The NGH number is the game's unique identifier used for saves and highscores and probably other things. It is always stored in the 68k program header in BCD format at address $108. Some later unlicenced games and bootlegs use a hex value.

See Category:Games

How can we get homebrew numbers organised ? Can this page be used as a reference for new numbers ?


Used ranges

  • 0001~0099
  • 0100~0199 (Korean releases, see below)
  • 0200~0272


Range 100~199 partially used by official Korean NeoGeo releases

  • 0122: Pae Wang Jeon Seol (Samurai Shodown IV)
  • 0123: Quiz Daisousa Sen
  • 0124: Real Bout Fatal Fury Special
  • 0134: The Last Soldier (Last Blade)
  • 0140: Real Bout Fatal Fury 2
  • 0151: The King of Fighters 99 (NEO-SMA protected version)
  • 0152: The King of Fighters 99
  • 0163: Saulabi Spirits (Samurai Shodown II)
  • 0187: Fighters Swords (Samurai Shodown III)
  • 0195: Real Bout Fatal Fury
  • 0196: Art of Fighting 3

While some of this range will be vacant, looking at the above, at minimum there is a very good chance of a Korean version of 'Last Blade 2' using NGH 0143.

  • 0273~0299
