Board: /vr/

"/vr/ - Retro Games" is 4chan's imageboard for discussing retro console video games and classic arcade games.

↑↑↓↓←→←→ BA START
triforce
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".

Any pins you'd like to play or buy?

I'm still having fun on my local barely working Tales of the Arabian Nights. Before this one there was Creature from the Black Lagoon, which was well designed but the rules were surprisingly shallow.

Have you changed your capacitors lately? It’s a good idea and easy to do. Particularly problematic machines includes the Gamegear and Xbox. Old capacitors can leak and damage the pcb’s traces, and can potentially destroy the console over time. Get after it.

Sonic 2
Is it cringe to be unable to remember the names of Sonic 2's levels? I sent my brother a text asking him if he remembered all the stages in Sonic 2 off the top of his head. This is what he replied with

>1. Green Hill Zone
>2. The level with the cool music and the blue centipede things
>3. The waterfall level where Dr. Robotnik raises those two totem poles
>4. The casino level
>5. The lava level
>6. The cave level
>7. Oil Ocean Zone
>8. That metallic level that has three acts
>9. Sky Chase Zone
>10. The airship level
>11. Death Egg Zone

He was born in 1987 and last played Sonic 2 around twenty years ago. I kind of felt a sense of superiority since I still remember all the level names by heart, whereas he acts like an Alzheimer's patient.

Has anyone been able to reverse engineer the Skullmonkey's game data format?

I've been poking around the game.blb files a bit and have tried working out the format using the de-compiled game executable to no avail.

In order to die happy, I simply must work this mystery out.

I've even messaged Mark Lorenzen for help so let's see how that goes.

Apparently there is a tool called "ToolX" which turned animations into the proprietary format

So I've tried out Exult (Ultima 7 rework) with no fucking luck on how to get the MT-32 sound properly working. What the fuck am I doing wrong? The engine is supposed to have an emulator incorporated, but every option is this horrid digital sound that sounds nothing like the actual MT-32 music.

What the fuck am I doing wrong? I tried setting up Munt as well with Dosbox to try Ultima 7 there, but it sounds equally bad.

Wii emulation
1200px-Wii-console
Whoever was shilling Wii emulation the other day was right. Decided to start using it and honestly its great as a 240p machine. Native component output and 240p and you dont have to dick around with emulator settings too much, it just werks.

Only 5th gen isnt emulated well which is the big downside. N64 and Saturn will probably never be fully compatible but at least for N64 you have the Wii VC library. PSX on the other hand has improved a ton this year alone, I tried WiiSXRX and was really impressed. Had Symphony of the Night running perfectly. Unfortunately its still low compatibilty and it doesnt have 240p support yet but hopefully soon.

Upon replaying Super Mario RPG, it became a realization that this game is actually extremely average until pic related.

Bowser's castle as the opening level is very underwhelming. Rosetown is a complete bore. Toad is a bore. Moleville is a bore and also racist. It really isn't until Booster tower and Bowser joining the party that you get kino after kino. The sunken ship, the star dream world, marriage town, cloud world, the power rangers, the hits just keep coming nonstop.

But until then...?

Crocko...punchinello...arrow weirdo... Really other than Geno it's a borefest. Just thought that was interesting...like they brainstormed all this awesome stuff but realized they need to do filler to pad out the beginning

Return to Zork
images (18) (13)
Return to Zork is a 1993 graphic adventure game in the Zork series. It was developed by Activision and was the final Zork game to be published under the Infocom label.

Unlike the previous games in the Zork franchise, which were text adventures, Return to Zork takes place from a first-person perspective and makes use of video-captured actors as well as detailed graphics and a musical score; a point-and-click interface replaced the text parser for the first time in a Zork game. The overall gameplay style was somewhat similar to Myst, although Return to Zork predated Myst by a few months. Unlike Myst, which had no extraspatial dimensions of functionality, Return to Zork features multiple ways of interacting with each object in the game world, as well as with several non-player characters also present in the world via a menu which appears on the left side of the screen. It also offers multiple ways to "complete" the game.

Return to Zork was a key part of Activision's attempt to revive the company, overseen by new president Bobby Kotick. Purchasing the company with his business associates, Kotick "fired all 200 employees and implemented a bankruptcy reorganization plan", according to Jeff Sengstack of NewMedia. The goal was to capitalize on Activision's lucrative back catalog of licenses, chief among them Zork. Kotick noted in 1996 that "Zork on a brick would sell 100,000 copies".

Return to Zork is set in the year 1647 GUE, later than any other game in the fictitious history of Zork, including those made after it. Even the relevant backstory postdates all other games, beginning with the Great Diffusion in 1247 GUE. The events of earlier games and even the Great Diffusion, to a degree, have come to be regarded as archaeology or even mythology by this time. Some locations and items place 1647 - such as a club for viewing stand-up comedy performances - as contemporaneous, or at least similar, to the late 20th century.

Chrono Cross
il_794xN.2776767854_g2au
I'm struggling with finishing this one guys. I'm at the part where I have to find the 6 dragons and I'm wondering when this shit is going to end, or when I'll at least be able to play as serge again (yes, I know, don't waste your time writing what you're about to write).

Overall I think it's an above average JRPG, but it has some glaring problems that are seriously hampering my enjoyment

I only care about what happens to Serge, Lynx, and Kid. The story was cool but now it feels meandering. The game is way too easy, I think I've only gotten one game over. The battles with common enemies are too slow and the rewards are rarely worth it. The battle system CAN get complex, but with the "Elmo's First RPG" difficulty, strategy isn't something I need to consider for most fights.

I know it's a common complaint but it can't be stated enough that there are simply way too many playable characters in this game, and 90% of them are extremely shallow and same-y. What is this, Pokemon Blue?

Whats up with Blood Omen: Legacy of Kain backups?
Blood_Omen_-_Legacy_of_Kain_Coverart
I have burned PSX copies of this onto good quality Verbatim DataLife Plus Azo CD-R's many times now. I have used the Vimm's Lair rom, the one on CDRomance, and the redump from the rom megathread.
I have used different write speeds.
Every single one of these boots into a black screen on my Playstation that has a Tonyhax memory card.
Wtf is it with this game not working on burned discs, anyone else ever try it? Every other game works perfectly when burned. I have never played this game and would really like to, it looks so cool. No I will not emulate it, it has to be experienced on my CRT tv.

>Game received so poorly people called it the black sheep of the series
>Figure as someone who has liked a lot of zeldas I should probably check it out, expecting a trip through a museum
>Instead it's better in terms of gameplay then basically every zelda I've played since

what the fuck? All of these people play and shit on this game and then they make their own "zeldas" and don't have the super open world exploration? Or the superb combat with insane enemy depth? How has nobody blatantly copied this game more then they have? Is it just some japanese honor thing where we have to shit on Zelda 2 because they didn't receive it well at first

"There is a popular game, sometimes called Pong, which simulates on a television screen a perfectly elastic ball bouncing between two surfaces. Each player is given a dial that permits him to intercept the ball with a movable 'racket.' Points are scored if the motion of the ball is not intercepted by the racket. The game is very interesting." --Carl Sagan

I really hope the recent guide has encouraged people to try the game for real. That Jon Tron faggot discouraged far too many people from trying the game in earnest. As for me, I fucking love this damn game. It was made by Beam Software before they worked on Shadowrun (SNES). It is an open world adventure game in point and click with some shitty fights thrown in, easily the only blemish in the game, if you are real shit at the fights, TKISGT gives you unlimited health with Game Genie in only the fights. What is Paul Kidd up to lately in game design?

Why does everyone love this game? It’s fucking shit. The concept is awful and the difficulty is out of this world

>inb4 you’re bad at the game

I don’t care. I’ve beaten ocarina of time, link to the past, all of the original NES titles, and windwaker multiple times over but I have never beaten this awful game. When I was a kid it pissed me off and as an adult it still does. This is the worst Zelda game to ever release I can’t believe this game is tolerated.

Thoughts on Mahoromatic Digital Maiden?

I wish there were more oldschool party-based arpgs like Throne of Darkness.
252668-00001180
This one is perhaps the only arpg that has a party system instead of being a lonely ranger with overpowered endgame lazor blasting powers. You can choose between 4 different clans, each has its own set of unique quests and rewards which adds to its replay value. Each monster encounter is deadly, even a small group can wipe out your party if not you're careful. Instead of doing hours of mindless grinding you can simply save and reload just before killing the monster if you want to drop a certain unique which saves a lot of time. It has a certain survival element because there's no farming/grinding mechanic like in Diablo 1, there's no monster respawn/area reset, the amount of chests and gold is limited per the whole game, the loot is scarce which forces you to collect every item, open every chest and spend gold wisely. The crafting system is much more organic and profound (body parts, earth elements instead of generic runes and gems). The environments have much more small details, interiors, clickable objects. The bestiary is much more varied and detailed. Skill and spell tree system is inferior and more simplistic but the authentic atmosphere makes it up for it. I wish I found this hidden gem earlier. The only game that had somewhat similar mechanic and vibe was Summoner on ps2.
