Good afternoon /vr/, I have a Tribes 2 (Tribes Next) server up right now, since it was requested by a few people on the last thread I made (though it's not quite "retro"). And the plan is to cycle retro games servers for days of the weeks (maybe cover the weekend with one game, whatever most popular).
Right now I can host and join: Any idTech1 game (Hexen, Heretic, Doom, mods, whatever) Unreal Tribes 2 (Using Tribes Next patch) Noone Lives Forever (though I can't seem to find a command line option to connect through IP, and the server list is ded, can connect through hamachi or whatever) Hexen 2 (through hamachi or what-not - doesn't seem to like connecting through a forwarded port for some reason, still trying to fix this) Red Faction (using Pure Faction patch)
Open to suggestions. If auto cycling them per day gets too ADD maybe I'll switch to cycling them out per week or just on request.
Before I go through the trouble of finding other games to set up I kinda wanna see how this performs/if there's any demand for this sort of thing. So if anyone has Tribes (2) Next, the server name is VRTHUMPERS. And if you don't have it it's free, so go get it. http://www.tribesnext.com/
Lemme know your ping and location so I have an idea if my connection is suitable. It's just CTF on the default map cycle, 32 players I think...
My server room actually looks a lot less like pic related and a lot more like my living room with an XPS 630 tucked behind my couch.

Per week sounds like the best cause it gives everyone a chance to hop in at some point. There's nothing worse than finding out you were like an hour late to play multiplayer in a game you love with people here .
>>2850929 Thanks for the offer. Really just any suggestions or feedback would be helpful. My upload speed is just north of 2MB, so it should be pretty playable for anyone on the west coast, but hopefully suitable to east coasters too. Not sure yet, since this is my first venture into hosting for the most part.
A friend suggested Thievery UT, so I think I'm going to go for that, and maybe host a UT99 server with some of my dads old maps from ~1999/2000 thrown in the mix... Though Speck has a well liked server he posts around on 4chain, so I'd be competing.
>There's nothing worse than finding out you were like an hour late to play multiplayer in a game you love with people here Fair point. I'll probably do that then, instead. I'd like to throw the necessary files on mediafire or something, but the legality of that is pretty shaky so I might just suggest some places to look and include basic directions to get the games to run (though I think most people on /vr/ could handle it themselves/it's mostly self explanatory)
Should I play this? Does it fix the silly censorship the NES version had? (Pentagrams replaced by triangles, church replaced by clinics). I also heard it doesn't dumb down the gameplay like the GBA version did.
>>2850493 ^ this. GBA isn't "dumbed down", they just made the leveling of stats and magic much less tedious, which is a GOOD thing. There's also the added "Soul of Rebirth" story after you beat it. But like the anon above said, at the end of the day they're really not very good. If you only plan on playing it just for the sake of beating it at least once, do the GBA version. Doing the PSX version is just ripping yourself off of many hours of time that could have been spent on a better game.
Hey /vr/, How d you feel about reproductions of NES games that are just way too expensive to by original? I was thinking of doing this for games like pic related because i'd rather pay for the labor involved to re burn an eprom, and that person would likely be a real /vr/ trooper and get the game for substantially less, even though it isn't a very expensive game.
I enjoy having some kind of physical representation of the game with its label also. Seeing it on a list on a menu screen along with a bunch of other roms half heartedly tossed on there because why not sucks the fun out of it for me.
I was at my local game store the other day and saw this game called Rush n' Attack in the NES section and I was wondering if it was any good. I asked the clerk how good it was. He said that the game was okay. I also checked a game review on Youtube and it said the same thing. Now I would like some extra opinions from any of you guys who have played the game before.
I think I've overlooked a lot of games for these platforms, although I am familiar with the more popular series like Sonic, Shining Force, Golden Axe, Streets of Rage, Shinobi, etc.
A couple of hidden gems I recently discovered are King of the Monsters 2 and Nobunaga's Ambition. KotM2 is a sort of fighting game similar to Smash Bros. If you've ever played Godzilla Domination for GBA, it's very similar to that. You and your opponent rampage across an isometric city while trying to knock each other out, and structure you've destroyed along the way... Comment too long. Click here to view the full text.
>>2850020 The 6-pak cartridge that came with later model 2s has a good assortment of fun, though common games. Sonic 1, Columns, Super Hang-On, Golden Axe, Revenge of Shinobi and Streets of Rage. I also picked up Sword of Vermillion recently just to have an RPG to play on the genesis, and I'm liking it so far. Battletech can be a fun 2 player game, if only for the challenge of two people piloting one mech (one drives one shoots), and Lethal Enforcers 1&2 are worth tracking down a Konami Justifier for if you like...
