Let's see those setups /vr/ >What are you playing this week? I'm still taking my time through Bof3. Really enjoying it still. >What are you looking to play next? Duke Nukem - Total Meltdown.
Hey you're like me
Only that I already wasted my chance to get some furniture buying shitty games, you can be better than this. Do it, my man.
These cube shelves are so popular for some reason, but I think they are way too tall. Ikea has a similar shelf unit with wider, lower openings that I think works better for consoles. I used to have a pic of it but I can't find it now.
This is neat if it is in like a garage or a basement, but if it's in a furnished space in a normal home, it's pretty upsetting.
It actually looks like it's in a classroom or something though, so I don't get it.

>Find a Mario game with a level design THIS bad I challenge you
It has extra loading screens than the Sega CD original. Every time you time travel, besides seeing the cutscene of Sonic going through that green time portal, you have to wait on a static "now loading" screen. It's garbage.
These are all problems present WITH THE WINDOWS 95 VERSION. None of these issues are present on the Sega CD, at least not on the model 2 I have.
It was pretty bad. You had to choose between running the game smooth and slow or fast and choppy, load times were horrendous (so bad that they actually created a load screen with DA Garden art on it for such instances), and was overall just a worst experience. It did however have higher quality FMV sequences though as well as a bonus one.
Keep lying to yourself kid, but I actually own the games I emulate. Checkmate.
Oh hey Super Mario Land 2
What DC emulator can run RE2 properly?
Also, does anyone happen to have a VMC file with RE2 save data that has unlocked nightmare difficulty? I don't believe its unlocked from the start so correct me if I'm wrong. Thanks /vr/
As for Code Veronica, stay away from that piece of garbage
Funny how I successfully erase that game from even existing in my mind at times. Just earlier when listing versions of retro RE games I was wondering if there was something I was omitting, and thought "nope, what else is there".

Please stop passing on and imposing your shitty subjective opinions as objective facts.

Thanks for the advice! I think I'll play it on DC, unless I can't bring myself to pay 50 for it.
I personally like the n64 version of Resident Evil 2. It has blood color options and there's no having to swap the game like the ps1 version.
About the PC version, are there nude mods for Claire?
So, recently, I bought a Hyperkin 60 to 72 pin adapter and some Famicom games to play on my front loading NES. The games do show up on my TV, but my NES keeps blinking on and off like a cartridge isn't in the console. It works fine with US cartridges, but I can't play the Famicom games. Is there a solution to this problem? Do I need to disable the 10NES chip or something?
SMB2J is an FDS game
that's your problem right, there!
STOP BUYING GARBAGE!
Flashcarts let you play it. I have an N8 and I know it works on there, can't comment on other flashcarts though.
It's been bootlegged into a cartridge format so you can run the bootleg rom on flashcart but the music won't be the same as the fds (real) version
>>4539629 >FDS is a 60 pin device
Buying, selling or producing bootleg reproduction cartridges or labels is wrong, it's illegal, and it is literally killing the hobby.
What say you /vr/?
On the larger scale, bootlegs are simply not for us. Etsy 'repros' are a cancer though, they're just praying on stupid bandwagoners, in which case I'm surprised /vr/ isn't all for them. Never pay more than $10 for a bootleg.
There's a guy who goes to local cons that sells bootlegs and repros of stupidly rare and expensive games for 10 bucks a pop. I ended up buying boots of Twinkle Tale and Devil Crush MD from him. Ten bucks is certainly the right amount to pay for something that's "neat to have."
If you're trying to convince people to not buy repros, this is going to have the opposite effect.
I hope it hurts Pat's bottom line.
>>4541106 >"neat to have."
Amen to that. That guy sounds pretty cool, he probably bulk buys them from china and sells at a modest markup; totally reasonable.
>>4541221 >he probably buys them from from china one at a time for a few bucks and sells them for 2-3 times what he pays
You have 10 seconds to prove that (You) have the worst taste on retro games on /vr/.

I really want to read Xenon: Mugen no Shitai one day. Really, really badly. That, 12riven and Baroque Syndrome.
Doom 1 and 2 are boring and it feels like I'm sleepwalking through them when I try to play them now. Duke Nukem 3D and Quake are much better.
Fallout 1 is a short and horribly unbalanced mess of a game with "great" writing that consists of infodumps like you're reading a Wikipedia article about the places or something. Fallout 2's humor and general gameplay improvements make it better than 1. Parts of Daikatana are legitimately great. Earthbound is not funny, its "craziness" is only wacky if you've never seen a cartoon in your life, and the game wears out its welcome too quickly.
Sorry you didn't like Earthbound, but the game doesn't live and die by how funny it is. It's more about the clash between the bizarre with mundane, childish yet pleasing and clean aesthetics, amazing sound design, and comfy streamlining of the Dragon Quest style formula with rolling HP, auto-win and enemy flight when overleveled. Actually, go fuck yourself. There's no point explaining this. Only shitheads hate Earthbound and that's always been my experience.
God damn, check out all those PC-98 babes!

I tried 3 times to get into MM but i always end up giving up. Guess because i played Oot first as a kid and then MM as an adult?
grandia, earthbound, mother 3, chrono trigger, secret of mana, even terranigma which is borderline and countless others, old or recent The story fails to interest me, the gameplay is invariably tedious trash and I end up quitting after 4 hours out of boredom.
>play young link >play all of MM >play adult link mm is when link is asleep for 7 years depression aka your teen years
Nice baseless theory, faggotron.
MM doesn't happen until young Link warns Zelda after adult Link kills Ganon.
Any Final Fantasy past the first one.

Hey /vr/! Last night i bit the bullet and bought a soldering station to start repairing some of my busted consoles. I started with a CD-i I got from craigslist for $50. The laser wouldn't read the disc I was told, and the previous own didn't have time to diagnose it further. I found that the whole assembly was bad and ordered a new one from china and finally installed it last night. I'm proud to say that I was successful and I now have a working CD-i!
I have a US SNES that wont properly play FX games. It plays non FX just fine. You would think the console was perfect until you try FX.
Starfox is an example, it plays enough to get into game then the cutscent is wrong, like the camera is way off to the right and the controls don't respond, it's like you touch the dpad and crash instantly into the ground. I have tried 2 know good first party power bricks. The Starfox game works without issue on my other consoles. I have cleaned the console for what seems like hours. I initially suspected dirty outer pins where the FX stuff is read, but again, cleaned and cleaned and no change. Any ideas on how to fix this or what could be wrong?
It only lifted the pad near the through hole. I just used a shitload of solder in that hole after cleaning the lifted pad really well. It's not ideal but it worked.
If it's a trace away from the pad/hole you can use jumper wires. It's not elegant but it can save a console.
Does it come with the 3do cable? I think that's more trouble than its worth, but you could do trial and error splices until it works.
It only came with Saturn and PSX. I have a Saturn though so I don't want to cut up that cable.
Might experiment with it. On the stick there is a LED that lights up when a button is pressed, so it lets you know when inputs are working.
I can confirm this is a common problem but not that that's the common cause
>>4539771 >shilling a solder sucker >>4539783
You chose wisely. It's always nice to have one of those RMB20 solder suckers shillanon overpaid for for when you need it but you rarely do if you do things right.
