This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

Legitimately based and redpilled. I have a brother who is the exact person that you describe. Nevermind he's twenty-seven.
You have to help him anon. Nintoddlerism can be fatal.
Oh all kinds of stuff. You could break you neck trying to eat your elbow, poke yourself in the eye one too many times with a fork, the list is endless.
Using the Gameshark on Donkey Kong 64 with the infinite life code activated and saving the game will result in you having no hit points the next time you start the game without the code activated.
You must modify the code value from 041F to 011F, 021F, or 031F (depending on how many watermelons you should have) and save again to correct it.

No matter what you use you should always make backups on multiple formats in case something bad happens.

is there a way to chose what portal of summonin summons, would really like an extra faerie dragon
You can let the enemy flag the bad dwellings you don't want creatures from and then never retake them. Or just never flag them in the first place, tho that'll usually hurt you in the early game more than you gain in the late game.
Otherwise, no. It chooses a random external dwelling you've flagged.
what is this from ?

Purchase E-Book or donate directly if you want to support Dave, he only gets $0.8 from the hardcover one, the rest is for printing it in high quality paper.

You've done something very wrong with PRBoom if that's the case. Reset everything to defaults and see if it helps.

You sure? Because he certainly had some really bad days. Like when his friend committed suicide.

wtf? The audio and video both seem off
Its not entirely for me. I wanted to share those old educational games with some younger relatives and I don't want to be standing around to start/configure every program for them. They flick through youtube videos only watching a few seconds before immediately clicking on a new one. Their attention spans are completely shot from having access to a phone from an early age. But when I played some old games with them they were willing to sit down and concentrate for extended periods so its not an un-fixable problem. When I was a kid I felt like I had a huuuuuuge headstart over my peers in school because I played educational games like crazy. I want to see if I can replicate the effects.
>cable that should be able to use with my laptop + crt tv
I hope you got an actual converter and not just a cable, or else it's not going to work.
well I don't see how using an ancient os would help with their poor attention spam
you can setup a lightweight linux distro that autostart dosbox at boot
it would probably be less complicate and time consuming that finding old working hardware or trying to install xp on modern hardware
they could also watch youtube with it, good luck browsing the web with xp nowadays
I don't think you understood my comment. I don't want to be there to use dosbox for them when starting the programs. They should be able to use the computer on their own. Also I'm not trying to install XP on modern hardware, whats the point in doing that? I want to use XP on older hardware for native compatibility. I'm kinda surprised you don't know about this since this is the /vr/ board and all. People preach using retro hardware all the time.

>le bug meme
There were literally no game breaking bugs. Like two movies didn’t work properly. There are some edge cases of status effects not interacting right. The game is 100% playable. Stop listening to eceleb faggots, retard.
I love gen 1 and 2, and the series only got good again from gen 5.
aside from a few stupid bugs like focus energy and high jump kick its a fukken masterpiece

So yes then
Exactly, that was the problem. The fun teasing ended up morphing into real hatred and resentment around the middle 90s. Magazines around 1995 or 1996 started publishing really angry reader letters unlike anything ever seen. That was the end of the fun.

The MC, just a normal NEET fends off the zombie, demon, nuclear, demon again, robot and angelic apocalypse and the second great flood with nothing but a shotgun, his laptop and his dog.

Also in the following game you're such a crazy motherfucker you punch god (like, the big cheese from the Bible) so fucking hard he dies. Go play them.
Some are but the earlier games have aged horribly.
The best MegaTen games aren't retro.
Imagine the typical random battles in jrpgs except that there are a lot of them, with even less animations and strategy and story and everything. If you don't get tired of pressing A, go for it.
Even the first MegamiTensei are still perfectly fine, and you have the SFC remakes.
You just made me realize there are people out there who just mash attack all day playing MegaTen and that's oddly sad.

mame documentation might have something or maybe tcrf
Here's one video documenting differences between different builds of Champion Edition:
A little addendum to the "Egg Beater" Hurricane Kick: By default in SF2, any attack will knock the opponent in the direction that the attacker is facing. Which is why they get "pulled" in in that situation where you Hurricane Kick over them as they wake up and hit them while they're behind you. But certain attacks can also be flagged to knock the opponent away (i.e., if they're to your left they get knocked to the left, if they're to your right they get knocker to the right) and that property was added to Ken's Hurricane Kick in the later build so it no longer pulls in from behind.

Versus: SFII Champion Edition, the build where dictators porno torpedo "only" hits 3 times when blocked instead of five

>Try to keep it /vr/-related: Nothing past 5th gen(+ Dreamcast). Slight OT might be okay if related to CRTs (E.G. 16:9 compatible models, flatscreens, etc.) Systems with backwards compatibility are also pretty safe territory, assuming you're focusing on the older games. PC CRTs are also a-ok.
>Produce OC! Get out your real cameras and take beautiful pictures of your CRTs displaying recognizable characters with the kind of beautiful accuracy that brings tears to the eyes of young and old alike! If you take 100 photos, at least one of them will turn out alright! (maybe)
>Try to be as detailed as possible when asking info on a specific model. As always, google is your friend, and we are your friends with benefits. Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either.
>Share appreciation for others choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. As always show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Discussion of video processing and scaling devices is okay, but try to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories

Yes. This was a common way to hook up consoles back in the day because TVs often only had one input in the back.

This is genuine autism.
Imagine getting this assmad because your yet another myst thread turns to shit like the rest
This is fucking autism.

Stay mad that I'm calling you out for being a shitposting bitch. You have nothing to contribute, so don't get angry when anons put you on blast. No one thinks saying "use le google" is cute or funny - it was obnoxious and off topic when you posted it and you digging your heels in is worse.

Dude, I'm sorry. He was a faggot from the first post, got called out for it, and tried to derail to cover up his embarassment. It's fine- we all know who's to blame for ruining this thread - and it's the idiot with the reddit "use le google" sense of """""humor"""".
I played the game when I was only 8 or 9 and found it really challenging. got stuck about an hour in and gave up on it

aside from that I still think its a decent game.
