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.

You may as well play dino crisis and parasite eve while you're at it. I always play those plus some classicvanias around this time of year
What do you think a remake is, exactly?
Nope, I've played RE2, RE4, and made it halfway through RE5.
Aww man. Dino Crisus. A good retelling of that would nice.
I'd Hazard her Bio.

Is Powerslave "pistolstart"able? Can you just substitute the first level's map file with, like, 15th and just jack in without getting absolutely slaughtered?
No. The game is designed with the contrary in mind. Except from grenades you only can find each weapon once through the entire game.
Yeah. As in Quake's ep4.
Well, that sucks. Thanks for the info.
Try pistolstarting, for one.

Are lives in video games an obsolete feature?

The checkmark isn't the reward, it's just proof that you did a thing. Doing the thing is its own reward. A lot of times achievements will inspire me to play a game in a way I never thought to before or show me that something I thought was impossible can actually be done, which motivates me to try harder at it rather than giving up. You're confusing people who enjoy challenges and use achievements as a guideline for added challenges with people who buy games with a bunch of easy achievements in them just to boost their gamerscore or trophy collection.
People also find it more fun to not get challenged at all and just breeze through everything, press x to awesome and what not. They don't hate games but they treat them as shallow amusement closer to film where novelty and pretty visuals trump mastery and challenge. Not inherently bad, but this mentality is dominant especially today
No just the way I interpreted your post sounded like you disliked the rng shiftest of a game yet kept going to get that cheevo like a junkie. If you played because you enjoyed the bosses and challenge fair enough and my bad. There's too many platinum trophy grinding autists that don't even enjoy the games they're playing around

I love Street Fighter but not THAT much, especially not enough to own such a thing if I have no one ot play with.

If you can hack and do other things with these cabinets (like install SFA3 or SF3...or Tekken) then maybe I'm game.

gotta be contrarian over something, nothing ever works right and everything is shit because I say so.
Libretro itself is the shit, but the default ui on desktop is awful.

It is the best on Android though, but you have to use a Bluetooth controller with it.

When compared with standalone emulators other than dolphin, then it's honestly not that bad.

>to save the Dreamcast

place a bomb in Sony's headquarters. They really did pretty much what they could to use the transitional phase before the big boy with its ability to additionally also play the new media format would come out.
Pretty much the only thing i can think of would be to have given the DC this ability too, but at that time then they would not been able to sell them for that price.
> plan to save the dreamcast:
much like the saturn, it was an unimpressive performing console. nothing could save it or make it better. sega japan were out of control and wouldn't listen to anyone.
for a company like sega, who were (once upon a time) leaders in 3D gaming in arcades, they fucked up hard. it still amazes me all these years later how badly they fucked up.
I don't think sega did anything majorly wrong with the dreamcast itself, it was a good piece of hardware for a good price and a strong launch line up in the west.

I'd consider seeing if it was possible to appease EA to get them to develop for the DC for optics reasons and mass market appeal. Also do what it takes to get konami and squaresoft to make a game for it if at all possible. If konami didn't cancel their castlevania DC game that might have done something.

They never would have kept up with the ps2 but they could have lasted a bit longer
You can't say that, jfc don't you know anything?

45% smaller, 20 inbuilt games and original style controllers (though, they probably aren't and include the later version with the 2 analogue sticks)

but why? It dosn't even play CDs

I don't get it.

n64 and dreamscast I would understand, but a playstation!?

>i understand the hdmi sentiment but that's the standard for normies now. Most hdtvs are phasing out component. I was motherboard shopping today and most of them did not have vga, just hdmi.

You are most certainly correct. I Know Nvidia gpus have stopped with all analog support as of the GTX 10 series. TVs don't come with analog anymore either. My angle is really odd. I don't own a single LCD except this 144 hz asus monitor, which I use sideways for shit-posting. I still game on a CRT monitor and a CRT tv for my consoles. I am not the norm, and I understand this, and am OK with it. I still own a few PSX that still work, and am not a huge psx fan, but I can see where many people my age would want this (early 40s). This was one of the first really good systems that featured quality adult content. Things like Resident Evil blew the doors off of anything ever imagined before. Certainly an Iconic system.

>It means no Ape Escape on the console.
I was more focused on the lack of factual knowledge about the PSX controller, and the later release of the dual analog. The comment section is full of a bit of misinformation involving the controller. Some contend it was released with the PSX, while others are aware that it was a later peripheral. There is a reason why there is no Dual shock. It is a mix of costs and profits & potentially something with future plans. (Dual shock Upgrade: Only $39.99)
Only one i would give a shit for is Saturn, currently there no emulators that do it justice.
Unfortunately knowing Sega, they'd cheap out and just license the Saturn brand out to AtAt Games.
This concept was hardly noteworthy until NIntendo's arbitrary shortage of the NES Classic Mini made them sought after. Video game SoCs are not new, true, but they didn't take off as anything but toy aisle clutter until the NES Classic Mini.

Rom Depot owner here. I had a couple questions for you guys if you could help me out. I haven't done much with the site in a while but I was hoping to get some insight on how to improve it.

The first question is, how slow is the site for you? The hard drive I'm using is on its last leg. The clicking and grinding have actually woken me up at night, so that's no doubt a problem. I install cable professionally and have ensured everything network related is up to par so I'm sure anything speed related is not due to that. To put a stop to server abuse, I've had to put a limit on download speed. Apache has a "burst" mode which allows unlimited speed for a few seconds before limiting it down to a specified speed. I have 22 mbps of upload to work with here so in theory the max download speed on your end would be 2.75 MBps. Not bad considering they're typically small roms. When DOCSIS 3.1 is finally released in my area it'll be a different story. But in the meantime, as it stands, is it unbearable? Do you not use it because of that?

My second question, do you actually use it? According to the counter, I have 50k people who have visited before. I do not count repeat visits based on IP, but of course, IPs can change. There are also bots that are counted in too, but just to get an idea, do any of you use it as your go-to site? If not, why? What do your usual sites offer that you'd like to see mine have?

Damn, thanks for reminding me. I've been busy on getting the server back to normal it completely slipped my mind. I'll replace it when I'm off work.
There is for regular roms, but not for hacks/ translations

Crystal Warriors. I would spend hours tethered to a wall adapter playing it.

Dragon Crystal was also great, and I had two or three Sonic games I played through several times. I remember Shinobi on it being kinda lame actually.
I really liked star wars on the game gear. It was a really good platformer.

This game is so good it's a crime. I honestly can't think of a single complaint.
Honestly, I think the game gear had the best Mighty Morphin Power Rangers game. I enjoyed it a lot more than the genesis one, at least.

So I'm hoping one of you guys can help me or at least point me in the right direction.
I have a PSOne sitting in a box for years now.
I got it from a guy and it never worked.
Plugged it in and the power light goes on but that's about it.
No A/V and no disk drive movement.

Upon a recent further inspection I've noticed the power adapter for the damn thing is actually one from a PSP (it outputs 5v instead of 7.5)

My questions are as follow.
Would getting a correct power supply fix my other issue?
If not do you have any idea what could be causing it?

And no, I don't want to throw it away.
14 replies omitted. Click here to view.
Here's hoping everything is fine.
Technology is weird at times.
A quick search on eBay shows me they are in the range of $10-15, but I wont be buying anything else until the supply arrives and I'll at least get A/V out of it.
Or at least I hope.

I don't actually need it either, I already have a PS2 to play PS1 games but I figured I'd try my best to make it work before calling it quits.
It really was a retarded question no doubt.
>A quick search on eBay shows me they are in the range of $10-15
Those are not genuine, I can almost guarantee it.
That I can believe.

Quake uses .mdl, not .md2.
I think Quake II uses .md2.
Yeah, as another anon said, looks like a typical Quake map. Whether you should consider it a compliment or criticism, I have no idea.
You're correct, but there's no major difference between making something for mdl and md2.

You're constrained to some lower limits, but that's an artistic challenge, not a challenge unique to blender.
This looks a bit like that room from E4M2 with a shambler immediately under the pool, except the horizontal beams don't seem to be walkable?
Actually, if the beams aren't walkable, why are they even there? What for?
