This could land Soulja Boy in hot water where the law is concerned.
He could eat that 12 million, and chinese emulation consoles will circulate evermore even if the law has anything to say about it.

It'll be fun to see Nintendo react to it though.

Hopefully someone who's bought it won't need to buy a second time.  If we could get it to boot directly to ePSXe all the better, because it's UI is more useful in general.

The only games that won't work with the android version that I've thrown at it are the Pro Pinball games, due to some obscure graphic issue it requires the OpenGL plugin (it's a separate download, but not the best implimentation of it).  Oh, and you might want to stick with FXAA and use the scanline settings for that.  For some reason both of the CRT shaders are really slow on my device, otherwise I can run the highest settings no problem.

Now this is who Nintendo should be suing for 12 million dollars.

And now I'm going to say I've heard everything after the headline "Nintendo sues Soulja Boy for games console."

How can you say that when it's exactly the same open-source emulator that everyone has seen?

Even if you want to limit yourself to commercially-released stuff, Bleem sets a pretty low bar.
If I'm remembering correctly ReARMed is the bottom of the barrel these days on at least android, and It's the only one on 3DS or Pi.  But it's still nowhere as bad as Bleem!

Apparently with something as simple as plugging in the right keyboard, you can also turn on the emulator's settings which include the normal stuff like scanlines (so why aren't they there in the first place?)

Since there's talk about wanting to hack in the rest of the games, there's a lot of info about what works and what doesn't on a Raspberry Pi on the 'net.  I'm pretty sure it's going to be mostly on the spot for the PS1 Classic, given the specs (though there were reports of slowdown in MGS on a Pi).

Next actual computer I get, I'm switching back to Windows.  The decision to not take up Vulkan was the last bullet hole in the coffin for me, and they've been making a lot of poor decisions as of late which I've had to endure.

Looks like I'm not alone on that, at least.

That's a good question.  Is any of the data for these options still present in FFII?  Otherwise, I'd imagine these would be pretty tough to remake!

Regardless, I do miss cursor memory.

Speaking of III, there's one thing that bugged me on the mobile releases.  In the new translations, III uses more common english even though I and II have about the same vibe.

Have you ever thought of shifting III to something matching I and II more, or is this going to be a straight script port (which is also perfectly nice, I'm just curious).

And for some reason, 45% of the games will be PAL versions even on the American version because... Don't Know. :P
That is weird.  There has to be a reason for that because no one would just use 50hz for all the world in a professional product.  Last I checked, ReARMed also has some PAL specific issues such as copy protection.  This is really doing things the hard way.

11
I was wondering why it was rejected, if a similar pack for the US version was accepted?
Sounds like it was a technicality or something was filled out wrong, from what I can see.  Wonder what would happen if someone else submitted?

12
Let's be honest, there's no set rules for anything about using stuff when it comes to hacking.  Everyone is different about it and the big question tends to be about what we actually can do if someone uses something we made without our permission.  Most you'll find are okay with it if you at least ask and you should always do that or follow the rules when you can (licenses etc.), but either way I've found that it usually falls into your own judgement if you can't contact the person behind the work.  There are exceptions though.

13
I just got into this game, nice to see the translation updated!

First question that comes to mind here, did the game just not have an ending?  If it did, is one just better translated than the other or is it better looking?

Personal Projects / Re: Chrono Trigger Bugfix and Uncensoring Patch
« on: November 19, 2018, 08:19:17 pm »
Maybe I'm missing something, because every time I patch the Clean ROM first with the bugfix and then the canoe patch, I get a popup saying "This patch is not intended for this ROM." The same thing goes for patching with the canoe fix first. If there is a step I am missing, can someone please explain it to me?
Canoe is standalone, and it would be impossible to roll it into the other patches.  The BPS is working as intended, by telling you not to do that because you're not patching on a clean ROM.  If you want to play on Canoe, use the Canoe patch only.

The only time where applying two patches is needed is for Liberties extended, and that's only for the Liberties patches.  And I'm definitely thinking of making those two standalone at some point too, so everything only requires one patch in general.

Parasite Eve.
Now that's interesting!  ReARMed has a fix to make PE work (also the Vandal Hearts games), but it's a separated option in the emulator due to it also screwing up other games.

Either the games are set up similar to Canoe where every single one has different settings for the emu or the fix is always on.  The latter would hinder hacking the console to work with more games, unless Sony got it to work without screwing up other games of course.  I also remember hearing reports of MGS having slowdown in the emulator, but that was RetroPie's compatibility reporting so I wouldn't know if they fixed it for that game or not either.

Looks good to me!

Cecil:Your Majesty,how
 are the Dark Crystals?

is missing a space after the ,
A lot of games of the SNES with large scripts include a space in the punctuation, because almost always they're used before a space.

It's just a way to maximize the characters used for text space.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Walmart Gaming PCs. WTF?
« on: November 16, 2018, 02:42:03 pm »
I took a look as I'll have to deal with one of these at some point.  I'm not crazy about the laptop as it's based on the chinese TongFang model that's been making rounds (might want to look for this on Amazon or elsewhere, as it may even be cheaper and there are a few sellers of this around), and while the specs are really nice the airflow is definitely lacking.

In my experience walmart quality is something that I'd take as a definite minus either way.  I smell planned obsolescence going on in some fashion, but I could just be paranoid from dealing with such over time.

Managed to grab a screenshot:


Yeah, looking at it closer I definitely think the word "ships" is the anomaly here.

19
Aaaah, I see then.  Project II's line makes more sense.  My quote came straight from Namingway, so maybe a comma should be added at least?

20
I have a strange bug, and I'm not sure what has caused it.  My MagmaKey is gone and I can't go any further in the game.

What happened was last night I saved outside Agart right before putting it in the well, and I had turned off the game during the first talk with King Giott.  When I loaded up my save today, poof!

Is this a known thing with FFIV in general?  SNES9x perhaps?  Anyone have a way around this?  This has never happened to me before.


EDIT: Disregard, I did a dumb thing.  Fixed-o.

EDIT 2: One thing though, King Giott refers to airships oddly.  "the ships your mech-flies" is kinda left field.  Is there a typing error (are the soldiers the mech-flies?  Is he referring to Cid as short for mechanic, but the hyphen shouldn't be there?) in there or is this a reference?
