Got around to picking up a copy of Pokemon Crystal. I've never played the original Johto games, only HeartGold and SoulSilver so I'm really looking forward to trying out the original. But since I have already experienced it in a way I'm looking to do something a bit different.

What should my team be?
What sort of extra challenge should I undertake?
Any other ideas?


What's your favorite memory of retro Pokemon games?

Yeah, but Water- and Grass-types are everywhere. Fire is always a pain to get in the early game outside of the starter.
This man is correct. Stadium and Stadium 2 are seriously amazing.
I think you absolutely need to have a Snorlax and Skarmory, they really are tough units

The music in this game transports me back to age 6-7, before my life was riddled with responsibility
I started up my own crystal for the first time not too long ago. It's pretty nice. I boxed my starter from the beginning. My mom are geoduck, ghastly, bellsprout, nidoran, kadabra, and growlithe. I have a couple extras like machop and another I can't remember. ALl of them are underleveled for where they are but it makes things fun at least

Don't plan on catching them all, strictly the ones I want
It's impossible for me to play a pokemon game without a fast forward function

Picrel doesn't come from actual game. Background was treated with Gigapixel AI software. 3D models were taken from in-game, that is rendered with 8x internal resolution thanks to the Retroarch Beetle PSX HW core.

If you open up their texture file, you can see that the naked zombies at the end of the game had dongs, too.
Outstanding. We don't need that upscaled and enhanced tho.

How the fuck are you supposed to beat this stupid level? This is supposed to be a Disney kid's game right? Why is this so hard?

I beat it in like two minutes. You people are just fucking dumb.
because that was made by Capcom, this is made by a group of British twats.
I still have no idea what I'm supposed to be avoiding. Everything is such a similar colour and it looks like it is all apart of the background. This game is trash, it should have been more like Aladdin.
hoo let this dookie out the b-hole
Which part are you having trouble with? The timing on the ostrich part is a bit weird, you need to do it a bit later than you'd expect as I recall for the double jumps. The hippo part is tougher because the collision detection for swinging on their tails is weird. But if you just jump immediately from one to another it usually works.

HAHAHAAHA! I just had one of my Angel nights level up to the Seraph, and her attack was changed from "Jihad" to "Laser". I can think of at least a dozen cooler things that a Seraph's ranged attack could be called, and "Laser" is fucking retarded. I don't even get why they needed to change it at all.

Any other VC games that quietly succumbed to PC bullshit?

The Angels make think of High Elves
>The Angels make think of High Elves
They are technically an "undead" unit for the sake of the game, but they do have elvish feel to them.
That's weird

I thought they were another race of beings in the original Ogre Battle

Its interesting and a little neat that the Ogre setting is devoid of elves and dwarves, unless I'm forgetting some obscure item description.

I think the closest it gets to fantasy elves are the Mermaids in Knight of Lodis, who had that attunement to nature and secretive nature going on.

>I thought they were another race of beings in the original Ogre Battle
They may have been, but I don't know. I never played any other version of the game. Having a N64 limited me to enjoy whatever RPG I could. OB64 was just one of the good ones and I was lucky....

But the Angel class requires letting a female character die, and there is a chance she will turn into a zombie....or later in the game if you have equipment into an Angel. The mechanics of some of this stuff is outstanding....The story is 2 dimensional and boring, but the customization of individual characters and units is pretty in depth.

So, I installed pseudo Saturn to give it a try and I’m not impressed. Anyway to use my action replay as it was intended again? Can I remove pseudo?
The PS utilty disc should allow you you reflash the AR firmware back to it to restore functionality
What did you expect?
But yeah you can revert it to the original state, it's one of the 3 options you get everytime you boot it up.
Just modchip it bro

Phew. I ordered a modchip from Zer0-2K11 on assemblergames forum so I’ll stick with that and just se this as a ramcard/save card
In my personal experience, AR carts aren't very reliable to save. I got my saves wiped suddenly once.
I just use the AR cart as pseudo/RAM, and save to the internal battery of the console, making occasional backups to an official memory cart every once in a while in case the internal battery dies.

I had a thought the other day, would it be possible to take the SQUARE playstation ports of SNES games and backwards engineer them to the SNES CD-ROM emulator?

Obviously it would be the actual PSX versions running as that's impossible but what about the possibility of ripping the cutscenes?music from the ports BACK INTO the snes versions? Is it possible? has it been tried already?

Unless it's higher quality versions of the original samples used, it's basically a glorified mp3 player. Those FMVs are awkward, too.
Have to admit the new soundtrack sounds good.
I would be willing to tolerate it if they were able to convert the cutscenes from Crono Trigger to the SNES version.

The video quality is very acceptable for running on a SNES especially when you consider how the average FMV looked on PS1 at the time.
They robbed us of what would have been the coolest looking console
No, this whole post requires a vicious misunderstanding of how any of this works.

I always thougth the DOS Neuromancer game had a very cool feeling to it even if some bits didn't jive with the rest (joystick cult, rastas etc), particularly the BBS stuff was good. Far cooler than the actual book imo.
Shame I haven't seen anyone do a really overall competent cyberpunk-hacking game even remotely like it, with a world to explore and everything. Uplink and text interface games aren't really the same and Shadowrun generally ruins it with fantasy and tiresome "down with the man" moralisms. Neuromancer managed to make it feel like you were a down-n-out crook rather than some kind of social activist. (the game is hyper-flawed outside of the BBS and low-down feeling tho)

It was a long time since I saw a thread like that.

Share your past experience on old school mmorpg.

Write down what you want.
I remember Subspace and also TetriNET.

Maybe they aren't really what you are thinking of though.
You are free to share what you want. Also other types of online games are accepted.

I'm trying to get into JRPGs. What are some good games I should play?

You know all those ones you've already heard of? Those.

In all seriousness though:
>final fantasy 6
>final fantasy 7
>final fantasy ix
>chrono trigger
>any of the "tales of..." series (even the newer ones)

Any of that is a fine starting point.
I heard your glasses will arrive in the mail next week.
Chrono trigger
Skies of Arcadia
Super Mario rpg
Paper mario 2
Yume Nikki (original one not the remake)
panzer dragoon saga is not an rpg

Grandia, Skies of Arcadia and Breath of Fire 4 for a sense of adventure / exploring an interesting world.
Dragon Quest 7 3DS version and Bravely Default for a huge amount of separate vignettes where you end up experiencing and changing them all through multiple iterations (BD does this a bit repetively, mostly due to budget issues), maybe Chrono Trigger too for babby's first hyper-polished version of it.

Other classics with their own strengths include Final Fantasy 5 (most fun pure "gameplay"-centric FF title imo), Final Fantasy 7 (you either love it or hate it, it's very much not a forgettable game), Suikoden 2 (not-Water Margin the Game), Wild Arms (a competent early PS1 title that's more loveable than you'd think) and Tactics Ogre: Let's Cling Together (Yugoslav Wars with a fantasy tinge).

I'm totally new to Blood, just bought it on GOG. Which fan port should I use? BloodGDX or NBlood?

Can somebody bring me up to speed on their respective pros and cons?
BloodGDX is more accurate and loads custom content (such as the Cryptic Passage expansion) easily. NBlood is alright but isn't as refined as GDX yet.
GDX is the best way to play at the moment as long as you don't mind the colors being more drab than DOSBox. GDX runs in Java, which people have complained about for reasons unknown to me since it seems to run smoothly. It also has a simple process for loading user content.

NBlood causes some weird errors in vanilla Blood and user maps that have already been fixed in GDX, and if you want to load a custom campaign like Death Wish you have to start renaming files which is a pain in the ass. I guess it has the potential to advance quickly as an open source project, but it's not there yet and the number of contributors remains to be seen.

It'd be nice if everyone were working on the same open source project instead of several different ones but there's some drama around that I won't get into.

If you want the "authentic" experience, just use DOSBox with sufficient RAM the cycles cranked up. You won't have to worry about any color errors or glitches other than what was in the original game (like the difficulty setting bug). The original game had mouselook, lots of display settings, custom controls, etc. Most people don't care enough about things like color values or a few bugs to pass up a smoother, widescreen experience with easy-to-use multiplayer features among other things.

You bought a Playstation Classic, didn't you?

I did own both systems, that's why I know it's better. Not saying it's still not shit tho.
>that's why I know it's better.
Run many tests on them?

Silent hill used to suffer slowdown on snes and doesn't on psc with the mods. Most 3d games would frameskip. Did they release an update that made it better or something.

The GB library offers better platformers.
Vs. Super Mario Bros. is best. All the best parts of SMB1 and SMB2J combined, with the infinite 1up exploits removed.

And SML2 is the first Mario game I completed, and it's trash. SML1 is superior.

Are you guaranteed to lose in beat 'em ups?

I feel like there's no way to avoid damage no matter how good you are.
110 replies and 4 images omitted. Click here to view.
It's been said here that Capcom beat'em-ups are the optimal ones to try to 1cc, but using that recent collection and the D&D games as a metric, which ones are the easiest and which ones are the hardest to 1cc?
Depends on the characters because the difficulty varies a lot, but Shadow Over Mystara, Punisher and King of Dragons, Cadillacs and Dinosaurs (as long as you play Mustapha) and Battle Circuit are the easiest. Final Fight is the hardest
Keep in mind that even easy Capcom beat em ups are still hard compared to other easy arcade games. Mystara and Punisher aren't like Batsugun Special and other entry level shmups, where you can play without thinking and just rely on dodging reflexes. They will be much harder if you just play with intuition. You have to plan and find exploits/cheese to truly understand why they are easy. The only game that's kind of an exception is King of Dragons, which is so simple you can get by on intuition and fundamentals.
>improve yourself
caring this much about video games is the exact opposite of improving yourself
c n d is pretty hard compared to the easiest.

then be consistent and dont play any at all? the irony is i'll bet i play much less than you because when a game is a longer term thing you stick to you can play just an hr a day
