have a Retrocade 60 in 1 cabinet arriving from UPS tonight and one of those AliExpress knockoff NeoGeo bartops with 1200 games arriving by Christmas. Good thing I bought the wife a new iPhone and diamond earrings.

I got a Retropie kit last week and have it mostly set up and running now.  Probably could have gotten it cheaper, but the kit I purchased off Amazon included everything you need to just put it inside the included case, switch it on, install Retropie/Emulation Station, add ROMs, and go.  I set it up to read games off a 256 GB flash drive and am working on filling it up with everything it can handle. 

The Pie is really small -almost half the size of an NES Classic Mini- and the Emulation Station front end is really easy to navigate.  It runs all the 8 and 16-bit era stuff pretty much perfectly and can also handle PS1 games pretty much perfectly as far as I can tell.  You can also enable texture smoothing/filtering which I did not think it would be able to handle, but the Pi 3+ models have enough power to keep games running at their intended framerates with these enhancements on.  It can't run N64 games all that well, but that's OK- I have the GPD WIN 2 for more powerful console emulation.

At some point I'd like to get a bar top arcade unit and stick this thing inside it.  Really easy way to run old arcade games!

How the Dreamcast copy protection was defeated
I remember this as it happened and each revelation made it clear it was a matter of when, not how. The MIL-CD thing led to a bunch of groups saying basically that and Utopia got there first.

There was also a trick found with burning the content in reverse order (packing an iso then having it reversed at a hex level or something, then burn THAT) onto the discs would autoboot certain ones because of the OS used and because Sega was in general lazy about all of this. That latter point you can tell by as the article states, Sega's attempts to combat this were just to disable MIL-CD support, not you know, actually fix anything. Because by that point the groups already had moved onto making everything self-booting without the need for it. I think if you had the later revisions it just had to do an extra step.

All this stuff is actually why there's a big project that's been going on to re-rip the Dreamcast games and repackage them. Setting the Dreamcast into these different modes wears out the drive, you can actually physically hear it grinding worse than normal if you use an early rip. They figured out some way to have it stay in a single mode and keep the drive speed constant or something that makes it so the drive isn't constantly shifting. Also improved padding where it's the data cloned, which became standard eventually. It doesn't spin down to move the laserhead as often. I've seen some claims, but I can't confirm anything, that the latest project is supposed to actually be healthier for the Dreamcast than using a lot of the actual games because of the improved packaging. I know we all have at least one retail game that makes the Dreamcast sound like it's grinding up the disc and the drive and everything else inside, Metropolis Street Racer pretty infamously has copies that do this, and I thankfully have one of those copies versus the "Greatest Hits" one which I think fixes it a bit. I believe it's mostly earlier titles, especially ones that actually did fill up or nearly fill up the disc and then seek all over it.

The PS1 actually has this same problem with having to do re-seeks across the disc, and as the drive wears it becomes quite noticeable. PS2 Slim's also have it. (Regular PS2's probably do as well, but you can't hear it over everything else from one of those beasts. Same for Xboxes probably.)

Lazy devs not packing their data better using methods that came out years after their games. ::)

I actually played it in the arcade at Camp Snoopy in the Mall of America back in the 90s and always wanted to replay it again.  I recently put it on my SNES Classic and... it's not that good.  Shitty hit detection and the control system is wonky as hell, especially mapped to a SNES controller.  I do enjoy the cheese factor and managed to play through it,  The characters were going to be in Pit Fighter II on the Genesis, which got pretty far along before it was scrapped.  I've been trying to find a ROM of that for a long time.

Crazy to read how much of Nintendo's influence changed Sim City from simulation like software with no goal to an actual game with goals and rewards.
Kinda weird Nintendo never went back to it with the N64 or GameCube.

Woah, and it has advisor guy plus first person 'walk in your city' gameplay. A mixture of Simcopter and Simcity.

Quote
However, in a twist, the player can then shrink their nigh omniscient overhead perspective into a first-person, citizen-on-the-streets view. While in this perspective, other Sims can be interacted with. They will tell the player about their lives and neighborhoods. Sighting a gun toting criminal on the sidewalk is a good indicator that more police stations need to be constructed. These city dwellers are rendered as cartoon sprites.

Apart from the ability to walk the streets there is some additional city interactivity available in the first-person perspective.
At airports, the player can now access a helicopter. The vehicles' horizontal movement is controlled via the control stick and vertical movement with the up and down c-buttons.
In a hide-and-seek mini-game Dr. Wright assigns you a person to find on the streets of your city. A bar on the bottom of the screen shows if you are drawing near to the quested person. There are some rewards to be had from listening to these persons' stories.
If a rail system is in play players can board it; it can also be ridden, and the player may look out of the window of their car.
Using Mario Artist: Paint Studio players can create a character, animated with two frames of animation, and import him or her into SimCity 64. This character can roam the streets until the player decides to make a new one.

Ah yes, Nintendo. Always loved wasting resources on software for obscure pheripherals only available in Japan.

I'm not sure.  I didn't build it.

I am thinking about building one this year though.  Maybe something fairly simple like getting an Arcade 1up and using the cabinet and monitor but customizing the games.

Yeah I have 2 Arcade 1 Ups (Atari 12 in 1 and Street Fighter) with risers and 2 bar tops (60 in 1 multicade jamma board and Pandora's Box 9 built into a Neo Geo knockoff).  The multicade didn't have any art on it so I've been adding stuff to it.

December was a pretty crazy month for me-

1) Picked up a hori fighting stick for saturn
2) Picked up a dual stick joystick for the sat with Virtua ON, Gundam Side Story 1-2-3 and GunGriffon 2
3) random sat pickups: NBA JAM, UMK3
4) PGM Jamma board + Do Don Pachi Daioujou convertion (I'm not dropping 2k on a single arcade pcb
5) motherfucking BAD DUDES arcade board. The game is still awesome.
6) Dreamcast GDEMU.

The dreamcast gdemu is AMAZING. Everything loads so quickly, and it resurrected my old dreamcast. It also patch every game for VGA support. I use a vga box for my dc and it was annoying to boot my originals imports with a bootleg codebreaker disk.

you can get  :doge alternative  :doge gd emu boards on ebay for 70$, the market for legit boards is plagued with scalpers.

Put this in the anime thread, but- High Score Girl isn't the complete series.  The anime covers about half the story and has kind of an incomplete ending.  There's three more episodes coming out as OVAs in March.  Don't know if/when Netflix will get them.

And yeah, Himu, how have you not watched this yet?  SFII is a huge focus in the series and it goes right up through each release, including Super Turbo when people find out about Akuma for the first time!

Yes!  No loli (well, they're kids, but it's not all uguu'd up), very little cliche animu crap, or any of that junk.   Just good, clean nostalgia-filled fun.  Starts off during the beginning of the 16-bit era (besides the arcade games, the main character plays a lot of PC-Engine!) and goes up through the beginning of the 32-bit era.  Has lots of actual video game footage included.  Made me feel all nostalgic.  :-[

It's possible, but I kind of doubt it.  Different Kanji for Ono, too.

Here's some unrelated trivia about the comic-
Quote
On August 5, 2014, Osaka District Police searched the offices of Square Enix, the publishers of High Score Girl acting on an IP violation claim by SNK Playmore stating that the manga allegedly features over 100 instances of characters from The King of Fighters, Samurai Shodown, and other fighting games. In response, Square Enix voluntarily recalled all printed volumes and temporarily suspended publication of future volumes and digital sales. However, the manga continued its run in Monthly Big Gangan.

In August 2015, it was reported that Square Enix and SNK Playmore had reached a settlement, cancelling the lawsuit and enabling the manga to be sold again in different formats.

Knowing how litigious / aggressive / paranoid Square's legal team is, the fact that they got to that point is absolutely mind-blowing. You'd think they would have caught that and gotten permission before letting that out the door. Insane.

Did not know about this either.
SimCity64 was one of the first games they showed on the 64DD. The original EXCITING SELLING POINT was the ability to walk around your city IN TRUE 3D. Of course it got delayed five years or whatever and then the 64DD bomba with developers even in Japan so they killed the whole thing.

There's also a SimCity 2000 release on N64.

PC Gamers got to VISIT THEIR CITIES IN 3D in:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Streets_of_SimCity
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SimCopter

The latter of which has this great story:
Quote
The game gained controversy when it was discovered that designer Jacques Servin inserted an easter egg that generated shirtless "himbos" (male bimbos) in Speedo trunks who hugged and kissed each other and appear in great numbers on certain dates, such as Friday the 13th. Their fluorescent nipples were drawn with a special rendering mode usually reserved for fog-piercing runway landing lights, so they could easily be seen from long distances in bad weather. The egg caused hundreds of himbos to swarm and crowd around the helicopter, where they would be slashed up by the blades, and then need to be air-lifted to the hospitalówhich earned the player easy money. The egg was caught shortly after release and removed from future copies of the game.

The designer was fired afterwards for adding unauthorized content (which delayed the release of the game, and caused Maxis to miss Christmas season). He cited his actions as a response to the intolerable working conditions he allegedly suffered at Maxis.[1][2] This caused a member of AIDS Coalition to Unleash Power (ACT UP), a gay AIDS organization, to call for a boycott of all of Maxis' products, a measure which Servin rejected.[3] Some months later, a group named RTMark announced its existence and claimed responsibility for the himbos being inserted into the game along with 16 other acts of "creative subversion."[4] Servin stated that he had received a money order of $5,000 from RTMark for the prank.[4]

I want to say the whole VISIT YOUR CITY IN 3D thing was proclaimed for each new SimCity game but then never made it into any other games except the Wii one. SimCity 3000 at one point was supposed to be totally 3D but they scrapped the design entirely because it created all sorts of issues they hadn't planned for.

New Sega Saturn Translation (!) for Linkle Liver Story

http://aishsha.blogspot.com/2019/01/linkle-liver-story-released.html
SSF is the recommended emulator. Getting that to read disc images is such a pain. (As I have found out yet again.) I just burned a fucking disc like a neanderthal. Let's see how this goes.

-

Works fine on SSF 0.12betaR4, which is the latest stable release. Played about an hour and beat the first boss without any issues. Only had a brief stutter in the opening cutscene.
The music in the starting area sounded odd, but that appears to be normal. The instrument just sounds bad. :doge

I used the default settings for SSF, didn't touch anything besides screen size. HLE BIOS works fine also, no need to track down a real one.

They refer to them interchangeably, so I assume they have the same issues. The version number they give is yabause-0.9.14, which is what the retroarch core is called. Tried that, but it didn't even start. Could be something fucky with my retroarch config, but I can't be bothered to troubleshoot this right now. Standalone Yabause 0.9.15 works, but exhibits the sound glitch (a constant high-pitched note that gets louder with every input :doge ).

Mednafen boots, but I didn't play long enough to confirm the world map crash. No reason to assume they're not correct about it, anyway. 

Code: [Select]
======================================================
Emulators to use
======================================================
The game is VERY picky with the emulation software.
Hence, it simply freezes eventually on mednafen and
has some issues on the most popular emulators available
today.
 - SSF (number 1 recommended, though it has some
   reported lag and framerate drop issues);
 - Yabause/YabaSanshiro (play the game fine mostly,
   but experience troubles when playing separate
   musical pieces in the beginning and the end:
   yabause-0.9.14 version was used for testing);
 - Mednafen (v1.22.0 or earlier) is not recommended -
   game freezes on global map;
 - Real hardware. THE GAME HAS BEEN FULLY TESTED
   ON AN ACTUAL SEGA SATURN SYSTEM WITHOUT ANY
   ISSUES DETECTED. It goes without saying that
   it is the best option to play the game.

Tried standalone Yabause 0.9.14 too for the hell of it. No high pitched sound this time, but the sound effects are all kinds of broken. Crackly or don't even trigger properly. The music warbles like hell, too. And the shadow under the protag is bright white. Scratch that, all shadows are white. Some static sprites (two large trees) move a couple pixels in the opposite of whatever direction you press on the d-pad.

Hold on, I was using the OpenGL renderer (inherited the settings from the newer version I tried before). The software renderer handles the shadows correctly, at least.

Shame, because yabause has a lot less input lag than SSF.

I also tried Kronos, which is yet another fork of Yabause or uoYabause or YabaSanshiro (sigh), but that didn't even boot.

Finished it just now. Cute game. Very easy and short, but enjoyable nonetheless.

Ran perfectly on SSF, too, outside of a couple slowdowns around 3D objects. It was worst in an early bossfight against a big moai head, but smooth sailing afterward.

I'm surprised that it's a real SMS and not a pi3 with some 5000 roms in 1 megapack running.

The kind of person that would shell out a few hundred for a custom case like that would definitely want to have it contain a real Master System.
