Sup /vr/, by some stroke of mad luck I have come into possession of these beauties. I've never had a Saturn growing up but always wanted one. I have a bunch of questions that I hope you guys don't mind answering. I've done a some research but I'm still a little lost.

So, first thing's first: I have one US Saturn and one JPN Saturn. They came with one controller and one a/v cable total. I used an apple tv power cord to test them. I'm not sure of the voltage but will it be okay to use long term?

Do I need the 3D controller or arcade stick or is the default controller enough?

What's the deal with the internal memory? I know there's a watch battery in the back, but how can I tell if it needs to be changed?

Action Replay. Do I need one? It also has the ram expansion and the memory. Will this allow me to play backups as well? Do I even need both Saturns if I have an AR?

What are some good starter games that kinda showcase what the Saturn is about? (cheap stuff like the equivalent of Sonic 2 or the 6-Pak on the Genesis maybe) There's a new sealed combo of Virtua Cop/VF 2/Daytona USA for $20.

>Do I need the 3D controller or arcade stick or is the default controller enough?
If you play some 3D games, it'll be tough without them.

> I know there's a watch battery in the back, but how can I tell if it needs to be changed?
Boot it. If it asks you to set the clock, it's probably dead.

>Action Replay. Do I need one? It also has the ram expansion and the memory. Will this allow me to play backups as well? Do I even need both Saturns if I have an AR?
You don't need one, but from what I know chipping is tough these days. I believe flashing the AR will make it lose its save functions, so make sure you have a power memory if you do so.

>What are some good starter games that kinda showcase what the Saturn is about?
If you wanna buy, Panzer Dragoon JP is cheap, Daytona, Virtua Cop, Virtua Fighter. Getting anime games is going deeper into some of the obscure gems, but they get more expensive.

>>3072546

>Do I need the 3D controller or arcade stick or is the default controller enough?
No. Games play fine with the dpad. 3d stick is just better for the games desined with it in mind.

>What's the deal with the internal memory? I know there's a watch battery in the back, but how can I tell if it needs to be changed?
Just buy a new one.

>Action Replay. Do I need one? It also has the ram expansion and the memory. Will this allow me to play backups as well? Do I even need both Saturns if I have an AR?
I don't mess with AR.

Not much sub $100. Virtua Fighter, Daytona, and Sega Rally can be found cheap though.

Was the Neo Geo more powerful than the Saturn at 2D, or were developers just more experienced with the architecture due to how long it lasted?

The latter.

>> No.3072678

>>3072589

If I get the action replay, do I even need to bother with the internal battery? Also which system should I use it on(does it matter?) or should I just get two?

What is chipping and flashing? and what is a power memory

I'm definitely interested in Panzer Dragoon. I have Orta and love it. So that's a game I can play without it being translated?

I'm into shmups too, are there a bunch on the Saturn?

Right now I have my eye on Guardian Heroes and Dark Savior. Shining the Holy Arc, Dragon Force, Magic Knight Rayearth, and DBZ Legends are on my list as well. I know those are pricey but I don't mind dropping a bunch of cash on the games if I get them slowly one at a time. As of right now I don't want to spend over a hundred for a single game, though.

>>3072601

Which games utilize the 3d stick? I know Knights for one, does. But I have it on 360/One so I'm not gonna bother with that one.

As far as games around $100 or less, what are some cool games that the Saturn does exclusively?

>> No.3072692

Panzer Dragoon 1 and 2 are import friendly, 3 is not. 2 is the best one IMO

Darius Gaiden is a good schump.

VF2, Sega Rally, and Virtua Cop are insanely cheap. DOA is too but import only. Daytona USA CE is good, but make sure you get the Japanese version. Fighters Megamix is the GOAT Saturn game but the Japanese version has slowdown. Get the US one.

It's a standard cable, and literally just two wires that run from the wall to the console end of things. It'll be fine.

>>3072678
>If I get the action replay, do I even need to bother with the internal battery?
The Action Replay is more for storage than it is for direct usage with games(from what I understand), so keeping the battery backing for the internal memory for everyday usage would be suggested.

Modchipping, for playing backups. So long as you can find someone to buy one from, the Phantom Universal couldn't be more simple to install,

Applying modified firmware to the Action Replay so that it acts similarly to a modchip, allowing you to play backups.

Mmk, I'll replace the batteries. Should I buy a second AR to act as a memory card for the JPN Saturn as well, or should I just use one system at a time since the AR lets you play imports?

>Modchipping, for playing backups. So long as you can find someone to buy one from, the Phantom Universal couldn't be more simple to install

Ah, I see. For some reason I thought it'd be as easy as just getting an AR. If it's any more involved I probably won't bother. Collecting is more my speed.

Chip leaves your AR free for regular usage.

Flashing your AR with PseudoSaturn requires a single usage of the swap trick and is essentially acts as a portable modchip.

Down side is you can't use it for saves or cheat codes after you flash it.

Can you play Dragoon Saga with pseudosaturn? Because with the default AR4 and a modchip you need to use a cheat code to bypass the cart removal message.

Neither. It was weaker in every way but was specifically geared towards pushing lots of sprites from ROM, and having gigantic ROM space.

Developers then abused that to push shedloads of animation into each game.

Default controller is enough for most games, except for NiGHTS and Panzer Dragon (both of those games has ports on ps2) and some racing games (but you can get a wheel for those).

Action Replay is absolute "musthave" it acts as regionmod, ram expansion, let you play backups and you can store save files there.

You never *need* an arcade stick. They're just a gimmick that fighter fans convince themselves they need so they can pretend they're at the arcade. The truth is they're a terrible control method compared to a D pad. Uncomfortable, cumbersome and a waste of money.

Are they at least playable though? It might take me a little while to get a 3D controller but PD should be getting here in the mail tomorrow.

Should I bother getting an AR for each Saturn? I hear they damage the cart slot from constant use so am I better off having one on each? I already have 1 in my US Saturn at the moment. Should I just keep my JPN Saturn as a spare since the US can play Japanese games?

my nigga these are some of the best shooters on the saturn tops! Especially Battle Garegga. Batsugun is good since it includes the special edition board that is pretty easy to complete and superior than the vanilla board.
Hyper Duel is also another amazing game made by technosoft (same guys who did Thunder Force on the Genesis/Mega Drive) the new mode is the way to go since its crushes the original arcade version.
>>3073304
with the newest version of pseudosaturn you can play Zwei and Saga. the few games you can't play still are KOF 95, Ultraman since they require their own special carts and i believe batman forever. I think the community is still trying to reimplemenet the save state and cheat feature tho so unfortnately you'll need to invest into a save cart the JP ones are still cheap and will fit all your games (I have over 90 total both burned and actual games) into one cart. Only issue might be the cart swapping might not be the best idea i believe.

if you got the Action Replay+, or whatever, then you might not need that JP Saturn. the AR has a backup save, 4G RAM, and allows the system to play japanese games. I have one, and I love it to bits.

as for Saturn showcases, whatever is expensive on Ebay is probably excellent. any fighting game will look beautiful, especially the arcade perfect Capcom ones. Guardian Heroes is so good it should be taught in school.

personally, I liked Astal, Sonic R, and Magic Knight Rayearth. the Panzer Dragoon games are very good, but all the 3D games look like shit, compared to any other system.

The game isn't bad but I'm glad I didn't buy it. I throw it in with Albert Oddyssy. Mediocre games that get really talked about because it's the Saturn and the Working Designs logo is on the box.

I have no issues with short or easy games. They just need to have something special about them. It could just be I'm not much of a fan of the show. If this was a Sailor Moon game or something I'd buy it in a heart beat. But then again I'd had owned it years ago if that was the case.

but, it's mostly "smash huge armies together". bigger platoon beats little platoon. Final Fantasy Tactics, it ain't. I thought Shining the Holy Arc was dreadful. it is a dungeon crawler with turn-based combat. it's slow as fuck, has an infuriating encounter rate, and all the monsters look like they were sculpted out of Playdoh.

I wish there were a video that just showed off the game mechanics and a little of the early stages. And also had higher resolution that 8 hour Let's Play looks pretty decent.

But no, the Saturn does not have any such problems. The only thing you have to pay attention to is whether your unit is 20pin or 21pin, but since modchips are universal now, this only matters for Rhea compatibility any more.

Thank you.

If I were to flash my AR for PseudoSaturn, would it be possible to undo it later on to get the original functionality back?

>> No.3081789

Damn, I really missed the boat on collecting for the Saturn. The prices just a few years ago are way more reasonable than they are now. $500 for Panzer Dragoon Saga!? People were complaining when it cost $150. What the fuck happened??

I'm just going to import it because I really enjoy the atmosphere and music so hopefully I can get through the damn thing.

>>3081746
yeah you can undo the mod if you don't want it later on.

Importing has been getting pricer as well thanks to more people doing so.

I know people say that Ebay is a measure of the market value of things, but I think that's bullshit. some people just post sky-high prices and wait. if there is no pressure to sell a thing, then the market has no way to force a seller to lower his price.

that said, MKR came out after the Saturn had already died. it had been hyped for years, was blessed with a fantastic localization by a company known for lavish localizations, and dropped near the beginning of the US anime craze. I bet it came out in a very limited release, which would only drive aftermarket prices higher. Basically the same conditions that drive the price of a lot of games, to include Panzer Dragoon Saga. That game was going for hundreds of dollars, 10 years ago

>ction Replay. Do I need one? It also has the ram expansion and the memory. Will this allow me to play backups as well? Do I even need both Saturns if I have an AR?

You should definitely do it. Getting a mod chip was pretty much impossible, so I got an AR and after a bit of swap trick bullshit, managed to get it booted so I could flash it.

Now I'm playing Daytona and Gundam with ease.

I got it working just the other day finally, thanks to shitty fucking image burn software.

So far I've got Virtual On, Daytona, and Gundam Side Story 1.

what are you using? Imgburn should be fine. I've been using that and I had no issues at all.

Imgburn wasn't working on any of my images at all. I believe its because imgburn can't handle multisession tracks or something like that.

Either way, the freeware version of Alcohol 120 did it for me. Imgburn seemed to produce coasters.

that sucks. Where do you get your saturn isos at? I got all of mine over at the ISO Zone. They have some good image files for saturn games.

Couple questions:

1. I have a US Saturn. For Pseudosaturn, do I need a US Memory Card/AR or can I use one from a different region?

2. I bought one of these: http://www.ebay.com/itm/Memory-Card-Plus-Sega-Saturn-VG-Condition-Untested-/231853235862?hash=item35fb879e96:g:sJIAAOSwWnFV9JHG but it didn't work when I got it (As in, it didn't even work to save regularly). Is there a better cheap option? IE - What's the best choice for my money?

>> No.3081914

>>3081913
It probably didn't work because you need to replace the battery inside.

I already returned it. The contacts were all corroded, and the system didn't even recognize it.

I don't believe there's any sort of region locking on the various carts, so using a Japanese one on a US console or vice-versa shouldn't be a problem.
