It's not bad, it just will kill your will to live because of how it drags on. The core of it is the same as any other DQ, just at 1/10th the normal pace.

Is it possible that we'll ever get a Sega Genesis flash cart that can run Sega CD ISOs, or a cloned Sega CD that is very small and slim and can easily be disconnected and stashed away?

I love a lot of Sega CD games but I really don't like having to leave my Genesis plugged into it. It takes up so much space and I feel like it detracts from the aesthetics of the Model 2' design and engineering rather than adding to it. And it's even worse if you're a Model 1 owner.

Maybe I am just being too damn picky but I wish there was an alternative that I could just plug in when I want to play Sega CD games and put away when I don't need it.

>> No.4334632


>> No.4334645

Probably not until supplies of CD-Rs really run out in a few decades or so, if there is still even a retro modding scene like we currently have. There's almost no demand for it since you can just play burnt discs without copy protection.

The addon has it's own CPU and a lot of custom chips so a slim loader ala SD2IEC, let alone any clone at all, isn't going to happen either.

The only alternative, really, is emulation.

>> No.4334664

How can genesis run mode7 without SegaCD.

>> No.4334710

If it had some kind of special chip capable of emulating the Sega CD hardware it might be possible, similar to the SD2SNES. However, the Sega CD probably just plain isn't that in demand. Comparing the Sega CD to the SNES in terms of popularity is pretty night and day.

>> No.4334792

Best you can hope for is an optical drive emulator.

The first and the final level are good.
The asteroid shooting level (I think level 3 or 4) is fine, simple arcade shooting, not as good as the other flight levels though.
The on-foot levels, which are the majority of the game, are not great by today's standards, but it's playable. Being able to switch between 1st and 3rd person camera helps a lot. Just avoid the useless cinematic camera.

>> No.4334673

Great game, first level is actually not even that good since Rogue Squadron remade it and it was many times better.

It's a nice third person shooter with platforming in the Star Wars universe. For a launch window N64 title, it did great, I personally like it mroe than Jedi Knight II.

Is "Shenmue is boring" nothing more than a meme spouted by hacks like Jeff Gerstmann who can't handle games that don't offer constant action and instant gratification? Anyone with a hint of patience can see that Shenmue is an incredible adventure game with more attention to detail and world interactivity than most of the shit coming out today. I'm currently on the final disc of this game and can't wait to play II, considering that one is held in higher regard.

Anyway, Shenmue thread. Post favorite characters, areas, minigames, etc.

Go to YouTube and search hakchi snes.

All you do is download hakchi2, dump stock kernel (keep this if you want to go back to stock) and follow the instructions. It will tell you when to connect the SNES mini.

Then you flash the custom kernel. After that just add your roms in (can be zipped) and they will all be converted to work with the SNES mini. You can also search for box art or browse on your drive. Then sync those games over. By default, those games appear in a separate folder but you can change the view options in hakchi to have them show with all the stock games.

A few games don't work with Nintendo's clover emulator, so you'll need to add the retroarch addon and specify those games to not use clover emulator.

There really is no reason at all that the GBA should still be verboten on here. It's a natural fit for the board in nearly every way.

>It's a 2D focused handheld with a number of entries in or ports of /vr/ staple series that already get discussed on here anyway, meaning the rule is already loosely enforced with regards to it.
>It's old enough to have fallen out of popular discussion on 4chan and would thus be unlikely to attract many crossboarders. /v/ has maybe one thread about the console each week that reaches a cap of maybe 200~ replies and /vg/ users who frequently discuss its titles are both rare and likely post here already.
>It's already over sixteen years old and with the release of the Switch has now seen three new generations of Nintendo handhelds come out, putting it on par with the likes of the N64 and PS1.
>Is the final iteration of a /vr/ staple handheld line - the Gameboy family - and it being included would be a solid way to round out the bunch.
>When the Dreamcast got added it was in an exceedingly common position; infrequently discussed by other boards, part of the very early sixth gen for its type of console (home), the last member of its particular line, and home to many games that were already talked about on here anyway. Adding it in no way compromised the quality of the board in itself, and serves as proof that the GBA could theoretically be a fine fit for /vr/ as well.
At absolute worst we should unban it at the end of this console generation, by which point it'll be nearly at its second decade most likely, but I see no reason why it shouldn't have been allowed already with the dawn of the first eight generation handheld.
