What are you favorite /vr/ games with a built-in level editor?
Chu Chu Rocket
I liked the tracker generator in Lotus 2 on the Genesis. Not a real editor, but still fun.
I have this in a chinese cart
it was a great game and fun to play with my sister
What do you think is the second best Castlevania game?
I've got to go with Bloodlines. Multiple characters, some of the best tunes in the series, and controls that feel more loose than in the NES games but don't go full retard like CV4 did. The JP version of 3 is really good too.
Alright. Any idea where I can find a rom for the nes titles? I can only seem to find some for Genesis and snes
Also, play aria of sorrow and order of ecclesia, they are both really good but not retro.
I felt the same a month ago.
I started by playing Symphony of the Night and Rondo of Blood by emulating the
game Dracula X Chronicles and downloading a save where they were already unlocked as bonus games. Not sure where to go from there though.
Castlevania 1+3 are too hard to be fun. At least 4 is beatable.
Confess your sins anon, and be free of guilt.
Biggest "bad" thing I did was using savestates for virtually every game and for every little thing.
>spawn in some RPG overworld >Savestate 0 saved >Random encounter >Savestate 0 loaded >Repeat the loadings 10 times until I reach town without having a random encounter.
Only years later I noticed I took more time trying to save it by not fighting.
I live in North America, but I call it the "Mega Drive" and get significantly perturbed when I see it referred to as the "Genesis".
It's called the Mega Drive.
you're a hipster faggot then. whenever you talk about the genesis infront of people they cringe internally.

Bring your repair/mod discussions and technical questions here. What are you working on?
Don't forget to add your knowledge to the wiki!
Many common problems can be remedied by cleaning the console, games, or controllers. Check out the cleaning guide before trying anything too drastic:
>>4084749 >get modchip and install it >don't
That's pretty much it for your options.
Seriously though, "how hard is X" is a question that can be answered by watching a youtube video of someone doing it.
>>4084749 >I want to start small with my scph-1001
I strongly recommend against investing any money, time or effort into that hardware revision. It's not in any way worth it.
Get a 5xxx and mod that instead.
But why specifically the later models? Is there something less compatible about this launch system? I ask out of genuine curiosity. I've already had to replace the laser unit in this system so I'm familiar with taking it apart, I don't get why I should buy a whole new system for that but that's why I'm here, to ask questions.
In googling playstation mod chips I get tons of results, many from over 10 years ago (because duh), and lots and lots of different chip types sold on lots of random internet storefronts. I come to you guys requesting modern day advice to help sort through the bulk of the shit out there. I have zero idea what chip types work for what I want, what stores are still active and reputable, where to start in general. Any more specific recommendations?
All that advice from 10 years ago is still good, nothing's really changed. The most recent(still over 10 years old) modchip is the MM3, or MMC3. It's got all the features to get around anti-modchip games, and it's 8 wires or less to install. As for a good seller, try ebay. Odds are you'll find better and more accurate advice on the 10 year old pages than you will here. I don't think anyone here has installed a PSX modchip recently.
Not really sure why that anon said to avoid the 1001. As long as you've replaced the plastic cd drive's guide rails with metal ones, you shouldn't have to worry about the FMV skipping issue that effected the early units. I personally recommend the 7XXX series for the sound scope feature, since it still has both the parallel and serial ports.
understood. I'll do nothing, leave it yellow, and hope I never drop it.
Worst case, I'll buy a newer shell and do a shell swap
From what year did SNES consoles stop having the yellowing problem?
Let's have a thread dedicated to discussion of sports games, mostly those that do not belong to any successful franchise (like FIFA, Madden, NBA Action and so on), yet are still worth playing. Tell us about your experiences or recommend some gems.
I'll start with Actua Soccer 3. Pretty solid title which is fast paced, has intuitive controls and a friendly learning curve - perfect thing to grab if you have someone to play with, but don't want to spend hours on learning fancy trick combinations or are not into detailed football tactics.
Rate my team.
oh god the old glory days of unlicenced winning eleven.
NBA Jam on the PS1 is actually really fucking rare. Right now there's only one listing on eBay with no pictures from a goodwill for $80. I've been looking for a cheap complete copy for a while now
We will try to organize a full body model for Samus then, assuming she'll be voted into important spot on the team.
There is one more thing I wanted to ask about: aside from our regular anthem and goalhorns, sometimes we use special ones that should be fitting depending on opponents we face. This includes things like Silver Surfer NES theme when facing /co/, Rad Racer or Mario Kart when playing /o/ and so on. If you have any nice suggestions on retro tunes we could use against specific boards, please post them in poll, or in this thread.
>>4083081 >I learned the rules of American Football from playing Tecmo Bowl and Tecmo Super Bowl on the NES same with basketball through NBA Jam.
How appropriate. I've learned baseball rules
or at least the basics, I guess
playing the old Baseball game in a Famicom clone. Never got into football though.
I really liked how the names from ISS were carried on the next games even though the players were obviously different people (much like Allejo was Bebeto in Deluxe and Ronaldo in 64, and so on)
I'm an RPG newb, I played Final Fantasy 1 and Dragon Quest 1&2, now I wanted to play Final Fantasy 2 but wtf is this shit?
The leveling system that everyone hates aside, every character has a specific stat for each weapon, in the battle some characters are on the front and some on the back, those on the back can only attack with a bow, you can give a character two weapons, or two shields, or one weapon and one shield, or let them be barehanded (apparently some are better having nothing equipped?), and you don't know what's better What were they thinking? Please tell me other Final Fantasy games are not like this
here here! yes! i agree. and i love 8 and 2 as well. Hi-Five!
>>4081871 >To this day Kawazu has never, ever, EVER done a spell system like that again.
That doesn't say much. Kawazu does what he wants.
The boy is good due to legendary equipment and unique skills, while the girl has tons of agility. Better than most of the monsters at least
just finished the game (origins version on PSP) and it was great.
the leveling system is really cool idea and it is a shame that more games does not attempt something similar - with improvements, some of them mentioned above. however, I was not able to resist and ended up abusing it (I raised evasion so much that nothing was able to hit me), but it was completely unnecessary. also, I loved the psx graphics, especially the tropical island and pandaemonium...
Yo, anon, if you're into FF2's leveling system and want to see a game that pushes it further, try the SaGa series. Either Romancing SaGa 3 on the SNES, or SaGa Frontier on the PSX. They both have similar concepts, in that your stats go up based on what you do in battle, but they push it even further by having you acquire skills that way too. Check out the SaGa thread if you want more info.
JA2 1.13 with Arulco Vacations
Day 2, 1:20AM - Sector C7 Razor can't stand Biff so he and Fidel split from the team in Omerta and head for San Mona, while the rest head for Drassen. Razor already quietly dropped 3 enemies with throwing utensils.
Best game ever made.
is this regular 1.13 or modded?
What is this?
Easy mode? No NCTH?
Has anyone here ever gotten one legitimately? How long did it take you?
I just have absolutely no interest in FF4
didn't they all suck before 5 anyway I mean even 5 kind of sucks Basically 6-9 are the only good FFs 10 is basically an anime 11 doesn't exist anymore 12 got aborted halfway through development
yeah they all suck
FF is a pretty bad franchise desu
6-9 are all okay at best
10 and onward are not retro
Never found Mindflayer but it's cool as fuck little Rydia can summon those.
What are some other rare JRPG drops like this? Sword of Kings from Earthbound, but what else?
ITT: comfy as fuck, 0 stress, don't worry about a thing, pretty easy, goddamn i feel warm inside games
literally all you have to do is follow the bandits and they'll take you wherever you need to go with no trouble whatsoever
Yeah, it's Lego Loco. I should have made it more clear.
Sly Cooper, desu.
Not everyone wants to strictly play original consoles with a CRT. What LCD monitor are or Tv's offer the least amount of lag? Does PSP or 3DS have lag when emulating? Is the amount of lag caused by emulators acceptable?
Only /v/ still believes in that myth.
>>4084087 >> Thinks anyone besides neets and man children give a fuck about CRT's
>>4084412 >retro gamer >not a manchild
That's pretty pedo and weird there faggot gramps
