I want to make more charts like these but I don't really know what to put on them. There are so many charts already with "good JRPGs" and such, but maybe there's some console or genre of games that would really benefit from being showcased in an animated medium like this.

I've thought about doing something like "the most graphically impressive games on various retro systems," but the layout would have to be kind of weird to accommodate different image resolutions and aspect ratios.

It's not a licensed game as far as I know, it's a Irem video game franchise known in the west as Nikki Kid, but the 3rd game (which I think it's by far the best) wasn't localized. It did get a Mario hack bootleg called "Super Mario 14" though, that's how I played it.

On the other hand, Mitsume ga tooru is a licensed title, based on a manga by Osamu Tezuka. You shouldn't dismiss licensed games though, especially in retro times, licensed games could many times be among the best.

What kind of programming language are you using?

>> No.4136347

It's Avisynth. Not really a proper programming language, more of a scripting system for describing tasks in non-linear video editing. It has very limited control flow (no loops, no conditionals other than the ternary operations you see in my screenshot). I'm using it in a way it was definitely not designed to be used, and should probably be using something else more modern.

I think in the past it was primarily used by encoders for anime fansubbing groups to apply filters like inverse telecine, duplicate frame decimation, line darkening, warpsharpening, etc. I'm not sure if anyone still uses it.

I'm basically just using it to overlay some text and short video clips on top of a blank template image I drew in paint, and then stack them all up next to each other in a grid.

I don't know who made that list. I hadn't even heard of half those games before, but it was interesting researching them to get the info for this chart.

>> No.4143515

there's an actual reason that generation is basically ignored -- it was wildly unsuccessful (Colecovision was on its way to potential success, but they fucked themselves over with the ADAM being shit, all combined with the US game market crashing due to oversaturation)
ultimately, all those machines should be considered the start of the third generation (hell, the SG-1000 came out the same day as the Famicom)

>> No.4143560

Jesus Christ man, that's an amazing job.

>> No.4143576

Really nice, thank you.

>> No.4143631

The argument seems to be that there's a tech gap, that the systems of the early 80s like Colecovision were more advanced to the point of being visually different in a big way from the systems of the late 70s. Since there's a similar tech gap between e.g. Famicom and SG-1000 graphics or Atari 5200 and 7800, it would be weird to use that argument to put "generation 2.5" inside the third generation.

I think the conclusion we should take from this idea of a "lost generation" is that the video game market was crashed by not just over-saturation, but a too-fast upgrade cycle not justified by the technology of the time. It makes no sense to release a new console every five years when you have 15 competitors and nobody has enough market share to support an "ecosystem." The Atari 2600 was vastly more successful than the "superior" 5200 because it had enough time to breathe, even if it didn't have room to breathe between all the competitors.

By the 80s, Nintendo went onto a sufficiently slow release cycle to give their consoles time to grow and build market share. Sega slowed their release cycle slightly and for a while enjoyed major success, but then they started to speed it up again out of fear of competition, which led to disaster for them. They released too many add-ons for the Mega Drive, pushed the Saturn out too soon to beat Sony to market, and awkwardly squeezed the Dreamcast out half a generation early on top of that. You could say that Nintendo's biggest failure of recent years has been the Wii U and that even that failure was caused by a poorly timed release cycle. The relative success of the Switch does show how a brand can recover from a passed-over generation, however (in a way that Sega and Atari mostly failed to do).

what's a good emulator for saturn? I tried compiling yabause on xcode because the latest build (from 2014...) didn't work on sierra

>> No.4148106

No such thing, especially if you are looking for open source. SSF is an old windows-only saturn emulator from Japan that has the best compatibility. You need decent hardware to make 3D games playable. More recently Mednafen has a Saturn core that is currently under development and getting better. Most people will tell you it's not quite as good as SSF yet. That's probably your best shot in the long run though.

Yabause is an older free/open source Saturn emulator that unfortunately has bad compatibility and performance. I think I have used it in the past to play Saturn Bomberman with 10 players though, since it had easy-to-set-up multitap support. But it's not going to be very good for anything graphically complex. You often have to disable entire video layers just to see the polygons on the screen.

The original Bomberman is lackluster in... everything. No multiplayer, only one map and enemies. Which makes sense, since it was the first (well not really but you know what I mean) game but the game is still a slog to play through and doesn't get fun until you get the fire vest and become unstoppable and even that gets boring. It's not an absolutely terrible game, but there's no real reason to play it over the others.

They are bargain bin games with minimal branding and advertising that were churned out en masse and sold at fixed bargain prices that were printed all over the box (1500 yen at that time, about $15).
They're cheap games of sketchy provenance--if there were ever going to be a real haunted/cursed game, it probably wouldn't say Konami or Capcom on the box, and it probably wouldn't make it onto the shelves next to well known full-price games.

I wonder how crash bandicoot works so fast on so weak hardware. They written it on lisp, so I guess they was writing it in FP style, so they used immutable data structures.

>> No.4170159

>I wonder how crash bandicoot works so fast on so weak hardware
Because the game is on-rails you can pre-compute depth / occlusion to eliminate overdraw. That is to say, the game engine never draws a pixel that ends up gets overdrawn by another one - so rendering is super efficient. The game also doesn't have to calculate depth, saving processing time.

Also that LISP scripting engine would have had to be written in ASM by Naughty Dog, so they pretty much wrote the game in ASM but made scripting game events easier for themselves.

I used scripts and command line tools like imagemagick to build the charts I made. Probably not what everyone else does, but it seems like it would be very tedious to lay everything out in a photo editor like GIMP and get all the spacing etc. pixel perfect.

Another option I've considered but not experimented enough with yet is writing up charts in a markup language like HTML or LaTeX. I think that would be very convenient for the ease with which you'd be able to edit the content or change the layout after the fact. Using a vector graphics editor like Inkscape or Illustrator might be a GUI-based way to achieve similar results, but I don't know anything about those sorts of programs.
