GG 2020 Anonymous 10/03/2019 (Thu) 00:47:55 No. 75 [Reply]
Thoughts on the new GG? Honestly it looks way better than Xrd and I'm really excited.
Never played a GG game but they do look stylish
It looks way worse than #Reload or AC+, tho

Super Nintendo Thread Anonymous 10/06/2019 (Sun) 21:53:14 No. 99 [Reply]
This thread is for discussion of the Super Nintendo Entertainment System, also known as the Super Famicom and related games and accessories.
11 posts and 3 images omitted.
on 8chan's /vr/ board, there was a thread for archiving old ROM's. They posted NES and Genesis packs but I never checked back to see if SNES pack was posted before 8 got nuked. Did anyone save the SNES pack?
If you want roms check out this anon: https://the-eye.eu/public/rom/

They don't have everything but they have a ton.

>where to get roms
way back in the 56k / slow DSL days, I used to download individual titles from emuparadise. obviously that's gone down now. I got most of my fullsets over the past several years from archive.org and rutracker.
archive org is sort of a whack a mole game, as people will upload fullsets but they will get DCMAd, then another person will post etc. It's pretty great for old cartridge games, anything GBA or older you'll almost certainly find a fullset on there.
rutracker is pretty great for newer systems and disc-based sets. I got my PSX and Mega-CD fullsets from there within the past year. just search for "$systemname set", and there's lots of content.
The eye is pretty good for grabbing single roms here and there. I think you can script up a scraper with wget, but their collections aren't complete so it's not really worth it.
I've also used Vimm's lair and Edgeemulation for some stuff recently.
The hardest part about the fullsets is getting ~thousands of files unzipped and sorted them in some way that makes sense, is easily searchable, and doesn't have too many files in any one folder (some flashcarts have limitations on files per folder and don't accept zipped roms).
a quick DDG for "snes fullset archive org" ->
The "no intro" sets are a great place to start, as they don't have too many duplicates and have all the officially released games without much bullshit. The "goodset"s are great if you're looking for a more expansive collection that also includes romhacks, weird homebrews, and that sort of thing.

What do you think of the current state of the game?

Do you think it has much longer to live?
Here are some thoughts
>I Dislike Payload, because of the moving cart, several sections of the map become spam fests and are impossible to navigate through
>King Of The Hill has the same problem, except the flank routes are the only place were you won't get bombed by a billion rockets
>Attack/Defend's only decent map is Gravel-pit, because it's wide opened and multiple ways to get to the point
>Playstyles have been ruined by valve, because people complain about them
>Cosmetics used to be cartoony and look like something you would wear, now they are generic sets, aka millitary medieval, sports, cute, wintery,
>Halloween restrictions are retarded, you can dress as a yeti or wear skeleton masks, but a beanie is halloween only

>No new weapons despite the community constantly making great contributions that get ignored
>Phlog pyro is fucking cancer and can wipe out an entire server with a pocket medic
>Cheaters are rampant on the servers, demoniggers love using walls and there's always those spinbotters every fucking game
>Community market collapsed
>More hats
>No new comic
>Weapons that actually mattered are completely irrelevant
I believe by creating more items/ weapons (THAT ACTUALLY DO SOMETHING DIFFERENT) , maps, and cosmetics. They need to rebalance the classes (Demoshits and pyros)
also make the engineer have more options to "build" and rather than just being a boomstick fodder with a sentry.

Valve really needs to literally up their game.

Games where the defense stat means nothing Anonymous 09/28/2019 (Sat) 18:04:44 No. 59 [Reply]
Souls games and its various clones are an obvious example with armor in these games basically just working as visual customization pieces with some gimmicks like set bonuses attached to them. It's one thing to git gud to the point that you can just run around naked and throw dung pies at bosses in these games but it's entirely another thing when you realize the devs of these games always include certain armors that are very hard to get to make it seem like it's going to be the be all end all only to disappoint the player who will still get 2-shot by enemies even in the fancy armor. Post some other games where this shit happens because "the best defense is a great offense" is bullshit. Even in normie games like The Witcher 3 at least they made it so armor selection is almost entirely related to the build you are running so it's not just a cosplaying simulator.
Path of Exile has the evasion stat with similar problems. The main issues with evasion are that as a probabilistic all-or-nothing system it doesn't give you stable protection against one-shot boss attacks (aside from raising your crit avoidance chance) and that there are all sorts of spells and skills that are not considered attacks and as such do not interact with evasion at all. As a result, evasion has always been the red-headed stepchild of defenses in path of exile. Usually it's used either for Iron Reflexes builds (which convert evasion to armor for meteoric armor values and resultant physical resistance scores) or builds that use items to scale damage and movement speed off of your evasion score. But evasion is considered the worst choice as an actual defense.
That sounds like a stupid choice by the devs. The weirdest thing is the fact that a significant number of players often ask for even harder modes even under these conditions and defend what is actually poor balancing of combat mechanics to make a game seem more difficult. They are either looking for bragging rights on the internet for being able to beat a supposedly hardcore game (this is a major problem with the souls fandom even though I myself think the games are manageable) or they just cream their pants from the thought that noobs will suffer even more if the ultra nightmare modes they sperg about are implemented. People who ask for easy mode in Soulslike games annoy me but people who want them to tip the scales even less to your side are even more annoying. At least with the former they are basically asking for specific builds which are still well within the original combat design. Simply buffing enemy damage/defense/hp because normalfags want to see themselves as being hardcore gamers is gay.

how does it stack up with the nintendo switch?
I have the GPD 1 and it's pretty comfy, but I ended up not playing games on it much. It's too weak to play many N64 games fullspeed, at least with default retroarch settings. Handles SM64 perfect (easiest rom in my standard test), can't keep 60 in Rush 2049 (hardest test rom I use). Dpad is a little mushy but it's apparently fixable if you're willing to do a full disassembly to swap out the rubber mat and d-pad cross with a DS lite.

It's still pretty great if you just want a "laptop" to permanently leave in your bag. I use it for connecting through hotspot when I want a "real" web browser, and for doing minor edits to .cfg files or file management for MP3 players. I would not recommend the GPD Win 2 if it's still $800 or something nuts like that.

New 3DS homebrew & emulation experience Anonymous 09/23/2019 (Mon) 15:52:15 No. 39 [Reply]
How well does the New 3DS handle arcade emulation through the Retroarch FBA cores? Is performance good? Input lag acceptable? Would a Vita provide a better experience for arcade emulation?

I am considering picking one up as the prices decrease.

(phone gaming isn't an option. dumb phone for life)
3 posts omitted.
Play instead gameboy, gbc, gamegear, atari lynx, and stuff like that on handheld.
NES and PCE should work okay too, at least my DS Lite had no problems emulating them. But here the problem is the screen is too small, with sprites, text, and games designed for regular size TV.
Otherwise if you really *have* to play SNES on portable system, just build your own with an ARM SBC, screen, battery, enclosure, and other parts you chose yourself. Then at least you can pick hardware and not pay Nintendo or someone else lotsa money and still be stuck with a shitty mess of stuff to work around.

Bittboy (IPS) plays snes fullspeed with considerable frameskip. I'm 10 hours deep into FF6 on mine. RS-97 IPS plays non-chip SNES games fullspeed at ~$70. The RG-300 is a bit more tasteful and might start shipping with IPS (wait for confirmation), which would make it the best ~$70 option. The RG-350 just launched a few days and the GKD-350H is on its way, both of those should be <=$100 and have faster processors than the RS-97. There's also the option of raspberry pi handhelds, but you're either spending ~$100 and a bunch of soldering work or spending ~$300 for a prebuilt.

Check obscurehandhelds.com and dingoonity forums for information on the modern chinese emulation consoles. nice, high effort community but you can't call people faggots
also 4/vg/hbg, 4/vr/hbg and 4/vg/emugen but if you could post on 4cuck you probably wouldn't be here.
Was waiting for this anon, thanks!
I've heard citra can't run AC new leaf, is this still true? pretty much the only game I want to play
I played New Leaf recently, you can run it and most of the DLC to my understanding, it ran just fine.
