What's the best controller for pc emulation? I'm currently using an Xbox 360 controller but the d-pad is absoloute trash. Squishy feedback and there's too much travel before the input is recognized. I mainly emulate NES and SNES games.

So I've been playing Etrian 3 and now I'm interested in the more classic games in the genre.

Any good mapping tools I can use across games to draw the dungeons? I could try graph paper like god intended but knowing myself they will become an absolute unreadable mess.

Wizardry, King's Field, Shadow Tower, Meridian 59, etc. Legend of Grimrock is not retro but it is an instant-classic imo.

Pen and paper. Just draw a little square for every room, it's that easy... If you really prefer digital then there's plenty of tools out there, like this one for example

The original is the better game and it isn't even close. It's a better designed game from top to bottom and Future has more glaring flaws.

They really pushed for a style of music that platforming games didn't do then. Look at the first stage: the DK Island Swing song has 25 seconds of nothing but the drum beat and ambient noise. You can beat the first level in 25 seconds if you're fast enough. But no one playing for the first time is going to do that, they're going to explore around and get a feel for it, and by time they're "ready" to go on, the song has progressed too. Games back then didn't do things like that.

That's the vibe of a lot 3D of that era. Many of the early 3D art creators were New Age practitioners and psychonauts who were jazzed about the idea of creating virtual worlds, and their work was influential on other 3D artists.

Is there a more unituitive program than this? MAME was strange at first, but made complete sense in retrospect. But THIS?! This has so many fucking awful design choices to count...
How do I exit a game and return to the menu? In every other emulator that would be the ESC key, but not retroarch.
This was made for playing large libraries right? Then why can't I press a letter to skip to the files starting with "S" for instance.
Oh great, now a search menu has opened. How do I exit it. ESC? No, that would be too easy. Right-Click? That's what retroarch uses as a back button - right? Nope that didn't work. But it did exit out of the directory I was browsing - so that's great... What you have to do is perform a search with no characters in it.
Surely, C:\Users\Downloads would be a popular enough location to warrant being a default?
Alright - Let's load a nes game... Opens Mario.NES - Suggested Cores: "" - Click on the "" - retroarch crashes.

Thoroughly read https://retroarchleaks.wordpress.com/ and make sure you never donate, as the original developers won't see a cent, and you're simply contributing to sp's vidya fund.

With that out of the way, you should still use retroarch for F R E E, as it's the objectively best way to emulate gen 3-5. Your move, schizo :)

Use the search function.

Back button on keyboard/controller.
>Surely, C:\Users\Downloads would be a popular enough location to warrant being a default?
No, because only normies leave files in that folder. Decent people have a roms folder. If using retropie it has its own directory for obvious reasons.
>Alright - Let's load a nes game... Opens Mario.NES - Suggested Cores: "" - Click on the "" - retroarch crashes.
What did you expect? You've got a butchered installation without cores, and by the sound of it other things too.
I've used retroarch on Wii, PSP, 3DS, PS3, Android, W7 and Mint and only had problems on Mint because of deprecated hardware, so you're clearly just retarded.

FF5 is really immersive and draws you into the story. You care about improving your characters because you can make meaningful small changes over time. You also have a long term goal of leveling up many different types of classes so your peasant class can get better stats.

This game is so good and It's the most immersive game on the 16 bit consoles. It draws you in more than persona 5 it's got better music than persona 5 (Non elevator music)

Galuf being a berserker makes a lot of sense for me in the story it makes his final battle more dramatic to me. I always thought of him as a berserker king with amnesia. Which is why I dislike the gameboy port because they make him sound too intellectual. Like the writers made him a white mage or something against his character. When I played the gb translation I didn't get immersed in the story. The ps1 one was immersive but so is the original butz fan translation.

I like how I can relate with the bad guy exdeath. Once a beautiful tree that grew hatred and became evil.

This wasn't even my first final fantasy game but I thought the story was truly immersive and really sparked my imagination.

>> No.7020408

Also the gameplay was good since ATB slows down the gameplay in 4 and it's so fast in 6 that you can pause the game during your animations to get an advantage and let your atb gauge build up on enemies animations to gain an advantage. And the advantage is huge.

>> No.7020410

Oh so my point is that ff5 is fast since theres no waiting like in 6 but not abusable like 4. It's the most balanced system.
