You realize UT wouldn't exist if it wasn't for Unreal selling well due to its campaign? Nobody bought PC games just for multiplayer in 1998. It was too unreliable.

Doom multiplayer was frequently played on the single player maps, and they weren't designed with multiplayer in mind until later patches.

Isn't it just playing with the SNES video-chip details? I think on old hardware like that it's so separated from the other components it's easy to just "bump the internal resolution", at most you get some visual glitches but the CPU won't crash.

>>16371193

>caring about cycle-accuracy

The shota-enthusiast faggot byuu can fuck off, he deliberately held off implementing autosave while other emulators had it working. Not writing the saveram to disk after it's changed is No$GBA level stupid, while ZSNES, Snes9x, VBA, Desmume, Dolphin, and several others did so for ages.

I'm still waiting for his magical ideas to make the cycle-accuracy meme work with N64 emulation.

If only. Finland gave us Linus Torvalds. bsnes, while I respect it as an emulator, is from some lefty American cunt.

Actually. Some SNES games use SRAM like RAM. This is why RetroArch also defaults to disabling that behaviour because otherwise you're killing SSDs.

Yeah, a faggot's excuse, no surprises there.

IIRC it was a friend of byuu losing saves because of a laptop battery that convinced him to implement it. And it's some faggy "dump every X seconds" implementation. Is it now somehow devoid of the SSD killing curse?


7cf78e  No.16374638

One of the problem with auto-writing sram is that if someone loads an old save state it will overwrite their regular saves. Don't remember which you saved by last time you quit? Oops now you are fucked.


7f7c10  No.16374651

>>16374638

No that's normal behaviour because the SRAM is part of the system's state.

Also all emulators will write out saves on quitting if they don't do it periodically, so the issue there is if it crashes you lose saves there too. I had one insidious thought too about whether it would be possible to have it write to disk mid-saving but then if you crashed you'd have a corrupt save file.

My favorite is Randy with Colonial Marines. It was like some showelware mod or something. He have no problem to release Borderland 2 with 6 gorillion guns and 4 playable characters and give you crap like Aliens or Duke Nukem.

And look and Memelands 3. It looks exactly same as Memelands 2. Pre-sequels at least tried to give us new enemies and gameplay. What i hate moust is how NPCs defend Memelands 3 even if it looks shit from xbox360. It should look like RAGE 2. Instead they still use their ugly style. It was good excuse for fixing their ugly Bordelands alpha. And i hate how they 150 hours long game with every line trying to be joke but fail all the time.

So Goys Workshop are bringing their new game to the Switch, and apparently brought it to Steam last month. You play it digitally but there is a real world version and you can scan the cards which have a wierd qr style border to unlock them digitally along with booster back tokens you can share and scan and every 5 gets an ingame booster. Theres hundreds of archived booster cards to get digital booster packs and it has cross play with pc, tablet and mobile.

Is this going to be the none pozzed alternative to magic or hearthstone?

there are just as many outright failed pay2play games if not more, in the end f2p is just a business model up to the dev/publisher to decide how retarded he wants to be. if anything f2p helps those games more having at least some activity instead of bombing right out of the game when no one wants to pay 20+ bucks on a dead multiplayer game (meanwhile shit like atlas probably made it's money back already)

>Tribes was particularly painful to lose

I really don't get why people are surprised what happened with tribes, that shit was obvious from a mile away. niche game with high skill ceiling run by company with shit track record, ofc it will be mishandled and milked hard if it doesn't bring in the dosh they expect, and tribes being tribes, how could it? tribes only chance was piggybacking on a popular game as mod, but no one does mods anymore in this timeline.

As a card game, it's sorta complicated, but not overly so. It's like Magic if it forced itself to stay within the playmat and not involve a hundred token creatures. Each faction is fairly different, which is nice, although I don't really feel like having undead commanders really feels like an army of undead. Their other game, Lightseekers, is much better in terms of strategy possibilities, but it's in a kid-friendly format, so I don't know how successful that one is.

I'd play it, and I've got friends I could play it with. But for a mainline game I want a more traditional JRPG done with a budget, and without the fucking shithouse writing. Something with the pace and style of IV but with modern presentation would be nice.

The example I have in mind is Valdis Story. You visit four villages in the game, three story related and one optional. And in two of those story related ones, you get some sort of hint that things are not going well for the town. Eventually if you are negligent in backtracking to them(or just using them as an interim tram system location), you can end up not knowing about the problem as it arises and the next time you visit them the entire town is abandoned or you find the villagers corpses and the only thing you get is a text box wondering where everyone is, and this music. It has an effect on gameplay too, you can miss out on shops, or have the villages harm you over time because of the frost, or even miss out on the secondary affinity weapons.

So I'm wondering, what are some games where big world changing events are basically missable side-quests that you could ignore or not even be aware of their existence?

95ccbe  No.16373385

Xenoblade I guess? There's a whole mechanic about rebuilding a village. It has a unique interface, needs tons of materials, makes the village actually rebuild in game and gives you exclusive shit, but I don't think even seeing the setup of it is mandatory.

I don't know if I would recommend to play it for said sidequest though. When you play Xenoblade, you're here for the main story. There are tons of sidequests but they're very cookie cutter, grindy and unengaging. Which is a bit baffling given how amazing the main story is.

Platformers, Monster Collecting RPGs, Trading Card Games, etc.

What are your favorite (or recommend) games that have collecting mechanics or aspects to them?

Maybe it's my undiagnosed autism, but games where the act of collecting different items, monsters, etc. is itself satisfying and actually rewards you for going out of your way to collect everything makes me feel a sense of completeness that certain other genres don't really give me.

>completing a bestiary of monsters you've fought/caught

>getting unique item for collecting and/or completing all quests in a game

>seeing a "100%" on your save file

>eye candy animations, sprites, etc. i.e. anxiously watching your pokeball to see if you'll capture the pokemon

These things give me a raging hard-on.

Fifth gen gave rise to one of my favorite genres, being 3D platformers. However, 2D ones didn't die. Fifth gen also was a great time for experimental games, just like Third gen was as well, with the NES mainly, but also 8-bit home computers at the time. RPGs, as well. While the popular fourth gen series did go to shit at this time, plenty of new ones were born. Sixth gen then proceeded to kill both, as well as puzzle games that weren't named "Puyo Puyo" and "Tetris" and anything even remotely experimental. and RPGs? Fucking dead, never to recover.

The three main consoles from the Fifth gen are worth owning because they have plenty of damn good games. I cannot say that about a single one of the Sixth gen consoles.

You're misattributing a lot of those things to sixth gen when it was fifth gen that did most of the damage. Sixth gen for the most part only did the killing blow. And while there was a lot of great experimentation in fifth gen, most of the dirty shit from sixth gen on originated in some part from fifth gen. I doubt that narrative focused games would be as popular as they are now if it wasn't for the influence of games like OoT.

You can trace narrative-driven shit to the fourth gen but I know what you mean, and you're not wrong in that regard. My point is, however, that despite the damage done, fifth gen was the last to have a decent supply of good games whereas sixth gen directly killed two of my favorite genres.

Find a kingdom at war and repeatedly ask the king to give you tasks, eventually he'll ask you to become a mercenary and you can participate in big battles as well as raid villages/caravans without losing reputation. This will give you the resources and renown you need to eventually become a lord, ask the king when you have 200+ renown and he'll grant you a fief.

>How do I make money?

If you already have money find the guild master in each city and start a productive enterprise there, usually velvet is the most profitable but costs 10K denars to start up.

If you don't have money but are a mercenary/lord raid caravans and villages from the kingdom you're at war with.

If you don't have money and aren't a mercenary/lord head to the coast near Rivacheg and fight sea raiders, sell all of their equipment. You can make a little more by using blunt weapons if you have prisoner management, sell them to slavers at taverns.

>What are the best units?

Nord Huscarls are the best infantry, Rhodok Sharpshooters are best ranged units, Swadian Knights and Sarranid Mamlukes are the best heavy cavalry, and Khergit Veteran Horse Archers are the best mounted ranged units. Vaegir units are all good but they aren't really the best at anything. Also, they're all more powerful than their wages suggest which means they're a waste in autocalc, so if you're looking to stock up a castle with a bunch of men to deter invaders while you're away just give it a ton of recruits/peasants/etc.

What modules do you use? I'm looking for one that doesn't add a ton of bloat but keeps the variety of native. Floris adds a ton of unnecessary equipment, much of which looks the same, while Viking Conquest/1257AD/Gekokujo have the issue where all the environments anPost too long.

I foolishly bought M&B vanilla years ago so pirated Warband. Its only release version, is that a problem?

I miss multiplayer, that game really died.

Most modules require the most recent version but you're fine if you're playing vanilla.
