soundtrack is phenomenal, no denying that. the game itself is as well, but it should've went pure action instead of trying some half-assed platforming. i'm playing on original hardware.

Is that the one with the dropping blocks that eat your jump input and pull you down? I've game over'ed in that spot so many times.

I think the last level, its total lack of enemies and the fact, its re-used music and the glitches that can occur with the falling blocks, just show that the game was rushed to release. They probably did what they could with the time they had.

The game is pretty short after all.

>> No.5513024

I have beaten this game no death but that spot is still a total crapshoot. Even studied speedrunners to see how they approached the blocks but to no avail.

hey boise, hope this is the place to ask
I'm not very experienced with emulation
After reading multiple posts on how to get PS1 games running on the SNES, I managed to get the CORE_psx_rearmed_neon thingie on Hakchi2, retroarch and all.
What I don't get is the part concerning the bios. Everywhere I look, the BIOS files are all upper case, and every post I've read on PS1 emulation tells me to make sure they're lowercase. I'm afraid that I can't find these lowercase bios files, despite being named the same way - anywhere.
I have SCPH-5501.BIN, SCPH-5500.BIN, and the SCPH-5502.BIN, and I'm not sure what to do with them now.
Sure, I could just try to slap them on the SNES Mini with the BIOS installer, but I'm afraid that I'll mess it up.
Could anyone shine a light on this situation?

please and thank you

This game goes from a 9/10 to a 6/10 due to how fucking aggravating the camera is.

9 replies omitted. Click Reply to view.
>> No.5512937

mario 64's camera is the one common video game complaint i see and just cant understand. i have NEVER had trouble with the game's camera, which is surprising considering how many early 3d games had such dogshit cameras. the camera provides all the angles it needs to provide and implements it in a fun way by making it a character.
maybe i dont find it bad because ive never really heavily relied on constant camera movement in video games and actually have some digital spacial awareness because im not a retard with an attention span of a ½ second.

>> No.5513019

The game literally has blindspots for no reason, it doesn't make the game more "challenging" not being able to see if you're going to fall off of a ledge or something is really fucked. Another example is the 5 secret coins you have to get in the pyramid, there's a part where you have to go to the very top, then down a sandwaterfall, below is a platform with a coin and below that is another platform. But because you can't fucking look down enough you're forced to just jump and hope you don't fall a billion feet and nearly die from fall damage. it's things like this why savestates need to exist.

So why did they massively increase the difficulty for the American version?

Weren't most games localized the other way around, so it's harder in Japan?

>> No.5512751

To drive game rentals.

>> No.5512951

No you got it wrong. Japanese games were often easier because renting games wasn't legal there. Game developers didn't want to make games in America easy because due to how short retro games often were it would have meant kids could easily just rent games and beat them in a few minutes. By making them hard it made beating a game in a day or few days harder for children.

There are some exceptions like Mario but more often games in the west would be harder than their Japanese counterpart if there was differences in difficulty.

What were some of the more interesting or outlandish forms of copy protection/anti-tamper for cheating in retro games? I know of Earthbound's incredible lengths to fuck with players if it thought it was a bootleg, but are there any others that are particularly noteworthy, either in what they do or how they preform their checks?

Pic related is a King Quest insert that came with the manual, allowing you to bypass the copy protection when starting the game.
