So I just tried to beat Mike Tyson's Punchout while having a vibrator in a very dear area to see how it would impact things and made it to King Hippo before it was too much.

Anyone else ever make weird as challenge modes for their /vr/ favorites? I boot Mega Man from time to time and play the "lose a life, take a shot" game if that counts.

Just neat to adapt /vr/ stuff to my (technically) adult life.

Where you live, which games are more popular? Are there many like-minded people you can still talk to?

I just finished Lunar The Silver Star on Sega CD and I liked it so much that I want to buy the PS1 remake. Looking on ebay, I see many different disc sets, some contain Alex and Luna on disc 1, others with Xenobia on disc 1, some with just Luna on disc 1 and some with Dyne on disc 1. I think.

If you want shitty look at early fan translations. FF is especially notorious for this.

Your example seems like more of a personal project then someone trying to improve a game, weird its under improvement though.

Speaking of, this thread reminded me of a story. Awhile back on a virtual boy fourm (weird, I know) a guy was trying to port snatcher to it as a side project.

Amazing game, where you can finally defeat Shenlong and stand a chance with Ryu.

But really, it also has a lot of problems. Deathscythe has an obvious infinite. Shenlong has that cool spear attack that knocks you down from half screen (which he can conveniently cancel). While some characters have excellent damaging combos, others have shit. But nothing compares to Epyon with his basically unlimited chains. Thank god he's only accessible with a password.

That said, it's still an excellent fighter for fun, with great graphics and music. A must play for everyone looking for a fighter.

Do you want nice EAX environmental effects in your old ish PC games (such as Unreal '97, the first game to use EAX effects)? Of course you do.

Some background: EAX was a proprietary audio API by Creative back in the early 90s and 2000s for making games have nice audio effects such as environmental based reverb and 3D stereo and such. Quite a lot of well known games during the period picked up support for the technology, most of the big ones in fact. It was originally tied to Creative soundcards only as the effects were done by the hardware, So you needed a Soundblaster or Audigy to benefit.

When Vista released, Microsoft fucked Creative over by removing some directx API they used to do EAX. In response Creative released a way to emulate the hardware effects in software. But Creative, being massive jews of course, artificially limited this program to people who still had Creative soundcards in their machine, even though the processing was all done with software now and the hardware could not be used.

Anyway, i went on a search for how to bring EAX to muh old PC games to play on my toaster laptop which definitely doesnt have Creative soundcard, and now im posting the archive i have compiled with the files and instructions inside you need to do it yourself without needing to research random forums threads and shit.

I would say it is worth it. Doom 3 in particular takes on a new atmosphere with the reverb effects, since most of the game occurs inside.

Here is the VT report for the archive, you can check file hashes yourself or just reupload to VT if you like. https://www.virustotal.com/en/file/2d64454b2b9248e8be2cd2eff18ecea594094fb332a0776d69ec5226449267eb/analysis/1484548515/

What he mentioned only works for OpenAL games, not Directsound 3D + EAX which was a popular combination. For that you still need creative's alchemy.

>> No.3741168

A week before the game's release, it became known that an agreement to include EAX audio technology in Doom 3 reached by id Software and Creative Labs was heavily influenced by a software patent owned by the latter company. The patent dealt with a technique for rendering shadows called Carmack's Reverse, which was developed independently by both John Carmack and programmers at Creative Labs. id Software would have placed themselves under legal liability for using the technique in the finished game, so to defuse the issue, id Software agreed to license Creative Labs sound technologies in exchange for indemnification against lawsuits.

OP here, it's unfortunate I had to learn that screw was stuck the hard way but it could be worse. Controller feels pretty much the same even after cleaning it so that's kind of disappointing, but at least you never touch the back of the Famicom controllers in the spot that's missing, unlike the NES one which is a complete rectangle it has a raised edge that you rest your fingers on so luckily that bad screw was in the perfect spot because if it was anywhere on the lower half your fingers would constantly be touching the broken part.

This, too often people call their games innovative which simply isn't true, they come up with novelties and then design the game around it which either works or it doesn't, more often then not it doesn't but it's an interesting approach nonetheless and so that's the value their games bring - something radically different from the norm. But if they were innovative then their games would have a lasting influence which they don't.

I suppose the price may be affected with modern equivalents. Shooting games, RPGs, and action/platformers appear to be expensive now while sports, board, shovelware titles may be on the lower end of prices in general. There are plenty of exceptions as each game genre can vary wildly in price. Also it may be more noticable with low priced sport titles due to quantity available.

You guys make me feel bad as I enjoy sports games since the 8bit days. I still enjoy playing them.
