Anyone else just find RetroArch's user experience way, way too off putting to seriously consider using it? Playnite has the same idea but it's done so much better.

Link has never expressed these thoughts. No LoZ game has ever expressed this idea. No one who has ever played any LoZ has ever carried on thinking that while playing as Link. Zelda sitting in prison is not a game. These two panels fail on every level.

I have a small problem with my Model 1 Mega Drive. I've done 1 switch mod, all is working great but after 5 minutes screen start to flicker like it could not hold V-Sync, sound also slows down. It only takes place on JP/60, EN/60 and EN/50 works as intended. I done some continuity tests and all seems fine. Any help?

>> No.6149271

Giving you a bump. It's been perhaps decades since I've done this but are you sure you read the schematics properly and attached the switch to the correct location? It sounds like you did and the fact that US NTSC and Europe PAL work suggests that the you haven't damaged anything.

Is the switch (only one?) faulty? Also, are you modifying a Mega Drive for the Japanese region or are you modifying one for the some other region?

It sounds like the Japanese NTSC mode is not using the correct clock rate, thus the unstable screen and slower audio.

>> No.6149391

Just went full mad, said fuck it and redo all the wiring with thinner 24AWG Kynar. I also electric tape the Link/COM connector where the switch is. Thought maybe its shorting/interfere with the ground of the switch. Now I'm testing for 30min now on Bare Knuckle and works great.
Thanks for your suggestions

Am I alone in thinking that elements that fast forward makes turn-based players worse?
>Should I grind 2 levels or attempt this next cave at level 10?
>Nah, let's grind them up. Good thing I can fast forward the grind so it will take less than 6 minutes to get there

And fuck the NES games. What about the "modern" SNES and GBC releases of the original Dragon Quest trilogy? Or what about any other JRPG that *supposedly* improves with the addition of fast forward?

I can get behind pressing a button to skip an animation that you watched so many times, like Valkyrie Profile attacks or some summoning spell in Final Fantasy 7 and above. But this is retarded.

I used to think that smart play shortens the grinding because you know what to use and when to use it. Now that getting some extra levels is free real estate, there's no motivation behind making the right choices unless it's about avoid a game over screen.

With fast forward it's easier to opt for grinding instead of taking a gamble to kill a boss that is seemingly stronger than you and yet you can manage because you can play smart.

>> No.6149003

I played Phantasy Star IV with fast forward and FF4.
I was fast-forwarding through 99% of the content because there was literally no thinking, skill or even planning required. The optimal choices were extremely obvious.

Quickly realized the grinding, slow travel and lots of dialogue are there to hypnotize the player into a big timesink.

Fast foward helped me stop playing jrpgs altogether, showed me how empty the whole experience is.

>Now that getting some extra levels is free real estate, there's no motivation behind making the right choices unless it's about avoid a game over screen.
It's a trick. The choices are the same only they take more or less time to unfold.
The fact that a game can be played efficiently and well at 2x, 4x, or 6x the speed just shows you how trivial all the content is.

> With fast forward it's easier to opt for grinding instead of taking a gamble to kill a boss that is seemingly stronger than you and yet you can manage because you can play smart.

There's really no gamble as long as you hit the level/gear check. And if you go unprepared what's the loss? You return back to your savestate....and if you're using an emulator you can have custom savestates. Literally no risk.

I’ve never messed with mario world but I’m doing a hack of SMB1 right now.

If you want to get into hacking that one I recommend SMB Utility. I’ve messed with a few different tools and that one lets you do basically anything besides graphics and music hacking. Very easy to use, just know that there’s some stage hazards you only have access to if you drag other objects below the screen.

Also be wary of bowser cause even if you put him back after moving or adding him, he can cause some glitches.
