If you're truly worried, you could try opening up the back but be seriously careful. Some CRTs have capacitors in them that can kill you if you touch the wrong part and they still have a charge. If you havent plugged in the CRT, then you should be fine if you found it on the back ally.

You can still open it up and just look inside regardless and that really easy to do. Just dont poke around unless you know the CRT hasnt been plugged in for a long time.

Return to Zork is a 1993 graphic adventure game in the Zork series. It was developed by Activision and was the final Zork game to be published under the Infocom label.

Unlike the previous games in the Zork franchise, which were text adventures, Return to Zork takes place from a first-person perspective and makes use of video-captured actors as well as detailed graphics and a musical score; a point-and-click interface replaced the text parser for the first time in a Zork game. The overall gameplay style was somewhat similar to Myst, although Return to Zork predated Myst by a few months. Unlike Myst, which had no extraspatial dimensions of functionality, Return to Zork features multiple ways of interacting with each object in the game world, as well as with several non-player characters also present in the world via a menu which appears on the left side of the screen. It also offers multiple ways to "complete" the game.

Return to Zork was a key part of Activision's attempt to revive the company, overseen by new president Bobby Kotick. Purchasing the company with his business associates, Kotick "fired all 200 employees and implemented a bankruptcy reorganization plan", according to Jeff Sengstack of NewMedia. The goal was to capitalize on Activision's lucrative back catalog of licenses, chief among them Zork. Kotick noted in 1996 that "Zork on a brick would sell 100,000 copies".

Return to Zork is set in the year 1647 GUE, later than any other game in the fictitious history of Zork, including those made after it. Even the relevant backstory postdates all other games, beginning with the Great Diffusion in 1247 GUE. The events of earlier games and even the Great Diffusion, to a degree, have come to be regarded as archaeology or even mythology by this time. Some locations and items place 1647 - such as a club for viewing stand-up comedy performances - as contemporaneous, or at least similar, to the late 20th century.

>I plan on getting a pseudo saturn kai with it so I can play Japanese and burned games
Check if your Saturn can actually read discs. No use in going the Pseudo route if the laser is dead in your system. It should be fine enough to pop a music CD in there and let it play the full album without hiccups or rampant seeking noise, but if you can get a real Saturn game then grab the cheapest one that's a good, not fucked disc, and see if the Saturn plays through enough of the game fine enough.
You need to be especially careful because Saturn games all have a proprietary layer on the outer rim of the disc that acts as both a copyright protection and helps the Saturn determine what data to load next in-game. My copy of Sega Rally Championship runs fine, but my Virtua Fighter 2 has a lot of scratches (and a tiny hairline surface crack) on the outside. It'll boot up and I can play it fine, but Arcade is unplayable after the first stage, it'll try to load stage 2 only to be stuck and effectively crash.
After that though you're good to go. I have to warn you though, that buying from china/hong kong right now is really fucked due to covid and the war stuff going on, your order for a cart may even get cancelled. You may have to settle for a US seller if that's the case, but even though it'll cost a bit more I'd still say it pays for itself, especially given the prices of real copies from any region.

Most media production companies would consider losing any scrap of anything they had ever sunk money into producing beyond the pale nowadays, but it's a relatively recent phenomenon. But even in the 00s it would've absolutely been company policy to retain multiple backups of anything worked on. The philosophy in general is that even though backups can seem like an expensive and superfluous expense for a project that will likely never need to be restored - that expense is a tiny fraction of the amount spent on the actual project (and tape backups effectively last forever if stored properly) so even if it keeps a developer from having to re-code fog physics or an artist from having to make new mossy rock textures or whatever, it's completely worth it.

I think the excuse they used was that they deleted the source codes to make room for new projects but I think it's far more likely that whoever was in charge of data management basically had a premature archive of some earlier code and saw that in the backups before approving the deletion of the source code off the working server, and nobody noticed for 10+ years. 99% of lost assets nowadays come from operator error and people who take some kind of shortcut and work outside the system of safety nets. So for example a scenario like, a dev took a hard drive home with them, did a bunch of work on it, and then left it in their car and it got broken into and stolen - a situation like that is actually fairly common for a project based company with braindead employees who think they're too smart to follow the rules.

So for Konami obviously we'll never know what actually happened, but I'd put my money on it was as simple as

>"Let me check."

>"Yes, you can delete it."

How the fuck do you have puppies in this game? Been wondering this for years. What's the exact process? What are the requirements?

I tried getting both mine and my mate's stats 100% full before trying to mate. Didn't work. I tried leaving the game running on autoplay during the mating season for like 2 or 3 real life days to see if the AI knew what to do. Still didn't work, and made the game go fritzy. Yes we're both alphas, I usually try Rumor and Centaurus because they're OP as fuck. I'm aware you can just do scenario mode and do a pup mission but you always start with handicaps, spawn miles away from your den and there's an aeroplane or helicopter coming to rape you around every corner, plus they end after you survive for the set time.

Also, does anyone else feel like this game could've benefitted from a system similar to SimAnt where you switch to the next living wolf when you die? It sucks to get cheaply one-shotted by some barely visible pixels because you weren't mashing S every 3 seconds.

Terrible larp, even the shitty "I'm a vampire/demon/nobody" threads on modern /x/ have more thought, effort and quality put into them. Besides, real mind control programming efforts were focused on the television media at the timeframe given for Polybius. Study up and try again once you have a better story thought up.

>KI 1 didn't get a good home port.
KI1 was pretty successful, on SNES. And despite not being like the arcade in terms of graphics and sound, understandably, it has the same gameplay and even better (it fixed certain things and is more balanced).
I think by 1996, fighting games just weren't as popular anymore, at least not 2D ones.
MK Trilogy tried, but the series never was as successful as with MK1 and 2. Same with Street Fighter, remember SF III is more popular now (thanks to that Daigo parry vid) than it was at release.

>> No.9163183

The N64 version of MK Trilogy is pretty poor, the choppy animations and dreadful music are probably why people think 2d fighters couldn't be ported to the system.
Surprisingly, the N64 version is the most played in a competitive setting due to 3v3 kombat, lack of broken characters like MK2 Jax or MK2 Kung Lao and some moves (like crouch high kicks iirc) being much faster and better for combos due to missing animation frames.
