do not contain everthing that you need, so try to download and check each one.
17 Oct 20:25 2018

Gracias Salsa, para quien aun no entienda: El archivo neogeo.zip debe tener neo-epo.bin y neo-po.bin, y estar en la carpeta de las rom fpalpha. En Retroarch: Menu Rapido>Opciones>Force NeoGeo (Mode)> AES. Es el Modo Consola solo 4 coins
