Gaming Discussion / Good gaming news sites?
« on: August 30, 2015, 12:32:51 pm »
I use to use Blistered Thumbs because they had silly articles along with good news coverage and since its closure I've been using Siliconera but they are a bit slow on the draw and have a lot of random stupid posts (Like OMG NEPTUNIA MOD FOR LEFT FOR DEAD! Oh wait its been out for a year). Any Suggestions?

Way to wiff it Capcom, seriously at least make it a toggleable thing if you really want to leave it in for accuracy's sake

I mean come on, the Rockman complete works ps1 versions removed slowdown!

I have played many a buggy pc game in my day, Fallout 2, Vampire masquerade, Black & White, but none have had so many crippling bugs! There is the fact the game will crash every few hours and you have to reboot your pc to fix it, or the sound glitching so when you drive the cars in the game it constantly plays the breaking sound effect (Screeching to a stop and starting up again over and over) but none of these stopped me from playing... Until I found out I was suppose to be able to aim my gun up and down! I thought the game just had a majorly crappy aiming system (And I am not the only one) but apparently the aiming is confined to a little box in the middle of the screen so you can't aim high enough to shoot some important stuff! I've been beating my head against a wall trying various fixes for the last 4 hours (One fixed the aim bug but caused my fps to slow to a crawl) and I thought I would see if anyone else has tried and failed to play this here.

Anyone have friends who say these things? That know nothing of how things actually work and think this would be a good idea for a company? About the only company I could see actually doing this would be Konami but even then they can still make money off merchandising and cross promotion.

I was talking about pop culture references being the bane of comedy with my friend and we started talking about in story pop culture references (a pop culture in game that characters reference not real world pop culture) any games like this? closest I can think of is Secret of evermore where the main character keeps referencing B movies he has seen.

Gaming Discussion / Item shop management games
« on: July 19, 2015, 03:54:49 pm »
So been playing recettear and I love it! I also loved the torneko (I think thats how you spell it) chapter in dragon quest 4! Any other games like this out there? I tried that potato weapon shop one but its more like an phone game (aka time waster) than a game you would sit down and play.

Gaming Discussion / Best versions of oft remade games
« on: April 16, 2015, 04:22:22 pm »
This includes hacks and retranslations
Ok first of all I want to ask the big un
Final fantasies, which ones are the best versions content wise?
For example I would really like to know if there is actually a good version of final fantasy 2

I know for a fact  the 3d remake of final fantasy 4 has the best translation and in my opinion the most improvements.

For vanilla final fantasy tactics the IOS port has HD sprites but I rather like the "Kind of" hack that rebalances a few things and fixes some glitches.

Final fantasy 7s pc version has so many mods that if you are willing to put effort into setting it up it would be the best way to play, no idea if 8 has anywhere near as big a mod scene.

Dragon quest has a bunch of remakes and so far the ds and ios versions seem to be the best choices (Except 5 where its do you want 3d graphics or do you want more content).

Gaming Discussion / Thinking about getting into fatal frame games...
« on: April 14, 2015, 10:10:03 am »
I tried fatal frame 1 and it just didn't grab me, it felt a lot like a normal survival horror with bad gun(Camera) controls, is this the kind of series where I should skip 1? Or does it get better as the game goes?

Since we have been talking about ios and android final fantasy games so much I might as well make a topic about the newest one.

holy crap this games good! I would explain more but its free, go get it, I have done all the content currently available and have yet to spend a cent. I have no idea how they expect to make money from this title.

Gaming Discussion / Games with Blue mage style systems?
« on: April 07, 2015, 07:44:14 am »
I was watching someone play Hybrid Heaven and my friend noticed that the gameplay is much like the final fantasys blue mage.
What other games have this style of class/character? (Learn by having a move used on you)

Gaming Discussion / Struggling to enjoy final fantasy type 0
« on: April 02, 2015, 05:12:04 am »
Ok got type 0 and started playing a few days ago. Is it me or is the event viewing system overly complicated and designed for you to have to play through the game multiple times? Freakin hate when they do that for no reason!
I have a few questions that will determine if I keep playing or not and I would really be grateful if anyone whose played the game can answer them

1: do the missions get longer? I know this was made for portable but they are WAY too bitesized right now (I am almost done with chapter 2)

2: I am guessing I can not see every event on every day with the limited free time correct? How do events work? Like I talked to the doctor on day 2 with 2 hours left and he wanted to see me again, am I no longer able to get the next dialog with him because I moved to the next day or does that dialog just show up the next day? How does the game introduce me to his area if it doesn't carry over?

Really my biggest issue is the event system, they should of just let me see it all instead of this "Free time" bullcrap thats just there to get me to play multiple times.

Gaming Discussion / Games like pacman 2?
« on: November 10, 2014, 06:25:05 pm »
I have been thinking long and hard and can not for the life of me think of a game like pacman 2.
An adventure game where you don't control the protagonist but guide him is insanely interesting and fun in my opinion.

Ok I know I am making a lot of "Question" topics but they seems to go over well and give other people as well as me info so uhhh... sorry?

Anyway my question is this.
What is the best way to make playstation 1 games look good on emulators? I use to use epsx plugins but I moved onto retroarch recently and haven't found a solution using this emulator. with my current shader set up xbr it doesn't work too well on 3d games textures. suggestions?

Gaming Discussion / Ds games with online shops like Dragon quest 9
« on: June 29, 2014, 01:41:16 am »
Now that the nintendo network no longer works for these games, is there any way to access these shops via hacking? Not even sure how these things worked so I'm not sure if it would be possible.

So I slotted in Fire Emblem shadow dragon and was amazed at how much I dislike the game.
I hate the fact that when I attack  someone, they get a free hit on me and I hate how if I want to unlock these new "Gaiden" chapters I have to kill off most of my units.
I also hate the fact I have to send units that really shouldn't be on the front lines to talk to enemies to get some characters.

Is it like this in the later games?

ROM Hacking Discussion / doujin game translated! So uhh... Now what?
« on: December 11, 2013, 04:26:34 pm »
This is a weird question because its not quite a romhacking question because almost all hacking is done. The question is what do I do now? I didn't really think this far ahead.
Basically I translated a fan remake of nekketsu kakutou densetsu and now I have no idea how to proceed.
Do I host it myself? Find a site that would host such a thing? Is there a site that deals in doujin fan games of all kinds? The Kunio/river city ransom brand in fan sites is rather dead over in america so I don't really have a chance to find hosting on a fan site.
Any sage advice for a first timer?

Hello, I am currently in the process of translating a Kunio fan game and we have everything we need I just need to shove the dialog in there... Except the hacker says I do no work and he snuck a 2000% speed hack in there without me knowing (I only dealt with the menus in my grunt work so I didn't go in game to check). I need someone to figure out how he did it and revert it to normal or maybe hack his patch. Can someone help a poor project manager out?
The games a fan game and free to anyone so I am allowed to post this I think
Edit two: Replaced with fixed link
If anyone can help I would be so glad, otherwise I a sol.

The patch is in lazpat

Edit: I found the issue with some help, in the .txt file Patch_Misc.txt, I will leave this post tho so maybe people can look in there and find if he changed anything else.
Edit two: replaced the file linked with the fixed version so at least those who took interest can download and have a little fun.

So I was throwing this around with a game dev friend and he suggested that it could be done through picture recognition, just make it watch for the font and translate the words as they come up. Any other ideas? I got the idea from watching beta videos of monster hunter online.

Gaming Discussion / Tool for hacking ps2 game saves?
« on: May 16, 2013, 03:14:01 am »
Hell I was wondering if anyone knew of a tool I can use to hack ps2 save games. I want to play Devil summoner 1 on hardmode without having to go through the game once and boring ol easy. I tried getting a save online but sadly it had everything maxed out and thus made the game boring in a whole different way. Any ideas?

Gaming Discussion / Games that are based on crewing a ship
« on: March 16, 2013, 07:48:30 am »
Are there any games where multiple people take control of different stations on a ship/plane out there? I really like the idea of team work and everyone working together.
