It has a surprising number of nuances that make it feel a little special, like many other 90s engines. I like how ledges have a subtle roundness to them which allows for landing compensation on them.

My favorite weapon is the Bezier, the sprinkling bending laser is such a cool visual and it tears apart everything that comes at you.

Of course Quake and DN3D on Saturn are worse than their original PC versions. But if you really like A) the Saturn B) those games C) old games in general, you would actually enjoy theses games and their engine. They singlehandledy shut up any one who claims "the Saturn can't into 3D", especially considering Saturn Quake is better than N64 Quake.

As for Powerslave the Saturn version is the original version the game was designed for. The PS1 version has some nice differences and is worth playing for those alone but is worse in almost every aspect, especially the "no fun allowed" decision to get rid of bomb jumping instead of embracing it and creating secret places designed around it like they did on Saturn.
Most people on this board have only played the PC "port" of the PS1 version however, which is an amateur unaccurate glitchy recreation in a beta state; which was based on the inferior version of the game to begin with. So I don't think 4chan zoomers have any lesson to give in terms of "why are you playing that version", especially regarding FPS games. People on this board would rather play ZBlood than NBlood.

I’ve got two Japanese Sega Saturns, bought them off of Buyee.jp (Yahoo Auction, but Americans can use it). One is in storage in another state. The other one is at home and is awaiting the MODE I pre ordered a little while back. In the mean time I’ve got Panzer Dragoon Zwei and The Game Paradise (shmup) to play on. I have a JVC TM-H150CG CRT and a VGA computer monitor, I use both with the Saturn. The VGA is through the OSSC and an HDMI to VGA adapter. It looks great on either tube, but I think I prefer using the JVC, as it’s built perfectly for 240p content, which the Saturn strives at. The VGA monitor is better suited for Dreamcast and the rest of 6th gen, which it completely excels at. All in all I’m very pleased with my Saturn Setup, it looks amazing on any display you put it on, and the games are great.

Are there any other games that have a fictional world with an atmosphere similar to that of the Panzer Dragoon series? The closest thing Ive seen is Nausicaa(both are Moebius inspired) which isnt even a game.

I think what works about Panzer Dragoon is how little is said but how much is implied. It feels like somewhere deep in some Sega vaults there's a massive bible for Panzer Dragoon, and we've seen glimpses of it here and there, and each Panzer game provides a window into a part of it.

Maybe try El Shaddai Ascension of the Metatron.

I wouldn't recommend working on anything without the required skills, experience, and tools. Tools will depend very much on your skills and experience. I can do it with a $5 soldering iron and some wick. Other people who consider themselves experts manage to fuck it up using expensive tools. I'd like to say don't risk doing the work yourself and send it to an expert but you'll need to make sure that "expert" can actually manage it without fucking it up or be prepared to accept a patchwork of fixes to a botched job.

You definitely want experience before attempting that one. Sega epoxied the chip to the board on numerous revisions and the only way to tell if yours is epoxied or not is to remove it. Forcing it off could tear up a bunch of traces.

Back in 1996, all I knew about the Saturn was what I played: Panzer Dragoon, Astal, and Nights. All pretty boring games, so I assumed the system sucked, since everything else for it seemed to be western dev shovelware.
Today I recognize that it is a very great system that was misused to create 3d shovelware. Only problem is that I've played most of the awesome arcade conversions that aren't fighting games to death by now, they really didn't do enough of them. I have a similar issue with the Saturn that I have with the Neo Geo, really. I don't care about Fighting Games, so a system based around being the best at that genre only has so much of an appeal.

>What are you playing?
I recently got/discovered Savaki. It is simple but a nice polygon fighting game. Haven't really played it too much, but it is nice in short bursts.

>What kind of Saturn setup do you have?
I have like 4 Saturn systems, all the earlier oval model. One is an early Victor release, a Japanese grey, and two US black one of which was modded back in '96 to have a physical switch to flip between US and Japan regions. I have a couple of Rhea ODEs, but haven't installed them since the Phoebe fits more of the Saturns I have. I do have a MODE on the way, and I am trying to save up for one of those Pseudo Saturn carts, but I have to research into them more since I remember reading something was up with the red carts.

>Favorite games?
I cannot choose, that's why I have over 350 of them on the system. I still desire about 60 more, but at this point they are almost all overpriced for a minimum wage earner.

>Games you think deserve more love?
Culdcept does not get enough love. It is a fantastic board/card game that started on the Saturn, but it had special releases on the Playstation, and later sequels released on Dreamcast, PS2, and Xbox 360. The PS2 and 360 sequels released in English, yet still only the few people I have introduced the game to all get addicted, yet the game stays unpopular with most.

Me too. Like Bizarre Creations and Core they are a Brit studio put a lot of love, talent, and effort into Sega games only to go belly up.

I really like the sense of "weight" that you have in DN3D compared to other console ports. The movement just feels so much better compared to the PS1 or N64 versions.

I think it's a mixture of a tiny bit of continued movement after the player takes their thumb off of the d-pad, plus a tiny bit of camera tilting that make the movement feel more "realistic".

Depends if you find outsmarting and conquering challenges with planning and seeing it all come together satisfying. That's the entire battle system, understanding vulnerable zones, managing enemy movement patterns and their weaknesses while managing your dragon form. There's literally no other RPG like it. When your plan works well, you're rewarded with more EXP and money and items. When your performance sucks, you're punished.

If you wanna play doom or quake or some shit you can either play a good port or you can go for the original PC version for authenticity, what purpose is there in playing something that's both inauthentic and inferior, unless you're a kid in the 90s with a Saturn and no PC?

Again, you're incapable of understanding that others may feel differently about things than you do. This is a textook symptom.

I can understand that people can have stupid and objectively incorrect opinions without respecting them.

There are two reasonable ways to play an old game. Let's use Donkey Kong as an example. You can either play it the authentic way, which would be to play it on an actual arcade machine, or you can go for a way that adds (subjective) improvements, such as convenience or reconfigurable controls, like playing Donkey Kong in an emulator.

Playing Donkey Kong on the Atari 2600 is neither of those things. There is zero reason for anybody in 2020 to ever play it. The same goes for old console ports of games. They're neither authentic, nor do they provide any additional value over the original.

At the moment I have a black American Sega Saturn that I've owned since 1997. It's the oldest console I keep hooked up and it's equipped with an Action Replay 4M Plus (the kind with the serial port on top).

I recently bought a gray Saturn from Japan that won't read discs (after buying another black US Saturn that turned out to be fine and I felt guilty about using it for ODE purposes). I intend to put a MODE in it as I'm interested in original hardware but not collecting actual games anymore.

OK so I'm kinda confused. For context I'm in the UK and about 7 few years ago I bought a PAL Saturn yes I'm a retard who wastes money. I didn't really do much with it, but it came with the Action Replay cartridge and a mix of PAL and NTSC-J games so naturally I just kept the cart in all the time. A while back I took the cart out and went to play a Jap game, to my surprise it booted up. I tried putting in a PAL game and it didn't. I checked the system settings and the version is NTSC-1-V1.01a. Now I'm inclined to think that this is the American version as I can't really find it in black and white (might just me being dim) but when it boots up it uses the Western logo. There doesn't appear to be a switch of any kind on it to change regions either. Now I've noticed PAL games tend to cut off a bit while I play them, for example I own both PAL and NTSC-J versions of Sonic Jam and the Japanese version is fine but straight away when I boot up the PAL version the menu is cut off and I can't see the Sonic World option. The main question I have is that if I get an American game, will it run properly with the AR cart in, without any slowdown or screen being cut off? Anyone ever had any experience with this? I had no idea the console was modded in any way.

Are you sure you didn't just buy a modded American Saturn that ended up in the UK somehow?

If it has a BIOS mod it may be internal.

I'm inclined to think it's European purely because it has a CE Mark. Also I just used my PAL Dreamcast power supply since it didn't come with one, I'm assuming if it was American it would cause issues due to voltages and stuff (not sure about that).

I've opened it up twice, the first time I must've fucked something up because it would constantly freeze and stuff, the disc drive would constantly spin even with the tray open. I opened it up again and just closed it back up which seemed to fix it, but I'm honestly hesitant to do it again. I did look at a teardown video just to see if there were any mods but nothing stuck out. I might try a burned game tomorrow. I would've just bought a US copy of Sonic Jam to compare with my other 2 but not at that fucking price.

I keep my hoarded dumps separate from other shit so I was able to quickly locate something missing from that torrent. It's also missing from redumps missing list so I guess it's not going to ever get dumped until they discover it exists and get hold of a copy. I'm suspect that if I can find one in 30 seconds there's more but can't be bothered to check. But don't worry bucko. If redump ever dumps everything I have I'll be happy to acknowledge it.

Ebay. Some nip named "entame_oukoku". It was shipping from Japan to Oregon, so I assumed it would take forever, but from the time I clicked "buy it now" to the time I was opening the box was less than a week. The picture really doesn't do it justice, it's in impeccable shape. I was very surprised. Outside of the yellowing on the memory cart it could have come straight out of a retail box.

Meanwhile, I ordered a Japanese 3D controller from a different seller and the guy sent me a message after I bought it saying that Japan Post isn't shipping to the US because of covid, so he would use "another way" to get it to a US warehouse and ship it from there, and that it may take "4 to 6 weeks" for it to arrive (meaning it's on a fucking cargo ship). I was tempted to cancel the order, but it was a really good deal and it looks like it's in excellent condition, so I'll just wait.

Should I get a Fenrir or a MODE?

I have the right kind of Saturn and the Fenrir is cheaper. However one game doesn't work with the system and it's one game I was hoping to try (since it correlates with one of my earliest memories of the console and I never got to try the full game since).

Also that game is typically regarded as horse shit.

It's the only truly incompatible game I can see on the Fenrir's comptaibility list (every other incompatible game listed is purely due to in-game disc swapping required).

However, that list also doesn't extend to the end of the Saturn library (the list doesn't even go far enough to rate the compatibility of the Street Fighter games on the system) so maybe there's more that simply aren't listed.

I’m surprised Fenrir has issues with in-game disc swaps given how mundane MODE’s solution is (the Saturn has a lid catch detector so all you have to do is throw every disc in the same directory then open and close the lid to change discs, very simple).

>> No.6989090

>>6989073
To go along with this, I have a suspicion that (at least at first) Fenrir’s solution to this will be the primitive “queue every disc before launching” method rather than going the autodetection route of just realizing if a directory is populated with multiple images and the lid catch is triggered in-game, load the next image in sequence.

You're full of shit, but if you're not full of shit an English translation plus the recent hack that lets the game utilize the 4MB RAM cart would be a pretty nice combo.

I've always wanted to see the new areas that were added to the Saturn version, but having to work through the moonspeak and go by icons only for the numerous weapons and items you get over the course of the game would be a huge pain in the ass. Of course the game gets a Brazilian translation before it gets an English one because who knows.

I wonder how a version of the game that was designed from the ground up to run on the Saturn would have been, compared to the rushed port we ended up getting.
