When is there gonna be a Nintendo 64 clone console that's like the Retron?

It should be simple seeing how there are N64s the size of cartridge.

Also the Nintendo 64was released in 1996, so why was the patent made in the 2000s?

Some months ago, I bought a second-hand GameBoy (DMG). I tested it in the pawn shop, and it worked.

I never used it again until today. I put some fresh batteries and I turned it on. The led turns on, but in the screen nothing happens. I tried with a cartridge and without it.

What happens? What can I do?

Depends on how good you are with configuring host LAN and DOSbox (or a virtual machine), and which genres you want. I'm assuming you've already got things like DOOM, DN3D, some C&C and so on?

Right+B lets you move through Rock Tunnel in 1st gen Pokémon games without having to a) waste an attack slot on a pokémon you actually want to use by teaching it Flash b)wasting a slot on your belt with a throw-away pokémon that you taught Flash, thus weakening your team.

Right+B is the only way to play Gradius and similar shmups, unless you like seeing black stars floating in white space. Metroid 2 looks pretty trippy with it too (but admittedly not as nice as its default custom palette).

I suppose I could've made a shorter thread subject, but I didn't, because I'm evil.

Anyway, for me that game would be Big Red Racing. Such a fun wacky racing game. Me and a friend used to play the demo for hours just trying to make big jumps outside the track.

Actually I've spent more time playing the demo than the full game. Those were the days!

I'm afraid that if I were to ever try the game again, it wouldn't feel special and I'd just be like "That's all it was?" and all the good memories of it would be ruined.

Got any games like that, /vr/?

Shit is so cash. Just got into World 3 for the first time, rolling with a:

-Gladiator Bartz, previously mastered Knight & Mystic Knight

-Black Mage Lenna, previously mastered White Mage

-Samurai Krile, previously mastered Chemist, Monk and Berserker

-Dragoon Feris, previously mastered Thief & Ninja

And everyone's mastered Blue Mage, because that makes learning Blue Magic far less of a headache.

>soul of rebirth

First off, consider getting the Mod Of Balance Hack. Makes magic leveling more balanced.

Here's some other strats:

-Have Minwu cast Shell+Wall+Protect+Barrier in pretty much every battle in the Unknown Palace. The first two increase your Mag Def, the third ups your Phys Def, the last ups your Spec Def. Enemies there LOVE to cast Lv8 spells like Death and Curse against the whole party. And for anyone who might be confused, levels of spells aren't like FFV, where any character whose level is a multiple will be affected. Here, spell level just means how powerful it is/likely it is to connect. A Level VIII Death spell can mean a instant Game Over if you've not cast Shell+Wall, and even then, a character might die.

-In battles with 'easier' enemies, constantly use spells; the aforementioned Shell+Wall+Barrier+Protect, and also Cure, Life and Esuna. In Soul Of Rebirth, you simply can't afford for Minwu to spend four turns removing status ailments through single-target casts of Esuna. The monsters will just cast those ailments again, faster than you can clear them, and you can quickly find yourself in an unwinnable situation. You need to train up Esuna so it can reliably clear all four characters of ailments in one cast.
