Last month, we had a comfy thread of anons sharing (mostly) retro game music that would sound good on the old school weather channel.
That thread culiminated in this based playlist of 191 YouTube tracks.

During that thread I mentioned I wanted to make an album based on this, and after many hours of finding better quality versions and sorting out proper track names and sources, this is the end result.

This album is available in three formats distributed as a 7z archive split into 200MB parts:
>320kbps CBR MP3 at original sample rates
Part 1: https://files.catbox.moe/748mxs.001
Part 2: https://files.catbox.moe/s0ts4g.002
Part 3: https://files.catbox.moe/0g8law.003
Part 4: https://files.catbox.moe/xnjv3q.004
Part 5: https://files.catbox.moe/39q8o3.005

Can someone just fucking put the catbox file in a torrent or mega or something? it's can't open the fucking music file.
It's just a 7zip archive.
You know how to use 7zip right?

Fix the file extensions by changing them from .001 to .7z.001 and so-on, and they'll all need the same filename like music.7z.001, music.7z.002, until all parts from that split archive are present.
Here's my comfy game music playlist if you want to pick through it, otherwise these ones seem to fit the best

Did that but when i try to decompress it ask for a password or keyfile

Remember, GI Joe pussied out of killing off Duke because kids cried when Optimus died. He only got away with being "put into a coma" for taking a spear through the fucking heart.

Name any longtime developers that went to shit because of wokescolds infiltrating them, and not for reasons that were entirely the fault of the executive staff.
You really can't compare later Joe to earlier Joe
Like the poker machines that actually do cause harm to society but they keep them because they generate so much revenue

Killing animals was accepted back then in games, these days aladdin would get a higher rating because of the sword

the boomers though games ended with atari so to them mortal kombat came out of no where. After a couple of years no one cared but news stories would bring it up for a few years. They tried to blame all sorts of stuff on video games for a while including epilepsy and misbehaviour. Then the priest stuff came out and videos games didn't seem so bad afterall.

Captain N's treatment of Alucard was probably much better than the actual Casltevania show in retrospect.
I don't remember Amuro and Frau having such derpy faces. They look like coloring book drawings that they appropriated as promo art at the last minute.
I really liked Pole Position, recently found out it could have been based on the game, the show doesn't really give that impression.

dungeons and dragons could have been based on the game of dungeons and dragons on the many systems of the time

There's a Watara Supervision test core now too. Always something new with the MiSTer.

Is a jamma board really competing with a microconsole-style product though?
It's a Jamma board? Yeah, that's a weird thing to suggest in place of a ministyle console, that's like suggesting someone get one of those arcade cabinets that come with a few hundred emulated games and hack them when someone asks if they should build a RetroPi.

Also, isn't there already a MiSTer Jamma board for the DE-10?

Regardless, I have no desire to put a MiSTer in an arcade cabinet so a Jamma board is not what I am looking for. Nor do I want to play console games with arcade controls and it would be a pain to run the PC cores that way.

The MiSTer seems to be pretty lacking in arcade support anyway: https://github.com/MiSTer-devel/Main_MiSTer/wiki/Arcade-Cores-List

And for some reason nobody seems to even acknowledge the Jotego anywhere on the Wiki.
The wiki is so outdated it's less reliable than a 14 year old YouTuber. Plus I think there's some slight tension that Jotego maintains his cores on a separate GitHub. MiSTer devs are just like the rest when it comes to petty bitching, or at least they do a very accurate FPGA implementation of bitching. Just look at what happened to byuu.
Commodore 128 core in development now as well.

This looks really cool. Was this released in USA?
>Comix Zone, Sonic 3, the fast food level of Toy Story.
Those games are ugly. And Sonic 2 looks a lot better than 3
Yes, yes. Comix zone was hype when it came out. But it wasn't really all that great. It was more silly than anything. I thought the game play would change between cells... Nope, just a 2d beat em up in boxes and a big hand that "draws" a sprite every now and again. You could see how it was novel when it came out but only nostalgia holds it up today.
No, there is a patch, though. If you like point and click adventures, monkey island, kings quest, etc... Then you may like this.

I really want to play them legally but the physical copies are way too expensive and we are not even including the Apple II computer. I remember reading years ago that there was a problem with the translation and thus the reason they are not released but I can't find that post. My question is, who do I have to write to so I can ask them for an answer and hopefully a release of these games? It seems like the intellectual property is owned by Drecom and they are going to release new games but there is no mention about the older games.

Based retro edutainment enjoyer.
There is a difference between the platforms.
>pirates were violently hated by many.
No, it was the same group of crybabies. Piracy is more accessible to normies now, new games are worse and there's more abandonware exists. Just more reasons to pirate and more people can do it.
There was a legendary Usenet incel named Charles Doane who would threaten to hunt down and kill pirates, and he could bury their bodies somewhere where no one would ever find it.

Yes. It has a story.
LttP is a terrific game, but LA has a setting that I could spend the rest of my life in.
Yeah but it's not the point and linearity doesn't help the game.

why did people hate the treasure hunting levels?
they played fine
The early levels are pretty fun but they start getting way too big later on. Mad Space is a good example.
Because they chuckle

I'm not sure people "hated" them, but I'd say a majority of people enjoyed the Sonic-style levels best, so the extra playstyles (regardless of their arguably good or bad execution) represented the fact that 4/5 of the content of the game wasn't as fun as it could have been.
I loved all the Knuckles levels.
Rouge's only good level was her first one. Which is a shame because preteen me was blown away by her jiggle physics.

Im thinking of buying a handheld for emulation, from anything up to gamecube / ps1. Is there any well known sites i can buy them pre loaded with the games as i really dont want to do it myself.

What's he shilling for?
Whatever he is enthusiastic with in his other videos. Youtubers like him earn money from shilling specific brands.
Love you both
You're really out of touch.

Just get a Miyoo Mini v2 it's dirt cheap and nice quality so you can decide how badly you want a portable emulator and using the Miyoo might help give you a better idea of what you want out of a device. (ie "I don't like having no analog sticks, I better get one with sticks" or "this is too small, I better get one that's bigger")
Of course that's assuming you're okay with only going up to PSX.

They look fine when you play at 240p on a CRT but yes
However there is a Roadbuster MSU-1 romhack and it looks, sounds and plays way better than any of the mega CD laser disc games
That's a pretty big word for someone your age
I feel like any CD versions of classic Nintendo franchises would have been half-baked. Nintendo has generally been pretty weak on multimedia products
It's a good for Nintendo that they didn't. It would have flopped. These console drive attachments had low sales, few games, and pissed off the highest spending customers. It could have even killed Nintendo because they didn't have another successful console after the SNES until the Wii that wasn't a handheld.
>Wait, this article makes it sound like Nintendo first designed the playstation alongside Sony, dropped the project and went to Philips, and then back again to Sony?

Based, 6's gameplay absolutely fucks and 0 is overhyped for the memes.
>biggest number of bland, colorless missions
>biggest selection of physics-bending cheese.
Nah, its not a bad game but it doesn't deserve its reputation. 4 and 5 are both much better. AC6 has the best boss battle, great mission variety and battle mechanics without often resorting to gimmicks and gets unfairly shit on for the sole reason that its on the Xbox.
I know, that's exactly what I was saying, but that doesn't mean the others are far worse, (although I do think people overrated 5 too much simply because of the PS2 TRILOGY HUR DUR)
7 is best
Yeah, because AC0 is a 11/10
>>biggest number of bland, colorless missions
We're not talking about 4 here.

Capcom were quite the experts at reskinning the same game and reselling over and over. Glorified sprite hacks.
OP is quite the expert in reposting the same spam over and over. Glorified attention whore.
This is on my to-do list but I haven't gotten around to playing it yet.
Dude, the game is like 40 minutes long.
Maybe even shorter. Go play it now.
It's one of the best games on NES/Famicom. Possibly even in my top 10.

Capcom's Disney + Mega Man = holy shit best of both worlds this is too short I want more!
