It doesn't..I know how to do it. Just because I know how doesn't make it not a pain in the ass.
Yeah missed that, I just picked up on Sega advertising for these things. I hope that means the quality will be better. I don't recall seeing Sega providing advertising for the previous iterations.
Wow, I was just throwing some info out there for you in case you weren't aware of it - no need to get all uppity about it.
Not sure why it is "near impossible" as you say, to get a Genesis working on a modern TV - it's the same as any other RF/composite/S-Video based devices out there and getting those to work on a modern TV, not counting the upscale-lag, and even then, as evidenced in that video, there are ways around it.
I'm not going to count on it. Sega has plugged their ears and refused to listen to fans when it comes to AtGames for the past 11 years, I'd be surprised if they suddenly stared caring. Their social media pages had advertising for the Flashback HD, so they were out there pushing it.
they want money for those XRGB scalers.
Hey, I never said those solutions were cheap!
Thanx for the heads up on retroarch. Didnt know about this b4 and it solves a slight (in) convenience that I had wondered about.
One stop shopping for Mame, Dos and the rest. I use D-fend (reloaded) for the dos game selection and rocket launcher for doom games. This should make it possible to choose among the different types.
Win XP had a gui called "Arcade at home" that worked really well but in a win 7 through 10 world havent found a better way except creating multiple shortcuts (bat fles) for each game. Maybe this is the answer. At least find somethng better than multiple shortcuts.
Why not just get them all?
I have the first gen AT games classic genesis. Sound is indescribable. Like YouTube videos make it sound better.. I mean sonic is literally sounds from the lavatory... And yet some of the clone consoles get it right.. I have an snes mini clone. Plays all of my cartridges perfectly and sounds like it should.. it's a good thing I grew up with snes
Even the new Flashback HD seems to have some serious sound issues and some game killing emulation bugs. It's ridiculous that you could find a version of a Genesis emulator as old as AtGames first piece of junk Genesis/Mega Drive clone and it will still be better than what they put out only a couple months ago.
Been running launchbox/bigbox for about a year. Love it once everything is setup.
How is it for configuring joysticks that aren't the default of the setup? This seems to be what gets me on all of these types of front-ends.
Only 80GB to go until I find out
Mine are setup through the emulators, i.e. retroarch, cemu. Not launchbox.
Sega has delayed the project and is having someone else finish it so it has the quality that everyone expects. Sounds like they want it to not be just another one of the junk boxes you see and actually match the quality of the Nintendo and Sony ones.
Meh. Sega has gone back to the Genesis well waaaay too many times. You can also buy the megadrive combo pack which comes with damn near everything for PC for like $5-10. Plus all the shitty ATgames versions have dilluted the market. I predict these will be $40 or less really quick. Just look at the Playstation Classic. Only reason to buy one of those is to mod it, and they are $40 or less now.
OTOH, I want the Dreamcast Mini. Yeah I already own Crazy Taxi on PC, but still.
And as always.... I want an Amiga mini.
Those are the only mini's I want.
The PS Classic dropped in price because it had a terrible game selection, most of the games were PAL versions, and emulation itself was incredibly poor.
The Analogue Mega SG was also released:
I'd be up for a Saturn rerelease. With the Japanese games that never made it over to North America or the games with limited release.
Shining Force, Saturn Bomberman, Dragon Force (sp?).
Awwwww hell yeah. Still have mine at my Uncles.
Interesting point. I never had any experience with the Saturn (too $$$ for me at the time) and it wasn't around long enough. There could be some unmined gold there.
I was lucky, when I was a kid I had a friend with a Saturn and was able to play some games at his house. It was amazing, but I could never get my mother to buy one for me. I got a Saturn a few years ago and its the only old school system I've kept over the years. Its such and underrated gem of a console with some outstanding (and ridiculously expensive) games.
Nice to see that it comes with Shining Force built in. Though I do consider SF2 a better game, original SF is still a classic.
Shining Force 2 is a better in terms of interface, gameplay and inventory management, but it's much worse than the first one, in terms of classes.
They standardized the class stat table, so every character of the same class is almost exactly the same (some tweaks, but nothing huge like the first one). In addition to this, they were lazy, so all later characters (who come automatically promoted) are assumed to be promoted at level 20. So SPOILER: the Red Baron is almost exactly the same statwize as your own level 20 promoted Baron (at the same level).
So, if you take the time to get your first round of characters up to level 25 before promotion, then you will have that bonus over all future already promoted characters of the same class. It makes the end of he game much easier (because you have a hard after-promotion XP barrier in every battle.) But it makes the rest of the characters you meet quite boring
In Shining Force 1, all character's XP tables are unique (as well as their growth after promotion), which can make late-game party additions a lot more interesting. There were a lot more one-off classes in SF1.
I’m actually planning on that being my next console. I too had a neighbor with one and KNIGHTS was so much fun at the time.
I’ve heard that they’ve cracked the security on them finally.
Im waiting for an n64 mini, not this trash
You might be waiting quite a while because of Rare games without mentioning bond and whoever owns the rights to goldeneye.
I’ll probably get this and that if it ever comes out though.
I do agree, but it really didn't bother me that much. I tended to use the early game characters anyway because I liked the idea of having a group of childhood friends kicking ass, I even go through the trouble of babysitting Slade (such a poor character as a thief, but Ninja is fricking awesome) and Kiwi although he kinda sucks late game. The late characters are backups anyway, for a situation you fail to promote your early characters and they become too weak to do any damage to foes that leveling them up is more pain in the ass than its worth. IE failed to promote Sarah into Monk, which is very likely unless you are using emulator with savestates? Sheela can take that spot.
*edit* God, I want to play that game again so much. Sekiro is pissing me off right now anyway, might as well take a short break and enjoy some stress-free jRPG goodness...
given that an RPi can't run N64 still, they're gonna have a tough time getting an N64 Mini. They need a CPU at the cost level of the RPi to make it happen.
The N64 emulation scene is why I have an N64 and around 150-200 carts. It’s really not a fun system for emulation.
The problem with the N64 mini IMO though is going to be who owns what IP.
Has a movie tie-in game ever been as wildly successful as Goldeneye on the N64?
Newegg has these in their current sale flyer for $40 if anyone still wants one. And no tax for some people. I almost did it but eventually didn't, I already have an rpi I don't use much.
