But that name is kind of ridiculous  ;D

Do enemies in the FFTAs level-up with you, or was that just in random (non-story) battles?

Wasn't the GameCube version of Namida canceled entirely (even in Japan, only the PS2 version got out)?

I think he's doing a MegaMan 1 hack.
The bosses always reappear in the Wily (or whoever) stages.

I lurk on RHDN pretty much daily!
(I should go find out later. Even though I'd probably end up watching from the beginning because that episode was over a year ago. :) )

I've done plenty of yelling at the 3/DS. **** you Pokemon RNG! :laugh:

Although wasn't one of Microsoft's more brilliant ideas for the Xbone to give you a timeout if it caught you cussing at the game. ::)
From what I heard if it ever was real it was dead as the anti-reselling/sharing red tape but OH PLEASE say that would've been a parental control option (or only active during online games) at best.
... of course that would probably have resulted in lost CoD sales. ;D

I remember playing Super Princess Peach on the bus. When I got to the submarine transformation (where you have to blow into the mic to shoot torpedoes to destroy blocks), I quit and decided to wait until I got home for that. (on the original DS, you couldn't even be discrete about that. You had to move the mic up to your face and blow.)

Sure I'm not the only one who can say they repeatedly struggled to finish even the first screen of the game. That mini-boss is way too tough for a first opponent. Bad difficulty balance there, Capcom. :P

I've used imgBurn and CloneCD myself with no problem.
Have you checked the drive is properly working? (does it work in any other programs? Does Windows itself detect the drive?) I know a couple times Windows stopped detecting my drive so I had to open my PC and recheck the cables.

Street Fighter 2010 and M.C Kids both for the NES. People skip mc kids because they think it will be a terrible game while it's actually very good. And they stop playing street fighter 2010 because it doesn't look like street fighter but it's also a very good game. Capcom should have kept it like in japan and not associate the game with the street fighter franchise.
It sounds like Street Fighter wasn't very popular until Street Fighter II came along (a year after SF2010) anyways, so I'm not sure how much of an effect that had.

I'm guessing they let anything be released on that system.
It had no lockout so they couldn't stop it if they wanted to.
Either Atari didn't think of it or they didn't think it was necessary.
Don't you know the story of Activision? Atari thought that by making the system they automatically held the sole legal right to make games for it. When Activision started making games for the 2600, Atari thought they could just sue Activision for making games without permission, and it was ruled they didn't need to ask.

I would not pay $200-300 for a genuine new game, let alone a crappy bootlegged one! (no offense to Lugia, I'm sure your work on the patch is great)
Or $100. Or anywhere near that. Sorry other guy.

I think you did it in the wrong order:
Add header, apply patch, then remove header

Do multi-disc games typically let you save at the end of a disc, so at worse you could just swap discs and restart the console?
Or is it just the few games I've played?

(the only one I've heard of that didn't was D2 for Dreamcast, which at least one site proclaimed "least successfully pirated game" :D )

It's weird because it's actually compressed.

I wonder if Cloud was the winner of the Smash Bros. fan-voted fighter poll.

Gaming Discussion / "pSX emulator" no music
« on: November 14, 2015, 04:10:29 pm »
Tried to play "In the Hunt" using an ISO I ripped myself, using CloneCD, from a real CD.
Game plays, but no music (I assume it's CD audio).
That was using the built-in ISO handler. I tried Daemon Tools Lite, psx didn't like the virtual CD drive.
I tried using the actual CD, game still runs without music.

Checked the game on PS3, and even ePSXe plays with music from the actual CD, so I am I missing something?

No, the ear-biting was at least five years later. ('96 maybe?)
It was something else he did but I don't remember.

does it really matter when she dies anyways
Like all of us at some point. Our names must not be important. :P

I.S.T. might have a type I can not think of but abandonware, which is not much of a legal term in the US (and almost non existent elsewhere) but attempting to be one, is more when the copyright holder to a work is not clear by virtue of bankruptcy, sale of assets, company breakups and such like. Various groups then lobbied to have these works turned over either to the public domain or have their copyright status altered such that they are covered by far more permissive laws. This document has phrases like "Video games in the form of computer programs embodied in physical or downloaded formats that have been lawfully acquired as complete games" and makes no ruling on abandonware that I can see, and moreover has "provide access to an external computer server necessary to facilitate an authentication process to enable local gameplay" so I guess even bypassing code wheels/manual lookups (the methods of choice for most things that would classify as abandonware) could be suspect under this.

AFAIK, it's not a legal term. It's more justification of out-of-print game piracy as "we seriously don't think the copyright owners really care about the game anymore to keep selling it officially" aka abandoned. I stopped really paying attention went it was mostly floppy disk games which could be somewhat justified by the fragility of the disks (even before the drives themselves were dropped as standard-installed PC hardware and then put out of production entirely).
