Nocturnall Illusion Renewal was a dissapointemnt

I remember playing Nocturnal Illusion when i was like 15 around Y2K, and then remembered that not too long ago that "Renewal" version came out, so i went and checked the picture set on exhentai.

They just recolored the damn pictures, and also managed to apply more censorship than before. That's not how you do remakes.

I tried to play once as the Samurai guy in AW2, and somehow i recall one mission being extremely hard, to the point i failed so much that i just quit playing, then after some years i tried the game again and everything was really easy.

I'm trying to play YU-NO in NP21 fmgen and I'm noticing that no matter what sound settings I choose (and yes I am using the 86 card), the game outputs YM2203 audio for whatever reason.

I'm playing the CD-ROM version too so I know for a fact this shouldn't be happening.

Any help?

I have no idea as far as the answer to your problem but Yu-No is in my top 10 so I wish you luck.

You could also play the Windows version. The fan translation fixes the shitty audio problem but if you insist on playing it in Japanese I don't really know what to tell you.

I'm torn between Alien Soldier and Sin and Punishment for my favorite, they're their masterpieces, 2D and 3D respectively.

Mischief Makers is also genius.

Least favorite of the ones I played might be Light Crusader, although it's still pretty good, definitely feels the weirdest since Treasure didn't use to make isometric RPG-ish western-looking games, but it's not bad and it still has the Treasure feel here and there, oddly.

Was an Amiga game, was called wax something, forgot

The title screen was an orange-yellow title on a black background. Was a dungeon crawler too. What stuck with me is that every time you die, the music changes into something ominous (changes for every map) and you see a dead picture of your player with a "Try again?" thing. I remember a cutscene where you were in England and they wanted to hang you, and there was a pic of the player hung on a black backdrop.

It's like the Deadly Premonition version of Clock Tower; So bad it's good with alright gameplay and a still a bunch of tense parts despite all the silly.

On a scale of one to ten, how would you rate your pain?

I'm actually somewhat interested. Most of the people involved with the production have quite a pedigree. Yes I know it's probably going to do shit and I have plenty of my own doubts. My wishlist for this thing is that it's open so I can put my own emulators and such on it if I so desire (seems like it will), have at least some level of internet connectivity (mainly for software purposes- shitty android devs, for example, are more likely to flock to it if it's got some sort of Android compatibility or a way to download games off the web? I don't know man. Just having android-type games run easy on this thing would be gr8), run decently and be easy to record. Shit, the price is even acceptable.

No it's not. I even know what you're talking about and both of those claims are bullshit.

>>4488

Yeah, I'm mostly intending to use it as a better Retron 5. For $150 they could easily make some sort of much more powerful Android dealy so the hardware is going to be less efficient than it could be but that's fine, it doesn't need to be high end. I think it has some sort of ARM chip on it. And maybe it'll have internet connectivity.

So, I've been working on this CRPG Book Project since 2014.

It's a non-profit, free guide into RPG history, written by fans, modders and devs alike - including people like Scorpia and Chris Avellone.

Pic above is the review for Daggerfall, written by the developer of Age of Decadence. So far we've got 380 pages done, covering over 200 RPGs - you can download the latest release it here: https://crpgbook.files.wordpress.com/2016/06/crpg_book_preview_4a.pdf

But we still need reviews on a bunch of RPGs, like the Krynn trilogy, Ultima III, Hard Nova, Wizard's Crown, Might & Magic III, Heimdall, Unreal World, Black Crypt, StoneKeep, Nox, Siege of Avalon, etc…

Anyone here interested in helping out?

Hi Felipe. If I were a better writer I'd contribute, but good luck with the project. I've been keeping an eye out since you've first announced it.

Could you recommend any CRPG graphically/ atmospherically similar to Daggerfall but stronger on outdoor exploration? If I can get it working on my PC, would be happy to contribute a review.

That's my question.

The 4chan /vr/ is a fantastic place, but the only thing I dislike is the eternal discussion of what's retro and what is not.

In my opinion, discontinued hardware is retro, that includes PS2, Gamecube, Dreamcast…

What is not retro? Current Generation and the inmediately preceding one, even if the hardware is discontinued. That's why Wii is still not retro.

What do you think?

For me it's basically stuff like this:

386SX PC, Amiga 500, and older computers

NES

Sega Genesis

So pretty much the stuff you'd be able to find in the very early 90's and prior, and where pic was a good example of cutting-edge 3D.

Anything prior to 2003, and anything on the Dreamcast or GBA regardless of year, according to the Board Owner

I'm the new board owner. I'm personally in the (unfortunately small) camp that believes "retro" really and truly means pre-NES/SMS stuff like Atari games, Colecovision, Pong Consoles, 70's/early 80's Arcade games like iRobot, Sinistar and Space Invaders, Vectrex, VIC-20, C64 and stuff. Of course when we say we're talking about "retro games" a lot of people mean Nintendo games, some mean 16-bit stuff and others pretty much everything before the 6th gen. The 6th gen really is the first "modern" generation (excluding the Dreamcast) but it was a great time for video games because all these companies were experimenting with this cutting edge hardware, and it was still possible to make games without fuckhuge multi-million dollar budgets (and technically it still is possible but the current slew of wham-bam-thank-you-mayam investors we have in this fucked up system don't believe in long term investments anymore, nor do they want to take risks nowadays)

Of course pre-1985 stuff is not what we exclusively come here for because MOST people who like "retro" games mean differently despite the literal definition. I personally love talking about Japanese home computers, SEGA consoles, arcade games and stuff that falls into similar categories, but I enjoy the broad topic of this stuff in general. In the sense of /vr/ terms defining "retro", I do believe the Dreamcast should be considered retro because it was the end of an era. It was the time where arcades/arcade games drew their final breath, and the platform as a whole was really ambitious. The Dreamcast gave us a very bright look into the future of video games that unfortunately died along with the console. Its it's own special period, like the apex of all the things we collectively love about 20th century video games even if it's not necessarily the best console of it's era.

I don't believe that anything afterwards should be considered retro ever because of how different the world of games was in the 20th century as opposed to the modern industry. However I do find early 6th gen discussion acceptable since it'sPost too long. Click here to view the full text.
