Gaming Discussion / Infinity is up on Kickstarter
« on: August 20, 2021, 10:05:03 am »
I almost never do crowdfunding stuff, but this is one to notice.  Whether you pledge or not though this is going to be one game to play! https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/incube8games/infinity-a-game-boy-color-tactical-rpg-back-after-20-years

Most of the stretch goals and goodies are taken (they raised 100k on day one), but since incube8 hasn't sold a ROM file yet in their store this may be the only time to get one.  Homebrews selling you a ROM file for your use is common, but these publishers doing it is kinda rare.

Gaming Discussion / Switch OLED version.
« on: July 06, 2021, 11:17:36 am »
I guess this is what all that Switch Pro talk was about. https://www.gematsu.com/2021/07/nintendo-switch-oled-model-announced-launches-october-8

Gaming Discussion / Magical Drop 2 on Switch Online
« on: May 21, 2021, 11:53:30 pm »
Saw this was coming May 26th.  Anyone know ahead of time whether this will be untranslated? Could this be the same bit of Aeon Genesis's work that was on a certain Data East multicart by Retro-Bit?

Are we looking at the first fan translation hack ever seen officially on a Nintendo console?

First game is a SHMUP which is admittedly a bit of a gamble with our humble handhelds, but the second is an actually finished Infinity by a tream comprised of both original team members and new people.

Unlike Spacebot it doesn't appear that they sell ROM files for the Everdrive, but this upcomming version of Infinity looks like it's definitely one to own any way you can.

Gaming Discussion / Race Drivin' SNES SA-1 Hack
« on: February 21, 2021, 10:17:33 pm »
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i9_4mwd7cYg&feature=emb_title

Yep, it's real.  30FPS smooth Race Drivin', and apparently from the video discription the SuperFX chip can even cooperate with the SA-1?  I really haven't heard of that one before.

Gaming Discussion / Members of Team Xecuter have been arrested.
« on: October 02, 2020, 06:22:23 pm »
Here's a pretty good overview: https://youtu.be/0nSfnyGPqqM

And the aricle in question: https://www.justice.gov/opa/pr/two-members-notorious-videogame-piracy-group-team-xecuter-custody

Not much to do with ROMhacking and more with console modding, but Nintendo's really playing some hardball here.

Gaming Discussion / Ganbare Goemon 4 translation patch
« on: August 25, 2020, 04:19:01 pm »
Yep, now all of the SNES Ganbare Goemon games are translated!

It suddenly poofed out of the translation list for some reason, so here's the other link.  It's been updated to v3 anyway: https://twitter.com/DDSTranslation/status/1295370426693058562

Also Get Going! Ebisumaru - The Mechanical Maze - Mystery of the Missing Goemon!! https://twitter.com/DDSTranslation/status/1295370804113350659

EDIT: Also also, looks like the first game got a retranslation: https://twitter.com/DDSTranslation/status/1295369726672150528

Gaming Discussion / Pac-Man CE NES is actually a romhack.
« on: July 04, 2020, 01:13:58 pm »
https://arstechnica.com/gaming/2020/07/we-traced-namcos-new-pac-man-demake-to-its-source-a-2008-fan-romhack/

Yep, a hack that Namco and M2 had no part in.  There's no denying that this rendition is amazing, but I hope Coke774 got maybe a payment at least for using their work?

ROM Hacking Discussion / Shin Pokemon Red and Blue
« on: May 27, 2020, 10:31:29 am »
This isn't my work.  I couldn't help but notice that people are still hungering for what this project provides however, so I thought I'd bring up what is apparently the original games' best kept secret: a bugfixed game with better trainer AI, on-demand rematches, postgame content, bike/rod shortcuts, and other small things.

https://www.pokecommunity.com/showthread.php?t=427398

There's a light version of this without the added content, for use as the foundation of new projects.  Next update coming up appears to be Yellow's color mode (which interestingly, uses the SGB code).

Gaming Discussion / How many event Pokemon could be used in Crystal?
« on: August 23, 2019, 12:39:44 pm »
I'm gearing up for a project of sorts, and I'm wondering if anyone had a complete list of Gen 1/2 event Pokemon (preferably those with new moves, both useful and not).  I have the Stadium 1/2 and Gotta Catch 'Em All events, is that about it outside of Mew/Celebi?

Gaming Discussion / HD Mode 7 is on bsnes v108!
« on: July 28, 2019, 07:34:42 pm »
https://byuu.org/?bsnes_v108

This function has been in beta for a while, but now it's official.  Along with the de-facto GB/GBC emulator in accuracy for Super Game Boy.

Want to see HD Mode 7 in action before trying it out?  There's been a few youtube videos about it, but here's some Mario Kart: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gENSHj7p3cM

Gaming Discussion / RetroArch comes to Steam.
« on: July 14, 2019, 05:36:09 pm »
https://www.libretro.com/index.php/retroarch-coming-to-steam-this-month-july-30/

I don't really use it anymore, but I thought Steam had a rule against console emulators being on the store?  This is unexpected and kinda odd, but it will make just about every core they have gain huge popularity.  Either way it's an auto-updater.

Wonder if Square-Enix will have anything to say about this, since they specifically forbid talk of emulation on at least some of their products' steam discussion forums (or at least, I remember that about FFVII).

Gaming Discussion / Square-Enix is doubling down on re-releases.
« on: June 14, 2019, 11:53:21 am »
https://www.gameinformer.com/e3-2019/2019/06/12/square-enix-committed-to-making-its-complete-library-available-digitally

They're going to be working on making every game in their library available, and down the line, and it looks like they're eventually going into their own store platform (I hope they don't do streaming exclusive things, yuck).

I guess this means Trials of Mana isn't the first we'll see of newly official translated SNES games.  Hopefully they release the others like Mana Collection.  :o

Gaming Discussion / A new Thracia 776 translation!
« on: June 02, 2019, 07:55:48 pm »
This is called Project Exile, no relation to Project Naga: https://forums.serenesforest.net/index.php?/topic/85081-fe5-project-exile-thracia-776-script-and-menu-translation-fully-complete-and-released/

A whole new script, can't beat that!  Make sure to read the stuff about emulators, you can't just throw this into BSNES and expect it to work.

Gaming Discussion / Antstream, don't fund it.
« on: April 10, 2019, 10:56:46 am »
This pile is on kickstarter and is somehow making thousands of dollars already.  It's a streaming service emulator that states it uses none of what it calls "fiddly" emulation.  While most of us know better, is it really that bad?

Well, it appears that they're in the business of just having the open source do it, with no programmer.  Great foundation for a new frontier! https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/bbaevm/antstream_retro_gaming_reborn_kickstarter/

At best it'll fail quickly and take everyone's money with it.  At worst we're looking at a trend.

Gaming Discussion / Reggie retires.

https://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20190221005804/en/

His body is ready for the beach!  Meanwhile, Bowser takes over his castle.  Can Reggie still save NOA?

Maybe even hex editors?  I'm going to post a reddit link here, because there's no news in english about the whole thing.  It has reports linked in Japanese: https://www.reddit.com/r/emulation/comments/abk551/save_game_editors_and_console_modding_now_illegal/

Gaming Discussion / The PS1 Classic
« on: November 11, 2018, 11:34:28 pm »
I'm sure a lot of us have heard the hooplah over this thing.  Not because of the Classic's potential this time around though, it's because it's been found to be running PCSX ReARMed.  This is kind of a strange move to me, I mean it's a pretty solid one for it's purpose when it comes to things like RetroPie, but Sony has had better than ReARMed around from as far back as the PS2 era (though Bettle/Mednafen is reportedly better than Sony's at this point).  Maybe none of their emulation methods run on the cheaper specs they're using? :o

That explains why Legend of Dragoon didn't make it in as a filler title, I guess?  I know ReARMed has some minor visual bugs with LoD.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Suikoden II Bugfixes
« on: August 31, 2018, 10:00:00 pm »
This isn't mine, but it seems to have been kept under the radar over the years so I figure some would like to know.  This is a collection of bugfixes for Suikoden II, addressing most of the pressing problems.  Essentially, just about everything except for a retranslation is in here for most versions of the game (though some fixes are US only).  Yes, including ports of the fixes originally made to the PAL versions.

https://github.com/pyriell/gs2-bugfixes

I remember the same person made something similar for the first Suikoden that fixed only a few bugs (escape talismans, bribe, and a couple of the rune spells doing nothing I think), and it was dedicated to the 1.0 version of the US disc.  If anyone should happen to know where on the internet it ended up, let me know!

EDIT: I about forgot, the patcher is pretty much one of a kind.  The .bat file is how you start it up, but it runs perfectly fine under Wine.  Also, don't be afraid if it's taking a long time with one operation because the music patching takes a load of time.

Gaming Discussion / Snes.party!
« on: August 25, 2018, 10:34:35 pm »
https://snes.party

Boy, this is pretty interesting.  Basically you open Chrome to this website, and you can stream any SNES game in a room.  The controls are also streamed, and anyone can join in with the same controls.  Best way I can describe this is that it's like the online SNES version of the GBA or DS's single cart multiplayer function.  Only weakness is that there may or may not be some lag, but given how you're playing that's just expected.

There's an NES version too.  Anyone tried this?
