Hi /vr/,

Are there are any Harvest Moon like games on Sega Genesis? I'm having trouble branching out from the Genesis' library of shooters, dungeon crawlers, and strategy RPGs.

good thing you asked again, several new patches and retranslations have come out since yesterday's thread

>>6071496
Yes. This translation for the first game:

And these simple bugfixes for the 2, 3 and 4:

I absolutely recommend you use this translation and enable FM sound. It is the only sane way to play PS1 now that we have the option to do so.

I do not, howerver, recommend any of those patches for the Mega Drive games. Plenty of little balance and gameplay changes that the hacker felt like throwing in for shits and giggles. Just accept the games as they are, bugs and all.
>>
>>6071596
Sounds like you're using Kega Fusion? It does the FM sound, bruv. Press the pause button on the title screen to switch between FM and PSG sound, you'll quickly see if it's working or not.

>Plenty of little balance and gameplay changes that the hacker felt like throwing in for shits and giggles.
Looking at the readme files, I strongly disagree with you. The only thing you can debate was unnecessary is some minor palette changes he did in III. Everything else in those patches is bugfixing.

Did anyone else play or complete this game? I remember having it, listening to the song lady in town a bunch of times, but always getting my ass kicked in the first dungeon and never getting anywhere.

The new one's much better though. And it's not so terribly similar. For one, the two ramps are different. That alone makes a huge difference.

There's a twitch channel where anyone can play on a physical pinball machine over the internet. Free, no lines because no one knows about it. I'm not affiliated with them. I think the lag's not too bad if your ping is good, but see for yourself.

I too managed the Gobstopper multi on my first try, and same don't know what I'm doing most of the time.
I found that the ramp shots are easy to get the hang of and was just flinging the ball around those.

How is this fucking physically possible?

Some special software/hardware installed in the pinball machine. It's Batman 66, so they just use the action button to auto-plunge the ball when the player wants to plunge it.

Not counting Woah Nellie, the last liceneless Stern release was High Roller Casino in 2001 (or so).

>Terranigma
Though I was one of very few who found the game remarkably boring, which is funny since it succeeds Illusion and Illusion is vastly more engaging and enthralling to me.
Terranigma is one of those games I admire but from a distance. Cool ideas, cool executions around those ideas, but the gameplay of 'you're Ark always and you JUST USE SPEARS' is fucking... c'mon.

Or maybe I didn't get far enough?

Admit it anons, We've all imagined what our dream rom hack looks like. We've thought about making it, youtubed or googled a tutorial on how to and gave up.

For me I've always wanted to make View To A Kill 64 or License To Kill 64. I have downloaded the engine to do so and looked up youtube tutorials and I just can't get my head around it.

What about the rest of you? What have you wanted to make or dreamed of?

Also what are your favorite Rom Hacks? For me its Goldefinger 64

This seems beyond the scope of a romhack and I'd say try it out with a newly developed fan game instead. Then again, that Super Metroid/A Link to the Past mashup randomizer exists so I wouldn't say it's absolutely impossible. Good luck!

I was watching A View to A Kill yesterday and thinking about how I would make each scene into a romhack level like Goldinfger 64 did

>needlessly uncompressed
Actually it has a purpose. Textures are huge in the latest DirectX compression format because if they were more compressed to take up less space then theyd take exponentially more longer to load. Its also because devs are lazy and every texture is 4k-8k when it could be smaller for absolutely 0% difference in quality since modern hardware allows it. There are also a lot of redundant and underused texture files in modern games because there is no size limitation keeping them in check.
Plus mipmaps have doubled in size.

We lose our imagination somewhere. When I was in 6th grade I used to imagine World War I storylines when playing Melee and Mario Kart DS battles. Something like Bowser completely annihilating Ice Climbers was supposed to be the archduke assassination, which brought all these other characters in on alliances and so on. I play now but it’s not much more than what’s actually on the screen.

Anyone else here curate their MAME romsets? Instead of dumping a full set of crap or picking out like 5 games, actually going through the entire MAME library and picking stuff out? Latest version I have has 2001 games and 1045 if you don't count clones. All hand-picked. Also, I'm using Arcade, which removes 99% of the crap that's been added the past decade or so.

Curate your life and kill yourself.

Actually don't kill yourself. Instead be the hero we need and upload your curated set somewhere for your vr brothers. Save us from the hell that is having to deal with the mame's weird obsession with calculators and fruit machines.

Also as a list of ROM names. Maybe if you have a source you could convert this into a list of files to download. Assuming they're not full merged, or you'll get all the crap bootlegs and useless regional variations. https://pastebin.com/Amf4dYRL

If they didn’t want to use CDs, why didn’t N64 use these from the get-go?

Draw points would have been fun little things to keep track of if it wasn't so fucking easy to manufacture literally anything. Like if Mag-RF just wasn't a thing and single enemies only had a finite number of spells, like ~3 or maybe you would occasionally "crit" and get close to 10, or it scales with your Spirit or something.

This is what fucking kills me about FF8. You can take literally any aspect, and in five seconds come up with several alternate gameplay designs that are far superior.

FF8 was an overall good game, the only thing it did wrong was having level scaling.

Here's Ishino DJing in Love Parade 98
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TttiEh-DVCc
You can find his Love Parade 99 and 2000 videos as well.
Also, one of the most popular tracks by his band Denki Grove, Niji, got its own remix release by Mijk van Dijk
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2JrM-wtTbxY
There's also many collab releases Ishino did with other producers, most closely with Beroshima/Frank Muller, who actually edited most of Ishino's solo stuff and some Denki Groove in Germany through his Muller Records label.
Just this year Ishino visited Germany and hanged out with Westbam. Not sure if he performed anywhere, maybe private parties.
