> Fellow Japanese Saturn owning bro

Based. I picked up pic related last year to replace one I had to sell a few years ago when I hit some hard times financially. I didn't want to pay ridiculous prices for physical games, so I picked up a MODE and have been loving it ever since. I also snagged a white 3d control pad and an official 1MB and 4MB RAM cart. I also picked up a Netlink and a cheap VOIP router to give online play a shot at some point.

> What are you playing
I just finished the English translation of SotN. It was interesting to see the differences between the US PS1 version and the Japanese Saturn version. I've also been playing Darius Gaiden for the first time and I'm having fun even though I suck ass at shooters. Also, playing Sega Rally from time to time because it's literally the perfect game.

> Sonic Jam worth picking up
Not for the price people are asking for a physical copy. Spend your money on an ODE instead. That said, it's a lot of fun playing classic Sonic games (even if they have a few slight differences from the Genesis versions), and it's one of the few ways to be able to play S3&K.

NiGHTs comes from an era where you were expected to actually read the manual before playing the game, instead of the modern game design where the first half hour is a hand-holding tutorial.

Most people who think Nights is a shitty game don't actually know how to play it, and they get confused and think it's just about flying in circles.

COPE. Sega fucked giving a game like this such great music and art. They were right to abandon this piece of garbage. It feels like a bad bonus level from a Sonic game.

>> No.7418740

>read the manual
nonsense. Nights literally has TWO controls: Movement and dashing. An analog stick and one button. A fucking Atari 2600 controller could play it it's that simple.
Give anyone the game, be they an experienced lifelong gamer or amateur and they will fucking crumble and aimlessly wander around the first level. There is no excuse for design that shoddy given the simplicity of the control scheme.
Again going back to Mario, Super Mario Bros legitimately has more complex controls but is so fucking intuitive and has such a well designed opening stage that literally anybody should be able to grasp nearly all the mechanics after less than 4 minutes of playing because 1-1 teaches you everything naturally. Nights has no such elegance because it's a piece of garbage.

Quit imagining video game tutorials are all Twilight Princess nonsense where the game wastes 3 hours of your time with slow baby text and locking you in until you do what the game is repeatedly telling you to do.

Displaying a letter that tells you how bad you sucked at the game doesn't remotely teach you how to play the game. It says you played it wrong but it definitely doesn't tell you how to do it right. Where do you go? What is the goal of the game? How do you play? What are the mechanics?

Dreamcast was a great system. Sadly it did not have many worthwhile games. Focus is on lite gaming crap like crazy taxi/space channel 5/jetset radio. Which might be fun for a while.

> Sonic
Yeah, we know, the lack of a mainline Sonic game was a really stupid decision for the Saturn. Everyone was up their own ass about 3D back in the mid 90s, but I think Sega would have fared better if they had just given us a solid 2.5d Sonic game instead of wasting literal years on Fisheye bullshit and corporate infighting
> Streets of Rage
Streets of Rage IV was actually in development for the Saturn. There is some conflicting information on how it all went down (depending on who you talk to), but basically Sega farmed it out to Core Design, but Core wanted to release it on multiple platforms instead of being a Saturn exclusive, so Sega canned the deal. Core changed the characters and released the game as Fighting Force.
> Sports Games
The Saturn had plenty of sports games, from NBA, NHL, Madden, MLB, NASCAR, etc
> Toejam and Earl
Sega doesn't own Toejam and Earl, they merely published the Genesis games. It wasn't up to them whether or not a new game in the series was released
> Golden Axe
The Saturn literally had a Golden Axe game (although it was a one on one fighter), but I'll give you this one as it would have been nice to have more sidescrolling beat 'em ups on the console. We got games like Die Hard Arcade in the US, but the Saturn had a ton of good 2D scrollers, the problem was they were all Japanese exclusives thanks to that fat retard Stolar
> Licensed games
Plenty of licensed games on the Saturn, Castle of Illusion even got a port (along with Quack Shot) in the Sega Ages series, but again it was a Japanese exclusive
> Flashy games
You just named two more sidescrollers. It would have been nice to see a new Vectorman on the Saturn though, especially considering how much of a letdown the second game was compared to the first
> Bloody/adult games
There were three Mortal Kombat games on the Saturn, and it also had games like Snatcher, Loaded, Crusader: No Remorse, Corpse Killer, and an uncensored version of Duke Nukem 3D.

>> No.7421784

As a Saturn owner, I really feel bad about not giving it more attention back in the day. I got a Saturn when the Dreamcast was coming out and a friend of a friends brother was selling his Saturn and collection of games and I bought it all for like 25$ in total.

For 25$ I got a model 2 US system (round buttons is 2nd model, yes?) a ActionReplay cart, 2 2nd model controllers, a boxed Virtua Cop 2 with light gun + 3rd party gun, the system was boxed and must have came from when Sega was really shilling them to sell, because it also came with NiGHTs, Virtua Cop, Daytona and Virtual Fighter 2 as all pack ins, hell of a deal id say if you bought it new.

For that same 25$, beyond what I already listed, it came with a number of games. I forget how many were from that initial buy, but I did get with it: Bug 2, Mega Man 8, Shining Wisdom, Sega Rally, Albert Odyssey, Myst, Blazing Heroes some baseball game and I think some other titles, but cant remember if I got them later. All in all, not bad for 25$, though back then I imagine most didnt give a shit what Saturn stuff was worth in the US. I remember being a bit pissed though cause the bundle also came with the cases for Tomb Raider and Legend of Oasis and being pissed the game discs were not inside them. I did get a copy of TR later but still have not found a reasonable priced disc-only copy of Oasis yet and i dont want to pay for a complete copy if i got the case.

So I still say I was disappointed in not playing more of the Saturn back then. Like I played everything I got in the bundle and really enjoyed the system and I was frequently buying games for all kinds of systems back then from the golden era of flea markets and thrift stores for games, but I just hardly ever found Saturn stuff for sale. I think I picked up only a handful of games in like a 5-10 year period after getting the system, and was dumb stuff like Space Jam or The Horde, not exactly impressive titles for it.

>> No.7421802

OH how retarded I was to not get into the importing scene back in the day, because thats where all the Saturn games were I really would have loved playing. 2D games. Thing was, even back on the shitty WebTV internet I had back then, I did frequent ebay in its early days, but was mostly buying Nintendo shit off it like NES games and Virtual Boy stuff. Was more a novelty at the time rather then used as an actual resource to get games, but I imagine back then getting imports through that site was still fairly rare and I was too retarded to look into finding alternate websites that had imports. Even with US releases, I was too stupid to actually use this resource to find games for the Saturn I would have wanted to play, but just never found in person. Plus, when the Dreamcast bombed and people were selling them off in late 2001/2002, thats when I got a used one of those and that system held my attention much more with the games being easier to find for it to play, so Saturn just kinda sat there between it and the Genesis as my least played Sega system, even less then the Game Gear (didnt have a master system)

Years later, I moved to a bigger city and I was able to get more Saturn games from a local game shop, but I do regret not buying the stuff I wanted back then, some of which I was aware of at the time. Only recently have I begun importing a bunch of the cheaper Saturn titles, like the good shit first party stuff you can get for under 30$ still, but I realize I will probably never drop the cash for the bigger name titles I would want to own, like Super Tempo.

I did save a roach-encrusted model 1 US Saturn from the garbage heap that my local game store was going to throw out, so I think some day I clean it up nice and install one of those virtual disc drives on it for the shit il never want to pay for.

All in all, I loved what I played on the Saturn, but I wish I had really dived into its deeper library before I got distracted by other shit.

The best ports of 2D fighting games from the era (especially Capcom 2D fighters). If you were into fighting games at the time you pretty much had to buy a Saturn, because your only other options were paying $800 for a Neo Geo (and not getting Capcom games), or buying a PS1 and getting absolutely butchered ports that would be missing tons of frames of animation and/or entire characters or game modes.

If you're into 2D shooters than the system is a goldmine as well. A lot of them are Japanese exclusives, but are still entirely playable.

A lot of people don't really know this, but weirdly enough the Sega Saturn was kind of the go-to home system for console ports of famous PC FPS games of the era. It had a port of Quake (that pushed more level geometry than the N64 version), Duke Nukem 3D (that ran better than the PS1 version and wasn't censored like the N64 version, and as a bonus had online play), Powerslave (which ran better and had more content than the PS1 version), Alien Trilogy, and Hexen (which ran better than the PS1 version, but both of them kinda ran like shit so it's a wash). The Doom port was a disaster, but that's an entirely different story.

To add to your point, the Saturn version, despite technically being a entirely different game than the PC version (kinda like the competing versions of Aladdin during 4th gen), is universally considered to be a better game than the PC version.
>The Doom port was a disaster, but that's an entirely different story.
Apparently, the Doom port was going to be much better than the final product, but Carmack had the port's developer change something he didn't like, which ended up making them need to scrap pretty much all of their work and start over from scratch and crunch against a deadline. In retrospect, Carmack admitted he made a mistake. Alas, the source code for that original version is lost forever.

>> No.7426107

Not sure why you'd need to import a JP model. Assuming you're in NA, I don't think old NA models are particularly hard/costly to find. As for a game piracy solution, ideally one would get a Satiator or a Terraonion MODE, but they're kinda pricey. I guess a Pseudosaturn is good enough until you can afford a Satiator.

>> No.7426121

Yeah, Carmack's autism is why the Doom port on the Saturn runs like ass. It's basically running in software mode instead of using the Saturn's graphical hardware.

The original version that was submitted to id for approval had all of the PC level's from Doom and Doom II without any changes or cuts, and it was running in full frame at 60fps, but Carmack didn't like the texture warping and demanded that the game be redone, but because they were pressed for time at that point they were basically forced to just port the PS1 version (which was itself a port of the Jaguar version if I remember right) to the Saturn and cut a bunch of stuff so they could release on time.

It's sad that the original version that they sent to id for approval is lost. I still hold out hope that some developer will stumble across some old hard drive in the back of a closet or buried under a pile of shit in a garage and it might yet see the light of day. Instead of getting what would have likely been the best port of Doom to hit 32 bit consoles we instead got a shitty mess that runs at 10-15fps and is missing a ton of features, all because John Carmack went hard r retard for no reason.

Honestly though I think we'd be more likely to see a homebrew port of Doom at this point, maybe using the Hellslave engine. Who knows.

Not him, but the biggest reason to get a Japanese Saturn is that both the model 1 and model 2 systems look fucking sick as hell.

If you're using a PSK cart or an ODE there is literally no difference between an NA and JPN system*. They both run on 120v so you don't need any power converters, you'll just need to change the system language from Japanese to English the first time you fire it up, and any time your internal save battery dies. Peripherals like controllers or memory cards are region free, and both PSK and ODEs can auto region patch games on the fly, so you don't need to worry about what region your burned or ripped games are in.

*There is actually one difference, Die Hard Arcade reads what region your system's BIOS is from, and displays it's QTE prompts in that language. This means if you get a Japanese Saturn it will display Japanese text during the QTE prompts no matter what language you have your system set to. That is, as far as I know, the only game that does this, but you can just memorize the symbols (it's just three, punch, kick, or jump).

Cutscenes are the same resolution as the Japanese version. Grandia uses a weird custom MPEG codec where the FMVs are 352x176? for the fullscreen ones and 352x144 for the letterboxed ones. The fullscreen ones run at 10fps and the letterboxed ones run at 12fps. The game however uses the 352x448i resolution mode along with VDP2 trickery to stretch the video to it's 4:3 or 16:9 aspect ratio.

The main thing with the RC patches is that the FMVs now have subtitles on them as the codec was figured out enough to re-encode them.

So Jon is talking about the DSP (Digital Signal Processor) which he explained in a separate video. Basically the documentation shows each line can have 4 *types* of instructions, but doesn't explain that each type can have two instructions written into that space.

Basically, if one section for a type has say, three possible instructions and each instruction is represented by one bit and the space allotted to storing the instruction(s) you want is three bits, you can "encode" or combine multiple instructions in those three bits since there's no 'overlap'

For example
>001 -> instruction 1
>010 -> instruction 2
>100 -> instruction 3
Are all the instructions that "type" understands, but if we did
>101 -> instruction 1 & 3
Then we've set the three bits to "flag" that we want both instruction 1 and instruction 3 to run. This had to be intentional on Sega's part, because you can represent three instructions (that aren't intended to be combined) as a 2-bit opcode.

I get why people would have a problem with that, but it's not the translator's job to remove stuff from the original material, its just not their place to do that. Translators have to treat the original material as an artefact that they need to translate with as little loss of meaning and nuance as possible so people can get the full sense of it, if they started censoring stuff because it's not considered acceptable in the culture the aretfact is being translated for, then calling it a translation would be incorrect, it would be an 'adaption'.

It really depends on how the Japanese use a word like "newhalf", even as slang it's connotation might not be as "aggressive" as calling someone a tranny would imply.

Yeah unfortunately the Saturn just contained a lot of hardware so it's hard to emulate, there's like 6 major components (2 CPUs, 2 VDPs, a 68k sound controller and a DSP) that all needs to run and be synchronised which makes it pretty complex to program as well as for a computer to run.

I purchased a Fenrir ODE and a Japanese Model 1 to go with it, easily the best investment I've made, because now I can actually enjoy the saturn without paying a fucking fortune to do so. I generally refuse to buy disk drive emulators or flash carts because I enjoy owning the physical copies, but for stuff like the Jaguar, 3DO, and Saturn it's an absolute must, considering how much they cost now to own, and how the bigger games you'd want are buttfuck expensive.

I bought a MODE because I didn't want to have to deal with burning CDRs and worrying about my laser eventually dying. The convenience of having all of the games I want to play in a curated list on my screen is pretty nice as well.

As a side bonus, although it's mitigated significantly by the slow BUS speed from the Saturn's optical drive to the motherboard, you do get slightly reduced loadtimes in games when played from an ODE due to being able to both completely saturate the BUS as well as not have to deal with seek times on a disc.

Also you don't have to be the guy who's still burning discs in 2021 like some kind of troglodyte.

It's because the system has so many different chips that need to be emulated and timed just right or the whole thing will fall apart. It also doesn't help that it renders 3D in a completely unconventional way.

There are other emulators out there that will run on weaker hardware, but they run like glitchy messes because of it.

Just got my first sega saturn, came with daytona USA and man, I'm glad I got one, I've owned tons of retro stuff, but never had a saturn until now and it's easy to imagine how impressive this console would have been back in the day, the rendition of daytona USA is currently like the only game I have but man it's fun.

I've got myself an action replay plus and would appreciate some like budget game recommendations, stuff I probably don't know about, I'm into lots of stuff, I've already ordered some of the more well known stuff sega rally championship, virtua fighter 2, gonna get vampire hunter next because it's a cheap capcom fighter, not much more to say.

Bit of a weird question, but do you guys have any tips for saturn daytona USA? I find the best way to take corners is brake fairly in advance, tap left to slightly initiate a drift then let go of both brake as far on the outside of the corner as you can, and begin to accelerate moving back and forth on the d-pad in order to stabilise the car and then going flat out. I find though, you have to get really good at this in order to win though. Getting consistent 17 second laps. The closest to first I've gotten is 5th, I know I can do it if I keep working on it.

Saturn emulation is shit, I recommend you just go and look at auctions on Yahoo Auctions Japan for a while until you get a good deal. If you live in the US the console's original power supply will work fine, even though the case says 100v only, the internal power supply says 100-120v and is the same as in the US Saturn. If you live in any country with around 200v, you can buy a SaturnPSU which is an adapter that makes you able to run the console from a 12v external power supply.

Just because you can play castlevania from start to finish, doesnt mean that 32-Bit emulation is good.
