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. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

Bootleg retro stores
IMG_20200223_191946
I was at the mall and I saw a new retro store called Game Boss that turned out to be a store that sells reproductions, made in china bootlegs and shitty games. They had a bootleg NES mini set up and it had weird knockoffs and fucked up games.

I can't believe that this is a thing now. They had this weightless, obviously fake Earthbound cart for $60. How does /vr/ feel about this? What can be done about this bullshit? I took more photos if you wanna see

Arcade Sticks
Namco
So I've been looking into a good arcade stick that can be used with as many systems as possible, including PC and Wii for emulation. this has led me to the Namco fighting stick for PS1, as I already have adapters for Playstation controllers that will let me use this with PC and Wii.

Anyone have any experiences of this stick? Is it good for the £50 or so I'm expecting to pay? Are there better or more modern options I don't know about? Let's talk about some sticks people.

Retro PC gaming
A1d9ta2DEvL._AC_SL1500_
I'm going to put together a Pentium 3 build, any recommendations on motherboards? I've seen people say ISA slots are important but I'm not sure if it matters for me. Will the model of Sound Blaster soundcard affect what games I can play? It's unclear if some games won't support some models.
I was planning on a Voodoo 3 video card but am open to other suggestions. Also a general reminder that Direct X version, drivers, or operating system have nothing to do with determining if a platform is retro, it just depends on if the hardware is pre-2000.

I have a cart of Punch-Out on my front loading NES that refuses to play it. It will play everything else I throw at it, little to no fuss.

I've thuroughly cleaned the pins of the cart, and the board looks okay to me, though I am an amateur with this sort of thing.

Some inserts I get a blue screen. Sometimes, I get this purple screen. Sometimes, a blinking blue screen. Sometimes a blinking purple screen.

Do any of you guys know what's wrong with my cartridge?

I'm sure this question has been asked a thousand times already, so fuck me preemptively:

What is the most idea hardware for a MAME build?

I've done some research and read time and time again that older hardware works perfectly fine, and that any CPU that clocks high with dual core is ideal, but then someone inevitably comes into the conversation screaming that everyone else is wrong and that you need a modern machine. The catch, however, seems to be that the "you need 4+ cores and a solid GPU now" rule only applies to more modern and resource heavy games.

I've repeatedly read that CPU is more important than GPU, except, again, in the case of more modern developments. I've also heard that you want to work with older GPUs that can handle lower, more native resolutions, and that S-Video is a good option to have if you want to interface with TVs.

I've got a couple old PCs and spare parts laying around that fit the bill, but I'm looking for some more advice before I invest the time. Wondering if it's possible to get some suggestions on two types of builds:
- modern, fully capable build
- retro-only build

Let's have a thread to talk about the Nintendo 64 since I have an itch to play N64 stuff lately, do you have any N64 game you come back to play every year? I always play Diddy Kong Racing, Mario 64 or Rayman 2.
I also like playing Top Gear Rally, Tetrisphere or DK64 to relax, those games are pretty good to have a chill time imo.

Nvidia Quadro as /vr/ GPU
14-132-051-05
As far as I can tell they have none of the restrictions the GeForce series have, allowing you to use a custom EDID and modeline, enabling 240p output. They also still have analog output, either through a DVI-I port or through a DisplayPort adapter.

The Quadro M4000 is about $200 on ebay, and has performance somewhat analogous to a GTX 970. The M6000 is a little more expensive, and is more like a GTX 980.

If any anon knows that this would not work as I think it would I would like to be corrected.

Mods & Repair
gen1kfix
Hey /vr/, fix anything lately? Working on any repairs and need advice? Installing any mods? Lets talk about them here.

Did my first attempt at fixing a "bricked" genesis cartridge. Did two games, ExMutants and Sonic 3. Worked perfectly on both. Pic is just what it looked like after testing, not after finishing - legs on the resistor are trimmed and flux cleaned. What have you fixed up lately?

Unplayable remakes/ports ITT

This. The fact that the music/sounds are butchered was disappointing enough, but the new script finally caused me to snap. I'm sure this isn't an issue for people who never played the original but its a damn shitshow.

THE 4CHAN CARAVAN PLAYS: FINAL SOLDIER
van with a plan
ROLL UP AND PLAY SOME SHMUPS MOTHERFUCKERS

The 4chan Caravan is a score attack competition based around caravan shmups: shooting games that are designed to last 2-5 minutes. The caravan will select a shmup, and for one week, everyone can compete and submit their scores to get themselves on the leaderboards. There's no limit on submissions, so post a score the moment you've got one. Can you claw your way to the top?

For our second edition, we'll be playing Hudson's 1991 Final Soldier for the PC Engine. This was the seventh game in Hudson's annual National Caravan competition, and is the third entry in the Soldier series. We'll use the normal release, which you can get here: https://archive.org/download/2019_06_10_pcengine/NEC%20-%20PC%20Engine%20-%20TurboGrafx%2016%20%2820190610-062703%29/Final%20Soldier%20%28Japan%29%20%28En%29.zip

When you submit your score, post a screenshot of either the time over screen or the high score screen from the main menu to go with it. For convenience's sake, quote the OP and format your post to have the category and score first and then your name, like so:

2 MINUTE
100000 - Anonymous

The current deadline is February 24. Good luck!

While i was playing Wheel Of Time, i found something strange. In the Vault level, near the end, you can find the item Cuendillar seal, but ONLY if you "skip" the map transit by walking really close to the wall. if you do that you will however be unable to proceed as there's a wall that blocks you off from the last part of the level. Is it supposed to be a secret or an error? also talk about secrets and weird stuff you found in other videogames

SEGA Master System

What are some games for this system that still hold up in 2020 and everyone should play? Genre doesn't matter, except no games that are better on the Genesis.

The only titles I ever played on the Master System were Alex Kidd and Sonic 1 at my friend's house over 20 years ago. Give me some hits, /vr/!

I wanna play Pokemon Gen 2. It's the only gen I haven't played (Except the new one, but let's not talk about that shit...)

So, is there any reason why I'd play the Game Boy version over the DS Remakes? I remember seeing my mate play Gold growing up on a GBC and it looked amazing. I guess I wanna play Heart Gold though on an emulator

Is there any benefit playing the OG versions, or should I just go for the remakes?

Any other CPRGs that use Eschalon's turn system?
Basically the (true) roguelike movement per turn, context-less combat with a focus on positioning. No RTWP or turn-based combat in a different context, I want exactly this but more of it.
Already played all 3 books but it never gets old for me.

Teabagging in fighting games
tenor
Why do zoomies have to ruin everything? I was fighting some random guy in Third Strike and winning, then noticed he liked to throw low kicks and I started pressing down for a parry a lot as a poke, then the fucking retard ragequited because he probably thought I was teabagging him. Why is that shit even a thing now? It doesn't even make sense as a taunt.

Supposedly the Kirby games and stuff like Turtles in Time are good examples (or are they?). What else would you recommend?
