>>3584005 In case you can't, or don't want to do an audio recording, is your laser giving a high-pitched whining sound, or does it sound like it's grinding rocks? If the latter, your laser is fucked. If you have the technical skills to replace it, lasers cost 5$ on AliExpress or 10-15$ on eBay if you don't want to wait 1-2 months for delivery.
My personal experience with the GBC is that it is the least rewarding gameboy to mod. The pocket is hardest to work with but this is a close second. Backlighting it sucks so much fucking power, more so than any other model. It almost always causes issues with the sound output (speaker and headphone jack) either or humming, buzzing, or a higher noise floor than normal. The sound itself on an unmodded GBC is a somewhat thin unless you are willing to do the bassboost / rca out mod. I really only use the DMG, and mostly... Comment too long.

>>3583482 "Steal". Rareware had a boner for stock sound libraries. The Perfect Dark logo sound is the same one used in the Castlevania 64 main menu, for example. They use the most generic female scream in videogames for Cassanda's death in Perfect Dark. Diddy Kong Racing used that generic "children laughing" clip.
It's a Rareware thing that's in basically all their games, the composers like to throw in all kinds of references - this one was almost certainly intentional. There's one track in Conker that samples like three Tekken 3 tracks just for the hell of it.
I'll just be blunt about it. I have at least a few thousand dollars worth of old games I've been accumulating since the early-mid 2000s. But I don't have anywhere near a "complete collection" for any console, I'm missing lots of classics (especially pricey obscure ones), and with the huge retro price inflation it makes a lot of sense to just sell my collection off, make a profit and switch to flashcarts (after all, there's no point in having a collection if you're just going to use a flashcart).
But I can't.

>>3583390 >These games have a special meaning to me. I've had some of them for most of my life and they're always fun to turn on and let the memories flow back. Remembering where I bought them, when I first beat them, all that stuff. I can't bring myself to just get rid of them.
So, you keep them for memories/nostalgia. You just said it yourself. So keep them. No one forces you to play either carts or ROMs; there's no "law" that forces you to choose just one.... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Can we have a thread discussing this seeing how its a remake of a retro game via a romhack of another retro game?
Personally I'm pretty excited for it. Even for his "original" content. Usually that would terrify me, but this guy seems to understand what made both Link's Awakening as well as the 64 Zelda games so atmospheric so I have hopes he knows what he's doing.
Kind of wonder why this wasn't made as a romhack of Majora's Mask though. Seems like still able to do a hell of a lot more than expected with the OOT rom though.
Hey guys who's up for a Rodger Ramrod thread? I want to know if anyone out there has heard of the controversy surrounding this game. The lead and only artist Frank Stringini has been on an active campaign to destroy any and all mentions of this game. Going to lengths such as hunting down users and slapping them with legal suits. Right now we don't know what his crusade is about. Possible legal trouble? Black mail? Pranks? who knows. maybe someone is trying to buy up the ramrod IP. for a well deserved sequel
The whole game is up for grabs on several sites to... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
What game is this??? I played it a long ass time ago, and a couple year ago when my internet was out for a few weeks.. You start off in some forest chasing after a boar or something with your friend, and once you get it cornered, you fight it and hear a noise coming from town. once you get back to town, you find everyone you knew was dead your family included. you are then advised to seek out your uncle or some wizard guy on the outskirts of the region in some hidden place.
It has 2d graphics and a very jrpg theme.
Anyone know what game i am thinking of... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
I've played a bunch of Nemesis lately, 1CCed difficulty 1, working on difficulty 2 (last two stages are pretty hard). It's alright but it has a couple aspects I don't care for much. One is that you can only have a few shots on screen at once (seems to be three) like old arcade games, so it can sometimes feel random whether you'll be able to shoot at something in front of you or have to wait for a shot to be ready. The other is it's a slow-moving game (to deal with the GB screen, presumably) but to still make it challenging (on difficulty 2 anyway)... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>3582130 I know that feeling, I can't remember the level name but the water one where you empty out this big room of water and its got these high up bridges, i remember it looking really stunning but then when I went back to it, theres this crazy clipping distance so you can't even see the other side of the room. I don't even remember it being like this!!!!
I've never understood this criticism. Not all girls with blonde hair are the exact fucking same. Tiny is a different character with a different personality. Look at the flower on her, look at her hat, how she sounds. She is a super cute girly girl. Dixie's character isn't an overload of cuteness. Tiny fits exactly with what they were trying to do in DK64. Maybe it started out being for Dixie but then they realized they would have to completely change Dixie and this flower girl was better.
>Also do the originals save your data to a new folder in the documents folder? I tried to find ways to change but couldn't find any. They save to the game's directory for me, in a folder named "Saves".
Started playing Final Fantasy 2/4. How long does it take for the game to become challenging? I'm still at the very beginning (the little girl just officially joined my party) but battles are just fucking annoyingly slow even on the fastest speed.
Enemies aren't dealing shit for damage (a bunch of them hit for 1 point!) and it's just slow and aggravating. But, it's the beginning of the game, so I wouldn't be surprised if it's just the very very early game that's so easy it's boring.
So how long does it take for the game... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
The remake of 4 is more challenging than the original 4 but the original gets hard about 70% of the way through and then get's easy as fuck for the rest of the game if you don't run away from any fights.
Never, really. You never have to grind, because any roadblocks or tougher dungeons can be cleared if you just play smart, though.
The challenge in most jRPGs is in preparation for the long, grueling dungeons where you might get buttfucked and will be forced to start from a saving point. And figuring out the boss patterns and weaknesses. Some people grind, some people learn how to use available resources well. Juggling the available items for occasions, using consumables and getting summons for Rydia will deterine your success.
It's a comfy adventure, mostly,... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
Title screen in Silent Hill is differnet in English vs. Japanese versions. Japanese has a title screen very similar to SH2. In English however, it's a scene of something, what looks like outside in the fog of the city. Why they changed that is beyond me. Perhaps they felt the title was too bland.
Retro games with romhacks that are better than the original game. Not for romhacks that completely change the game like Super Metroid Redesign. But more so for romhacks that fix faults of the original like Simon's Quest Redaction.
Pic related as the romhack keeps the bugfixes and improved sprites of the american version, but reverts the censorship on the tiddies.
>>3580942 Might and Magic 6 is my favorite but it's a very different take on the genre. Eye of the Beholder 2 is good if you don't mind lots of teleporting and pressure plate puzzles. Are you looking for real-time ones like Dungeon Master or turn-based like Wizardry? If turn-based, check out Wizardry 6 or Might and Magic 3.
I have a 3ds xl currently but I would rather get a device that would let me put emulators on it without having to hack it.
So far I've been looking at the Nvidia shield primarily but looked at a few other android gaming tablets or devices. I was impressed by the nvidia shield for being a full controller which I like while also being able to run emulators up to the gamecube and possibly wii generation. Unfortunately it's been discontinued and I'm guessing there's not much out there on the market that can compete with it. I heard rumors there might be a second generation coming out in november or december but nothing has really been confirmed yet.
Are there any other options I don't know about? Also I wasn't sure if I should post this in games or inspect your gadget so if I need to move it it'll be fine.
>>3580915 I own both the Nvidia Shield Portable and Tablet (non K1) and would say if you want a system just to play emulation or Android games and nothing else, then they're a fine handheld or tablet. Just remember, they're either discontinued (portable) or still selling it as of now if you go to the tablet. Hell, if you like the Nvidia Shield stuff, I would go get the tablet K1 as it will be around $200 right now or less new and with a controller, it's a nice portable emulation tablet. Also, the used market for the portable is a bit too high and you better spend it on the tablet with what they're asking for.
Still, if you already own a Android phone which have a decent specs today, just get a Bluetooth controller and you should be okay and much more cheaper. The rumor of Nvidia is going to make a 2nd gen portable isn't going to happen as they're putting their efforts right now on the new Nintendo hardware. I think this is the same for the tablet.
For new handheld to look at, the Chinese GDP handheld is something to look at but at the price they're asking for, I will wait and see impression about it for the people who buy it.
>>3580827 >Is it true that they aren't actually 2D sprites, but basic polygons made to resemble them? Yeah. Two triangles to form a square and then textured with the image data. You can kind of see it if you turn on wireframes.
There are actually more than you'd think. N64 has probably one of the best 2D-animated games from that era, Wonder Project J2, and it was also an early game from 96. Pic is from Rakuga Kids, that's the sprite animation sheet for just 1 of the characters.

>>3580757 My ex fucking loved this game so I was happy to trade it away in '99 after we broke up but then its value rose considerably and I felt I should try to pick up another copy but I also felt weird like I was being nostalgic for her but then I was checking out a retro budget bundle for completeness and one of the games I wasn't even interested in had been swapped for a copy. Not bad for five bucks.

Take a picture of the front, back, and the PCB. Include a photo of it working. Clean the pins thoroughly before selling to avoid someone getting it and claiming that it isn't working when all they'd have to do is clean the pins.
If they are sought after items, I'd think you'd do well to list as an open auction unless you have a definite amount you want out of them. If any of them aren't as hot or if you have a set price that you want, do BIN with Best Offer option.
