Why do you think it sucks pinhead?

SNES original, emulated or hardware.

Did amazon.co.jp change a shipping policy recently or something? I've used them in the past to ship old controllers from japan to the USA but now its not letting me. Anybody else having issues?
JapanPost isn't shipping to the USA right now because of reduced flights thanks to Covid19. Maybe surface mail is still available , but I don't know and that's slow as shit anyway. DHL, FedEx, and UPS are still going though.
Dang, thanks man
>Anybody else having issues?
Are you fucking retarded? Have you been loving under a rock this past couple of months?
I think you might be able to find something out if you do a search for "covid 19 epidemic"

What is the best way to play this? I tried a few years ago with the NA version but stopped because I sensed the translation was awful

No. No it wasn't.
The bar near your HP is an ATB bar, zoomie. Limit breaks were added in FF7.
>calls anyone else a zoomie

I have played this game dozens of times and NEVER seen this before. But I guess I also rarely let my party members stay at low health and rarely use the Fight command.
desperation attacks have such a low chance of happening you might as well just remove them and use the extra space to create more creative spells with. I don't think there's a single person who had a desperation attack in their casual playthrough of the game, at least I haven't seen anyone. I wonder if they might have a use in TASes due to RNG manipulation?

Aside from owning the hardware, what's the best way to listen to retro game music? Foobar with the MIDI plugin? HOOT?

Any links for a trial that works? Apparently Roland removed them from their website site.
I've found that trial on this mirror site: https://www.rsamusic.co.za/support/by_product/sound_canvas_va/updates_drivers/351454
It's an older version 1.03 but the differences should be minor.

Alternatively, you can download a cracked version on rutracker.
What a nice guy.
Googling the filename got me version 1.06 is still on their site, just unlinked on the webpage

What happened to this game??? i found and downloaded the typer shark deluxe 1.02 but it doesn't have symbols or numbers? I also remember there being a Bermuda triangle level which isn't included in the version i found.. anyone know anything about this?

Does anyone know of any hidden gem Military Themed games? While in Japan I stumbled across a very interesting title "Koutetsu No Kishi" or Knights of Steel in English. It's a really fun obscure tank strategy game set in WW2. I had a lot of fun playing it, it has a surprisingly high level of realism for being an SNES game.

Please reply with military retro vidya you felt didn't get recognition or that you enjoyed playing.

That's actually a real cool graphic, thanks for posting. Also that's actually a neat mod concept. Is the mod just changing some graphics?

I can't get past the F25 multi-fish boss (I'm not using save states). Should I keep slamming my head into the wall, try to reach more skip doors, or move onto Shun for now? I can do the F36 seahorse skip, but I can't get to the top door and the bottom door seems to be a trap.

this game was pretty fun, huh?
It's by far the greatest hummingbird sim ever made

There are thousands of artbooks on Ex, it's one of the best places to get and/or upload artbooks.
Yeah but why is that? At the risk of sounding retarded, I thought it was just for hentai.
They have an entire non-H section, and a Western section, so I think it's just a matter of artbooks started getting uploaded and they said "eh why not" to other artbook uploads.
Yknow what?

good point, actually.

Zoomer who's playing Silent Hill for the first time here.
This is pretty fucking good so far, I'm really enjoying myself with the game. Everything, from the aesthetic to the sound design is excellent. No to mention it doesn't feel outdated, it took me like 5 minutes to adapt myself to the tank control
I just made it to the hospital, and the atmosphere is so good.
>tfw the ambience kicks in after trying to open the doors on the third floor
>go back to the elevator and find there's a new button on the panel
fucking chills man

Are there any other retro games like this? I adore the low-poly look.
I was thinking of Resident Evil, but that series always seemed more action-oriented to me. Plus zombies aren't scary at all.

Also btw, why did devs stop focusing on sound design? I now fully believe it's absolutely vital for any GOOD horror game.

Ok zoomer
There's no other game like Silent Hill on the PS1, you'd be better served with 2 and 3 on the PS2 (be warned however while they're great games on their own right, none is as gameplay oriented as the first, especially Silent Hill 2 which at least compensates with one of the best stories in vidya). Silent Hill might be a first in actually scary games, at least on consoles.
>They're both better than 1
That's just your opinion though
>2 is mostly an independent story (and the best of the series)
That's just your opinion though
>and 3 is a sequel to 1
Good work with that spoiler, cunt
>Silent Hill 4 is a different but it was made by the same team
Same team yeah, but a few people who worked on the previous chapters didn't work on 4 and it shows. It's a good game, not exactly a good Silent Hill game. It's not as perfect as the first three were.

You either upgrade to PS2/GC (a gen that thrived on survival horrors) or downgrade to very unpolished PS1 games compared to SH1 (which is the ultimate survival horror masterpiece) On top of my mind:
>Clock Tower

And another series low-poly but for NDS:
>Nanashi no Geemu (Nameless Game)

This is neither retro nor vidya, but are the SH films worth checking out? I read that the director was inspired by the camera angles used in the original game, which makes it sound kinda interesting.

Does anyone have experience with MAC Emulation on Windows ?

So i've been trying to get pic related to run in BasiliskII and SheepSaver. I got MAC OS 8 to run. But i can't seem to get the The files for the game to work. I've tried converting the file from an IMG to an ISO. But no luck. I've searched around, but no luck finding a definitive answer.

>am i an idiot?
Yes. Yes you are.
So i guess you don't know? Well thanks for nothing then.
Okay, I'll have to look into older hardware. I've also found some videos of people getting games running in Unix. Maybe I'll have to try that.
Well yeah, I thought i would come here. But it doesn't seem you could answer the problem to the solution as far i can tell.

But that's what i expect from this place.
There is a basilisk ii quickie someone compiled earlier but you need to update the version of basilisk ii as well. The only problem i have is when the emulator is in full screen, the screen only partially refreshes.

I remember really liking the Sega Genesis Bugs Bunny and Roadrunner games. Also, the arcade Roadrunner and Coyote is a classic, if not very sophisticated. Just gotta juke out Coyote as he comes rocketing into the level.
Great game. One of the few my dad was excited to beat, great memories.
The magical quest with mickey. and Goof troop on snes are top tier. I can't really recall any LT games that are on the same level. So im gonna say didney
oh fug, and quackshot on genesis! that shit was great too, although not as great as the latter 2

Just because people are being rude to me doesn't mean you should be rude back
The main thing about it is how it looks and sounds. It looks and sounds fantastic for a SNES game and it breathed new life into the SNES. Rareware were pretty good at that; Perfect Dark looked as good as Dreamcast / PC / PS2 games at that time (mid-2000).

As a game, DKC is IMO not any worse than any other 2D platformer. The "arcadey" feel of the game works for some people and doesn't for others. Overall, it isn't 10/10 for me but its certainly pretty good. The DKC series gave the SNES some much-needed late-life viability, especially in regions that didn't get the N64 until 1997 (PAL).

Also this tune from DKC2 is amazing.
It gives you a fair challenge, has great sound design, the controls are spot on, the art style has tons of soul, and is arguable the best looking game between the Genesis and SNES.
its a great game with great graphics, awesome soundtrack and smooth gameplay that can be adjusted to your playstyle

It's a shame, I know there's some low res stuff for the SF3 artbook around, but no really good quality one either. And I don't think I've seen much of anything for 1 or 2.
Which is a shame because some of the art for those games is really cool in my opinion. Even if I forgot the artists' names again.
