No spam.

This board is for the discussion of games released for consoles introduced before or during 1999, the consoles themselves, as well as PC and PS2/Xbox/GC games released before or during 2003.

Ports, remakes, and mods of games eligible for discussion under this rule are also eligible for discussion.

As a special exception due to their absolute age and relative lack of shitposting magnets, both the Dreamcast and Game Boy Advance count as acceptable platforms for discussion.

NSFW content is allowed, but must be spoilered and must be directly related to a game eligible for discussion.

How many NES games out there have some of shield item that actually deflects attacks? Other than the zelda games and wonder boy in monster land I'm having trouble finding more like this.


I can't think of any, but there has to be something out there. Faxanadu maybe? I know it had shields, but I'm not 100% if they actually deflected attacks or not.

Help me out /vr/! After playing a shit ton of Micro Machines 2 I've been craving for more stuff in this style. I can't really think of any top down racers other than Skidmarks (picrel) and Ignition, but there's gotta be a few more knockouts. What should I check out?


Ehm, Rock n Roll racing comes to mind also some SNES Biker mice from mars game.



Try RC Pro AM and RC Pro AM 2 on the NES.

Oh, and why did IBM stop making/manufacturing Hardware for the home electronics market after 2000? What happened then?


Mechwarrior 2


Run start.cmd then type mech2

For multiplayer, type netmech

It automatically connects to the mech2.org IPX server by default for playing online

What general maintenance should be observed to keep a computer's power supply from surging it? Currently I'm just under the impression that any bulging or ancient capacitors should be replaced.

Bumping this thread to share this blog, The CRPG addict:


Dude is playing through a master list of old DOS RPGs (later expanded to all computer non-console RPGs). Of course he touches the classics (Ultima, Wizardy) he also stumbles across a few lost gems. I'm entertained as hell reading this and made me think of this board. Didn't seem to deserve it's own thread, though.

I'm trying to remember a game played in an episode. It was futuristic I believe, side scroller. Exploring levels with lots of hidden doors. I remember him playing some minigame where you wrestle a lion? Or some kind of cat alien or something.

Any body got a clue what I'm rambling about?


Is the series still being subbed, or has it been dropped? Feels like ages since the last release.



Bio Senshi Dan: Increaser to no Tatakai (Or Bio-Warrior Dan, to give the localized title).



The people translating it said back in November that they haven't dropped it, and are just busy. Hopefully they stop being faggots and at least drop us a singe episode soon.


Ayy thanks anon!



I hope so. I'd hate for things to end here when there's so many good episodes waiting for subs out there.

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?

By the Way thanks for the Uploads of Hydro Thunder And Toy Commander! love those games



If it's not fixed already I'll take a look after the 26th. Thanks.


Is there any difference between PAL/NTSC Dreamcast Multi AV/OUT can I use my PAL Dreamcast RGB cable on a NTSC Dreamcast?



Time to check on some pin-outs.


Seems there is RGB on the multi-av from pins 14-16.



>When pin 7 is driven low, the Dreacast will output RGB. If it is left high, you will get Composite Video and Super-Video.

Sega didn't have that nigger Miyamoto so it wins automatically.



>MIyamoto always sucked

I disagree on that. You clearly either have become very salty about the majority of his recent actions(understandable), or have never liked Nintendo to begin with.

That is only an opinion.

However, the video you embedded is far superior to your text comment. It sure shows how Argonaut software got the short end of the stick when it came to the Starfox 2 debacle and such


Also, There is still the late Gunpei Yokoi there, who created both the Game&Watch and Original Game Boy.

>no Underground Gamer


Fuck I used rom-world.com in the 90s, and it's still around. Same Netscape Navigator era left-hand nav bar and everything. Zophar.net's still around, too. I think that's badass. And even though we give it flak, the fact that if you posted a faq to gamefaqs in the late 90s and it's still there (IN SOME CASES UNDER THE SAME URL) is pretty amazing. DMG Ice (devoted to handhelds) is still around. I panicked when I saw their 1000s of reviews were missing, but it turns out they put it into a zip file.

Some of the larger sites like Gamespot (=CNet but formerly part of Ziff Davis media iirc which also published EGM magazine) and IGN have older reviews and previews available, but a lot of the articles and cultural snapshots such as Q&As with their 90s writers, have been scrubbed. I'm pretty sure that IGN's Lexicon originated as an actually very informative pre-Wikipedia reference source that the IGN64 authors Matt and Peer put together just because they felt like it. Dan Gerst or whatever his name was who got pressured to leave Gamespot for giving bad reviews to big-money games, used to have a reader mailbag section iirc.

Now I need help with properly starting up O2EM on Windows 8.1! I got the BIN file of the BIOS for the Magnavox Oddysey 2 ready and in the BIOS folder, but it still won't boot even with ROMS folder filled with O2 games.


Wait, coolrom got shut down?



No, but it was plundered of Nintendo ROMS because the BIG N threw a fit about it.

What are fullchan's favourite shmups?

What are the mechanics that make you shit blood?

Are you a scrub that's never 1cc'd a single fucking thing?

I've been playing Psikyo's catalogue relentlessly lately. Not much progress with anything but Sengoku Aces, but tonnes of fun has been had.

Is there an image compilation of Shoot'em Ups/shmups/shooting games/etc? I have been using them to cross off games I already own, like a kind of checklist.




Got a new controller, the issue still persists.

Hey guys, i was recently cleaning my closet and found my old ps1 along with a bunch of pirated cds circa 1999-2000, the memory card didn't work for shit and some cds were all fucked up but i managed to find some that were working, now im sitting here with 4 games and a working ps1 with a modchip.

What are some essential ps1 games to have? I have a lots of 700mb disks i can burn.

Here's the PS1 chart.




Heh, would have posted it myself if I was awake earlier. Still taking suggestions on possible games to add/further refining the image.



What about Ogre Tactics/Tactics Ogre for the strategy section or do those not count because they are ports of snes games?



I've honestly been debating on how to handle those, considering Ogre Battle: March of the Black Queen is in English on both the SNES and PS1 while Tactics Ogre: Let Us Cling Together has the SFC version fan translated and native PS1 and PSP releases. I really don't see that much discussion on any of them but the PSP version of LUCT (which seems to get a lot of love from people); as such, I'm not really sure as to how the various versions of them compare with each other. If all of them are worthwhile for their own systems, I'd be happy to put both of the PS1 versions up for those, but some people have rather vocal against bothering with including games on these that are either worse than a prior version of the game, or that have a better version on a newer system.

I'm still not in the know as to why they're always called cuck sack on /v/. Are they actually worth watching?



>bumping a thread from 2015



Yeah. Their opinions aren't always the best, but they are a goldmine for finding obscure old games.

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.

Does the Mega link fail to load for anyone else?



What browser are you using? Just tested the link, it came up fine for me. MEGA uses some funky magic to create the files, if your browser is out of date it might not work.



Oh yeah, that's it. I guess I should keep an emergency updated browser from now on.


>No arcades near me

Closest one is full of touch screen mobileshit and alot of the older cabinets are in poor shape

Feels bad man


I have to say, it's a bit tedious and annoying when there are over a dozen archives and they each require a unique password.
