Personally, while I've never downright hated what I've played of any of the Sonic games I've tried, I never really jumped on the fan bandwagon either.

They built a character for speed, then either designed levels where you have to take it slow, or they throw in random "traps" that punish the player for using said speed. So while I don't mind the character and the idea behind the games, the level designs generally left me feeling a bit "meh".

FF5 might make more sense in that regard, given the Beastmaster job's Catch/Control abilities..?

Maybe I'm misremembering, but wasn't it found that the Famicom Mini/NES Classics releases for GBA were basically running PocketNES?  :huh:

nVidia is doing something similar with the Shield devices with the GeForce Now streaming for PC games.

Personally, I just stream my own PC library to the TV on the Shield console for those time's I'd rather be in the living room with a supported PC game. Aside from the nVidia in-home streaming, you have the Moonlight app which is based on the nVidia one, and the Steam Link device streaming (never messed with one of these, so no clue how it fares).

As for PSNow, wasn't this basically built on tech from when they bought out Gakai (or something like that), which I think was similar to OnLive?

For reference, I don't own a Retron or Game Freak (no need to, between emulation and still owning my original system since the 80s).

Just thinking from an average consumer's perspective, who isn't really "in the know" on the Retron history and such.

Just on paper, the Retron sounds like the much better deal.

I mean, really... Aside from the asthetics/nostalgia of the original NES design, what reason does anyone really have to get this thing over a Retron if they want an emulator in a box?

Meh.. just feels like too little, too late.

Not to mention too limited, if there's no way to expand the library.

Seems cool from a quick skimming (no time to watch the full 1/2 hour video at the moment).

Although, the thread title seems maybe a little misleading. It sounds like it's saying this is the first time copy protection has been cracked on the Saturn in 22 years... yet, I have a board in mine from the late 90s that allows backups to run.  :P

I don't know if it's the problem or not, but I don't think .NET 4.x is fully backwards compatible with all prior .NET runtime versions. For instance, I know you can't install .NET 1.1 on a Server 2008 or newer without hacks/workarounds, and we needed this to support a customer with an old web app when they updated their server from a 2003 one.

Just, typically, that's where I see the side-by-side errors crop up (.NET), so might be a starting point. /shrug

Don't know anything about this editor, but the "side-by-side configuration" error makes me think it may have something to do with a missing/bad .NET installation.

That's the way I've always used it.. (to mark everything read)? :huh:

I mean, it's not labeled "Mark Some Messages As Read" after all.  :laugh:

As to the original issue, I did get to witness the "New" images disappear. Hit recent unread, opened a few threads in a new tab. I finished with these and closed the tabs. When it returned to the recent unread list tab I had open, a second or 2 after that tab was displayed, I saw most (but not all) of the "New" icons disappear.... ODD! :huh:  This was a few days ago, so I don't know if recent changes may have resolved this yet... but, it does seem more and more like maybe a Chrome issue (at least in my case)..?!

In playing around on my phone  (with Chrome) the last time I noticed this, the links were still there in the spot where the New icon would normally be displayed, just the actual image of the icon seemed to not be loading for some reason.

I've noticed this on a couple of occasions as well, but it's not consistent (also on Chrome), so it's hard to pinpoint any specific thing.

In my case, I'd hit "Show unread posts since last visit" and would see everything as normal, but occasionally when jumping pages in the list, the "New" icon would disappear... which then defeats the purpose in a way, since then you can't use that icon to jump to the first unread post. :-\

Also, some update I installed (can't figure out what) made my old Photoshop not work. It just crashes my computer if I try to run it. i use GIMP now.

Also, after that event, I've been looking up what these "IMPORTANT UPDATES" are for. One was for compatibility with Azerbaijani currency, or some such thing. Yeah, that sounds important. (rolls eyes).

And that update was apparently buggy and caused problems on some programs. Thanks MS.

It could be that update. We ran into some issues with some customers where the updated font included in that update caused issues with Acrobat. Being that they are both Adobe products... could potentially be related to the same issue of the updated font.

Just was reminded of Cracker - Low. Bought the album based on that song and was greatly disappointed. At least from what I've heard, Low is pretty much their only good song.

From the newer fountains with the flavors: Cherry Vanilla Dr. Pepper. :beer:

Not sure if they even sell that bottled / canned? I've never seen it around here anyway... just the cherry.

It is kind of odd when you consider that Dr. Pepper is supposed to be a spiced cherry drink in the first place (that there is a "Cherry" version... but, whatever).

From my understanding of this feature from early days of the site: You won't see the thread bump since you are the one editing it, but others will.

I think my latest purchases were:

Adventures of Mana [Android] - Much more faithful remake of Final Fantasy Adventure than Sword of Mana ever was. I liked Sword of Mana well enough, I guess, but they definitely took a lot of liberties with the original material.

No Man's Sky [PS4] - Pre-ordered this a little while back. Figures that a delay would bring out the lecherous underbelly of the internet with death threats and what not. People are $@%$#^ stupid.

While I like most of their material, Awake is still probably my favorite album by them. :beer:

There's two songs that come to mind, but the two band's names escape me at the moment:

1: Cult of Personality

2: Dontcha Want Me baby?

1. Living Colour: can't say I'm familiar with any of their other material.

2. The Human League: also Human was very popular.
