Most of the Street Fighters are good.

Sonic Jam is fun, albeit the games are ported a little unoptimized (seems to be the worst with Sonic 2).

Should check out the racing games for sure (Sega Rally, Daytona), although they are somewhat light on content.

And I like Sega's light gun games personally (even HotD).

Which model did you get? Don't buy physical Saturn games, the market is too bloated and you'll be stuck paying $50 a piece or more for good games. Take the ODE pill and your life will be so much better. Alternately, get a Pseudosaturn cart and then you can play burned games, but compatibility isn't 100%, and you don't want to be the guy burning CDRs in 2021.

Also, how the fuck are we supposed to recommend you good games if we don't know what genres you like?

This meme isn't funny, no matter how hard you desperately try and force it.

It's not the best, but it has enough new content that it's definitely worth checking out (especially now that the English translation is finished).

ODE's don't have 100% compatibility either. Mod Chips are the only thing with 100% compatibility at this point.

>> No.7253484

MODE has 100% compatibility, I'm pretty sure Deunan's do as well. I know that the Satiator has issues with a few games but I think Fenrir is 100% as well except for Bug! if I remember right.

The new Lunar fan translation is not working on all ODEs, but that's because the author didn't build it right, and they're currently fixing the problem.

The only real issue ODEs have is it makes it more difficult to play Croc, but that's due to a software issue in the game itself (which occurs on all Saturn systems in all media formats).

I got this one. My only concern is it's 100v but I'm in the usa so it'll get 120v. I'm hoping the extra voltage won't make it heat up or damage it. Planning to get MODE and I love every genre. Especially fighters and shmups.

The author built it just fine. It runs on a modded Saturn with a CD-R. The ODE is not 100% compatible.

>> No.7253506

>> No.7253508

If it works on a real Saturn with a $20 mod chip on a CD-R, but doesn't work on your expensive ODE, then your ODE is not 100% compatible and is doing something wrong.

Jap Saturn chads RISE UP

You're fine, Japanese Saturns can run on 120v without issue (both regions share power supplies). You can also grab a mobius replacement PSU for like $80 if you ever run into trouble with your power supply and aren't capable of recapping it.

MODE is civilization. My advice to you is to only use redump images (they are an example of what can happen when the power of intense autism is harnessed for good), and only put games on your SD card/hard drive/USB stick that you know you will play, or know you will want to play. If you just throw the entire US/PAL/JAP catalogue onto your storage device you're gonna be hit with decision paralysis hard every time you boot it up, and it'll also take fucking forever to scroll through the menu.

Also, MODE can backup the Saturn's internal memory to an SD card now, so make sure to back up your saves every once in a while in case your battery dies (or you need to do a swap).

I'm sorry you can't handle the fact that your $200 ODE is less compatible than a $20 mod chip.

> It doesn't work on a poorly built fan hack, therefor it's not 100% compatible

You are stupid. Probably autistic, but definitely stupid. Also, the community is fixing the translation, so if it isn't compatible now it will be in a few days.

>> No.7253530

> It doesn't work on a poorly built fan hack
The fan hack was built properly using Sega's official build tools. Try again.

>> No.7253531

If it was built to the same standard as official Saturn games than it would work on ODEs. Use your head.

If the ODEs implemented their security check the same way mod chips have for the past 20+ years it would work fine too. Mod chips send the spoofed ring at boot during the security check and only then like they should. Pseudo Saturn does this as well. And the System Disc disables the security check entirely.

Instead the ODEs appear to be doing something dumb and sending the spoofed security ring every time a call to an address at or above that region of the disc is issued, which is not accurate to how a real Saturn behaves. After passing the security check, a real Saturn will read whatever data is on the disc at that sector, whether it's a security ring, CD Audio, or game data. Sega's standard for size is simply to allow enough space for a security ring. But since at this point we're talking about playing a fan patch that's on either a burned disc or an ODE, the security ring becomes meaningless. So there's no reason a patch, hack, or homebrew game shouldn't be able to use that extra space for things like improved FMV quality and what not. But to work on an ODE, the patch creators now have to lower FMV quality and start ripping out files they hope aren't used and hope the game will still run, even though it works just fine on a Saturn running off a CD.

In short, the patch works on the following:
A Stock Saturn using a Pseudo Saturn Cart.
A Stock Saturn using a System Disc.
A Saturn with a Mod Chip.
A Stock Saturn using a Satiator.

So is the patch built wrong? Or is the ODE not accurately emulating how a real Saturn with a real disc drive behaves?

>> No.7253646

The doom port could have been good. But they decided to put god awful music in it.

>> No.7253647

And another fun fact. The patch will work on your ODE if you load up a System Disc image first to properly disable the security check, the way the ODE should have done it in the first place.

>> No.7253650

The Lunar fan translation has already been fixed, and works with ODEs now, so we can drop the autism already anon.

>> No.7253657

The patch has been "fixed" by having FMV quality lowered and files ripped out. And until the ODEs fix the way they handle their security checks, it's just a matter of time until the the next patch doesn't work.

The point is, the ODE is not 100% compatible with how a real Saturn with a real disc drive behaves.

>> No.7253676

No it hasn't, you don't know what you are talking about. The FMVs for Lunar were all reincoded to remove the borders and are higher quality now.

I know this is 4chan and all, but really dude, I don't ask much, all I want is for people to actually know what the hell they are talking about before they post. That's it. I don't think that's too much to ask.

>> No.7253692

Some of the bigger FMVs had their frame rates reduced from 24fps to 15fps and the data rates lowered to shave down the data. PCM files that are thought to be unneeded were also removed.

Why don't you actually take a look at the CPK files between the broken and fixed versions?

>> No.7253756

Are you talking about US Saturn games? If so, it's because they didn't sell well in the first place, the unusual box size caused a lot of copies to be damaged or tossed, and for English speakers those are the only copies available. Supply, demand, and e-celebs causing a dip in the former and rise in the latter all contribute to the fucked prices. Most Japanese stuff is relatively cheap or at the very least haven't jumped in price much in the last twenty years. I got a mint, 100% complete copy of Puyo Puyo Sun for like $20 from a US seller. I think the best version of Daytona USA tops out at $40 if it's totally complete. Satakore has a VERY detailed listing of what every game included in the case. If you're not a fullblown collectorfag like me things get cheaper unless you go chasing Taromaru or some of the other weird collector's edition box sets.
You're very right as the Japanese library is phenomenal.
As for recommendations, Vampire Savior is a pretty solid port though fighting game purists will complain that it has some vague inaccuracies and some resolution compromises. Groove On Fight is another stylish fighting game that differs a bit more from its arcade release but it's still fun and has tag mechanics. The Saturn version of Dead or Alive is solid too. Fighters Megamix is basically a Sega 3D fighting game on drugs.
If you learn moon you can play Devil Summoner and Soul Hackers. If you hate yourself you can play Ronde, which is comically dog shit.
Dragon Force is a great strategy RPG, even with Working Designs fucking with it.
IIRC the Konami arcade ports are typically better on the PS1. Additionally, a lot of games abuse composite video to achieve transparency effects.

I have a MODE so I don't have to worry about compatibility issues, but in terms of the Fenrir and compatibility/disc swapping it's really overblown.
