first wesnoth thread
open source, so that seems pretty cool. shill me on this game with some more screenshots or webms or something. is it a tactics-type game like fire emblem or final fantasy tactics?
(514.60 KB 558x413 wesnoth 2.png)
>>659 yes it is a tactics game,turn based.the main campains are ok, and there are plenty of user made ones that you can download.But for me the best part of the game is the multiplayer.where you can play as diffrent races and factions,on multiple maps and get add ons for more off them as well as more maps.

This thread is for discussion of PC games. The focus will be on x86 games released in the last 25-30 years but feel free to discuss older x86 games or games for classic computers such as 68000- or 6502-based platforms. What are you playing these days?

>>646 You can't ally with Dagoth Ur. He will fight you even if you answer that you intend to continue his plan. Also, you could see gaining favor with the nigger elves as jewing them to the Empire's advantage. That's essentially what happens lorewise anyway, since you're aided by the Imperial spy network. Some of the nigger elves are actually cool, too, like Divayth Fyr (although he is very easy to upset and you have to kill him if you want a full Daedric set since I remember him having the only copy of one of the pauldrons). There is a lot of great optional content and the expansions are a lot of fun, if you're adamant about not completing the main quest. Maybe check out some mods. I was trying out a city mod while hosting multiplayer for some friends. I had to can it because it was doing something weird to OpenMW, but the town with the buff, shirtless Imperial grandpa was denser and larger. Lots of cool mods exist for Morrowind on Nexus, though. I can't remember if OpenMW is compatible with the GOG version, but updating the game engine could be a good idea if so. Just make sure you look up mod compatibility documentation for OpenMW on their wiki.

Games I have enjoyed recently on a half-recent intel graphics laptop running lunix: - Morrowind (OpenMW) - Strife: Veteran Edition (WINE) - System Shock: Enhanced Edition (WINE) - Duke Nukem 3D (eduke32 sourceport) also semi-enjoyed Jedi Knight - Dark Forces II but it's buggy enough through WINE that I'm not sure it's worth playing on linux
played a bunch of tis-100 and some shenzhen i/o. main limiting factor is the absolutely tiny program length requirements. basically every challenge would be dead simple to write in c/c++/python/whatever as a 40 line program with 3-5 variables but you've got to figure out some way to split the workload across multiple nodes. most of the time it's not even really true multithreaded, just figuring out how to split the program flow cleanly. fun but it makes your head hurt, especially when you know you could just cheapshit jam it all out on one node if you only had 1-3 more lines of code available. I'm working on a program that draws a windmill of peace in the TIS-100 image scratchpad. I'll post it here if I get it figured out well.
Finished my Deus Ex playthrough. ending notes: based and tedpilled . Feels kind of like they ran out of money at the very end though, I would have liked at least a ~10 second shot of how the future ends up, sort of like how Fallout 3 gives you a quick rundown at the end. Overall my save file has me at only the ~22 hour mark but I'm pretty sure I spent about double that thanks to all the saving and reloading. It felt much longer than the 22 hours of content anyways since everything is so intense. very, very good.

Nintendo 64 thread
>>651 I hooked up my N64 for the first time in a while. Been trying out a few romhacks to see what boots on actual hardware. So far: -Animal Crossing English Translation ( Animal Forest/Doubutso No Mari) -Super Mario 74 On Console -Zelda Ocarina of Time Randomizer Been mostly playing the randomized zelda rom. It's about 2/3 fun and 1/3 frustrating. Since crucial items like the bomb bag can be literally anywhere and I don't remember the location of every single crate/etc and exactly what prerequisites are required to reach it. There's a million settings when you run the randomizer though so maybe checking "one important item per dungeon" would have done that. It took me a couple false starts before I found a set of options I was mostly happy with and I don't want to restart again now. Just felt a little lame having to check the spoiler log for some random shit but whatever. The main two options I had to toggle that weren't defaults were setting Z-targeting back to "toggle" mode, like in the vanilla game, and hiding the D-Pad item HUD, again like the vanilla game. I wanted it to look and feel just like the original for the most part, except for the bizarro item locations. I'll probably beat it then let it sit for a few years until it's fresh again. If I do another playthrough I'll probably go balls to the wall and randomize as much as I can. Overall pretty good experience.
>>652 O cool, what is SM74 like? I've been meaning to get myself a modded cartridge to try all of the romhacks out. Also the various console mods are crazy nowadays, full RGB, HDMI N64's!
SM74c seems pretty cool. The levels are a bit... bland or empty feeling and not as aesthetic as compared to the vanilla game but they're all new to explore and find stars in so I can't complain. It's just about right on the difficulty level too, at least the 10 stars I got - a bit harder than the usual game but doesn't require you to know every single speedrunner trick or retry jumps 100 times like some bad SMW hacks I've tried. The patching process to make it work on console was a pain in the ass though, you have to patch the original patch with the 'on console' patch, then apply that patch to the rom. took me a while and a bunch of reading READMEs to get ir right. >RGB N64. This is an easy mod, I did it myself. Just get a ~$12 little circuit board off ebay, install it over the pins and run three wires. Pretty much anyone who solders can do this, and it's pretty forgiving even to beginners. Then get a SNES euro-scart cable (includes the wires for RGB). The hard part then is finding something to plug it into. I run the RGB modded N64 into a 15 khz RGB->YPbPr converter on a ~2000 era trinitron when i'm running an analog setup. End quality is great but it's a real rats nest of cables and hard-to-find adapters to get it there. it's worth it though, fuck chrominance blur right in the anus. >HDMI N64 Got this one too, but I was a pleb and paid for a premodded one. I think I could handle the soldering myself but I didn't really see anyone selling single copies of the mod kit, the guy was mostly selling quantities of 10 minimum and I didn't really feel like doing that and reselling. This is what I've got plugged in right now into a big flat screen. Quality is better than the framemeister since the signal stays digital the whole way. Image quality looks best at the 1080 mode (box fills pixels) but adds one frame's worth (~16 ms) of lag. I use this 90% of the time. "Direct mode" at 480p doesn't add any lag/only a few ms of lag but most tvs will have some garbage "upscaling" bullshit that fux with your pixels. So I only use this for games or parts in games where lag is absolutely critical. Overall the HDMI mod is pretty sick and is becoming more and more relevant now that lots TVs are dropping analog video inputs altogether or annoying adapters. My new flat screen only has a CVBS input, no s-vid or component and it needs an adapter that didn't even ship with the tv so I had to order one separately. >Flash carts. These are great, just have to pack a single cartridge with my console these days, saves tons of space. I had one of the offbrand ones that you have to reset before turning off to save, worked just fine except if you forget to press reset before turning off. Gave that one to a friend when I got my everdrive 64. Has a fullset on there, every game works and boots right up. shit's tight, no complaints.

I have two everdrives. I noticed something weird with LSDJ. My older-style Everdrive made in 2014 seems to only be able to hold one song at once, and there's a "reset memory" option where the "save/load song" option should be. When I boot up the exact same lsdj rom on my 2018 everdrive it gives me the option to load and save multiple songs. I thought I was going crazy last night when I couldn't find the save/load option until I figured this out.

Just started in on Castlevania: Aria of Sorrow Alter. It's a full conversion of Aria of Sorrow with the map changed up. I like it so far. At this point I have the original map basically memorized so this brings back the exploration feel to the game. Get it at romhacking, use an IPS patcher. I use lazy_ips.py on GNU/Linux, works great for me.
Beat all but the last level of Gameboy Wars Turbo (English translation patch). It's from the Wars series, which didn't get an english release until the "Advance Wars" games for GBA and DS. It's a little clunky but great fun on an old DMG. Also been playing a bit of Harvest Moon on the old DMG.Seems alright so far, I'm early on with a decent field of turnips and potatoes. Hopefully I won't let grandpa down. I really liked "Harvest Moon - Friends of Mineral Town" for GBA but right now I'm in a DMG mood lately.
Playing a bit of Pokemon Pinball on a flash cart. No rumble but also the cart doesn't stick out and have a AAA battery that eventually leaks flaky alkaline crap all over your stuff. Fair trade off. Anyways it's pretty fun, but also frustrating, Always interesting to revisit the games you played as a kid with fresh eyes, I could never figure out how exactly to activate the evolve pokemon mode but with the power of The Scientific Method™ I've now realized you have to shoot the loop to the left three times to fill the meter then it opens. Still a pain in the ass because it's a pretty narrow angular window to hit and I keep accidentally activating "change location" mode. overall pretty good, A+ music

bump for the best handhold console ever
I've been playing a little bit of Crash Bandicoot - Crash of the Titans. It's piss easy and sort of mindless but pretty fun so far. Run around on the back of some big monkeys or triceratops or whatever and bitchslap scientists while collecting gems. makes for alright little 5 minute bursts here and there.
playan on mah 100x, ghosting is very visible as in i get a headache after 5 mins of playan not visible in games running on engines similar to mh f1/2/u/3rd or mgs pw ones 1000 bros, lets talk about the screen of the best model, colors and brightness aside
>>638 see >>442 The best screen is the PSP Go if you're okay with the smaller size (3.8 vs 4.3) and you don't mind paying out the ass for one. Very bright, no ghosting, no artifacts. The next best is the 3000 since it doesn't ghost much at all but the interlaced update is very distracting in its own way. 2000 is decently bright and has no weird update artifacts but it ghosts like hell. Very slow pixel transitions from dark-to-light. Cars in Gran Turismo look like they're dragging around big ghost wheels. I've never owned a 1000 myself so I can only tell you about the three models above. I have heard people discuss that there were three different models of screens in the 1000 series though, with some supposedly better than others. There are pdf spec sheets floating around on the internet if you can track down the specific panel numbers. t. lcd man

Any gaming platform that isn't leftist? Anonymous 08/11/2020 (Tue) 20:59:03 No. 640 [Reply] [Last]
Steam is moderated by communists and jews GOG is moderated by leftists and make tranny games now And as far as I know, every other platform (Epic, EA, Activision, etc) has pledged allegiance to communist mob groups (BLM) Is there anywhere that I can just play games and be left alone? That I can use their official forums and not see leftists/communists spewing their rhetoric while anyone who dissents is banned?
>>640 GOG is still your best bet. They're a Polish company and Poland is one of the last bastions of anti-LGBT stuff in government. Even if some of the money goes to bad actors, having a decent chunk of it being put into the Polish economy is a positive. Nintendo is still decent, but of course their Nintendo of America branch is the worst about "progressive" stuff. Steam is still run by Gabe Newell who is good I believe. Of course it has bad actors within it, but it's not corrupted entirely. Of course you can always just pirate your games and only pay the developers that you trust. If you ever need a place to discuss games or how progressive stuff is I suggest going here: https://kotakuinaction2.win/
buy games from gog and download the offline installers. that or just pirate them, pretty much every game available on gog can be easily pirated. then back up those offline installers to a NAS + burn a DVD or something. then just post about the games here. >wanting to use the official forums >playing any game released after 2004, 2008 at the very latest >playing any form of online multiplayer no point

Giving Up Gaming; Selling GOG Games at 50%-75% Sale Anonymous 06/26/2020 (Fri) 21:25:44 No. 622 [Reply] [Last]
I'm giving up gaming as a hobby and am moving on with my life. GOG has agreed to let me trade my library in to them for credit. I want to use this credit to buy games for ya'll. Find a game, any price, and I'll buy it for you in full using the credit in exchange for only half or a quarter of the price being repaid in crypto. We can barter on it. Email me at gator milk books at proton mail dot com. Reply in the thread or message for questions. Also selling physical games at request.
By the way, it's in the title on my name "Anonymous," but email me at gator milk books at proton mail dot com if you are interested.

Roadwar 2000 is also interesting, even though it's more of a strategy game. The Apple IIGS, Atari ST, and Amiga versions are quite a bit nicer-looking than the DOS one, if that matters to you (in fact, even the C64 port looks better!)

>>512 >>511 >>510 >>509 >>508 >>506 Thanks for the reccomendations, sorry for not replying sooner, I was pretty drunk when I posted this. It's not an RPG, but if you haven't played the first jak&daxter then I strongly recommend it (PCSX2 worked for me), just don't bother 100%ing it. Hopefully it may bring you some joy. I only played it lately, so no chance this is a nostalgia-goggles recommendation, it's genuinely fun.
