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.

"Pretty sure" does not count for jack shit.
You do travel to the past. The games takes place long before Zelda 1. I don't want to be all "Did you know?" but it's a pretty well known factoid that Castle Hyrule is in place of two ruined dungeons in Zelda 1, and Kakariko Village is in place of the cemetery in Zelda 1.

>Right. Which means you lost the ENTIRETY of Baldur's Gate 1, Tales of the Sword Coast and the first 20-25% of SoA.
Not everyone plays full trilogy runs, anon.
>I never understood endorsing exploits like this. Why not just edit your character's XP if you're going to do that?
I don't really find this to be much of an exploit. An exploit allows any class to hit millions of gold in Promenade by abusing black market reselling, but here, it seems to be a fairly standard way of using in-game resources (and it's still not reliable in, say, a non-reload environment because even a 150% pickpocket thief can fuck up the theft).
>Not that I've ever found many situations where a Blade doing 6-7 attacks without was changed drastically by 8-9 with
This is actually a preeeetty big deal in something like an SCS environment where high burst damage is good, and you're also sorta sidestepping the point of F->M hybrids having better DPR potential overall - "because it's not that big of a difference". Increasing APR is the #1 way of increasing your DPR, which is why the Belm + Kundane (-> Scarlet Ninja-To) is a great combo.
>Yeah, but his spells are still going to GG the fight. And whether spellspam or melee attacks, it was Time Stop either way that trivialized the encounter.
See, I play the game modded quite a bit (SCS, Ascension etc.) and I find this not to be so clearcut. I agree it's a hard argument to make when SCS/Ascension isn't the standard way of playing, but the argument that Time Stop is a poor offensive spell and a F->M maximizes its use is still pretty valid and in some contexts makes this more of a concern.
>blablabla lost the entirety of bg1 blablabal
what if you're not replaying bg1, what if fighter was a perfectly acceptable class to play at least once in BG1, etc...
>muh exploit
yeah using game mechanics is definitely an exploit, sure... seriously who goes out of athlakata still wearing normal chainmail and a standard sword... If you get a thief in your party, why not fucking use him? You'll also need to fucking write spells at some point won't you? The only "exploit" here might be firing everyone in your team, but again, that's often something you do at the start of BG2... And if you don't want to fire anyone, you can still get what, around 100,000 xp, do the cricus and de'arnise keep and you got your dual class with no exploits, not like it was really difficult either way.
>Improved Haste works with Offensive Spin, it just doesn't stack with it
of course it doesn't stack, there is no point using both at the same time
>Yeah, but his spells are still going to GG the fight.
No. You finish SOA with one or two level 9 spell slots as a F/M. Spell trap or contigencies are usually more useful before that, staying alive longer is better than a time stop 3 times out of 4, you have far enough dps to kill anything aside from hitsponges bosses or dragons in one or two rounds with your weapon alone anyway. What will tirvialize the fight is potentially the dozen buffs you will precast, not using time stop.
>Belm + Kundane (-> Scarlet Ninja-To) is a great combo.
a combo that isn't needed with a F/M under true grandmastery rules because you can't go above 5 base apr anyway. And without the true grandmastery rule, there are always the Gauntlets of extraordinary specialization. Which allows you to wield belm/kundane off hand while using an actual good weapon in main hand (you'll get 4APR with your main weapon and only 1 with your belm/kundane off hand).
Also potions of master thievery stack and having 220-225 pickpocketing allows you to reliably steal in any shop where you can steal (however going above that will actually reduce the skill, for example can steal everything in the copper coronet at 225, can't do it anymore at 265)
Yeah, I meant Belm+SNT as being a Blade staple, not an F/M staple, because Blades don't get True GM.

I checked, I have a voxel rar in the autoload folder that ended up there automatically, and like I said I do have voxels in the game, the grave stones, explosive barrels. But the shotgun shells and those barrels in the screenshot aren't for some reason.
nvm im a fucking idiot, I had the autoload folder inside of the "openme" one.
I don't think BloodGDX can display voxels?
How does BloodGDX widen the field of view? Does it crop anything? Stretch anything? Or does it somehow do it legit and not reduce a single pixel of what you can originally see and not stretch anything either?

Why is the genre known as "metroidvania" when all the game mechanics are borrowed from Super Metroid? SotN also uses rpg mechanics but that's not a Castlevania trait either. SotN is just a Metroid-like game with rpg mechanics.
Shoudn't the genre be known as "metroid-like", "metroid-clone" or something like that?

>SotN is a complete screwball mess the likes of which I have no idea how it actually gets praised.
This, I just finished it up recently as well and came to the same conclusion, everything feels like it got tacked on and blended together, it doesn't feel like a organic or coherent game
Essentially, it feels like it was made by *that guy*. The guy you thinks "you know, wouldn't it be cool if the game were to have this thing I just thought up", except the entire team consisted of people like this, all wanting to put the cool thing they just came up with in the game. The result is all this stuff that just gets shoved in and pasted somewhere, and then just exists alongside everything else, while conversely there is no core design philosophy holding it together. You mostly end up just walking from place to place and kind of just hitting the things in your way. And while doing this you end up finding that for its not even uncommon to have whole rooms repeated 3 or so times in a row, even if they just consist of the same gauntlet of enemies.

The game also seems to do a relatively poor job of presenting puzzles to you. You mostly either know exactly where to go or what to do next, or you have no idea and end up trying random shit just to see if it works.
>its not even uncommon to have whole rooms repeated 3 or so times in a row, even if they just consist of the same gauntlet of enemies.
This is noticeable from the start too, the whole slog across to the outer wall is basically a taste of things to come for the rest of the game
god does it hurt being this fucking stupid

Could someone take a picture of the inside spindle hub in their Sega CD model 2 lid? I'm looking for the spinner that's inside of the lid itself, not the lower spindle hub.

I am not sure if it makes a difference, but I am looking for the samsung model, not the later sony version.

I picked up a non working unit and I think it is missing some parts as the magnet prevents the lid from opening and the disc won't spin with the cover on.
Some spacer?

emulators are all portable, you dont need to install them
>emulators are all portable, you dont need to install them

By "I can't install anything", I really meant to say "can't run any unapproved .exe". The software on the PC scans every .exe upon launch and hash-checks it, so renaming .exe files to existing approved .exe files won't work either.

I need it to run in the browser itself.
this is the correct answer
i heard it's kinda fragile tho
Grab a Hori Fighting Commander, emufriend.
I have an adapter i got off ebay and original white jap saturn controllers. There is no lag, it works on every machine, and it's fantastic.

Yesterday, On Doom's 25th anniversary, John Romero announced an upcoming unofficial Episode 5 for the original Doom to be released in February.

The mod will (OF COURSE) be free. But there is also a boxed "Collector's Edition" that comes in 2 versions (with one considerably more expensive than the other). (This was skipped over (presumably mistakenly) in the Doom General, so I'm making a thread for it for people who missed the announcement.)

I appreciate the talents of Romero and Buckethead, but this is just super-generic metal tat.
I'll play the episode, but fuck all this shit.
Wtf I'm Romero's bitch now.
Yeah. You just download the mod (when it comes out) and play it with the base game's wad file.

You don't actually put it in a floppy drive....
Does it have any new enemies or guns

Could you imagine playing in one of these? I'm old enough to have played in arcades/pizza joints/gas stations etc, but never saw anything like this.
This one definitely seems staged, I can't really say anything against the other one you pointed out though.
You can still get consumer grade cameras from the past. If you get some digital camera from 2001 and take a picture of some kid playing PSone, with the right staging you can probably pass it off as authentic.

So you hate JRPGs then?

Still Windows though. Even Windows 10 is pretty limited without dosbox or emulators. Can't even play all Windows games without fucking up.
Yes it does, you can reasonably expect software made for Windows 95 to still run on Windows 10. Microsoft Word 97 will still run on Windows 10. The problem is games that rely on old APIs like DirectX/Glide3D or disc check DRM like SafeDisc will run poorly if at all.
DS only plays GBA. GBA plays GB, GBC and GBA.
