>The game uses various visual effects in both the top down and side scrolling stages. In the top down stages, enemies and objects are warped as they come into view to produce a pseudo-3D effect.[3] The game also uses parallax scrolling effects.[4]


Wait, i thought axelay used Mode 7?

Vertical scaling, that's it. Oops. But that's what Axelay is doing, not horizontal.
this game has terrible draw distance, I dunno how you boomers played this without getting headaches. I sure can't.
upon closer inspection, yeah, I think you're right. I didn't have the rom, so I just looked up a youtube video instead, and i think the paralax when the ship moves back and forth made me think it was scaling horizontally. It probably isn't mode 7. I probably should have just downloaded the rom and checked it out first hand
better off not downloading the rom, the game's a goofy looking waste of time
Lol, sure champ, sure.

Based on the genuine confusion thus far, I don't think so.
Interesting observations.
yeah technically it is majora
white mario is just fire flower mario
If the mask is Majora then it still belongs to Majora and thus can be called Majora's mask because one's own body belongs to them.

This game is considered retro but super smash bros melee isn't.
Good, smashfags are obnoxious faggots who spread their cancer throughout entire boards. They don't even realize smash is a party game.

I've heard VBA be referred to as "the ZSNES of GBA". What is the ZSNES of other consoles? By which I mean, while the emulator isn't the most accurate or compatible, it is "good enough" for most purposes. The upside being that they're much faster and can run on shitty old hardware.

Ah, zsnes, now that was a emulator!
You are trash
>dat slick UI

There's something for retroarch to emulate that UI, right?
PSX was pretty good at the time, the problem is that its not open source and stopped being developed. It has the best interface and no need to use BIOS files.

I wish there was a way to report 30 posts at once without getting banned. Last time this happened I got banned for reporting all the blatant shitposters so I'm not going to bother this time
When you got Snorlax, it felt like you were cheating the rest of the game. Bulky as fuck and strong too with that body slam.
In Gen2 the metagame revolved around Snorlax and killing his few counters before bringing it out for an unstoppable sweep.
I think they went a little overboard on the deleting
I think they just deleted every single post from a single IP address. Which also included the "gen wunner" posts.

I'm near the last dungeon, I think, but I'm curious: is there any way to recover LP beside resting at an inn?
I've got like 13 Ark Stones, but nothing for LPs, which is worrying me.

lol arcade1up's inhouse emulator is just mame.

this company is a disaster. controls are crap. spinner and trackball flatout don't work as they should. artwork rubs off. Gauntlet rom is corrupt and cant be completed. Street Fighter sound is fucked.

is this the years biggest fail? I mean FO76 and the PS Classic didn't shaft you for $300 afterall
Nice thumbnail

But yeah, arcade1up is a fucking joke. It's a great idea, but the company pushing it is just in it to scam people and make money off shoddy product.
the only thing these could possibly be good for is swapping out the controls for better parts and putting a mame machine in there
Yeah, let's see...:

1. Obtain official compiled code for these games from the respective companies
2. Find and dump the ROMs from original arcade PCBs in instances where the rights holders were unable to provide said data
3. Develop wholly original, in-house emulation solutions from scratch for all of the hardware types needed to run these games
4. Debug said solutions, comparing them to how the games run on their original hardware and adjust as needed


1. Just leech off of years of a dedicated fan community's labor, research, and monetary outlay for your own financial gain

It's not hard to see why they do it, it IS hard to see why people rush to defend it. It's a sub-par effort that leads to a sub-par product every time, shit literally just happened with the Playstation Classic. They saved time and money? Great, they also put out a piece of shit. We're supposed to be consumers, not businessmen observing trends.


A lot of guys I follow on Youtube also got sent free machines, since their promotional tactic seems to be bombarding everybody with the brand and getting people 'in the know' to vouch for them. Even that's kind of backfired though, when you're getting one of these for free and still shitting on it for twenty minutes it must be pretty bad.

Bought a used N64 today. It should work with both US and Japanese versions of games.
Did I fuck up and should have just used an emulator instead or will this be worth it?
Which games should I get for it and where should I get them? Thanks /vr/.

See this is the kind of thing I needed to know. Thank you.
My thread was poorly phrased but there was some useful info in here.
When I bought it (I bought this in Korea) I asked the guy at the store selling it if it worked with US games and Japanese games. He said "hold on" and used pliers to snap 2 plastic pieces off. I was kind of horrified but I guess that was pretty standard.
Or you just use a gameshark
>Bought a used N64 today.
>Did I fuck up?

You already bought it so what's the point of such a stupid fucking question?
N64 emulation is still shit after all these years. Real N64, expansion pak, everdrive, that's the real value there. Play fucking everything properly for once.

The Scenario Builder was the best thing about Age of Empires. The actual main gameplay was kinda dull

Agree with all this. Still seems like such a silly change to me, kids see blood. They get cuts, they know what blood is, seeing some in a game wont traumatize them for life.

Not asking for M rated Zelda or anything but it’s kinda sad how ‘safe’ they keep trying to make everything. A bit of grit is good. It makes things feel like a real world.
Speaking of jabu jabu's belly, I fucking hate that the worst dungeon has one of the coolest bossfights.
The chant is actually straight-up prayers and worships to Allah. The clip is most likely what is spoken by Muslims around the Kaaba during annual performance of hajj.

Speaking of boss fights, Morpha. What the fuck was that? You can just get it in a corner and it's over in like 5 seconds.

Alright, so I've had this game for about a year now, and I have no idea how to play it. Anyone have any idea what this game even is?
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
I decided to make a discord for this, because there's absolutely no information on this game.
Googling this brings me to a Wikipedia page that describes the game in a way that makes me think it's a Star Raiders clone. I then find a StrategyWiki page that explicitly says it's a Star Raiders clone. Maybe you should go play Star Raiders.
Well, I don't HAVE Star Raiders,
Well, you should go see what Star Raiders is so you can get the main idea of what this is. Or you can read this game's entry on Wikipedia and StrategyWiki. This is an extremely weird thread.
If you're in the Discord, I've already found a fair bit about it. I ran across the manual and a couple reviews of it.
Speaking of the StrategyWiki, it doesn't really have much, if not less than the manual.

Don't play kensai/mage as your first time. Pure kensai, pure mage or fighter/mage multiclass are all decent choices but I really can't recommend dual classing to a first timer.
Archers are fine but fall off a bit in bg2. Also, longbows aren't that great in bg2 so if you go that route, you're probably better off with shortbows, crossbows or slings.
All the paladin kits are great and their bonuses will serve you well throughout the game.

Would a C/M be a pain to take through the trilogy with SCS/Ascension? I only beat vanilla with a sorcerer years ago.

Also, does the familiar thieving bug still work with all the latest patches and bugfixes? I don't like my shit getting taken away.
which NPC companion mods aren't total trash?

sweet, the rollercoaster/city thread is back.
Yes, someone had to make the thread.
Most of the people are too lazy to do that.

I am very interested

probably said that incorrectly. when I was playing casltevania 3 last night on my Famicom (TM) via the OSSC, I would see some of the platforms waving left and right.
because the scaler used is bespoke and not worth reverse engineering

found the bait, don't fall for it lads

junk, do not buy

you can really tell who is a poorfag by how salty they are about the framemeister. sorry you can't afford one, but maybe either

1) shut up
