Site Talk / Re: Can the US title of a game be updated
« on: April 26, 2017, 08:01:01 pm »
I was just looking at this one site I'm always on and they have gotten smart instead of having a US Title that is from Japan they list just the Japanese Title for games that weren't released in the US so I guess that kind of solves my problem.

I'm ambidextrous, am one the 1 percent I originally was Left Handed but because I was taught to use my right hand instead or rather in my day "Forced" that is what happened. I'm the most accident prone person I know and comes from being originally left handed though I write with my right hand I can do everything else with my left hand too, sometimes I even switch out my PC Mouse, to use it on the left side, and I type mostly with my left hand.

That sounds correct, I hadn't thought of them not actually being released on said systems. Thanks for clearing that up.

I do think if DW4 would been release for the Super Nintendo instead a late release near the end of the Nintendo's life span, then it might have been called Chapters of the Chosen for SNES "had it came out", But since it never did I guess there isn't much we can do about it.

Without looking it up, I'm going to take a wild guess there's naked ladies revealed as you remove tiles.
If they were a large background image, it likely would not be possible with the NES tile limitations.

I know Puzznic had dirty girl pictures as backgrounds originally in the Japanese arcade version, but for the western arcade version and console ports it was censored out (though it looks like the X68000 included it as an option).

That may be the case, I don't know, as I haven't played the game long enough to find out if you even get rewarded in the Famicom version. The cartridge I have is kind of slow loading on my Game Fillip "Famicom Clone" would likely have to play it in a emulator instead.

Supposedly the Arcade game rewarded players for successfully clearing certain stages by presenting them with drawings of partially clothed women.
Isn't that the same thing. lol

No, the NES and Famicom versions of Super Mario Bros have the exact same PRG- and CHR-ROMs inside. Just not the same board.

They actually didn't hack the game, it was just refashioned for release, I wouldn't have realized it, Thanks.

I bought the Famicom "NES" game Jongbou which is like a Arkanoid game with Mahjong Tiles also known as Mahjong Block, but anyway I found out that originally it came out on the Arcade as an Adult Only Game, however the Adult Content was removed from the later Famicom release.

So if anyone could find a way to restore the Adult Content to the Famicom version that would be cool..

I remember Nintendo DMCA'd the game, which is why they're not selling it. But releasing it for free means Nintendo could still sue them. (even if suing someone for a 2600 game these days ranks right there with some of the other poor decisions they've made.)

That's Nintendo for sure, I don't get how Nintendo of America can claim they own the game "Super Mario Bros", when it belongs to Nintendo of Japan, they just borrowed it but never returned it and on top that they Hacked it to play on their Nintendo Entertainment System.

I've been debating this in my head, all the time I see the US Titles of games on other websites but they are Japanese names can't we do something about that. As a example I'll use the Snes game Dragon Quest V - Tenkuu no Hanayome should it not be called Dragon Warrior - Hand of The Heavenly Bride, or at least Dragon Quest - Hand of The Heavenly Bride. I know the DS version is slightly different but it is still the same game. My question is should that be the Universal US Title of said game and should that apply to others as well like Dragon Warrior IV for Nes should it not be called Dragon Warrior IV - Chapters of the Chosen.

This isn't just concerning Dragon Warrior games I'm certain there are many many others as well. Can there not be a true accepted US Title for certain games.. I probably opened a can worms, Insert's foot..  :banghead:

I have really became more interested in Atari Emulation now and especially since I found this game called Princess Rescue for the 2600, I've known that someone made a 2600 version of Super Mario Bros for the Nes, but I never knew someone had made a game of it for the Atari 2600..

It's also available to download for free, cause it is out of production.
I'm not  sure I can link to it, as it is a rom file.
A search should find it try "Princess Rescue - Atari 2600 Homebrew"

I use either a GameCube controller or the Classic controller. Both work well.
Emulation on Android has been a thing since 2012. The first tablet with built-in controls was the Archos GamePad. I still have mine and it still does well. It does PSP emulation nicely. There have been many others, though trying to get a hold of one now is becoming difficult. But emu on Android with bluetooth or usb controllers is easy.

Okay I give that a shot, sounds like my Wii Mote will probably work too. I like just bought my first Smart Phone "Android" this year 2017. So I don't know much about them yet other then it's like using a computer with less security but windows is just as vulnerable to attacks and may be worse than a Phone. lol   

That's because these games are Homebrew games, not available commercially during the original NES lifespan.
The game was made by the user Khan in 2014-2015 I believe. It was made from scratch using the 6505 assembly.

So yeah, even though apparently all of the commercial NES roms have been dumped there are still plenty homebrew roms yet to be dumped. All of Khan;s games seem to only be available through his site.

I was playing some Nes Multicarts and happened to remember that sometimes they call Space Invaders "Space ET" so before I bought such a game I would make sure I could return it, there is no way to verify it's a real game or a very common rip off that comes on pirate game cartridges. Unless you know some one who owns it and knows it's legit.. Just thought I would warn people to be careful.

Fair enough. But then again, running Atari 2600 games on a soft-modded Wii or Android is a fun thing.

I hadn't thought of that, but, yes that probably is a good temporary solution I do have a modded Wii with the Homebrew channel installed, I had mostly used it to test game hacks, and some translations cause I haven't afforded an ever drive.

I hadn't tried Atari emulation on it, but have FCEUGX, SNES9x, etc..  it's been awhile since I last used it, it's in my closet.

Does the Nuncuck work as a joystick, I only have the Wii Mote, I could order one there cheap, the reason I've wanted an actual system is Atari games are not the same with out a real Joystick but the Nes actually has real Joysticks I'm not talking about the little Stick thing on a control pad like comes on GameCube "N-64 ish" controllers.

You could just emulate the 2600 on an Android tablet with a bluetooth controller, or an Android TV box with a USB controller. Buy your games legitimately, but emulate them. Much easier and most 2600 emulators are 100% accurate.

You can actually buy the games online I didn't know that I do have a Bluetooth controller for my Android phone but haven't got much use out of it. Is definitely something to consider..  :thumbsup:

I was referring to a Converter Device that you plug into the Nes not changing a Rom Image to run on the Nes, but the Title was probably Misleading.

I may have found the solution to my problem as I came across the Rambo TV Game, that is an Atari 2600 with built in games and a Cartridge Slot it even shows Pac-Man as a built in game, But I don't really know can't find much info on it right now and my internet is very sluggish currently so can't do much. I did find a couple of the Rambo TV Games on Ebay for like 70 dollars seems far as a 2600 would cost about that for a decent one with some games.

Rambo TV Game

As far as undumped NES games go I just bought this Dendy Cartridge from Albania 1991 4in1 Pac-Mania, Pac-Land, Pac-Man, Super Pac-Man in one cart.  The Super Pac-Man is likely just a hack of Pac-Man but I searched everywhere and tried finding a dump of it but no luck, I suspect that it may be one the Unknown Multi-carts with Pac-Mania but I can't verify it I have seen 4 different ones of those but they are not just unknown they are not emulated currently.   

My internet is in such bad shape that I can barely do anything can't even upload a image, if it was working better I would say more.

Oh I actually wasn't aware of that.
Nice to know.

However, it seems like the only possible way to get the ROM now is to buy the 4-in-1 package from Khan's site here:

It seems like the actual standalone E.T. ROM is out of stock since a long time ago.
So it's either buying the 4-in-1 or nothing, I'm not sure if the guy actually sells the standalone ROM though, as it is not available anywhere else.

Yep, I just noticed that you could Buy it as a 4in1 didn't know you could get such a game I keep hearing that the Last NES game has already been dumped, but I keep coming across strange stuff all the time.

The front-loader NES DID have AV (composite) output, on the side of the console.
It was REMOVED from the later (top-loader) model (because it was a cheap re-release and so they cut corners, and in 1993, it was almost certainly deemed not important enough to keep. It was about five or so years before DVD took off and that is probably what forced people in America to even notice composite.)
(though its Famicom counterpart, the AV Famicom did the opposite. Because the original (1983) Famicom only supported RF and apparently in Japan there WAS demand for the upgrade.)

It seems there IS an AV version of the top-loader NES but it was EXTREMELY rare and the few people who got one said they got it back in the day by calling Nintendo and complaining about the lack of AV. If I had to make a guess, maybe those were originally used as demo models (since you know, they want to make it look better in the store).

That sounds right, I'd heard similar things back in the day.
I got to thinking that my Nes did have both RF and then AV on the side "Only owned a Front Loader", but when we got it out the box there was no AV cable as my Nintendo came with only a RF Adapter. Nobody at the time knew what the AV was for.

Also I just remembered that the original SNES used RF as well for many years though it came with a AV cable that plugged into the bottom of the Console with a weird SNES plug the Super Nintendo originally did not have normal AV Hook Ups "Mine Didn't Have Them" and I recall for many years nobody I knew, had any clue what that cable was for we never knew what Audio Video was or that you could use it to play games. The Cable for SNES was include originally for the future supposed add on now known as the Play Station that had AV hook ups to connect the SNES as a pass through to the TV. Back then I did not know the PS1 original model connected to the SNES and many Consumer Grade TV's still didn't have AV the SNES cable just set in the Box for a good part of it's life span with kids unsure of what it was for "Not everone Knew what it was for" and because Nintendo Dumped the Play Station early on in development, That is how stupid they are at Nintendo still to modern day.

Just the idea that the Secret of Mana was going come out on CD, Blows my mind..

Is one the Reason's Clone systems although they use AV they are not as good as the original SNES or NES because both had better sound and picture quality by not using only AV of course that was with the CRT TV which is a bit different then Modern Ones.

But my everlasting dream of playing E.T. on my NES is not fulfilled yet :(


In October 2013 the Internet Archive provided a browser-playable version via MESS.[78]

In Q4 2014, KHAN Games ported the original Atari game to the Nintendo Entertainment System (NES). Some changes were made, including providing some more detailed instructions on how to play. The original Atari version was often cited as having very little instruction on gameplay.[79] Later the game went "out of stock" on the store.[80]

So it at some point it was ported to the NES, Whether it's available I don't know.

It's not possible for the Atari 2600, because it has no AV input on the console. But in principle you could do something on the Atari 5200, 7800, Intellivision, or ColecoVision that operates like the Expansion Module #1 for ColecoVision, but plays NES games or whatever else instead:

The original Nintendo Entertainment System didn't have AV did it I thought it only had a single plug Modular Video Jack and that is why you had to have an RF adapter, most TV's except the latest Models "that most consumers didn't have yet" didn't have AV either at that time in 1985. Is Also why on clone systems that use NES with AV games sound like carp and the Graphics are not as sharp as if you had the original With RF adapter,  I think AV was a later add on for the NES. Maybe I'm wrong.

I think the 2600 had video that hooked direct into the TV, but isn't that similar to Modular Video "I think that is what it's called" it's just a Single Jack like the ones that go in old word processor Monitors. The RF adapter wasn't added til the 5200, and the Nes also used an RF Adapter. The difference with the 5200 is it had two Wires that came out the System to a Single Video Jack that connected into Atari's RF Adapter, the Nes is opposite Nintendo's RF Adapter connected to a single Video Jack on the NES.

I don't know if it is Modular Video but the Nes I remember used a Single Video Jack for RF Video that wasn't Audio Video. Despite my early statements I think the NES Had Both.     

From what I heard, that is ONLY the version 2 Flashback (which I've heard as such goes for a premium these days). Supposedly that was the only one written on clone 2600 hardware. The other versions (now they're up to 7?) were Fami-clone (with repogrammed games) or something else not directly compatible with actual Atari cartridges.

Okay, Thank you I'll remember that when I start looking for one.

Oddly enough it'd be easier to go in the other direction, since consoles like the Atari 5200 & 7800, Intellivision, and ColecoVision offered A/V inputs on the cart slot or an expansion port. The Atari 2600 doesn't have one, but it's how all those machines were able to tap the built-in AV/RF for their expansion modules.

For whatever reason we stopped seeing video inputs with later consoles, though I think the PC Engine has one on the expansion slot, and the Game Gear has a proprietary video input format. Not sure about the Jaguar -- don't think so, but Atari had AV inputs on the 7800 expansion slot, so it seemed to be a trend with them.

It's funny how people often assume Atari 2600 emulation is trivial, when it's actually one of the toughest consoles (especially early consoles) to emulate accurately. And Atari consoles could push a ridiculously high onscreen color count, something the NES could never mimic.

So it might be easier to make a Nes Adapter for the Atari. That sounds like the general census as for some other stuff I've read. Mostly I'm becoming more interested in some older systems, however of late I've took more of an interest in the Vic20 back when I owned a Commodore 64 and I saw them I thought it was a system that came after the C-64 not the other way around. Was back before the Internet.

I may just have to save some money to get all three Atari Systems and maybe a Flashback. I've heard you can add a Cartridge Port, one guy at Atari was modifying them for a price but not anymore.

You can get Atari Systems Cheaper now days than when I owned mine many years ago but I'm just affording to go to college for the first time at 36, so am mostly busy trying to expand my brain not circuit boards.

Sounds about right I just think it's because Atari bombed in Japan, I don't know why U.S. Companies don't make Clone Systems it is perfectly legal to make a Clone system that plays original hardware and you can even Manufacture your own games for it, is legal Nintendo and all gaming company's only have copyrights to their Games, and that is it. Even in North America. I'd buy a Flashback if it was like the new Sega Flashback that has a cartridge port.

The Atari 2600 had clones that were sold in North America the Sears System 2 is one was an clone of the Atari 2600.

Copyright Law it's a pdf

It is because most Atari games have already been ported to other systems so there is less interest.
That is what they say that it's complicated it's just lack of interest and that it wasn't popular in Japan.
Because if it had been the Japanese would already built it. They can build you as a clone.

Also it's only because I'm poor..

I been putting some thought into this I saw people talking about it on other forums is there anyone working on such a thing.

I read some where that the 2600 is in the 6502 family, and Atari made a Convertor for the 5200 that plays 2600 carts.
So I was thinking it would be more particle if there was a 5200 Convertor so then you could possible play both systems on a NES console. Why I would like to have one is legitimate I once owned a 5200 with about 50 games the problem was the system stopped working, as is the case of many 5200s they can break down, and are very expensive to replace unlike the 2600.

I'm no programmer nor could I build one myself "Am not that smart", so it would be left to someone else, I just have lots of crazy idea's but I really would like to be able to play Atari Cartridges with out having to own one that doesn't even work well. I don't want a Flashback because Atari doesn't even hold license for many of their own Cartridge games and those ones are not include like Pac-Man.  At least not on the last one I looked at.

is my 2 cents on an NES Atari Convertor, will one ever exist or not.

Atari CX-55 2600 Cartridge Adapter for the Atari 5200 Supersystem

There is this 4in1 console
Super Genintari 4-in-1 Console Jams Nintendo, SEGA, and Atari

Probably an Atari clone system would be better that like had all three cartridge systems 2600, 5200, 7800 in one.

I just recently bought a console again after having lost like 2000 dollars worth of games back in 2014 when my house burnt,  but That is another story. I just got a Retron 3, and decided to start collecting games again. Despite thinking I would never take it up again.. 

Super High Impact
Super High Impact Japan
Vegas Stakes
Super Game Boy

For Genesis I got
2 copies of Triple Score
Ms. Pac-Man with box
2 Copies of F-22 interceptor one with box and one is just the cart

For Nes
Super Mario Bros/Duck Hunt/World Class Track Meet
Captain Sky Hawk
Famicom Convertor

For Game Boy
Caesars Palace

For Game Boy Color
Men In Black The Series 1
Madden 2000
Power Quest

For Famicom
Hotter Man
F1 Race
Dino Riki
Urban Champion
Flying Dragon The Secret Scroll
Little Ninja Hattori
And a Baseball game, but is not the game Baseball.

I haven't received my famicom carts yet though, but did buy them from a reputable source.
Am still hoping the Retron 3 will play them if not I'll have to get another system that will.

The Legend of Double Moon, it takes about a week of level grinding before you can even get anywhere, IMOP it is the toughest RPG ever made, when you first start you can get killed in ever battle you encounter so you have to pray you survive just to earn experience, and though it seems like a dragon warrior clone on the surface it is no such thing, I don't even think it's related at all, and it should not be called such.
