>inb4 chinkshit clone
i bought a clone Pokemon crystal, and even with a new battery it will lose it save game after a few months of not playing. Is there anything I can solder on the board to prevent this? I'd really rather not pay overpriced cart with a scrbbled label, i just wanted the pokemon experience again since I let a friend borrow my Crystal back in 2002 and never saw it again.

Get an EZ Flash JR
Wow...that is quite the piece of shit PCB Probably the really shitty chink RAM or there's an issue with the PCB. Get an Everdrive or something similar, but like this demonstrates, make sure you buy a decent and reputable flashcart. You'll really be glad you did bro.
>128 bucks for a GB/C flashcart
damn. i might as well just buy crystal for the $50 or whatever is is now, since I have all the other GB games I ever owned and I wouldnt even know what games to try out
You could sell the other games you already have and have the flashcart cover them all. No more wearing out the cartridge slot by changing carts, and you might even make a profit you can spend on more hardware.
not a bad idea

Nah you don't understand, Cris doesn't learn. He works in a cycle of picking up a project, working on it for a short time, dropping it, spending 5 weeks studying some random inconsequential shit, frogposts for 3 threads, picks up another project, this one usually with some weird racist spin on it, dropping it after a short time before beginning the cycle again. Often bouncing between /agdg/, /g/, /vr/, and /pol/ with his weird threads.
Also his art and animations are usually pretty bad.

Play Severance: the edge of darkness.
Ahead of time, have you read the designer's blog? Raph Koster.
The backlash was over a new expansion pack created by the EE developer. The original game's writing is unchanged as far as I'm aware.
you dont really miss out on anything by not playing Ultima 1, 2 and 3, they are games which Garriott used to better himself as a game developer, Ultima 4 is where Garriott sets the setting in stone and the story of the Avatar begins
I finished the NWN port recently. It never crashed on me or failed to work. Avatarhood is rather simplistic but it is functional. Mainly when you meditate correctly at a shrine you gain avatarhood in that virtue. But you can lose a virtue by basic game actions like stealing. Then you have to go back to the shrine and meditate again. Some D&D classes will be nonviable, particularly rogues since all their skills run contrary to the virtues and their health is a bit too low for some of the late game enemies. Clerics IMO are the best suited to the module, particularly when you'll be dealing with Gazers, Demons, and Balrogs who can cast instant death spells.

One major recommendation is to save before touching any of the orbs in the dungeons. They raise your attributes RANDOMLY so you should savescum until you can optimize. These will HARD RESET if you die and respawn at Lord British's castle, so reload a save and save yourself the trouble.

Another important note is to thoroughly read the design documents on the Neverwinter Vault page. There are insofar as I know two versions of this mod. One is less polished but a bit more open, the other is more polished but has limitations. For instance, the first mod has no companion limit, however it also has no portraits from the actual ultima series. The second limits you to 3 companions, but they are more fleshed out, I couldn't get Dupre for some reason, however. Ultimately I went with the second mod because of it's more thorough unit portraits and better user interface (it tells you where the moongates lead to for instance, I appreciated that).

NWN's quest system is more dialogue trigger-driven than several RPGS, so you'll still need to talk to everyone on the planet if you want to be able to beat the game, as there is no custom dialogue input, you'll have to find it in conversation.

No, that's not correct. Most modules work for the EE, not perfectly but Beamdog is constantly updating.

>Interview with Howard Lincoln from Next Generation magazine (May, 1997).
>This issue covered the problems with the Nintendo 64, something no magazine was really talking about at the time. They very bluntly bring up these problems in their interview.
Was Next Generation right about the N64 not having enough quality titles?
105 replies and 21 images omitted. Click here to view.
>But, think of it this way. I talk to to 10 PS1 or 10 Saturn fans (especially japanese saturn fans), and they likely have all different games they owned. I talk to 10 N64 fans, and 90% of their lists are gonna be the same. N64 was a 1st and 2nd party system, while PS was all third party.
Why? You keep saying this is a relevant criticism without explaining how it is. If a lot of people played and enjoyed many of the same games, how does this necessarily make the games or the system they played worse than others?

Gives people options. Some people don't like fps, some people like visual novels. Some people like dating sims, etc. And there's no "hidden gems" on the N64 aside from one or two games, but I feel like I find a new interesting ps game once a month.
None of that reflects the quality of the system or its games, though. If someone doesn't like most N64 games, that doesn't make N64 bad. It just means that person doesn't like N64 games. Inversely, PS1 games could all be terrible despite it having a large variety of terrible titles (I don't think it does it at all, by the way), regardless that it allows you to namedrop a lot more random titles. Variety doesn't necessarily equal quality as you're claiming, so again, how is this a relevant argument against the N64?
That's the story of their life post SNES. The truth though is that Nintendo couldn't really keep up with production when they weren't afloat with 3rd party games. Every gen gets more labor-intensive and every time Nintendo can only do so many titles themselves. I mean, look at any nintendo library without 3rd party, and it looks pretty paltry, excepting maybe NES when they could crank out games like they were nothing.
>What about teens?
I don't know where you grew up, but maybe 1% of the kids i went to school with were employed.
>Also when you look at Goldeneye or Perfect Dark they're definitely not targetted at "little kids"
I played that shit on launch when i was like 6, and so did literally every other kid i knew. You see it with kids today playing cod and gta.

>Seeing what's ahead of you is taking advantage
Agreed, but that's the whole point, on SMS, there's some parts where you actually CAN'T see what's ahead/around you due to them not properly designing the layout.
GG's field of view might be smaller due to the resolution, but the game is still better balanced for it. Your argument works for Sonic 2, but not for Sonic 1.
>Last boss is much different.
It's easy as shit on both versions, but at least the lighting bolt on GG tracks Sonic with semi-homing function, on SMS the bolt always goes the same way. Also, the main difference, besides that, is that the main hazard on GG's final boss is the fire coming out of the floor. It's still easy to avoid, just stay on the left side of the screen, but at least it could get you if you're not careful, since it actually appears below Sonic. On SMS they just went with the hazard that moves from left to right. The way to avoid it is also the same, just stay on the left side. The main difference is, again, just the waiting time. You have to wait a bit more on SMS.
>Also GG Sonic looks noseless
The nose is still there, but yeah, maybe it doesn't pop out of Sonic's face as much as on SMS' version, but that still doesn't make Sonic's sprite on SMS better: Less colors, and the weird eyes, where one eye is a square.
>which is why sprite mods for it available.
It was just one guy who was nostalgic as fuck for the SMS. Which is OK, I don't blame nostalgia, but objectively the GG sprite looks better.
Really, the SMS version has almost nothing going for it other than the bigger resolution, but again, the problem is, they didn't properly design the game for the SMS' resolution, and in the end makes for a better experience on the GG.
There's still nothing wrong with wanting to play it on SMS, I'm sure you won't stop liking it and in fact, I bet this discussion you're having with me just will make you hold onto it even more, but there's a list of factors in favor of GG.
>the game is still better balanced for it
You speak of spikes you can't see, I say the unseen platform in Sky Base and sign posts are just as good as anecdotal evidence of the contrary, but on SMS the whole rest of the game is more enjoyable due to added visibility. The game could use some more view area below Sonic in my opinion, but it's still far better than GG.
>I bet this discussion you're having with me just will make you hold onto it even more
Anon, I own both...
Love the master system, its better than the genesis in some ways for its time. From 1986 to 1991 it even competed well with ms dos pc's.

Nothing wrong being an alterative to 16 bit. Sega Megadrive games could get to $100 in my currency of Australia while good sms games would be $30 to $50 and still provided a good time. Is it really worth paying $50 extra to go from Aladdin on sms to the megadrive, for many people it wasn't.

I've honestly never played a retro system that after some time I really hated, even zx spectrum has some good graphics.
Agreed, especially for Spectrum, even though I'm American.

I manage the pre-patched (typo in the OP btw, and it's also a slight misnomer) translations and improvements folder. Recently I've been keeping a changelog that I keep in the main directory, is everyone satisfied with its format? Any hacks with updates I've missed? Notable games/consoles that I'm missing? I'm interested to know how many people actually use it, as it sort of just started as a way for me to back up and keep track of which hacks I use.
The Super Mario Advance [VoiceRemoval+ColorRestoration+SpriteConsistency] hack has broken sprites.
Thanks, it seems to be fixed by patching Sprite Consistency before Color Restoration. I'll update it right now.

You're underestimating the ability to simplify the construction of the things. If you don't think an edge connector and a glop top is cheaper than the innards of your average Famicom cart, you're dreaming.
Out of boredom yes.
Just play the arcade version on MAME, or on the Splatterhouse 2010 reboot (the original trilogy is unlockable).

How do we uncuck Saturn emulation

>4 frames is 16.6ms*4 incurred delay
Depends on the framerate the games run at, no? At 30 fps it's longer than at 60fps or am I making a mistake here? 4 frames lag isn't 4 fps lag. It's 4 frames out of a specific frameRATE. It 144 Hz it's not much at all.
Internal FPS of the game does not matter. NTSC games always run at 60hz.
Having a difficult time wrapping my head around that. I think noticed that when I was testing lag earlier in Panzer Dragoon and I would hit frameadvance the game would draw a new frame only ever other keystroke. And the lag was about double the keystrokes compared to the other 3 titles I tested - which I assume run at 60Hz? How does that fit with your post?

Maybe Panzer Dragoon is just weird though? It draws every frame twice maybe? But that, in my understanding, would mean that I am correct as more time will pass before an input shows feedback on the screen.
Again, all NTSC games update 60 times per second. If the game itself cannot run at the target frame rate (like Panzer Dragon which runs at 20 fps internally), Saturn (or any other analog console) outputs 1 unique frame, followed by 2 duplicate frames in succession. This should not concern you, as retroarch runahead feature treats any frame output, be it unique or not, the same.
Okay that makes more sense now to me. Decoupling it like. Thanks for clearing that up. So it still reduces input lag just the same... and why wouldn't it.

I don't know, i feel that Suda was still starting to write, Lunatics has a huge loredump right in the beginning.

I feel that most of the stuff he learned to master in Killer7 and Flower Sun and Rain, incluiding subtlety and avoiding Kojima's huge speeches weren't there, but it's still an interesting story. Placebo is goddamn amazing and i like the Lynchian approach that Transmitter has.
Its incredible that the extra story is even more of a clusterfuck than the original

Which versions, aside from the latest, of MAME are best? Like some versions are key for net play, some are good for screenshots, etc.
Only the latest ones are the best. Added games aren't the only improvements with each revision; typically, there are other things, such as fixes so games run better. The only thing that gets on my nerves, is that sometimes they'll temporarily remove games for whatever reason.
Wasn't there a period past 0.200 where a bunch of big titles were broken?
