Im about to get a wii that has no controls, I dont care about the wiggling and I would like yo use a pc bluetooth controller, does anyone know if with nintendont is this possible?
You are absolutely going to need a Wiimote and either a classic controller or an IR bar to set it up. I doubt that your bluetooth controller will work at all, but lots of 8bitdo's controllers have Wiimote mode. Someone else may be able to tell you if they're good enough to use for all phases of the modification process.
I dont have the 8bit do controllers,the wii bar is included, can I setup it up with that?|
I might be able to borrow one wiimote to set up the bluetooth controllers I hope it works
No. You're going to need a Wiimote or something Wiimote compatible to navigate the menus. Once you get it modified you can use Priiloader to go straight to the HBC or some other app that you can use a GameCube controller or compatible which eliminate the wireless input lag but I'm pretty sure Wii doesn't support regular Bluetooth at all.
I see, thanks

This was without a doubt the best 3d jrpg to come out on ps1. The only complaints I see people crying about are.
>Oh the story is like a whole 2 pages long if you try to explain it
The game is like 40 hours so i never understood why people cry about this
>But muh trigger is better because i said so !
This was never valid but said pretty often
>Combat is shit
Combat was actually a nice change and very different from what other jrpgs were doing.

Over all it was a great game filled with a ton of detail. Sadly Chrono Trigger fans got butt hurt all their pals are confirmed dead.

it would have been a passable 8/10 game if it didn't have the chrono name.

As a Chrono game its a 6 max
I don't like how you visit viper manor, death island, dragon fort twice
I know it's optional but the game feels repetitive.
Cross is the reason I finished Trigger, without references to look for I would have never made it through that borefest.
what's even the logic here

that post says more about you than about chrono cross

I was wondering how long it would be before you showed up. Yeah no wonder you didn't want to make more of these at first, I probably spent every night for like two weeks working with these. I wish I took wood shop.
Listen to this guy. I used to have such a shit time wondering what to do with my controllers. I went to Ikea and bought a Kallax, put my TV on top, consoles in the spaces and in two of the spaces I bought fabric boxes to throw all of my controllers in. Never been happier with my setup.
arent you worried about analog sticks being mushed against other controllers?

How the hell do you get a decent personality in this damn game? Every answer combination saddles you with shit stats.
3 replies omitted. Click here to view.
The game is incredibly easy, you can statpad your characters by abusing sugoroku if that's your thing.
You roll a female Hero. I think in the English version the best personality was Sexy?
Yeah, it gives the best offensive stats. I think there was another one for defensive characters.

On topic, you should just answer honestly and play like that. The game's easy enough and there are ways to change it later.
This. The role-playing is part of it, and sometimes your dudes are retarded. You gotta roll WITH the dice.
No bullshit, I got valiant first try.
It might have been biased because when I was the well demon I knew it was a test and didn't kill anyone except the guy who fought me.

Why were sprite comics such a popular thing in the late 90s/early 2000s? These seem like a phenom totally exclusive to one generation of people. I wonder how they would have been different in the internet as it currently exists.

I'd say it was more of a gradual increase in quality that never really stopped. Comics 100-200, for instance, are not near the level of quality that the later stuff is. It got good for a sprite comic very early on, but the later stuff was more than just good for a sprite comic or good for a webcomic.

My favorite
Friday bump
Final bump- it was fun while it lasted.

Let's talk about Xen. Was it really that bad?
Yes and no.

-The big teleporter/entering Xen was good
-Using the long jump hinted at in the tutorial was cool
-The levels are generally quite interesting and varied
-It's the hardest part of the game
-It has good atmosphere and the build up of going to space was satisfying

-It can be confusing and overwhelming
-The Gonarch fight is alright but can be buggy
-Nhilanth can be frustrating with the teleport attack
-The platforming in that manta ray area is too annoying
-The factory part is also too annoying
Boring, we just had this thread last week

No. It's okay. It feels thin and contrived a lot of the time, but it's also full of weirdness and wonder. Overall, it's okay.
Yes, just like the rest of the game.
Yeah Interloper was a pile of shit. The rest of Xen is just sort of dull when it comes after the likes of Surface Tension and Lambda Core.

I'm really liking the game so far, the atmsophere is great, the only problem I have is that it lacks direction. Half the time I have no idea where to go or what I'm supposed to be doing.

By the way, I'm afraid I'm stuck already. I'm in the mines and there's this room with the propeller blades I can't get through, the air just sucks you in. I guess I have to deactivate the propellers somehow? Is there something I'm missing?
Well, I made it past that spot.
Apparently you need to strafe while going thorugh the airstream.
I don't think it's very intuitive, but ok.
it gets better; the first few maps are kinda holdovers from when it was basically just Quake.
It's definitely unique. The atmosphere is unmatched. Savor it boys.

It's not a perfect game, but I heard it once said that you never really beat Unreal, only survive it.
i got stuck in that water temple and I never played the game again, I don't get the hype.

I bought this crt solely because it had an hdmi port. It's a strange beast. Picture is pretty good for a tube, 240p looks better on my 32" Toshiba. I wanted this for use in a mame cab.

> I wanted this for use in a mame cab.

You fucked up. HD CRTs are only useful for HD content, their SD support is generally bad.
enjoy your input lag OP
27 inch is awfully big for an arcade cabinet don't you think? You should have just hooked your PC up to it and sent it 640x480@60khz with a simple scanline filter in an emulator. If you do that, you'll get results that are very close to good 240p and it'll be a lot less hassle to set up. It's generally considered better to just use a VGA CRT for this kind of an application since it'll support way more various resolutions so you won't end up with as big a black bars in a lot of games but you could be waiting a while to find such a big VGA CRT. It's not going to be as bad as Anon is telling you but don't hook real consoles up to it. This is a screen for progressive scan signals only. Full stop. If you want to play retro games on it, do it through emulation.

Watcher's Keep is good. But I always play it as part of SoA, before killing Irenicus at the end.
Ironically, because it is a D&D game, Fighter is the best class in all the Baldur's Gate games. I mean, mages are awesome too, but Fighters are always strong, and have the best epic level abilities.
He has a good class combo. Fighter thief takes a while to get rolling though, so most people never bothered to get him there.

Fighter thief is just a good combo, because it makes those backstabs reliably hit, and hit hard. And there aren't many NPC options.
he's great, remember to keep a plate mail in inv as a backup fighter, you can put it on right after backstabbing the bastards

Currently playing this on my Gameboy SP, as a kid I sucked dick at it, but coming back to it recently I've enjoyed it so much and love the turn based card game nature of the game.

Anyone else still play it?

I beat the story mode and unlocked all the extra characters that are possible on the first play through, just having fun playing in free battle mode now though, managed to go for a win streak of 10 with the OP vegito, levelled him up to LV4 now, though now the battles seem to be a lot harder and even with his insane stats he's not doing enough damage to characters.

Anyway DBZ Legendary Super Warriors thread.

It's all about doing max damage per CC, and always blocking or dodging your enemies attacks.

To do that you just need to take advantage of the attack up and defence up boosts you get from the positions on the battlefield. e.g. if you're attacking be forward, defending be backwards, and if you can try to knock your enemy into the air if you use beam attacks as that gives max damage and keep them on the ground for physical attacks. You also really need to spend time building your deck, status cards are very useful for de-buffing your enemy permanently.

Also make sure you use the "limit" section on each character, in that you can place 3 attacks that you can use an infinite number of times when you power up.

Also the bigger the QTE the more CC it gives you and you get longer to input the commands if you're closer to your enemy, so put a 5 stage attack in your limit and just continually use that to gain CC quickly.

Below is a pretty good walkthrough that shows you how to unlock most things on your first playthough:


On NG+ you can unlock all the enemy characters.
I love this game to death and still play it often I'd say my favorite to use is Vegito just for that Atomic break skill

I'm trying to unlock his flash sword and atomic breaker now, it's such a pain. I've been lucky and got tail for Gohan and Super Ghost Kamikaze for Gotenks, , but have fought vegito so many times and not got anything decent from him.
See I could never get tail but I got a lucky opening for Atomic Break early on

>tfw just got atomic break and p comet z. Looks like my luck is changeing.

Also is there any general advice for what stats to buff when you level up? For vegeto I did one of each, but with goku just dumped all in health which seems to make things much easier.

>game has headphone sound option

Used to love the sound test option in Sonic. I have a pair of "Shure" headphones I bought from a local music store for like $30-something iirc? I'm not an audiophile, but they get the job done.
$30 cans are okay and do the job, but the sound on $100 studio headphones will be noticeably better for everyone.

After that, you get only marginal improvements to sound quality while going above $100 (only the most discriminating users will care at this point).
just curious, how is it different?

This is a /vr/ thread, so try to keep it retro (nothing past CV on the Dreamcast)

D-pad is always the best for tank controls, good taste.
Scrapping 1.5 outside of that I'd say some of the confusion around shipping RE around to different consoles around CV up until RE 4. But that's not retro territory.
The multiplayer oriented game.

That is where the knife goes.
