Hey /vr/, I bought this bad boy on Steam and now I want to give it a try. Any recommendation ? Which edition should I play, Special ?
Also should I buy a joystick, and if yes, which one is the best ? thanks

>> No.5301673

I heard the GOG version is better, also yes you definitely want to play it with a joystick. It's a flight simulator, not a shoot them up

>> No.5301690

>every single dogfight is just <cut throttle and turn>

Prepare for a lot of repetitive gameplay.

>> No.5301697

Win98 Special Edition is still the best. If you want the IMUSE sound, there's a mod that rigs it in,

And as a matter of fact you do need a joystick/flightsitck/pad to play.The game wont start without one being connected.

how do hardware fags cope with the fact that an average NTSC SNES game has around 58 ms of input lag on original hardware (~70ms PAL) whereas you can achive <50ms using emulation? As progress in emulation continues, Input lag is being reduced every year for consoles. How do these depressed hoarders cope, besides trying to brag about their collections online and pointing out small graphical glitches in emulation?

You seem far to bitter about people owning stuff. Also remember, not everyone is a "hoarder" or even a collector. Some of us just kept the consoles and games we had back in the day and never sold them.
Anyways, the answer to your question is, these games were playtested on console and CRTs by the devs so whatever input lag there may be was had into account, except for the PAL unless the games were european.

>> No.5301706

Except the games were made with those conditions in mind and are best played in their original conditions.

It was a novel idea for the time.
The US release is unnecessarily hard compared to the Japanese version.
Or maybe the Japanese version is baby-tier, either way there's a big disconnect in difficulty.

Who were some creators from the demo scene who ended up making good games on mainstream consoles? I can recall Factor 5 and Argonaut. Also the guys who did The Adventures of Batman and Robin for the Genesis.
Were there any others?

It's kind of an annoying to see cool demoscene shit but have the disappointment of its non-interactivity. It seems like there was wasted potential from that era in that demoscene tech wasn't sufficiently exploited in games.

Smash TV-a game that whose designers initially made it impossible to beat without dying, or more to the point, unfair so it took more quarters, but were pressured by good players to "complete" the game. It's a long story, but fascinating. I think "Midway Arcade Treasures" covered it in the bonus videos. I think it's a small miracle that they put extra lives in the arcade game and they said they almost didn't.

>> No.5301297

Every arcade game was designed to take your quarters.

>> No.5301313

Killer Instinct. Especially the first one because the game will give the ai opponents an unfair damage buff advantage. That's probably just on extra hard difficulty since I don't play below that, but it is funny watching attract mode Thunder vs Spinal and seeing one of them lost one life bar in less that 5 seconds.

There was this "Punisher" game that I was addicted to. I used to play it at a bowling alley when I was like 8 or something. I did a tiny bit of research on it but turned up something else. It was fun as fuck and I don't know if it had an official title.

I'm stuck in the Phazon mines in Metroid Prime, and I recognize its use of the Metroidvania tropes, but the 3D controls make it feel so clunky. I've been trying to finish the game since 2011 and I'm not sure if I care enough.

In all my years of gaming, the only Metroid games I have finished were all 2D, save for Other M. It just feels right that way.

I’ve been googling for freaking AGES on this but haven’t found any clues in the chan archives or elsewhere so anon you are my last hope. So I’m on retrowithin and I was following the lost japanese games collection from BakuDD before it was leaked but I didn't download that much. My question is... where’s the “Localized Games” folder that he had up? It was mostly western games like Deus Ex and shit but towards the end he started including a bunch of Korean>Japanese rarities like War of Genesis and I’m super interested in these but I never got around to downloading them and now it’s too late. I was wondering if anyone had torrents or mega links for the folder because I haven’t seen any reference to it anywhere outside of the original thread and I thought his entire mega folders were leaked but apparently not. I would ask on rw but I’m too embarrassed to ask there.

Ps I don’t remember if he had uploaded The Alius yet or not but if he did can someone please link me to that too.

A catastrophe in Mario.
His enemy acts hatefully,but many enemies have different answers. For example, when a police officer is safely entering his shell, Goba flows and catches it and its shell is used as a Mario shell. Projects can be isolated from the wall to destroy other enemies, but they also benefit from Mario, to be hurt or killed. Other enemies like water and sharp enemies will not revive and hurt, no, not their players. Mario will jump over and hit the enemies. Mario gets a spirit from many places when he gives the color of the change of the Super Mario bird, and he throws the ball. If Mario hits some hidden or unexpected figure, the star is no more in common. It is a temporary danger that allows them to overcome the enemy of communication.
