I've died numerous times while taking a piss because of this.

And when you pause the game you get this funky beat

>music restarts
I understand why this can be much easier to program than pausing the music but it still triggers me

>> No.7781474


How else would you do it?
What controller can send commands directly to the CPU?

>How else would you do it?
Can't speak for Anon but I can think of a number of ways. I have several devices that do slow motion without just pulsing the start button.
>What controller can send commands directly to the CPU?
One that's connected "directly to the CPU" obviously, dumbass. But that's not necessary. You really don't understand what you're talking about. You're just stringing random words you've heard together, shit rooster.

The point is that a lot of '80s kids were probably expecting a less low-tech solution. Also, that would be completely useless for a game without a pause function or with the pause assigned to a button other than the standard one.

>> No.7782251

It was funny how that worked for some games and not all. Games with long pause cooldowns (Street Fighter 2 immediately comes to mind) were just fucking lol

>How else would you do it?
Don't false advertise for starters, literally just call it turbo-pause. When people scratch their head at how fucking stupid it is, at least they shouldn't be surprised at what theyre getting.

>> No.7782325

First of all, the mute button is not relevant to anything discussed in the thread so far. Your post sounds ESL, so you might have misunderstood. Second, even if it were relevant, many kids grew up in the 1980s with their only remote being a non-universal cable remote which didn't directly control their television and had no mute button. Cable wasn't even offered in my town until the late '80s. If I wanted to change the channel or the volume, I had to get up and go over to the television itself.

Load that into MAME and just push "P".

>> No.7784429

Lol. If you're triggered by people who say those things about video games, why don't you just ignore them and keep playing video games? Just live your best life, you bitter goof.

(Unless you secretly get off on outrage and drama because the adrenaline of the anger is actually really fun and addicting and you haven't learned this about yourself yet.)
