This board is for the discussion of classic, or "retro" games. Retro gaming means consoles, computer games, arcade games (including pinball) and any other forms of video games on platforms launched in 1999 and earlier. With the release of the 8th generation of consoles, the Sega Dreamcast will now be considered "retro", though the remainder of the sixth generation (Xbox, PS2, GameCube) will not.

Has anyone seen these games show up in their town? Why does this exist and why aren't more people talking about it?

It's obviously a custom coded application not pertaining to the original ROM.

From where were they deriving this supposed sponsorship funding then, and for what purpose?

It’s true, when it comes to classic games, europoors love to pretend their garbage was even compareable to NTSC land. Their computer games were hot garbage and their consoles ran games at 5/6 speed.

When it comes to classic games, Europe fucking sucks.

If it's not for you then it's not for you. The only thing that changes after the first stage is that it somehow gets EASIER in most of the other levels compared to the first.

Trying to get OpenTTD to run on my windows 98 CF-27 and I just can't make it past this screen. OpenGFX and SFX are in the right place, and if I copy it onto my windows 7 pc the game runs completely normally. It is the Windows 9X version so I don't know why it won't work. please help friends.

I will note other games like Diablo 2 run completely fine on it.

>spending your skekels on a PVM
you do realize PVMs are only for re-sale by scumbags that are aware of their prowess? Otherwise, you can visit any TV Studio, medical lab, condo security, area with security, stores, etc... Ask them if you can look at their trash. I found my PVM 20L5 at a shoppers drug mart after asking the manager if I could look at the security monitors they were trashing. There is absolutely no need to pay for PVMs - and the search for one ends up being worth it.

>being so poor you don’t understand the tradeoff of money for convenience
I paid $200 for my 20L5 back in 2014 and it was worth every penny because I didn’t have to spend months hunting for one driving from town to town, studio to studio. By the same logic you shouldn’t ever buy anything because you can scavenge literally anything if you just look hard enough
