>say something nice about it -flash carts are cheap and generally available -tons of games released, with basically the entire system library is freely available for download. -file sizes are generally manageable (most games 16-64 MiB, some games up to 512 MiB) -good amount of RPGs, tactics, and puzzle games -a handful of full 3d action games, including Super Mario 64 and Tony Hawk Proving Ground and finally: The OG DS uses a reflective screen, so it is easily viewable in direct sunlight. As far as I know, the OG DS is the most recent gaming device that is fully playable in direct sunlight. The only other things that come close are Panasonic toughbooks and hacked e-ink e-readers. The DS is very comfy for a nice little morning sunbeam warmup session.
3DS is easy to homebrew and get free games. Although the only actually good ones are New Leaf and Smash and those are both dead. DSi - The rich kid's DS it has a camera DS Light- It can play GBA games. DS - It exists.

>>547 PSP has some fun games on it. They're all very easy to hack these days, you should definitely hack yours if you haven't done so. Then get a sony bullshit to micro sd adapter and put in a nice card of like 32 GBs and up. I thought the PSP was the gayest shit ever growing up because of that disk drive but it's actually really cool once you just run all your games from an SD card. Check out the PSP thread here for some game recommendations. I find the Final Fantasy III remake to be exceeding comfy. I'm not the kind of person who really finishes games but I got like 10 hours in and enjoyed it a lot. PSP also works very well for playing PS1 games. Check CDRomance for PSP Eboots that are all ready to go, or you can try making them yourself from PS1 isos. >is Resident Evil comfy for me, hell no. I don't find survival horror comfy in any way. It's like the opposite for me, all edgy and jumpy and shit. sometimes enjoyable and exciting but not relaxing. but I know lots of people do really like the genre. I found the intro to Silent Hill to be very /kino/ but I stopped enjoying it once it got to fighting monsters. There are lots of games you can be comfy with if you played them as a kid though. I really like Castlevania: Symphony of the Night for the stained glass and cool gothic aesthetic. >gameboy color Some games are fun but I find it pretty hard to deal with the unlit screen these days. There are some mods and lcd replacements you can do though to get a backlit screen in there. The Zelda games are fun enough to be worth emulating, as are the Survival Kids games and Pocket Bomberman. Some people really like Legend of the River King but I got kinda bored after 5 minutes. The real hardware is great but it pretty much takes a backlight mod and a flashcart for the full experience. so a basic USB controller and an emulator are a much more approachable and cheap setup. >controller I recommend the 8bitDo brand of controllers, been quite happy with mine. You can also get a real controller and a USB adapter. I like the ones made by 'raphnet' brand but they are a little bit pricey.
>>549 Wish I could go back to never having played HL2. I'd like to play the new Alex game but won't be building my new desktop until the fall. Also want to play the new Doom game but have to wait for that as well. Never played Skyrim, not really my thing. >wasting away so much time with mindless internet browsing an youtube binging Very relatable. My attention span has gotten very short lately. I used to spend a lot more time reading on the internet but now I have more trouble with long-form text. I can hardly sit through a whole movie. I definitely haven't been binging Diablo as much as I thought I would (though I have still been chipping away) as I still seem to end up refreshing the same shit over and over for the next dopamine hit. Hard to do a dopamine fast when you're stuck at home. Might have to spend a day painting.
>>554 spent a lot of time as a kid trying out shitty hombrews and stuff think I'll restore mine with a new housing, cos why not? https://www.aliexpress.com/item/33031198635.html?spm=a2g0o.cart.0.0.1a003c00QqIDvQ&mp=1
>>555 checked >Wish I could go back to never having played HL2. I'd like to play the new Alex game but won't be building my new desktop until the fall. Also want to play the new Doom game but have to wait for that as well. Same situation. Waiting for black friday sales, new hardware, and BTC to go up. Can't wait to make the jump from 1920x1200 @60Hz on my 1st gen i7 built in 2008. Hopefully those games will make the long wait worth it.

>>590 extremely based, thanks
Having some trouble running this game well without input lag. >Windowed Mode under Windows 7 - no input lag <Fullscreen under Windows 7 - unplayable input lag <Windowed Mode under WINE - unplayable input lag <Fullscreen under WINE I originally thought my problems were due to WINE but I'm not sure anymore since even on Windows it sucks ass in fullscreen mode. I'm normally not a fan of gaming in windowed mode, so I'm going to look into the borderless fullscreen mode mods and maybe the directx10 renderer as well. Does anyone have any advice for getting this to run well under WINE? almost feels criminal to run a game this redpilled on an israeli spyware OS
G N U : Use kentie's DeusExe as the launcher. Grab the files then put them in the .../System subdirectory. This involves overwriting the core executable file so you should back it up first. Then on launch, set borderless full screen in the launcher settings. Your winecfg should NOT be set to 'virtual desktop'. For me this has eliminated the input lag and the game is now playable. The mouse lag problems in other modes are noticeable on the game's menu, once you get it right the menu should feel just as responsive as the rest of your DE.
>>472 true. the only right wingers are the NSF and FEMA solders, but latter in the game you realize they have logical motives.
>>76 why

I'm making a mod that adds Whites into starbound, with White European guns like the AR15
good post but take it to /v/. also explain what starbound is. this is a 30yo boomer website and we don't keep up with what the zoomers are playing
>>600 not op but starbound feels like dwarf fortress for retards. better graphics and less complexity essentially. not a great game, but not terrible either
Too diverse for me to enjoy. I tried playing it but the grind was dull and felt unrewarding.

adventures in Vita land Poking around at the vita. Never did too much with it but I like to check in every 12-18 months to see what's new. Unfortunately it seems retroarch snes still kinda sucks, same crap where you have a choice between snes2002 that's glitchy as hell visuals with weirdly bent sound, and snes2005 that looks nice but also has fucked up sound since it chugs all over the place. It seems like now there's a plugin to do overclocking, so maybe that will finally make 2005 playable. Aside from the main crap about the snes emulator, I've encountered a couple minor frustrations that have generally reminded me of why I've left this thing to sit in its case for so long. I popped out the memory card to put some files on, but realized it's some proprietary shit. So then I went to FTP, but got frustrated at the very bad performance. So then I managed to get USB file transfers working on linux (fuse-exfat doesn't work, have to build exfat-nofuse and run manually). but THEN I found that the files are getting silently corrupted in transit, even after updating to the latest version of Vitashell. I check the md5, transfer it to the vita, then transfer the file back to the PC and find it has a different hash. shit's fucked. Occasionally a ~30 MiB file will get through fine but anything larger than 100 MiB or so gets fucked. So I set up a dedicated wifi N router on my desk and I can now FTP reliably, but it's only averaging ~900 KiBs. Takes a full hour to put on a game . and now I'm fucking paranoid so it's going to take me a whole another hour to transfer it back so I can check the hash, since "vita homebrew checksum" isn't returning any results. fuck this gay earth
(42.05 KB 500x500 fuckk.jpg)
alright well I've had a few md5sum failures as well on FTP. wonder if the flash on the memory card is all fucked up? I ordered one of those SD2Vita devices in the meantime, they've now been out for a while so the hardware and software should have all the kinks worked out. In the meantime I'm going back to USB since if both USB and FTP are fucked then I might as well use the faster of the two.
(34.95 KB 675x176 fucking-sonyggers.png)
okay fucking hash errors left and right. transfer a ~3 GiB game three times, get three different checksums. I bought the fucking 64 GB sony proprietary crap card and apparently those stupid nip zipperheads were too dumb to implement wear leveling correctly. it's a known issue. fuck this gay earth.

I was having some trouble after upgrading my hacked switch from 6.2.0 to 9.2.0 so I could play newer games. As the first step, I upgraded newest atmosphere when I was still on 6.2.0 . This broke every single one of my games other than retroarch and made them unable to launch. That's when I knew it was going to take more digging to deal with this bullshit. Upgrading to 9.2.0 through Choi still left everything broken, instead of fixing it. Fuck. It turns out my problems WERE caused by my tranny pozzware and changing to NEUTOS did fix it. Thanks, based NEUTOS spammer. I guess the tranny squad started putting in extra work to sabotage those evil pirates or something. Some packages show up as 'bad nca signature - possibly malicious" when you try to install them with Tinfoil. About half of what I can find online don't trip this error, I think they are clean, signed nintendo eshop nsps. For most of the recent, in-demand games I can only find packages that trip this NCA signing error, I think these are converted XCI -> NSPs. It's always a bit of an annoyance to update, which is why I try to only do it about once a year/18 months to play the accumulated new releases. The problem with dropping out of the scene and not paying attention in those 18 months can mean that you miss out on a bunch of context when it is time to upgrade though. For now I'm set since I'm on a reasonably-recent firmware now, all my old games work, and I can install new games.

I've had an NS-Atmosphere dongle for a while now, but never used it. I just got it working now for payload injection for my current setup and figured I'd share. By default this shipped with ~something~ on it, it would succeed in launching a payload but the switch would just display some error message. So I set about looking to upgrade the payload on the dongle. The website offers a download for an updater that works on Ubuntu AMD64, a nice surprise. I downloaded the file 'ns-atmosphere-programmer-ubuntu-64bit-v01.zip', extracted it, then chmod +x and ran it from terminal. It wouldn't run barfed out some bullshit message about not finding libpng12.so.0 - "libpng12.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory". Poking around in /usr/lib, it looks like I have libpng16 but not libpng12. I attempted to make a libpng12.so.0 that was a symlink to libpng16 but this didn't work. So then I found and manually installed an old version of libpng12-0 that works. links and sha256 hashes at end of post. Now that the application launched successfully, the rest was easy. I followed the instructions on the website to put the dongle into programming mode - make sure the dongle is charged up ahead of time, turn the switch to 'on', make the usb connection with my linux PC, double-press the reset button and the led turned pink. shows up in /dev/ttyACM0. Then I selected /dev/ttyACM0 in the program settings, and used the 'payload.bin' from NEUTOS. It uploaded just fine and the dongle now boots me straight into working NEUTOS. I personally don't mind using a computer to launch payloads all that much, but a dongle is much more convenient, especially if to sell it or gift it to a normal person who doesn't computer much.

Pulled the switch out and downlooooooaded some new games for it. (For free cause fuck moralfags). The new pokemon actually seems alright. I was very unimpressed with the 3ds games and didn't manage to make it in more than 30 minutes before I got overwhelmed with japanese slice-of-life gayness. These new ones seem okay, like they sanded down some of the nipp shit to appease a western audience. There's a lot of minor quality-of-life improvements included, the biggest one seems to be that you basically default to having an EXP ALL in your party. I don't know if I'd pay money for this or what the online is like, but it seems fun enough for now on one-player.
Other reviews: >Animal Crossing Renders the world as a stupid cylinder. Completely destroys the immersion for me. Would have rather they just straight ported over the Gamecube version. Glad I didn't pay money for it. >Legend of Zelda - Link's Awakening - Seems alright. Wish there were options to disable/tone down some of the bokeh/toy-like rendering, feels a little excessive at times. I am a big fan of the original and play it every couple of years. Not sure if I'll do another playthrough on here or stick to to the original hardware. The game itself is great, just not sure if I want to play with the SOUL or NO SOUL graphics. >Legend of Zelda - Hyrule Warriors Got bored after 10 minutes. Cool soundtrack though. Might be fun for an hour or so with a friend. >Fire Emblem Seems alright. Wish you could turn off the stupid avatar markers over the characters, maybe there's a setting I haven't found. Tons of storyline crap but it's all skippable. Will put some more time into this and probably update later. >The Witcher 3 - Got bored after 10 minutes. Apparently it's a cool game but the olden-times settings don't appeal to me and trying to platform at 30fps on a little 7" screen doesn't appeal to me much either. If I decide to play this game it will probably be at 1080p/60+ on PC and even then I expect it might be boring. Deleted it for now because I'm not sure it's worth the 30 GiB on my SD card.
