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".

legend-of-zelda-ocarina-of-time-n64-great-deku-tree-2-1-720x530
As a psx kid I decided to check those amazing n64 exclusives I missed as a kid and I just don't get the appeal at all.
Look i'm not a blind fanboy, I loved Mario 64 more than any Crash game or psx platformer and admit it's the better game but OoT? Nope.
Graphics surely were great at the time and aged quite well for me, my problem it's very boring and easy?
>hurr hurrr it's a kids game
Mario 64 gave me fun and challenges and surpsing it made good use of exploration unlike OoT, wow here is a easy as fuck battle and some toddler tier puzzle, that's it, that's the whole game and it's notba zelda thing, I emulated 1- awakening and though I only finished awakening I got to say they were actually challening games

Tldr: I don't think I can enjoy this game as an adult.

When I launch empire earth, the resolution is forced to 640x480 even when I set to 1024x768. I already tried everything, I get BSOD or crash if I set over 720p. Should I really buy a CRT and run a virtual machine just to play old games?

/CRT/ general: behemoth edition
previous thread >>7284367

This thread is for the spirited discussion of CRT displays - Televisions, monitors and projectors used for the playing of retro games!

>Try to keep it /vr/-related: Nothing past 5th gen(+Dreamcast). Slight OT might be okay if related to CRTs (E.G. 16:9 compatible models, flatscreens, etc.) Systems with backwards compatibility are also pretty safe territory, assuming you're focusing on the older games. PC CRTs are also a-ok.
>Produce OC! Get out your real cameras and take beautiful pictures of your CRTs displaying recognizable characters with the kind of beautiful accuracy that brings tears to the eyes of young and old alike! If you take 100 photos, at least one of them will turn out alright! (maybe)
>Try to be as detailed as possible when asking info on a specific model. As always, google is your friend, and we are your friends with benefits. Older archived threads aren't a bad place to look either.
>Share appreciation for others choice of technology and personal philosophy of gaming. As always show courtesy in your discussion and moderate yourselves first.

Discussion of video processing and scaling devices is okay, but try to keep the focus on CRTs and CRT accessories

Classic Xbox Thread

It's been a while since we've had one. I just started Psychonauts up last night after seeing a thread about it, it's been like 13 years since I played the version GameTap had for PC. The Xbox port is great and loading off the hard drive makes the load screens take one or two seconds, it's crazy how fast it is.

What have you been playing or working on with your original Xbox? What kind of set up are you running? Looking for any patches or mods for your games?

I don't get why people say the Original Metroid and the Original Zelda don't hold up. They aren't as good as a lot of the games in their respective series, but they are a lot better than shitty NES games like Dragon's Lair, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Superman, and Ghostbusters

Back in 1986 (1987 in America), they were huge and exciting adventures and they are still enjoyable even today. They are also fascinating to play in a historic sense

retroid
Hi guys, can we have a retro handheld console comparison thread? I'm debating between a few of the Chinese made creations, like the Retroid Pocket2 and the Anbernic's but I'm conflicted as to what to buy. Additionally, I can find DS's and PSP's with hacked games for about the same cost or even cheaper at my local electronic markets so that's also in my list of considerations as well. The advantage of an official PSP or DS with hacked games is that I can hold the system in my hands and try it out briefly before buying so I'll know if the hardware is decent and ensure that it can boot and play the games reasonably well. I usually boot up a racing game to look for screen lag and listen to the sound quality.

If I pick one of these Chinese made retro consoles online I'll be unsure of it's quality and game emulation until I receive it. (If I receive it, some of the commenters in the youtube posts complain they've been waiting for months.) Obviously, an advantage of the Retroid or the Anbernics is that it can play a wider variety of systems.

From watching youtube reviews, I'm leaning a bit towards the Retroid Pocket2 because it runs android and I can install applications from the store like DraStic DS if the stock emulator isn't suitable. Although, I really hate that ugly bottom bit below the screen with the three menu buttons. Aesthetically I think the metal Anbernic model looks really nice and I think the recessed joysticks are a major advantage especially because I'll be putting the system in my pocket occasionally and I'm a bit afraid of damaging joysticks that rise above the console.

I saw another thread where a guy had one of the Anbernic models so I'd be appreciative if anyone owned any of these systems and your opinions on them, especially if you own more than one system or how they compare to their original counterpart.

Anyway, thanks for reading guys. Please feel free to make any suggestions to steer me in the right direction.

maxresdefault (60)
You may not like it but this is what peak performance looks like:

>highly interactive world
>NPCs more or less as convincing as modern ones
>branching storyline which can be completed in non-linear fashion
>tons of easter eggs and side quests
>positive and relevant moral messaging even after all these decades

I’m kinda interested in this game, but never really played a JRPG before. Is this safe to play? If not, is there a better JRPG to pop my cherry with? I just have a gut feeling Suikoden II is the one, but I want to make sure.

This was a lot better than I remembered it being. In fact, I'm surprised people don't put this up there with 2 and 3.

5 and 6 on the other hand, oh man. Those definitely did not hold up.

/vr/ Gauntlet
thread
Welcome to the Retro Game Gauntlet, gentlemen.

Start at NES, and work through in the following order:

NES
SNES
GB/GBC OR Sega Game Gear
Megadrive/Genesis
Turbografx16
DOS
NeoGeo
GBA OR Sega Master System
Commodore 64 OR Commodore Amiga
Playstation 1 OR Nintendo 64
You have three days to complete the game without assistance (each game gets three days, though RPGs are allowed a week due to length).

Select your system here:
http://cambysses.com/gauntlet

You can also do it manually if you don't trust the random number generator:
https://github.com/Cambysses/cambysses.github.io/tree/master/gauntlet/games/

AND BRING ME SCREENSHOTS PARKER


Rules:

1) Savestates are allowed ONLY for the purpose of taking screenshots and ONLY if your emulator/game in question does not have a pause function.

2) Rerolls are allowed under the following conditions:
The game you get requires some sort of hardware functionality that cannot be accurately emulated to complete (eg, Boktai)
The game would otherwise require cheats, hacks, or alteration of the software to complete due to a bug (eg, Cheetahmen II)

3) Playstation 1 games can be given up to 2 weeks to complete if the game is more than 2 discs.

4) If you lose / give up to a game you have to go back one square instead (ie if you gave up a Genesis game, you go back to GB/GBA and continue frome there)

5) For Rule 4, if the game you fail is on the same path as another console, you have the choice to roll for that console instead of dropping down a level.

For games that have a high score or no end, the rule is:
If no high score has been established, set a goal and beat it
if you're playing something another anon already has a high score on, beat their high score
If you are playing extended rpgs/pokemon/whatever you get a week [Depending on the game needs to be asked in thread

Can't find them anywhere on abandonware websites or the two prominent flash game archives.

I'm coming here to beg for help with DOSBox because this is something I've been stuck on for nearly a decade and after spending this entire weekend trying to solve it, I'm completely out of patience. I have no idea how to get DOSBox cpu cycles to just WORK ok. I want the cpu speed of the game to be accurate to the machine I'm emulating (SVGA S3 Trio64) without exceeding any frame limits the game I'm currently playing may have.

I've tried mixing and matching every CPU core, type, cycles mode etc. and it either runs like a laggy slideshow or way too fucking fast. I understand emulation for every console under the sun but DOS is absolutely fucking mystifying me and after years of searching online I still don't have a fucking solution to this.

They re-released this badass motherfucker for PC and who knows what else. XBox/modern gamepad supprt built in, this that hot shit. Nothing like controlling a beautiful, blood-thirsty goddess and spraying blood/chopping limbs off everywhere now is there?

The whole thing feels kind of floaty and dreamlike, but its a good time.

Never did finish it back in the day. Yeah, this is technically retro. So go play that shit instead of arguing about which old machine gets your dick hard, the fuck is wrong with you anyway...

Hi guys, i'm new here, sorry for my bad english
Im trying to find a computer game that I played many years ago, it was maybe 2004, the computer was an old one, it had windows 98 if I remember correctly, but I'm not sure

The game was about space and passing levels with an astroship ufo like or a rocket, I think they were red, about the levels I remember that were presses or pistons that could smash you ship, also were some big rolling rocks or asteroids type that you should avoid, also were lasers that I think came from some statue's eyes. I hope someone could help me to find that game, I'd like to play it again, but just find the name would be fantastic
Thank you :)
