>2. The jumps are too floaty

SCIV literally has floaty jumps.

No matter what, you will always snap to an exact height every time and float for a few seconds before you fall back down. It's floaty as fuck. Even Super Ghouls'n'Ghost is more gradual in it's jump.
Portrait of Ruin on the DS had diagonal downward whipping but only in Jonathan mode and you can only get it late in the game.
And there is no upward diagonal whipping.
Is this the new hot meme because the internet was high on the Saturn controller for the past few years?

Explains why DOTA-likes replaced the genre. Cuts out the bullshit and puts you straight in the action.

>"cuckiest genre"
I wouldn't expect a brainlet to understand the appeal. You should try MOBAs, they're nice and simple, perfect for people like you.
>needs AI to like him because he can't get anyone in real life to like him
Sad. No wonder you hate MOBAs - you have no friends with which to play them.
Yes, its fun.
Resist the temptation to turn the speed up. The interface takes a little getting used to for modern players, but with the speed at the correct setting there is plenty of time to react to the enemy.

Same here...me and a friend did co-op and we both went into a cage in one area and couldn't get out and the rats spawning just got killed on spikes.

In the end, some dude who worked there had to come reset the machine.

Hey /vr/, I was going to post this on /g/ but I reckon that this is more your area than theirs. Everything in pic related came from a box of my old gaming stuff. Most of it was from my old GBA, GBA SP, and Gamecube with a few things from my PS1 and PS2. The only other places that I can think of where this stuff could've come from is a shitty gaming chair or maybe an Xbox 360. Anyway, I've got no fucking clue where the stuff in pic related is actually from. Does anyone here have any idea? If anyone wants any of the pictures from a different angel or something then I can easily provide it.

In particular, I'm clueless about this BUSH branded stuff. What the hell has both an audio/video lead and a fucking cigarette charger?

1 "Universal" power adapter
2 Car adapter for UpBright brand DVD player
3 1/4" "headphone" to composite+mono adapter, possibly from the DVD player or older smartphone
4 Generic Chinese power supply

Only #1 is worth keeping since it'll power a variety of DC devices, I usually grab these for $1 when I see them
Wow anon, awesome job. How the hell did you figure all of this out?

>1 "Universal" power adapter
>Only #1 is worth keeping since it'll power a variety of DC devices
Any idea what I would've used that for? I don't even recognise any of the male parts.

>2 Car adapter for UpBright brand DVD player
Weird, googling 'UpBright DVD player' gives me more results for wires just like the one I posted than it does pictures of the actual DVD players. Regardless, it seems like you're right. I used to have a player just like it.

>3 1/4" "headphone" to composite+mono adapter, possibly from the DVD player or older smartphone
>possibly from the DVD player
Sounds right. What would that even be used for? Like, which lead would even go in the player?

>4 Generic Chinese power supply

#3 could be used to achieve stereo sound on a model 1 genesis - headphone jack into the front and the red plug into the tv
Guess I'll keep it then.
What they're going from/to is obvious from the connectors. >>4453201 covered it in far more detail than it's worth. Bush is probably just a brand.

>Just how bad can it be?
Very bad, anon, got one of these for Christmas a few years ago. Wire or wireless, the controller on the device is still stiff and shit. The sound quality is shit, even when you put in an actual cardtridge. Also even when you use a cartridge it can't save
Also, half of the games on there are shovelware knockoffs of other games like snake, bomberman, frogger, etc
https://youtu.be/1yiEEXcz_SE (listen to that music doesn't it sound great?)

Literally better off buying a Wii and adding Genesis Plus GX or something
what's the easy fix, filter?
god, the worst thing about the sound is that it's entirely out of tune
Just a reminder some BR's made a firmware patch that improves the audio. Still not as good as the real deal, but somewhat improved. Works on the handheld version too.
>all those posts about bad sound

Hey, if you wanna buy be my guest.
Cool story. How much did you overpay for them.
nice blog post OP
More significantly, how much is he going to overcharge for them?

'Cause really. Giving them a visual scrub and performing some completely unneccesary maintainence doesn't make them any better at what they do. Reselling these at a higher price is a cunt thing to do.
40 vol is completely sufficient for deyellowing, the next best plan is not worth it for something as cheap as a sfc. Just wait for a sunny, cool day off, and babysit the pups while you fuck about on a gameboy or something.

How do I run this on a modern Mac?
8 replies omitted. Click here to view.
>installed via WINE
Faggot, learn to check your sources, the mod isn't necessary and doesn't do anything for him in the Mac argument.
I'm not OP. Running Win10 on this PC and Diablo works just fine on it.
But hey, thanks for being just as useless as a football bat.
Use VMWare or something similar. Virtualization is great thing.
I was just like you OP, posting this exact thread a month ago. You can follow a convoluted wine installation that for me was incompatible on Sierra, or you can just bite the bullet and run bootcamp or some vr box of windows. I myself use an old mac bootcamped to win7, you'll need to patch it and change some settings to render the colors correctly and relaunch the game when said colors inevitably glitch out, but it's often fine for an hour.
Or he could run a VirtualBox of WinXP and run the game in a windowed native resolution without the issues.
WinXP Pro Black Edition is a wonderful thing, Anon.
There's also fun ways you can multipartition.


For the first time, this action RPG (think Zelda II), and arguably one of the earliest examples of a "horror game" is translated! Pretty exciting stuff! I've been waiting quite a while to play this in English.

Main things:
-Game is now in English
-hackers fixed the overflow bugs that caused you to die if you leveled up past a certain level, and caused your inventory to bug out if you held more than 14 items

The above change makes the game much more palatable now, and emulators mean you don't have to deal with the ludicrous 20+ character password system. Some might cite the HG101 article and say this isn't the "best" version of the game, but it does probably play the fastest and drops the jerky scrolling of its Japanese PC forebears.

Awesome! Congrats. How long do you think it took? Traveling the map ever get easier?
Yes, once you get used to the "safe" parts of the water ways and also the "fetch" elements get steadily simpler as you get a majority of the NPCs collected in the church not only are there fewer of them to have to go back and forth between, some big story elements get resolved entirely in the church just going from one to another and several of the final few expeditions are returns to the first few locations.

I'd say that I spent maybe 20 hours on it but I could do it much faster a second time, which I may just do. The most frustrating part is the ruins which is the only real dungeon and I won't say it's Climatrol tier but it's definitely Climatrol-like and you have to delve it no fewer than four total times although I did it way more than that trying to trigger story advancement which is very specific and linear. Things got kind of fetchy stretchy there toward the end but I didn't mind all that much and even started really feeling that foreboding adventurous overworld music since I was strong enough by that point nothing could 1-shot me anymore. That feeling of having become strong enough to no longer feel afraid is my favorite part of horror games and this one delivered.

I just wish there was a way to keep my waifu Cronenburg alive. I don't fully understand what PS REM does and her death had something to do with that.

Going to look around online to see if there are any different ending screens (for PCE) since that one seems a bit odd like it was leaving room for a message/credits that never came.

Will probably tackle the translated MSX version of WOTD2 this coming week. I feel on a roll.

So, i never played any castlevania games and am currently on vacation with a lot of free time. Need to know if it's worth and if i should start with Symphony of the Night.

This but also play IV and Bloodlines before sotn
IV was the first one I played, but SotN was the first one I played to completion. After that I went back and played through nearly the entire series.
I started with SOTN, and enjoyed it quite a bit. It's a great vacation game.
Just get Dracula X Chronicles for PSP it has Rondo of Blood and Symphony of the Night. Or if you are more into 3D, play Curse of Darkness.
I recommend that you play at least a few levels of any classic Castlevania before you play SOTN so that the game's intro section is not completely lost on you.

How do I not play this game like a total buffoon? Also let's discuss JA2 in general I'm having a pretty great time with it so far and hey it's pretty great watching a ragteam of retards somehow win when everything is totally against their odds.

>garbage CQC mechanics, have to stand directly in front of a doorway to open/close the door
>barely any options so just try to outshoot the enemy, but Ivan with an SVD gets outsniped by a fucking guy with dual pistols

This is the least amount of fun I've ever had with a tactical game, or a turn-based game, or strategy game. How much of this bullshit do I have to deal with in the full game?
>my guys seem to have worse accuracy than the enemy even if they 90+ marksmanship
did you take a stationary position and right click to aim with more accuracy?
What is the best way to get JA2 and the community patches to run on WIN10? I have it installed but it complains about something.

Drop the backpack. never rofget itç

There are ways of sidestepping the issue, like dying without hitting a checkpoint or resetting the stage (it should bring you to the time zone you were)
Yeah but it's shitty having to lose a life just to be able to explore a level.
I enjoy taking like 20 minutes exploring levels in Sonic CD, going back and forth in time. Can't do that in the remake, eventually you get a time over.
I wasn't aware it was because of achievements though, I thought it was an oversight by Taxman.
Another reason to hate achievements.
only stardust speedway
I always liked the boss music in the US over the JAP version
mix them into a custom cd and play it that way then

Thank you. Sometimes I feel there isn't anyone else like me on this board
You mean someone who thinks a game they don't personally like is objectively bad? Worry not, many here are just like you.
No, just preferring games that are the most affected by input lag
Frame buffer != one frame of lag, retard.
PCs can edit the frame buffer halfway through the frame being drawn.
The only time a PC won't edit the frame buffer during draw is if you enabled V-Sync.
This is why you shouldn't try to engage tripfags looking for an easy "win" just because they're universally reviled. You have absolutely no fucking idea what you're talking about, and in posting your inane bullshit you've made a tripfag look intelligent in comparison. Good fucking job.

not posting on /v/ because I trust this board more
Do what you want, dude. You don't need validation to live your life.
Thank you, anon.

You're already interacting with actual children on /v/ everyday. You'll be fine.
this is correct answer.

do what brings you the most joy without harming others.

that said, club penguin is not /vr/
