Sup /vr/
I want to get some nice CRT-display for my retro gaming rig, preferably with accurate colors.
So, at the moment I'm choosing between Samsung 959NF and Viewsonic GF775.
Which one is better, or maybe both are terrible choice and I should look for something else?
959NF's specs look great, it's an aperture grille tube with pretty dense stripes, can do pretty high resolution/refresh rates including 1920x1440@73Hz.

For colour accuracy, calibrate it yourself.

Is the Amiga version the correct version to play?
9 replies and 1 image omitted. Click here to view.
a500 version is fine. Just don't play the AGA version.
Why? I was actually going to try the cd32 version, didn't know there was one.
And aren't AGA versions supposed to have better graphics or something?
I thought most of us on /vr/ were Euros.
It's very zoomed in. You don't see much.
There is also a fan remake for PC, but I think it's very ugly.
The graphics are a bit better yeah but it doesn't play as well.
See if you can find a pirate copy of the Amiga OCS version that doesn't have the invisible wall glitch though. Irwin once said that bug was deliberate, and would only show up when someone pirated the game, and only in the later stages too. The AGA version doesn't suffer from it, not sure about other versions.

There is a Contra Doom mod, yes. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b6sWdTePT1s
OP don't look like it tho
Where'd you place Apocalypse and One in there?
You can count the number of FPS the Japs have made on one hand dude.

Neo Contra is easily one of the top 5 over-head shooters of all time. It's only competition is Outzone, Shock Troopers, and maybe Nex Machina.
>maybe Nex Machina
There's no 'maybe' about it. Nex Machina is the greatest overhead shooter of all time. Hell it's the greatest shmup of all time period. It's the fucking GOAT. FACT.

It wasn't

Replaying all of the neo geo renditions of Metal Slug (via emulator bc poor fag) and I was curious to know how /vr/ would rate them from best to worst?

Currently on the 4th entry (including X aka v.2.1) and I have to say so far 3rd is my least fav just bc it appears to be made with full intent to kill you whenever possible. Nothing new but it seems the reaction time was removed to some of these scenarios/boss battles, but otherwise a good game nontheless.

Also so far I'd say X > 1 > 2 > 3

They're honestly fairly interchangeable.

>Overclocking a neo geo

I feel like that could kill your MVS in the long run. If you get your hands on that MVS flash cart then the patched metal slug 2 is probably the best way to play it.


Nevermind I guess. I thought we were talking about original hardware now that the flashcart is out.

Oh Im sure plenty of people will SAY they have. but they're liers
>via emulator bc poor
Metal Slug runs like ass on a Neo Geo. Don't worry about it being on an emulator, it's way more fun.
It's a sluggish game series

I've seen people calling other weebs here for liking anime por posting morecrap but this is a new low for me
>So a person who likes Japanese arcade games but doesn't give a shit about anything else (like living there or anime) is now a "weeabo"?
he said weeaboshit arcade, he didnt' call anyone a weeb
snes and gnes are also both weebshit for example, this is nothing new
Liking something, ANYTHING, only if it is Japanese should definitely send alarm bells ringing for the person probably being a huge weeaboo.

And learn to spell weeaboo right, fucking newfag.
Then I am the world's first wapanese that dislikes anime lol

Not really, I just tolerated them.

But is it balanced for lean?
Loved em. Backing up the other anons ITT who say they were perfect for the fixed camera games that had them.

I wish there were more games like that. RE, PE, DC.

So does /vr/ like or hate altered beast? I personally like it but it’s a meme game at this point. And how do you feel about the pc engine ports? Or the nes version with 3 new levels
93 replies and 9 images omitted. Click here to view.
Other games like Altered Beast:
Kung Fu Master, Splatterhouse
AB has autoscrolling and "looping" so it's not exactly like these two but I'm sure everyone gets the point
I think you feel this way since you don't have to hit enemies very many times to kill them like in later "belt scroller" type of beat'em ups. But earlier titles like this usually are more like this; remember it has autoscrolling and you can't move around, gang ups would be retarded if the game wasn't like this.
CZ is a hybrid action adventure with a beat em up, so listing it as that is fine. You need a reputable source that says AB isn't one.
I don't see how anyone could argue that a game where you mainly move and punch + kick enemies (this is all you can do in your base form and there isn't really any platforming even if you can jump to dodge enemies) is not a beat'em up, yeah
Beat it the first time I played it on the Genesis. Was way to easy to be a pack in. But the game was a huge hit at least locally in arcades so it made sense for it to be the pack in.

If you're into wrestling games, Hal Wrestling is basically just Fire Pro - was developed by Human, even. The All Japan game and Pocket Pro Wrestling: Perfect Wrestler are also good.

can also vouch for aliexpress availability of cave noir, probably cheaper than etsy

Why is it so despised?

Nah I'm shit at FPS games and I generally avoid endless time-sink type games. My fall 2017 games have been Shadow of War and The Fractured But Whole though I've already beaten and uninstalled the latter.
lol Why do you act as if you don't know emulators exist
i do. and this is what i tell the obese neckbeards at the flea market when they try to charge over ebay for shit they tripped over in their attic or basement and had to whip out their phone to check the "value" of
Doesn't change the fact that they can play it. And stuff like input lag on emulators is less of an issue on a game like EB.

Doesn't this board accuse emulators of being mostly a thing for normies, or at least normie gamers? You can play this game for free on a phone. Not that I like that shit, but it can be done.

Which do you prefer? Or if you really want to, which is "objectively the best"? Argue your position. For bonus points tell us how your preferred home computer is better than the NES/SMS.

>he thinks the floppy drive being a computer in itself is a good idea
Owned a C64, never heard of the Spectrum except when written about in British magazines and only later found out it was a system developed in the UK. I can't enjoy the games, its graphics are just too limited for me. However, I like some of its music, though I still prefer the SID.

For what purpose?
I was more talking about the datasette. But yeah, the floppy drive was an expensive son of a bitch.
C64. Not even worth debating.
>tell us how your preferred home computer is better than the NES/SMS.
Apples and oranges. I love the 64, NES and SMS as they all have different types of games.
Alas, I have never seen Speccy in action.

Almost every guy on my class had a C64.

Hive hunt is pretty profitable, I profit from the gold and the creature products alone, let alone the rare drops that occur quite frequently
I tried doing the quest for the foxtail amulet, but almost got killed when I got stuck between a bunch of mobs. Yeah I know pretty bad.

If anyone wants to help out later on, it would be cool.

Can you also team up against the bosses btw?

Played Zezenia back in 2009 or so. It was okay. Can't even recall why I stopped playing though. Think they even reset progress of everyone at one point.

Would post a screen from it but that doesn't sit right when in a general for an other game.

Some old tibia screen instead.

>having to trust your blocker to share info on the monster loot with you
Couple old time hunts those fucking knights were keeping it all for sure.
I wish I knew of a site that was just a big gallery of people's old Tibia screenshots. I had hundreds of them that I no longer have.

You can just switch the region after booting the PAL ROM, the game is not in any way optimized for 50Hz except for the CRAM dots thing.

>implying they tried with this
/vr/ is getting tired of you asking about other people's opinions on games when there's already a bunch of generic threads with the same wording up. Figure shit out for yourself and then come discuss what you liked and didn't.
The game was literally programmed by chinks

Same reason why the pc engine remake of ninja gaiden has fucked up parallax

This better be arcade perfect and have good netcode

You really should get Capcom's dick out of your mouth.
If you want to pay forty bucks for a bunch of roms, go ahead. Don't expect everyone to have your low standards.
MAME doesn't work right for me so buying them on Steam is a great alternative.
original? nigga she in final fight 2, just like guy in final fight 1. and guy cool. bitch
Her design is original. She's a ninja that is an ex-biker gang leader who fights with tonfas. You don't see that combination very much. And she's blonde, not your typical black hair Asian ninja.

What is Guy? Dark hair ninja that just uses his fists and feet. Yawn. There's a reason he was cut from the SNES port of FF instead of Cody or Haggar.
Hadou Ken!!!!!
