For some reason, Nintendo only put their best anti-piracy protection on the games they ported to the GBA from the NES library, even though the NES library has been emulated for such a long time. Either get an accurate emulator or if your flash cart lets you, set the save type to EEPROM.

To be fair, the GBA versions aren't straight ports. Besides adjusting the sprites to fit the screen, they did things like fix typos (Ganon is no longer "Gannon"), adjust AI (Dark Link in Zelda 2 can't be cheesed by squatting in the corner), and reinstate features (Castlevania has the stage replay from the FDS release). I imagine they put in plenty of anti-hacking measures underneath it as well.

The subject I guess says it all.

I was interested in an XBOX back in 2018 because I heard it had a lot of good games not on PlayStation 2 (PS2 was the only console I had until getting an Xbox, besides a Nintendo DS I replaced my GBA with but some people don't count handhelds as consoles so idk)

But the Xbox has tons of interesting games not on PlayStation 2 or GameCube or anything. Riddick, Brute Force, Star Wars Republic Commando, Mechassault and of course Halo. Halo was my main reason for getting one. And it was worth it I adore Combat Evolution. One of my all-time favorite video games. I couldn't help but get the next one, Halo 2. To say the least, it's incredible. More guns than the first Halo game, you can hold 2 guns at once and use them simultaneously, you play as a Covenant Elite in some chapters and it has a universe-building story that allowed Halo to have more lore like books and such.

>>Ron Perlman: "Master Chief, mind telling me what you're doing on that ship?"
>>John 117: "Sir, finishing this fight."

The game ended before I knew it. Made me waste money on an Xbox 360 the following year just to play more Halo games. I know 360 isn't retro but I'll say, I don't like it. Piece of shit console. Can't do much with it. Unimpressive. I had to waste money on a shit console just to continue the Halo story. I wish there were at least a couple more Halo games on the first XBOX. Like, have a third game that continues off from Halo 2's ending, and one spin off of some sort. It'd have made sense if there were more Halo games on the first Xbox, it was the main attraction of the console. I mean, there's a dozen Star Wars games on the XBOX and a bazillion Tom Clancy games so why the hell not more Halo games?

Better yet Microsoft should've waited a few years to release the Xbox 360. I'd have given the original Xbox more time because it's a damn good console. Shouldn't be replaced so soon, let alone with a shitty console like the 360.

Sure, the PlayStation 3 might not have been great at first, being insanely expensive initially, and not having any notable games among it's launch, but it makes an excellent media center as you can play not only DVDs but also Blu Rays, can watch videos of multiple file types from a USB and even copy them to it's hard drive. And nowadays it's incredible because of the jailbreak scene. There's a Sega Genesis emulator for it you can rewind with, which is a unique feature, haven't seen rewinding being an option on too many emulators for anything really. And the GBA emulator is flawless.
Also with a jailbroken PS3 you can have DVD and Blu-ray ISO images on it's hard drive too, which is wack too. The PlayStation 3 aged like fine wine while the Xbox 360 aged like milk.

It is kinda crazy how much higher quality many aspects of the OGXbox Halo games are. Best movement animations, best voice acting, best vehicle controls, best alien designs, best sound effects, most cohesive art style, best music, best AI, etc. I don't know why the Assault rifle has to both look and sound like a wet fart in the sequels. Why do enemy projectiles get to curve but your can't? Why does the banshee control like complete garbage now? Why do grenades suddenly fly in retarded unnatural arcs? How do they get so many things right in the first 4 years before blowing it all so hard? Well they made a shitload of money so I guess nobody else cares.

I'm amazed how well the PS3 holds up as a media device even today. In some ways it's actually better than the PS4. Booting up the 360 today feels like a toy in comparison. Except for the controller.

>youre including padding by having no cropping
Guess I'm slightly confused as to what this means. Nothing gets subtracted from the image when you go only overscan + 4:3, it just squishes it. But I do think you're correct, I found this old promotional shot from MGS1 that I managed to pretty much make an exact match with using only overscan and 4:3

game native is narrower
par 1:1 is wider

This still kind begs the question why par 1:1 (perfect pixel) is so much wider and whether or not that is what they wanted it to look like.

>> No.7884069

Seems like in lots of cases they didn't really give it much thought.

Any example I realized recently playing Super Metroid on 3ds. In pixel perfect mode, the morph ball is circular, as it is in the GBA games, but planet Zebes in the opening cutscene is an oval.

I'm opting to play the game in 8:7 because you see the morph ball a lot more than you see planet Zebes from space and pixel perfect looks a lot better on a handheld screen.

>> No.7884090

what is the difference between only overscan and all borders? From what I can tell there's a 4 pixel wide black border with just the overscan cropped, "all borders" corrects this and gives an extra 4 pixels of width. From what I can tell, this setting does not in any way impact the actual image at higher resolutions, it just seems to add in 4 pixels where there would be a 4 pixel black border.

>> No.7884335

Only overscan area crops the areas the devs set the original console to cut before displaying the game. Some games will have leftover letterboxing because the letterboxing is part of their display, as a means of diminishing the stretching effect of 4:3 displays. If you set it to crop all borders, it'll cut off those as well.
For all intents and purposes, only overscan area + 4:3 is the image you're supposed to be seeing for most, if not all games. It's the setting TVs expected to receive.

>The PS3 is still actively supported by Sony,
For now, but not forever.

>it just got a firmware update.
Of course it did, it's a networked console, so they have to at least maintain security, until they completely drop it. Microsoft supported Win7 up until around a year ago, but that didn't mean Win7 wasn't still old. There will inevitably come a day where Sony abandons PS3 support, too, and forces all PS3 users to go offline, probably in the next few years when PS5s become more common. They have already tried this before, but just reversed due to public pressure.

Also, the current HDMI version is 2.1, which includes 4K/8K 120Hz , whereas the PS3 only supports limited HDMI 1.4 from 2009.

>the games you consider "modern" will be retro whether you like it or not
Only if there is another evolution in gaming (which will likely be mass adoption of VR headsets). This guy >>7884071 has the same take as me so I'll apply it to your post. PS3-PS4-PS5 games are part of the same era. Sony and Microsoft dabbled with the motion control fad for a bit but even Nintendo no longer cares about that. To me, it's all-or-none when it comes to this 15+ year era of gaming being considered retro.

I also agree with this because they're like portable 5th gen consoles, but I'm not mad that they can't be posted on /vr/.

>it just got a firmware update.
Guarantee it was an anti-piracy update and nothing else. They're not really "supporting" the console.
