So what's the status of the emulation scene for consoles in general? Last I heard things like Saturn, original Xbox, and maybe PS2 were still hard, but most everything else is looking up. I could be wrong though, which is why I'm asking. I hear even 7th gen is doing good.

Quick rundown on the hardest to emulate consoles still remaining? And which ones are more or less complete as far as playability?

>> No.7997264

Saturn and PS2 are fine

Xbox and 360 aren’t that great

>> No.7997268

>>7997250
Saturn is a bitch to set up but when it actually gets going it runs fine. PS2 has some quirks can be smoothed out
Microsoft consoles are lol. Thankfully most are multiplat

>> No.7997283

>>7997250
pretty much still the same.
PSP DS Dreamcast, Gamecube and Back are all pretty much top notch

PS2 is okay but each game has individual settings and are often very important for the game to run. Thats just how PCSX2 is.
Never used PLAY!

Xbox and 360 not so great. PS3 haven't used the emulator heard its okay

Didn't reach the bar set by Half-Life, and is forgotten even in comparison to SiN and Kingpin. Few even remember this game exists.

Completely overshadowed in 1999 by Quake 3 and Unreal Tournament.

Anyone have any experience with wiisxr?
Trying to get it to run this and just constantly getting "abort called" or just black screen and back to homebrew.

Everything is where it should be, BIOS in the BIOS folder, ISO in the ISO folder etc.
The folder is named "Twisted Metal 2 (USA)" and contains "Twisted Metal 2 (USA) (Track 01).bin" "Twisted Metal 2 (USA) (Track 02).bin' etc (12 in total) and then 'Twisted Metal 2 (USA).cue'

I'm not sure if it's because there's so many bin files (I tried Crash bandicoot too which only one file and didn't work) or if it's a naming/folder thing. But from following guides and doing exactly what they did I still don't get anything.

I'm new to emulating this way (and haven't emulated on a pc in probably 20 years) so it's taken a while to work out the naming/file conventions, but managed to get wii, 32x, snes etc all working, just not this one.

What's the worst anti piracy measure you've ever encountered?

9 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.7997060

>>7997009
Konami's favorite anti-piracy measure was doubling the difficulty. Pirate version of Bucky O'Hare starts on hard mode by default. TMNT 3 makes Shredder boss to reset his damage counter multiple times so you fight him (almost) forever.

If i remember correctly, Sunsoft makes the reference to their earlier game in Gimmick! by throwing you into black hole zone if you make it to the final stage.

Checksum tests can be fiddly on real hardware because of all the unpredictable real world disturbances.
That's why they should always have have some leniece and only trigger after repeated detections.
But the SRAM checks were always really strict - wrong value detected once and trigger value written to an address - and the game locks up.

>Find the hidden word.

Boy those were tons of fun back then. we got the PC version of MK1 from an uncles friend, obviously it wasnt cracked, so we had to deal with the screen, we only knew one of the keywords 'HATRED' (we were young and didnt knew a shit of english, so we didnt even know what that word meant).

so as you can imagine, the only thing we could do is writing the word over and over again, taking from 1, to 10+resets (30 tries) to get to the game. supposedly, that friend also had a table with all the words and clues, but he didnt passed it down.

>> No.7997149

>>7997139
I remember we were getting a game copied from my dad's friend in exchange for a copy of one of our games. Both games had copy protection, but their game was of the typical "find word x on page y in the manual" kind, so he just photocopied the manual for us. Our game, on the other hand, had a color coded 15x15 spreadsheet you had to reference, and since we didn't have a way to make color copies, I had to sit there for hours and copy that entire thing by hand, writing down which color was in which square. Fun times.

Mario 3, the controls and platforming are tighter. Also for whatever reason SMW also felt bigger, but more empty, less enemies on levels so lots of "dead air" while playing. I say all of this as someone who played SMW before SMB3, so its not nostalgia for one over the other talking.
