Go to any city or a Sanctuary. You can even raise them in combat with Divine Intervention (level 5 life). Really though you should be using Potions of Immortality all the time so this never happens.
Hit tab and set delay to 1, don't use zero because then you won't see the full list of drops. You can also change clock cycles with alt f11 to lower and alt f12 to speed up.
I'm assuming you meant MM not HoMM because you said DOSBOX. If it were for HoMM the answer is install HD .
Yeah I meant MM 3. Thanks anon
It's ctrl f11 and ctrl f12, not alt.

Has anyone on /vr/ ever beaten Rogue?

Is this the hardest retro game ever made?
10 replies and 2 images omitted. Click here to view.
Probably but I never did. We were still on PDPs when it was made and by the time anyone had ported it to a home platform people were doing much more sophisticated stuff, game play wise and visually.

No Ultima thread? Well, let's change that.
Which game from the series is your favourite and why?
Is Nuvie any good? Similar to Exult? And are there any other emulators/mods/remakes of Ultima games?

Is it like Ultima 6, where you use press numbers?
Yep. There's even a quest that requires it.

Currently playing Duck Hunt drunk. What are your favorite light-gun games, /vr/? I also own Lethal Enforcers on Genesis and House of the Dead on Dreamcast.
Time crisis and point blank.
What's your preferred gun for these? I don't own a good piece for my PS1 yet.
PS1 light gun games are tricky compatibility-wise. Some games only support the GunCon (Namco games) and others only support the Justifier (Konami games). There are a some game that support both, though, like Elemental Gearbolt. I can't really speak from experience, but from what I hear, most people tend to prefer the GunCon.

Why did you do this?

>Basically, foreign tourists plundered Akibahara's stores of retro games these last years. Those shops sustained themselves so far from second-hand copies Japanese gamers would buy, play for a while, and then resell back to the same store (or other stores in Akibahara) when they're done with it. But this doesn't work out anymore when the customer is a foreigner who'd take the game overseas and never "return" it, much less so thousands of those customers.

>When you combine this with Western scalpers pricing many coveted US copies of classics like Chrono Trigger, Earthbound and even crapware like Incantation at $200 minimum, realizing the Japanese copies are much cheaper and then they decide to expand their business to those copies that used to be sold close to their MSRP years after the official release in Japan, ruining the day for everyone... You get the idea. Even online stores implemented restrictions on foreign purchases because shops and media publishers were weary of prices being influenced by "foreigners".

Why the 3DO is so forgotten?

Good hardware AND good games.

Best version of Wing commander 3, Need for speed, Road Rash, FIFA, MADDEN, SSF2X...

Best FMV than Saturn..

Basically because as a platform that wasn't tied to software markup, it was very expensive and never got the installed user base before Playstation came along. The only reason it wasn't a complete joke like Ouya was because it was still cheaper than a gaming computer
3DO had one good game and it involved Kirk Cameron
>Why the 3DO is so forgotten?
Almost everyone stuck with their SNES or Genesis til the PSX arrived.

>Good hardware
Yes, for 1993, a transitional period which meant poor 2D AND poor 3D performance.

>good games
They aren't terrible for the most part.

>Best version of Wing commander 3

>Need for speed
Shit framerate compared to PSX or SS, the speed of driving is slowed to hide this and it makes it feel like a different game altogether.

i would like to remind everyone that we abandoned 2D for THIS
130 replies and 26 images omitted. Click here to view.
You know how long it takes to make a realistic 3d model? You know how there's a reason the only good looking 3d games today are those from AAA developers because they have hundreds working on the art? Don't you think there's a reason that 2d indie games require much smaller teams and much less time? There's a huge difference in making a simple, animated sprite and making a high-poly, fully rigged and animated, textured, shaded character in a game. To make a good 3d character requires a lot of experience and knowledge of anatomy, proportions, topology, and learning these things properly will take you at least a few months. 3d takes a fuck load of time and anyone who claims 3d is easier than 2d needs to put their shit back through their throats where it belongs.
>you know, sharp 3d graphics isn't the hardest thing to do. You can turn off lighting, use point-filtering, turn off image effects, raise poly-counts, as a game designer. It has little to do with video cards, more just game-dev's decisions.
Anyway, I do agree that aesthetically and graphically modern games look generic and over-effected these days. No-one wants to experiment in the AAA market.
>The game is rendered in one of intended resolutions (640×480 here), then analog post-processing of monitor and high resolution camera integration and digital post-processing of photo resize tool is applied. The result is quite different from what you'd get by copying a video buffer (at roughly 800×600) directly. I'd say it's very high quality distance-agnostic smoothing with some anti-aliasing on low contrast edges.
1024x768 is the resolution/framebuffer.
The whole point is to play on a CRT, there's a thing called CRT dithering.
The framebuffer(s) is(are) actually 1024x(2x384) to be technically correct.

Post your set ups. Just revamped mine. Only thing missing now is a taller shelf with more rows. Might one day upgrade to a 20" PVM to replace my 24 inch WEGA. TV stand has wheels for ease of switching consoles between PVM and WEGA. PVM is 1344Q.

All 9 consoles are hooked up, power/video ready via a Component switch and Composite/S-Video switch. Saturn/Genesis require simple cable swap to switch between.

AV Fami- Composite
NES- Composite
N64- S-Video
Wii- YPbPr
Genny- YPbPr
Saturn- YPbPr
DC- S-Video
PS2- YPbPr

Note- HD Retrovision cables used for hassle-free RGB to Component.

Your setup is really similar to mine, but I have mine set up in a different way. I run my SCART consoles through an SCART switcher, into an SCART to Component transcoder, into a passive component switcher, into my PVM. PVM's outputs go out into my 20" Wega.

The Wega's IC's are dying, sadly, so I mostly just use the PVM these days. I also plan on replacing mine with a 20" PVM if I can ever find one that's affordable.
>5 inches CRT
I seriously hope YOU don't do this.
It's 10 inches, thankyouverymuch, and I'll have you know that it plays quite nicely from where I sit in my beanbag chair.
10 centimeters like your donger you dicklet.
