This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games, including consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games. Retro gaming means platforms launched in 2001 and earlier, and official game titles for those platforms released no later than December 2007 (homebrew console games made after this date will be permitted). The Microsoft Xbox, Nintendo GameCube, Nintendo Game Boy Advance, and Sony PlayStation 2 will now be considered "retro".

Just because some tranny cocksuckers on the other side of the planet don't give a shit about what you do doesn't mean that YOU shouldn't give a shit about what you do. We care, but that shouldn't matter either. Make quality maps for YOURSELF, nigger. Don't be down about it, having a positive mentality if half the battle. Work hard, fight hard, play hard, and you will die a happy man.

In Boom editing, I can't make it so that a player passing a linedef will teleport things with tag x to sector/linedef y, can I?

You will never be a good mapper if you keep this attitude up, only caring about recognition. You probably made this post for a validation, attention whoring faggot. Prioritize the joy of mapping, not being recognized. Otherwise, you may as well give up now and die with the rest, numbnuts.

Honestly tho', being able to just okay on the gamepad was cool enough for most games
Anything surrounding a military that generates film celebrity voice-overs & commercials with celebrities has to have something weird about it. I'm just wondering what Jap-only military games are like this.
>I've yet to see a single parent complain
This is part of their propaganda. What you mean is, "a non-profit organization of "parents"" have not complained. Those are the only "parents" the media caters to.
Not too surprised. The Wii's marketing was fantastic while the Wii U's one was lacking as fuck. If you were a normalfag you couldn't tell what the hell the thing was
Much like the DS' dual screens. Usually, gameplay was either
A) relegated to a single screen with the second one providing either a map or a status screen or
B) just traditional shit, but on 2 screens, ZOMG!

Games which used both touch controls and the second screen in neat ways were very, very rare.

To make this /vr/, I was let down a bit by the GBA cable for GC. Woulda been nice if it made your GBA into a special controller for some 4p co-op GC game, with the GBA acting as your own personal screen for you keep some shit private from the other players.

/CRT/ General Thread

>>Non-Gaming Edition

Bonus points for discussion around CRT's that aren't specially involving retrogaming.

I will start: what stuff do you prefer to watch on a CRT?

Personally I think until we get some kind of Blu-Ray, the Sonic OVA has to be on a CRT.

It's only 15$ at Walmart to get an Onn HDMI to RCA converter. That's what I got for my setup with MEDNEFEN and other emulators. Keep in mind most of those units do some rather fucky scaling to the image if your settings on the device isn't just right. And mine refuses to output at any signal other than 1920x1080p without the overscan getting fucked up.

I resolved to have my PC output at 1440x1080p with a full screen stretch.

It works pretty nice. Haven't used the converter on anything else other than my PC. Worth the 15 bucks to try it imo.
I have a CRT in front of me and i want to get rid of it to get me a flat screen.
looks like breath of the wild?
Then do it?
Not sure why you’d think we care what you do
I bought one of those generic chink "HDMI to AV" converters and the quality is decent. Just keep in mind that they're going to output 480i instead of 240p, so not really suitable for emulating anything before 6th gen, but great for old anime and tv shows.

If the Genesis outsold the SNES outside of Japan, why does the SNES library have a much bigger cultural influence on the Western gaming scene?
105 replies and 8 images omitted. Click here to view.
Because the nintendo struck a cord with a bunch of latchkeys who basically made their game system their entire lives.
stop lying to yourself
>My sister
Games weren't really aimed at girls back then so it's not surprising she can't name too many.
Pretty much. Nintendo IPs are mostly only still relevant within the Nintendo echochamber, whch is extremely loud and obnoxious online.
Why are you complaining about revisionism that doesn't exist, and not the revisionism this whole thread is about, implying the Genesis had less cultural impact than the SNES?

>We need to collect the 4 Huge Materias to stop Shinra from using them against Sephiroth and Meteor.

This part of the story always confused me. Also if it wasn't for Shinra the Northern Crater never would've lost its barrier. It seems like just a poorly written lazy attempt at incorporating a "collect the crystals" homage to the earlier FF games. Do these 4 Huge Materia play any role in the story after you collect them? No.

Sephiroth was controlling Jenova to do what Jenova wants to do but Sephiroth has no reason to do?
Did tout guys even play the game?
Sephiroth made Jenova do his bidding that's how he ended up with he black materia and summoned meteor.
Jenova didn't do that he did.
yes, but the country bumpkin is an insanely strong and talented one, and the alien parasite probably isn't even sentient nor has a consciousness of its own.
Jenova deliberately deceived the Cetra. Jenova definitely has will and intelligence of its own.
It's arguable whether it has a "will" or it just "does."
Either way, within the game, as released then, Jenova being in control of it all is a perfectly legitimate interpretation of the story.

My only major complaint with it is that the triggers should really be like an inch or two further back
The stick is better than anything Nintendo has ever released, the dpad is fine, I don't even mind the cord. Could've used some more buttons like a Select and R1/L1 but most games handle just fine without em.
>no DC on Wii U VC
Huge opportunity missed. Would've at least brought in more Sega bros.
Well, I won't say anything about forest level (as it actually was one of my favorites), but Gamecube version is not exactly the same. They made a few retard tweaks to make the game unneccesarily harder - more specifically, in Dreamcast version of Security Hall level you just drill kick safes to open them, while in Gamecube one, you need to find the ceiling switch or some shit like that first. Also audio in Gamecube version is fucked up and lighting is partially worse, some stages are too dark.

I think a lot of people play only Gamecube version and consider that original game is exactly the same but it's not. But if you hate camera, well, i don't think you'll like it in DC version either. I quickly got used to manipulating it so I really never had a problem with this aspect of the game.
>>And let's make rumble a separate accessory

That's a good thing. Useless stupid gimmick that makes your pads weigh a ton.
>The stick is better than anything Nintendo has ever released
I've never thought about it before but Nintendo sticks are almost universally terrible.

>He leaves his key in the lock instead of taking it with him
I'm sure that game has a better volour mode than that. I remember it, but without CGA pinkness.
Don't know about the rights, etc, but they all play the same.
The EGA art looks worse.

Virtual Springfield was fun
If you replaced "always" and "never" for "some times" in that statement you wouldn't end up with a straight barefaced lie, but where's the (you)s in that? A dumb blanket statement doesn't get dumber by pairing it with a dumb madeup argument I guess.
corporate policy. they didn't want their talent getting hired off by someone else for more money.
Oddly enough this is the only NES Simpsons game that I almost nearly beat. I got to the last level which is a lot farther than I ever got in Bart vs. The Space Mutants, in which I think I may have made it to level 3 or 4 once.
It would be nice if hacks existed to turn the console versions back into this one

Battlezone textures were made to work with 3dfx dithering and CRT, but the translation to LCD made everything washed up.
Also i've found an interesting page about 3dfx cards supporting even Composite TV signals.

B but the the frame thing sucks in both
So 3dfx supported even composite signal and S-video.

it is a intersting find, mainly related to certain games.
I kinda wish to see 3dfx games under composite now
