QuoteAre we counting PSone games, or are we stopping in mid-1990's? Because I know a lot of PSone games that would qualify, hahaha.
Quote from: Tomato on April 25, 2016, 10:31:23 PMCan you guys think of any games from the 80s/90s that use the word "crap" (or anything of that level or stronger) in them, besides EarthBound?
Quote(Metroid has a valid password ENGAGE RIDLEY MOTHER F***** but I'm almost positive that is just a coincidental valid "random" password. One whose binary representation happens to match the checksum test. It does nothing useful, as after the game verifies it, it jumps to invalid code (from tracing in an emulator, it seemed to cause the MMC1 PRG setup register to get set incorrectly, breaking PRG bankswaps.) On a real console, it crashes on a black screen. On an emulator you might get different results depending on how it handles invalid opcodes. Like I think FCEUX puts Samus in a glitched version of the Brinstar starting room, but scrolling doesn't work. Nintendo's emulator for GBA seems to handle invalid opcodes by auto-resetting.)
Quote from: KingMike on May 02, 2016, 01:43:55 AMMany, many Japanese-developed games thus needed their password systems changed in some ways for western release.Just a couple examples:Adventures of Lolo 3 (Lolo 2 Japan) for NES replaced the vowels with symbols.Mickey Mouse IV for the Game Boy, shifted vowels out of the password character set, shifting numbers into the end so the same total number of characters was the same in the localizations (The Real Ghostbusters in NA and Garfield Labyrinth in EU, both western versions use the same censored password set).

Quote from: Seihen on December 10, 2016, 06:21:43 AMIt's not QUITE an ice pick. That's inaccurate. It's actually a "haken" (the German name), which is a mountain climbing tool otherwise referred to by its French name, a piton.https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/PitonSo that would probably be a more accurate translation, though few people have any clue what it is...
