This thread is dedicated to the Nintendo DS. Say something nice about it.
2 posts and 1 image omitted.
3DS is easy to homebrew and get free games. Although the only actually good ones are New Leaf and Smash and those are both dead. DSi - The rich kid's DS it has a camera DS Light- It can play GBA games. DS - It exists.

psp is better
My old flash cart (Acekard 2) is busted. Might get another one, but only if it can natively run GBA games.

Starbound /pol/ mod Anonymous 04/23/2020 (Thu) 22:39:02 ID:9b6c46 No. 599 [Reply] [Last]
I'm making a mod that adds Whites into starbound, with White European guns like the AR15
good post but take it to /v/. also explain what starbound is. this is a 30yo boomer website and we don't keep up with what the zoomers are playing
>>600 not op but starbound feels like dwarf fortress for retards. better graphics and less complexity essentially. not a great game, but not terrible either
Too diverse for me to enjoy. I tried playing it but the grind was dull and felt unrewarding.

adventures in Vita land Poking around at the vita. Never did too much with it but I like to check in every 12-18 months to see what's new. Unfortunately it seems retroarch snes still kinda sucks, same crap where you have a choice between snes2002 that's glitchy as hell visuals with weirdly bent sound, and snes2005 that looks nice but also has fucked up sound since it chugs all over the place. It seems like now there's a plugin to do overclocking, so maybe that will finally make 2005 playable. Aside from the main crap about the snes emulator, I've encountered a couple minor frustrations that have generally reminded me of why I've left this thing to sit in its case for so long. I popped out the memory card to put some files on, but realized it's some proprietary shit. So then I went to FTP, but got frustrated at the very bad performance. So then I managed to get USB file transfers working on linux (fuse-exfat doesn't work, have to build exfat-nofuse and run manually). but THEN I found that the files are getting silently corrupted in transit, even after updating to the latest version of Vitashell. I check the md5, transfer it to the vita, then transfer the file back to the PC and find it has a different hash. shit's fucked. Occasionally a ~30 MiB file will get through fine but anything larger than 100 MiB or so gets fucked. So I set up a dedicated wifi N router on my desk and I can now FTP reliably, but it's only averaging ~900 KiBs. Takes a full hour to put on a game . and now I'm fucking paranoid so it's going to take me a whole another hour to transfer it back so I can check the hash, since "vita homebrew checksum" isn't returning any results. fuck this gay earth

alright well I've had a few md5sum failures as well on FTP. wonder if the flash on the memory card is all fucked up? I ordered one of those SD2Vita devices in the meantime, they've now been out for a while so the hardware and software should have all the kinks worked out. In the meantime I'm going back to USB since if both USB and FTP are fucked then I might as well use the faster of the two.
(34.95 KB 675x176 fucking-sonyggers.png)
okay fucking hash errors left and right. transfer a ~3 GiB game three times, get three different checksums. I bought the fucking 64 GB sony proprietary crap card and apparently those stupid nip zipperheads were too dumb to implement wear leveling correctly. it's a known issue. fuck this gay earth.

I was having some trouble after upgrading my hacked switch from 6.2.0 to 9.2.0 so I could play newer games. As the first step, I upgraded newest atmosphere when I was still on 6.2.0 . This broke every single one of my games other than retroarch and made them unable to launch. That's when I knew it was going to take more digging to deal with this bullshit. Upgrading to 9.2.0 through Choi still left everything broken, instead of fixing it. Fuck. It turns out my problems WERE caused by my tranny pozzware and changing to NEUTOS did fix it. Thanks, based NEUTOS spammer. I guess the tranny squad started putting in extra work to sabotage those evil pirates or something. Some packages show up as 'bad nca signature - possibly malicious" when you try to install them with Tinfoil. About half of what I can find online don't trip this error, I think they are clean, signed nintendo eshop nsps. For most of the recent, in-demand games I can only find packages that trip this NCA signing error, I think these are converted XCI -> NSPs. It's always a bit of an annoyance to update, which is why I try to only do it about once a year/18 months to play the accumulated new releases. The problem with dropping out of the scene and not paying attention in those 18 months can mean that you miss out on a bunch of context when it is time to upgrade though. For now I'm set since I'm on a reasonably-recent firmware now, all my old games work, and I can install new games.

I've had an NS-Atmosphere dongle for a while now, but never used it. I just got it working now for payload injection for my current setup and figured I'd share. By default this shipped with ~something~ on it, it would succeed in launching a payload but the switch would just display some error message. So I set about looking to upgrade the payload on the dongle. The website offers a download for an updater that works on Ubuntu AMD64, a nice surprise. I downloaded the file 'ns-atmosphere-programmer-ubuntu-64bit-v01.zip', extracted it, then chmod +x and ran it from terminal. It wouldn't run barfed out some bullshit message about not finding libpng12.so.0 - "libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Poking around in /usr/lib, it looks like I have libpng16 but not libpng12. I attempted to make a libpng12.so.0 that was a symlink to libpng16 but this didn't work. So then I found and manually installed an old version of libpng12-0 that works. links and sha256 hashes at end of post. Now that the application launched successfully, the rest was easy. I followed the instructions on the website to put the dongle into programming mode - make sure the dongle is charged up ahead of time, turn the switch to 'on', make the usb connection with my linux PC, double-press the reset button and the led turned pink. shows up in /dev/ttyACM0. Then I selected /dev/ttyACM0 in the program settings, and used the 'payload.bin' from NEUTOS. It uploaded just fine and the dongle now boots me straight into working NEUTOS. I personally don't mind using a computer to launch payloads all that much, but a dongle is much more convenient, especially if to sell it or gift it to a normal person who doesn't computer much.

S.T.A.L.K.E.R. Series Thread Anonymous 04/10/2020 (Fri) 18:54:48 No. 560 [Reply] [Last]
Discussion about one of the best PC games every made. Anyone here regularly play? Modding scene is one of the best for it's age.
Can I get a q.r.d. on the series? I.E. which games are worth playing, which one to start with? I've heard of it before but didn't have a good pc at the time. Do any of these have good controller support? (I did some research and it looks like no official support, hmm). If somebody can give a first-hand account of doing a playthrough with a controller I'll consider it. not keen on the pinnacle software but I've used XPadder in the past.
>>561 Best games worth playing generally are Shadow of Chernobyl and Call of Pripyat, Clear Sky was almost a rushed expansion to Shadow of Chernobyl not really worth bothering with IMO. Then you have the various standalone mods that you can play for free essentially like Call Of Chernobyl, Dead Air, Anomaly etc. I'd recommend getting into Shadow Of Chernobyl first play it vanilla with some texture/ bug fixing mods to get a feel for the game. Unfortunately I don't think I've heard of many people attempting it with a controller, not that it's impossible but I think it might be challenging to get it to work properly. Sorry I can't be of more help, but if you can play it with a keyboard I think you might still enjoy them if you enjoy atmospheric FPS type games.
Ok. it looks like somebody out there on the internet seems to have completed a few playthroughs with a controller. It also looks like it's on GOG, which is good. If it goes on sale at some point I'll pick it up and post a review in the PC Gaming thread.
>>569 Clear Sky is pretty bad, but it's worth playing once or twice. The swamp is pretty tedious in the start. You should get anti-bleeding artifacts ASAP (or a lot of healthkits). The finale can be easily beat by glitching it with quickloads/quicksaves after your target walks down the ladder (after quick loading, he'll go back up then down the ladder).

ok, I finally have a setup that supports proper .sid song lengths . I grabbed " in_sid 1.5.4" from https://winampheritage.com/plugin/in-sidplay2-1-5-4/222277 , sha256sum: 7d9f30be42a5fc76a4a32db504334922f85f89da7293528141fe9f76132bd443 in_sidplay2.dll . Extract the .dll from the .exe with archive manager, then put the .dll into ~/.wine/drive_c/Program Files (x86)/Winamp/Plugins .
Then grab https://www.hvsc.c64.org/download/C64Music/DOCUMENTS/Songlengths.txt and store it on your hard drive somewhere. Open up the plugin preferences in winamp and point it to that file and you're good to go.

forgot to mention that you should enable the "song play time limit" if you don't want to get stuck endlessly on certain songs. I set mine to 0, so it will skip any song that doesn't have a known song length in songlengths.txt , this way I never have dead air

What are you playing? Video games madness 09/17/2019 (Tue) 21:24:04 No. 9 [Reply] [Last]
What video games do you play to escape the madness around you?
I keep coming back to Anno 1602, an old classic but still fun to play and no indoctrination, political correctness, LGBT or any other bullshit in it. Pure calm and enjoiable vidya.

>>450 wish the dwarves swore and talked about beer a bit more, but otherwise it's an awesome game
>>9 Battlefield 1. To me, it's the best online FPS ever made. I just wish it was more historically accurate as far as races go. The European nations should be White, and Turkey can be Turks obviously, but we don't need niggers in the German army for example.
I played tf2 with the cuckchan /v/an and now im torrenting doom 3 might play it tomorow though
>>70 Excellent choice, anon! I've been playing that, Stellaris, and CrossCode.
>>507 Doom 3 is great. I forget if I had to tweak nvidia settings or not but I got it to run at 120 hz no problems. nice game to play with headphones game in the dark and the cold.
