Time for another thread of you supply and demand, try to remember what's been lost, try to discover what's been remembered. Just bring up whatever you want of the past and see if your fellow anons can help you piece your shattered, degrading memory together of some long lost game and perhaps point you in the direction of it's location.
I'll request one myself today. The image is from an old freeware game "The General", I believe the website for it has been gone for close to a decade now, and any attempts to find it again have been... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Sup /vr/, I'm making a list of good pre-2000s "space" videogames for PC (not just sci-fi, but titles where space and space travel play a prominent role), could you give me a hand?
So far I've got:
UFO: Enemy Unknown Starflight Star Control Master of Orion The Dig Wing Commander Starfleet Command Captain Blood Rex Nebular Space Quest saga Hard Nova Protostar: War on the frontier Buck Rogers Aliens vs. Predator Ringworld Star Wars X-Wing
>>3427664 imo nothing is worth a 2 hour drive. Ask for pics of the connections on the back. If its RF only those are very common and you can find them easily. I do think it has nice aesthetics. Also you should post in the /crt/ thread next time.
Any oldschool Total War fans on /vr/? Are there any retro games similar to the style of play where you have a Risk style campaign map and a battle map? Turn based would work too. I know about Shadow of the Horned Rat and Dark Omen but I'm hoping for something with campaign map management.
>>3427456 I really liked Edward Grabowski's The Blue & the Gray when I was a small child. It has turn-based campaign map and real-time battles. I haven't played it in over 20 years, and unfortunately most reviews I read now are very unfavorable to it.
I was thinking about the FPGA thing - rather than making a bunch of standalone FPGA consoles, why don't people start to write for PCI-E boards like this? You could program the FPGA with a system (or part of it) and use the board to do all the heavy lifting with no need to go from like 6502 to x86
There would be a program running on your PC.Over the PCI-E, controller input and ROM data would be sent to the FPGA by the program, and it would send back video/audio data which the program would display
perhaps because if you have a non-fossil PC with pci-express port you can emulate.
and ppl just want a clone with SD input that plays the games, a minimalistic and standalone hardware seems more organized.
but i guess this thing plugged into some tiny low profile case with a 90 degree adapter for case width you could have an adaptable "clone" VG that outputs analog/digital, multitaps/wireless controller and can have player4 playing over internet
If you have a modern PC with a PCIe-based mobo, chances are that you can emulate the same systems that would be available via FPGA (which for now only go up to the 16-bit generation because of cost) with the same degree of low-level accuracy and at full speed.
>>3426782 Risky Woods! Just for starters you have to remember which items are harmful to pick up, and that is inconsistant, and the skull powerup, whatever it does, costs you health, and besides item type items picking up the boomerang just screws you, and healing yourself enough to bump you marginally into an extra life can get you killed, and running out of time costs you hugely, and that's just a start...
If you think Sonic 2 is the best, and you thought Sonic 1 was unimpressive (don't worry, typical pleb opinion), then you might like Sonic CD, at least you will surely like the aesthetics, not sure if you'll dig the whole time travel/exploration-based level design, and you will probably hate the spindash in it, but don't forget you can also use the peel out.
Anyone got one of these? Upscales for cheaper than a mini frame meister but limited to mostly cartridge content. You can also save state and back up your roms or saves etc. Nothing crazy but if you have 16 bit and 32 bit cartridges it might be a good catch all for upscaling and backups.
It's limited to 8 bit and 16 bit actually and it's using the exact same emulators you can download on your computer

What's her name, /vr/? That strategy game that never bores you no matter how many times you go back to it, that sweet turn-based action based around producing units and conquering land, all the while getting mad at the AI for fucking cheating.
The price of certain games keep going up and up and up thanks to greedy Ebay sellers. Especially on Nintendo systems, even common games like Super Metroid, Super Mario World and Super Bomberman are continually rising. What can Retro faggots do to stop classic games from becoming un-affordable?
Pic related, a common SNES game that's hilariously overpriced.
>>3426241 >The price of certain games keep going up and up and up thanks to greedy Ebay sellers The problem isn't the sellers, it's the demand. Sellers are only increasing prices based on increased demand, that's just basic business practice.
Not only are retro games receiving more attention/coverage than ever, but there's also speculation from people who are attracted to the rising prices, thinking they're "investing" by building a collection.

Not sure where to go for this but does anybody remember a game from the late 90s where there were teams (red and blue) and you had to protect your base by building workers and soldiers, you mine rocks and raid the other team's base as well. that's about all i can remember. my ex used to compare it to starcraft but it wasn't in space.
So I bought a Famicom at a flea market this morning. The guy who sold it to me gave me a model 1 genesis power supply. I knew I had to have the tv on channel 95 or 96, When I wasn't getting any picture, I thought maybe it was the power supply and I tested it with a regular NES power supply. I am now reading that I should not have done that. My question is, how fucked am I? Did I just fry my Famicom?
>>3425535 yeah its great. Heavily influenced by pen n paper roleplay game Traveller - Expect to do military services as part of your character generation. Then expect fun. One of the best sci fi FPS/RPG/Horror hybrids out there
