There was a thread a while back where I learned about turning a cheap WWE Brawl Stick into a badass fight stick. Well I finished mine and here it is. I used Seimitsu buttons and an LS-32-01 stick. The parts took a month to arrive from Akishop, which would have bugged me if I hadn't spent that entire time on the faceplate. First I painted it but that looked like shit. Then I fumbled with several vinyl car wrap attempts until I got it right. Well, almost right. It's a little janky around the screw holes. I should have cut them wide enough to completely clear the screw heads, but to hell with it, my parts arrived and I had enough with waiting days for 3M sheets to arrive from amazon and then spending hours carefully cutting them.

Anyway, Fight Stick thread?
How's it feel anon?
I also picked up the wwe brawlstick years ago because some store on ebay was selling two of them bundled for 40 bucks. I've always wanted to do the mods you've done, but the parts cost a lot to ship to my country.

Good shit anon. Have you been able to play anything on it yet?

I recently put a Dominux8 in my VLX to give leaf switches a try and I've been enjoying it especially for action platformers. I'm debating putting in leaf switch buttons as well.

Can someone explain to me what the fuck is with the ridiculously obscure method to beat the game in Takeshi's Challenge? How exactly did they expect gamers to figure this out?

Why are people spamming this phrase constantly lately? Like I know it's always been in use but recently people are being really obnoxious about it. Are you specifically trying to kill it? Is that the goal?

It's like that with every meme ever. People see it being used and start to use it as well to feel validated and part of the cool kids. /sp/ is complete cancer with this shit.
Hating modern technology and the idea of putting on make-up(at least the synthetic kinds) automatically means you're redpilled.
I don't think so. The Luddite way of life might have its appeal and novelty, but its hardly without its shortfalls, such as tending to stick to old methods regardless of the circumstances and at times an ardent fear of new things. Oh, and wearing makeup(and in addition, dying your hair) does not objectively decrease the value of one's life, contrary to what many bitter asshats on /b/, /v/, /sp/, /bant/ and some on /pol/ like to spout.
People actually use /bant?

How many of Tails and Rouges levels were made for Eggman and Knuckles?
Dont know. That trailer showed little of Eggman and just a bit of Knuckles in Pumpkin Hill, i think.
This game is a stupid piece of shit. My cock is so fucking large and thick, and this game sucks it all the way down. The only fun levels were Dr. Scrotehead's Cosmic Bridge.
only sonic game I ever played and I like it
replayed it like 8 years ago
>Sonic Adventure 2
Hated it. had to force myself to finish it. Was an utter disappointment in every way. The story was a new level of suck as far as what should be expected of a Sonic game. Adventure 1 had the right amount of goofiness and light drama. 2 was too tryhard and not only wasn't a good fit for Sonic but just poorly written in general. Hated the hunting and mech stages. Speed stages were a goddamned snooze and offered me nothing in terms of exploration or excitement or wonder oranything. I'm not a scorefag so trying to get high ranks wasn't even a priority to me giving me no reason to plod through the shitty game more than I had to.

>Sonic Heroes
Got this game a little bit later since, like I said, I had dropped Sonic. I had heard how bad it was but one day I saw it for cheap so I got it.
Better than SA2 that's for goddamn sure. Only thing was some of the stages seemed to drag on too long. Story was back to being the perfect blend of light drama and fun. The levels again were a bit too much like running down a funnel and AGAIN meant more for OCD scorefags than playing because the world and controls are actually fun. It had way more whimsy than SA2 though. Playing as the other characters didn't break the flow either since they basically only served as cosmetic and plot differences from Sonic's main team. The Chaos emerald stages were a fucking mess, I do remember hating those a bit.

>Sonic 06
I was super hyped for this. There was a playable demo that honestly looked like a return to form for the games. We know how that turned out. Every bad thing that magazines and youtubers say about it are absolutely true. Zero redeeming features

All in all, there's a reason Generations gets praise. Its the closest they've come to making 3D Sonic work and there's no fucking reason it took them that long to get so close considering SA1 was a perfect first stab at it.

So guys... i FUCKING DIT IT... i fucking fixed my Snes that was having audio problems.

I posted a few days ago but thread died, anyways, this console ive found for the cheap was having an audio problem with every game, its like it was missing a complete audio channel, some games i couldnt hear any music at all, others i could only her the SFX.

Tried replacing the S-MIX and NEC chips using a dead donor board i had, but no luck.

So yesterday i finally decided to say fuck it, i cant use it in this state anyways so why not try to fix it by doing something i wasnt sure i had the skills to do, i decided to swap the S-APU chip from the one on the dead board and it fucking worked.

I have some experience sodlering but i wasnt confident i could pull this off because i dont have the right tools to do it, i have one of those cheap soldering irons with a conical tip, i had a heat gun tho.

Anyways now its fucking working perfectly, first time i come across a Snes with a faulty chip, the other boards were dead due to severe corrosion.

Repair General Thread i guess...

Might try going over the save chip with fresh solder
That tip is horrible but good job.

Buy yourself a proper iron please as a reward.
Ever try and replace the save chip from one game to another? I know some N64 games are starting to die out due to bad save chips.

Well, after doing some trace tracking, I noticed this has to be it, but all the conections were fine, until I took a look to the under side of the board.

There were some severed traces, after patching them with some thin wires from a broken xbox duke controller cable, the thing began working again.

Pics of before and after, I apologize for my shitty soldering, I'm still a noob at this.

Thanks guys!

That was so retarded. When I was I kid I went through the four campaigns of SoD without being aware of that fact and had to replay them because of that.
Thanks for all the work you guys are putting into this.

Are there any good F-Zero like games that can help fill the empty void until Nintendo eventually makes a sequel? I know people like to compare it to Wipeout, but having played both, I don't consider them even remotely similar besides their core premise.

I'd rather the former. I'm just letting OP know.
Extreme G would be your closest bet, especially on the N64.
I'm not a fan of XG, personally. I find that its unusually hard to stay off the walls, and the life bar seems to be entirely pointless. Feels more like slot cars than F-Zero
aerogage? I never gave it much play but i remember you could be a n64 controller
Hover racing on the ps1 is legit.

And therefore okay to beat up, right?

The Sonic Master System trilogy is so good. I love these every bit as much as the Genesis trilogy.

What are some lesser-known games from popular franchises that you love?
39 replies and 3 images omitted. Click here to view.
Western crap.
Not less known, but I loved Lion King for the Master System. And Alex Kidd Shinobi World that was much better than original.
Sonic 1 and 2 were good too. Have more nostalgia for 1 because is more memorable with Bridge, Jungle and Sky Base
Do you hate 2 because of the hang glider? Or it is Scrambled Egg your nightmare?

8bit Castle of Illusion was so damn good.

Sky Base, that fucking track.
I personally never knew about Green Hills or Mecha Hills track until Sonic Jam showing CD stuff.

Always thought of them as 5, because Triple Trouble was a 8bit for a portable master system.
I still say SMS Castle of Illusion is a better game over the 16bit version
Mess with an amazing soundtrack.
And an hilarious intro.

Keep it retro, guys. I'll start with something that isn't retro yet though. Hopefully you'll concede me that much; let's start with my stuff, then please proceed to add more and maybe why not talk about games and chill a little.

Battle Corps for Sega CD is one of those with a better soundtrack than the actual game itself.

I don't know how to classify it either. It doesn't match the game at all. Its all cool smooth jazz/rock stuff but the game is shooting and explosions.

The japanese ones fully qualify as JRPGs, therefore they're JRPGs.

Sorcerer's Kingdom is one of the overlooked Genesis RPGs and one of my favorites on the system. It's a turn-based strategy RPG where you control a group of adventurers and go on little quests to increase your rank within the kingdom. A story develops over time, but for most of the game, the quests are discrete adventures that don't have much to do with each other; you're just ridding the land of evil and exploring.

It's a lot of fun, there's a real sense of adventure to it and more people need to check it out.
That's why I like them. They're much more enjoyable now that they include content specifically for fujoshi :-)

>I'm talking about every bombable wall and every burnable bush
You're literally complaining about exploring for secrets in an adventure game, lol

>Explore in an adventure game? Get real
It's okay, adventure games aren't for the impatient anyway.

This is 4chan, wasted time is beyond irrelevant. Your ignorance of the laissez faire simplicity of earlier adventure titles and your refusal to accept anything that doesn't hold your hand the whole way means you're entitled trash

No big deal though, it's not like you were ever going to beat these types of games yourself considering your whining blatantly ignores what was an industry standard. Stop watching eplebs
There's no deleting here.
Fixed a typo. As you can see, I can and have.

What a weird fixation.

The latter.
The Lost City was already in Thief The Dark Project, you uncultured taffer.
SO who is going to kick off our collab mission?

Can somebody who is adept in dromed outline a mission size/template or something?
It's low budget as fuck, so I doubt it'll lose money. And it looks like it's actually pretty solid.
He's talking about the commission you can take for Lord Gervaisius about collecting masks in the Lost City for like 150 Gold while shopping before the mission.

Talk about it.

I was in awe of its story 15 yrs ago and even tried to write an extended, deeper and longer plot. In it, the story didnt end with killing Energy Spirit, and the hero must understand what went wrong.
The story left a bad taste in my mouth when I finally replayed it years after I got older but I still find it very fun to play and enjoy how I can beat the whole thing within one afternoon. The ost is one of my favorite vgm osts and I still play it every now and then. Sad that this isn't a much talked about game outside of "yet another LTTP clone".
If you like the plot of Crusader of Centy, the eroge visual novel Monster Girl Quest has a similar theme of "Humans and monsters can coexist".

Thanks anon. I bought it to replace an HD CRT for modern content but ended up pairing it with an OSSC so I could use it for classic stuff too. And since then for some reason I've mostly been using it for Sega Genesis and 80s/90s anime.

I really enjoy 240p on it but I'm not a fan of 480i. The OSSC deinterlace method for 480i creates an eye-melting shimmer effect. It's also the only thing I miss the HD CRT for. The 200 pound POS was too laggy for classic games and could only play newer stuff in 1080i but it could perform miracles on 480i content.
The ending made me kind of melancholy. The guy goes on this huge adventure, sends monsters back to their own world or whatever, saves the world and changes the past. He's this hero who has done so much, and nobody will ever know, because he goes to a past where the things he did never really happened.
