>>717 Why aren't you developing bots to infect dipshit chink and pajeet computers? If they are so stupid, why are they calling your grandma to scam her and not the other way around? I know it comes across as defending these people, but I'm just trying to point out that we must be more clever going forward.
>>719 >If they are so stupid, why are they calling your grandma to scam her and not the other way around? Never said they were stupid, just that they are handed everything and only "work hard" at being immoral jew wannabe human trash. I don't give a shit about developing bots or any of this anti-human technoshit anymore, I just want this diseased system to be burned to the ground and any and all who support it to be held accountable and punished accordingly.
>>720 Hey, I couldn't agree with you more. It doesn't even occur to me to scam people in other nations.
>>714 How quickly did you forget that Steam made the skyrim mod shop. They have fucked you every possible way they can get, including holding your games hostage if you the holocaust never happened. Tomorrow they can prevent you from playing online or simply lock your account. And yet you still continue giving them money instead of pirating for free. Could have bought your dad some cigars and vodka, or your girlfriend something with those money mate, shame on you. company fucks you with paid mods, you dont even own the games and you continue giving them money. what are you a cuck? IF tomorrow i set your car on fire will you forgive me after a week? you forgive steam.

Old, Mediocre Games Are Better than Modern Games Anonymous 02/11/2020 (Tue) 04:48:32 No. 448 [Reply] [Last]
2007 - Conan comes out. It's a cheap God of War rip off and feels middling as hell. It looks like they forgot to add textures to the game. I drop it after 30 minutes out of disgust. 2020 - Gaming has become so awful I've gone back to Conan. At least they tried to copy a combat engine that isn't utter ass like a Demon's Souls clone. I don't even care that the game looks like ass. It plays better than most action games I've played in the past 8 years. Have you gone back to any games you didn't care for and then suddenly realized that they weren't so bad, now that we're in CY+6?

>>448 I had blockbuster game pass and got to play numerous games during 360 era but, I considered it a sleeper hit it showed titties too. You should play Enslaved: Odyssey to the West,and Alan Wake best sleeper hits on the 360. I also recommend Vermintide 2 it plays like left 4 dead with zero sjw or shitskins, niggers. Most games I play are older games Bf4, skyrim , Gta 5, Half life 2, team fortress. Most games really do suck especially since forenite started the soul less battle royale zoomer garbage. So you never make new friends on them with instant elimination and no reason to stick around after dying. Theres a reason why they are just remastering everything the entire ps5 lineup is remasters most of ps4 was remasters. As much as PC likes to hate on consoles their wallets brought some good games. But now they are just milking every retard for skins not even content. I think the worst part of diversity hires, femicunts and sjws isn't them being in the game its that now they are trying to make the games and the games are absolute shit like cyberpunk or any of the other recent AAA major flops. True Crimes of LA, Enslaved: Odyssey to the West, Alan Wake, and Simpsons hit and run need to be remastered and the faggots remaster call of duty which really have little difference to current ones.
>>669 Yea, I only play 2D games. 3D games just don't appeal to me.
>>448 Fucking absolutely. I recently started playing the likes of Codename Kids Next Door for the Gamecube, Haunted Mansion and Eternal Darkness It might be nostolgia but I love them far more than the garbage they create today

>>448 Let me tell you something anon. I really REALLY loved the overall plot and world shit of the Ultima series. When i was younger I saw the primative nature of the games to be a turnoff for me But now, I love them, especially since I play other games of similar interfacing and graphics like Dwarf Fortress, CDDA and Dungeon Crawl. Ultima is just so... wholesome compared to the fucking trash and overengineered trash they peddle today. I just started up a new playthrough of Ultima 4 Quest of the Avatar and its so engaging to go on this simple but engaging religious quest to become a messiah of a fantasy land
>>448 The first game to actually make me start realizing that the vidya game scene was declining at a rate I didnt like was Red Alert 3. I was so infuriated at how they butchered the lore, made everything far more cartoonish and less serious to the point to vowed to never purchase another game from EA ever again. Now... now Red Alert 3 is a masterpeice compared to other shit. Makes me sad anons

New 3DS homebrew & emulation experience Anonymous 09/23/2019 (Mon) 15:52:15 No. 39 [Reply] [Last]
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.

I played New Leaf recently, you can run it and most of the DLC to my understanding, it ran just fine.
>>39 >>46 Ever since (((androids))) this sort of thing has felt dated. This coming from someone that in the early 2000s wished he had the Korean gp2x thing. I did end up having a psp emulate things okay, the old phat kind. I used that lumines game to hack it. The only psp game I ever bought was that game just to hack it to use the psp the same or similar way that I used a normal PC. I watched entire anime series on the thing back in the day and even browsed 4chan. I used it for music and as a pda basically too. It's snes was fine. It's n64 was awful. A cool thing about he original DS is that it had a dslinux. The PSP only did linux for proof of consept due to it already behaving as a pc well enough. The DS needed an actual opera gba device to even get online. I also remember reading in 2007 about a hack to put the gp2x online. I never owned anything but the original, non-hacked DS, and the hacked PSP that was the phat version. The only consoles I own now are the ps1 tiny thing, the gamecube, the ps2, the original nes, the original snes (talking US here), original gameboys, gamegear, and then just the old laptops and android devices of which are all I use, those last. Most of my games, approx 80, are roms. I don't have very many nice actual physical games due to being a poorfaggot and then NEET my entire life.
>>39 Oh, aside from that little blog post I just made OP, I just have to say that I have never vomited harder than when I tried out retroarch. It's bad. Fuck retroarch. It makes me want to go into the past and play a literal windows 98, as my first computer was better than the shit they have now days. Retroarch I tried with lakka on a raspberry pi and discovered how shit it was, modern programming. The zero can't even play snes properly. Everything is bloatware. But what REALLY got me was that no matter your device it only plays bin/cue rather than img/iso. Lakka let me know just how shitty that fucking garbage is. They obviously are spooked and being told not to let the downloadable common versions of the psx roms/isos to be usable. The iso/img are the altered non-detected kind. Fuck retroarch and this current year in general.

>>458 I have an Allwinner A20 SBC, and quickly realized most modern emulators are designed for modern x86 hardware. I haven't yet found a SNES solution, but it's not a high priority for me since I mostly care about Sega Genesis and older systems. These are what I'm using right now, with good results, and without even needing the OpenGL driver blob loaded. binary packages are from Ubuntu 16.04 LTS, since that's the Armbian build I installed. The others I built myself from source. NES/Famicom: fceux 2.2.2+dfsg0-1build1 Genesis: dgen-sdl-1.33 (./configure --without-cyclone) Amiga: e-uae-0.8.29-WIP4 (./configure --with-sdl --with-sdl-sound --with-sdl-gfx) Atari ST: hatari 1.8.0+dfsg-1 Atari 8-bit: atari800 3.1.0-2 MSX: openmsx 0.12.0-1build1 C16/64/128/etc: vice 2.4.dfsg+2.4.25-2 PCE: mednafen (I use "mednafen -force_module pce_fast" but not all games will run like this, so OpenGL is needed for the others) ZX Spectrum: fuse 2.9.4-1ubuntu3.1 Amstrad CPC: caprice32-4.2.0 (works generally ok but keyboard code needs a bit of work, but I can probably fix this)

Post "Blue Moon" update Short Circuit is a mess. The 65 metal energy clusterfuck with a hitbox that covers half the map rewards only the engineers that camp on top of a dispenser and spam it on any projectile class. And even then, they are better off using the wrangler. It's also hands down, the most annoying weapon in this game. It's one of the three main reasons I left this game. 0 volts AC/10 wouldn't zap again

Why exactly is Valve so fucking reluctant to do something about the bots. I know this has been asked to death but holy shit. It's tragic that they're complacent with letting one of their staple IPs get assraped by losers using sniper bot accounts. Is it really that hard to update VAC to be on par with CSGO?

so why the fuck does everyone put the blame and hate on dutch? all i ever see and hear people say about dutch was that he was crazy le plan meme but thats fucking bullshit! dutch was an amazing leader, and it wasnt his fault his plans kept falling apart. the fact of the matter is, MICAH was the reason for everything and the game tells you that at the end with the revelation taht micah was working for the feds. he was the reason pinkertons kept showing up. he kept giving them info. and remember when they were in guarma and he gave that old bitch a gold bar and he told arthor that that was his last bar? and than the old fucking bitch had the audacity to demand more gold for leading them through a liniear tunnel so he stabbed her? i will admit it was dumb for him to lie and say he knew spanish or that he saw it in her eyes, SHE WAS DEMANDING MORE THAN HE HAD AND MORE THAN SHE DESERVED! fuck, the writing for this game was retarded at times, and the people who played it are just as stupid for not getting it.

This thread is dedicated to the original Sony Playstation, also known as the "PSX" or "PS1" . What games are you playing? Anyone try out the new Arduino modchips?
>Arduino Modchips:
PsNee - https://github.com/kalymos/PsNee
Diagrams - https://quade.co/ps1-modchip-guide/psnee/

Better performance than the old PIC mods!
(22.10 KB 492x400 attiny85-soic.jpeg)
PsNee modchip is pretty cool. I just did two PSOne systems with ATtiny85s. Just remember to burn the fuses ("Burn Bootloader" in arduino IDE) for the 8 MHz internal osc. I'm using bare ATTiny85 SOIC packages, solder it down once to my programming/test jig, flash once with an LED blink program to make sure everything's good, then flash with PSNee. Desolder from test jig, solder onto bare SOIC breakout, run wires.
Getting a functional arduino programming setup is a bit of a hassle (I just gave up fighting permissions issues and just run "sudo arduino"), but it's still way better than the old days of flashing questionable .hex's through ancient Windows-only software and hw tooling.

K3B will burn discs that are .cue, .bin, but only with a single .bin track. I switched to ImgBurn under wine since it can handle .cue + multi .bin isos as well.
(41.84 KB 540x405 snobow-kids.jpg)

Chipped all the systems I had laying around and burned about a hundred discs so far. Pretty comfy. Would be even comfier if I could find an actual NTSC-J fullset. I found a ~120 GiB NTSC-J set on Rutracker but it's nowhere close to being comprehensive. The NTSC-U set I found there was pretty good, if not exactly 100%.
It seems like Coolrom is the place to go for ntsc-j oddities for the time being. I found most of the one-offs I was looking for there, though the speeds are painful. I also found a few at psxrenzukoken .
Currently playing Snobow Kids Plus, extremely _C_O_Z_Y_

>>317 Good luck finding a full NTSC-J set. there are still a ton of missing entries for the NTSC-J library on psxdatacenter , and thats one of the most comprehensive lists I have found so far. Here's my collection ofPSX games, it's by far my favorite console. I have puyo puyo tsu and sun in the mail, as well as Tail of the Sun, which I'm really looking forward to playing. How does snowboard kids plus differ from the n64 version?

Had the PS1 plugged in and going again for a few weeks. Been using the framemeister since I've just got a flat screen setup at the moment, big CRT's in storage. Ended up having to get a decent shielded Euro SCART cable since I was getting faint video noise that becomes noticeable when blown up huge on a TFT, but mostly because I was getting crosstalk from the video on the audio outputs. Really annoying buzz that varied in direct proportion to how bright the screen was. Did a big nasty mod of an LS-40 into an old dirty arcade stick, feels great now. Haven't really touched the buttons yet, just switched around the arrangement with some cut'n'jump soldering. They're the annoying type where the plunger and receptacle are mounted to the shell, but the switches are all soldered to a big PCB. Means you can't just pull and replace with sanwa's etc without doing surgery. I've done it before but it's a pain in the ass, generally proportional to the number of buttons. Gameplay wise I've mostly been playing Castlevania: Symphony of the Night and Metal Slug 001 (JP). Pretty good. I could write a bunch about those but this post is long enough, maybe later.

>>671 New patch is out that fixes it, allows for inverted camera like the old game. At least on Sunshine, that's all I've tested so far. SM64 is already playable on retroarch and also has the native port, and galaxy sucks donkey balls. Apparently you can also use the gamecube controller as well. Not too interesting to me since my pc and wii can already play this stationary w/ usb adapter, so really the new part here is the handheld ability.

Even after a cleaning the NES Advantage still sucks balls. LMAO at all the low-effort blogspam out there that calls it a better controller than the default NES pad. I also found out that the controller wiring is literally and actually just a 8-bit shift register, so I'm going to try to turn the EMIO NES classic stick into one that works on the regular NES. The EMIO has mounts for a sanwa style stick and buttons are 30mm compatible after some sanding. I've got the Seimitsu LS-40 on the way as my first real arcade stick so we'll see how the install goes.
i played Dragon Warrior 1 and Ultima 4 Quest of the Avatar a lot when i was a kid.

Super Mario 2 and 3 were also favs. There was a few good RPG, mystery games too but i can't remember the name, Shadowfall or something

If you haven't played Batman for the NES, you're missing out. The music is superb. The walljumping is the most satisfying I've ever played in a video game. Feels so good and you're given so much control.
>>309 it's been a while. I did end up finishing my joystick controller project. ended up just stuffing the guts of a third-party nes controller with turbo into the emio stick. put in a seimitsu ls-40 with an oct gate, shit is so fucking cash. I never really understood why people use joysticks until now. arcades near me all used beat to shit happ and fighting game mouthbreathers use those fucking awful floppy sanwas. seimitsu ls-40 for life. it's kind of annoying how tall it is, but there's no free lunch I guess. Not really much in the way of shmups on NES but the super precision with the oct-gate helps me pleb through games like metroid etc. I still have the NES Advantage. I've got some woodworking tools now so maybe I can figure out how to cut a properly-sized spacer so I can mount an ls-40 in that and keep the adjustable turbo knobs.
