2018-10-04: Search server active for recent posts, rebuilding for older posts. DesuArchive & RBT restored after host's storage had a 2nd SAN hiccup on 9/24. No damage, but posts need import from the contingency scraper. Many thanks to our new tetrarchy of sysadmins who worked to fix this complex service after the loss of the original admin. More info later. Donations would still help in case of image storage failure and we still need a new scraper.
The server is stable, but the scraper is at its final limits due to crippling resource use and cloudflare limits, so /gif/ and /wsg/ images are paused. Let's solve this: help build a new scraper. More details here.
Ghostposting is under extreme vetting by new moderators to mitigate spam. Crackspamming or responding to any is a bannable offense.

/rng/ - Randomizer General

>What's a randomizer?
A randomizers is a program/website that creates randomized ROMs by shuffling various game components around to create a new experience based off of the original. While commonly used for speedrunning contests, they're fun to play even from a casual perspective.

>Whoa, you got a list for me to check out?
The BIG List of Video Game Randomizers is a fairly comprehensive list of generators and is updated regularly:

>Some popular randomized games:
The Legend of Zelda (NES): https://sites.google.com/site/zeldarandomizer/
Super Metroid/Link to the Past Crossover: https://alttsm.speedga.me/
FF1: http://finalfantasyrandomizer.com/
FF4 Free Enterprise: http://ff4fe.com/

Some discussion starters:
>How is your run going so far? Easier/harder than expected?
>Share some interesting screenshots/gifs!
>Discovered a randomizer that is more fun that it sounds or has unique features?

Another idea that came up during the previous thread would be to run a generated seed together for a week. That would mean say, setting up a Super Metroid run with specific flags and a pre-determined seed number so we could all share the same run.

Why has nobody tried to remake it?

>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

Beginning Metroidvanias

No.5172820 View ViewReplyOriginalReport
Hi /vr/ I want to start playing Metroidvanias. I've been told that Super Metroid is the best way to begin.

What's the definitive way to play Super Metroid in 2018?

Also what are other games in the genre (old and new) that are worth trying?

Do these things cause any issues like input lag? Or do they have near to no downsides and are worth it?
