^ Looks pretty nice, and inexpensive too. Thanks for the information.

I will try to get one when the opportunity arises.

A PS1 controller. (The original, without analogs.)

Not very different from a SNES controller, except with 2 extra shoulder buttons. I only really play older 2D games so analogs don't matter.

XBone controller.

Works out of the box on a Win10 PC with no additional adapters or trickery required

I was considering changing to that for exactly the same reason. But the single problem is that it only has 2 shoulder buttons. Do you know any PC-friendly 4 buttons option? Having an additional pair is a big deal to me.

Thanks and nice no damage playthroughs. BTW would you be so kind as add the links to the patches so anybody knows where to get them?  :)

Sure, added. :)

Thanks Zynk, excellent job as usual! :) I also made some playthroughs:


By the way, I'm curious about something and have a question for you.

If you plan to ever make Roll-chan 7 someday, how would you do that intro part where Auto gives Megaman the wrong helmet? Since Roll wears no hat/helmet, how would you get around to that? :P

So if I'm understanding this right, the dumps that most people know about like No-Intro (I guess for Example Mega Man), and other forms all have some kind of missing or broken code like that Spiderman game?

Just because one is bad, it doesn't automatically mean everything else is. As for my own experience, I've played a fair number of GoodSNES ROMs both on emulator and real hardware (through sd2snes) and didn't notice anything wrong with them. But then again, I only bothered with "[!]" variants of the ROMs.

No Intro is better because they filter out all the trash found on Goodsets, but it doesn't mean they're always guaranteed to be perfect, either.

Because the GoodSNES set has multiple errors, and some of its "verified" games had their checksums "fixed" maliciously rather than redumped. And No-Intro just trusted them blindly. No one can ever be truly sure if these ROM dumps are legitimate, and byuu knows this, which is why he goes through all the trouble. Spiderman & Venom: Maximum Carnage had sprite corruption, for example.

Is No Intro really the best thing we have available at this time, or are there any other options I'm unaware of?

And that's why sometimes it's better to not jump to conclusions. Good things come to those who wait.

Awesome news! This is one of the titles I'm most interested in. Also, great to know an expert like Eien ni Hen is the translator. ^^

I look forward to the day we will see both RS2 and RS3 fully translated to English. Good luck!

It's possible. It just takes hours and hours of practice. I watch people on Twitch practice arcade games to 1CC them all the time.

Sure thing. I can 1CC some arcade games that are on the easier side and I'm more familiar with, such as Ghouls'n Ghosts or Deathsmiles. But I'd rather invest this time into playing different things. More enjoyable than dedicating so many hours to something that was clearly made to be a coin muncher.

The hardest one? Tough question. But I'd say The Combatribes (arcade) is among them. It's also by Technos. Yes, the same creators of Double Dragon and River City Ransom.

It's also a beat 'em up. There are 6 levels total, and you start the game with 150 hit points. Thing is, you carry on that HP through the ENTIRE game. There are no means to regenerate it, and clearing a level doesn't heal you either - you begin the next one with the same amount you had after finishing the last. Enemies are pretty aggressive and it's really hard to avoid getting countered when you're hitting them, and nearly impossible against bosses. Plus, on the last level you have to beat ALL previous bosses in a boss rush. You only have 500 seconds to do that, and they have quite a bit of HP - making it also a battle against time. Heck, the final boss at the end is brutal enough...

So yeah, It's a harsh game. Even for arcade standards. There's a video of someone beating it on YouTube, but they save-state'd their way through (the final level was cleared with only 11 seconds remaining, btw). I don't think it's humanly possible to beat this with 1 coin legit.

I have heard Wizardry 5 is very unforgiving and very hard.  Any general hints to starting the game?  Is it bearable if you find some maps online?

It's been ages since I last played it so I remember almost nothing. But there's a character creation and coordinate guide over Gamefaqs, if anything.

Other than that, a lot of save states should help making things bearable.

Nice to see we'll be able to play Wizardry V in an uncensored way. Thanks a lot! ;D

And then high school. Oh boy. It was a mortal sin to talk about video games.

Hahahaha. One of the reasons I didn't talk about it with anyone.

I should have made it more clear. By "glorified" or "cool" I was trying to mean the gamers who play competitively, get plenty of money and make a living out of it. Not just some random basement dweller who plays games. Hence why I cited S.Korea, since a lot of pros are from there.

But either way, I guess the discussion is going too off-topic at this point.

And look at video games now. It has become serious business and as mainstream as it can get. Any average joe plays them. "Gamer culture" is mostly glorified and even seen as something cool, especially in places like South Korea. Little do they know how things were back in the day.

And you're right. Brazil had plenty of this whole "culture of honor" as well, so gaming was seen as something childish. Whether it was the Master System or SNES or whatever else.

Someone mentioned that snes was always niche. This is true. In it's height, if you were into snes you were an uncool dork and not something you were encouraged to be proud of.

My childhood in a nutshell. :P

I agree with you there, it was hard to find people that shared the same hobby. But even so, I still had my circle of friends that were also into it. It was fun doing multiplayer with them. Good times.

I never heard of a translation that made a game harder. But it seems like almost all the level hacks I've tried make the game much harder than the original. If the graphics are good I forgive it sometimes but I hate if I have to spam savestates too much to beat it.

I think they meant the one that gave you the most trouble to hack, not the most difficult you played.

I've not played all games published by Working Designs yet, but I did play Popful Mail all the way to the end, then did the same to the Japanese version, and I can safely say the difficulty of the former is retarded. It's true that the JP version is too easy, but I'd still rather play it over the localized version any day of the week.

Thank you for all your contributions, Supper. You worked hard and deserve a trophy for all your efforts. :)

SSM2 and the two Arethas are being worked on by Dynamic Designs, right? But who is in charge of Popful Mail?

I can say for certain that I'm still interested in SNES translations. It's the console I grew up with, so it holds a special place in my heart. Here are some of the games I'm looking forward to:

-Aretha 2
-Sansara Naga 2
-La Wares
-Princess Minerva
-Super Shell Monsters 2
-Popful Mail
-Romancing SaGa 2
-Romancing SaGa 3

So yeah, there are still quite a bit of good titles left. Hoping they will all see the light of the day in the future. :)
