One word. Sonic the Hedgehog.
Indy apocalypse? Now I know you're smoking something. Oh, and it's spelled 'indie'. You probably sleep with you're Snes too right? Just joking. But seriously the Mega Drive/Genesis is getting much more indie love than Snes. Just look at all the new games that have been coming out for it, like Ultracore, Xeno Crisis, Tanzer, Tanglewood and more. Snes ain't getting that love and that's facts.
I think you're getting confused with the Turbografx and Turbografx CD. At least I hope you are. For one thing, you cant compare chip and CD sounds. But if you're talking about the base TurboGrafx, which you should be, then pretty much every game that was ported to both sounded better on the Mega Drive/Genesis. If you need examples just go to YouTube.

Are there any other sources for "antiwalkthroughs" for retro games? I got a kick out of some of the Ultima ones, and was wondering if anyone ever put together something similar for other games.

That's actually a really great idea.
u r stupid
So instead of beating for instance Baldur's Gate 2 legit you just exploit the infinite money and XP glitches and proceed to the end the speedrun way.

That is not great in any way. It'd be absolutely retarded to ruin your first run of the game like that.
First off, you're not supposed to do it your first time through. Secondly, this isn't about powergaming, or making your character stronger.

Take a look at the Serpent Isle one. For a BG2 comparison, it would look something like

>Use probably nonexistent glitch to get to spellhold before you leave Irenicus's tutorial dungeon.
>Point and laugh at how the game assumes that all the stuff that ought to have happened has not in fact happened, and that Imoen and Irenicus haven't even been arrested.
>Go through the area, beat the Underdark, get back to Amn
>The game starts spitting teeth because you never in fact picked between the Shadow Thieves or Bodhi's gang, which would ordinarily make it impossible to continue, but due to [other invented exploited glitch] you can in fact proceed with the plot and get the Lanthorn.

They're not speedruns. In fact, it's usually harder to beat the game with this stuff than it is to just win normally. It's mostly there to point and laugh at the glitches and doing all sorts of things the devs clearly intended to be impossible.

For years I thought this track was exclusive to the saturn version.
There are few tracks in racing games I hate almost as this one.
Why would you hate the only technical and challenging track in the entire game?

What port is this? PS2 running on an emulator? Genuinely curious btw
It's the model 2 emulator anon.

Super Dropzone for best graphics and boss fights.

Meanwhile, Gamecube, PS2 are almost silent after 20 years of operation... why do I have to tear down the dreamcast and grease the gdrom gears, or even go as far as to replace it with a gdemu, then replace the fan to make it bearable?

Lots of aspies like OP who have problems with noise wear headphones all the time. If OP had spent as much time researching his condition as he has crying about it on the internet he'd have worked this out by now.
It's thinking
You know you can change the Dreamcast fan with a Noctua that's both more efficient and way more silent, right? I just takes an easy mod.

Ps2 is fucking unbearable, though.
Zoomers cant appreciate hardware with soul, unfortunately

Why would anyone be bothered by the DC, it makes noise so you know whether or not your burnt games are going to boot before the bios screen even comes up

Not to be "it werks on my machine" but it seems to be one of those games where your computer can run it or not. I have a retail copy so I just installed it and played, though I've heard patching it with nGlide will often get it to work. I can't vouch for downloaded copies.

retrotink doesn't support rgb-input, just component, svideo and composhit

and ossc supports both component and rgb.

no idea what your point is.

How'd I do /vr/?

Yes there is a lot of shovelware on GBA but I would argue there are a lot more than 20 great games for it but I guess that's a matter of taste. But let's not forget about the Classic NES Series of games, and it's backwards compatibility with GB and GBC.

Even if there were only 20 great games for GBA it still would be the best retro handheld.

Makes a big difference in games like Shenmue.

Yes, and loud. It will automatically turn off if it gets too hot though. No safeguards for volume however.

>Try to keep things /vr/ related: Focus should be on 5th Gen (+Dreamcast) games on back. Slight off topic is fine so long as it's related to CRTs, such as later 16:9 models, HD models, etc. Systems with backwards compatibility are also safe territory, as are re-releases on newer hardware. PC CRTs are also welcome and appreciated.
>Produce OC! Bust out your camera and take photos of your CRTs displaying all sorts of games, featuring all sorts of tubes, using all sorts of signals. Getting good shots can be hard, but if you take enough, at least a few will turn out alright. Tips'n'Tricks™ coming soon™.
>Try and give as much information as possible when asking for info on a specific set, or troubleshooting an issue to expedite and help you may receive. As always, Google is your friend and we are your friends with benefits. Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either; Seriously, there's literally 6 years of backlog at this point.
>Share appreciation for other's choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. Always remember to show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Limited discussion of video processing and scaling devices is alright, but remember to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories.

My PVM 1342Q that was acting up yesterday seems to be working mostly fine now. I found that the surface it was on was slightly unlevel, and wedging something under one of the corners of the monitor seems to keep whatever the loose connection is a little tighter. Once the set has been on for several hours and is warm all over, the connection also seems more solid.

The geometry is noticeably distorted though. I learned how to calibrate the colors at least. A friend moved and gave this to me and I don't know very much about CRTs, as you can probably tell. Since this is an older model I understand I would probably have to crack it open and mess around with things attached to the picture tube to fix the distortion, which is probably beyond the realm of what I can realistically expect to do safely.
If you open it up the A board has a group of potentiometers in the corner which are used for geometry adjustment.
the radius where I live has a lot of people even though I'm in a small town. Los Angeles cesspool is only about 40 miles away from where I live. There's seems to be a giant market of resellers flipping anything worth anything of value. Most worthwhile listings contain "gaming" phrases as well with that accompanying price gouge. Scouring local independent thrift stores and timing cheaper listings probably my best bet
oh, if you live near LA then that's both the best and worst place to be for CRTs lol. Just depends on how deep your pockets are.
at some point id end up giving up and getting an ossc if the prices are about the same. I'm holding out hope as a good crt looks incredible to my eyes

My grandmother used to have a C64.

Dude, I respect collectors but eBay completely priced me out of that hobby. For a few years, I could find little things at tag sales and flea markets but eBay pricing has pretty much taken over.

My concern with "keyboard computers" are the keyboards. Make sure that you can type with all of the keys. Keyboard membranes fail after 20+ years and they are a pain to either fix yourself or have some other place do it for you.
