N64 Thread Anonymous 08/28/2020 (Fri) 03:25:09 No. 651 [Reply] [Last]
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.

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.

And after using "gray death" and causing chaos he would have the power he needed to use his augmented products implanted on people to control on everyone

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.
(347.69 KB 888x473 ns-atmosphere-dongle-switch.png)
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.
