Does this ever happen? What would stop somebody with enough money from just buying up all the copies of a lower print game that pop up on eBay for a few years and offload them at 3x what they paid?

Actually, dumping and releasing ROMs is the actual crime.
I've known a lot of people who were into crypto and I would not describe any of them as neurotypical.
A few years back and I'd agree, but now it's the new precious metal grift and has gone full normalfag with amateur investors regularly losing their shirts.

Just picked one up since they dropped to $50 for black Friday. Is there a way I can flash the library from the Japanese model? I really wanna load up shining force 2 but it isn't included I the American release.

I'm gonna need more drawers when the TG-16 mini comes out.
Project Lunar is about 1 week away from release.
As far as I know, they've never committed to any release dates and continue to shut up all who ask with "When it's done".
Restalgia has confirmed that they have reliable software that is just getting the polish right now.

It's gonna be about a week.

Who had the better logo?

I would say the Japanese logo is more elegant but the western logo was more on-brand.

Yup back then, but today we have the internet and it’s so easy to get the better versions of games these days.
It came with MPEG+PhotoCD card where as Hi-Saturn only had the MPEG card
Like the vibrator?
Yes, their Saturn vibrates too.
Sega was going poor and consoles are notorious loss leaders, maybe Victor took some of that loss and Sega gave them a handjob in Hitachi's parking lot.

It's the Windows version of Yu-No, though it did originate as a PC-98 game.

>How do I start into this? I know nothing about the system.

Big archive of games, go find an emulator like Anex86 or Neko Project and load the HD files which should give you the closest approximation to what emulating console games would be like (it's actually a PC but auto-booting HDI files are basically set-up for maximum convenience so you don't have to wrangle MS DOS)

Nonomura Byouin no Hitobito. You only make a handful of choices but they actually make a difference instead of being busywork. Stumbling from one bad end to another and slowly unraveling the puzzle piece by piece is a nice experience.

Great, if you're not larping, it's fucked.
It was a console style adventure game, but probably is text heavy as well.

I heard something about a full anime adaptation of the entire manga, directed by the original creator. Hope it's still a thing and turns out good.

I really really like Shinobi X or what ever for the Sega Saturn. Even the FMV cut scenes are done really well.

Hi i've been looking for this game that I barely remember for awhile now. Im pretty sure it was a Super Nintendo game because it had early 3D 8bit graphics. All thats imbedded in my mind from it is an opening scene/cut scene, It was a bunch of bright colored frogs hopping through a rainbow cube tunnel. All the cubes were different colors and it wasn't like flashing colors. I wasn't the one playing it but I watched my brother play after he traded for it. I did some digging and I don't think its frogger 2 the graphics don't look similar. Someone please help me find this game it's the farthest back memory of a video game I have.

I played through the first level and it seems alright. Does the gameplay get any deeper or is it basically just jumping over dudes and scoring crits for a few hours?
6 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Levels become less linear further in and you unlock a menagerie of characters to possess and use with different attack strings and charge moves. The game is pretty short though. Something like 5-6 hours iirc. It's worth your time.
>5-6 hours

Sorry, I forgot about you lot that think hour long quarter munchers are acceptable lengths.
The most popular 1999 releases are longer than Maken with the exception of something like Pro Skater.
Managing the controls and different characters is enough to make this game interesting. At its core it's a shooter from the era, on console, with melee focused weapons. Worth the time.

How did they fit hours of dialog and sounds on one cart? was it really thanks to MP3?
13 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
Seems overwhelming...
Doubtful since it took 2 CDs for the full game. They more likely would have cut most dialog and used text boxes. Either way it'd feel like a completely different experience.

What compression method, if any, was MGS using? The main thing taking up CD space woudl have been audio and the hours of codecs.

So using MP3 and potentially maybe cutting some superfluous codec calls (there's a lot of those) you coudl fit it onto a cart. There may be some audio quality degredation.

I checked and I didn't see MGS on any sites for PSF audio, so I guess the audio is redbook? That score could be remade in the N64 soundfont.

So I think it's totally doable since RE2 was ported, and that had way more CG movies.
Based Rare. I remember back when some ISP banned MP3s beause muh piracy. To the point that freeware/copyleft music got taken down.

Greetings /vr/, dropping by to ask if it's worth picking one of these arcade1up machines plus the riser at $250 in order to gut it and turn into a MAME cabinet.

What do you guys think? Should I do that or get parts to build a an unassembled cabinet myself from the local Microcenter?
40 replies and 5 images omitted. Click here to view.
My main issues are size and screen angle/placement. I'm fairly confident I can cut particle board and install the buttons and all that. If I wanted 2 players, I don't know how wide to make it so it's comfortable to use. I suppose I could always change it later by cutting a new piece of particle board, but I'd obviously rather to do it right and do it once. I also don't know the dimensions of a full size cabinet.
Everyone besides carpenters, amateur or pro, has trouble with getting the right angle for the display. I would suggest getting a mount and bezel online that fits the display you want to use. That way you can feel a little more comfortable about going nuts with the fun parts of the cabinet.

Do those joysticks feel as shitty as they look? I've been tempted to try them out when I've been drunk and stumbling around Wal-Mart looking for whatever it was I wanted at the time, but they always seem to have a coating of grease on them.
The shittiest of Chinese parts, you could actually buy another set of offbrands from Amazon and it'll have better quality

I love this game. Would play it with guys from Reflex Arena
It was ok, but I found myself playing Counter Strike and Day Of Defeat far more, there's just not a lot to Ricochet.

Demul can alter a games resolution if you have no idea what I'm talking about.
I meant the resolution of the texture, and neither are running at a higher internal res.

Tb́h the reason DF showcased CRTs was almost for the opposite reasons /vr/ and retro gamers are interested in them. They were talking about the image quality on modern 3D games, where response time and motion resolution matter a lot with full-screen camera movement. Although they got some facts wrong, their argument made sense (even if it's limited to an extremely small pool of later HD CRTs). 2D retro games on the other hand look clear on LCD or CRT even if you prefer the latter's aesthetic.

I wanna play the occasional PAL game and I don't know of any consumer CRT TV that supports both NSTC & PAL aside from crazy obscure multiformat sets that probably didn't get much distribution. I know PC monitors might but I want something no smaller than 20 inches. I live in the states and as far as I know, the majority of consumer sets are NTSC-only.

>retro "gayming" monitors
I live in a small rural town where the local thrift store has a collection big ass CRT Televisions that work really well for just 20 bucks.
I just need to get some retro consoles, the best thing I have right now is a Raspberry Pi 3 in a NESPI Case
I feel dirty....
