I would like to have a thread where we could post all kind of documentaries, newsreel stories, footage of early video game tournaments, video game "cameos" in 80's or 90's movies, early video trade shows or promotional VHS tapes. In summary, anything that would instill nostalgia to those who lived those days and also attest that video games were starting to become serious business.

Just like your first time getting laid, you always remember your first one.

Choplifter on the Atari 2600 was that for me. My neighbor had it hooked up in their basement and I played every time I was over.

Probably Super Mario Bros. on the NES. Regardless of the game, the NES was definitely my first console. I soon became more of a PCfag, though, and some of my earliest vidya game memories are of watching my brother playing DOS games.

The NES is still my favorite console to this day.

>first video game

It was on a really old console impossible to remember. before 1988, maybe ZX, but definately before c64 or amiga. It had flames below and you had to walk up descending escalators dodging devils that dropped you to the flaming pit below if you touched them. Really good game, but on later stages, it got really hard. It had basic bleep music, that was just a 5sec loop of some classic track.

Funny thing is that it could be a mid tier phone game today. We have fallen so low.

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.

I made a thread earlier this month on /v/ to share this, but it died due to /v/'s speed, so I'm going to put it here instead. All but 47 games involved in this are /vr/ anyways, and I won't post those. Long story short, I've been working to create a "starter" mame set for people. A rom set that doesn't have 18 clones and knockoffs of space invaders, or mahjong, pachinko, poker, pinball, gambling, or otherwise not worth playing games. And a merged rom set, so all variants of a game are all inside the same .zip, so you don't have 23 different files for the different versions of Street Fighter 2. Merged means the BIOS files are also included inside of the game .zip's, so you don't need to have a bunch of BIOS .zip's in your roms directory. The rom set is also sorted by eras and genres, with the exception of games made in 1985 and prior. This is because I care very little about most games from that era, and sorting 500 games is a pain in the ass. This rom set does NOT include games that require a .CHD to work, since that would take my shitty collection forever to upload. Seriously, some .CHD files are 15GBs. The 2001-current part was about 2GBs, and that took hours to upload.

So, to use these roms, all you need is the compatible version of MAME, which is 0.170. These roms may or may not work on newer or older versions, but I have tested them and they do work fine under 0.170. Download, unzip, and drop all the files into MAME's rom directory. No need for BIOS files.

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.

Maybe, I'm having a horrible time running Die Hard Arcade on Retropie. It barely runs alien vs predator.

When I use Mame on PC, it works great. I'm very new to non-windows based emulation.



Don't bother trying to emulate anything newer than PS1 on a Raspberry Pi 3. There might be a few exceptions here and there, but the CPU is a Cracker Jack prize.

Probably, but my interest in gaming stops at the 16-bit stuff like Amiga, Sega Genesis, and Neo-Geo. So even the oldest Banana Pi is enough.


Where can i get a ghosts and goblins rom



For what emulator? If it's MAME, you have to download the right version of the rom, because their shit always changes.

Anyway I don't know, but I plan to build this:


And the matching roms would be in here:



Those are like 60 GB total each, and I'm not even sure what the differences are. But apparently you can download individual game roms by going into SHOW ALL -> List Contents and then pick a game.

Why do so many people say that this game is unbearable because of the random battles? Have they never played any other RPG from that era?


Because they're really monotonous. And because it's usually people who have somehow triggered the copy protection which doubled the encounter rates.



They're only monotonous if you don't use 4th-D slip.


Because there's so damn many of them. The way the game calculates random encounters is super shitty and primitive. You can literally take one step and end up in a battle, win, take another step and immediately end up in another battle.

To put it into reference, the first final fantasy game has a ~25 step minimum before the next encounter. Mother has none

It doesn't help that you have very limited combat abilities for the first few hours of the game, especially before Magicant. Ninten has no offensive PSI, making most battles before you get Lloyd unnecessarily frustrating and/or long

>unbearable because of the random battles?

It's because the game is designed that way. Very intentionally, it's an uphill battle against all odds. Seriously, have you even played the game?

Mother 3 is pretty fucking good at hammering that point home. Some people die, but it is for the "good of all" bullshit, but it is supposed to be unfair and hard. You personally grinding for levels or gear does not matter. Play the game as it is. Maybe the grind was supposed to be horrible part of the story?

Sorry for the webm.

I just played through Dune 2 as the Atreides. Despite having plenty of dated interface and gameplay aspects, I enjoyed it. Dune 2000 updated the gameplay a lot more (especially the OpenRA version), but I prefer the aesthetics of the original game.

So, I can read Japanese, which probably increases the amount of games I can play by quite a bit . Do you know of any great Japanese retro games that never got an English translation?

I'm mostly looking for NES, GameBoy and Genesis games, and I'm not much into JRPGs.

Its one fault is that it takes a few levels to become challenging, and for the mechanics to shine. The soundtrack should tide anyone over til then, though.

I bet GB has tons.

So, our threads kept getting deleted over there, at first because of magnet links being posed in the threads, but now I really don't know what the fuck for, so I'm personally moving my shit over here.

Release google spreadsheet link: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/14fCQ3NXIlW1ZC_gjIejpQVPG34fLWmSoXYgSTyxdRWM/edit

That spreadsheet has most, if not all, of the releases from various high-quality DC release groups around.

So… yeah. What are your favorite games for this thing?

>If you're using a GDEMU you should just use GDIs.

Yeah, for that most part that's my plan, aside from things like the Shenmue english dub, or things I can't find a GDI for.

Thanks for the run down. Excited to get this thing up and running.



The dreampi is cool more for what could be possible with dreamcast-related online services than for actually playing the games online.

Related, I've been struggling to get kallistiOS to compile so I can play around with it and making some simple programs. It would be really nice to have a better way to manage files on the gd-rom, maybe over the network from another device even.



>The dreampi is cool more for what could be possible with dreamcast-related online services than for actually playing the games online.

Would be cool if it served as a hub for other discontinued online console services. Don't know how feasible that is really.


Are there any CDI rips of Guilty Gear X floating around out there? I have the Echelon rip but two of the multilinked rar files give checksum errors. I have the GDI but I haven't converted a GDI into another format in such a long time and I can't find a good tutorial on how to do it.



I have one basically done with a few extra minutes of audio vs Echelon but the CDDA keeps playing out of order. I’ll try to get back to it and figure it out.
