I recently got a $20 Nintendo eshop card as a gift and thought I'd buy a couple of these NeoGeo games with it for my Switch. I can afford two, so which titles are absolutely most worth the 8 bucks?

I need someone to vindicate me because I feel like I'm taking crazy pills. I just got an SNES Classic and I was playing Earthbound using a combination of SRAM and Save States, whichever was more convenient. Well today I couldn't remember if my SRAM or my save state was further ahead so I booted up the save state first. Nope, further back than my SRAM save in game was last night, time to reset and load the game up by itself.

THE SNES CLASSIC OVERWRITES THE GAMES SRAM WITH ITS SUSPEND POINT DATA.

The worst part? Everyone online is acting like this is normal and this is how emulators work. Last I checked retroarch's .state files don't fucking TOUCH my .srm files. Has anyone else experienced this insanity? How could Nintendo think making your states play Russian roulette with your SRAM would be a good idea?

>> No.5171121

>>5171094
Save data is a part of the state. Most games use sram as save, but some use it as general purpose ram too, so not reloading and overwriting it could have problematic consequences.

You should at least know something about the platform you're emulating before complaining.

If troll post, +1

If serious, use any emulator. State data never writes to .srm data.

>> No.5171132

>>5171121
Not OP, but most emulators have two separate files. One for regular save data, the other for savestates. If I load a savestate it does not wipe out my regular save data, if I reset the game it will load my regular save by default. There is no reason for loading a savestate to cause a permanent loss of regular save data.

Correct. The amount of people online who don't realize this is staggering. Nintendo includes this tiny disclaimer in their support section online that basically says "we didn't implement this properly, you should probably only use suspend points". Incredible.

Personally sometimes it feals like some of these games even surpass the games they are inspired by like i legit like Freedom Planet more than Sonic even sonic Mania and i legit like Shovel knight more than many similar NES games.
Althou some games such as Contra Hard Crops or Metal slug feel unsurpassed even today.

"[Ocarina of Time] is coded in a certain way to handle its own disk expansions. Normally, if you code it in the way Nintendo made it for: It's just for dungeons. It's totally just for a Master Quest thing. However we're running custom code thanks to that so we can do a lot more." - LuigiBlood

So after all these years it seems that Ura really was nothing more than new dungeons. I can't help but be really disappointed.

>> No.5170421

>>5170385
I don't think so. he's assuming that's all the DD could load, based on scraps.
he seems to think that Ura couldn't add any new information and only rearrange preexisting data on the cartridge, which would beat the purpose of the DD.

no need to get technical even, Ura was supposed to be the DD's big break. there are interviews stating that, at the very least, they wanted to bring back the 3D market and make changes to the environment permanent.
Ura lacks any of that. and considering Mario Artist came out in December '99, I find it odd that the team was sitting on their asses, waiting for the demise of the DD, instead of working on assets.

There is never any sunsets, never sunrises, never a night or day. Link completed all those dungeons, and all of these trials in the light and dark world in one whole day. Have you ever accomplished that much anon in a day anon?

YS 1 takes place during a single day. Adol climbs the tower during the day, and once you reach the middle of the tower, the sun sets and night comes in. Once you defeat the final boss, it's the dawn of the next day.

What's awesome is that Adol climbed the whole Darm Tower alone in a single day, while the protags of YS Origins took at least a week, and there were at least 8 people in the group.
