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.

after 3 thousand hours of searching on the Googles ive decided to do the component mod, seems to be pretty easy on these models, im OP by the way, Snes GPM 02 revision.

Could you guys help.me find the parts i need? ran a search on Ebay but cant find color coded female RCA connectors, ill need red green and blue, then a component cable and maybe 75ohm resistorHelp apreciated.

Dude, just use S-video. The picture quality is a minimal jump between RGB and s-video.
>>
>>3886161
This is especially true for SNES
I reverted back to s video because the minimal gains for higher expense was not worth it to me.
Enter the crazies telling me how blind I am.

If you want random parts, check out console5.com They will have your rca connectors and resistors.

Why are amerifats so obsessed with an inferior version of the Famicom?

I used to think that the powergap that left nintendo behind really started to rear its head with the wii but honestly this shit has been going on since the SNES like you said. Nintendo has consistently been behind the times when it comes to hardware pretty much every single fucking generation and yet they are still the richest and most stable company right now. I guess it just goes to show that more powerful hardware isnt always the answer.

The Famicom was the inferior version, though. You couldn't swap out controllers if they wore out.

Huh? They're cracked specifically because most uncracked game copies won't even load on a C64 (no idea about Amiga).

The manual lookup is just an additional step because the fact that games would be cracked was a given.

>The FBI has been notified. You better buy a legit copy before they get to your house.

In many cases, particularly on the C64, the crack ends up being better than the retail version. Faster loaders, optimized linking, trainers, high score saving, etc.

I honestly don't know if you just tried to pull a sarcastic message, but reading the comment chain it honestly looks like you actually thought that "Your" for that specific case was the correct option, if so, it wasn't.

Okay so you don't know about how initiative is actually a stat check, or about CL boosters like a Bead of Karma, or that a Wizard has a truckload of bonus feats, or that you can drop magic items before shifting and pick them up afterwards to stop them from melding, and that's only if you can't wear them, plus you think that initiative isn't important on someone who can end fights in 1 round. I don't really see the point in bothering anymore because you're exactly as stupid as I thought you were in the first place.

I always "accidentally" fire off mage spells to specifically summon them, then act belligerent until they get pissed and attack me. Then i slaughter them. Rinse and repeat until they take the hunt and stop coming to bother me. No need to pay the fuckers for a license. Wish I could tell them to take a hike when they come to me after i take the planar sphere too. Early signs of bad bioware writing.

most rogues at high levels end up wearing bracers anyway because their dex mod is too high for any armor

not to mention once their elaborate defense kicks in they're fucking untouchable in melee, and get deflect arrows for ranged attacks

>how initiative is actually a stat check
It's not. It's an attribute check modified by Improved Initiative. All of which is immaterial because A) you didn't say a Dexterity Ioun Stone or Gloves of Dexterity or anything else suggesting an attribute raise, and B) your gear would've melded into your new form.
I'm not responsible for your ignorance of the rules of terms. I shouldn't have had to correct you on how the Pit Fiend cast Polymorph, or that you are limited by HD in your Shapechange or the other myriad of beginner mistakes you've made.
>Bead of Karma, or that a Wizard has a truckload of bonus feats
You never mentioned Bead of Karma or Spell Penetration until literally this post. If you're pissy that I didn't count abilities and gear you didn't name, it's on you for forgetting them. And even still, you're only boosting your chance to effect the Pit Fiend to like 50%. Not exactly guaranteed numbers.
>that you can drop magic items before shifting and pick them up
Something you should've announced doing. It matters, especially since you're going to be hopping in and out of forms and picking up a discarded item is a move action that provokes an AoO.
>plus you think that initiative isn't important on someone who can end fights in 1 round.
No, I think initiative is for stupid twats who don't know how to win fights as a Mage. This should've opened with you scrying him out and telefragging him from buffed out Improved Invisibility, not chancing on an initiative check. I mean c'mon, is this your first mage? Goddamn is it frustrating to have to sit there and explain how to properly utilize a non-caster class to a guy who can't even use the most broken class in the fucking game right.
>I don't really see the point in bothering anymore because you're exactly as stupid as I thought you were in the first place.

Yes, but they were sadly few and far between. Face it, the Wii's biggest selling point was also its biggest downfall. The best things about the Wii are most first-party titles and the homebrew community. The third-party titles are mostly a landmine of shovelware and crap.

>>3885467
Holy shit, man, glad to know I'm not the only one who still plays that game, though I still think Uggaraah is the best game for the system
>>
>>3886103
So because it has lots of shovelware the good games on it are somehow invalidated? The Wii library is huge, and despite the ratio of good games to crap ones there's still a huge chunk of those that were made for people who play games and not casual soccer moms. Especially when you add wiiware to the mix, there are a time of games worth playing.

The boss health in the Remaster is actually a lot lower than it was in the original game for some reason. And if you use the Shredder explosive shells, a new glitch in this version actually has it rebound off enemies like it does off walls, which utterly obliterates them with no weapon equaling that amount of damage.

This is pretty cool, but a little overpriced.
It's just too bad it likely won't see a localization, because it would be nice to finally have an official translation for SD3.

I mean, would they bother actually renaming any of them or would they remain their weird naming mismash?

Honestly, I'd be more afraid of them doing

>Secret of Mana 0
>Secret of Mana
>Secret of Mana 2
>>
>>3886358
Feel Mana will be the best title for it since Secret of Mana is the most well known. I mean they could rename Final Fantasy Adventure to Adventures of Mana since that's the name for the remake. As for Seiken Densetsu 3 feel it's best to leave that alone. Mostly to push the idea how it never came to the west. If they did rename it feel they could think of something of Mana.

This. Cinemassacre would be the best channel on YouTube if we had Bootsy instead of Mike. I'd seriously have no complaints.

>>
>>3880969
It's a glitch that overwrites the character in your first slot with a character in the second slot.
To activate the glitch you need to LP kill all characters in the party at the same time during an event that doesn't result in a game over, the fastest and most practical way to do this is fighting Arakes in Pidona at low levels and reload the fight until he LP kills you with an attack like Blade Roll.
After you lose the fight you'll be teleported outside with your MC being overwritten by your character in the second slot, keep in mind that this will cause other effects, namely having stat bonuses reapplied to the character that takes the MC's place and the character's BGM in cities changes to another track depending on which character you're using, both these effects are seemingly randomized to an extent, you can also use this glitch more than once as long as you have access to one of the four noble demons' first battles, but again, Arakes is the fastest and most practical of the bunch.
One more thing, the character in the second slot inherits the name of the MC, so if you want to roleplay you better change the MC's name to the character's name you want to use as MC, some people think that names also affect the aforementioned side effects but I don't know if there's any proof of that, keep in mind that you can't play as Katarina with this glitch due to how the game is inherently made.
>Also is a full magic team run any fun?
I'd like to say it is but it's mostly tedious, you can do a Master Magician Thomas run with Undine, Fullbright, Bai Mei Nyan and Yan-Fan or whoever else you want but even though it is challenging most of the game will consist of frantically casting defensive buffs/cures and then spamming Super Gravity on everything as soon as you get it, Thomas can do some high damage even with fairly standard spells though, chances are he can consistently wipe most mooks with basic all target spells too.
>>
>>3882804
That's a curious one.
>>
>>3884108
The funny thing is that characters can effectively be cloned with this glitch, an anon here had three Sharls in his party by abusing this glitch over and over.
If you want "legit" shenanigans it's a pretty fun trick, wonder what exactly causes this glitch though, I guess it's some oversights in flags like the Dream Gem trick for Muse's dream world.

-dungeon are those ancient magic lurkers. sort of poshy aristocratic cunts that are actually ugly monsters living in a wet cave. they have this feel of ancient threat. every unit is mythical and menacing. And when minotaurs arrive to the battle finally, you are in for some slashing all while mana is just spilled in mass.

-tower are fucking arrogant pricks that look down on everyone else because muh knowledge and wisdom. muh godly titans, muh living water disposing decorations. They will cast the whole book just to show you that they can while nagas will give your whole army an handjob while you cant even retailate and touch dem tiities

I consider it quite good. If it had a password system, it could have been considered a great game.
