  1. Can someone explain: I don't remember master systems using cards, they had carts? Or are cards only on jap machines or something?
  2. Checked yesterday, tricks don't as far as I can tell, however I think they do in blue storm, haven't tried!
  3. I didn't know this, will try later
  4. Yes there just seems to be three difficulties and that's it (on wave race 64) Another thing, I reckon the most annoying thing about blue storm is the presentation, the music is annoying and although the graphics are better it just seems messy somehow. Also I don't know what's wrong with the controls but somehow they just don't feel right compared to wave race 64. Is there anything as good as wave race? Anyone tried aqua Moto?
  5. Wait. What!?! Doing tricks gives a speed boost !? I didn't know this !!
  6. I left avalanche back to the shop. Interestingly the main programmer on it is talking bout doing a real sequel: He's the same English guy who worked for Nintendo Japan and made the Mario face in mario 64, the one you can push and pull around when it starts up. Edit: turns out I now nothing about new games, this is now a vr game called carve, looks good but I can't be arsed with vr
  7. Wave race 64 is probably one of my fav games of all time, I've completed on expert a few times. Sad, I could do with some more tracks. The depth of the control system is only matched by 1080.
  8. I'm sorta replying this, never completed it first time, but I loved it. Not so sure now. Though I think I only like arcade racers these days. I tried the first Zelda recently (nes), Jesus Christ the difficulty is insane.
  9. It emulates really well on redream. But playing with fresh eyes it's not a great game. It's also not 60fps but there is a chest code that strips out scenary and ups the fps. Compared to sega rally Revo or whatever it's called on Xbox or PS3 it's just a bit crap. Also it's pretty easy to emulate sega rally one arcade on a pc. Plays well
  10. Ah, I'm not on Mac so not for me!
  11. So I was thinking of buying this on gog. Is a Xbox 360 pad a good enough joystick? They have special edition, is that different to collector's edition?
  12. Is it worth moving from retro arch to open emu? The start guides for retro arch are shit but once you've down loaded some cores and told it to scan for ROMs it really is great. I have a decent pc under my TV with retro arch, I now no longer bother digging out real hardware and faffing with ossc. I've started buying adapters for different joy pads. Other than that I use dolphin for GameCube games, it's pretty amazing, f zero at 1080p looks great. I've got an Xbox 360 emu that I can't recall the name of, runs the Goldeneye leak perfectly. Redream for dreamcast games is amazing. Free but pay five bucks for high Res upgrade, well worth it. Though for some reason I can't get it to scan for new games now. My usb Saturn pad arrived last night, realistically are there any decent saturn emulators worth trying? Or decent cores in retro arch?
  13. That looks professional level, late in nes life pro level, and it's a one man band as far as Google tells me. That's really impressive. No time time to play it but I can look at the videos!
  14. You shouldn't need to be messing with DLL files. It's all configurable from its GUI. Use its online updater todownload the cores (aka emulators) you want. Then scan your ROMs folder and it creates all the play lists for you. That's it. Took me a while to figure out it had to be done in that order though!
  15. There's an advert in the mag for "ultimate retro PC gamer collection" I've searched on magazinesdirect.com but can't find it. Anyone know what's going on?
  16. Edges 6 out of ten one page review of grand theft auto 3. They later sort of claimed it was a misprint. Anyway, totally dismissive a revolutionary game.
  17. On the sega Saturn retro bit pads on Amazon, are they really worth it for fighting games in emulators etc? Only 15 quid or so was thinking they'd be the right thing for megadrive games and mame. Though I see the megadrive ones too, take it there's no reason to buy those over the Saturn ones?
  18. Just saw this, it looks a lot more fun that nearly every side scroller shooter I've seen.
  19. Ive got an ossc and don't really bother with real hardware anymore. Retro arch , screen filters and run ahead latency reduction are great. I think it can actually produce less latency than a real snes. I once did a real comparison switching between retro arch nes emu and real NTSC NES, I preferred the emulator. That said I'll never sell my real hardware
  20. Thing is though, this guy was running a subscription service that included switch games I think. I'm not a games programmer, but if I found out someone was freeloading off my work id be pretty unhappy even if only a tiny percentage would have bought the product legit. I'm fine with the likes of Nintendo protecting their current commercially available work. Mass piracy helped destroy the Dreamcast (at least I've read several places saying that and it sounded convincing) so I understand why companies go after pirates. Another way of looking at it is that companies wouldnt bother chasing pirates if it didn't make commercial sense , which makes think it's probably not a waste of time.
  21. Can ask where you got that TV cabinet from?
  22. These look great thanks! I just saw this after ordering a mayflash snes adapter on Amazon. Might cancel it.
  23. Totally random question. Does anyone know how much Famicom games cost in Japan back in the day? I had a nes, but games were prohibitively expensive. 40 quid was a huge sum. Always wondered if the Japanese and Americans got them cheaper.
