  1. Wait, 360 games are going up in price? I filled my collection for on average less than a fiver per game. Even something sought after, like Katamarii, cost only £8 in CEX, and I considered that a bit high. Anyone here JTAG their box? I still want a means of unlocking all my rare XBLIG demos.
  2. EDIT: Turns out it was delivered to my neighbour and they never put a red card through my door. Numpties at Royal Mail. Carry on. Nothing to see here. - For those with an Everdrive though, not only can you play Sega Master System games, but also Game Gear games too! https://www.smspower.org/Hacks/GameGearToMasterSystem
  3. Oh wow, I didn't realise this. Shows I was never a big SMS collector. Mainly I want to play Ninja Gaiden, since the SMS version is the best. I'm just pleased there's now an option (two options!) for playing CD games without an optical drive.
  4. @Nick_L Nice pics of your ED. I've just ordered myself a Mega Everdrive PRO yesterday! So you're just using pre-existing dumps of MCD games? I ripped all of mine years ago, for use NeoGenesis on my original Xbox, but to save space set them up as ISO, MP3, CUE lots. I've read MEDP doesn't support alt audio formats, so am thinking... Do I now need to take all my folders, reburn them onto a CDRW, then re-rip them again as pure BIN/CUE? Any other thoughts on the MEDP? I'll be using mine with a modded MD. I take it that SMS games use the start button on the
  5. Members of RLLMUK, I propose an intervention for Thor, regarding his Deus Ex difficulties. (And by intervention I mean kidnapping, and then re-education Soviet style with intravenous drugs and strobing VR hypnosis goggles.) Not sure what to say... The sniper rifle always took out enemies with headshots. And for non-lethal stealth takedowns that electric stun rod did it one go. I once did almost an entire game using that - on the organic enemies anyway. I never liked Human Revolution because there was a ridiculous bit where an entire city was split into two v
  6. Like many here, Deus Ex was a defining moment in games for me. My parents had bought our first family computer, and got the best possible, so when it released a couple years later I was ready. A friend at school spent 3 days convincing me to buy it (I was all about consoles back then), and after I did, it changed how I viewed games. I've spent the years since trying to find other games that recreate that same qualia of sensation. I've replayed it a few times over the years and for me it's aged superbly. Each time I replay I try something radically different and am surprised at how
  7. Sure, no worries. I mean, you could just buy the DVD release, drop the English translation folder in the root directory and call it a day (that bit is quite easy), but the fan-mods I installed do two things: 1) Add a bunch of cut content or fresh content, including drugs, backpacks, and new crafting recipes. Gives it a bit more depth. 2) The EXP mod, which corrects a bug and allows you to select whether EXP is divided by the party, or given to the character that performed an action. I hate it when a weak character whittles down an enemy, and then your strong
  8. @Cyhwuhx Any chance you could rename the thread to: "The Fall: The Last Days of Gaia (PC, 2004; CRPG)" or something similar to make it easier to search? Anyway, I spent the last week installing, patching, tweaking, and modding this thing. At first I thought it was simpler than everyone said, then I discovered it really is as challenging as some vids make out. I've clocked 4 in-game hours, having spent around... 20 hour setting it up? I won't bore you with the tiny details. But basically I was juggling posting on a German forum and a Russian forum, using Google Tran
  9. So did anyone in this ancient thread actually get and play THE FALL – LAST DAYS OF GAIA ? I watched the vid below and ordered a copy of Reloaded off ebay. It arrives any day now. I am very much looking forward to getting into it. I love me some eurojank! Question: does anyone have any of the mods that were made for this game? The official website died years ago and now triggers trojan warnings on my anti-virus. I specifically want the mod which restores the blood, which was removed from the German version, which I ordered.
  10. A good theory. But the patch author has said they tweaked every enemy, item, and weapon manually. Which is sort of noticeable in a couple cases. I just think they were more interested in making it balls hard, intentionally, than rebalancing it. Ideally I'd like a patch that adjust everything rather than scaling it all up. This is very true. It's something I noticed with fighting games. The AI is either a walkover because you can do something like a leg sweep over and over, or it's a vertical wall of pain trying to win. There's not the flexibility you find in human
  11. I take back everything I said about the Hard Patch for this. It was great fun through the normal castle, which I completed. It forced you to use all your tactics, all your items, all your spells. I would regularly make use of Dark Metamorphoses to heal myself (cast it, then attack a blood spewing enemy for the blood to heal you). In the normal game you will never, ever need it. The patch showed the game to have arobust system of mechanics. Then I get to the inverted castle and the patch author does what pretty much every rebalance patch creator does: make the game ludic
  12. For anyone thinking it's too easy, the Hard Mode patch is surprisingly very well done. I patched the PS1 game and run it on PSIO on original hardware. They've rebalanced absolutely everything, and it now gives you a reason to make use of all the tat and junk items you find. Sadly it nixxed the Shield Sword magic combo (which was totally broken from the start), but the rest is pretty decent. Which surprises me, because rebalance patches by fans are almost always universally crap.
  13. Find someone who has the demo and they can email it to you. It might not be the full game, but you can at least enjoy that sweet, sweet title screen, and the 5 minutes allowed for demo play. Also, well done on making your own version!
  14. I thought bald Uncle Phil died? ANYWAY! Did a test via USB key between some Xboxes today, and it turns out there is zero security on demos. I was able to transfer Ginga Saikutsudan to a different machine, and even play it via USB stick. Clearly Microsoft wanted people to share demos. Besides, you need to be logged in to XBLA to load it. I booted it while logged in as one of my alternate accounts, so you do not need to be logged in as my original account which downloaded it! So! My offer is this: if anyone wants the free demo of
  15. I know. It's my video, which I recorded and uploaded specifically because this game has almost zero footprint online, despite being a genre defying and truly excellent experience. I genuinely feel sad know it will never be played by anyone. Sadly it was delisted. When I went to buy it, months or even years before the 2017 closure, it was no longer available. I saved the download to a USB key. I don't know if it's possible to put this on other Xbox systems, other than those with my account, but maybe it can still be played as a demo?
