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
https://docs.google.com/file/d/0BzuPqd7AupkwT3VuMWd4U0o2cmM/edit?usp=sharing
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.

Its that one nagging thing that keeps you from enjoying an otherwise great game

Mario 64 ds: having to press a button to run, I wish I could set it so I hate to hold the button to walk not hold it to run, would it be hard to make a par code to fix this?

Chip and Dale: Getting flowers makes a TERRIBLE noise, we need a romhack that removes or replaces this.

10
I finally got a hacker so now I just need this one cutscene done. Any takers?

Ok I have a 3ds, a r4i card and a rom of megaman zx (I own the real game but I like having all my games on one cart). There be an issue tho, I am missing out on boss fights! What I do to not do such?

12
Ok these are on sale http://www.amazon.com/Sega-Genesis-Collection-GE-PC/dp/B004GGO1JA/ref=sr_1_1?s=videogames&ie=UTF8&qid=1353381952&sr=1-1&keywords=SEGA+Genesis+Classics are they just emulations with filters or are they like the metal slug psn and xbla ports that actually spiff up the games?

Gaming Discussion / Ports/collections that add new features?
« on: June 17, 2012, 07:01:07 am »
Ok let me explain what I am talking about here.
Port that doesn't add new features
Golden axe on steam which is just emulated.

Port that adds new features
Metal Slug 2 on psn adds a nice scaling filter which for the purist can be turned off, lots of tweak options and an auto overclock to remove the lag in the game. All this can be done in an emulator but its a hassle to set up and research.

Sonic CD for psn or live arcade
Basically an engine remake

I see all these ports on consoles or steam and want to know, which is worth buying even if you have an emulator/original copy? Please enlighten me.

Gaming Discussion / Dolphin questions
« on: May 23, 2012, 08:07:35 am »
Ok so I am going to try out dolphin and I wanted to know if it was like PJ 64 and maybe it could have texture packs etc? I want to make windwaker a bit more cleaned up.

http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/shin-megami-tensei/id501271388?mt=8

So wonder if we will get an english release or maybe its easier to translate this version than the psx or gba version. Thoughts?

OK this is both a translation project and a graphical upgrade for this wonderful fan remake.
Here is the game
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JuBjgele1Do

I guess I should explain for those who don't know
Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu is the Kunio Kun arena fighter that is a great party game, the original suffered from having only 2 Kunio Kun characters (Kunio and Riki who the fan translated rom named it for) and some slow down.
This remake fixes that and throws almost every Kunio character from bit parts to characters that shouldn't even be fighting! also its fan modable! It also has about 100 moves/passive skills and allows 8 person combat in either teams of 2 or free for all.

I spent hours combing through the Japanese fan mod files to pick and choose the upgraded graphics files that keep true to the spirit of the game while upgrading it with things like hair color (The original nes games had only black hair for everyone) and better font, I even took the sprites from a female conversion mod and made some of the female Nekketsu characters that take part in the fighting! After that I went about getting the menus translated.
After getting a screen shot translation guide made up I found out something, the cutscenes are simple .txt files and so are the character names, I then went to work on getting these translated.
What you see here is the work I have so far and sadly for now is all I will have for a while because my translators got scared off by the about 300 lines of text left to do.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nlFQtkPySO0&list=UU3bXG9gHHZ2wI1V9LR8_y9g&index=1&feature=plcp
Note the typos and poor grammar have been fixed to the best of my ability since this video.

With this project I need help in two ways
One is a translator for the cutscene dialog, there is very little dialog compared to a commercial release but its still a good amount, good way to get your feet wet. I can localize and rewrite it so I really only need a literal translation.
Second I need a sprite artist to convert a 16 bit kunio sprite into a chibi 8 bit one. I could do this myself but I am damn burnt out and still have 8 more hair sets to make the "Been hit" sprites for and I really don't feel like making another from scratch.

And this isn't too important but I could use someone to figure out how the scripting engine works so I can change the delay between each line of dialog. for example I have one line on the screen for 5 to 10 seconds but another zips by in 3.
Am I allowed to post my beta build? Its not a patch but then again its a fan game. anyway contact me if you want to help and know that sooner or later I will find a translator so those who can't help but really want this to get finished fret not!

Ok I am working on translating what I can easily translate Of this great fan game Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu. Here is the opening cutscene.
This is okay to post here if its not a rom hack but a pc translation right?

Gaming Discussion / Best patch for authentic bs zelda?
« on: November 30, 2011, 08:59:15 pm »
Whats the best patch for bs zelda for an authentic play experience? I know about the lite patch etc but I see from this site http://bszelda.zeldalegends.net/bs1files.shtml that there is work beyond the initial release. So which ones do I want?
Also is there a patch that makes the map the original zelda? Like turn it into a remake? Thanks for any help you can give!

Ok I've got a treat. I bought the River City ransom all stars dodge ball game for pc from miracle kidz and it came with an omake disc with a bunch of great stuff. It is mostly for the dodge ball game but some things would be interesting for anyone.
http://www.mediafire.com/?a0orz4l5bzqaycg

First of all, there's all kinds of omake teams for the dodge ball game, I would love to get these teams translated sometime (The rest of the stuff for the dodge ball game is in engrish if you update it, online omake download included) only interesting if you've got the game (I would release it here but I think its against the rules, are doujin game downloads allowed? They are technically official games now because million and mkidz joined together and released it for wii) note the teams are in .DBCH files which even if you rename them in windows don't show up english in game.

Second there are three ips patches, The big reason why I posted this thread.
one for downtown nekketsu (I babel fished the readme and it says its a beta patch) samurai special (Same) and downtown nekketsu ex debug (I read elsewhere that it is a parody ban patch)

Third arranged mixes of the dodge ball and RCR music (It was said its the original compositions before making it chip tunes but not sure where I read that so take it with a grain of salt).

I thought I would share these because they are part of history, if you are interested in translating the teams on the disc and unengrishing the other teams just pm me and I will send the dodge ball disc. The game came out in 2k7 only in japan through amazon and a few other sites.

Second: I found 2 games from the Japanese Kunio community that are very interesting.

First: is a remake of the samurai special nes game that is quite good http://www.mediafire.com/?95von9hsqxufsjv
From what I've read all the text in the game seems to be in .txt files (I saw a kid on youtube insert his own story line and that's what he said) so it wouldn't be hard to translate AFAIK but again I haven't poked around in the files. It is also insanely moddable because someone made it into a river city ransom ex fan game which I've also include.
To set it up extract Jidaigeki0977 then put the bgm files in their respective folders. May have issues on win7
To install the ex mod do the above then copy the ex version over the main install

Second: is a remake of Nekketsu Kakutou Densetsu aka Riki an Kunio as it was known over here for a while http://www.mediafire.com/?c57ddkh55mdtnlo

This one is also insanely modable but mostly in moves/characters, sadly its text is harder to deal with. There is an english patched version here http://razor--guardian.webs.com/kakutoudensetsu.htm but it is of an older version and the people just used the Crash N the boys names.
The game also has an expansion called the battle edition http://www.geocities.jp/nekketsukouha920kun/KD_Battle_Edition.html but I am not sure if it is just a mod that makes it more insane or more fun.
There is a semi active mod community for this game http://nkdc.forum-motion.net/ but sadly it is small and mostly made up of original characters which usually only have appeal to those who make said characters. There are mods for the American T-shirt & Jeans look and such tho and I also saw a video of ex sprites but have yet to find the mods.

The original site for KD is offline but the new one is here http://www.geocities.jp/kuniokundoesu/ Reason I post the downloads up there is because not only is this site in Japanese but the download links work sporadically. I can't tell you how hard it was to track down this sucker.
http://www.geocities.jp/nekketsukouha920kun/ is a fan site of all things Kunio (Also sadly in Japanese). Its where most people in America get their stuff and he also has a youtube account to show off this stuff.

Gaming Discussion / Tamamy ps3 controller woes (No I don't want motion joy)
« on: September 24, 2011, 04:24:25 am »
Ok I am having an issue that seems to be exclusive to me.
Ok first of all I have 2 ps3 controllers and the Tamamy driver. Tamamy works great, for one of them. The other one just times out after trying to install for a while and when I unplug it from the usb port it turns on my ps3. Any ideas?
