Maybe, right now I'm just having trouble with the interface for the page. I'm trying to decide what the background for the table should be. The site will look like something out of the 90s as that's what I go for with my website, but it's very easy to cause eyebleed with that sort of style.

For example, these are some of the tests I've been doing for the background of the table.

Has anyone here ever heard of a game called "Freddy: The Fantastic Frog's Frogging Out"? It was developed by a (presumably) German company named The Merging Minds for the Amiga.

There is very little information online about this game and its developers. From what I could gather, Freddy's gameplay is somewhat similar to Frogger, if the German magazine where I found out about it is anything to go by. As for the company itself, they worked with several publishers and are known to have developed three games. Those being the aforememtioned Freddy: The Fantastic Frog's Frogging Out for the Amiga (currently undumped as far as I know), Solius The Sorcerer for the Amiga (dumped for years), and Dan Burry: Jump & Run for MS-DOS (dumped recently). It's possible that they developed more games, but I could not find much more info beyond what I already wrote.

Does anyone here have any more information on this game or the company that developed it?

Here's the magazine in case anyone wants it: https://archive.org/details/Aktueller_Software_Markt_-_Ausgabe_1991.11/page/n158

On the Genesis there were Tyrants: Fight Through Time and Power Monger, but I'm not sure how much relation those bear to what you're talking about.

I know the PlayStation also got a port of Populous: The Beginning which is similar in some ways but doesn't have farms or mining.

Ever wonder what the best version of a game is, or if the version you are playing is worthwhile compared to other ports? Wonder no more! Starting with 3rd gen consoles, I'm making definitive lists of every official US release for the console, with notation on if that version is the best or if a better version exists elsewhere. I'm sticking to English releases, and versions that can be played in English either officially or through a translation patch. If a superior Japanese only release exists, I note it as such. I typically favor arcade releases, but in some cases the home port is superior.

Because someone on the River City Girls /v/ thread asked me to. Note that this doesn't cover anything past what the rules allow (like River City: Rival Showdown or the upcoming River City Girls). This isn't exactly a crosspost either, since there's a lotta info here not on the original write-up.

>What is Kunio-kun?

A classic but also still on-going series of video games usually about a hot-blooded high school kid known as Kunio beating up a city of thugs single-handedly in a day with his bare fists or a trash can. Its first game, Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun, is said to be the very first beat-em-up after Kung-Fu, and is what later inspired the Double Dragon series.

Occasionally, however, he's the sports leader for everything under the sun, and fully endorses beating the shit out of the enemy team as a valid strategy. So his series is mainly a mix of beat-em-ups, and sports games where you beat them up. There's also a puzzle game and a platform fighter that came out way before Smash Bros. existed. Most people know his games but never really made the connection, since any games that went to the west were all under different names: Renegade, Super Dodge Ball, River City Ransom, Nintendo World Cup, and Crash 'N The Boys: Street Challenge, If you've played any of these games, you've played a Kunio-kun game. If you've played Double Dragon II: The Revenge on Game Boy, you've also played a Kunio-kun game.

This huge list of games will be separated into 3 parts: The beat-em-ups, the sports, and the miscellany. Because of this it might not be in perfect chronological order.

<The Beat-Em-Ups

>Renegade (Nekketsu Kouha Kunio-kun) (NES, Arcade)

The very game that Double Dragon would later be based off of, and is pretty much considered the very first beat-em-up right after Kung-fu. As such it's very primitive, even more so on NES. In the arcade version you just beat goons but in the NES version there's also a bike scene and overall more "modes" than the arcade, and could be considered overall harder. Play if you want to get your history on, but note, it's very primitive and rough around the edges

<The Sports

>Super Dodgeball (Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu) (Arcade, NES, X68000, and at some point PC Engine, Game Boy port later, and eventually a sequel on SNES, then an all-new remake for Neo Geo)

Lead Kunio and his gang to victory by finding a way to beat the life out of everyone with only a dodgeball. The PC Engine version, Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu: PC Bangai Hen, is a special version of the original Dodge Ball which combines the graphics and teams of the arcade version with the emphasis on character-specific statistics and team formation. Features an arcade-style mode and a plot-oriented Quest Mode where Kunio gets his ass beat by a fucking alien and he and his crew have to euthanize them with dodgeballs.

>Nintendo World Cup (Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu: Soccer Hen) (NES, X68000, Game Boy, at some point the PC engine, and ironically enough the Sega Drive)

Play some soccer/football and beat the shit out of the opposing team on the way. There's really not too much to say, it's simple as it gets. I think the PC Engine version (Nekketsu Kōkō Dodgeball Bu: CD Soccer Hen) is the definitive edition but I'm not too sure about that.

>Downtown Nekketsu Kōshinkyoku: Soreyuke Daiundōkai (NES, PC Engine, and later Game Boy)

A game that can be played with up to 4 players. Lead Nekketsu against 3 other rival schools in four different competitions, no holds barred, and beat the shit out of them too.

>Ike Ike! Nekketsu Hockey Bu: Subette Koronde Dairantō (Unreleased Title: Crash 'N The Boys: Ice Challenge) (NES)

One of Kunio's pals has self-esteem issues with his hockey team. Kunio uppercuts the fuck out of him and tells him to be a man, and then takes charge of his own hockey team and goes on a rampage. In short, hockey but you beat the shit out of everything. This was meant to be released in the US as the noted unreleased title, but for some reason never went far.

>Crash 'N The Boys: Street Challenge (Bikkuri Nekketsu Shinkiroku: Harukanaru Kin Medal) (NES, Game Boy)

Kunio's bloodlust grows. Now no longer content with beating the shit out of people with hockey sticks, he resorts to spiking people like they Post too long. Click here to view the full text.

>Nekketsu Kakutō Densetsu (Famicom)

Not a beat-em-up and I'm not exactly sure if it could be counted as a sport game, but it's a 4-player 2-on-2 platform fighter that came way before Smash bros. Also features a custom character that's made based on your date of birth and blood type. I feel like the game's usually a curbstomp until the final boss, but it's great fun. There's tons of obstacles you use to your advantage.

>Kunio no Oden (Super Famicom)

A puzzle game that's sorta like Puyo Puyo? It's hard to explain how to play it since I've also yet to play this, but essentially it's one huge, cutesy eating competition

Since the series is still ongoing, if you wanna give money to them while still playing classic games, you can get Kunio-kun: The World Classics collection for most modern gaming stations including PC (but it's all Japan-only) and be able to play most of the NES/Famicom classics, both original and an updated version that helps reduce lag in some games. I've also got a collection of translated and untranslated Kunio games, and while it doesn't feature everything (would if it could), it at least features most of the classic NES games and a couple SNES games. There's also a 3DS game in the mix but it should be easily noticeable and easy to skip.

https://mega.nz/#F!yFVCGAQZ!nf3AwhHUvOa4nTfFtq6kAA

Other than that, Kunio discussion thread I guess. One of the biggest mysteries, for anyone willing to hunt them down, is the River City Ransom/Downtown Nekketsu Monogatari EX 2007 hacks and seeing if the "stars" thing is real. Again, the Jewtube embed here is an example.

I want to have a chart that covers the origin points for everything vidya related, as well games that defined a genre, such as SFII.

Wizard's Castle might be older than Rogue. It doesn't have the same kind of maze where monsters follow you around, but it's still a randomized dungeon where you fight monsters and grab treasure while seeking the "Orb of Zot".

On that page he posted the 1979 version called Hobbit, but there were later versions for various computers.

Then there's another different game altogether called DND that was written by Daniel M. Lawrence in 1976, and which eventually became sold commercially as Telengard (but there were various mainframe versions floating around before then). Have a look here for some background:

I'd say that's a very subjective label. First X is one thing, First Fighting Game with Special Moves maybe. Even then I think the first Street Fighter had special moves. I'd recommend avoiding vague or subjective labels altogether, and stick to firsts.

Also, I'm pretty sure Akalabeth did the turn-based RPG before Ultima did. Though technically, didn't any mainframe D&D game do the turn-based RPG thing before that?

I've seen this chart posted a few times but it only extends back to 1988. There's also a brief history of PC gaming chart which only goes back to 1990. Why is this? I'm not someone who's very knowledgeable when it comes to older PC games but I've been growing more curious. Is there any way we can compile a new chart to include notable PC games which released prior to 1988? And how far back should we go? I'm not sure if it's really worth going through the 1970s but there were a good chunk of significant PC games in the early to mid 1980s that should be worth sticking on a PC gaming chart. Akalabeth, Zork, the first Ultima, Microsoft Flight Simulator 1.0, Elite, Trinity, Starflight etc.

Because before 1987, most "DOS" machines were IBM Personal Computers(8088), XT's(8088), PCjr's(8088), AT's(286), or at the ass end of the 80's a PS/2 with a 386 on the high end. Even the Total DOS Collection only goes back to 1981, and there was less than 20 titles released that year. Most videogames on computers prior to 1987 were on Amiga, TRS-80, CP/M, or fucking mainframes. Still, there was some good games from 1981-1987 that do get ignored, since most people just focus on the popular titles from the era like the Zork series, Rogue, Ultima series, Kings Quest series, Wizardry series, etc.

I entirely support anyone willing to emulate all DOS releases from 1987 going back and make images like you've posted. A "complete" history of DOS gaming would be awesome. And companion images for complete Amiga and other retro PC gaming would be great too.

This thread is for discussing all things MAME and arcade allowed under the board rules. Also so I can share the romset I've been working on.

This is not intended to be a complete romset of every game dumped, but every game that actually works under MAME. Minus all the barcade, pinball, slot machine, pachinko, mahjong, porn, and other assorted crap titles most people would never touch. This also excludes arcadized console games(Nintendo VS system, etc), Tiger electronic handhelds and Game&Watch titles. This is a completely merged MAME romset, so all the clones(regional variants and revisions) and BIOS files are contained within the same .zip file as the parent game. If you wish to play a different region or variant of the game, just rename the zip to the version you want. The end result of this is a very clean rom list. No BIOS files littering the folder, and you don't have 18 variants of the same game to scroll through. You can also be certain that the game is playable, and is actually a videogame and not something else.

Keep in mind many games expect you to have a joystick, trackball, wheel, or other specific controls. A large number of racing games act funny if you don't have the hardware it's expecting. A decent amount of sports games react the same way. It's possible to map a lot of that to a controller with analog sticks, but not all games will control 100% properly unless you have the right sort of controller for them. Best of luck to keyboard users.

I'm trying to update the set every 10 mame revisions or so, but I'll update if something major pops up, like a major new game or emulation improvements. When an update comes out, I'll put up an update pack to update all needed roms to the latest standard. All you need to do is drag and drop or copy+paste the roms and overwrite the old ones. Then I'll take down the old fullset and upload the new fullset. I'm going to try to keep from too many update packs before updating the fullset, but shit happens.

As of 5/3/2019, the current fullset is 0.205, and the current update packs are 0.205 to 0.206 and 0.206 to 0.209.

With 0.209 having that new Atari game that just got dumped, I'm going ahead and updating the set to 0.209. Gonna post an update pack and a new game pack for 0.209 for those that want to update from 0.206 or don't care to update. I will eventually be pulling down the complete set packs to replace them with 0.209, but I'd like to hold off on that until I finish up the 4th gen of the definitive version project. I would wait longer, but I have reason to suspect a game in one of the packs got corrupted.(Bombjack Twin in 1991-1995 to be specific) As usual, updating is just copy+pasting the new .zip files over the old ones and replacing them entirely. The 0.206 to 0.209 update pack assumes you already got the 125 games I missed in the pack here: >>7629

EDIT3: Alright, figured out the problem. HDD was dying, files were being corrupted, so they were being kicked out as invalid. Moved everything over to new HDD, managed to save the CHD games, but some regular games got borked. I'm just going to put everything I'm missing plus the games I'm sure I've missed into the same zip.

EDIT8: Found Fire Fox in the 197X-1985 set. It shouldn't be there, since it's a Laserdisc (10+GB CHD) game. Also being removed for being LD games, Cobra Command from the 1986-1990 set, Cliffhanger from the 197X-1985 set, M.A.C.H. 3 from the 197X-1985 set, Us Vs Them from the 197X-1985 set, and Cube Quest from the 197X-1985 set. If anyone wants to host the LD CHD files, I'll be glad to make a ROM pack for the LD games.

Thanks a lot for the great work you're doing OP.

P.S. Have to say, some games from good list I've tried were quite impressive

don't understand how someone can be a retro gamer and be born after 1995. People born in 1996 like to claim they "grew up with" the N64 but they didn't, their first console was probably as PS2.

I'm 26 years old. So I was a teenager not too long ago, but honestly, my generation seemed A LOT more interested in actually play just good games instead of you Gen Z kids born after 1995 who only want to play the "cool" games like COD, Madden, FIFA, LOL, DOTA 2, and GTA 5. Hilarious how the teenagers playing these games are all hipster idiots who need to constantly rub in the fact that they're liberals.

It's weird, but if you look at those "Teens React" videos (particularly the Smash Bros. one), you'll see that the 1996 and up generation just doesn't know anything about classic 90s video games, anime, music, movies, or TV shows.

Heck, they don't even know early 2000s classics. Why is that? Shouldn't a 19-year-old remember shit from 2000-2005?

The PSone (the one with the LCD screen add-on) was released in 2000. The Dreamcast was released in late 1999. Both these systems had games being released well into the early 2000’s. Whether your early millennial faggot ass likes it or not, this meets the retro cutoff. And nothing is stop any late millennial, Gen Zer, or future generation from picking up these games to play and make it a part of their childhood or later years. What in the fuck is this pointless gatekeeping tribalism? Yoomers like you should be encouraging people to play older games from any previous gen so you have a newer generation that cares about curating classics and obscure titles of yesteryear. Why is it that gaming is filled with cynical juvenoia? Is it because you made vidya brands and plastic goodies a part of your identity? You don’t really see this shit in music and film where the older generation is contentious about showing the history of the medium to a younger audience.

TL;DR

Get a life, faget

I don't even remember the crash, really, other knowing that the economy wasn't doing too well. Obama getting voted in and being praised to high heaven was the big thing I remember from that era.

People seem to think "millennial" means "anyone younger than me" for some reason.

It looks like that I make part on no side here. Grow up playing famiclones. Only got to know retro [S]and current, in fact[/S] vidya relatively late in life. I consider myself a retro gamer.

Back in my day NES was all the rage, but before that I had ZX, had to load games from casettes and I did not know any basic, no manual. Will I recommend NES games for todays kids? _Absolutely_, buy raspberri pi, two joystics, install fav emulator and you will have fun for days.

What is the best place to start the mega ten series?

 No.7812

You could start with SMT1 (SNES, I don't recommend starting with SMT2, also SNES, since it's a sequel to 1) but it's not going to be easy and it can be downright obtuse at times.

KMT (SNES remake of Megaten 1 and 2) is not very fun.

MOD EDIT

If you wanna talk about modern entries, we have /v/, and /vg/.
