People might buy it and just put a Raspberry Pi in the case.

I'm glad I don't have this weird self punishing nostalgia thing. lol

Dump the rom and compare the md5 checksum with that of the later version?  Unless the cart has a differing design for each revision there isn't a way to tell.

Interesting ... it reminds me of those plug-n-play consoles ... which I think this is. Basically you are buying an NES with the ability to play only 30 games … which is lame. Notice how there is a seam for the side-loader cover … it's just for show.

You're really buying a emulator made to look like an NES.

ROM Hacking Discussion / Re: Is MSU1 chip emulation even possible?

Retroarch's BSNES core is v94 and Higan is currently at v100. I've read that in between these version Byuu changed the set up necessary to run MSU1 patched games so Retroarch will most likely require a differing setup compared to Higan. I would head over to and check around and ask how to get it working for Retroarch.

Looks a lot better. I'm surprised they let you use those screenshots though.

Wow... So exciting... ::)

Oh yeah, I had forgotten to mention that they restored the original soundtrack too (and only the soundtrack; a lot of sounds still use the GBA version's).  Another difference is that Cyan can charge while you input other actions.  If it's worth it or not is up to personal preference, but I'd still take PC over mobile for the modability and lack of "always online" DRM in that case.

EDIT: I've read that it uses the PS1 sound quality instead of SNES.  Not sure if this is an issue or not, but same source also lied about the Celes beating scene on mobile so take it with a grain of salt.

The steam version definitely has away better sound than the PSX version.

Plenty of NES emulators can use custom palettes. Like Nestopia.

I know this is besides the point but why are you using Nesticle?

Gaming Discussion / Re: What game is this screenshot of?

It is Forge of Empires... The same woman appears in this picture.

I didn't even know there was a 3DS version of Final Fantasy 1 until just now, although I'm guessing it's just a port of the version already available on PSP, iOS, and Steam.

FF1 and 2 are curiously missing from Steam.

That's great news. A very smart fix! By the way is it for your mGBA emulator or did you help the hacker by inserting your fix into his game patch?

For the emulator.

I'm probably doing something wrong, but the last patch when I tried to patch it with Lunar Patch.
It caused a big mess. I'm assuming it didn't patch right or I had the wrong type of Rom.  :banghead:

No problems here.

Gaming Discussion / Re: Deus Ex Human Revolution: Directors Cut
« on: July 07, 2016, 09:58:13 pm »
Director's Cut on PC is just a port of the Wii U version anyway. Not sure what you expect to be different graphics/bug wise.

It's the GBA release in every way but graphics and UI anyhow.

And way better sound.

Fair enough; didn't know it's that strict and can't even be discussed. Let's leave it at that then. I'll try to figure it out. Good luck to Rodimus in his future endeavors, will be keeping an eye on your stuff!

It's not that it can't even be discussed... You linked directly to a download to a ROM. lol

Hiding behind the 'muh opinion' shield doesn't do much when you present your opinion filled with such irrational hatred and disgust.

Your reviews are completely blown out of proportion. "They provide all the wrong touches, and destroy the dialog in all ways possible." when in reality it doesn't change the dialogue in any meaningful way and would have to cross check most of the changes with the games original script to even be able to tell when and where something was changed.

"It’s grotesque, it’s unnecessary, and it’s vapid." They are shallow hacks to be sure, but changing gender specific pronouns to non specific pronouns is hardly grotesque.

You might want to not attack other people with your opinion if you don't want to be attacked with theirs.

You guys are gonna get this thread locked. The mods don't like these discussions.

Last I heard Improvement was majorly bugged due to some more recent updates. You want Relocalization from those picks.
Both have new translations.  If you're wanting something more akin to the original you want Ted Woolsey Uncensored.

The translation in Improvement is optional... Or so it says.
